GM Plans New Overhaul For Chevy Express Van

General Motors (GM) has big plans for the Chevy Express van. The full-size van has been around for some time, replacing the Chevy van in 1996. Since then, GM has made some changes and improvements but never anything significant. Despite this, the Chevy Express has continued to serve as a reliable and capable van. Now the time has come for the Chevy Express to see an all-new makeover. The full-size van will receive a new redesign and changes under the hood. It will still have a combustion engine, however. This may be surprising as Chevy has been leaning into electric vehicles lately with its all-new Chevy Silverado EV and Colorado EV. While the decision to remain with a combustion engine may seem counterintuitive, Chevy ensures that it keeps the qualities that make the Chevy Express a reliable van.

Chevy Express Will See New Changes

General Motors (GM) will make changes to the Chevy Express. The full-size van will receive a new redesign as well as some new changes underneath the hood. Having remained relatively unchanged since 1996, GM feels it is time that its passenger van receives some improvements to help it stay relevant among the competition. For one, the Chevy Express will ride on a revised platform called GMT 620. Details remain under wraps, but with a new platform, it’s expected that the van will see further upgrades to its powertrain. Production of the new Chevy Express is likely to occur at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri. 

Additional changes to the Chevy Express will affect the overall design of the full-size van. Again, details have yet to be released, so we’re stuck with the expectation that we will see a brand-new Express sometime in the future. Currently, the Chevy Express provides seating for up to 15 people and offers plenty of room for equipment. The van features a full-frame design and offers several configuration options. Owners can opt for cargo, passenger, or cutaway styles. Each offers distinctive features that are tailored to the needs of the owner.

For its engine options, the Chevy Express offers either a 4.3L V6 engine or a 6.6L V8 engine. The 4.3L delivers 276 horsepower and 298 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.6L delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. The full-size van also offers up to 4,280 pounds of payload capacity. For safety, the Express features side blind zone alerts, lane departure warnings, forward collision alerts, and a rear vision camera. The 2023 Chevy Express starts at an MSRP of $38,100 (plus destination fee). While we do not know much about the new Express, GM will likely add additional features to assist drivers. For now, we will be staying tuned for more information.

The 2024 E-Ray Makes A Dramatic Entrance On The Corvette’s 70th Birthday

2024 E-Ray Debut

On the 70th anniversary of the Chevy Corvette, first introduced at Motorama in New York City, the automaker returned to show off its metamorphosed fully-electric version. Spinning off the Stingray moniker, the 2024 E-Ray is an all-wheel-drive (AWD) monster with a dynamic 6.2L LT2 Small Block V-8.

“In 1953, the enthusiastic reaction to the Chevrolet Corvette concept kicked off seven decades of passion, performance and American ingenuity,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors president. “E-Ray, as the first electrified, all-wheel-drive Corvette, takes it a step further and expands the promise of what Corvette can deliver.”

This new Vette, which comes in either a removable roof coupe or hardtop convertible, uses its electric power to augment the driving experience with a fierce straight-line performance, all-weather protection, and race-car-like capabilities that succeed thanks to eAWD.

The E-Ray is the only sports vehicle that matches two separate propulsion systems to provide a naturally aspirated V-8 power with swift responsiveness powered by eAWD.

“Corvette has been a halo for Chevrolet since 1953,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “E-Ray’s unprecedented blend of confidence, luxury performance, sophistication, and style provides a new reason for more people to experience the Corvette.”  

The Stingray E-Ray is the fastest production Vette in history, scoring a 2.5-second 0-60 mph time before zooming through the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds.

“Corvettes must provide an exhilarating driving experience on backroads and tracks, and E-Ray nails it,” said Tadge Juechter, chief executive engineer, Corvette. “The electrification technology enhances the feeling of control in all conditions, adding an unexpected degree of composure.”

The 6.2L LT2 Small Block V-8 is responsible for the high-intensity drive, producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. It works with an electric motor that channels an extra 160 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels using a 1.9 kWh battery pack. Ultimately, this amplified Corvette produces a combined 655 horsepower from the electric motor and V-8 engine.

Upscale Design  

The appearance of the E-Ray keeps its sporty and performance-centered style from the previous Corvettes. The car also maintains its wide-body Z06 proportions, with fitting wide wheels that allow for better torque delivery. The alloy wheels even have an excellent twisted five-spoke star design that solely belongs to the E-Ray.

“There’s never been a Corvette like E-Ray, and its sophisticated design reflects that,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Global Chevrolet. “It starts with the body color trim, which draws your full attention to the exotic proportions of the E-Ray. The interiors allow customers to reflect their individual personalities with their choice of color executions that provide a refined or dynamic sport look and feel.” 

Standout design features include:

  • Four aluminum wheel finishes
  • Fourteen exterior color choices, like the new 2024 Riptide Blue, Seawolf Gray, and Cacti
  • A special body-length stripe package in Electric Blue
  • Standard carbon flash badging
  • Optional black exhaust tips and bright badging
  • Optional carbon fiber ground effects
  • Available carbon fiber wheels in carbon flash, visible carbon fiber finish, or visible carbon fiber with a red stripe

The all-electric Vette also brings in a new Artemis Dipped interior, with harmonious deep green tones on almost every surface. This will be the only color available on the new E-Rays. There are several options for shoppers when customizing their new ride, such as two carbon fiber trim packages, three seat choices, seven interior colors, and much more.

On top of this, new Charge+ and Stop/Start buttons are featured on the console, along with advancements to the infotainment system and instrument cluster centered at allowing a more cohesive appearance.

And Later…

The 2024 Corvette E-Ray is set to go on sale this year (2023) with a starting MSRP of $104,2954 (plus destination fee) for the 1LZ coupe and $111,2954 (plus destination fee) for the 1LZ convertible model. Production is ready to go at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly facility in Kentucky from North American and globally sourced parts.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD Will Soon Open For Reservations

The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD will soon become available to order. The heavy-duty pickup truck recently received an all-new refresh that updated its exterior styling. Chevrolet also updated the Silverado HD’s cabin with new technology and powertrain upgrades. As of late, the automaker has been focusing on updating its entire lineup. New EVs, like the Silverado EV and Colorado EV, have also been a focus. While electric pickup trucks have been at the forefront, combustion engine trucks still serve a purpose. We’ll look at the newly refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD and see what consumers can expect.

What To Expect From The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD

The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD will soon become available to the public. Order banks are set to open in the middle of January. General Motors will start accepting reservation orders for the heavy-duty pickup truck on January 19th. The Silverado HD will come with new updates as well as new styling. Chevrolet made sure to give the heavy-duty truck a new facelift that helped it stay relevant among its competition. The truck will see a new grille and new C-shaped LED lighting signatures. It will also see new wheel options. The Silverado HD will see a new dashboard design and more prominent display screens inside the cabin. Technology will also be improved to help drivers when towing or hauling cargo.

As for the powertrain, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD will arrive with its standard 6.6L V8 engine, which delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. This V8 engine will pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission instead of a 6-speed. Additionally, the Silverado HD’s Duramax diesel 6.6L V8 will see a power boost, 470 horsepower compared to 445 and 975 lb-ft of torque compared to 910. The diesel engine will also make use of the new 10-speed automatic transmission. According to Chevrolet, the increase in power is thanks to updates made to the truck’s control architecture and combustion system. These updates provide the Silverado HD with better efficiency. 

One more addition to the 2024 Silverado HD is an all-new ZR2 trim. This will be the first time the Silverado HD receives the off-road trim. It will be released later in the year and equip the heavy-duty pickup truck with revised bumpers, 35-inch tires, and front and rear locking differentials. The ZR2 trim will also feature a host of off-road features that will help drivers tackle challenging terrain. Those interested in the newly refreshed 2024 Silverado HD can start placing their orders now. Those interested in the all-new ZR2 trim will have to wait until the middle of 2023.

The Big Reveal For The 2024 Corvette E-Ray Is Set This Week Tuesday

2024 AWD Corvette E-Ray

Chevrolet recently revealed a teaser for their upcoming electric Corvette E-Ray, featuring revving noises similar to your standard internal combustion engine, only to slyly show the quiet EV driving in the next scene. Though a full reveal of the electric Vette model would have been ideal, we’re still pumped to see all that Chevy offers.

GM president Mark Reuss spilled the beans in April of last year, “We will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future.”

Though word of a fully-electrified Corvette EV has yet to be officially dropped, there has been talk for a few months that the company was going to shake up the Corvette lineup and their EV brand as a whole, involving SUVs and four-door iterations. For those wondering if the Corvette EV was going to shake things up, a four-door SUV Corvette will certainly (for better or for worse) cause a frenzy.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer, as the next piece to this mystery is scheduled to be revealed tomorrow, January 17, in the Big Apple. It also marks the 70th anniversary of the debut of the original Corvette in 1952 at the Waldorf Astoria.

Corvette revealed at GM Motorama

On January 17, 1953, a prototype Chevrolet Corvette sports car debuted at General Motors (GM) Motorama auto show at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The Corvette, named for a fast type of naval warship, would eventually become an iconic American muscle car and remains in production today.

Likely the most intriguing part of all this is the all-wheel-drive (AWD) system if the internal combustion engine and electric motors intertwine. The question remains if that will be the case. Then, if so, how?

For example, a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) combustion engine could add charge to the front-wheel-drive (FWD) EV motor through regen or an alternator power cable. A considerable battery and plug will enable drivers to do simple city driving without engaging the gasoline engine. The famous automaker indicated that an AWD model could be the first electric Corvette that doesn’t spin out of control during snowy seasons.

For years, the parent company, General Motors, has been saying “EVs for everyone”; however, the company (like most other automakers) is still in the initial stages of fulfilling that promise. For the time being, only a few high-end or high-value vehicles of the brand have been pushed, like the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV Electrek Car of the Year 2022 winner), and the Bolt EV.

Although more than an electric Stingray E-Ray will be needed to fill out the middle-man, Chevrolet alone has three big launches scheduled for this year. Namely, the (fleets only) Silverado EV in the spring, the swift Blazer SS EV in the summer, and the value-centered Equinox EV in the fall.

