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!
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!
2021 Chevrolet Traverse High Country - Driven
The Chevrolet Traverse is a three-row SUV that can best be described as a better-looking and equally practical alternative to a minivan. It offers the best cargo space in the segment, and courtesy of its length and wheelbase, it doesn’t come with a cramped third row. A V-6 engine is the only option offered across the range, but will suffice the needs of most of the owners. There is no dearth of features, but most of them are either optional or offered only in the top trim, which means a complete, loaded SUV will be quite pricey. We got to test the Chevy Traverse in its top avatar, the High Country trim, with an all-wheel-drive configuration, and here are our impressions of this bowtie product.
Check Out The Ringbrothers Chevy K5 Blazer Built For Rapper Future
If you’re a fan of restomods, you probably know that Ringbrothers is one of the best names in the business. The Wisconsin-based company is know for building tremendous restomod vehicles out of classic muscle cars, all of which stole the show at specific events across the U.S. in recent years. But the company also has an affinity for old American SUVs like the Chevrolet K5 Blazer. A while back they built the Seaker, a 430-horsepower, LS3-powered Blazer. Come 2020 and Ringbrothers unveiled a new custom SUV designed for American rapper and singer Future.
This Chevy Silverado Limo Seems Too Good To Be True
I’m quite sure that the majority of the people find pickup trucks to be rather spacious and few will complain about them being congested or stuffed or anything like that. But, this particular truck owner wanted something larger than life and the end result seems too good to be true.
The point in case here is a Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Dually that has been turned into a seven-door limo that can perhaps accommodate all of Colorado! The truck features a lot of other changes, and is now up for sale. Off-topic, but is there a way to know if this stretched Silverado is visible from the moon?
Chevrolet Details The 2021 Multi-Flex Tailgate
Chevrolet is here with a versatile tailgate of its own called the Multi-Flex tailgate. As expected, it is carried over as it is from the GMC trucks and given a new name. These tailgates certainly have an extra advantage over the simple ones that don’t offer any other function except for opening and closing. However, the Multi-Flex tailgate wasn’t the only news here; the 2021 models will come with some new standard features and better tow ratings.
The Chevy Silverado Will Finally Have a Cool Tailgate
First, it was the war of who’s got the biggest grille. Now the focus has shifted to tailgates. The main unique selling points of pickup trucks are cargo beds. While there isn’t much you can do in that aspect apart from offering different types of Tonneau covers, or illumination, or different material for the base. Ram and GMC changed the game when they launch tailgates that can be used more efficiently. These tailgates became the talk of the town, but surprisingly, the other players in the market, Ford and Chevrolet, didn’t make a move. Although we’re yet to see the former do something about it, Chevrolet has made its move.
The automaker has announced a “MultiFlex” tailgate that will be available for the 2021 Silverado. There isn’t a lot known yet, but Chevy will drop more details about it on September 21.
New Info On the Chevy Silverado ZR2 Proves It Won’t Compete With the Ram 1500 TRX or Ford F-150 Raptor
Full-size performance off-road trucks are picking up heat lately and it has piqued the interest of truck manufacturers and aftermarket companies alike. There was just one significant production-truck – the Ford F-150 Raptor – in this niche until recently, but Ram joined the fray with the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. We knew that Ram was working on the Raptor-killer even since it unveiled the TRX concept back in 2016, but there was also news about Chevy working on a product to take on these two.
However, Muscle Cars and Trucks has now reported that what we thought would be Chevy’s offering to the segment is just an off-road truck that won’t go up against the Raptor and the TRX.
2021 Chevrolet Silverado Yenko S/C By SVE
SVE is back again with yet another powerful Chevy build. The tuner is known to customize GM trucks and has customized over 65,000 vehicles in its 25-year history to date. It even acquired rights to reincarnate the Syclone badge that was synonymous with fast trucks and built two editions of it; a 2019 Syclone and a 2021 Syclone. This time around, the company has laid its hands on a Silverado and given it a mighty boost. Called the Silverado Yenko S/C, the truck now boasts a V-8 engine that makes 800 horses! This truck should be your pick if you are looking for a fast, powerful full-size pickup truck.

Are You Willing To Spend $80,000 On a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado RST?
These days, people find stock vehicles to be boring and generally add stuff to make them more personal and exclusive. Last year, Jeep had said that a customer spends an average $800 on accessories on a Wrangler and $1,000 on a Gladiator. This shows that people love spending money on add-ons and accessories for their vehicles.
Then there are also some folks who spend almost the same amount of money on accessories that they spent on the vehicle itself. Here’s one such example of a $40,000 Chevy Silverado RST with extra accessories worth $38,000.
The Ford Raptor-Killing Chevy Silverado ZRX Could Have a Supercharged 6.2-liter V-8
It looks like the 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has woken everyone up. The Rebel TRX has garnered so much attention that the rivals have decided to take stock on where they stand in this niche. Now, it looks like GM has already started working towards building a Rebel TRX and F-150 Raptor killer.
According to TFLtruck, GM is allegedly working on a supercharged version of the 6.2-liter V-8 mill. This could be plonked under the hood of Chevy Silverado 1500’s off-road alter ego, the Silverado ZRX. This rumor is based on an anonymous tip received by the outlet, so we’d ask you to take it with a pinch of salt.
Truck for Sale: 2015 Chevy Colorado with 700-HP Cadillac ATS-V Engine
Trucks with hot engines are the norm these days, right? The upcoming 2021 Ram Rebel TRX is all the rage these days. Then there’s the Ranger Raptor that’s yet to hit U.S. shores.
