PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition

Unveiled at the 2019 SEMA Show, the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is, in fact, the road-going, street-legal offspring of the Silverado 2500 HD Carhartt concept car shown back in 2016. Only this time, you will be able to actually get one from your Chevy dealership, provided you show enough patience to wait until the fall of 2020 when deliveries are slated to kick off.

Details are scarce for the time being and the 12-month waiting window is certainly far from appealing, but there are plenty of reasons to jump for joy. The Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition is based on the Silverado 2500 LTZ, which means that in theory, it should be available with a V-8 engine. The only question is which one, as Chevy is offering a choice of two V-8s for the LTZ: a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the Genovation GXE Electric Corvette Hit a New Top Speed

An all-electric Chevrolet Corvette might have seemed like an odd idea a decade ago, but it’s an acceptable thought in 2019. That’s because Chevy already announced plans to electrify the Corvette but, more importantly, it’s because some companies actually converted existing Corvettes to accept EV drivetrains. Genovation is one of the companies, and its modified C7 Corvette is capable of top speeds in excess of 200 mph. Specifically, the GXE just hit a top speed of 210 mph, a benchmark that many sports cars and even some supercars can only dream of.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Resurrection ZL1 1LE Camaro

John Hennessey is bringing some divine power to the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. The model is called the Hennessey Resurrection, but don’t confuse the perceived grace attached to its name. The Resurrection is a super-limited, take-no-prisoners, 1,200 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that can lay waste to any ill-fated automotive soul that gets in its way. Hennessey only plans to build 24 units of the Resurrection with each model priced at around $200,000. That’s right. If you want to be showered by the grace of the Resurrection, you need to pay up some serious cash for the opportunity. This is why it’s worth every penny.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet E-10 Concept

Chevrolet brought a very unique pickup truck to SEMA that is a sweet blend of the company’s rich history and the ‘electrifying’ future. Called the E-10 concept, the product has reincarnated from a 1962 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck. If you’ve been following the concepts at SEMA this year, you will immediately strike a comparison with the Dodge Lowliner. However, this low-slung pickup truck comes with an electric powertrain under the hood. So, does this bold truck live up to the hype it has created over the last couple of days? It sure does!

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet COPO Camaro John Force Edition

Another year, another Chevrolet COPO Camaro. That’s what we can expect at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show when the Bowtie unleashes its latest drag racing masterpiece. A total of 70 units of the 2020 Chevrolet COPO Camaro will be made, but only 69 will be unleashed to the masses. The other one — this one — is headed to the auction block, and if looks could fetch a million dollars, the one-off COPO Camaro John Force Edition will be drenched in a downpour of benjamins once it hits the auction block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction in January 2020. But before it takes the stage, the one-off Chevrolet COPO Camaro John Force Edition will be in attendance at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. It’s probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing it up close and personal before some deep-pocketed fellow brings it home with him next year.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Is Quicker to 60 MPH Than the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 – This Video Tells Us Why

Besides being as American as hot dogs, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 and the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 sit at the very top of their respective makers performance pyramid. Sure, the Blue Oval also has the Ford GT muscle to flex, but for now, we’ll focus on the two, specifically how quick ar they to 60 miles per hour from a dead stop. Turns out, the mid-engined C8 is the nimbler of the two, despite holding an obvious power disadvantage. How’s that possible? Bear with us to find out.

PostHeaderIcon If You Can’t Wait for The Chevrolet Corvette C8 to Get The LEGO Treatment, Here’s How You Can Build One From the Ground Up

Like most hotly anticipated cars, there’s a segment of the car-loving population that is also into the hobby of collecting scaled versions of premium cars, or in some cases, LEGO versions of the same premium cars. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 counts as one of the most anticipated cars of the car, but don’t expect to see it in LEGO form anytime soon. What you can do, instead, is take matters into your hands — like one person did — and build a 1:20 scale version of the Corvette C8 using used LEGO bricks. It’s not an official LEGO product, but this LEGO Corvette C8 should do until the real licensed one comes out, if it ever does.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Traverse – Driven

The Chevy Traverse had an identity complex during its first 8 years of life, with the first-gen model being a weird blend of crossover and minivan with GM’s old, not-so-attractive styling inside and out. Fortunately, the 2018 model year became the host of the second-gen Traverse, and it came with a true SUV appearance that doesn’t require the hardcore (and heavy) full-size truck DNA under the metal. As the roomiest three-row SUV on the market without those full-size truck underpinnings, we’ve been wondering how the second-gen Traverse really holds up against competitors like the Ford Explorer and Mazda CX-9. Finally, after two years on the market, we finally got the chance to get behind the wheel to find out for ourselves. This is our experience with the 2020 Chevy Traverse.

PostHeaderIcon The Hennessey C7 Corvette ZR1 HPE 1200 Can Kick the Hell Out of a McLaren 720S

The McLaren 720S was built with one thing and mind and one thing only. And that’s blistering performance through a combination of power and lightness. The C7 Corvette ZR1 is a nod to the same creed, but it lacks the McLaren’s innate ability to dance around a twisty circuit. While it’s obviously not as light on its feet like the Macca, this particular ZR1 got a helping hand from America’s controversial tuner Hennessey. The helping hand is the HPE 1200 upgrade, one that turned the Corvette into a McLaren 720S squasher. Or dit it?

