The Chevy Bolt EUV Is Starting to Look Attractive With All This Fresh Technology
Launched in 2016, the Chevrolet Bolt has led GM’s assault on the electric car market in recent years. The subcompact hatchback is about to be joined by a second Bolt model, called the EUV. That’s short of Electric Utility Vehicle, because the Bolt EUV will be a crossover version of the Bolt EV.
In development since 2019, the Bolt EUV will go into production in 2021 and Chevrolet is already teasing the EV. Chevy’s latest video gives us our first glimpse at the interior.
The C8 Corvette Grand Sport Won’t Exist Because We’re Getting Something Better
Back in April 2020, a leaked timeline revealed what new versions of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 we should expect in the coming years. Chevy was reportedly planning to to unveil a brand-new Z06 for the 2022 model year and a Grand Sport version for the 2023 model year. But a new report claims that Chevrolet decided to axe the Grand Sport nameplate. Instead, it will roll out a new model called E-Ray. Just like the cancelled next-gen Grand Sport, it will be a hybrid.
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.
The 2022 Chevy Corvette Z06 Will Have an Engine on Par With That of the Porsche 911 GT3
What if I told you that the 2022 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 wasn’t going to feature a turbocharged engine? Would you be sad, depressed, or upset? Well, you shouldn’t be, because a new report claims exactly that and it’s very good news. A more potent turbocharged engine will be found in a model that sits above the Z06, but the Z06 will feature a free-breathing, 5.5-liter, flat-plane V-8. Why is this good news? Well, grab a coffee and let me explain.
(Almost) Official: The Chevy Camaro Is Living On Borrowed Time
At this point, you’ve probably heard the rumors that – despite the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger’s success – the Chevy Camaro is on the verge of being discontinued. We reported on this as early back as June 2019 when it was said that Chevy just couldn’t justify the Camaro’s existence. If anything we assumed that the name would live on, especially have GM broke the internet (in a bad way) by teasing a jacked-up electric car that looked painfully like the current-gen Camaro. Now a new report, one that quotes “multiple sources within GM,” says that the Camaro is on the verge of death, so what now?
New Details of the 2022 Chevy C8 Corvette Z06 Paint An Interesting Picture
Although production of the mid-engined Corvette C8 was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, we learned that Chevrolet has big plans for the sports car, with Z06, ZR1, and Zora models underway. The Z06 is officially scheduled for 2022, and even though we don’t know if it will arrive on time, we just learned a few juicy details about it from our friends over at Muscle Cars and Trucks.
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.
You Should Probably Skip Buying a 2021 Chevy C8 Corvette Too
Back in April, we learned that the convertible version of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 won’t see the light of day in 2020. With the plant at Bowling Green closed off due to the coronavirus pandemic, Chevrolet decided to skip the drop-top for the 2020 model year, delaying it for 2021. But now it seems that the Convertible might see an even longer delay, as the coupe model itself is also missing out on a big part of the 2021 model year. Chevy says that it will begin taking orders for the 2021 Corvette in late May, but we still don’t know when production will restart. May 18 is the latest target for that, but it could change depending on how the pandemic evolves.
The Chevy C8 Zora Corvette Due in 2025 With 1,000 Horsepower and an Attitude
Initially rumored to arrive a couple of years after the base C8 Corvette, the Zora is reportedly due to break cover in 2025. The range-topping Zora will follow new-generation models of the Z06, Grand Sport, and ZR1. The original plan was to introduce them starting with the 2022 model year, but the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted GM to shut down its factories, will probably cause one-year delays for every model.
The Chevrolet C8 Corvette Convertible Has Been Delayed Until 2021
Chevrolet has already confirmed that the C8 Corvette will spawn a drop-top version, but it might not be available before the 2021 model year. Yes, you guessed it, it has to do with the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that it forced GM to shut down production at its Bowling Green plant.
We Need This Chevrolet C8 Corvette Livery To Become Reality
Remember the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R? Silly question, of course you do. The race car was active on tracks around the world between 2014 and 2019 and it even managed to snatch a victory in the GTE Pro class at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In all fairness, what brought us here today is Abimelec Design’s recent rendering of a widebody C8 Corvette that looks ready to pick up where the C7.R left off.
With Production on Hold, New Details for the 2021 Chevy C8 Corvette Have Surfaced
Back in January, we explained that you need to have patience and understanding in regard to C8 Corvette production and deliveries. Not long after that, a GM-UAW strike led to a delay in the start of production. Months later, the COVID-19 pandemic grabbed the world by the short and curlies, and now GM has been forced to shut down the Bowling Green factory and put production of the C8 Corvette on hold. All this, despite the heavy demand for the C8 Corvette (part of which is derived from rumors that the 20021 model year would be more expensive). In late January, we also learned that Chevy was canceling some dealer allocations,, and now order books for the 2020 Corvette are completely closed. There could be a silver lining to all of this, though, as you can now order the 2021 model year C8 Corvette and, with it, comes some fresh standard equipment.
GM Just Teased an Electric Camaro And I Just Threw Up
In my book, GM is screwing up a lot of things, and this is coming from a guy that has been pretty loyal to the company’s various brands over the years. Now, it looks like GM is going to ruin the Camaro if what we’re seeing in this latest image turns out to be legitimate. With the Camaro set to be discontinued by 2023, it looks like GM might use the same body style, albeit on a raised, electric platform to combat the Ford Mach-E. Please, say it isn’t so.
