    SUVs are moving upmarket as buyers in search of family haulers grab 7 and 8-passenger crossovers. However, Chevy thinks there is an unmet need for a basic, but still very capable full-sized SUV. That is why for 2018 there is the Tahoe Custom starting at under $45K.

    Chevy's new 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racer is a great-looking racecar. The road-going ZL1 is an amazing car and Chevy was wise to pay it homage in the racecar.

    The GM-Trucks.com team was fortunate to find some seat time in a new, 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid this month. General Motors has cut its media fleet for 2017 and the Malibu was the only GM car we’ve driven in recent memory. Simply put, it blew us away.

    Back when electronic, or electric, steering replaced hydraulic assist, many drivers worried that if the electric motor that adds the power steering input was suddenly disabled the vehicle would lose control. Manufacturers poo-pood safety concerns, calling the new systems "fail-safe." Today, GM has announced a huge recall of about three-quarters of a million 2014 model year Silverado and SIerra pickups because the electronic steering may fail and the driver may lose steering control, possibly leading to a crash.

    Keeping track of kids has never been easier. Apple phones and most other smart phones have simple apps that can tell the subscriber where the other phones on their plan are at any given time and a summary of where they went. There are also a number of inexpensive devices one can place in a car that work with cell phones to track locations and do other things, like limit the phone's ability to text or use other apps. Cell Control Driver ID is one we have tested and still use in the GM-Trucks.com extended family. Now Chevy has its own app that can tell you where your car is and how it is being used.

    In a just-released comparison done by Pickuptrucks.com, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 has beaten the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. This win was not an easy win for the Colorado. The Tacoma actually won more categories than did the ZR2. The Tacoma was judged to have the better Powertrain, better Acceleration, better Interior, and was judged the better Value. In the Dirt and Sand Running test and in the Off-Road Technology Category the trucks tied.

     

    The Colorado for its part beat the Tacoma in the Suspension, Brakes, and Rock-Crawling categories. Despite the Tacoma winning more categories, Pickuptrucks.com judged the Colorado ZR2 the o...

    Bollinger Motors revealed its electric pickup/SUV Friday. The vehicle is a square-bodied electric drive SUV that looks like a Land Rover or vintage Bronco in many ways. That is far from an insult. That look is loved by many and the Bollinger B1 has a bad-ass back-to-basics look that is hard not to like. Aerodynamics must not matter when no gas is being burned.

  • Guess How Much A New 2017 Bolt EV Costs After Incentives?

    The new Chevy Bolt has two trims. The Base LT starts at $37,450 and the Premier starts at $41,870. However, nobody is going to pay those prices for a Chevy Bolt. The Federal government is using your taxpayer dollars to subsidize the Bolt to the tune of $7,500 in the form of a tax deduction for those buyers who earn enough to take advantage of it, yet earn little enough not to be paying the Alternative Minimum Tax and missing out on deductions beyond what they already use. That does leave a pretty substantial pool of Americans.

    Chevy teased out a bit of price info today. Most notably, that the 2018 Traverse will start at just $30,875 including destination and delivery. Chevy says that the Traverse will come in L, LS, LT, Premier, and a new sporty RS trim as well as the top-of-the line High Country. A Redline package will be available on Premier, with blacked-out and red accents.

     

    We went to the on-line configurator and priced out an AWD High Country Traverse with the optional Iridescent Pearl Tricoat paint, powered universal tablet holder, a year of OnStar Guidance and came up with as price of about $55k. The configurator bails out at the end and won't display a final buy price, but refers the person shopping to a dealer.

     

    The entry price is up about $2K from last year, which started at $2...
