If you are a truck lover, chances are you are an adventure seeking, outdoor enthusiast. Unfortunately, sometimes finding that perfect off-road beast to fill your adventure needs can be a struggle, as they are very expensive. For example the Ford Raptor with standard features starts at roughly $48,860. Well, Chevy has a solution for consumers — the new Colorado ZR2.
The new 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2 comes fully-loaded with all the features drivers need for off-roading. Priced at $40,995, the Colorado ZR2 is more than $7,000 less than the Ford Raptor and it is just as capable. So, hold out to buy your next off-roading truck until this the Colorado ZR2 is released this spring — it will be worth the wait.
The Colorado ZR2 is equipped with DSSV dampers that provide a two-inch lift. The truck has unique front control arms and its modified rear axle has a 3.42:1 crawling ratio. The truck rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 31-inch off-roading tires, and in case of tire or wheel damage, there is a spare tire mounted to the truck bed. Read the rest of this entry
Chevy is one of the most diverse automakers in the auto industry. Though they have a long heritage of making trucks, like the Silverado, or sportscars, like the Camaro and Corvette, Chevy isn’t afraid of evolving.
In the last few years, Chevy has been churning out several new fuel efficient models ranging from hybrids to diesels to electric cars and the newest addition is the all-new Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan.

Ugh, the struggle of getting in and out of the bed of your truck is so real! Well, imagine having a built-in step to help you get into your truck bed. All you’d have to do is just pull it out and climb right up into the truck bed. Whether you use the truck bed for hauling cargo, tailgate parties or both, this feature would be perfection. What if we told you that the possibility of a feature just as we described is actually not that far off from reality?
General Motors (GM) has officially received a patent for a truck tailgate step. Although GM hasn’t officially said the new patent would be a feature on upcoming trucks like the 2018 or 2019 Chevy Silverado, we are hoping to hear more about it soon. Read the rest of this entry
2017 is the Camaro’s 50th anniversary and Chevy is celebrating by releasing a special-edition 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition. But of course, Chevy is not the only one having fun. Since its creation in 1967, the Chevy Camaro has gained a large following of loyal car enthusiasts and we’re lucky enough to share the story of one of them, Brandon Hill.
Hill’s love for muscle cars and Camaros began during his childhood and as a kid he would watch his cousins drag race their 1969 Camaros. Though Hill has always appreciated all types of cars, especially muscle cars, it wasn’t until 2010 when the fifth-generation Camaro was released that he became a loyal fan.

When you think of American autos, Dodge, Chevy and Ford are three brands that come to mind. They are pioneers in the auto industry and they have all closely competed through generations of American history and they are all still competing today.

The beginning of all three brands goes back to the early 1900s. The Ford Motor Company was the first brand as it was founded in 1903 by the very famous Henry Ford. Eight years later, Louis Chevrolet and William Durant started Chevrolet in 1911 and three years later in 1914 the Dodge brothers, Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge, founded the “Dodge Brothers” brand.
