  1. We're on a road trip! Today, Friday, & Saturday we're out on in the mid-west traveling from Minneapolis to Salt Lake in a 2016 Camaro SS. Why are we doing this? As part of Chevrolet's Find New Roads Trip. The 2016 Camaro is visiting all 48 lower contiguous states in the US. We just started off on our leg. We're driving on I-35 down through Iowa, west through Nebraska and Colorado, over the Rockies and then finally a jaunt north to Salt Lake. In all, we'll travel over 1,400 miles. This will be crazy! Here's the car we're driving and how it's configured. We'll post a ton of photos in this thread over the next three days. Stay tuned.

  8. Words & Photos by: Zane Merva & Josh Merva Editors, GM-Trucks.com 10/31/2014 Welcome to the third and final part of our week long 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Live Review. We hope you've enjoyed the photos and impressions we've shared so far. Today we will share our impressions about how well the 2015 Colorado drives, how well it tows, what fuel economy the 3.6L engine can get, and if we could live with it on a daily basis. If you have not read our previous two parts to this Live Review, consider giving them a look! Part One: Introduction to our review and this 2015 Chevy Colorado Part Two: A look at the interior options, features, and comfort in the 2015 Colorado Crew cab Our Colorado came equipped with the larger and more powerful 3.6L V6 engine. It is rated at 305-horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine you'll find in the Equinox and Camaro, although the tuning has been altered to move to the torque curve lower in the RPM range. This 3.6L has a good punch of low end torque, which is much needed for a truck. The optional 2.5L I4 engine that we experienced during our First Drive review isn't as peppy as the V6 but offers an economical option for someone who won't tow or haul very much. The inline four-cylinder produces 200-horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. While it doesn't sound like a lot, this nearly matches the output of a late 90's 4.3L V6! Chevy claims the mid-size Colorado can do much of what a full-size Silverado can. So we hooked up a trailer and gave this pickup a small workout. With a light 1,000lb load, we barely knew the trailer was behind us. Because of its smaller size, tight maneuvers and backing up with a trailer are easier than with a full-size. Our Colorado came with the "Trailering Equipment Package." Chevy includes an integrated hitch receiver and a 4-pin/7-pin electrical connection. For the price of $250, it seems well worth it. These side mirrors are sleek and low on wind noise but not so great for towing. They don't extend far enough to give a great view of what's behind you while pulling a large trailer. However, for every day use, we've got no complaints and appreciate the blind spot areas. Colorado's four-wheel Duralife disc-brakes make a noticeable difference. Our 2011 Sierra's brakes don't feel nearly as responsive and solid as this. During our week of driving we saw a wide range of fuel economy, depending on what we were doing. In the city and while towing we averaged around 18 miles to the gallon. On the highway and lonely urban roads we able to achieve nearly 28 miles to the gallon! Our 4X4 Colorado was at home off the beaten path. With a minimum of 8.1-inches of ground clearance, this pickup will take you deep down the local trail but probably won't do well crawling rocks. We would imagine the Colorado would do well in the snow. This truck also does well in urban and city roads. A tight turning radius and smaller footprint give the Colorado a leg up over the less maneuverable full-size Silverado. Parking, tight corners, and narrow roads are all much less stressful. With a comfortable, almost crossover like ride, we wouldn't think twice about using the Colorado as a daily driver and a weekend warrior. The communicative steering impressed us. Chevy engineers tuned the Colorado to drive with a level of responsiveness we're not used to in a truck. The rear end never felt light and we were never bounced around. The 4X4 system in the Colorado is has three options- 2WD, 4WD High and 4WD Low. It engaged cleanly, smoothly, and didn't change the way the Colorado drove. Even in two-wheel-drive, the Colorado's traction control handled more than we expected and engaged smoothly. Final Thoughts Every day we drove the 2015 Colorado we grew to love it even more. A slightly smaller pickup that has nearly all the capacity of a full-size is an idea waiting to be executed well for a long time. Chevy has done it with the mid-size Colorado. Our time with this long wheel base crew cab excited us even more about the future prospects of a Duramax Diesel as an available engine next year. GM's 8-speed transmission will also likely end up in the Colorado sooner or later. While the Colorado offers nearly all of the size and capability of the Silverado, that means it also comes at nearly all of the price. Our well optioned example came at a stiff $38,870. For nearly $40,000 we wish some aspects of the Colorado, such as the hard plastic dash, were made to feel more premium. On the other hand, we were impressed at how well the Colorado drove and handled. If you are in the market for a truck but don't plan on loading it to capacity every time you leave the house, you might be surprised how well the Colorado will suit you.

  15. Look what just showed up at the office! A new 2014 GMC Sierra Crew Cab. It's a highly-optioned SLT trim with 4X4 and the Z71 package. It also has a lot of the premium goodies like lane departure warning and the Bose sound system. We get to keep it until next Friday. So, that means it's time to do a Live Review, similar to when we drove the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado in August. Here's the window sticker. This particular Sierra has an MSRP of $50,185. and a quick shot of the interior Many more photos and pictures to come.
  16. The day has arrived. We are excited to be among the first non-GM persons to drive the next generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray...aka the C7. I'm live in Monterey, CA and will be posting photos and impressions most of today in this thread. Things will get started around 8:30am pacific/ 11:30 am eastern. Stay tuned and refresh often!
  17. Since the new 2014 K2-based trucks were announced last December, we've been anxiously waiting to drive one on our home turf. Over the next few days, we're excited to announce that we will have the chance to do just that. We're currently sporting a 2014 Silverado LT Crew Cab in our driveway, on loan from Chevrolet. Instead of driving it for a week and then sharing our thoughts with you afterwards, we're going to use this thread to let you take part in the process. We're going to call it a "Live Review"... and as our first try at this, we'll be sorta making it up as we go along. Side by side next to Project Sierra. We'll be doing a lot of comparisons between the two. and we've already completed the "does a 1/2 keg of beer fit in the back of a crew cab?" test.As you can see, it passed. We're interested in all of your thoughts and requests. What do you want to know? We've got our thoughts, comparisons, photos, and maybe a video or two planned over the next week. Stay tuned! We'll still have a more formal review after this is all done but sharing the process with you guys will be much more fun.
  18. We are excited to announce that our next Live Post will take place on August 12th and 13th when we drive the all-new, seventh-generation, Corvette Stingray. Mark your calendars and follow this thread for updates. I'm hoping this will be our most extensive "Live Post" to date. As we get closer to the middle of August I'll have more information to share about the conditions I will drive the car in.
  19. Good day everyone! Hello from Texas, where I am preparing for my first chance to drive the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, tomorrow, May 9th. Tonight, I am scheduled to get a walk around of the new Silverado and will chat with engineers and designers about the new truck. Tomorrow, I will have most of the day to drive and experience the new Silverado. My plans are to update this thread over tonight and tomorrow with photos and interesting information that I find out during my trip. I hope to update things quite a bit but internet connection access and the temperament of my phone will play a part in how many updates I will be able to provide. Tonight's walk around begins around 8pm eastern and tomorrow's drive starts around 10am eastern. I hope you can all enjoy and I can provide some additional insight to the 2014 Silverado to the group.
  20. Good Sunday evening everyone! I am live in Detroit, about to attend a press-only unveiling of the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The program will officially get underway at 7pm but we'll start posting stuff now! Watch the unveiling LIVE right here:
