See The Bones Of The 2020 Corvette In This Sweet Cutaway

There’s only so much you can talk about a car in theory before you need to see things in cutaway or exploded view. Thankfully, the Chevy team brought a cutaway model of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette at the official launch last week and we got to take a closer look.

Please Enjoy Listening To The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette's V8 Roar

Our first drive review of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is up (which you should definitely go and read if you haven’t already ). “Great, but what does it sound like?” you may be wondering. Fear not, we’ve got you covered.

The Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Started Life As This Freaky Holden Ute

The Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Started Life As This Freaky Holden Ute

The one pressing question I had during the official launch of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette had to do with time. The car is new for 2020, but it has been talked about since at least 1960. When exactly was the project finally green-lit? When could the people involved finally, emotionally invest in turning myth to reality?

Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place.

I can’t think of a car that has been more hyped, argued, and picked apart than the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. The C8 Corvette. The mid-engined one. After 60 years of waiting, I sort of expected it to emit a faint glow, perhaps shoot rainbows from its tailpipes. There will be time later for the think pieces and the philosophical...

This Is What Happens When You Take Risks, GM

This Is What Happens When You Take Risks, GM

Production started on the 2020 Corvette today, according to Chevy, following a strike-related delay and the need to finish the last 2019 Corvettes and retool the factory. GM expects to make around 40,000 new ‘Vettes this year, all of which are sold out, the company claimed. There’s also that new electric Hummer, which will change how we think about electric SUVs. See what happens when you...

Your Ridiculously Awesome Chevelle SS Wallpapers Are Here

Your Ridiculously Awesome Chevelle SS Wallpapers Are Here

I love the Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Sure, the Camaro gets the limelight most of the time, but I’ve always felt that if I’m going to drive a muscle car, I’d want one that’s a little bigger. You know, so there’s room for all my friends. Which I have. I promise.

And this particular car is the kind of spec I’d go for, too. A 1967 car done in black over a black interior with black steelies and...

Please Leave The Corvette Alone

Please Leave The Corvette Alone

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is having the impact we all feared, and now some people with bad ideas are already assuming General Motors will want to do something as stupid as take a legacy performance model and turn it into something fundamentally unrecognizable with the Chevy Corvette.

GM Recalls More Than 550,000 Trucks Over Potential For Seat-Belt Systems To Cause Fires

GM Recalls More Than 550,000 Trucks Over Potential For Seat-Belt Systems To Cause Fires

Most recalls through the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are for problems that aren’t great but sound rather normal, like rollaway risk , airbag issues , or faulty builds . But a new, nearly 560,000-truck General Motors recall sounds like something out of a Mad Lib: Seat belts in the affected vehicles could, in the right conditions, end up causing a fire.

Yes, seat belts....

Chevrolet Somehow Makes One (1) Electric Pickup Truck

Chevrolet Somehow Makes One (1) Electric Pickup Truck

Chevy, a company that does not sell an all-electric mass-produced pickup truck despite being literally the best-prepared company on earth to do so, finally made one. Literally just one.

The vehicle is called the E-10 Concept, and its stated goal is that it “electrifies [the] hot rodding world,” according to its press release. This, clearly, is some kind of joke. Chevrolet, the company that...

Stephen Strasburg Also Won A C8 Corvette But He'll Have To Wait To Drive It

Stephen Strasburg Also Won A C8 Corvette But He'll Have To Wait To Drive It

Chevrolet gave a new C8 Corvette to the World Series’ most valuable player this year, which happened to be Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg. It’s the first-ever mid-engine Corvette and also the first-ever Nationals win in the World Series, so it fits well. But Strasburg won’t get the car right away.

Strasburg won the car as part of the MVP award, with one marched out on the...

Chevrolet Once Made A Depressing Film That Blamed Their Own Workers For Them Getting Their Asses Kicked By Imports

Chevrolet Once Made A Depressing Film That Blamed Their Own Workers For Them Getting Their Asses Kicked By Imports

Everything about this (I think) 1972 Chevrolet internal corporate film is depressing and weird. The background music sounds like the band from a forgotten Village beatnik bar at 3 am, and the narrator sounds like Frank Sinatra half-heartedly laying into you for never picking up a check. It’s basically 15 minutes of GM pissing and moaning about how many imports are selling in America, and how...

GM Pauses Production Of Contentious Mexico-Made Chevy Blazer

General Motors’ decision to build the new Chevy Blazer in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico was highly controversial. The company has taken fire from union representatives, politicians and consumers alike for starting Blazer production in Mexico after shutting down U.S. plants and laying off workers. Now, the plant that’s been a sticking point for the United Auto Workers as it fights to protect union jobs...

The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Has Poor Forward Visibility: Data

The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Has Poor Forward Visibility: Data

When the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette moved its engine to sit behind the driver, I thought for sure its visibility would improve over the front-engine C7's. The hood’s shorter and doesn’t need to accommodate an engine, for crying out loud. But that’s apparently not the case, according to some very thoroughly gathered data.

Visibility out of a car is a big deal. You need to be able to...

Let’s get straight to the most off-road capable of Colorado variants, the ZR2 shown above. It’s got a new face, with “flow-through” Chevrolet...

Dead: Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid, Which Was A Thing? I Didn't Know That

Two bits of news today you may not have know about: there is a Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid, and also, the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid is dead.

Pour one out for the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid! Even if you didn’t know it existed until right now, which is entirely fair.

The news of its premature (?) demise comes to us from our friends at Green Car Reports, which got confirmation from General Motors that...

The 2022 C8 Corvette Z06 Might Be An 800-HP Twin Turbo Monster: Report

Less than a month after the base-spec C8 Corvette was shown to the public, rumors of what the hotter C8s will be like are already percolating.

Automobile is reporting that the C8 Corvette Z06 is due as a 2022 model and could feature a version of Cadillac’s Blackwing hot V twin-turbo V8 making upwards of 800 horsepower and perhaps more than 700 lb-ft of torque. That engine won’t wear the...

Chevrolet Is Betting Its EV Future On This Electric Compact Crossover

Chevrolet Is Betting Its EV Future On This Electric Compact Crossover

As part of a declaration of intent to the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Chevrolet released these images of the Menlo model ahead of its official unveiling early next month. Menlo is the Chinese-market name for the Bolt-based electric compact crossover, which will likely be called Bolt EUV here in the U.S. market. To be quite honest, I like the Menlo name a lot...
