Chevrolet celebrated the Camaro’s 50th anniversary in 2017. There was a commemorative model with special trim, but here we’re more interested in the latest high-performance ZL1 as a possible future collectible.
For as globalized as the auto business has become, you might think a brand as omnipresent as Chevrolet would sell pretty much the same lineup in every market it plays in. Turns out that’s not the case.
The 2003-2006 Chevrolet SSR was a retro-styled convertible pickup truck, though the vehicles with which it shared its basic architecture were none of the above.

It’s getting hard to sell cars. And when I say cars, I mean cars specifically, because automakers are having no trouble at all moving crossovers. Take last year, for example. In an overall market that was down slightly, car sales slipped a significant 11 percent, while crossover sales rose a healthy seven percent.
DETROIT—After a dramatic “sneak peek” unveiling last month at the Chevrolet Trucks 100th Anniversary celebration in Texas, Chevrolet officially introduced the redesigned 2019 Chevrolet Silverado in conjunction with the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The all-new Silverado is lighter, longer, and taller than the current model; offers new technology and convenience features; and gains an all-new available 3.0-liter Duramax diesel 6-cylinder engine.
Chevrolet’s extra-large SUVs can get a bit more attitude for 2018 with the addition of the RST Edition package. Available on both Tahoes and Suburbans, the RST (for “Rally Sport Truck”) appearance package brings a body-color grille surround and door handles in place of chrome, as well as blacked-out mirror caps, grille, window-trim, badging, and roof rails. The finishing touch is a set of exclusive 22-inch wheels on Bridgestone tires.
