Chevrolet News, Pricing and Reviews

With a lineup that includes some of the bestselling cars, trucks and SUVs sold in America, Chevrolet is routinely one of the bestselling brands in the US market. A refresh to the Camaro and Malibu along with new versions of the Corvette, Silverado and Impala join forces with the likes of the Volt and the Spark EV to offer an incredible range of performance cars and super efficient models in the same showroom.

HOV stickers - the key driver in resale values of used Chevy Volts?

I noticed that the new Gen 1 cars are now selling with huge incentives and attractive leases nationwide. Various promos are allowing for cars to be sold at even below invoice (excluding the $7500 Federal credit and state rebates). The Gen 1 has had a good track record for reliability, and has had only a few known issues (fractured bearing cages, failed charging cables (since recalled), cracked charging ports, and a few electrical glitches).

2016 Camaro Turbo Not Likely to Challenge Mustang EcoBoost in the US

When the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was introduced last month in Detroit, we learned that the new generation GM muscle car would come with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine similar to that offered in the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, but based on the specifications of the Camaro turbo 4, it seems very unlikely that GM will see the same success from their fuel-sipping model as Ford does – at least not in the United States.
Car Fire

EVs are Smoking Hot, They Don't Normally Catch Fire

A Car was on Fire on Saturday in Kaufman County Texas over the weekend and a strong smell of fuel was reported. To our surprise it wasn’t a Chevy Volt, or Tesla or Nissan Leaf according to reports. It was a gas car fire. The Story didn’t even state what type of car it was; however, from the video you can tell it wasn’t one of the three vehicles I referenced above.

Ford Mustang Outsold Camaro 42 Times in 51 Years

General Motors brags about the Chevrolet Camaro outselling the Ford Mustang each of the past five years, but when you look at historic sales based on model year rather than calendar year, the Mustang has outsold the Camaro a whopping 42 times in the past 51 years – with Ford selling over 4.2 million more Mustangs than Chevy has sold Camaros.

Final 5th Gen Camaro to Be Built on November 20th

The automotive world is still abuzz from the debut of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro this past weekend in Detroit, but the news has surfaced that production of the 5th generation Camaro in Canada will come to an end on November 20th, 2015 – marking the end of an era that has spanned the last two generations of the GM muscle car.

Two Reasons It's a Bad Idea for GM to use Tesla Superchargers

The Chevy Bolt is a smaller car with presumably a smaller battery. Pumping that current is not a good idea; Tesla gets away with because of battery size. Sure the Bolt could be designed to throttle back the charge, but then you lose some advantage to the quick charge.

Second issue is battery chemistry. Not all lithium batteries are created equal and they. Tesla uses NCA. The Bolt, if the whispers are to be believed, is supposed to use NCM.
From what I've read NCM degrades faster than NCA.

Why GM Should be Applauded for The Chevrolet Bolt and What Should It Do for Success

No other automaker besides Tesla has jumped in to announce a 200 mile BEV. Ford and Chrysler had been non-committal, Toyota and Honda are going hydrogen, and the Europeans believe more on PHEVs, though BMW and Audi may have "concepts" for the future. Even the current BEV market leader, Nissan, hasn't announced anything about its next-generation LEAF or if it will incorporate a 200 mile battery.

On ordering a 2016 Chevrolet Volt

The new body design of the 2016 Chevy Volt has had mixed reviews with some people claiming on social media that they’ll get a 2015 before they’re gone because they don’t like the new body style. Others, especially those that have seen the new Volt in person seem to like the design very much. And so the debate begins.

Here’s what’s known about configuring the new Volt:

There are two trim levels, the LT and the higher-end “LTZ” (also known as “Premier”). There is a definite demarcation between trim levels, with the entry-level LT missing out on some very nice features.

Neither Chevy Volt Is a Modified Cruze, nor LEAF a Modified Versa

Earlier today we published one EV owner's opinion refuting this line of thought, saying comparing the LEAF to a battery-powered Versa is not giving the LEAF designers much credit. In this opinion piece, an EV owner and enthusiast Ivan Jue makes a brief comparison between Nissan LEAF and Versa as well as Chevy Volt and Cruze, writing one cannot judge the book by its cover. Here is what Jue says.

Chevy Volt Owner Only Gets Minor Bruises After Being Hit By a Truck

Two days ago, on May 10, I saw this picture of a crashed Chevy Volt on Chevrolet Volt's official Facbook public page, shared by Karl Blinkinsop.

He shared his picture and wrote this comment. "The Chevy Volt is no match for the Mack truck that rear ended me Wednesday during standstill traffic on the interstate but I do think its cleaver designed saved my life. RIP my 2012 Chevy Volt, can't wait to get a new one."

Then Karl wrote that he is "OK, just bruised ribs, no one else was in the Volt."
