2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel followup review: Yes, it’s got a diesel

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel followup review: Yes, it’s got a diesel

“Is that a diesel,” the driver asked us, much like the Dodge Ram pickups advertisements had ab out the Hemi. Except our questioner said, “I was walking out to my truck and I heard it running and I thought it must be.” We had just begun our followup drive with the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo […]

Chevrolet’s SS – Something Special: Sporty and Sublime

Chevrolet’s SS – Something Special: Sporty and Sublime

Without benefit of CarBuzzard’s crack research staff (the 10-member team is on loan to Ken Burns) we can make but an educated guess; apparently,  Chevrolet’s first use of the ‘SS’ moniker was on the Corvette SS. This was a race car exercise devised by Chevy’s general manager, Ed Cole, and Zora Arkus-Duntov (inventor of the hyphenated […]

2014 Chevrolet SS proves a family sedan can be one cool stealthy performance car

2014 Chevrolet SS proves a family sedan can be one cool stealthy performance car

Not since the mid-1990s have we seen a rear-wheel drive performance car drive out of the Chevrolet brand. At one time the SS badge on a Chevrolet meant the car had the muscle to impress in the stop light drags. There was also a time when the SS badge became a bit tarnished. Who can […]

Chevrolet Announces Camaro Z/28 Pricing, Pigs Fly and Hell Freezes Over

Chevrolet Announces Camaro Z/28 Pricing, Pigs Fly and Hell Freezes Over

In what is apparently a slow time in the Car News biz, Chevrolet announced today the long-awaited (or much anticipated?) pricing of its 2014 Z/28 Camaro. And while – at first blush – a suggest retail of $75K might seem on the high/who-do-they-think-they-are? side, know that the almost EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLAR figure includes the vehicle’s […]

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT modifed with Chevy parts: Semi-hot

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT modifed with Chevy parts: Semi-hot

Chevrolet tells us that, according to their data, about 12 percent of Chevrolet Sonic buyers will “personalize” their cars, and by that they mean more than hanging a unicorn from the rearview mirror or putting a university decal in the back window. They mean special wheels, trim kits and fog lamps, maybe an exhaust system […]

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel First Drive review: Numb…and number

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel First Drive review: Numb…and number

    Among the many success stories written in the aftermath of GM’s financial implosion, arguably the biggest surprise – to at least this interested observer – is the roaring success of Chevrolet’s Cruze subcompact. In YOD (Year of Detroit) 2013 the small Chevy is almost ubiquitous. And that ubiquity looks to continue into 2014 […]

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 First Move Review: The Motherload

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 First Move Review: The Motherload

When we last spoke, we were singing – at the top of our constricted lungs – the praises of Dodge’s Grand Caravan. Appropriated for our first residential move in some fifteen years – which is roughly 750 shopping days if you assume (conservatively) one shopping day per week – we were blown away by the […]

The new-last-year 2014 Chevrolet Malibu gets a new face and new engine

The new-last-year 2014 Chevrolet Malibu gets a new face and new engine

Back in the day, every model year meant a new face, or even a whole new body, making it easier to tell one model year to the next. It’s not that way now, where year two of a new model usually means nothing more than a new color. Chevrolet did something more like the good […]
