Camaro Hopes and Dreams

2016 Chevy Camaro Rear

The Camaro has long been a pony car that many love to buy and makes for a great sports car that can be driven daily.  With the new 2016 model just around the corner, there are some items from the 2015 model that hopefully will have been addressed to create a much better overall driving experience.  Understandably the Camaro has never been a car that was advertised as being a comfortable ride with sport and performance as its main components, but some of the items that need to be changed for the new version have to do with the performance, others simply have to do with improving the overall driving experience in the car.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

After vacating the mid-sized truck market for a few years, Chevrolet has come back with a new Colorado that is a stronger and more fuel efficient offering than ever before. This highly capable and enjoyable truck shows up with a size that fits into any garage, the versatility of having an Extended Cab or Crew Cab, rear or four-wheel drive, and a five or six-foot bed make the Colorado a truck that has an option for just about any truck lover to find the right choice. Leading the way in towing capacity in this class, the Colorado offers towing capacity of 7,000 pounds giving owners a leg up on the competition when hauling the workload or the fun toys.

The Chevrolet Camaro Z28: A Return to Real American Muscle

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

What does the name Camaro mean to you? Do you think of the years gone by of the Great American Muscle Car, with a huge engine, awesome power, killer skids off the line, and the rumble and shake from under the hood that meant others better back away?  If so, the new version of the Chevrolet Z28 Camaro is sure to bring those nostalgic memories back to the front of your mind for you.

At the 2013 New York Auto Show, Chevrolet stole the show when instead of revealing just another new Camaro a fully powered, ferocious looking Z28 roared onto the stage and wowed the crowd.  The new Z28 is so amazing it actually performs the ZL1 in many regards, which is quite an accomplishment as the ZL1 was supposed to put the Z28 in its grave, but here it is, back and better than ever.