Whether it’s the Corvette E-Ray or any other vehicle from the brand, Miami Lakes Automall has your back with our Chevy-centered selections in our online new car inventory. We sell various vehicles in a myriad of shapes, sizes, and prices.

2024 Chevy Silverado EV Spotted Being Tested

Chevrolet recently posted a video of the all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV performing validation tests. The all-electric pickup truck has already entered production and is set to be available later in 2023. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy updating its combustion engine lineup. The automaker has released new trims and upgraded several vehicles. In addition to its combustion engine lineup, the automaker has been working on new EVs. While the Chevy Silverado EV is one of the few EVs we have information about, supposedly, there is a new electric sports car in the works. For now, we’ll focus on the Silverado EV and see what consumers can expect from the electric pickup truck.

2024 Silverado EV Performs Validation Tests 

Chevrolet recently posted a video of the all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV performing a validation test. The all-electric pickup truck was seen conducting a towing test. In the video, the Work Truck (WT) trim is being used. Initially, this will be one of two trims available for the Silverado EV. The other trim will be the RST First Edition which is set to offer higher performance and capability. The video shows the Silverado EV WT towing a 7,700-pound trailer. According to Chevrolet, the WT trim will have a max towing capacity of 8,000 pounds, while the RST will have a max capacity of 10,000 pounds. About the Silverado EV, Chevrolet’s chief engineer Nichole Kraatz said,

“It’s so important for full-size truck customers to be able to tow, haul, and do everything that they can do in a traditional pickup truck,” said Kraatz. “We’ve set the bar and are validating an incredible product.”

Along with the validation test, Chevrolet also posted several images of the pre-production Silverado EV. The electric truck will be built at General Motors’ Factory Zero plant in Michigan. Although we do not have a complete list of details, it’s expected that the pickup truck will utilize a dual-motor setup. The WT trim is expected to offer 510 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, while the RST First Edition will deliver 664 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. 

As far as range goes, the Silverado EV is expected to have up to 400 miles of battery range. According to Chevrolet, the electric truck will also feature 8.9 inches of ground clearance. Information about the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV continues to flood in. So far, the EV truck will be a fierce competitor to others like the F-150 Lightning and Ram EV. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information.

All The Dirt On The Upcoming 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray

The Chevy Corvette has been an iconic staple in the history of American sports cars. Its first iteration dating back to 1953, this two-door luxury Stingray has captured the hearts of sports enthusiasts and general audiences on a wide scale.

Now, this Vette nameplate is making headlines with its latest iteration for 2024, specifically the electric E-Ray. Here’s the latest!

The 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray

The Stingray has now become the E-Ray. Parent company General Motors already trademarked the name in 2015, then renewed it in August 2020. Though trademarks don’t always transition to the production phase, more than likely, Chevrolet will bring the E-Ray onto the highways and race tracks.

What Do We Know About The Engine?

Regarding the E-Ray’s powertrain, the Chevy company keeps things under wraps. However, there is talk that this electrified Stingray may arrive with the same 6.2-liter V8 engine from the current C8 Corvette but with the addition of either one or two electric motors. The arrangement of these motors could lead to an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. The output will likely be around 650 horsepower.

Due to the electric motors and the possible AWD, the Stingray E-Ray will perform much better than the regular Vette car. Contingent on how powerful the electric motors are, the E-Ray may be even swifter with 60 mph than the Corvette Z06.

What Type Of Electric Vehicle Is The E-Ray?

The all-new Corvette E-Ray will likely be a hybrid of some sort, perhaps even a PHEV (plug-in hybrid) variation. Both have similar components, but PHEVs have larger battery packs that allow them to travel longer distances on fully electrified power. These types of hybrids can also get their juice at a regular charging station, while hybrid vehicles get their source of energy from regenerative braking. Images of the car’s configurator showed a “Regen on Demand” button inside, suggesting that the vehicle will have different levels of regenerative braking.

Indeed, the first iteration of the E-Ray won’t be an all-electric vehicle, as the automaker has already confirmed that a fully-electric version will be coming in the future.

Exterior Changes

As far as the aesthetics are concerned, the leaked images of the 2024 E-Ray revealed that this speedy car bares much resemblance to the regular Stingray car. Although the front fascia has a similar style to the Z06, the leaked images from the company’s configurator showed slightly augmented front fins on the fascia. From the rear end, it’s expected that there will be quad exhaust outlets that retreat from the side of the car, along with the added vents on the rear bumper.

It’s also expected that the E-Ray will be available in unique exterior paint colors encompassing Cacti Green, Sea Wolf gray, and a new variation of blue.

Miami Lakes Chevy

The 2024 Chevrolet E-Ray is scheduled to arrive in the summer of this year, and when the time comes to make a purchase, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand in several different shapes and sizes.

Those who are interested in anything that we have to offer can view our online new car inventory on our website. Once you find something that feeds your interest, chat with one of our representatives for further information and assistance.

Chevrolet-truck-concept-sketch-Ben-Wilkins-GM-Design

Future Chevy Truck Revealed In GM Sketches

General Motors (GM) recently released several concept sketches that may be used for future Chevrolet trucks. The sketches portray possible designs that may be used with pickup trucks like the Silverado 1500 and Colorado. Lately, Chevrolet has been busy updating its lineup with performance upgrades and refreshes. These newly unveiled sketches help consumers get a better idea of what to expect from future refreshes. As for Chevy’s electric trucks, specifically the Chevy Silverado EV and Colorado EV, these EVs will feature a different variation from the portrayed sketches. Still, despite the automaker’s focus on EVs, it’s good to see Chevy giving attention to its combustion engine lineup. For now, we’ll look at the sketches and see what consumers can expect. 

New Sketches Reveal Future Truck Design

General Motors (GM) recently posted several concept sketches to its social media account. Designed by GM creative designer Ben Wilkins, the sketches depict the future design of Chevrolet’s pickup trucks. This includes the Chevy Silverado and Chevy Colorado. Both pickup trucks have received upgrades and refreshes for the 2023 model year. The Silverado received a new turbocharged 3.0L inline-six Duramax diesel engine, while the Colorado received a new exterior refresh. Looking at these new sketches, both pickup trucks could see new refreshes in the near future.

Looking at GM’s social media posts, we can see two images. The first emphasizes the truck’s front fascia, while the other portrays the truck at a front angle. The truck depicted features a large central front air intake with horizontal intake slats. At the center, an illuminated Chevy Bow badge brings everything together. We’re still determining whether Chevy will use these concept designs for its future trucks. However, it does let us know that the automaker is continuously working on ways to update its lineup. 

One other aspect included in the concept sketches was the lighting. A series of thin lighting signatures can be seen running around the outer edges of the concept truck’s front fascia down toward its bumpers. They form an L-shape curve and are accentuated by amber lighting bits in the upper corners of the grille. The truck’s bumper also features vertical lighting fixtures, which appear to be fog lights. The side-view mirrors also share similar lighting characteristics, while the truck’s two-tone paint adds another aesthetic layer. These concept trucks showcase an exciting design and give us an idea of what future Chevy trucks may look like.

The Fate Of The Chevrolet Malibu

Is The Chevy Malibu Here To Stay?

For the past few years, there’s been a significant emphasis on SUVs in North America, leaving some of previous fan-favored sedans or hatchbacks on the backburner…except for the Chevrolet Malibu. Word on the automotive street is that this mid-sizer could be cruising around the American stateside for at least one more generation.

Keep in mind that this rumor follows after previous talk of the Malibu sedan being discontinued in 2024. The car blog site, GM Authority supposedly has an inside source confirming that a new generation is set for 2025 and might journey along a reformed version of its current platform. Another site, Motor1, reached Chevy for possible word on this allegation but for the moment, their questions haven’t been answered.

While the car company hasn’t confirmed…or denied these rumors, there appears to be some persuasive evidence to back the Malibu’s continued lifespan. While we’re still waiting for the automaker’s final sales figures for 2022, through October, the car’s sales were up a jaw-dropping 148 percent compared to 2021. The company reported that 79,799 units were sold through the first three quarters of the year, whilst only 39,376 Malibu sedans were sold for all of 2021.

To compare, the Chevy Malibu has outsold various notable SUVs by the bowtie company, like the Blazer, Traverse, Trailblazer, Suburban, and Tahoe. It’s also outperforming the Chevy Colorado; however, sales for this truck could expand next year owing to the new-generation model that was released last July. Moving out of the confines of its parent company, General Motors (GM), the mid-size Malibu is still far from ranking as the best-selling sedan, as this honor is bestowed upon the Toyota Camry. This car achieved 214,403 sales through October 2022.

If the Malibu continues to show what it’s made of for second-generation using a reformed version of its current platform, that hints that it would offer internal combustion power. Alternatively, as with other car manufacturers, GM isn’t so keen on promoting gasoline-powered vehicles these days, as it’s focusing its efforts on its Ultium-powered electric vehicles. Then, with states such as California and Oregon wanting to ban new internal-combustion car sales by 2035, there may or may not be enough time for one more gasoline-powered generation.

The Chevy Malibu nameplate has a long history in the automotive industry, dating back to 1964. After a bit of a pause for most of the 1980s and 1990s, it made a comeback in 1997 and has been a significant part of the company’s sedan lineup ever since. The current-gen Malibu dates back to 2016, with a mid-cycle refresh hitting in 2019. Some of the best features of the current Malibu include wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Keyless Entry Keypad, Automatic Parking Assist, Wireless charging, Teen Driver, and Buckle to Drive. All of these features can be found in the 2023 model for a starting MSRP of $24,700 (plus destination fee).

What to Expect From the 2024 Chevy Trax

The 2024 Chevy Trax will arrive in the spring of 2023 with a new redesign. Although Chevrolet initially discontinued it, the automaker has decided to bring the compact crossover SUV back to the market. Inspired by the Chevy Blazer, the Chevy Trax will serve as an affordable SUV that is both practical and efficient. It will feature a larger interior cabin and will receive new features. As of late, Chevrolet has been focused on its EV lineup. Despite this, the automaker has continued to expand its combustion engine lineup. Chevrolet will offer the all-new Chevy Trax with several trims so consumers will have a variety of options to choose from. Although not all the details have been released, we’ll take a look at the 2024 Chevy Trax and see what we can expect.

