We recently headed to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Chevrolet for a day at their Find New Roads Experience. Along the way, we hit the agility course in the new Colorado ZR2, launched a Camaro ZL1, and did a bucket-list lap of the speedway in a Corvette Grand Sport.
Chevy will launch this sexy trim series across nearly its entire product line. Silverado 1500, Colorado, Camaro, Cruze Sedan and Hatch, Traverse, Equinox, Trax, and Malibu will all offer the black and red hashed wheels, black grilles, and red accented logos, among other things.
The new performance variant of Chevy’s mid-size pickup gains 2″ of suspension lift, steel rocker protectors, Multimatic shocks, 17×8 wheels with 31-inch off-road tires, and front and rear locking diffs. Comes with either a 308 hp V6, or a 181 hp diesel with 369 lb-ft. of torque.
GM and the US Army created this badass concept truck for military operations. The 6.5 ft. tall truck runs quietly thanks to a hydrogen-electric 4WD drivetrain, its power pack can be removed to power field operations, and can produce clean drinking water as a by-product.
Chevy’s compact EV offers an impressive range of 238 miles, a 0-to-60 time under 7 seconds, and sporty, modern looks. It’s packed with tech like a 10.2″ touchscreen, an electronic rear-view mirror, surround-view cameras, and quick charge ability to get you 90 miles in 30 minutes.
Simply the best Corvette yet. It’s got a 460hp 6.2L V8 with a dry-sump oil system, bigger aero, and grippier tires for amazing cornering. With the Z07 package, it does 0-60 in 3.6s, brakes 60-0 in <100ft, and 1.2g lateral acceleration. Check out our first drive review on 95octane.
The all new drop-top Camaro drives better than ever, with coupe-like handling thanks to its stiff chassis, reduced weight, and sporty steering. Optional Magnetic Ride Control dynamically adjusts the suspension to every driving condition. Read our review on 95octane.
Chevrolet put us behind the wheel of the awesome 415hp V8 2016 SS sports sedan, for an epic 1300+ mile road trip to see the Daytona 500. We time-lapsed the 19+ hour drive down to 5 minutes. The car was fast and comfy, and its new dual-mode exhaust sounded amazing.
“Are you ready?” “I got some stuff to do.” Jerry Seinfeld had coffee with U.S. President Obama. They talked about Larry David’s sunscreen, crazy world leaders, the value of cursing and more, as they tool around in a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray. Unofficial mirror here.
As part of its 48-state road trip, Chevrolet put us behind the wheel of the new 2016 Camaro SS, packing a 455 hp V8, and a 6-speed manual, and let us loose on Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. The scenery was epic, and the car equally impressive – even in the snow and rain.
The most stealthily powerful Chevy ever gets an updated front end with LED accent lighting, functional hood vents, and dual-mode sports exhaust. The most important bit remains unchanged – a 6.2L LS3 V8 that pushes out 415 hp and 415 lb-ft. of torque to its rear wheels.
