How It’s Made: After 60 Years The Mid-Engine Corvette Finally Gets The Limelight

 

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8, otherwise known as “America’s Sports Car,” has been the symbol of ultimate freedom and adventure for automotive enthusiasts everywhere since its debut. This year marked the first time this supercar was powered by a mid-engine rather than a front-engine, proving enhanced handling abilities. As revolutionary as this may seem, it isn’t the first time the brand has experimented with a mid-engine for the C8. The idea of the new engine started in the early ’60s, and finally picked up steam in 2011.

The production of the first-generation Corvette C1 started in 1953. Its knockout styling made it easy for it to draw the public’s attention. However, General Motors engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov (better known as “Father of the Corvette) envisioned a much brighter future for the car. That same year, the automaker hired Arkus-Duntov after the C1’s debut. After gradually climbing the ranks, he became the brand’s high-performance director in just two years. In 1955, the Corvette was released with an available 4.3-liter V8 engine.

Five years later, Arkus-Duntov orchestrated the CERV I, Chevrolet Engineering’s first research vehicle. Contrasting from the production Corvette, CERV I has a mid-engine layout on par with a Formula 1 racing vehicle. Highlighting the genius of Arkus-Duntov, as he knew that next-generation performance racing cars would eventually build upon a mid-engine chassis structure.

From the early 1960s to the mid-1990s Chevrolet only strummed up at least nine mid-engine prototypes for their Corvette before getting the C8 Corvette ready for production. The carmakers constructed various scale models and three clay renditions in actual size before giving it the final clearance. As far as we know, the Corvette with the spirit of the mid-engine supercar was the out-turn.

Now, at long last, the front-engine finally retires in favor of its successor. Presently, all C8 Corvette models sport a 6.2-liter small-block LT2 V8 engine breathing out 490 horses with 465 lb-ft of torque. If that isn’t enough, the Z51 Performance Package tacks on five more brownie points with both its horsepower and torque. Still staying true to its nature, the car is rear-wheel-drive, though a manual stick isn’t an option. The standard eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is still beneficial.

According to executive editor Chris Davies of car site, Slash Gear, the C8 Corvette Convertible was visually impressed with the engine’s engine’s supercar-beating merit. “The Stingray leaps ahead like a beast scalded, monstrously quick and with a soundtrack to match,” said Davies. This is indeed a supercar, as it goes from zero to 60 mph in 2.9-seconds and has a top speed of 194 mph.

This month, (Dec, 12), Chevrolet released one of a two-part documentary series “Revolution: The Mid-Engine Corvette Development Story,” in which the company’s design team discuss what inspired the design of their new mid-engine. The second part of this documentary will air next year on January 4th at 1 p.m. ET.

The 2021 Chevrolet SUV Lineup: Everything To Expect For The New Year

 

Chevrolet is offering a package deal when it comes to its compact crossover, full-size SUVs, and utility vehicles for its 2021 model year. New features to expect are pretty minor but also significant, like with special editions and fresh colors, including updates to the engine and trim levels. At the same time, the Tahoe and Suburban will get a complete makeover. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 Chevrolet SUV lineup!

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Now more than ever, subcompact crossovers are becoming all the rage for SUV lovers, and Chevrolet doesn’t disappoint the growing demand for one. The new 2021 Trailblazer is the brand’s entry-level SUV and has a front face that resembles a bit like its sporty cousin, the Camaro. The price seems pretty reasonable at just under $20,000, (plus the destination fee). Two engine choices that are offered include a 1.2-liter engine with 137 horsepower or a 1.3-liter engine with 155 horsepower.

2021 Chevrolet Trax

Chevrolet has another subcompact crossover that’s even smaller than the Trailblazer, which is the 2021 Trax. This model may a bit short but not in its features. The car comes with two new special editions available on the LT trim. The Sport Edition is decked out in black exterior accents, whilst the Midnight Edition fuses black accents with a Mosaic Black Metallic paint color. This car will be a breeze to park and will allow its passengers to take advantage of its storage space by its generous amount of cubbies.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact sports utility model with a refreshed design for 2021. However, the company revealed that the SUV will really be a 2022 model since the plans for their changes have been pushed back. What you need to know is that the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has been removed, and for now it’s being replaced by the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. One shouldn’t fret too much about this, as the 1.5-liter is expected to make a comeback when the new Equinox comes out.

This almost-2021 vehicle will now have an available leather package on the LT trim, which includes black perforated leather-appointed seats, memory settings, an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, and outside heated power-adjustable mirrors with auto-dimming.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer

The color palette on the 2021 Blazer is getting a bit of a switch-up, as colors like Pewter Metallic, Iron Gray Metallic, Cayenne Orange Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat are tagging along.

