2019 Corvette ZR1 Pushes the Boundaries
With an expected release sometime between spring and summer of 2018, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 promises to deliver more strength and speed than ever before. Its hand-assembled supercharged V8 engine outputs 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque to attain a top speed of 212 mph. For further customization, Chevy offers a convertible style and Sebring Orange Design Package for added appeal.
2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition Arrives
Due to arrive in the first quarter of 2018, the Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels version promises to spice up the model’s lineup with its orange vibe and contrasting racing stripes. Die-hard Hot Wheels fans will enjoy a nostalgic flashback when they sit behind the wheel of this Camaro. Choose convertible or coupe styles, depending on your whim.
Class 4 and 5 Trucks Renamed as Silverado 4500 and 5500
Chevrolet’s current Class 4 and Class 5 trucks get a new name in 2018: the Silverado 4500 and Silverado 5500. Crew Cab and Regular Cab versions will be available as well as 4×2 and 4×4 configurations. Duramax diesel and Allison transmission pairings will lend their performance prowess to this fresh offering that’s set to arrive during the latter part of 2018.
The Continued Reign of the Bolt
Not only has Chevrolet triggered a surge of autonomous Bolts in New York City, but it plans on initiating an Autonomous Ride-Sharing Service and expanding it to multiple cities by 2019. So, for 2018, you can expect to see even more self-driving Bolt models on the streets, especially if you live in major urban cities. Furthermore, considering the Chevy Bolt’s healthy production sales in 2017, the model promises to keep thriving as we move into a new year.
