Lighter Is Better, And The V6 Is A Demon

The Chevy Camaro has a new attitude for 2016 thanks to its lighter physique and more powerful engines. We test a V6 model in Detroit to see if the reborn Camaro can stare down the Ford Mustang.

Medium Truck, Big Torque, Minimal Sound

Chevy adds the long-awaited Duramax diesel engine to the Colorado lineup for 2016. With it comes a most refined (and expensive) midsize truck experience.

Don't You Forget About Me

The Chevy SS is one of the best cars no one's buying. But with the addition of a manual transmission and GM's Magnetic Ride Control suspension for 2015, this under-appreciated sedan is a seriously compelling package. Take notice.

A Spot Of Luxury Camping To Reminds Us How Good Trucks Have Become

The American pickup truck has become one of the great "do-everything" vehicles of all time. We sample a Silverado Custom Sport model to detail what the good life is like.

The Best Corvette Yet, And Chevy's Practically Giving It Away

We spend a week with Chevy's outrageous Corvette Z06, featuring 650 hp, 650 lb-ft of torque, and all the American style you'd ever want.

Leapfrogging The Competition In One Big Jump

Be it in the category of luggage, pocket knives, personal computers or cars, the concept of an all-in-one, do-everything product is attractive to a lot of consumers. Why fuss around with stocking your pockets with toothpicks and tiny saws, asks Victorinox, when one well-packaged device can offer up all the functionality that a Swiss Army regular might ever need?

We Test The Advanced New 8-Speed Automatic To See How The Majority Live

UPDATE: Our sources at Chevy have updated their estimate of the cost of the eight-speed automatic from $1,800 to $1,725. We've changed the text to reflect the new number. Per the same source, we have also included an estimated as-tested price, though we'd like to reiterate that pricing is not final.

Exceptional, Yet Missing One Important Piece Of The Puzzle

It may be impossible to spend a day in Chevrolet's new C7 Corvette without someone asking what you think about the iconic sports car – magnetism is an understatement. I was approached by strangers in a grocery store parking lot, parents waiting for their children after school and enthusiasts on a canyon road after I had pulled to the side to take in the view.

You Better Run, You Better Take Cover

Not everyone is an automobile enthusiast, but for the most part, those who possess valid driver's licenses are usually able to differentiate between a performance car and a luxury car. Furthermore, they are usually capable of telling approximately how old a car is based on its styling.

Making The Top Of The Racing Podium Its Primary Objective

In the chart of automotive performance, a thick horizontal line separates track-capable sports cars from genuine racecars. Nearly every major automaker offers a sports car talented enough to circle a racing circuit with some level of competence. These gussied-up machines with their oversized wheels and flashy spoilers blast down the straights, brake hard into the corners and hold lines with tenacity – at least for a time. In practice, nearly all of them are eventually sidelined for cooked

Reports Of This Dino's Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Remember the SUV-asaurus? As a character in an ad campaign, it made us chuckle, the general gist being that the huge sport-utility vehicles of years past were hopelessly out of date, falling prey to higher gas prices and a shifting consumer attitude toward more efficient transportation, namely the car-based crossover. While no specific manufacturer was targeted (besides Suzuki, of course, as it was the brand that paid for the ad campaign), there were a few fullsize SUVs clearly wearing crosshair

The Workhorse Shows Its New Polish

In excess of 475,000 heavy duty pickups were sold in the United States last year – the capable workhorses represented more than 25 percent of the year's full-size pickup volume. But unlike the passenger-car segment, where dozens of makes and models are constantly competing for supremacy, the heavy-duty segment consistently boils down to a four-way battle between the Ford F-250 Super Duty, Ram 2500 and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/GMC Sierra 2500HD twins. And, while today's automobile sho

20 Seconds More Fun Than Before

About 20 seconds, and 30 miles per hour. These are, if not the most heart-thumping statistics you need to know before continuing to read the rest of this review, the most pertinent to get out of the way. What are they? The amount of time it takes, according to our stopwatches, for the power-operated fabric roof to hide itself entirely inside the bodywork of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, and the maximum speed at which that action can be performed.

Australian For Bowtie

As the year of 1972 was drawing to a close, my father had finally saved up enough money to buy himself his first new car, and his heart was set on a Chevrolet Chevelle SS. And no wonder – the midsize Chevy Super Sport had earned a reputation for performance with rugged good looks to match. Its twin stripes and domed hood hid a 402-cubic-inch V8 engine (though Chevy still called it a 396, owing to that mill's muscle car heritage), and, though down on power from the horsepower heyday of 1970

Make Your Fast Car Faster

The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is almost universally more show than go. The monster performance cars and unholy super-modified rides that line the show halls are undoubtedly impressive, but we journalists rarely have the chance to do much more than look at them while we're in town. So, it was a real breath of fresh air to hang out with Chevy at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and drive a set of Camaros that had been freshly shod with go-fast bits from the company's newly refreshed performance parts catalo

Due to the nature of mass production, a faulty part on a car can cause a recall numbering in the tens to hundreds of thousands of vehicles, even if not all of the cars in the recall are defective and need a fix. "Better safe than sorry" is the mantra. But over the past few years, automakers have learned how to perform recalls much more efficiently by employing technology that allows them to trace parts back to their sources, Automotive News reports. An extreme result of this is when General Moto

Open Up And Say 'Aahhh!'

The last time your humble narrator found himself driving a Corvette, someone saluted. It happened last fall in a 2013 427 Collector Edition Convertible, white with silver stripes, and the unexpected gesture of respect came courtesy of one of America's finest servicemen in khaki fatigues: a UPS driver. He stood up in the open doorway of his step van while opposing the sixth-generation Corvette at a stoplight, spontaneously presenting the stern-faced, clipped salutation of a veteran. Icons demand