2024 Chevy Trax Will Arrive In The Spring

The all-new Chevy Trax will arrive in the spring of 2023. After initially being discontinued, Chevrolet has decided to bring the compact crossover SUV to markets. As a compact crossover SUV, the 2024 Chevy Trax serves as an affordable and practical vehicle. The Trax features a turbocharged 1.2L three-cylinder engine that delivers 137 horsepower. It pairs with a 6-speed automatic transmission and utilizes front-wheel drive. While fuel economy has not been estimated yet, since the Trax shares a platform with the Chevy Trailblazer, it’s likely the SUV will likely get around 29 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

As for the new changes made to the Chevy Trax, Chevrolet will feature a longer wheelbase and more standard features. Thanks to the longer wheelbase, the interior cabin will have more rear legroom and cargo capacity. The compact SUV also features a redesigned interior with an 11-inch infotainment screen and an 8-inch gauge cluster. Owners can make use of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and there are safety features like automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control. 

The 2024 Trax now features five different trim levels: LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ. Each offers additional features like those mentioned above. With the compact crossover, Chevrolet will be using a port consensus model which means the automaker will build the vehicle based on current constraints. Chevrolet will choose certain trims and configurations before sending them to ports. Dealers will then have the option to choose which available vehicle they’d like to offer. Since this is different from the traditional consensus model, those interested in the 2024 Chevy Trax will have to make sure they notify dealerships about the specific SUV they would like. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information but the compact SUV should arrive in the spring of 2023.

Chevrolet Literally Pays It Forward To 2022 HBCU Marketing And Journalism Interns

This month, Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association completed their sixth year of “Discover the Unexpected.” This is a ten-week internship and scholarship program for 11 HBCU students, five involved in marketing and six with journalism. The program is meant for these individuals to delve into marketing roles centered on General Motors’ vision for a fully-electric future and journalism with the NNPA organization.

“Chevrolet is honored to continue our partnership with the NNPA for DTU, providing HBCU students professional and personal growth opportunities,” said Steve Majoros, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “The fellows made an impact on our Chevy Marketing team as they navigated new experiences – including working with large corporations, virtual work environments and time management skills – and learned how to effectively convey the benefits of EVs to their local communities, all while exemplifying professionalism and passion.”

On a national level, NNPA publishers also facilitated the activities for the six journalism majors this summer. These individuals were presented with print, broadcast, digital, and photojournalism skills, together with experiencing the Chevrolet Bolt EUV in person.

“The NNPA and Chevrolet partnership has been and continues to be extremely productive supporting aspiring journalists and amplifying their voices” said NNPA President and CEO Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. “Students worked alongside our renowned publishers for an in-depth experience while understanding how to bridge the gap between traditional and new-age journalism, and we cannot wait to see how their stories change EV myths within their communities.”  

During the course of the program, students were able to build content and enticing stories related to the Chevy Bolt EUV, electrification, and EV adoption, enabling them to serve agents of change within their local communities.

Antonio Andrews, a fellow 2022 DTU student, said he applied to the program because he wanted to work with electric vehicles. “The automotive industry is undergoing its largest transition since inception,” he stated. “To be able to give insight and have access to new and innovative concepts is a dream come true.”

The 2022 DTU program was expanded by significant industry mentors and reputable alums. Terrance J, American actor, model, and entertainer, who is a program ambassador, marshaled the students in New Orleans as they engaged in The Big Easy Bolt Race. This is a systematized team ride-and-drive scavenger hunt to understand more about electrification on top of Black history and New Orleans culture.

“As a graduate of North Carolina A&T State University with a mass communication degree, I understand the passion and enthusiasm that HBCU students bring to the table,” said Jenkins. “I was elated to work alongside these students and provide an opportunity to connect and motivate each of them into their future careers.”

Justin Shaifer, TV host, producer, and STEM advocate returned to DTU as the fellows’ mentor for the second year, encouraging students to “take what you’re asked to do and go above and beyond to operate with excellence at every step” during the program’s closing ceremonies in Detroit. He continued, “This is a phenomenal program, and it was an honor to be a part of these incredible young professionals.”

Emmanuel Dorvil, a former DTU fellow and current DMAX group leader explained while musing on the DTU program that the college venture equipped him for his career at General Motors, “My foot was on the gas pedal for my career. I had to ensure I was always prepared, whether it involved vehicle releases or increasing multicultural diversity with EV consumption. The exposure of this program sets you apart – the ability to connect with others is what we need as aspiring young professionals.”

Chevrolet gifted each of these students with a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 stipend. Thus far, DTU has awarded 49 HBCU students over $600,000.

3 Reasons to Consider the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 recently received several upgrades that have increased its capability and versatility. The light-duty pickup truck also received an upgrade to its interior cabin thereby raising its status within the truck segment. As one of Chevrolet’s most popular pickups, the Silverado 1500 has continued to receive updates that have been focused on increasing its performance and capability. Chevrolet has also started work on an all-electric Silverado 1500 which will compete with others like the Ford F-150 Lightning. Since there is some time before the official debut of the 2024 Silverado EV, we thought we’d take a look at the 2022 Chevy Silverado and detail three reasons why consumers should consider it.

  1. The 2022 Chevy Silverado Offers Impressive Performance

One of the first reasons to consider the 2022 Chevy Silverado is its performance capabilities. The light-duty pickup truck arrives with several powerful engine options. These include a 2.7L turbo high-output, a 5.3L EcoTec V8, a 6.2L EcoTec V8, and a Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel. The 2.7L delivers 310 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. The 5.3L delivers 355 horsepower and 383lb-ft of torque while the 6.2L offers 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. Finally, the 3.0L delivers 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0L also provides up to 13,300 pounds of towing capacity and up to 2280 pounds of payload. 

  1. The 2022 Chevy Silverado Has Off-Road Capability

Another reason to consider the 2022 Silverado is its off-road capability. When equipped with the ZR2 trim, the Silverado offers unparalleled off-road capability and versatility. The off-road trim comes equipped with a 420 horsepower 6.2L V8 engine and 33-inch off-road tires. The light-duty pickup truck also has multimatic spool-valve dampers and a 31.9-degree approach angle to go with its steel front bumper. The ZR2 trim offers large underbody aluminum skid plates so that owners stay protected when going over tough terrain. There’s also a 2-speed transfer case with Terrain mode.

  1. The 2022 Chevy Silverado Has an Updated Interior

The third and most significant reason to consider the 2022 Silverado is its updated interior cabin. Chevrolet redesigned the light-duty pickup giving it a new dashboard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. There’s also a 13.4-inch touchscreen that features Google Assistant integration along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The touch screen offers voice recognition and a navigation interface. Aside from the technology, the updated Silverado offers a two-tone leather upholstery with open-pore wood trim. There are also driver assist and safety features like Super Cruise, forward collision alerts, blind-spot monitoring, and emergency braking. At a starting MSRP of $33,800 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Chevy Silverado proves to be an impressive and highly capable pickup truck that’s worth considering.

The 2023 Chevrolet Equinox Gets High Praise From Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports

The Chevy Equinox crossover isn’t just a best-selling utility vehicle of the company; it’s also the bow-tie brand’s second best-selling vehicle before the Silverado truck. Recently, the non-profit product testing site, Consumer Reports, has given the 2023 Chevy Equinox a “recommended” rating.

This rating comes from a few different tests:

  • Road test rating – 77/100
  • Owner satisfaction rating – 3/5
  • Predicated reliability rating – 3/5

These three categories created an overall score of 67 out of 100 points.

For the performance category, Consumer Reports gave the Equinox compact a 4/5 for transmission and braking and a 3/5 for acceleration and emergency handling. The formerly named Consumers Union noted that the SUV offered good road manners, though they felt that the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine seemed to lack refinement.

Concerning Owner Satisfaction, owners rated the driving experience as 68/100. Comfort received 64/100, while value got 56/100.

As for reliability, the Equinox SUV received a score of 46/100. Considering other vehicles in its class, this puts the vehicle near the bottom half, smothering competitors like the Ford Escape Hybrid and Tesla Model Y with scores of 42/100 and 38/100, respectively.

All in all, Chevrolet performed well in Consumer Reports’ latest rankings. On top of the Equinox, four other 2023 Chevy models obtained a recommended rating, including the Chevy C8 Corvette, Chevy Blazer, Chevy Trailblazer, and Chevy Traverse.

It’s worth noting that the newest Chevy Equinox received its most significant update by implementing the formerly mentioned LSD engine. The all-new powertrain has an output of 175 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, swapping out the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine. Heedless of the new powertrain, the company’s same 6–speed automatic transmission found in previous model years of the crossover acts as the only transmission option.

Regarding the structure, the Chevy Equinox journeys on the parent company, General Motor’s D2 platform. Production started on August 22nd at the GM San Luis Potosí plant and the GM Ramos Arizpe plant.

Best Features Of The 2023 Chevy Equinox

OnStar

This system provides services like emergency service calls, roadside assistance, and vehicle diagnostics. A 5-year subscription comes with every new Equinox SUV.

Hands-Free Tailgate Operation

The rise of a foot near the sensor will activate the tailgate’s opening. One should know, however, that this will only be found on the top-ranking Premier trim. It’s only until the RS trim that a powered tailgate can be made an option.

Safety Alert Seat

Lastly, this vibrating seat cushion warns drivers of approaching hazards. It can sense what’s coming from the left side of the driver and the right side. This feature is also exclusive to Premier models.

All-New 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray Discovered in Leak

The all-new 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray was recently discovered in a leak. Discovered by a MidEngineCorvetteForum member, the Corvette E-Ray was spotted while the member was playing with the configurator tool. While no performance standards were uncovered, it confirmed that the Corvette E-Ray would be coming to markets and that the sports car would be a hybrid. A company representative of Corvette Blogger further confirmed the leak by stating that Corvette fans should remain patient. Chevrolet has stated that two new sports cars were on the way, so the E-Ray is most likely one of them. The automaker has also been focused on its EV lineup, so it makes sense that the E-Ray would be a hybrid. We’ll take a closer look at the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray and see what consumers can expect.

