2016 Chevrolet Volt first drive

2016 Chevrolet Volt first drive

Not all electric cars are created equal and, as Chevrolet proved with the first-generation Volt, there's more than one way to wean drivers off gasoline. Fans of electric vehicles can debate pure-EV, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and any other combination all they like; at the end of the day I'm a pragmatist, and so for me it's the Volt's ability to boost fuel-efficiency without introducing range anxiety - and without being too pious in the process - that makes the second-gen 2016 car so appealing.

If you are the sort of car person who needs a car that is big and comfortable with four doors, but still wants that fun to drive and powerful nature of a muscle car, the Chevy SS might be just what you need. The big sedan gets a 6.2L V8 engine making a decent 415hp and the same amount of torque.

2016 Camaro SS hits 60 mph in 4.0 seconds

We already know pretty much everything there is to know about the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. We've already climbed behind the wheel of the car for a little hands-on time at the track. One thing that Chevy was keeping mum on was the official performance numbers for the car. We were expecting impressive numbers from the car considering its lighter weight and powerful V8 engine.

Holden’s final Commodore could be a ZR1-powered beast

Holden’s final Commodore could be a ZR1-powered beast

I have long been rather jealous that Aussies can get their hands on some very sweet muscle cars from Holden. We occasionally get watered down versions of those cars here in the US, but I want the real deal from Australia. Word is that with Holden ending production in Australia at the end of 2017, GM is looking to end things on a very high note.

It’s the Chevy Corvette’s turn to get hacked

It’s the Chevy Corvette’s turn to get hacked

Car hacking seems to be the new black recently. As cars get smarter, they also become more enticing targets to hackers for both fun and profit. From wireless key fobs to Chrysler's Jeeps to GM's OnStar, it seems no car is safe. Not even Chevrolet's Corvette, apparently. Researchers from the University of California San Diego proved that this particular car, and probably others like it, are also susceptible to attacks, giving hackers unmitigated control over certain functions of the car, with some particularly dangerous consequences.

2016 Chevy Volt gets 106 MPGe fuel economy rating

Chevrolet struggled this year with sales of the plug is hybrid Volt. In April, sales were so slow for the vehicle that Chevy halted production of the car for four weeks to allow unsold stock to move on dealerships around the country.

GM pins diesel redemption on meaty 2016 Chevrolet Colorado

GM arguably stuck a knife in diesel's chances in the US back in the 70s, and now the company is hoping to make amends with its latest Colorado truck. The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Duramax diesel packs a 2.8-liter turbocharged engine and the promise of better economy than its gas-powered brethren. However, it's likely to be the lashings of torque that Chevy convinces American truck drivers with.

Chevrolet is giving its Silverado truck a glitzy revamp for the 2016 model year, throwing eye-catching LEDs on the front and packing Android Auto and CarPlay inside.
