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.

One of the first all-new vehicles revealed at the 2022 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) was the 2023 Chevy Colorado. The 2023 Colorado will be the third generation of the mid-size pickup. It will feature a bolder look along with a more robust performance.

The RST trim will come equipped with a stronger dual motor setup that grants it 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque.

The next big reveal was a new RST trim for the 2023 Chevy Tahoe. This performance edition trim will equip the full-size SUV with a 6.2L V8 engine. The V8 engine will produce 433 horsepower and 467lb-ft torque, more than enough to provide high performance and capability. With this engine, the Tahoe will be able to hit a 0-60 mph time of 6 seconds. The new RST trim will also lower the ride height of the 2023 Chevy Tahoe and add a unique torch-red style.

2024 Chevy Blazer EV & 2024 Chevy Equinox EV

One of the most significant reveals was Chevrolet’s EV lineup. The aforementioned Silverado EV, the all-new Blazer EV, and the Equinox EV were included.

2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Will Have Top Speed of 195 Mph

The top speed for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 has been revealed. According to Chevrolet’s chief engineer Josh Holder, the sports car will have a top speed of 195 mph. While this is not over 200 mph like a previous rumor indicated, this is still an impressive speed. The 2023 Corvette Z06 has been teased for some time now, but order banks have opened up. The high-performance luxury sports car is expected to arrive with a more powerful engine as well as a new look. Those interested in the 2023 Corvette Z06 can browse an online option list to create their perfect sports car. We’ll take a look at the new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 and see what consumers can expect. 

2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 Top Speed Confirmed

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has had its top speed confirmed. According to Chevrolet’s chief engineer Josh Holder, the luxury sports car will have a top speed of 195 mph. This is thanks to the sports car’s new engine which is a 5.5L V8 engine. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2023 Corvette Z06 offers 670 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet has upgraded this engine to provide high performance. It boasts a flat-plane crank design with a 5.56 drive ratio for increased acceleration. The 5.5L also allows drivers to hit a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds. 

The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 will come available with a Z07 performance package. This package will increase the aerodynamics of the sports car by equipping it with spring and anti-roll bar rates. The Z07 package will also add a huge rear wing spoiler. This will add about 734 pounds of downforce thus increasing the Corvette’s overall performance.

Inside the 2023 Corvette Z06, owners can expect a fighter jet-inspired cockpit that gives drivers a heightened feeling of control. With customizable seats and a raced-designed steering wheel, owners will have full access to an array of driver assist features. This includes a performance data recorder, or PDR, that allows drivers to capture their acceleration speed, braking, and gear choices. For entertainment, the high-performance sports car offers a 12-inch touchscreen system with Chevrolet 3 Infotainment. The system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Order banks have already opened for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. The sports car will start at an MSRP of $105,000 (plus destination fee).

What Plans Does Chevrolet Have for the 2023 Chevy Montana?

The 2023 Chevy Montana is almost finished. The unibody compact pickup will soon make its debut though as of now, Chevrolet only has plans to sell it in Brazil. Chevrolet has not commented on whether the 2023 Montana will make its way to the states, but given the recent popularity of compact pickups, the automaker may make the decision to offer it. As of late, Chevrolet has been focused on its EVs like the Chevy Silverado EV and Chevy Colorado EV. Despite the focus on electric vehicles, this has not stopped Chevy from updating its combustion engine lineup. Vehicles like the 2023 Chevy Montana continue to be improved so we’ll take a look at the compact pickup truck and see what consumers can expect.

Will The 2023 Chevy Montana Make It To The U.S?

The 2023 Chevy Montana has almost finished production. The compact pickup truck is slated to be released in Brazil. Currently, there are no plans for Chevrolet to sell the 2023 Montana in the United States, but this could change. Given the popularity of compact pickup trucks like the Ford Maverick, Chevrolet may spend the resources to offer the Chevy Montana in the states. This would require building a new factory in the U.S however due to the Chicken Tax law. This law limits the importation of pickups and cargo vans into the US so it may pose a big hurdle for Chevy.

The 2023 Chevy Montana was recently teased by GM Brazil. The subsidiary showed off the Montana’s interior which features an analog instrument panel and an infotainment display with an 8-inch touchscreen. As for the engine, the compact pickup comes with 8 choices. This includes turbocharged options. The 2023 Montana’s base engine is a turbocharged three-cylinder that’s capable of 130 horsepower. The pickup will also come paired with an automatic transmission. 

If the states do see the 2023 Chevy Montana, it’s likely that Chevrolet will make some adjustments and upgrades to the pickup. This includes increased performance as well as the option for a manual transmission. Since Chevrolet has not made any comment about the Montana coming to the U.S, this remains a far-off hope. Still, unlikelier things have happened so there may be some luck that U.S consumers see the 2023 Chevy Montana in the future.

