800 Horsepower Audi RS6 Avant Battles a 950 Horsepower, 1967 Camaro Pikes Peak
Hoonigan are back with another crazy drag race on their YouTube channel. This time, it’s two completely different cars from two completely different eras. It’s old school versus new school and American versus European, as a mildly modified Audi RS6 Avant take on a purpose-built, 1967 Pikes Peak Chevrolet Camaro.
2022 Chevrolet Tahoe
With the 2021 model year, the Tahoe received a generational upgrade that included the addition of a few more trims and various improvements inside and out. For the upcoming 2022 model year, Chevrolet has updated the already well-equipped Tahoe with newer colors, advanced features, and some other goodies. The 2022 Tahoe competes with the likes of the 2022 Ford Expedition (starting MSRP: $53,000 est.) and the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer (starting MSRP: $59,995). With an expected starting price of around $52,000, is this the full-size SUV the one you should consider? Let’s dig deeper.
Dodge Durango Hellcat takes on the Camaro ZL1 and Mustang GT 5.0 Coyote
The Drag Racing and Car Stuff channel has put out yet another fun video. This time, a highly tuned Durango Hellcat goes up against a Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang in a couple of quarter-mile passes, at the Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina. The specs of the cars in contention are unknown, but it is highly unlikely that they’re stock.
2021 Chevrolet Suburban Diesel - Driven
Chevrolet debuted the twelfth-gen of the Suburban in December 2019. The SUV came out looking rejuvenated and reinvigorated. Introduced as the 2021 model year Suburban, the SUV was now based on a new platform, featured a new diesel engine option, and came with a range-topping High Country trim. Chevy even capitalized on space optimization, plonked in a new suspension setup, and turned all the screws in the right direction to make this a complete package.
We recently laid our hands on the 2021 Chevy Suburban in the Premier trim with the Duramax diesel engine. Our example was finished in a black exterior shade and looked exquisite, to say the least. It is definitely one of the best full-size SUVs that you can buy today with a five-digit budget.
Chevrolet ZRX - The Raptor and TRX-Rivalling Off-Road Performance Truck That Chevy Desperately Needs
GM has been quite active in the pickup truck space since the beginning. It has even bifurcated its trucks between two brands – Chevrolet and GMC – and combined, both of them rake up pretty good numbers. Chevy brings in more sales as opposed to GMC and has managed to keep up with Ford and Ram in terms of models and trim levels on each of them. It even announced an electric Silverado that could arrive in a couple of years. However, the automaker has lagged in the case of a performance off-road truck. There are Silverado trims with off-roading prowess, but there’s no standalone model like the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram 1500 TRX.
There were rumors of Chevy working on one such product, but there’s still no concrete detail. It was rumored to be called the ZRX, but those were mere speculations. Chevy had trademarked the ‘ZRX’ moniker sometime back, but there seems to be no development on that front thus far. Is the automaker missing out on something big by not offering a performance off-road truck to the market? We sure think so.
After Ford and Ram, Chevy Decides to Come up With an Off-Road-Ready Version of the Silverado Truck
Chevy is taking baby steps towards competing with the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 in the off-roading, performance truck department. Out of the Big Three, Chevy is the only one not to offer a full-fledged off-road model for the Silverado. Ford has the F-150 Raptor (and Raptor R V-8 in the works), whereas Ram has the 1500 TRX. While Chevy hasn’t come up with a standalone off-roading model yet, it has teased a new trim, something similar to what Ford does with the Tremor and Ram does with the 1500 Rebel. Chevy has plans to offer the Silverado in the ZR2 outfit that will give you the freedom to take your bowtie truck off the roads without much hesitation. Well, better late than never!
SVE Unveils the 700-Horsepower Yenko Silverado That Chevy Won’t Built
SVE has been associated with GM for a very long time. In over three decades, the aftermarket company has tuned over 65,000 vehicles. SVE made headlines when it revived the Syclone badge for Canyon-based 2019 and 2021 models.
