See Why The Chevrolet LUV Was The Compact Truck Of Choice In 1981

Although it was little more than an Isuzu wearing a bowtie, Chevrolet wasn't deterred from making this vintage dealer promotional video to explain all the great features of "their" newly designed compact pickup. » 4/29/12 4:00pm 4/29/12 4:00pm

Diesel Chevrolet LUV Cruising Around Detroit Suburbs

We spotted a manufacturer-plated Chevrolet LUV pickup cruising around town a month ago on our way to our brother's graduation from Oakland University, but didn't think much of it because frankly, a re-badged Isuzu D-MAX (or Chevy Colorado depending on how you look at it) doesn't really get us going. That is until we… » 7/08/08 1:20pm 7/08/08 1:20pm

Geneva Showcase: EDAG LUV

Egad! Ok, that's the last time we use that joke in a post about German engineering and design firm EDAG, and only because it was a request. But the Mercedes GL-based LUV the company's devised is no laughing matter. It takes itself very seriously, what with Brabus-tuned motor and more teak than in a thousand… » 3/07/07 4:43pm 3/07/07 4:43pm

EDAG Strikes Again: The LUV Land Yacht Concept

German engineering and design firm EDAG says it's come up with a modular approach to building niche vehicle derivatives. That means we may be seeing more coachbuilding products from the boys and girls of Fulda. To showcase what it can do, the company's worked up a show car it's calling LUV, a luxury-tweaked Honda… » 3/01/07 6:32am 3/01/07 6:32am

Epic LUVliness - Mickey Thompson Tuned Baja Runner

Oh Baja LUV, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways: One, for the eleven inches of suspension travel. Two, for the six hundred horsepower aluminum 454 powering your frenzied travels. Three, for the holy-crap-this-is-batship-crazy nature of your existence. Yes, in 1975 Mickey Thompson and son Danny thought it right… » 2/01/07 2:00pm 2/01/07 2:00pm

No LUV? A Jalopnik Oversight Corrected.

There are just some things taken for granted in life; the sky is blue, water is wet, common sense is uncommon, and Jalopnik exploits quirky, out of production transportation like a Chinese twelve year old. When it was discovered that the most attention paid to Chevrolet's easily loveable LUV was Loverman's outrage… » 2/01/07 1:00pm 2/01/07 1:00pm

LUV That Pickup: Edag Prepares Truckish Concept for Geneva

We're plumb tuckered with Egad/Edag wordplay, so this one comes to you from our serious place. German design and engineering house Edag plans to show off a new concept truck at the Geneva show, dubbed LUV. But this concept is no Isuzu-built compact Chevrolet pickup from the 1970s; it's a maritime-themed hauler with a… » 1/24/07 12:05pm 1/24/07 12:05pm

As If You Hadn't Seen It: Hyundai Reveals Veracruz Crossover

Hyundai's released more shots of its Veracruz LUV (for those playing along at home, that's a CUV with leather seats). All pwning aside, the Veracruz looks like a contender in the luxury realm, with headlight washers, LED taillights, and park-assist system. Watchers expect Hyundai's 3.8-liter V6 to be offered along… » 10/16/06 9:32am 10/16/06 9:32am
