Next-Generation Chevrolet Malibu Can Handle Any Pothole In The World

The clues keep coming in about the next-generation Chevrolet Malibu. Probably the most important concerns its debut. The new Malibu will pirouette at the upcoming New York Auto Show next month.

Until then, we’ve learned a little about where Chevrolet has taken the new design. Gathering from a teaser video, the automaker is focusing on the Malibu’s durability. Sounds like they’ve taken design aspect to the extreme. Automotive News quotes the Chevy as saying that they’ve pooled data recording every “harshness and frequency of every jounce, bump and shudder inflicted on the car on roads in the U.S., Russia, Saudi Arabia and developing markets.”

While they know that the average Malibu owner isn’t going to come anywhere near the design limits of the Malibu, Chevy wants the interested buyer to know that the Malibu isn’t the kind of ride to ever let them down. In fact, the Malibu’s reliability and durability has always been strong.  JD Power tapped the Malibu as being most reliable in its three-year reliability study. Some things never change and some things never should.

2015 Chevy Colorado Offers Box Delete Option

Growing up, did your mom ever tell you that you were throwing away money when she bought a long sleeve t-shirt only to watch you cut off the sleeves and slice and dice the shirt into the shape you wanted it to take? Chevrolet recognizes that Mom has a point, so the automaker offers the box delete option for the all-new Colorado. You only pay for the part of the truck that you want to use and delete the rest.

2015 Colorado box delete optionThe box delete package, exclusive to the 2015 Colorado in the mid-size truck segment, is available on the Colorado Work Truck 2WD extended cab with 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

“With segment-leading efficiency and maneuverable size, the Colorado makes a great, flexible choice for urban businesses and fleets to make the most of a midsize truck,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of General Motors Fleet and Commercial. “It’s ideal for companies requiring service bodies, as well as landscapers and other businesses needing the utility of a flatbed.”

As part of the package, temporary taillamps are installed on the rear of the vehicle, a full-size spare tire is included, and, of course, the rear bumper is deleted.

Plus, the package adds a $300 credit to the truck’s price.

The Very First 1967 Chevy Camaro Coming to GM Nationals

A truly one-of-a-kind Chevrolet will be headlining the GM Nationals in Carlisle Pennsylvania this June. It is the origin of a species; the very first Chevy Camaro ever built way back in 1966 by hand as part of a 49 car pilot program. This is the same car that was used for track testing and as the first show car at the Camaro launch in 1967.

The first of the five generations of Camaro wears VIN N10001 and the color Grenada Gold metallic paint that it did those many years ago. Since its previous life as a show car, it was sold and used as a daily driver and then an NHRA drag racecar. Believe it or not, the historic car was purchased for its original sales price of $2,500 in 2010, was restored, and has returned to its previous life as a show car.
