The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is a Muscle Car Tuned up to 11

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is a Muscle Car Tuned up to 11

Owning the track. What happens when you take a track-spec muscle car and turn the volume knobs up to ‘11’? The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. The already focused and sharp, track-oriented Camaro ZL1 gets even better with the new 1LE package, making it the most track-capable Camaro, ever. “The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “But with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap — this is the ultimate track-day Camaro.” The new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE features advancements in four new areas, starting with the motorsports-derived aerodynamics. The muscle car sports a new …Read entire story

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Is a 650-HP, Aero-Crazy, Track-Shredding Cocktail

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Is a 650-HP, Aero-Crazy, Track-Shredding Cocktail

-To create the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, Chevy took one part Camaro ZL1, another part Camaro 1LE, and stirred. The resulting supercoupe is a delicious combination of high horsepower and raw performance.-The ZL1 1LE plays at the opposite end of the muscle-car spectrum from the forthcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, opting to clip apexes as opposed to ripping off epic quarter-mile runs. Still, the ZL1 1LE won’t be a one-trick pony car. Thanks to the rip-snorting 650-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine it shares with the standard ZL1, we expect the hard-core Camaro to hold its own at the drag strip—although the fact that Chevy plans to offer the model exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission may…Read entire story

Deuces Wild: Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Off-Roader Priced from $40,995

Deuces Wild: Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Off-Roader Priced from $40,995

-The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 may be smaller and less powerful than the half-ton Ford F-150 Raptor, but these facts are unlikely to deter consumers (and automotive publications) from thinking together about the two off-road-oriented pickups. Priced at $40,995, the Colorado ZR2 undercuts the hulking Raptor’s base price by $9160. Those more interested in an apples-to-apples comparison can pit the ZR2 against the $41,930 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro instead.-Like the Tacoma TRD Pro, the ZR2 relies on underhood hardware from lesser lineup mates. A 308-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine is standard fare, while a 186-hp…Read entire story

2017 NAIAS – The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse follows in the footsteps of the GMC Acadia

2017 NAIAS – The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse follows in the footsteps of the GMC Acadia

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show continuing the theme of a value-oriented GMC Acadia. What’s going on? The 2017 North American International Auto Show is in full swing and kicking off the show debuts is the all-new second-generation 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Like the Chevrolet Traverse before it, the new Traverse continues the recipe of being a more value-oriented GMC Acadia. And it even looks like a Chevy version of the Acadia…because that’s what it technically is. So what’s new with the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse? Because the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is based on the latest GMC Acadia, its sheetmetal gets a complete overhaul. As a result, the shapes and profiles of both crossovers are very similar. Gone…Read entire story

GM halts production for cars from heavy crossover SUV demand

GM halts production for cars from heavy crossover SUV demand

Like you’ve never heard us tout how popular crossovers are before… What’s going on? Crossovers! “Oh jeeze…” Yea. I know what you’re thinking. We get it. They’re popular. I get it too. But this is how crazy it can get. Car demand is so slow for General Motors, multiple reports indicate the Big Three’s General had to put a stop on various assembly lines. The reason: the demand for crossovers is just too damn high! According to AutomotiveNews and The Detroit News with info provided by Autodata, GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck, Fairfax, Lansing Grand River, Lordstown, and Bowling Green will all hit the stop…Read entire story

SPYSHOTS: 2016 Chevrolet Colorado facelift in M’sia

Here are pics of the Malaysian-spec 2016 Chevrolet Colorado on the road, courtesy of reader V.Mohan who noticed the two pick-up trucks parked at the Temerloh R&R area along the Lebuhraya Pantai Timur. Very few would have missed the trade plated duo really – there aren’t many trucks clad in Pull Me Over Red. Yes, that’s the colour’s official name. While the second-gen facelifted Colorado has not yet been officially launched here, Naza Quest opened order books for the truck yesterday, after previewing it last month. GM’s rival to the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan NP300 Navara made its ASEAN debut in Thailand in April. With an introductory selling price from RM…Read entire story

Chevrolet SS Could Get a Supercharged New Engine

Chevrolet SS Could Get a Supercharged New Engine

The fact that the Chevrolet SS is still on sale is a small miracle, seeing as how it’s been under-appreciated since day one. As Chevrolet readies the SS for its final year of production (in current form anyway), rumors are swirling that the sleeper sedan could get the super sleeper treatment thanks to a motor beloved by Camaro fans. A post by GM Authority claims that there have been ‘mumblings’ regarding a change in powerplant for the final edition SS and Holden Commodore Series II. These mumblings are definitely to be taken with a a heaping pile of salt, but they are supposedly coming from sources at…Read entire story

The Best Car Show You’ve Never Heard Of

The Best Car Show You’ve Never Heard Of

This is the best car show that you’ve never heard of…well, sorta. The Iola Old Car Show can’t fly under the radar while attracting over 2,000 classic cars and 4,200 swap meet spaces. But in an era where most people can’t buy new tires without tweeting it, the event’s laid-back, low-tech nature makes it feel like a secret hidden away from social media. Now in its 44th year, the tiny village of Iola, Wisconsin, is overrun by enthusiasts and vendors from around the country. While it’s hard to find the town on the map, Iola’s other claim to fame is that it’s home to the publication Old Cars Weekly. The show field surrounds the company’s modest headquarters, so it’s unlikely you’re …Read entire story

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1969 Chevrolet Impala

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1969 Chevrolet Impala

From the seller’s description: 1968 Chevrolet Impala 9 passenger station wagon. Special order-396 engine, turbo hydra-matic transmission; all-original except new 4-barrel carb; 91,368 highway miles; Ziebart undercoat; plus over 50 spare parts valued in excess of $4,000. About 90 percent of the 91,000 odometer (highway) miles were registered before 1985. From 1985 to present-day fewer than 100 miles were added each year. Most oil and filter changes occurred with less than 100 miles of use resulting in an engine that runs like a watch. The interior, except for slight wear on the driver’s seat, looks like it just came from the showroom. This vehicle, with Ziebart undercoat, never experienced winter …Read entire story
