For about a year now, General Motors has been boasting the advantages of its steel-bodied Chevrolet Silverado over the aluminum-bodied Ford F-150 in TV ads. Now a new set of “aluminum versus steel” ads is here, purporting to show the F-150's bed cracking under pressure. GM swears the ads aren’t an attack on aluminum…
Like most of you, I’m not sure Christmas is still a holiday that even gets celebrated in America! I tend to get most of my information from disposable coffee cups, and those seem to suggest an outright hostility to the holiday, what with all their color and all. And now I find that General Motors has no plans for a…
The Chevy Silverado “Bone Collector” sounds intense but actually seems remarkably practical. I dig what a few tubes of steel does for the look and I wish GM would offer this bed drawer system as a factory option, like, yesterday.
More shots of the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado were posted yesterday from the State Fair of Texas, along with confirmation that the truck will run apps straight off your phone through Apple or Android’s car connectivity programs.
The Silverado is a solid working-man’s truck. What do you need to know before you buy a Chevrolet Silverado? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Cars and trucks are often advertised at their starting price but once you select the configuration that fits you it can add thousands to the price. You may be wondering whether a cheap truck has an actual seat or possibly a wooden stool. I recently assisted in the purchase of a truck that actually has a pretty good…
When it comes to used vehicles, I’ve always said “mileage doesn’t matter” as long as the car’s got good service history and a reputable seller. Here’s a chance to test that theory: GM tuner Callaway is selling development cars, including this near-perfect supercharged Corvette for less than the price of its upgrades.
More often than not, us members of the automotive media are a bunch of spoiled twats. We get to drive a wide variety of vehicles that we’ll likely never be able to afford, and all the automakers want in return are decent pictures (if that) and some kind words. Of course, in order to sweeten us up and get us as in-love…
So, you bought a race car. Congratulations! Let me guess: you only have a few bars of eye-searingly bright LEDs on the front instead of your OEM headlamps, and now you can't drive it on public roads anymore without getting stabbed in traffic? Gotcha. We at Black Flag are here to help.
Badges are the weirdest things ever, you can go full old-GM with them and don't distinguish them at all apart from changing badges or you can do what VW does and make a single platform that can be changed enough to compete in many segments and price brackets. A third option, taken by these two is just not making any…
Here's some data to support the rhetoric we all keep repeating: "Holy crap, pickup trucks are insanely expensive." TrueCar has calculated which were the most popular $50K+ vehicles and versions of the Ford F-Series, Ram, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra are all in the top ten.
So, you bought a race car. Congratulations! Let me guess: you tossed out the blinker stalks to save weight, and now you can't drive it on public roads anymore? Gotcha. We at Black Flag are here to help.
We've pretty much pegged "bro trucks" as pickups with a lotta bling and a lotta lift, generally designated for peacocking rather than trail running. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If you love that look or hate it, you've got to admit this Silverado pretty much wins it.
Free yourself from the antiquated idea of Ford and Chevrolet running the pickup truck show— for the first time since the 90's Ram has officially passed the Chevy Silverado in sales as of last month.
Due to hydraulic fracturing bringing the price of natural gas down, GM is launching a line of Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickups that can run CNG to pass the savings on to YOOOUUU!
While most of the other journalists at GM's Heavy Duty truck drive this week were busy sucking down caesar salad and fiddling with cruise controls, I was crushing rocks and roosting photographers in a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Heavy Duty Z71.
AP and pretty much everyone else covering trucks on the internet is reporting that General Motors has just issued a recall on 370,000 2014 Silverado and Sierras sold in North America due to fires erupting from an overheated exhaust system.
GM's 2014 1500 pickups earned the highest possible "overall" crash rating of five stars from the NHTSA, but that doesn't mean their full-size lineup is as safe as it could be.