The 2023 Chevrolet Montana Is Coming To America…We Hope?

2023 Chevy Montana

The 2023 Chevrolet Montana will debut as the first unibody compact pickup truck very soon. Currently, the all-new Montana truck will be sold in Brazil and share platform space, along with a powertrain with the Tracker compact SUV. For the time being, not the Tracker nor the Montana have been announced for the North American market.

That said, given the popularity of small pickups in the last few years, we imagine that there is still a good chance that General Motors (GM) will bring the Montana to the States, as Ford brought the Ranger back for the 2019 model year after it has already been sold globally for several years. By the time it reached the U.S., Ford had outfitted the Ranger truck with safety features for the North American market, but it was still comparable in design and performance to the Ranger sold worldwide.

The 2022 model year also introduced two new compact trucks: the Ford Maverick and the Hyundai Santa Cruz. These small trucks ride on the same platforms as compact SUVs. Regarding the Maverick, it journeys on the Ford Bronco Sport, while the Santa Cruz travels with the Hyundai Tucson. Since their debut, both the Maverick and Santa Cruz have seen strong sales, so it’s not far-fetched to think that GM would like to take advantage of this market demand by releasing the Montana truck in North America.

Various teaser videos have been revealed flaunting the Montana’s interior video for GM’s Brazil subsidiary. These designs appear to have a bit more of a utilitarian design paralleled with the Tracker. The cabin lodges two of the 10.25-inch digital screens in the Tracker. These stretch across the dashboard with a fully-digital instrument and an infotainment system. Meanwhile, the Montana’s setup is more minimalistic, with the pickup involving an analog instrument panel and an infotainment display close to 8 inches.

The Montana truck will have eight powertrains, including various turbocharged options. The base engine is a turbocharged 3-cylinder that musters up 130 horsepower. With such as small output, it’s not too plausible that this engine would make it to the States, but many U.S. truck enthusiasts will likely want the option to have a manual transmission.

So far, there isn’t much known about the Chevy Montana, but we can guess that it won’t be sold in North America before GM sells the Montana on our shores. It will need to establish a factory here to manufacture the pick up, as this will avoid the Chicken Tax of the 1960s (the limitation of importation of pickups and cargo vans into the U.S.).

GM still has not mentioned the 2023 Montana arriving in the States; however, it’s still possible that the company will eventually. On the flip side, with the combination of the capital investments to construct a new factory or modify one to meet North American standards, it may be at least several years before we see it come to fruition.

Chevrolet Scores Above Average In J.D Power 2022 Index Study

In a recent J.D Power Index Study, Chevrolet managed to rank above average compared to its competitors. Operating as an American consumer research company, J.D Power conducts annual surveys to gauge customer satisfaction and buyer behavior. This recent 2022 study focused on vehicle technology and whether customers were satisfied with their brand’s technologies. As of late, Chevrolet has been focused on updating its combustion engine lineup and expanding its all-electric lineup. With new EVs like the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and the 2026 Chevy Colorado EV, Chevy is hoping to offer consumers the latest in technology and driver-assist features. We’ll take a look at the new J.D Power technology index study and see how well Chevy fared overall.

Chevy Ranks Above Average in J.D Power Technology Index Study

Chevrolet recently scored above average in the 2022 J.D Power Index Study. As a leading research company, J.D Power specializes in consumer research and data analytics. The organization recently conducted one of its annual surveys to gauge consumer satisfaction surrounding vehicle technologies. Many automakers including Chevrolet have been improving their vehicles with advanced technologies and driver-assist features. The point of the recent survey was to better understand how automakers implement new technologies into their vehicles as well as how reliable they remain over time. Chevrolet managed to earn a score of 471 which was better than the average brand score of 469. 

J.D Power surveyed close to 84,000 owners for its study. The criteria for participants were those who owned a 2022 model year vehicle for at least 90 days. The organization asked these owners questions about any problems they encountered with any advanced technologies. J.D Power then took this data and assigned scores for each automotive brand. Using ‘PP100’ scores, which stands for problems per owner for every 100 vehicles, J.D power awarded each brand an innovation ranking based on a 1,000-point scale.

Overall, Chevrolet’s above-average score of 471 was due to the automaker’s advanced technologies and driver-assist features. Included in most Chevy vehicles is the Chevy Safety Assist suite which offers owners a host of safety features. These include forward collision alerts, HD surround vision, and adaptive cruise control to name a few. That owners were thoroughly impressed with the technologies available speaks to the brand and its future growth. As Chevy works to offer consumers more EVs, these vehicles will come equipped with advanced technologies and features that make drivers’ lives easier.