2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray Confirmed

The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray was recently discovered thanks to a MidEngineCorvetteForum member. The member stumbled upon the hybrid sports car while using the Corvette configurator. Although no performance standards were revealed, it still proves that the E-Ray is alive and on its way. A Corvette Blogger representative further confirmed this, who stated that Corvette fans should stay tuned for more. The screenshots from the forum member indicate that the hybrid sports car should arrive in the summer of 2023. The 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray should also come with several paint options: Cacti, Riptide Blue, and Sea-Wolf Gray.

The discovery of the Corvette E-Ray is excellent news. While Chevrolet may have wanted to host a more grandiose reveal, the cat is out of the bag. General Motors president Mark Reuss recently stated that two new Chevy sports cars were on the way. One has been said to be a new version of the Corvette C8, while the other was left unclear. Thankfully, this latest leak has confirmed that the next sports car to arrive from Chevy will be the Corvette E-Ray. Looking at the screenshot, the sports car appears to have a similar body style to the Z06 but with wider hips. It also features quad exhausts, further indicating it will be a hybrid.

Based on the leaked screenshot, the 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray also appears to have a button on the left of the center console indicating that the sports car will feature a regenerative braking system. Hybrids and EVs typically utilize this system to harvest energy that would be lost while braking. The system then puts that energy back into the battery. The sports car also has a button for start/stop technology which will help improve the engine’s efficiency. The E-Ray does not appear to have a charging port, which means it will not be a plug-in hybrid. Overall, it’s good news to have the hybrid 2024 Chevy Corvette E-Ray confirmed. Consumers can expect an all-electric sports car to arrive soon, but we can focus on the Corvette E-Ray.

The Chevy Malibu Sedan Gets Recharged

A Chevy Malibu EV Sedan?

This past decade, we’ve seen a significant surge in the popularity of SUVs and crossovers, ultimately leading to the slow downfall of Chevrolet’s previous fan-favorite, the Malibu sedan. For the past few years, this mid-sizer has been showing its age regarding its gradual fade into obscurity. However, all hope is not lost because there is the future of the Malibu car; according to General Motors president Mark Reuss, the automaker will have another electric revamp. During a recent Investor Day presentation in China, Reuss revealed that Chevrolet is toling with a “low-roof” EV that will have sedan-like proportions.

The upcoming electric sedan has just moved into the early stages of development. Still, according to Reuss, the design is quite “dramatic,” saying that the EV will take up the same mid-size segment as the current-gen Malibu. This possible successor has already been approved for the Chinese market, as sedans are still a hot commodity there, but the company may eventually offer this car in North America. Reuss seemed to entertain the thought of the EV’s availability in the U.S., saying at the function, “… we’ll see the desirability as we clinic this.”

Chevrolet recently introduced an electric sedan concept in China dubbed the FNR-XE. Its design gives us a taste of the EV that Reuss suggested. On top of this, the concept is derived from the Ultium battery platform. The overall shape resembles the Honda e:N2 concept, which was revealed for China last month. Honda and GM are already joining forces for the electric crossovers, with the Chevy Blazer EV and Honda Prologue acting as bunkmates for the same platform.

GM introduced four new EV models derived from the platform, but the other three that have been introduced include the Cadillac Lyriq, GMC Hummer EV, and the Buick Electra-X.

GM said at the function:

“From fuel to electric, from horsepower to computing power, new technology has become a new engine to drive the upgrading of automobile products and promote the leapfrog development of the automobile industry.”

The Malibu’s possible fully-electrified successor will be introduced to the Chinese market toward the end of 2024. Therefore, if GM decided to bring it to the U.S., it likely wouldn’t begin until at least 2025.

While various customers have been captivated by SUVs in recent years, the Malibu sedan still represents a good chunk of Chevy’s sales. After seeing a significant decline in 2021, specifically a drop of 102,651 units in 2020 to just 39,376 units, the Malibu bounced back this year, with nearly 80,000 units sold through the third quarter.

While there is still a market for sedans in North America, an electric version of the Malibu may be what the company needs to bring a full-on resurgence to the car, especially as we shy away from gas-powered vehicles.

When the time comes for you to purchase the production version of the Malibu EV or any other vehicle from Chevrolet, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide variety of cars from the brand that ranges in several shapes and sizes.

2024 Chevrolet Montana Makes its Official Debut

The 2024 Chevrolet Montana is finally here. After being teased for several months, the unibody compact pickup truck will make its way to Brazilian markets. Chevrolet unveiled the 2024 Montana during a special broadcast on the Chevrolet Brasil YouTube channel. There, the automaker highlighted its strategy for the compact pickup truck and some of its features and capabilities. As of late, the automaker has been focused on its electric lineup. EVs like the Chevy Silverado EV and Colorado EV have been priorities, but this doesn’t mean Chevy isn’t showing love for its combustion engine vehicles. As the latest gasoline vehicle to debut, the 2024 Chevy Montana offers impressive capability and versatility. We’ll take a closer look at the compact truck and see what consumers can expect. 

What to Expect From the 2024 Chevy Montana

The all-new 2024 Chevy Montana has officially debuted. Revealed on the Chevrolet Brasil YouTube channel, the unibody compact pickup truck was highlighted as an innovative concept that combines utility and versatility. Riding on a variant of the GEM platform, the 2024 Montana features a crew-cab body configuration with a Chevy-Blazer-inspired front end. The pickup also features black plastic cladding on its lower body, roof rails, and a sports bar above the bed. The multi-flex cargo bed offers 30.87 cubic feet of space and has an advanced tonneau cover sealing system that provides waterproof protection. About the Chevy Montana, GM South America president and CEO Santiago Chamorro said, 

“This innovative concept from new Montana fits perfectly with the new habits, values, and needs of the consumer, who seeks a healthier lifestyle, with better harmony between work and leisure, with more productivity and satisfaction,” said President and CEO of GM South America, Santiago Chamorro, in an official press release. “Only such a multifunctional and disruptive car could deliver all this with quality and prestige,” he added.

The 2024 Montana arrives with a 1.2L turbocharged engine that delivers 133 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque. This engine can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic. The compact pickup truck also features a forward-wheel drive setup. Those interested in the 2024 Chevy Montana will be happy to know the pickup has entered a special pre-sale period. It will arrive at Chevrolet dealers in Brazil in February 2023. While the Montana will be built at the General Motors Brazil plant, it will also be offered in other South American countries.

The Chevy Suburban’s 250,000-Mile Journey

Longevity In The Chevy Suburban

When it comes to discussions regarding the longevity of a vehicle, it’s nearly impossible not to involve the Chevrolet Suburban in the conversation. Currently, this full-size SUV is in its 12th generation, as it’s been cruising the streets since 1935. Today, this vehicle has served as one of the longest-lasting automobiles on the market.

According to a study conducted by iSeeCars, the Suburban SUV is ranked third on the list of 20 cars, with the greatest lifespan and potential mileage of 265,732 miles or more. The only vehicles with higher potential longevity belong to Toyota, like the Sequoia, ranking at the top with a possible mileage of nearly 300,000 miles.

The Chevy Suburban ranked higher than other vehicles on the list, such as Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade, and Cadillac Escalade ESV.

To gather data for this study, iSeeCars assessed over two million vehicles sold within ten years in the past 20 model years and then ranked the models by the example of their highest-achieving mileage. All the ranked vehicles had a minimum of two percent of units exceeding 200,000 miles, while the elite one percent of the cars journeyed between 230,000 and just below 300,000 miles over the past two decades.

“What we see is a list of highly-durable vehicles, capable of more than a quarter-million miles of use if properly maintained,” said Karl Brauer, iSeeCars Executive Analyst. “And to be clear, this study isn’t reporting the maximum lifespan of these vehicles. This is simply a measure of current odometer readings. Most of these cars are still in use and going strong.”

With relevance to the foundation of this reliable SUV, the current 2023 Chevrolet Suburban has three available powertrain options. These motors involve the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 with an output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine producing 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, which pushes out 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

Underneath the hood, the latest Suburban SUV, along with the 2023 Chevy Tahoe, tags along the GM T1 platform, while production takes its form at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2023 Chevrolet Suburban also has plenty of in-car features to enjoy, such as an 8-inch touchscreen, with an infotainment system that includes wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Wi-Fi, satellite radio, Bluetooth, five USB-A ports, and one USB-C port. It also has helpful driver assist features like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance, automatic high beams, and a following-distance indicator.

When the time comes to purchase the 2023 Suburban, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide variety of vehicles from the brand that range in various shapes and sizes. View our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for more information.

2023 Chevy Bolt EV Earns J.D. Power ALG Residual Value Award

The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV was recently awarded J.D. Power’s 2023 ALG Residual Value Award. Operating as a data analytics and consumer intelligence company, J.D. Power conducts studies to determine the best vehicles in various segments. For its 2023 ALG Residual Value Award, the 2023 Bolt EV was among several recipients chosen for its high resale value. As an EV, the Chevy Bolt proves to be highly efficient and versatile. Its affordability also makes the all-electric hatchback a favorable choice for those just getting into the EV segment. While Chevrolet has been busy working on new EVs like the 2024 Silverado EV and the 2026 Colorado EV, its current EV lineup continues to be competitive. We’ll take a look at the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV and see why it retained its great resale value.

2023 Chevy Bolt EV Offers Great Resale Value

The 2023 Chevy Bolt EV was recently awarded the 2023 ALG Residual Value Award by J.D. Power. As a data analytics company, J.D. Power has served as a key figure in the automotive industry for its reliable consumer research. The consumer intelligence company releases annual surveys and reports that help consumers determine the best-valued vehicles. One of its recent reports was the 2023 ALG Residual Value Award. This award is determined by using an extensive process that utilizes used-vehicle performance data, brand outlook, and product competitiveness. Chevrolet was 1 of 13 brands that were considered for the award. Altogether 291 vehicles were analyzed. Of them, the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Silverado were selected.

