Chevrolet

Chevy traces its roots back to 1911 when it was established as the Chevrolet Motor Car Company. Seven years later it was merged with General Motors and has been under the GM umbrella ever since. Back in 1919, Alfred Sloan – the CEO of General Motors at the time – had a saying: “a car for every purse and every purpose,” and it was his decision to use the Chevy brand as a mainstream volume leader that would compete against Ford. Over the years, Chevy has expanded into a global manufacturer that serves consumers in most markets, save for a few that includes North Korea, Cuba, and Taiwan.

Alfred Sloan’s slogan still lives through the company today, and that’s why you’ll find no shortage of models to choose from in Chevy’s lineup. The company produces more than 20 consumer vehicles here in the U.S., and that doesn’t include commercial offerings like large fans, heavy-duty pickups, or chassis trucks that can be modified for nearly any industrial purpose. Chevy is considered an entry-level automaker with most offerings being short on luxury and high on value. It does have a few performance offerings like the Camaro and Corvette. Most other models, like the Chevy Malibu or Chevy Impala, for example, are considered affordable family cars.

Don’t Stuff Breast Implants Into Your Turbocharger

There’s no reason you should unless you’re trying to get a kick out of it

The holiday season afforded us enough time to go down the YouTube rabbit hole, and we chanced upon this gem of a video from auto enthusiast and all-around nut Cleetus McFarland.

Apparently, McFarland — real name Garrett Mitchell — had enough spare time of his own to find out if a turbocharger is as good at slicing and dicing random objects as it is in increasing an engine’s output. The experiment of sorts is comical but no less entertaining. It features a banana, a twinky, and a pair of breast implants sourced from — where else? — eBay.

Here’s What’s New In the 2021 Chevy C8 Corvette

The 2021 Chevy Corvette looks the same, but it comes with new tech and new paint options

The C8-generation Chevrolet Corvette was off to a rough start due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The production shut down not only delayed deliveries, but also shortened the 2020 model year run and postponed upcoming versions of the sports car. But the factory is now back to full throttle and Chevrolet is rolling out 2021 model year cars. The good news is that they come with a few upgrades.

Slow sales might be the death of the Camaro

Carmakers are nothing else but businesses and when a product isn’t generating the expected sales levels, it’s a likely candidate for axing. SUVs and crossovers have already punched sedans in the gut and it looks like they’re about to claim the Chevrolet Camaro.

Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan Steps Down - Are Big Changes Coming?

Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan Steps Down - Are Big Changes Coming?

Fehan has led Corvette Racing for 25 years achieving huge success

Doug Fehan, the long-standing Program Manager that has masterminded all of Corvette Racing’s successes ever since the factory-backed team made its debut all the way back in 1999, has parted ways with GM fresh off the heels of one of Corvette Racing’s best seasons to date.

The news came shortly after Oshkosh made it official that it had purchased Pratt & Miller, the company responsible for the building of all of Corvette Racing’s cars. Do these developments suggest that the writing is on the wall for the oldest American racing program that’s still active or will we see Corvette Racing change its focus in the not too distant future? Read on to find out more about the latest puzzle that sports car racing has thrown at us in recent days.

Stacking the C7 Corvette Against the C8 - It's Not What You Think

Stacking the C7 Corvette Against the C8 - It’s Not What You Think

It’s more than just a Corvette evolution

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 doesn’t just represent a big leap in the way the sports car is presented. It also represents a change in a philosophy that has remained in place for almost 70 years and across seven generations worth of Corvette models. The C8 isn’t just a successor to the C7, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s a different model altogether. There are shared roots, sure, but the Corvette that we knew before was wiped clean when Chevrolet introduced the first-ever mid-engine Corvette last year. The jury is still out on whether that’s a good or bad thing, but the folks over at Everyday Driver laid everything out neatly, comparing the Corvette C7 with its successor in several different ways and measurements. The episode lasts 20 minutes long, but it is 20 minutes spent wisely. Find time to watch it, and perhaps you might find a greater appreciation for how the Corvette has evolved to become what it is today.

This Company Will Turn Your Chevrolet Corvette C8 Into A Hot Supercar (Or Speedster)

Is the Corvette C8 too dull for you? Dany Bahar will fix it and throw in a more powerful V-8

Chevrolet finally took the mid-engined road with the Corvette for the eighth-generation, but the American two-door is not exactly a supercar. Upcoming versions might take the nameplate there in terms of performance, but the Corvette C8 looks a bit dull in the current configuration. If you’re happy with the platform and the naturally aspirated V-8, but you want a more exotic design, the folks over at ARES Design, a company founded by Dany Bahar, are here to help.

2020 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Electric Connect And Cruise

The K5 Blazer-E showcases how Chevy plans to revolutionize and electrify its Crate engine system

After unveiling the E-10 electric concept last year, Chevy has now unveiled a 1977 Blazer K5 electric concept for the SEMA show that previews the company’s crate powertrain future. For a company that didn’t seem to be as vested in electrification as other automakers until recently, this is a very big step. This concept also gives us a peek at the upcoming Electric Connect and Cruise package that’s expected to come sometime next year.

Cool Car For Sale: LS3-Powered 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer

Cool Car For Sale: LS3-Powered 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer

This K5 Blazer comes with a 6.2-liter, V-8 engine and a new body paint among other refurbishments

The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was introduced in 1969 as a full-size SUV. The K5 was originally a short wheelbase truck, and the Blazer was based on it to take on the Ford Bronco and the Jeep CJ Series, in extension. The K5 Blazer was on the market for over 25 years before it was replaced by the Chevy Tahoe in 1995. But, the SUV still looks as timeless and handsome as it did back then.

Recently, a first-gen 1970 K5 Blazer arrived at Bring-a-Trailer. This particular example comes with a whole lot of changes, including plastic surgery and a heart transplant as part of a major refurbishment that took place four years ago. So, would it be fair to call it a modern-day K5 Blazer?

2021 Chevrolet Corvette - How We’d Spec It

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette looks really cool in bright orange

2019 was a big year for the Chevrolet Corvette.

The C8-gen Corvette went into production for the 2020 model year, but the coronavirus pandemic forced Chevy to reduce factory output for a few months. Now, the Corvette C8 is available in the 2021 model year with small visual updates. You can now configure the 2021 Corvette Stingray online, and here’s how our ideal C8 would look like.

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 Champion by Callaway - The Ultimate Track-Focused C7

The Corvette C7 may be discontinued, but Callaway still makes it in various forms

Callaway Cars has been modifying Chevrolet Corvettes for more than 30 years now. But what you might not know is that Callaway has also been building and racing Corvettes for 25 years, as well as importing them to European countries like Germany.

To celebrate a quarter century of doing that, Callaway Competition created the Champion Edition, a beefed-up Corvette that features many race-bred parts. But it’s not based on the current C8. If you’re a fan of the previous, front-engined C7, you’re in luck because the Champion Edition is an upgraded Corvette C7 Z06.