2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Recieve Boost in Engine Power

The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be receiving an upgrade to its turbodiesel engine. The half-ton pickup already offers impressive capability, but this upgrade will provide owners with more power to complete their tasks. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy working on its EV lineup. With new electric vehicles coming like the Chevy Silverado EV, Chevy Colorado EV, and Chevy Equinox EV, it’s nice to see the automaker also improving its combustion engine lineup. We’ll take a look at the new performance metrics of the upgraded diesel engine and see what consumers can expect.

2023 Chevy Silverado Turbodiesel Engine Receives Upgrade

The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will now arrive with a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six Duramax diesel engine that’s capable of 305 horsepower and 495lb-ft of torque. This is close to a 10-percent boost in performance from the 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque that was previously offered. These improvements will help those owners who opt for the Duramax turbodiesel engine perform at an even higher level. The new diesel engine will still come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Those interested in the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also have the option of selecting from a turbocharged 2.7L, a 5.3L V8, and a 6.2L V8 engine.

Chevrolet has improved the turbocharged 3.0L Duramax turbodiesel engine by upgrading several of its components. These include new pistons, an improved combustion bowl, and new fuel injectors. All these additions have helped provide the diesel engine with higher performance and better capability. The new Duramax turbodiesel engine will come available with the Custom Trail Boss, LT, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, and High Country trims. About the new turbodiesel engine, Chevrolet’s assistant chief engineer John Barta said,

“These improvements to the popular 3.0-liter Duramax diesel build on the already advanced design of the first-generation engine,” says John Barta. “We often hear customers express their satisfaction with the outstanding fuel economy and smooth, quiet power of the current diesel engine, so we can’t wait for them to experience this advanced engine, made possible by the continued design evolution and advances in engine technologies.”

The All-New 2023 Chevy Colorado Has Been Spotted

The next-generation 2023 Chevy Colorado is almost here. The midsize pickup truck was recently spotted wrapped in camouflage indicating that Chevrolet will be introducing the next-generation Colorado soon. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy updating its lineup and working on its next EV, the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. The automaker, like many others, has been aiming to produce EVs in an effort to offer non-carbon emitting vehicles. Alongside the Chevy Equinox EV is the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV which has been slated to offer 400 miles of battery range. While Chevrolet has been focused on its EVs, it’s clear that its combustion engine lineup remains a priority. We’ll take a look at the new 2023 Chevy Colorado and see what we can learn.

The All-New 2023 Chevy Colorado Is Coming

The 2023 Chevy Colorado was recently spotted wrapped in camouflage. Thankfully, this camouflage was body-hugging so we can actually speculate as to what new changes the mid-size pickup could arrive with. Spy shots of the wrapped pickup were taken from various angles and based on the photos, it seems that the camouflage Colorado was a Z71 model. This stems from the recovery hooks on the front, the off-road tires, and the higher ride height. This trim is a step down from the highest ZR2 trim, but it still offers high performance and capability. 

From the spy shots, it seems that the new 2023 Chevy Colorado has a refreshed grille. The grille appears with a black finish and has a large crossbar that splits it into a dual setup. A polygon design appears at the sides of the grille and leads toward the center. There also looks to be tape over the grille which may be hiding the specific trim badge. Despite this, we can see a forward-facing camera located in the center of the grille.

Looking at the wheels, it seems the black finish is consistent throughout the rest of the pickup’s body. This lends the new Colorado a sporty but aggressive look. We’re not sure what will be underneath the hood, but the 2022 Chevy Silverado currently has a turbocharged 2.7L engine that’s capable of 310 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. We may see something similar in the 2023 Colorado. As for its rear, the mid-size pickup looked to have a revised quarter panel as well as a new tailgate. Chevrolet has not provided any information about the new 2023 Chevy Colorado, but we can expect it to be something fierce and powerful.

Which 2022 Chevy Equinox Trim is Right for You?

There are a plethora of compact crossovers, but one of the most popular is the 2022 Chevy Equinox. Updated for the new model year, the Chevy Equinox offers consumers a stylish and affordable SUV that brings new features to the table. While Chevrolet has been busy working on the all-electric Chevy Equinox EV, those considering the gasoline version still have the choice of a solid compact SUV. The 2022 Chevy Equinox offers four trims, each offering more than the last. We’ll explore each one and see what consumers can expect. 

2022 Chevy Equinox LS

As the base 2022 Chevy Equinox, the LS serves as the most affordable trim that still offers a lot. Each Equinox trim comes equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder engine capable of 170 horsepower and 203lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet did away with the more powerful 2.0L, but for the 2022 model year, the automaker has updated the compact crossover SUV with a new grille, distinctive headlights, and a new front and rear bumper. These updates provide the Equinox with a more modern look that helps it stand out among competitors. 