The 2023 Chevy Bolt EV arrives with similar performance standards as the previous year, but Chevrolet has significantly reduced the price of the electric hatchback. Starting at an MSRP of $25,600 (plus destination fee), the 2023 Bolt EV offers impressive capability and efficiency all at an affordable cost. The hatchback features an electric motor that’s capable of 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This motor sends power to the front wheels and provides the hatchback with quick acceleration. The Bolt EV is able to go from 0-60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. This, combined with an engaging sport mode, provides drivers with a dynamic driving experience.

In its analysis, J.D. Power included various trims across the different brands it considered. The analytics company used averages in its study that were based on percentage share compared to the entire brand lineup. This helped differentiate the differences between trims. The 2023 Chevy Bolt EV offers two different trims, the 1LT and 2LT. The 2LT offers owners a higher level of quality with more luxury features, but it does not improve overall performance or efficiency. Still, given its affordability and efficiency, the electric hatchback proves to be a reliable EV with strong resale value.

Two All-New Chevy Sports Cars Are on the Way According to GM President

Chevrolet has two all-new sports cars on the way. This news comes directly from General Motors president Mark Reuss who said that a pair of Chevy performance vehicles will arrive in 2024. Reuss previously hinted at the introduction of an all-electric Corvette in April which leads many to believe one of these new vehicles may be exactly that. The 2023 Chevy Corvette recently received some new performance upgrades so the introduction of an all-new Corvette is exciting. Especially if it arrives as an electric version with the same high performance everyone loves from the sports car. While not much information was revealed, we’ll see what Reuss said and what consumers can expect from Chevrolet.

Is There An Electric Chevy Corvette on the Way?

According to General Motors (GM) president Mark Reuss, there will be two new Chevy sports cars arriving in 2024. President Reuss had previously stated that an all-electric Corvette would be coming on the brand’s Ultium platform. Alongside an electric Corvette would be a hybrid version of the sports car. While Reuss did not disclose any definitive information about the electric and hybrid Corvette, he said that the names and performance specs would be released as they neared their debut. Fast forward to now and we still do not have much information. All we know is that two sports cars with the Chevy badge are coming as soon as 2024.

According to Reuss, one of the two sports cars will be a new version of the Corvette C8. Currently, the C8 is set to arrive with a powerful V8 engine that will allow the Corvette to exceed 200 mph. Whether this new version will be an all-electric or hybrid version we’re not sure. Speculation is that this new Corvette will carry the E-Ray moniker which was discovered in recent trademark filings. As a successor to the C8, the electric Corvette would likely feature a V8 engine with a front-mounted electric motor. It would also likely have all-wheel drive.

As for the other sports car, Reuss did not mention the name Corvette. This does not mean that the second car will be something entirely new, but rather it could be the long-rumored Zora. This potential hybrid sports car could carry also carry a V8 engine. Reuss mentioned that it would “set the standard of the world for performance for Chevrolet.” This is a bold claim so whatever it may be, it’s certain to be a high-performance vehicle. For now, we’ll be staying tuned for more information.

Which EV Pickup Is Right For You? 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Vs GMC Sierra EV

The all-new, all-electric 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is almost here. Chevrolet has been preparing for its first electric pickup, which is set to launch in early 2023. The Silverado EV will initially be offered with the WT trim, but the more powerful RST First Edition trim will arrive soon after. In friendly competition with the Silverado EV is the 2024 GMC Sierra EV which will come in early 2024. Both EV pickups represent their parent company General Motors, but since one is Chevrolet and the other is GMC, they will feature some differences. As of late, Chevrolet has been ramping up its EV production. This bodes well as a sign of confidence as the automaker believes consumers will show increased interest in its EVs. Since both the Silverado EV and Sierra EV are expected to offer high capability and efficiency, we thought we’d look at both and see what consumers can expect.

Expected Performance From Silverado EV & Sierra EV

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is expected to arrive with a dual motor setup capable of 510 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque. These will be the performance standards for the first trim released, the WT. Another trim called the RST First Edition will be available later, and it will feature a similar setup with 664 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. The 2024 GMC Sierra EV is also expected to arrive with a dual motor setup, though the EV pickup will likely feature greater capabilities. The Sierra EV will be available in a high-end Denali Edition 1 trim and offer 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque. Both electric pickups are expected to have a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. They will also feature unique power modes–Wide Open Watts for Chevy and Max Power Mode for GMC.

As for charging and range capabilities, the 2024 Silverado EV will feature a 24-module battery pack with 200 kWh capacity. This will provide the electric pickup with 400 miles of battery range. Owners can charge the Silverado EV at up to 350 kW, adding 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. The GMC Sierra EV will also feature 400 miles of battery range as both pickup trucks ride on the same EV platform. It will also feature similar charging capabilities to the Silverado EV. 

Inside the Silverado EV & Sierra EV

While the Silverado EV and Sierra EV feature similar body styles, their overall details are distinct. The Silverado EV has smoother edges and lines and has a full-width horizontal light line. The Sierra EV is a bit more chiseled and features a large brand plate in place of its front grille. Both trucks will feature a crew cab configuration and a fixed panoramic glass roof. Inside the pickup trucks are where the critical differences lie.

Inside, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV features a cleaner dash with a more traditional layout. The Silverado offers an 11-inch driver display and a 17-inch wide touchscreen display tilted toward the driver. The 2024 GMC Sierra EV features a central 17-inch touchscreen that is vertically oriented. The pickup also has a smaller driver display. Both pickups still offer physical knobs and buttons as well. The 2024 Silverado EV will start at an MSRP of $40,000 (plus destination fee), while the 2024 Sierra EV will start at an MSRP of $108,685 (plus destination fee). Both pickup trucks will feature additional trims, but the Silverado is the more economically viable option, especially since both trucks offer similar capabilities.

Everything New on the 2023 Chevy Lineup

The New Year of 2023 is right around the corner, bringing a slew of automotive updates, specifically with the Chevrolet brand, including some excitements for the 2024 year. Here’s everything you need to know.

2023 Chevrolet Colorado

The new 2023 Chevrolet Colorado uses a frame snaffled from its larger sibling, the Silverado truck. In company with its 3.1-inch longer wheelbase, this midsize vehicle flaunts a fully revived design on the inside out. Buyers have only one engine to choose from, a 4-cylinder 2.7-liter turbocharger that produces 237-310 hp and 259-430 lb-ft of torque, contingent on the trim. In most cases, it’s equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission, giving life to the rear wheels or an optional four-wheel-drive (4WD) system.

There are many technological features to revel in, such as the standard 11.3-inch infotainment display that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android compatibility. This display uses a Google-styled interface with applications for features like media and navigation. In the front, there is also a USB-A and a USB-C port, along with a wireless charging pad.

2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The full-size Chevrolet Silverado for 2023 has only gone through minute changes, with the main one being a mightier 3.0-liter turbodiesel I-6 option that produces 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque. This engine can be geared with custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country trims.

The lineup also introduces a ZR2 AEV Bison variant. This off-roader is geared with fiercer bumpers, underbody protection, and off-road suspension. Font tow hooks, 18-inch AEV wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, and the familiar ZR2 AEV Bison badging are just enough to top everything off.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 HD

The bow tie-badged brand applied some significant advancements to the 2024 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickups, with modifications including new exterior styling, six new colors for the interior, and new 18- and 20-inch wheel designs. A new High Country Midnight Edition package involves all-black accents, and the off-road-centered ZR2 trim becomes available on the company’s HD trucks for the first time.

The automaker also stepped up the output game of its turbodiesel V-8 engine to the likes of 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque. The old-school 6-speed automatic has also been swapped out for the Allision 10-speed automatic.

New trailer technologies are making their way into this HD-level vehicle. With technology, one can use adaptive cruise control while towing to determine aerodynamic drag, anticipating greater braking distances. The brand’s Transparent Trailer system has also been expanded to collaborate with fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers, along with the blind-spot monitoring taking responsibility for the trailer’s blind zones.

Chevy’s cabin has been revamped with a larger available 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The truck’s interior also involves a new center stack layout, while High Country trims receive a new center console design with a wireless charger.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV

Finally, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV arrives as a standalone model on General Motors’ electric vehicle platform. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) dual-motor setup will generate an incredible 754 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque, which supposedly will push 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds. This EV will drive on an adjustable adaptive air suspension and all-wheel steering. Hauling features involve an eTrunk front trunk, Chevy’s Multi-Flex Midgate, and Multi-Flex tailgate.

Reaching inside, the cabin is decked out with a 17.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 14.0-inch head-up display, and an 11.0-inch digital instrument cluster. It also adds a glamorous panoramic glass roof.

The 2023 Chevy Colorado Vs The 2023 Toyota Tacoma, Which Wins Out?

The 2023 Chevy Colorado recently received a new redesign. The mid-size SUV now arrives with a new exterior and interior while maintaining its high capability. Chevrolet has been busy preparing for new EVs like the 2024 Silverado EV and the 2026 Colorado EV. However, this electrification effort has kept the automaker from improving its combustion engine lineup. Within the truck segment, one tough competitor to the 2023 Colorado is the 2023 Toyota Tacoma. The Tacoma has long been a popular mid-size pickup with a lot to offer. Unfortunately, it has received different attention than Chevy Colorado. We thought we’d look at both pickup trucks and see which proves the better choice for the 2023 model year.

2023 Chevy Colorado Vs. 2023 Toyota Tacoma

The 2023 Chevy Colorado has a brand-new look for the 2023 model year. The 2023 Toyota Tacoma receives two new appearance packages; otherwise, the popular mid-size pickup remains relatively unchanged. The Tacoma’s appearance packages add minor details and features, while the 2023 Colorado arrives with a new body design, an updated powertrain, and a redesigned interior cabin. The Colorado is also more affordable than the Tacoma. The 2023 Colorado starts at an MSRP of about $28,000, while the 2023 Tacoma starts at an MSRP of about $30,000. Those interested in the Colorado can get a higher trim for the price of the base Tacoma.

Looking at performance, the 2023 Chevy Colorado takes the gold with its new turbocharged 2.7L inline-four engine. Capable of 237 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque, the 2.7L is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Colorado also offers a 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft torque version of the 2.7L on its higher ZR2 trim. Meanwhile, the 2023 Toyota Tacoma offers a 2.7L four-cylinder engine that delivers 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Higher trims see an upgraded V6 engine capable of 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, but this still pales compared to the Colorado.

Given the differences between the 2023 Colorado and the 2023 Tacoma, it’s evident that the Chevy Colorado wins out. With more robust performance and greater capability at a lower cost, the Colorado proves to be the more optimal choice. The mid-size pickup offers consumers a new redesign instead of the outdated Tacoma. With the 2023 Chevy Colorado, consumers can also opt for a higher trim while still paying close to the same amount they would with the base Tacoma.

The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer Soldiers On As It Sells Out

It was in 1969 that Chevrolet introduced its dynamic Blazer SUV (originally the K5 Blazer). Since then, it’s been one of the fan favorites among families and mid-size vehicle enthusiasts everywhere. With the automaker making moves on its 2024 model year, there are plenty of reasons worth getting excited about this car icon and newly revamped electric.

Dynamic Specifications

The Blazer EV is arriving in three trims this time: 1LT, 2LT, and RS. This SUV will be made accessible during the summer of 2024, followed by a forceful SS version later. The SS model can speed up to 0-60 mph in under four seconds, with the engine producing 557 horsepower with 648 lb-ft of torque using dual electric motors. Meanwhile, base models will have a single motor with up to 300 horsepower.

Standard features on all 2024 Blazer EVs involve the brand’s Safety Assist package, which encompasses automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane-keep assistance with lane departure warnings, forward collision alerts, following distance assistance and indicator, and intelligent high beams.

These safety technologies are not only implemented in regular passenger vehicles. Still, they have also made their way into law enforcement vehicles for 2024 models, including various modifications to the SS trim level, like skid plates, police-rated tires, and additional racks and supports.

Intriguing Features

The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV has a starting price of $44,995 (plus destination fee) for the base 1LT front-wheel-drive (FWD) model. Then, the 2LT goes for $47,595 (plus the destination fee) and can be had in either FWD or all-wheel-drive (AWD). At the same time, the Blazer EV RS will go for $51,995 (plus destination fee) and will be available in any configuration, whether FWD or rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or AWD. Likely the most favored and forceful iteration, the SS is priced at $65,995 (plus the destination fee). Despite the trim, buyers will be granted a standard 8-year or 100,000-mile battery warranty. There is also an optional Regen on Demand system and One Pedal Driving, allowing the car the regenerate some kinetic energy back into the battery to extend the overall range.

With a serious history in the automotive industry with all of its glory and familiarity with Chevy fans, the Blazer EV is progressing into electrics and the rise of stricter emission regulations; this is the perfect time to do it. It appears this vehicle is a hit with the public, as it has already prompted the company to shut down reservations not long after it was made possible to prepare for a purchase. We expect that the remaining models will also disappear at a swift pace if the company opens the booker near the production time. With a mighty SS option, generous range, a reliable car maker, and top-notch design, it isn’t a surprise that the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV has already sold out.

Is The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV a Good Daily Commuter?

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV recently received new styling both inside and out. The electric hatchback has since seen a revival spurring Chevrolet to increase production. Affordable and practical, the Chevy Bolt EV continues to be a top contender within the EV segment. As of late, Chevrolet has been working on new EVs like the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and the 2026 Chevy Colorado EV. While these are expected to offer impressive capability and performance, the Chevy Bolt EV is a good introduction to EVs. While not as powerful as the upcoming Silverado and Colorado EV, the Bolt serves those looking for a capable alternative to combustion engine vehicles. As such, we thought we’d look at the electric hatchback and see whether it would make a good choice for the everyday commuter.  

How Well Does The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV Perform?

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EV comes equipped with a single electric motor capable of 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This motor sends power to the front wheels and provides the hatchback with good acceleration. The Chevy Bolt can hit 0-60 mph in just 6.5 seconds and offers owners a quick response time. The electric hatchback also has one-pedal driving, which increases regenerative braking. This allows drivers to speed up and slow down using only the accelerator pedal instead of the brakes. All in all, the 2022 Bolt EV offers a dynamic driving experience.

The 2022 Bolt EV offers 259 miles of battery range in range and charging capability. For charging, the Bolt EV comes with a dual-level charging cord that can plug into both level 1 and level 2 outlets. The Bolt has maximum level 2 charging, which has been increased to 11 kW. With a DC fast charger, owners can see 100 miles of range added every 30 minutes. If not, the electric hatchback will typically see a full charge in seven hours. While owners must ensure they get a whole night’s charge, the Bolt EV adds about 2.57 miles of range every minute it charges. To hit 80 percent from 0 will usually take a little more than 2 hours.

One thing that Chevy Bolt owners should consider is that a range of factors can affect battery range. While the Bolt offers 259 miles of range, depending on the weather conditions and driving style, this can increase to 270 miles. Factors like power delivery from the charging equipment used, battery temperature, and the length of commute can affect battery range. While near-perfect conditions are unlikely, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV is an excellent introduction to EVs. Starting at an MSRP of $31,500 (plus destination fee), the Bolt EV is an optimal choice for those wanting a capable and versatile daily commuter.

The Scoop On The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison And GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition

General Motors has shown the public the next generation of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and GMC Canyon AT4X. While there are many upcoming midsize trucks to choose from, our curiosity lingers around the next step that will take these off-roading explorers even further. According to the car blog site Muscle Cars and Trucks, a GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition may be coming, while a next-gen Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is also close at hand.

GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison

It’s expected that the GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition will sport the same off-road bumper as the Edition 1 model while tacking on an integrated winch and the conspicuous incorporation of an American Expedition Vehicles-branded engine snorkel. At the moment, this item can be had on the adventurous Chevy Colorado, and it seems as though GM is open to offering the snorkel straight from the factory this time. In particular, the configuration will differ from the previous Colorado model, as the last generation of the snorkel was fixed on the vehicle’s passenger side. The new snorkel appears that will be placed on the driver’s side. Bearing in mind that the new Chevy Canyon and Colorado utilize a different engine than before, this is likely the reason.

Another case of car brands offering factory-fixed snorkels is those that may be found on the rare Ford Bronco Everglades, which Chevrolet deems to be one of the rivals to the new Colorado ZR2. More than likely, this new feature will make its way to the new Colorado ZR2 and the GMC Canyon AT4X AEV Edition. It’s also a probability that both Chevrolet and GMC will have the optional snorkel in their distinct accessory catalogs.

Here’s the part where it gets crazy. At long last, General Motors is providing its midsize off-road trucks their set of appropriately proportionate tires. While next year’s Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will get a set of 33-inch kicks, along with the ever-first GMC Canyon AT4X, the upcoming Colorado ZR2 Bison and Canyon AT4X AEV Edition will involve 35-inch tires, imitating what one may have seen on the Jeep Wrangler Xtreme Recon and Ford Bronco Sasquatch. Indeed, this will excite off-road enthusiasts, together with the potential of genuine Beadlock wheels.

It seems as though General Motors is making even more moves as it leverages its ties with American Expedition Vehicles with the next-generation Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. In doing this, the two automakers are reconsidering a vehicle segment where their relationship originally began. Only this time, it appears that it’s pushing the supposed boundaries of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) off-road capability that hasn’t been seen in the midsize truck market.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Sees Major Upgrades

Chevrolet recently unveiled the newly redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The heavy-duty pickup arrives with a bold new look and increased capability. As of late, Chevrolet has been revamping its entire lineup. The automaker has been focused on rolling out its new electric vehicles like the Silverado EV and Colorado EV, but this hasn’t stopped Chevrolet from updating its combustion engine lineup. The 2024 Silverado HD is just one vehicle with increased performance and capability. We’ll look at the heavy-duty pickup and see what consumers can expect. 

2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Sees Increased Capability 

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD will arrive with a new redesign inside and out. The heavy-duty pickup truck will also feature upgrades to its powertrain, increasing its capability and versatility. Chevrolet has equipped the 2024 Silverado HD with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that pairs with both the 6.6L V8 and the Duramax turbo-diesel engine. This replaces the old 6-speed and allows the Silverado HD to maintain its peak power for longer. When equipped with the 6.6L V8 engine, the Silverado HD also sees greater towing capacity with a max of 26,000 pounds. Chevy has also optimized the heavy-duty pickup’s braking control allowing it to shift and downshift quicker. About the new 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, Chevrolet vice president Scott Bell said, 

“We’ve designed the Silverado HD to be our customers’ favored choice for true truck capability,” said Scott Bell. “The enhancements to the 2024 model build on its core strengths to provide an even stronger balance of the design, strength, and confidence that makes tackling the hard jobs, including trailering, easier and more convenient than ever.”

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD also features a new front fascia, new headlights, and a new grille. Additional features include standard tow hooks and Chevrolet lettering on the hood scoop. There are also several new exterior colors, including Dark Ash, Radiant Red, and Sterling Gray. Owners will find a new instrument panel inside the pickup with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen slanted toward the driver. There’s also a 12.3-inch driver display screen to complement it. Owners can choose between a regular cab, double cab, or crew cab configuration. They can also select dual-rear wheels on the Silverado 3500HD. Those interested in the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD can expect pricing to be announced as the pickup moves closer to production.

Everything There Is To Know About The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe RST Performance Edition

An SUV is now one of the most sought-after vehicles in the car industry, and automakers worldwide are responding, especially GM’s Chevrolet subsidiary. This full-size model produces an energetic 433 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque. Historically a best-selling three-row vehicle, the Performance Edition package, paired with a regular 2023 Tahoe RST, is an absolute gem to drive. Here are all the things you should know.

Blistering Speed

Timing at zero to 60 mph in 5.78 seconds, the RST Performance Edition can reach a quarter-mile time of 14.2 seconds at 97 mph and a maximum speed of 124 mph, making it the fastest 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe model that one can get.

To compare, the entry-level RST gets to 60 mph in 5.95 seconds and has a maximum speed of 112 mph, which is 12 less mph than the Performance Edition.

Brembo Braking

Considering just how swiftly the Tahoe RST Performance Edition can zip and zoom, the automaker thought it was necessary to supply it with larger Brembo brakes to make it compatible with that amount of power and speed.