The company even builds Silverado-based Yenko S/C editions. The company released an 800-horsepower version of the truck last year. Now, it has come up with a 710-horsepower iteration of this Yenko S/C called the California Edition. It will be available across the Silverado trim line and will be limited to just 50 examples.
This 1959 Chevy Apache Work Truck Restomod Includes A V-8 Engine That Makes Over 500 Horses
American trucks from back in the day are some of the hottest restomod projects that aftermarket companies and individuals are taking up today. We generally see a lot of Ford F100s go through the restomod process, but here we have a truck that isn’t quite as popular. This is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache work truck that was part of the ‘Task Force’ series launched by the bowtie back in the 50s. The restomod includes putting the Apache on a new chassis, tossing in a V-8 engine, and fitting a four-wheel-drive system to make it a practical, daily driver work truck, as opposed to a pavement pickup like the yesteryear GMC Syclone.
Chevrolet Confirms An Electric Silverado, But Will It Be a Rebadged Hummer EV?
It was pretty hard to digest that one of the top truck manufacturers in the U.S., Chevrolet, was mum about electric trucks. At a time where every EV manufacturer was coming up with an offering to the open-bed segment, Chevy was out of the limelight for a very long time. Ford, on the other hand, has been active for years now, right from challenging Tesla to making official announcements.
But finally, the Bowtie has stepped up and officially announced its first-ever electric pickup truck in the form of the Silverado EV. And the icing on the cake? A range of 400 miles!
Lingenfelter May Have Just Made the Chevy Blazer Desirable - Maybe
Indiana-based Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, known for its GM builds, has come up with a package for the Blazer that turns it into a powerful SUV. It includes the supercharger that adds almost 150 horses to the V-6’s stock power output. There are some exterior mods as well, but they are quite subtle and won’t look suspiciously different in a crowd. It’s still no performance SUV, but it will make the Blazer look a little more desirable.
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV
With a barrage of mass-produced EVs hitting the scene lately, Chevy’s offering to the segment, the Bolt, was looking more and more expensive by the day. Paying over $40,000 for a small hatch didn’t make much sense when you could get a competent product like Tesla Model 3 for that money. So, for the 2022 model, the automaker introduced some new features and reduced the price by $5,000!
However, to not create a vacuum and let the competition capitalize on it, the Bowtie also introduced a bigger “SUV-like” product called the Bolt EUV. It is priced on par with the outgoing Bolt and happens to be the first Chevy product to be offered with Super Cruise. Is this going to be the next-big-thing for the automaker in the EV market?
The Chevy Silverado Signature Edition Puts the Camaro to Shame
Performance trucks have been there for a very long time, but they are finally becoming mainstream now. While automakers are rolling out high-performance pickup trucks, aftermarket companies have also upped the ante to make them better than factory products. The new Callaway Silverado Signature Edition is the latest example. This big, burly truck with a V-8 engine has enough power and mechanical tech to beat even the Chevy Camaro in a straight-line race. Oh, what a sight that must be!
2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV
With growing competition in the so-called affordable EV segment, Chevy had to make sure its offering, the Bolt, didn’t fade away into oblivion. For the 2022 model year, Chevy has refreshed the Bolt EV and simultaneously introduced an SUV-esque version of it called the Bolt EUV. The Chevy Bolt has been around for quite some time and can be credited with being one of the first mainstream automakers to have a solid EV offering. However, with a growing number of rivals, Chevy had to somehow make the Bolt look like a bang-for-the-buck product and not lose plot to the likes of Tesla.
While the range and the power outputs remain the same, the 2022 Bolt comes with refreshed interior and exterior, more standard kit, and a lower starting price. It definitely looks like a much better package overall.
Quick Facts About the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV
This is the new and improved 2022 Chevrolet Bolt hatchback, and this is its slightly bigger, more crossover-looking brother, the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV. They’re both all-electric vehicles with a range of at least 250 miles on a single charge, and they cost from $32,000. In other words, less than the outgoing Bolt, but with more standard kit. So, let’s see what’s what with these electric cars that are meant to get the masses rolling on electrons.
