GM begins expanding its autonomous Chevy Bolt fleet

Back in February it was revealed that General Motors has plans to have thousands of self-driving taxis on the road from 2018, with many serving as vehicles for ride-sharing service Lyft. Now the car manufacture is taking steps to make that happen, as a new report says that GM and Cruise, its autonomous car development arm, are looking to put another 300 self-driving Chevy Bolts on the road in the coming weeks in order to improve data collection.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox First Drive: All turbo, all-new compact SUV improves across the board

2018 Chevrolet Equinox First Drive: All turbo, all-new compact SUV improves across the board

Legacy is a powerful thing, and at times it can threaten to smother the equally mighty maxim that moving ever forward is the only way to stay above water in the ultra-competitive automotive industry. Chevrolet, faced with the need to redesign its strong-selling compact SUV - the Equinox - refused to be dragged down by the temptation to simply keep riding a popular horse until it collapsed, foaming and spent, into its grave. Instead, the company realized that the future favors the bold, and elected to invest heavily in a completely new and dramatically different 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

Chevrolet took the 2017 Camaro ZL1 to the track, and it’s FAST

Chevrolet took the 2017 Camaro ZL1 to the track, and it’s FAST

Chevrolet may have been making plenty of noise about its eco-friendly Bolt EV lately, but the 2017 Camaro ZL1 proves it hasn't forgotten about enthusiasts either. Billed as the "fastest ever Camaro", the ZL1 certainly promised a lot on paper, what with its 650 horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine. What we weren't entirely sure about was just how that would translate to the road.

Chevrolet plans “thousands” of autonomous Bolt EV from 2018 say insiders

Chevrolet is readying a fleet of "thousands" of self-driving cars, the majority of which will be used by Lyft as autonomous taxi alternatives, insiders have claimed. General Motors had previously invested half a billion dollars into the ride-sharing firm, with the intention of co-developing self-driving vehicles that could be added to its fleet. In the meantime, GM also launched its own car-sharing scheme, Maven.

Give your Corvette a wagon look with Callaway’s new AeroWagen mod

Give your Corvette a wagon look with Callaway’s new AeroWagen mod

Corvette enthusiasts may remember back to 2013 when Callaway, the Chevy customization specialist, debuted its concept for what many have referred to as a wagon-style modification for the two-door coupe. Dubbed the AeroWagen package, the add-on technically gives the Corvette a shooting brake look, stretching the car's roof line towards the back. Whatever you may call it, the aftermarket part is finally available for almost all C7 Corvette models, including the Z06 and Grand Sport.

2017 Chevrolet BOLT EV first drive: The first electric car truly for the everyman

2017 Chevrolet BOLT EV first drive: The first electric car truly for the everyman

I’m not convinced with the new BOLT EV’s tail-lights, but in just about every other way this all-electric car is a knock-out. A no compromise, zero-emissions vehicle capable of delivering up to an EPA-rated 238 miles on a full charge, it's fun and dynamic to drive, with plenty of interior space.

Tesla and BMW EVs miss top scores in shock safety tests

Tesla and BMW EVs miss top scores in shock safety tests

Tesla's 2017 Model S has failed to score top marks in auto safety crash testing, with the electric sedan falling short of IIHS' 2017 Top Safety Pick+ rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's trials sit alongside - and in some cases are more stringent than - the US government's own NHTSA crash testing. It's one of the organizations most notorious challenges that the Model S struggled in, though the automaker says a fix is in the works.

Lego Batman Movie’s Batmobile made life-size with help from Chevy

Lego Batman Movie’s Batmobile made life-size with help from Chevy

The Lego Batman Movie will be hitting theaters in less than a month, and to help promote it the Lego company teamed up with Chevrolet to take the film's latest take on the Batmobile and build a life-size version of it out of — wait for it — (almost) nothing but plastic Lego bricks. While it may look like the latest Batman Lego set you can buy in stores in the photos shown here, it's actually a 17-foot long, 1,700-pound replica made from just over 344,000 bricks.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse 3 row crossover gets full redesign, new engines in Detroit

2018 Chevrolet Traverse 3 row crossover gets full redesign, new engines in Detroit

The Chevrolet Traverse has long been a bright spot in GM's crossover line-up. When it first arrived for the 2009 model year, the three-row family hauler's combination of a car-like ride and a voluminous interior was a distinct departure from the brand's existing Tahoe body-on-frame SUV and its poorly-received minivans, marking a new chapter for the automaker. The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse debuting at this year's Detroit auto show represents the first complete redesign of the vehicle in a bid to continue the strong sales success of the original model.

Comparing each 2017 Chevrolet Camaro model with its Chevrolet Performance modified counterpart

In October, I had the chance to put some laps on the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, an amazing track facility located about an hour outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. I flew in a few days before that particular event, however, so that I could also sample the full range of Chevrolet Performance parts now available for the current-generation coupe and convertible.

Chevrolet Bolt EV configurator reveals fast-charge times and more

Chevrolet's configurator for the Bolt EV has gone live, detailing just what buyers of the all-electric Tesla rival can expect from their new car. Set to go on sale by the end of the year, availability of the Bolt EV will be fairly limited initially. If you're not in the handful of west coast locations where Chevy plans to sell the plug-in, though, you can still play with the configurator.
