Official Chevrolet SS reveals set for this weekend

While the sports car and musclecar fan in me yearns for a two door coupe with lots of horsepower and good handling, the practical side of me knows that as an adult with kids I really need four doors. There are several sports cars out there that have four-doors, but more is always better.

Chevrolet is set to unveil its new SS this weekend and we know will be a rear-wheel drive sports sedan. Considering Chevrolet and the Australian company Holden are siblings and Holden just unveiled the Commodore SS V, odds are this slick orange Australian muscle car will be the Chevrolet SS.

Details are scant on the Chevrolet SS and the Holden SS V at this point. Other than these photographs we don't really know anything about vehicle. What size engine the vehicle we use remains unknown but with the unveiling of the Chevrolet SS set for this weekend hopefully all of those details will be forthcoming. This appears to be a big car, it would be nice if it came with a V-8 engine. I can certainly see Chevrolet shoehorning the V8 out of the Camaro under the hood.

Sofia Vergara Spotted In Her Mercedes-Benz S Class In New Orleans
Pop open the electronically actuated door of any new Corvette Stingray and the odor of plastic resin greets you. Smelling like a martini made with counterfeit Chinese vodka, the C7 coupe can’t go al fresco quickly enough—via its standard removable roof panel—when it’s been sitting in the sun. Maybe GM needs to install a perfume dispenser like the one in the Mercedes-Benz S-clas ...

GM Issues Recalls For Six New Vehicle Recalls
This probably won’t surprise anyone, but we have a number of racers, track-day junkies, and vintage-car owners on staff, so tow vehicles are highly prized around our office. While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that rig’s better-dressed sibling, the GMC ...

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Spy Photos: Bigger, Sleeker, and without the Camaro Taillights

GM Issues Recalls For Six New Vehicle Recalls
What It Is: The next-generation Chevrolet Malibu mid-size sedan buried under a pile of black tarps. The pictures nevertheless have a tale to tell, starting with the clear indication that the car will grow. More specifically, the car appears to have stretched in the rear door area, which indicates that Chevy is bent on rectifying its rear-seat legroom deficit. It’s been a major sore spot for buyers since the Malibu was placed on the shorter version of GM’s Epsilon platform back in 2013. ...

The Hearing Health Foundation Presents A Summer Soiree, A Benefit To Help Find A Cure For Hearing Loss And Tinnitus And Honoring Regal Entertainment Group
“Taking the top off and putting it back on is so easy. Definitely a one-person, under-five-minute job.” — Jennifer Harrington, Copy Editor Like so many Vettes before it, the C7 Stingray coupe’s central roof panel can be removed and stowed beneath the glass rear hatch. Luckily, Ann Arbor’s so-far-mild summer has given us plenty of opportunity for topless motoring in our long-term Corvette Stingray Z51 coupe. But just how easy is it to get that lid off? As Harrington st ...
