2017 Chevy Bolt EV: You’ll look great in this space-age car of tomorrow

I will say this, I was impressed by how controlled both the acceleration and braking on the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV are. If you put the car in ‘L’ instead of ‘D’rive, you can cruise around town and mostly never…

The 2018 Chevy Equinox is a big-time swallower

Compact vehicles are typically made for folks who will never have reason to shop at any store that caters to the vertically or horizontally challenged set. The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a big-time swallower; it has all of the…

The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is a good thing

Chevy’s practical midsized 2016 Malibu Hybrid is hotter, more upscale and has the mouthwatering must-haves that a family would want in a sedan–reliability, comfort, eye-catching looks, peppy performance, cavernous innards and penny-pinching fuel savings at the pumps. The Malibu has…

2016 Chevrolet Cruze: It’s no cruise missile but not your mema’s Nova either

“Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet!” It was a great jingle that cemented the association of the Chevrolet brand with the USA. Interestingly enough, outside of our borders the Cruze has rocketed to the top of the sales charts, knocking its…

2016 Chevrolet Colorado: The Undiesel

Compact pickups have come a long way since the days of the Lil’ Hustler. You remember the Lil’ Hustler –the compact Datsun pickup which, along with the Toyota Hilux, created the market for compact pickups back in the 60s, to the…