The LS trim comes with four-wheel drive although all-wheel drive is available. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Inside the SUV, owners will note a stylish interior with modern tech. The LS features a 7-inch touchscreen as well as a six-speaker audio system. It also has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. For safety, the 2022 Chevy Equinox comes with Chevy Safety Assist which includes forward-collision alerts, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and lane-departure warnings. The LS trim starts at an MSRP of $25,800 (plus destination fee).

2022 Chevy Equinox LT 

The second 2022 Chevy Equinox trim is the LT. Starting at an MSRP of $26,900 (plus destination fee), this trim proves to be the most popular trim. The LT is not much more than the LS, but it offers more features. These include a chrome and body-colored exterior as well as additional driver-assist and convenience features. These features come included with the LS Convenience package and consist of satellite radio, power-adjustable seats, a heated steering wheel, and illuminated sun visors. 

Inside the LT trim, owners will enjoy a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, remote engine start, and a power liftgate. The safety suite also gets blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts. There’s also an additional infotainment package which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, an upgraded navigation system, a high-definition backup camera, and a 120-volt power outlet. 

2022 Chevy Equinox RS

The next tier up for the 2022 Chevy Equinox is the RS trim. This trim adds a sporty aesthetic with 19-inch wheels and a black exterior trim. It starts at an MSRP of $30,100 (plus destination fee) and combines the previous trim’s Confidence and Convenience and Infotainment packages. It also adds more like front and rear park assist with LED taillamps, a Bose premium 7-speaker audio system, and heated driver and passenger seats. Inside, owners will note a unique knob shifter, red stitching, and black upholstery. The RS also features a Hit the Road Package which includes roof-rack cross rails/side rails and molded assist steps.

2022 Chevy Equinox Premier

The last and highest level trim offered with the 2022 Chevy Equinox is the Premier. This trim starts at an MSRP of $31,000 (plus destination fee) and offers the most features out of all the trims. It has a higher quality interior cabin with French stitching along with gloss-black trim on the console. The Premier trim also offers the Hit the Road Package but upgrades the  Confidence and Convenience and Infotainment packages. The trim offers 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, a hands-free power liftgate, and body-color door handles with chrome surround.

Inside the Premier trim, owners will enjoy the Chevy Infotainment 3 Plus system which comes with a 7-speaker Bose premium audio system. The compact crossover also features additional safety features like an HD rear vision camera. There’s also adaptive cruise control and a safety alert seat setting that helps identify potential crashes. Whichever trim consumers choose, each proves rather affordable with the latest in driver-assist and convenience features.

Chevy Malibu Rated Best Midsize Car in J.D Power Initial Quality Study

The Chevy Malibu was recently recognized as one of the best midsize cars by J.D Power. Operating as a leader in consumer behavior, J.D Power utilizes consumer insight and analytical data to better understand consumer sentiment. Each year, the company conducts an Initial Quality Study (IQS) which provides automakers and manufacturers with insight into how they can improve their products. Based on the 2022 IQS, the Chevy Malibu was categorized as the highest ranking midsize car. Other Chevy vehicles that earned high ranks included the Chevy Equinox, Chevy Silverado, and Chevy Corvette. We’ll take a look at the results of J.D Power’s IQS and see how Chevy fared overall against its competitors.

Chevy Malibu Highest Ranked Midsize Car

According to J.D Power’s 2022 Initial Quality Study (IQS), the Chevy Malibu was the highest ranked midsize car. As a brand, Chevrolet did well overall with many of its vehicles ranking high in their respective segments. J.D Power conducts its IQS annually by using responses from customers over a 90-day period. The study utilizes a 223-question survey organized into nine separate categories including: infotainment, features, controls, exterior, driving assistance, interior, powertrain, seats, driving experience, and climate. As a leading data analytics company, J.D Power uses this consumer data to help automakers and manufacturers improve their products.

Scores from J.D Power’s IQS are based on how many problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) consumers encounter. The lower the PP100 score, the better the vehicle quality. Based on J.D Power’s 2022 IQS, the overall automotive industry saw an 11% increase in problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). Chevrolet, however, managed to score fairly well compared to its competitors earning a total PP100 score of 147. This score placed the automaker third in the overall IQS.

One of Chevy’s best-performing vehicles was the Chevy Malibu which managed to beat out the Kia K5 as well as the Nissan Altima. Other Chevy vehicles that earned a good score included the Chevy Corvette which managed to place first in the Premium Sport Car category. The Corvette earned a PP100 score of 101 which was the lowest score out of all vehicles studied. Other Chevy vehicles that performed well included the Chevy Tahoe, Silverado, and Equinox. From this year’s IQS, it’s clear that Chevrolet has continued to maintain its overall quality in the face of industry setbacks.