PostHeaderIcon The GM Defense ISV is One Bad Ass Chevy Colorado

GM Defense is General Motors’ wing that makes military vehicles. The company has some impeccable vehicles that cater to the needs of troops, and now, it has come out with a new prototype for an Infantry Squad Vehicle. This prototype is based on the Chevy Colorado ZR2, and the company has customized the truck as per the U.S. military’s requirements. This is just a prototype for now, though, and if it fits the bill, GM Defense could land a big order from the military. Do you think this will get the job done?

PostHeaderIcon Does the 2020 Chevy C8.R Have What It Takes to Win Championships?

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has arrived, and it is a doozy. The Corvette racer is all set to make its debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 25, 2020. But before it lays the smackdown on the race track, the Corvette C8.R takes its turn under the spotlight where it’s properly getting the attention it deserves. The Corvette C8.R isn’t just a race car; it also happens to be Chevrolet’s first-ever mid-engine race car to compete in IMSA’s GTLM class. It’s also Chevrolet’s first clean sheet race car design racer since the C5.R debuted in 1999. Through all these firsts, the Corvette C8.R racer takes its place as Chevrolet’s next warhorse, succeeding a race car — the Corvette CR.7 — that won 16 races in its time, including the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. Can the C8.R replicate that kind of success? Only time will tell. For now, let’s enjoy the fact that the C8.R is here, and it’s ready to stake its claim as the next great Corvette racer.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Colorado

Chevy has tasted great success with the Colorado in the past years. The pickup truck is one of the most popular offerings in the pickup truck segment currently. It has had its fair share of wars with the Toyota Tacoma, but it still holds a strong foot in the segment. The current-gen Colorado has been there for a long time, and finally, the company has decided to introduce the 2021 facelift. At the onset, the truck looks really fresh and will surely spice up things in the segment. But, will it be able to inch closer to the Japanese in terms of sales figures? Also, what about its cousin, the GMC Canyon?

PostHeaderIcon The Corvette C8.R Isn’t The First Mid-Engined Racer With That Logo On The Hood

We were all pleased when, right after unveiling in front of the world the first Corvette to feature a hardtop at the Kennedy Space Center, Chevy also showed us the C8.R, Corvette Racing’s new weapon for GTE competitions from 2020 onwards. The race car had previously been teased during the launch event of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 Coupe and we were aware that Chevy planned to take the wraps off both the C8 Convertible and the C8.R during the same event but many still were surprised by the appearance of the silver winged warrior. What could also surprise you is that this isn’t the first mid-engined race car that raced under the Corvette banner.

The moment we laid eyes on the Corvette C8, we immediately started picturing it with a big diffuser in the back, a large splitter in the front, big rims hugged by wide, slick racing rubber, and a carbon-fiber wing hanging from the back. We’d seen glimpses of the C8.R testing at Sebring Raceway in Florida back in December of last year but, at the time, GM was tight-lipped on the subject and it took many months before the American automaker finally confirmed the C7.R will become the swansong of the successful line of front-engined GT racing cars as the C8.R will make the transition to the rear-mid-engine layout on the circuits as well.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet’s Open-Top 2020 Corvette C8 Weighs 77 Pounds More Than The Coupe

Unlike its coupe sibling, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible didn’t get to revel in the hype that usually precedes an important launch. It’s not that the open-top 2020 Corvette C8 isn’t important – in fact, it’s the first Vette fitted with a hardtop – but its reveal was announced back when Chevy was still busy introducing the fixed roof C8 to the world.

The Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible has made its debut, but Chevy decided to surprise us by showing off the all-new Chevy C8 Corvette C8.R at the same time. The car we see here is No.4, but there’s also a No. 3 car that wears a yellow primary color with silver accents – basically the opposite of No. 4 – that hardens back to the GTLM Racing Corvettes that we’ve enjoyed over the last two decades. There are no specifications available for the C8.R quite yet, but we’ll get to see it make its racing debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2020.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible Gallery

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible has arrived with a hardtop roof, an increase of 80 pounds or so in weight, and some other significant changes. Highlights include a new rear hatch that doesn’t facilitate viewing of the V-8 hidden behind the rear seats and, now, the rear trunk has its own dedicated cover as opposed to being integrated with the rear hatch as we see on the coupe – this was necessary for the hardtop to be stored when retracted. This might seem a little strange, but it does offer one big benefit: The Chevy C8 Corvette Convertible has the same amount of rear trunk storage as the coupe!

Power output of 495 horsepower with the performance exhaust has remained the same, and Chevy claims the Corvette Convertible can hit 60 mph in around 3 seconds, just a hair slower than the Coupe.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Silverado Midnight and Rally Editions

The State Fair of Texas doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves in the auto industry. It’s not a car show in the traditional sense, but it has hosted several important debuts in recent years. This year, the State Fair of Texas welcomes a handful of automakers, including Chevrolet and a pair of 2020 Silverado 1500 models that have been given the Midnight and Rally special edition monikers, respectively.

Both special edition versions of the 2020 Silverado will be available in Chevrolet dealerships by the end of the year, though interested customers can order their rides in the same dealerships next month. The automaker hasn’t announced pricing details, though past examples of the Silverado Midnight and Rally Editions have fetched north of $40,000 to $45,000, and that’s without options.