The Performance Edition’s Brembo brakes are 25 percent larger than the ones in the base RST. On top of this, the car manufacturer refined the brake pedal to ensure that this Performance model stops quicker and safer than the current Tahoe.

Considerably Rewrought Suspension

The RST Performance Edition wouldn’t be the same without a reconditioned suspension. The automaker provided this model with significant fine-tuning with many chassis and suspension components from the Tahoe PPV (Police Pursuit Vehicle) package, with a mountain of its undercurrents fine-tuned by the same engineering unit, which elevated the springs, dampers, and anti-roll bar.

The company also lowered the ride height by 0.4 inches in the front and 0.8 inches at the rear. This way, the vehicle can stay firmly planted on the road.

Towing Power of 7,600 Pounds

Shoppers looking for a lean, mean hauling machine can rest easy with the Tahoe RST Performance Edition. As with the RST geared with the 6.2-liter V8 engine and four-wheel-drive (4WD) system, the Performance model has a towing power of up to 7,600 pounds, which is considered an impressive feat for a full-size SUV.

Should one’s application require a higher tow rating, it’s a good idea to consider Tahoe’s equipped with the 5.3-liter V8 engine, NHT Max Trailering package, and rear-wheel drive (RWD), as this combination provides 8,400 pounds of towing capacity.

Upscale Interior and Comforts

While the mechanical underpinnings are indeed fantastic, so is the interior. This model invites passengers with prime materials for the utmost comfort. The brand’s Luxury Package is typically priced at $3,025, but it serves as a standard for the Performance Edition. It has a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding third-row seats, memory settings for the seats, tiller, and side mirrors. A 10.2-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot are standard conveniences.

Buyers will also be pleased with the generous cargo space, as this athletic SUV has up to 123 cubic feet of carrying capacity when the third and second rows are folded down.

2024 Chevy Silverado EV to Feature Bidirectional Charging

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging. The all-electric pickup truck will be capable of providing backup energy to a plethora of sources. As one of Chevrolet’s most powerful EVs, the Silverado EV is set to launch with two available trims, the base WT and the RST First Edition. The Silverado EV WT will be the first to debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST will arrive later. General Motors will also be partnering with the residential solar company SunPower to develop a home energy system that is compatible with the Silverado EV. We’ll take a closer look at this partnership and see how it will affect the Silverado’s charging capabilities.

2024 Silverado EV Will Feature Bidirectional Charging Capabilities

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will feature bidirectional charging capabilities. Set to launch in 2023, the all-electric pickup will be available in two trims: the base WT and the RST First Edition. The WT trim will debut in the spring of 2023 while the RST First Edition will arrive later. The Silverado EV WT will come equipped with a dual motor setup that’s capable of 510 horsepower and 625lb-ft of torque. The Silverado EV RST First Edition will offer increased performance with 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. 

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV First Edition will feature a 24-module battery pack that offers 200 kWh of capacity. This battery pack will provide the electric pickup with 400 miles of battery range. Owners will also be able to charge their Silverado EV at up to 350 kW which will add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes.

The 2024 Chevy Trax Is A Beacon Of Hope For Budget-Conscious SUV Shoppers

General Motors has revealed a freshened-up version of its 2024 Chevrolet Trax, which is slightly bigger and remains the most affordable base-level SUV of its lineup. This new subcompact is much more sophisticated and sleek than the other chunky monkey SUVs it’s competing against. It also tacks on new features.

The only major thing this automaker has dropped from this SUV is its price, as the starting price comes out to $21,500 (plus destination fee), which is a couple hundred below the cost of the current Trax SUV. All versions of this vehicle, including the high-end RS models, will come out with figures below $25,000, according to executives from GM. This is considered dirt cheap nowadays, as the average price for a vehicle today is nearly $47,000 (plus destination fee).

According to Edmunds, there has been a spike in affordable SUVs, those with prices close to the upcoming Chevy model

While the North American car market has moved significantly towards SUVs, these vehicles still have a higher price tag than regular cars. That’s why compacts like the Trax are perfect for car shoppers who need extra storage space and a high seating position without paying a hefty price.

The reveal of the newest Trax SUV comes just weeks after the company presented the $30,000 (plus destination fee) Chevrolet Equinox EV. This electric SUV will be one of the most affordable SUVs on the market, which according to company executives, serve as proof that GM’s Chevrolet brand aims to bear its position at the cost-effective bottom end of the car market, even as other competitors offer base models for a significantly higher cost.

The 2024 Trax will get its gears going thanks to a 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, which will produce 137 horsepower and will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. It will also come solely with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) system.

GM’s scheme of bringing in two budget-friendly SUVs in this segment is comparable to other car companies, like Hyundai with its FWD Venue or even the slightly more expensive AWD Kona.

The Trax and Trailblazer share several inner workings, which include the 3-cylinder engine. Both SUVs will be produced at the same South Korean GM factory. The Trax is a bit longer and lower. It measures 11 inches longer and nearly two inches wider than the current Trax. It can also be had in available RS versions with snazzier design features, such as unique wheels and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. There are additional design elements and other added features, such as heated front seats, but performance is relatively the same as the other Trax models.

The automaker also glories in the Trax’s optional features like active cruise control, which automatically keeps a safe distance from other cars on the highway, a system one would typically find on more expensive vehicles. Active noise cancellation will also serve as a standard on every Trax SUV. This feature implements inaudible sound waves made possible by the vehicle’s stereo speakers that offset some noises like those from the tires and engine.

The 2024 Chevrolet Trax will be on sale in the spring of 2023. When the time comes to purchase this model, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide variety of vehicles from this brand that ranges in different shapes and sizes.

Chevrolet Aims to Increase 2023 Chevy Bolt EV Production

General Motors (GM) will increase the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV production. The all-electric SUV will also see a significant price cut to increase interest. As of late, GM has been focused on its electrification efforts. With new EVs like the Chevy Silverado EV, Chevy Equinox EV, and Chevy Colorado EV, GM has a lot on its plate. The automaker has also been seeing much more interest in the Chevy Bolt EV, increasing production. GM hopes more consumers will be compelled to try an electric vehicle by making the Bolt more affordable. We’ll look at the 2023 Chevy Bolt and see what consumers can expect. 

GM Will Increase Chevy Bolt Production 

General Motors (GM) will be increasing the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV production. The automaker will be ramping up its production in an attempt to capitalize on solid sales numbers. The all-electric SUV has seen increased interest since GM slashed its starting price by about $5,900. The 2023 Chevy Bolt EV now starts at an MSRP of $25,600 (plus destination fee). GM hopes the reduced price will keep the Bolt EV competitive in the emerging market.

The 2023 Chevy Bolt EV arrives with a single motor setup that delivers 200 horsepower and 266lb-ft of torque. The electric SUV utilizes front-wheel drive, which grants it impressive acceleration. The Bolt EV is also quite responsive so that drivers will have an engaging driving experience. As for its range, the Bolt EV offers 259 miles of range. The electric SUV is available with a dual-level charging cord that can be used with Level 1 (120-volt) and Level 2 (240-volt) outlets. The Bolt can also be charged with a DC fast charger that adds 100 miles of range every 3 minutes with a Level 3 connection. 

GM will aim to produce about 70,000 Chevy Bolt EVs for the 2023 model year. After seeing the electric SUV hit record sales numbers for the 3rd quarter of 2022, the automaker decided to focus on supplying more of the EV. While GM and Chevrolet have been updating their combustion engine lineup, it’s clear that EVs will be a primary focus for some time. Chevy also offers the Bolt EUV alongside the Bolt EV as a larger SUV alternative. Both will see production increases.

The Marvelous History Of The Chevy Z06 Corvette

The iconic Chevrolet Corvette has gone through many changes and iterations over the years. Fans of the brand are likely more familiar with the upcoming mid-engine 2023 Z06, but its origins actually date back to 1962. Let’s explore just how far this exotic vehicle has come.

The Original 1963 Corvette Z06

Zora Arkus-Duntov is considered one of the greats in automotive history for his cultivation of the sporty Corvette of 1963. The Belgian-born American engineer was a racing enthusiast, and he believed that General Motors (GM) selling point was an optional package for Corvette lovers in the racing industry. This fostered the then unfamiliar RPO (Regular Production Option) box on the vehicle’s order sheet.

Nearly all of these coupes were powered by a 360-hp 327-cubic-inch V-8, four-speed manual transmission, and Positraction rear axle. The Z06 package could be had with a larger 36.5-gallon fiberglass fuel tank that made way for longer track sessions, leading to monikers such as “tanker” and “big tank.”

The 2001 Corvette Z06

By the time C3 or C4 generations of the Corvette came about, Z06-badged models were non-existent. To be frank, Chevy didn’t even bother to produce another Z06 nearly 40 years after the 1963 introduction. Fortunately, the company eventually decided to bring back the race-inspired car for the Corvette C5, in 2001. It followed a similar style to the OG Z06 by making performance the ultimate priority, even becoming one of the first production cars to lap the esteemed Nürburgring track in less than 8 minutes.

The 2006 Corvette Z07

Once lovers of the Corvette got the chance to experience the ultimate thrill of the C5 Z06, Chevy followed it up with something far more exhilarating. In 2006, the Z07 cranked up its track capability, while also giving it a special aluminum frame that the company claimed was 136 pounds lighter than the steel structure on the traditional version. It also had an upmarket 505-hp 7.0-liter V-8 LS7 engine. During this time, the LS7 was the most powerful Corvette ever produced and implemented technology from the corporating racing program.

The 2015 Corvette Z06

When the fourth version of the Z06 came into fruition in 2015, it came packing heat with a hellish 650-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. The C7 also had many firsts, which included an available automatic transmission, along with a targa top and convertible body styles.

2023 Z06 Corvette Zenith

Saving the best for last is of course the 2023 mid-engine Corvette Z06. Clearly, the most fantastical Vette in the history of Vettes is powered by a naturally aspirated flat-plane-crank 5.5-liter V-8, exceeding its predecessors with 670 horsepower.

This special Corvette has been augmented for track duties like its forefathers. The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels (with optional carbon-fiber versions) and a slew of chassis advances are intended to help this sports god get every minute second that it can from every lap, even more so when the more intense Z07 track package, that comes with added aerodynamics, higher spring rates, carbon-ceramic rotors, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, are blended into the Vette’s engine configuration.