The brand’s Safety Assist package gift wraps automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and auto high-beams. These goodies come standard on the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trims.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse

The full-size Chevrolet Traverse is also getting a facelift for 2022 and only minute changes for 2021. Chevrolet’s Safety Assist will outplace the Driver Conference II package and will be standard on the RS, Premier, and High Country. It will also be available on LT.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

The restyled Tahoe not only joins a new platform but is also winning with an independent rear suspension and a better ride quality. This SUV is 6.7 inches longer than before and also has increased in its wheelbase.  Third-row passengers now have 40 percent more legroom and 66 percent more cargo volume. Front-seat passengers will also enjoy the 10.2-inch touchscreen.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban

The big and bad Suburban will share the same features as the Tahoe, as well as technologies, but one thing that makes it stand out is that the improvement in the interior space. The Suburban provides more legroom and cargo volume than its predecessor, specifically in the second-and third-row.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

At long last, Chevrolet is bringing on an electric crossover to their lineup. The production of the Bolt EUV will start in 2021, and based on the photos we’ve seen so far, it’s even more impressive than the current Bolt hatchback, with its increase in size and posher design. This car will also have a dashboard design that is more user-friend, as well as a new touchscreen and enhanced interior materials. The brand’s Super Cruise will also prove to be an asset to drivers once they get on the highway.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time finally comes to purchase any one of these Chevrolet SUVs, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall! We sell a wide range of crossovers, subcompacts, and full-sized trucks from the brand and at various prices.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Shows Off Its Diesel Power

Chevrolet Tahoe’s New Diesel Options

In North America, diesel engines usually aren’t considered the most appealing engine option and this was especially true in the 1970s. During this time, General Motors made the transition from a gas V-8 engine to a diesel for its (now deceased) Oldsmobile brand. These engines resulted in miserable reliability issues, mainly involving head bolts that had too much pressure from the diesel compression.

Many years later (in 2001) the American automaker made the introduction of its powerful and tough Duramax diesel V-8 for its heavy-duty truck, which certainly made up for Olddie’s failure. Even more fascinating is the recent installment of light-duty Duramax inline-six on trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and gradually on all of the company’s remodeled full-sized SUVs, one of them being the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe.

The new lake-named vehicle will be sporting a turbocharged 3.0-liter Duramax, one out of the three available engines. Base models already have an impressive boost with 355 horsepower on a 5.3-liter V-8, while the top-tier High Country is geared up by a standard 6.2-liter with 420 horsepower. The diesel will have 277 horsepower, which is the least of the group, however, it’s 460 lb-ft of torque matches the 6.2’s engine.

Oftentimes, diesel engines come at a heftier cost, one of the reasons being that they integrate pricy exhaust-treatment systems keep their sootier emissions composed, however, that won’t be the case this time around. High Country trims, for example, include a $1500 credit as opposed to the bigger V-8. Lesser models only have a $995 line item and the most affordable Tahoe with the Duramax has a starting price of $53,295, (plus destination fee). At the same time, the inclusive High Country model starts at $69,395, (plus destination fee). Of course, these prices don’t take into account the optional equipment.

Great torque output is usually an implication for massive towing capabilities. The 3.0-liter Duramax rates the least weight out of the Tahoe’s powertrains, but it’s 8200 lb rating is still strong and tough enough to make an impact. 

Choosing the Duramax won’t significantly change the driving behavior of the SUV. According to one car reviewer, their Tahoe model that was paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission made smooth and swift shuffles and reached 60 mph in 7.8 seconds; 5.8-liter powered models were only a second faster, and 6.2’s being the fastest.

The new diesel engine option isn’t just powerful, it’s also highly capable during the winter months. Unlike older engines, the 3.0-liter makes use of a fresh coolant-control system to be able to endure freezing temperatures. The Duramax’s computer manages flow to the head, engine block, oil, transmission cooler, cabin heater, cooler, as well as low and high-pressure exhaust-gas recirculation coolers. This enables the engine to send warm coolant to the cabin heater and with necessary haste. 

As one should expect with any big and bad SUV of General Motors, the diesel Tahoe has an independent rear suspension, which allows passengers to have their own personal space and also betters the quality of the ride as opposed to the previous solid-rear-axle system. On top of this, the interior quality and design have received a significant upgrade both aesthetically and comfort-wise. However, nothing compares to the car’s new and efficient diesel engine.

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has class-leading cargo space, incredible engine options, advanced technologies, and a great ability to accommodate and please passengers. Those who are interested in this vehicle can take a sneak peek at Miami Lakes Automall, we sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles like the Tahoe, and at a variety of different prices and variations.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2021 Ford Escape

 

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and 2021 Ford Escape are neck and neck in regards to their passenger space, impressive safety features and ratings, as well as their warranty coverage. However, even with identical twins, one of them has just a little bit more spice than the other. Let’s find out just how fraternal these SUVs are.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a package deal when it comes to providing comfort for all five of its passengers, impressive handling, and two fine engine choices, which is likely why it’s the brand’s best selling SUV. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has an EPA rating at a suitable 28 mpg combined and 27 mpg with all-wheel-drive. This car drives on 170 horsepower with 203 lb-ft of torque.

