Chevrolet

Chevy traces its roots back to 1911 when it was established as the Chevrolet Motor Car Company. Seven years later it was merged with General Motors and has been under the GM umbrella ever since. Back in 1919, Alfred Sloan – the CEO of General Motors at the time – had a saying: “a car for every purse and every purpose,” and it was his decision to use the Chevy brand as a mainstream volume leader that would compete against Ford. Over the years, Chevy has expanded into a global manufacturer that serves consumers in most markets, save for a few that includes North Korea, Cuba, and Taiwan.

Alfred Sloan’s slogan still lives through the company today, and that’s why you’ll find no shortage of models to choose from in Chevy’s lineup. The company produces more than 20 consumer vehicles here in the U.S., and that doesn’t include commercial offerings like large fans, heavy-duty pickups, or chassis trucks that can be modified for nearly any industrial purpose. Chevy is considered an entry-level automaker with most offerings being short on luxury and high on value. It does have a few performance offerings like the Camaro and Corvette. Most other models, like the Chevy Malibu or Chevy Impala, for example, are considered affordable family cars.

A Stock Drag Race Between Two Unlikely Muscle Cars Ends With David Beating Goliath

A Stock Drag Race Between Two Unlikely Muscle Cars Ends With David Beating Goliath

This classic muscle drag race between a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS and a 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible proves even the base muscle cars were fast enough

Classic car drag races never get old as we are always curious to see how different versions of 1960s and 1970s muscle cars perform on the drag strip 50 years after their production. This Cars and Zebras drag race is between two unlikely cars. We say that because both the 1967 Dodge Coronet and 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS are relatively base versions so, naturally, we were curious how they would perform over a quarter-mile.

This Custom 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Stepside Will Not See Any Haystacks In Its Bed

A lowered 1956 Chevy 3100 with a 383 stroker V-8 is not your typical work truck

Custom cars are awesome, but what’s even crazier is custom pick-up trucks, especially when they are from the 1950s. A perfect example of that is this 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Sidestep, built by “Customs by Lopez”. While the Chevy 3100 was part of the Chevy Task Force, also known as the “Blue Chip Series” in GMC dealerships, it started out as a humble, but rugged work truck. However, it has been transformed into a mean, rubber-burning machine.

What is the Least Expensive Chevy?

Chevy has a robust lineup with the cheapest models being the Chevy Spark at $13,220 and the Chevy Sonic at $15,420. Both of these models are small hatchbacks suited for big-city life. If you’re a family person and want a Chevy car, your cheapest offering is the Chevy Cruze with a starting price of $17,995. The cheapest crossover\SUV offering from Chevy is the subcompact Trax at $21,300, which is matched in price by the larger, entry-level Colorado pickup truck.

What is the Sportiest Chevy?

The sportiest Chevy is, hands down, the Chevy Corvette. It’s available in a number of trim levels, including Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1. Pricing for the Corvette ranges from $65,900 for the entry-level Grand Sport and can climb to beyond the $135,000 mark for the ZR1 packed full of optional extras. That ZR1 delivers 755 horsepower, can reach 60 mph in three-seconds flat, and tops out at 212 mph. The current-generation model is set to be replaced in 2020 by an all-new design that will see the Corvette transform into a mid-engine supercar. Needless to say, the Corvette will continue to be the sportiest Chevy for a long time to come.

What is the Most Popular Chevy?

In the automotive climate we live in today, it should come as no surprise that the Chevy Silverado is the brands best seller. In 2018, sales of the Silverado declined by 1.4-percent, and Chevy still sold 585,581 examples throughout the year. That’s barely more than half of its primary competition, the Ford F-Series, but it’s still Chevy’s bread and butter.

What is the Most Expensive Chevy?

The most expensive Chevy is the Corvette ZR1, and that’s not likely to change as Chevy transitions into selling the mid-engined C8 Corvette. Outside of performance offerings, its most expensive SUV is the Chevy Suburban with a $50,800 starting price and a fully equipped price that can approach the $80,000 mark. In terms of family cars, you’ll find the Chevy Impala is the most expensive with a starting price of $28,020, which can increase into $40,000 territory if you go crazy with option boxes.

What is the Fastest Chevy?

The fastest Chevy is, hands down, the Corvette ZR1 with a 60-mph sprint time of three-seconds flat and a top speed of 212 mph.

Are Chevys Reliable?

For 2019, J.D. Power ranked Chevy No. 4 in reliability out of 32 different automakers. The only brands that are considered more reliable are Lexus, Porsche, and Toyota. Sister brand Buick sits just below Chevy in the No. 5 spot. According to repair pal, Chevy models are rated 4 out of 5 in terms of reliability, which puts the brand above average. According to that outlet, the average cost of repair is $625 per year, $6 less than the average of $631. Frequency of unscheduled repairs is also low, with the average Chevy visiting a repair shop for unscheduled maintenance just 0.4 times per year. As far as severity is concerned, 13 percent of Chevys repaired each year are in for repairs that are considered urgent or serious.