Everything You Need To Know About The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD Trucks

Chevy is bringing out the big guns with its Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickup trucks for the 2024 model year. These revamped models will be receiving new aesthetic adjustments, a swankier interior design, and some adjustments to the mighty machinery.

New Engine Setup

While the refinement of Chevy’s interior helps makes the cabin maintain a clean and fresh look after getting down and dirty with the exterior, what really matters is how well tweaks are made to the engine. The standard powertrain is a 6.6-liter V-8, which is the same thunderous 401 horsepowered machine with 464 lb-ft of torque. Only now it’s matching it with a 10-speed automatic transmission rather than a 6-speed automatic. 

Then, there’s the optional Duramax diesel 6.6-liter V-8, which continues its partnership with the same Allison 10-speed automatic, however, its output has gotten a considerable increase with 470 horsepower (vs 445) and 975 lb-ft of torque (vs 910). The company says that these figures were increased due to the control architecture, combustion system, and turbocharger.

Reworked Interior and Clever Technologies

For the 2024 model, the supersize me Silverados are all flaunting new styles, starting even from the base-level Work Truck. The LTZ and High Country trims get a newly refreshed grille and C-shaped lighting features, as well as new dual-projector headlights with animated sequences activated when the driver either walks away or approaches the vehicle. The automaker also gears the upcoming Silverado with new wheel options that include chrome 20-inch wheels for the LTZ, along with lustrous 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tires assigned to the dual-rear-axle 3500HD. On top of this, certain packages feature a set of 20-inch off-road booties. The blacked-out Midnight Edition can also be had (for the first time) as an option of the High Country.

These updated HDs tack on a new dashboard design with grand digital displays, while the revised layout and technological features are nowhere to be found on the Work Truck or Custom trim levels, the LTs and up offer this as a standard. This setup involves a changeable 12.3-inch gauge cluster and a 13.4-inch touchscreen with Google-derived software and apps. The new cabin also brings along an updated center console with a wireless charger and extra space for the cupholders. The top-tier Silverados encompass real leather-wrapped surfaces and authentic wood accents. Distinctively in the High Country, there is a  new Nightshift Blue interior option involving all of the high-ranking materials.

This truck also includes several driver assists such as adaptive cruise control that aids in pulling a trailer, along with a blind-spot monitor that has a new extended range for trailering. There is even a new alert that lets drivers know if they exceed the HD’s GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating).

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD are set to go on sale during the half of next year. Chevrolet says that pricing will be revealed closer to the on-sale date. 

When the time comes to purchase either one of these vehicles, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. If you find something that suits your liking, feel free to chat with one of our representatives for further information.

Chevrolet to Offer ‘Build Your Own Engine Program’ for 2023 Corvette Z06

2023-corvette-z06

Chevrolet will be bringing back its ‘Build Your Own Engine’ program for the 2023 Corvette Z06. The automaker will allow consumers to have more control of their engine and how it is assembled. Consumers can also make use of the online configuration tool to customize their Corvette how they want. Chevrolet has been steadily making small adjustments and improvements to the all-new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 to ensure the sports car offers the highest performance yet. With a max speed of 195 mph, consumers will have one of the most powerful Corvettes yet. This program will allow consumers to cooperate with Chevy technicians as they build their Corvette Z06 engine. Chevy has offered the program before, but we’ll take a look at what consumers can expect. 

Chevy to Bring Back Corvette Z06 Engine Program 

Chevrolet recently announced that it will be bringing back its ‘Build Your Own Engine’ program for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. The program will be available in the second quarter of 2023. Consumers will be able to work directly with Chevy technicians as they assemble the engine for their Corvette Z06. This cooperation will ensure that consumers get the most out of their Corvette. Chevy will only offer the program for Corvettes using the LT6 powertrain which means the Z06. About the program, Chevrolet plant director Kai Spande said,

“This is a real challenge for us because this is such a new engine and it’s much more complex than what we’ve ever done in the past,” said Kai Spande. “We’ve done some things that I think will be very much appreciated by those that build their engine,” Spande continued.

Chevrolet has offered the Build Your Own Engine program in the past. Previously, consumers would work directly alongside assembly-line workers as they assembled the engine. This time, however, Chevy will be designating a specific area of the Bowling Green Kentucky factory in which participants will cooperate. This allows consumers to help professionals assemble their engines without having to go down to the assembly line. Chevrolet had initially offered the Build Your Own Engine program for $5,000. Given the new accommodations, however, the price may see an increase. Still, the opportunity to have direct control over your 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 engine is a great chance to ensure you get exactly what you want out of it.

The 2024 Chevy Equinox EV Provides A Satisfying Round Off To GM’s Portfolio

2024 Equinox EV

It’s safe to say that 2022 has been an electrifying year for Chevrolet, General Motors (GM) subsidiary. After parading around a slew of electric vehicles such as the Silverado EV and Blazer EV this year, the rollouts continue with the all-new 2024 Equinox EV; an affordable SUV made to provide an easy and seamless transition to an electric vehicle.

“We are at a turning point where EVs will be the mainstream choice for the next generation of customers, and Equinox EV will lead this charge for us,” said Mary Barra, Chair and CEO of General Motors. “With the flexibility of GM’s Ultium Platform, we are bringing to market vehicles at nearly every price point and for every purpose.”

The base Equinox EV 1LT, with a starting price of about $30,000 (plus destination fee), brings this Chevy model into the compact SUV segment and is expected to be the most inexpensive EV in this category. It should conclude the most important segments of the company’s EV portfolio: full-size trucks, midsize SUVs, and compact SUVs. It will also have an estimated 300 miles of range on a full charge.

Chevrolet is now positioned to offer a wide array of EVs,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “We know truck and SUV customers better than anyone, and we’ve channeled that insight and experience into our new EVs.”

On top of the Ultium-derived propulsion technologies, interior features consist of a large infotainment screen w/ an available 17.7-inch-diagonal system, a suite of standard and available driver assistance technologies, and available Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology for compatible roads.

“The Equinox EV is an EV for everyone,” said Bell. “It’s an affordable game-changer, offering an uncompromising experience, with more features that won’t change your daily routine — except that you will no longer have to stop at the gas station.”

Super Cruise Technology

GM’s hands-free, semi-autonomous Super Cruise driving assistant made its first introduction in the now-retired Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan and has slowly made its way to particular models in the automaker’s portfolio, such as the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Silverado, Chevy Bolt EUV and GMC Sierra. Many of GM’s next-gen electrics also involve the Super Cruise technology, including the all-new 2024 Equinox.

The Equinox EV will offer the Super Cruise as an option in the 2LT trim and above. This means those opting for the base 1LT will not get access to the Super Cruise system. Overall, 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trim levels, together with the sport-themed 2RS and 3RS, are among the trims offered for this new SUV.

The Super Cruise technology necessitates an active plan or trial, which begins at $25 per month as a standalone. The subscription for the Super Cruise can also be tacked onto specific OnStar plans for an extra $15 per month. This technology, also called an SAE Level 2 semi-autonomous system, permits hands-free driving on over 200,000 miles of North American and Canadian highways deemed compatible. This technology can also enable auto-lane changes and is harmonious with a trailer on certain GM vehicles.

The exact details and ordering for the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will be available closer to the beginning of production, which is set to take place at the General Motors Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. When the time comes to make your purchase of their latest EV iteration, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide variety of vehicles from the brand that range in several different shapes and sizes.

5 The Reasons Why The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Is A Sports Car Enthusiast’s Dream

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is arguably the most exhilarating sports car since its first inception. Lovers of this muscle car and car enthusiasts in the same vein will have several reasons to brag about the latest Vette model. Here are 5 The Reasons Why The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Is A Sports Car Enthusiast’s Dream.

Sensational and Powerful Styling

With every iteration, the Vette car has evolved its style, with the Chevy C8 proving to be no exception. Typically, supercar fans only care about the design and performance of the vehicle, and there’s certainly no dismissing the aesthetically pleasing and awestruck the Z06 truly is.

The performance of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is just as memorizing. The most aerodynamic model to come off of the Chevrolet production line. Its exceptionally arresting alloy wheels, rear lights, and particularly the rear spoiler are by far spotlight features of the outer body. Simultaneously, the vehicle’s angular curves make it an event in and of itself.

The Sharpest Handling

The newly standard Corvette is an extraordinary mechanical being, but the Z06 cranks it up several notches with awe-inspiring styling and handling that will exceed your expectations. This incredible machine has a track-centered suspension configuration and a chassis that finally measures up to its monstrous sibling.

With the help of its Z07 package, the mid-engine C8 Z06 flaunts nearly 30 percent higher ride frequencies. Likely one of the best features in this highly supported Corvette model is the participation of a helper spring in the latest C8 Z06, which enables the coil spring to go for a full rebound while doing away with any wheel travel leading up to it.

The Energetic Naturally-Aspirated V8 Engine

Seeing how gas-powered staples are slowly making their way towards retirement and any new performance-centered vehicle arriving at dealerships involves some sort of electrification or turbocharged engines, General Motors made the decision to make its Z06 car the flag carrier of unrestricted V8 power by decking it out with the most ferocious naturally-aspirated V8 ever produced.

The C8 Z06 Unparalleled Acceleration

The almighty Chevy Corvette Z06 brings out the most powerful output of 670 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque. The naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter V8 powertrain harmonizes with sophisticated tech to produce exceptional power, all of which pushes the Corvette from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.6 seconds.

This fantastic acceleration time puts this iconic vehicle into the circle of today’s best supercars, such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo, the Huracan Evo, and the Audi R8. In fact, the Z06 actually topples these vehicles in the 0-60 department, as their figures amount to  2.9s, 2.9s, and 3.1s respectively.

More Affordable And Reliable Than Most Supercars

The Chevy Corvette has also been seen as an inexpensive American super god, and that’s one of the best USPs (unique selling proposition) the vehicle has always had over its rein.

For a sports car, at $106,395, (plus destination fee), the Corvette is considered to be one of the most affordable vehicles in its segment, and this is also considering how well it outranks European rivals in its performance.
