Chevy’s new 2018 7-passenger SUV gets the Johnny Cash treatment

Built on the Tahoe Custom priced at US$44,995 released last year, the new 2018 Tahoe Custom Midnight at US$45,995 gives Chevy’s best-selling full-sizer a bolder, stealthier look with an all-black treatment including a black grille, off-road assist steps and black bowtie emblems, blacked-out 18-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac rubber.

A Tahoe built for the outdoors

Both SUVs – the Custom and Custom Midnight – cater to outdoor enthusiasts and family campers who need that extra rear cargo and towing capabilities but without the frills of the top-end Tahoe Premier trim level. So all the top features without that upscale feel.

As Chevy puts it, “The Tahoe Custom Midnight takes the capability and value of the Custom trim and adds rugged, all-black features found on our popular Midnight Editions.”

Equipped with with 6,600 pounds of towing capacity, a maximum of 112 cubic feet of cargo space and a 355-hp, 5.3L V8 engine, the special edition Tahoe built on the LS trim comes in 2WD and 4WD configurations and all the cabin tech you’d expect, like 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot capability, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Chevy’s Camaro ZL1 is amongst a limited breed of muscle cars that are making its way to the top of the North American powerhouse food chain. The ZL1 puts down a solid 650 hp, sprints to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds, and covers the quarter mile in a mere 11.4 seconds. This puts the Hellcats right in its targets, and we are awaiting more details on Fords’ GT500 which looks to be in its development and testing phase right now.

The new Camaro ZL1 will be offered with a few optional packages which allows buyers to choose different powertrain, suspension, and driveline packages. The ZL1 will be a potent competitor for other manufacturers with it’s combination of power and track focused design. According to Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, “You’ll be hard-pressed to find more track-capable cars in their respective classes for the money.”


First Look Mid Engine Corvette

Chevrolet’s Corvette has long been an American hot rod icon. The latest iteration of the Corvette saw a major change in its appearance with much more angular and chiseled features very much resembling cars coming out from those Italian automakers. Well, it looks like the Corvette is taking through another major change that puts it more inline with it’s Italian competitors and possible making a mid-engine version. This is a major departure for the corvette as it has always been a front engine rear drive vehicle.

Other than some spy photos, there’s absolutely no details about the next generation Corvette that’s available to the public. The pictures, although blurry, does show a lower front end, a redesigned rear which shows an opening behind the driver’s head, and a much wider waistline. So despite the lack of information, seeing the prototype testing during the day has got the whole industry a buzz on what Chevy is up to.


The Latest Bumblebee

2016-bunblebee

When you show a kid a picture of a Camaro, it’s quite common that their first reaction is yelling out the name “Bumblebee”. Ever since the first installment of Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise hit the big screen back in 2007, the Chevrolet Camaro has since been linked to the image of a robot car.

No official details have yet been released on the new iteration of Bumblebee Camaro except these images. But what we’ve been accustomed to is a widely reimagined version of the factory car when it makes it way to the screen and this iteration is no different. The body work of the Transformers Camaro is aggressive in design with low hanging front splitters and an aggressively shaped front valence. The splitters continue down the side and the rear gets a big wing.

When the movie officially launches we’ll get many more details of the Bumblebee Camaro.


Chevy Fined for Selling Unfixed Recalled Cars

Federal laws prohibit dealerships from selling vehicles that have an open recall without first fixing the vehicles to ensure they conform to all safety regulations. When Sands Chevrolet of Phoenix, Arizona got caught selling unfixed vehicles, they were fined $40,000US and agreed to pay the penalty as part of their settlement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to Jerry Moore, the operator of the dealer, “It was something that happened a few years ago, and we’re moving on from it.” When the news of the dealer’s investigation made headlines back in 2014, it was said that the dealer had sold two Malibu Eco sedans which had not received the proper repairs based on the national recall campaign that was active at the time.
