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.
This Company Will Turn Your Chevrolet Corvette C8 Into A Hot Supercar (Or Speedster)
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
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
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
2019 was a big year for the Chevrolet Corvette. After almost 70 years on the market with a front-engined layout, the iconic nameplate became a mid-engined vehicle, just like Zora-Arkus Duntov wanted back in the 1960s. 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.
Screw The New Batmobile, We’re More Interested in Bruce Wayne’s 1963 Corvette Stingray Daily Driver
Batman may be driving a jet-powered Batmobile while fighting crime in Gotham City, but Bruce Wayne’s daily driver is actually a vintage Chevrolet Corvette. Robert Pattinson, the actor that will play Batman in the next iteration of the movie (The Batman), was spotted driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in Liverpool, England, where filming for the upcoming Batman movie is currently taking place.
Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 Champion by Callaway - The Ultimate Track-Focused C7
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.
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.
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.
The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Comes With a Touching Easter Egg
Chevrolet had several issues with the new, mid-engined, C8-generation Corvette this year, including a factory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and a reduced output for the 2021 model year. But production is now back to speed and it seems Chevy is making small enhancements to the mid-engined coupe.
The folks over at Corvette Blogger got their hands on photos of new Corvettes delivered to a dealership in late September with new graphics on the windshield. They pay tribute to Zora Arkus-Duntov, the "father of the Corvette."
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?
You Should Probably Quit Driving Your 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette
It’s 2020 and vehicle safety is more important than ever. You would think that as advanced as we are as a civilization, we’d be able to nail something as simple – in a generalized way – as vehicle safety. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, and that’s why GM has placed a recall and stop-sale on the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette, 2021 Cadillac CT4, CT5, XT4, the 2021 Buick Encore GX, and the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer. So what’s the deal? Well, if you own any of these models, you just might go to hit your brakes, just to realize that you suddenly can’t stop.
The Best Corvettes Ever Made
Unveiled on January 17th at the Autorama in New York City a whopping 67 years ago, the Corvette grew from an underpowered answer to Europe’s sports car-making powerhouses to become one of the most famous cars ever manufactured in the United States. Often referred to as ’America’s Sports Car’, it now broke into the supercar arena with the release of the eighth generation. It’s, thus, a good moment to take a look back at the finest Corvettes ever made including Callaway’s finest moment.
The Corvette is such a household name in the automotive industry that few people would picture the vessel that lent its name to Chevrolet’s first foray into the world of sports cars when you say the word ’Corvette’. All but a sub-brand, the Corvette built its reputation both on the road, as a friendly grand tourer engineered to cope with the hardships of everyday driving, and on the track where it raced against and beat the Europeans and everyone else in between. Sure, there were some duds along the way including, should we say, the original Corvette C1 with that uninspiring inline-six engine but there were also many brilliant ones and here are our top 10 picks in no particular order.
This is NOT How You Want to Find Your Chevy C8 Corvette
Online trending challenges have become the rage these days. Some challenges like the Ice Bucket Challenge caught one because they were tied to a larger and very important cause. Other challenges like the Tide Pod Challenge were stupid and dangerous and should never have even started. Somewhere between those two challenges lies the “drop your car challenge.” Nothing about this challenge served a higher purpose, but there’s also nothing dangerous about it. The purpose of this challenge is simple: show off your car. That’s it. It’s an ultimately harmless exercise that revolves simply letting everyone see what your car is. Or at least that’s what we thought until we saw this photo of a Chevrolet Corvette C8, or whatever’s left of it. This is a different interpretation of the “drop_your_car_challenge,” and, unfortunately, it’s not a very pleasant one.
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.
This Working, Electric Lego Corvette ZR1 is Downright Awesome
Legos are cool, awesome, and all the superlatives you can throw in between. The things that you can create with these bricks are limited only by your imagination. What makes the toy even better are the things that you can do with it, like, say, add a fully functional electric powertrain on a Lego Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. One guy did exactly that, and he even created a video demonstration of his masterpiece. In the video, we see the Lego Technic Corvette ZR1 strapped on a dyno that’s made from — you guessed it — Lego bricks. What comes next is a four-minute video that’s going to make you want to buy a Technic Corvette ZR1, build your own dyno, and outfit your Lego ‘Vette with its own functional electric powertrain.
2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Pandem
Widebody kits look good on virtually any car. Whether it’s a drift-spec Toyota Supra or a humble Daihatsu Copen, everything can be tricked out to please the eye with a neatly-designed, flared-out body kit. Including the mid-engined Chevy C8 Corvette, as Pandem was kind enough to demonstrate.
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.
What is the Least Expensive Chevy?

Needless to say, the Corvette will continue to be the sportiest Chevy for a long time to come.
What is the Most Popular Chevy?
In the automotive climate we live in today, it should come as no surprise that the Chevy Silverado is the brands best seller. In 2018, sales of the Silverado declined by 1.4-percent, and Chevy still sold 585,581 examples throughout the year. That’s barely more than half of its primary competition, the Ford F-Series, but it’s still Chevy’s bread and butter.

The most expensive Chevy is the Corvette ZR1, and that’s not likely to change as Chevy transitions into selling the mid-engined C8 Corvette. Outside of performance offerings, its most expensive SUV is the Chevy Suburban with a $50,800 starting price and a fully equipped price that can approach the $80,000 mark. 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.

The fastest Chevy is, hands down, the Corvette ZR1 with a 60-mph sprint time of three-seconds flat and a top speed of 212 mph.
Are Chevys Reliable?
For 2019, J.D. Power ranked Chevy No. 4 in reliability out of 32 different automakers. The only brands that are considered more reliable are Lexus, Porsche, and Toyota. Sister brand Buick sits just below Chevy in the No. 5 spot. According to repair pal, Chevy models are rated 4 out of 5 in terms of reliability, which puts the brand above average. According to that outlet, the average cost of repair is $625 per year, $6 less than the average of $631. Frequency of unscheduled repairs is also low, with the average Chevy visiting a repair shop for unscheduled maintenance just 0.4 times per year. As far as severity is concerned, 13 percent of Chevys repaired each year are in for repairs that are considered urgent or serious.
