Tomorrow’s Chevy Silverados and GMC Sierra 2500, today

December 17, 2018 David Zatz 1

Real Fast Fotography caught two Chevy 2020 Silverado 2500s and one GMC Sierra 2500 running around the Detroit area. The entry-level LT shows the basic pickup, while the High Country it a bit higher up; and the Sierra Denali is essentially the Cadillac of pickups (in that it shares a […]

GM’s four-cylinder truck gives a bit more power, less economy

October 10, 2018 David Zatz 1

There’s no mistake in the headline; the 2019 Chevy Silverado four-cylinder engine actually gets lower fuel economy than Ford and Ram V6 engines. Where it shines, oddly enough, is in power, where it beats entry-level V6 engines from any American automaker. The EPA estimates for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado four-cylinder […]

Two hours with a Chevy Express U-Haul

I don’t think I’m unique in moving from place to place when I was a student, taking all my gear with me first in the trunk of a car, and then in a rented van. At the time, it was simple enough to go out with a friend or two, […]

Woodward’s walk through GM history

August 23, 2018 David Zatz 0

General Motors cars and trucks were everywhere at this year’s Woodward Cruise; here are a few fine (and other) examples, pulled at semi-random from photos by Real Fast Fotography. We’re taking responsibility for the captions. Let’s start with the Chevrolet Bel Air; the name was used from 1950 to (in […]

Chevy’s diesel being tested; 2019 Ram’s still MIA

August 17, 2018 David Zatz 0

Ram had the first modern Class 1 pickup with a diesel — a VM engine originally created partly for General Motors. Ford and Chevy were caught flat-footed. Then came an emissions scandal, thanks, it seems, to placing too much trust in suppliers. Eventually, Ram got their engine certified for 2018 trucks, […]

Chevy keeps putting two fading designs together

July 23, 2018 David Zatz 0

Compact and midsize sedans sales are falling fast. So are diesel sedan sales. Why not combine the two and do a compact diesel sedan? Chevrolet must have a good market for the diesel Cruze, since it’s been making them for quite some time. The 2019s get a 1.6 liter version, […]

2019 Malibu freshened for abandoned sedan buyers

July 17, 2018 Robert S. Miller 1

Midsize sedan sales are down — but there are still buyers out there, and not all Ford, Chrysler, and Dodge owners are willing to move to crossovers. Chevy is taking advantage of that by updating the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, which will have restyled fronts and rears along with three good […]

The 2019 Camaro for the rest of us

July 10, 2018 David Zatz 0

What’s that you say? You want a sports car, but you don’t want to pay crazy-high insurance or fill the tank with high-octane every day or two? Chevy heard you (okay, so did Dodge, Mazda, Ford, Fiat, and almost everyone else) and, as always, there’s a Camaro that handles well, […]
