2016 Camaro Convertible revealed with Chevy’s smartest roof

2016 Camaro Convertible revealed with Chevy’s smartest roof

Chevrolet has chopped the roof off its everyman sportscar to create the 2016 Camaro Convertible, though this is no hack-job soft top. While it may not have a folding metal roof, the Camaro Convertible does get what Chevy is calling the most advanced lid of the segment, not only fully-powered in operation but with automatically releasing and securing latches, and a powered hard tonneau cover that makes the whole thing a hands-off experience.

You might have had your fill of Android Auto news last month because of Google I/O 2015, but that is no indication that Apple's CarPlay is going to be left on the sidelines.

Chevrolet's 2016 Corvette Z06 has been shown to be rolling off the production line and will soon be rolling out to dealers and buyers, marking the first widespread availability of Apple's direct presence inside cars.

Chevrolet fits 14 cars with Android Auto and CarPlay

Chevrolet has announced the most ambitious Android Auto and Apple CarPlay roll-out so far, with a full fourteen of the GM brand’s 2016 line-up supporting the infotainment systems. “There are a lot of smartphones out there today,” Dan Kinney, director of user experience at Chevrolet pointed out, “and not all of them are being used responsibly.” Unlike rival manufacturers, Chevy will be making the advanced smartphone connectivity a standard-fit item, not charging more for it.

2016 Camaro first-drive – Look out, Mustang

Don’t underestimate the 2016 Camaro, or indeed how important it is. The chunky Transformers styling may border on the caricature from some angles, but the Camaro is deadly serious when it comes to winning new converts to GM: a full 63-percent of the outgoing model were General Motors virgins. So, when Chevrolet asked if I wanted to take the current engineering prototype out on the track, it seemed rude to say no.

Meanwhile there’s also an engine surprise under the hood.

2016 Chevrolet Volt now has a price tag

It seems that Chevrolet is going full steam ahead with the 2016 model of its hybrid electric vehicle, the Chevy Volt. Now it has a price tag in the US, and an even sweeter deal for those in California. But while it's mentioned to be cheaper than the current Volt model, it is only slightly so. The 2016 Volt carries an MSRP of $33,995. And in $825 for destination fees, which doesn't include tax, title, license and dealer fees, and you're just $1,200 shy of the current Volt titleholder.

Chevrolet FNR rides into Shanghai straight from the future

Chevrolet FNR rides into Shanghai straight from the future

When car makers today talk of and flaunt their concept of the car of the future, they are mostly referring to the technologies found inside the car, some of which can even remove the need for a human driver. Most of the time, however, the body of the car itself remains rooted in the present, or sometimes even in the past. Not so for Chevrolet. At the Shanghai Auto Show, it has unveiled the FNR concept, a car of the future that not only boasts of technology of the future, it actually looks futuristic as well.

Confusion be damned, Chevy sticks with Bolt EV

Confusion be damned, Chevy sticks with Bolt EV

When people remember the name of your product, even if they've only memorized the codename, it makes sense not to change it. That's Chevrolet's strategy with its new electric car for the everyman, opting to stick with Bolt EV despite the potential for confusion. Confirmed for production shortly after it surprised even GM with the warmth of its reception in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the car promises around 200 miles of range. However, naysayers had argued a name change was all but essential given the rest of Chevrolet's range.

GM slashes ELR and Spark EV to regen green auto

GM is slashing EV and hybrid car pricing at both the budget and luxury ends of the spectrum, as it attempts to spur last-gasp sales while new models are readied. At the fancy end of the scale, Cadillac has made further reductions on its distinctive but little-loved ELR hybrid coupe, a car which has struggled to find buyers since its debut two years ago. Meanwhile, down at the compact level, Chevrolet is dropping Spark EV pricing in an attempt to get more drivers into its all-electric city car.