The All-American brand’s latest SUV has a great catalog of standard active-safety features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and even IntelliBeam automatic headlights.  It also has available blind-spot monitoring.

For entertainment, the Equinox has a  standard 7-inch touchscreen and an available 8-inch version. Both have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The truck also has keyless entry, push-button start, four USB ports, 17-inch wheels, and the Teen Driver System that allows parents of tweens with a heavy foot to set parameters and relay information on driving habits.

Highlighting optional features include ventilated front seats, navigation, Bose audio, a panoramic sunroof, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

2021 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape was restyled last year and grew in size while also dropping a few pounds. The base engine upgraded to a turbocharger with a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter engine, which produces a decent 181 horsepower with 203 1b-ft of torque. The next engine option is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which really ramps up the ride with 250 horsepower. The eco-friendly hybrid engine only loses 50 horses, while the plug-in version does not differ much in its performance numbers. 

The SUV has an intriguing amount of standard driver-assistance features. These driver-assists are a part of the brand’s Co-Pilot 360 bundle and include automatic emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), a blind-spot detection system, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Some exciting leisures include an 8-inch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are present on all trims with the exception of the base S. Other standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, cloth seats, front bucket seats, a 6-speaker stereo, and Sync infotainment with Bluetooth, voice recognition, and in-vehicle Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices. There are also some exciting packages worth looking into, like the Technology Package for those who prioritize the best interior experience, or Class II Trailer Tow Package for off-road enthusiasts.

The Escape also has a design that is more carlike than SUV like with its rounded shape, and whether or not that is appealing comes down to a person’s purchase.

Final Suggestion

The 2021 Ford Escape has the advantage of providing hybrid engines, a great list of safety features, and even luggage space. However, the 2021 Equinox provides an overall better experience in its cabin with its stylish features and entertainment systems. On top of this, Equinox’s bigger and more aggressive design is easier to welcome than its competitor and also has a lower starting price. It is for this reason that the Equinox SUV is a more favorable choice for most car buyers.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox provides a lot of bang for your buck with its standard safety system, 3,500 towing capacity, standard entertainment features, and overall roominess. Those who are interested in this vehicle should take an online stroll at Miami Lakes Automall, we side a wide selection of Chevrolet vehicles like the Equinox and other SUVs.

The 2021 Chevrolet Trax Finally Spices Things Up With Its New Engine

 

The subcompact Chevrolet Trax was first introduced to us in 2015 and quickly warmed the hearts of SUV lovers, and since then it’s become one of the brand’s most popular cars. This crossover also shares platform space with the fan-favorite Buick Encore. The Trax received a significant styling change in 2017, gaining much inspiration from the automaker’s Malibu car. However, one feature that hasn’t changed is the Trax’s 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. As a matter of fact, Chevy hasn’t changed its engine since it’s first debut, so it’s safe to say that the 139-horsepowered machine is considered pretty ancient in automotive years. While its performance is considered decent enough, it needs a little extra pep in its step in order to continue competing well, and it appears that Chevrolet agrees.

GM Authority states that the 2021 Chevy Trax will finally ditch the 1.4-liter turbo and replace it with a spanking new version of the engine with the same displacement.

This new turbo, dubbed LE2, is not only more current but far more energetic and powerful than before with 152 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. It’s worth noting, however, that loyal followers of the brand might be familiar with this engine, as it used to power the Cruze car (which is now discontinued), where it was geared with an automatic start/stop system. Additionally, there have been some reports that claim that the 2021 Trax will not have this function, but Chevrolet has not yet released specific details.

Taking into account the age of the Trax, and the introduction of its big brother, the 2021 Trailblazer,  one might not have expected the company to have vested much interest in a new engine. This tactic seems even more perplexing since it appears that these crossovers will be in competition with one another. On the other hand, it could be a genius idea, since these crossovers would cater to a different type of audience.

Some car sites like Car Buzz have made the argument that based on market research, the subcompact crossover segment is presently splitting into two separate groups, one being buyers who are looking for something more wallet-friendly as opposed to those who prioritize luxury.  The Trax seems best suited to budget-focused groups, especially since it has a starting price of $21,300, (plus destination fee). The company’s rationale might be that both models have different advantages for different buyers, therefore attracting more customers.

The latest Trax doesn’t need to pay much attention to the Trailblazer anyway because it’s real competition is the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Kicks. Meanwhile, the Trailblazer’s will fight to the death with its rivals, the Jeep Renegade and Toyota CH-R.
