Back in 1990, General Motors stuck a 7.4-liter V8 into a 1500 chassis Chevy pickup and created an icon. The 454 SS was little more than black paint, a red logo on the side and dual exhausts rumbling out the back, but it was great in a way that I can’t imagine being reproduced today.
Today at a press event hosted at the Texas Motor Speedway for Chevy Truck’s 100th anniversary, Chevy surprised attendees by flying in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado by helicopter and lowering it onto the stage. Our own Bradley Brownell was in the crowd and managed to get a few pics of the newest Silverado generation.…
It’s Day 593 into the war. Or Day 840. Or 1,383. You can’t keep track anymore. And it’s not really your job to, anyways. You’re just the scout. The runner. You simply complete the missions until there aren’t any more to complete. You aren’t paid to ask questions.
Let’s face it: the great American V8 engine note is practically our other national anthem. Here’s a classic 1981 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up that’s singing the song of our people and roasting red and blue tires into smoke.
A class-action lawsuit filed on Thursday accuses General Motors of installing defeat devices in more than 700,000 trucks to beat emissions tests in the U.S., the latest in a string of diesel cheating allegations against automakers.
First generation Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras, built between model years 1999 and 2007, are plagued with a terrible disease: their tailgate handle linkages are made of the cheapest plastic known to humankind, and as a result, thousands of these trucks drive around with gaping holes in their rear ends. It’s…
Truck makers are deeply entrenched in a step-battle the likes of which you haven’t seen since Stomp The Yard. (Yes, I am extremely proud of that one, thanks for asking.) Here’s a look at General Motors’ latest patent for a deployable tailgate-integrated step. Prepare your mind for some super advanced Formula One-style…
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…
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.
In 2015 luxury pickup trucks are mainstays of the American auto industry. Ford, Ram, and Chevrolet each put their own spin on “capable and comfortable” and frankly they’re all pretty impressive. The GMC Sierra Denali isn’t the fanciest of the field, but it is the original. And it’s still the best.
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.
So after a whole ad campaign crapping on Ford’s aluminum F-150, sources say GM’s planning “significant model changes” on the Chevy Silverado, Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade for 2018 including more use of aluminum and lightweight steel. You can’t make this stuff up.
Any guesses on the top reason why people buy GMC trucks? According to GM it’s “styling,” so they sure hope you dig the new look of the 2016 GMC Sierra. It’s a mild update but don’t worry, they did manage to get more angles in that chiseled face.
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…
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade doesn't have an EXT pickup truck variant, but the hoonigans over at Monster Energy have gone ahead and slapped the Daddy Caddy's face on a full-size Chevy pickup to make their own. It's kind of awesome.
I can't make any more sense of this speculate than Whitesnake lyrics, but it sure looks like these boys were in it to win it at Daisy Duke's Truck Show. I ain't wasting no more time: watch some trucks try to tear each other apart.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150. Here's what happened: Ford flew me to Dallas, or possibly San Antonio, for an evening of brisket, and pie, and musicians wearing blue jeans. At some point, there was also a pickup truck.
Hennessey's HPE650 supercharger kit for GM's 6.2 V8 claims 665 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 658 lb-ft @ 4,200 rpm at the crank. Dyno testing says that translates to 545 horsepower at the wheels, but the real story is the boosted engine's glorious wail.
Put the burnt orange flags away. Rip off the bumper stickers. You won't need those grille-mounted horns anymore. This is the Texas Longhorns tailgating vehicle that you need in your life.
