Back to Chevrolet

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.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV

The 2022 Bolt EV is smarter, comes with refreshed interior, and receives a price cut of over $5,000!

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.

This Split-Window Chevy C8 Corvette Rendering Proves Chevy Can Do Better

Chevy can do better but it most likely won’t

It was just a couple of weeks ago when Chip Foose took to YouTube in an attempt - successful, if you want our two cents - to restyle the new mid-engine Corvette in a way that pays tribute to its predecessor and now we see another pixel manipulator trying to improve the C8’s design. And we really like what we’re seeing.

Chevy Might Fix That Annoying Array Of Buttons In The C8 Corvette After All

That can only mean happier future customers

After it debuted with much fanfare in 2019 for the 2020 model year, the mid-engine Chevy C8 Corvette started to reach customers and while post-sales reviews were pretty much stellar, the sports car quickly started to attract criticism as far as its interior goes.

We bring good news, though. If a recent report is true, then Chevrolet is brewing an interior revamp for the C8 Vette and it is slated to arrive in 2022 for the 2023 model year.

Quick Facts About the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV

Quick Facts About the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and EUV

Nothing has really changed powertrain-wise, but the new Bolt EV and EUV certainly look serious

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.

Chip Foose Shows Us What the C8 Corvette Should Have Looked Like

Chip Foose Shows Us What the C8 Corvette Should Have Looked Like

We just like his version better for some reason

2019 was the year that marked a big breakthrough for Chevy and the Corvette. The sports car’s engine finally transitioned to the middle, after long decades of experiments but not fruition.

The C8 looks more like a supercar than ever – mind, you though, it is no Ferrari. In our book, the mid-engined Corvette is just not quite up to the sexiness of the C7. Sure, it’s all down to subjectiveness and the fact that it’s somewhat easier to get the proportions right in a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration. Of course, we’re not saying that the new C8 looks bad or anything: it’s just that we like Chip Foose’s take better.

New versions of the Chevrolet C8 Corvette will arrive as soon as 2022

Rumors about new and upcoming versions of the C8-generation Corvette have been flying around for quite some time. But Chevy struggled with Corvette production and development during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 and things have slowed down. Things are still a bit uncertain right now, but it seems that Corvette Z06 is still on track for the 2022 model year, while the ZR1 could arrive for 2023. There’s also unofficial confirmation that Chevy plans to introduce two electrified Vettes for 2023 and 2024.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse High Country - Driven

2021 Chevrolet Traverse High Country - Driven

The Traverse is a perfect alternative to a minivan that comes with handsome looks, spacious cabin, and a brilliant engine+transmission combo

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.

10 Chevy Cars You Probably Forgot Existed

From the unicorns to the donkeys, Chevy has had them all

In the 100-plus years that it’s been around, Chevy has developed a lot of popular models, including the Camaro and Corvette nameplates. But look back on the Bow Tie’s history and you’ll see that it’s also filled with forgotten models and rare exclusives that not a lot of people today know existed. Some of these models were one-off creations that have become holy grails while others were short-lived flops that Chevy probably prefers to be kept under the rug. Either way, all these models have interesting stories to tell.

2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 - Driven

2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 - Driven

Chevy’s resident supercar squares off with more expensive models - does it stand a chance?

Chevy quite literally redefined what the Corvette name means when it unveiled the all-new, mid-engined C8 Corvette – a model that was decades in the making. Finally bringing the mid-engine configuration to the Corvette was no easy undertaking, but in the end, the new Corvette looked like a supercar, performed like a high-end sportscar, and created quite a stir in the automotive community thanks to its attractive low price. It seems impossible that a car like the C8 Corvette could retail for less than $60,000, but as promised it does ($59,995 as of the time of this writing). This makes the C8 Corvette come off as a much-cheaper alternative to many exotic cars, so how does it hold up? We spent a week with the 2021 C8 Corvette 3LT with the Z51 performance package to find out.

Lottery Winner Scores a Chevrolet Corvette C8, But It’s Never Than Simple

It’s going to be a long wait for this otherwise lucky individual

A lucky individual from Georgia named Dennis Kahler scored a huge win when he won a brand-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 from a scratch-off Georgia Lottery ticket. He also pocketed a cool $250,000, which would’ve made anyone’s day.

Turns out, some jackpot prizes take time to bear fruit, especially if there’s no plan in place to actually award Kahler with a Corvette C8 the moment he won it. What was supposed to be a joyous moment for the lucky fella has turned into bouts of frustration after Kahler discovered that the Georgia Lottery didn’t set up a designated winner’s car or even acquire a Corvette C8 order slot.

You Can Now Gain 200 Horsepower In Your Chevy C8 Corvette With a Bolt-On Supercharger

All that added power is most welcome in the Corvette C8

If there’s one thing we know about Chevrolet Corvette enthusiasts, it’s that this crowd isn’t a patient lot. That’s important to know because the more powerful Corvette C8 Z06 hasn’t been revealed yet, and instead of patiently waiting for the model to drop, owners have turned to the aftermarket world to get their fix of extra power.

A sea of turbocharged setups has already hit the market, but supercharged options have been dry, at least until now. Kansas-based supercharger company ProCharger has just revealed the first supercharger option for the new Corvette C8, and it is a doozy. The full specs are yet to be announced, but the tuner has provided Corvette C8 owners something to look forward to: an extra 200 horsepower. That’s a promising start, at the very least.

In terms of family cars, you’ll find the Chevy Impala is the most expensive with a starting price of $28,020, which can increase into $40,000 territory if you go crazy with option boxes.