However, many aftermarket companies are capitalizing on this vacuum and building special packages and kits for existing trucks. However, these trucks come with big tires, wide fenders, and generally focus on off-roading prowess. But, do you remember a time when automakers used to build fast trucks? Well, North Carolina-based tuner Mallett Performance has turned the clock back and is offering this one-off highly-customized Chevy Colorado for just $63,500. Are you interested?
Here’s What One Owner Doesn’t Like About His 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette
Hugely talked-about before launch and hugely talked-about after launch. That’s what we can say, in short, about the amount of coverage received by the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette. And for good reason. It’s Chevy’s first-ever mid-engined Vette and a cracking sports cars that offers thrills for a lot less money that some of its fancier rivals. As it turns out, though, the C8 Corvette is not perfect. But then again, what car is?
What Do You Really Get From the $59,995 Base Chevy C8 Corvette?
At the time of writing, Chevrolet’s website specified an entry-level price tag of $58,900 applied to the C8 Corvette, although at launch, the mid-engined sports car was announced with a $59,995 starting sticker.
Tweaking prices up and down is a common practice so there’s no surprise here, not when car sales are frozen by the COVID-19 pandemic. But let’s say your budget for a new 2020 C8 Corvette only lets you buy the entry-level variant. You’d obviously want to know exactly what features are you getting, right? But sometimes features lists can be overwhelming and a hands-on approach works better in some cases. With no showrooms open, though, let this video guide to what $59,995 gets you in a base 1LT Chevy C8 Corvette.
Here’s How the C8 Corvette Fares Against the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500
In the market for an American performance coupé and in a pickle when it comes to picking your poison? Should it be a sports car? Should it be a muscle car? Tough choice, right?
Well, lucky for you, this guy took both the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette and the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 on a circuit to tell you how each of them behaves when pushed hard on a winding course.
The Best Pickup Trucks for 2020
There’s no denying that pickup trucks are America’s favorite vehicles. Ford F-Series has consistently topped the sales charts for 42 consecutive years now. There are a lot of other automakers with such offerings as well. The segment is highly competitive and you can get confused with what to pick. There is a different variant or a different model altogether in every $1,000 bracket. To help you with this dilemma, we’ve compiled a list of 10 best pickup trucks, ranging from midsize trucks, to full-size, and to heavy-duty ones.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse
Chevy’s SUV lineup is going through a lot of hustle and bustle lately. In December last year, the American automaker revealed the all-new Tahoe and Suburban. A month later, they reincarnated the Trailblazer moniker to add a seventh SUV/Crossover in the lineup.
Now, they have refreshed the Traverse. The Traverse wasn’t a good-looking vehicle until 2018 when it went through a rejig. The SUV is a bit more attractive now and that resulted in sales going up. In 2019, the Traverse recorded its best sales figures since its inception, and Chevrolet decided to keep the upward trend going by refreshing it again for the 2021 model.
The 2021 Chevy Traverse hasn’t gone through a lot of changes, but it is different from what we’ve been seeing in the last two years. This new model now looks meaner, sharper, and a lot more aggressive. The biggest difference comes in the form of new safety tech that Chevy seems to be introducing on all its refreshed models. The previous big change worked like a charm for the Traverse, but can this refresh replicate the same?
A NOS’d Chevrolet Corvette C8 Can Run 10-Second Quarter Miles
We can safely assume that we’ve got past the moment where the mid-engined Corvette C8 is an absolute novelty. Articles have been written, videos have been posted on YouTube, so we already know pretty much everything there is to know about Chevy’s first-ever Corvette to have its engine mounted between the cabin and the rear axle.
As the new C8 starts to populate dealerships and owner driveways, a different kind of online content is bound to pop up, including dyno runs and drag racing. Speaking of the latter, here’s a video of a Chevy Corvette C8 running on a shot of nitrous oxide and absolutely owning the drag strip.
Rendering: If the Chevy Camaro Was Mid-Engined, It Would Look Very Lamborghini-ish
2019’s most notable event in the car world must be, without too many doubts, the debut of the mid-engined 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8. Chevrolet has been brewing one for such a long that that it must have come as a relief for everyone involved in the project.
But what if Chevy tricked down the mid-engine blueprints to the Camaro? Would it enrage its fan base or will it send everyone jumping for joy? Well, that’s hard to anticipate although such a move could definitely split the camps. But design-wise, a mid-engined Camaro could end up looking like a Lamborghini Huracan, if we are to take for good a rendering that’s been shared on the internet over the past days.
2020 Chevrolet Tahoe By Callaway
Callaway is not known to be as big of an aftermarket performance company as say, Hennessey and Roush. However, the company is famous for working on GM builds, like the Camaro and the Corvette. They have even laid their hands on the Sierra and the Silverado, but this time around, Callaway has chosen one car from the SUV lineup – the Tahoe.
Callaway has taken the 2020 Tahoe under its wings to create a beast. The upgrade package will be offered with two engine options, both delivering different output figures. The company doesn’t do a lot in terms of aesthetics, but they sure as hell make a difference under the hood. With all the steroids infused into the SUV, is the Callaway Tahoe the ultimate full-sized sleeper SUV?
Supernatural: 9 Things You Don’t Know About Dean Winchester’s 1967 Chevy Impala
Supernatural is the longest-running American live-action fantasy TV series. It’s been around since 2005, and this season will be its last. It’s been a hell of a ride — no pun intended — for Sam and Dean Winchester, and the latter’s loyal steed, the “Metallicar.”
That’s the nickname given to the 1967 Chevrolet Impala that has been a part of the show since the beginning. The Impala has become so important to the show’s history that fans even gave it the “Metallicar” nickname. Sure, the show doesn’t revolve around Dean’s ride, but it wouldn’t be the same without it, either. And as most famous Hollywood cars go, there are a few interesting things about the “Metallicar” that you might not know about.
