2019 5.3L V-8 DFM VVT DI (L84) for Chevrolet Silverado

The L84 5.3-liter V8 will be one of two 2019 Chevrolet Silverado engines equipped with General Motors’ new Dynamic Fuel Management cylinder-deactivation system.

Even if you’re only casually interested in automotive technology, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Cadillac’s ill-fated V8-6-4 engine, which became available for the 1981 model year.

There’s something to be said for people who go to Golden Corral specifically for the steak. Steak, it seems, means different things to many people. There’s the Ruth’s Chris steak, and there’s the buffet-style steak–as seen at restaurants such as Golden Corral. If you’re an average American, it’s likely you can’t afford to visit Ruth’s Chris on a weekly basis, no matter how good the dry-aged center-cut ribeye is.

Goodguys Heartland Gallery

Fairly ordinary then, far from ordinary now: a 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 two-door hardtop.

Every summer, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association stages about 20 annual street rod and custom car events at fairgrounds and other large venues across the country. These are sprawling, weekend-long gatherings that include attractions such as swap meets, manufacturer midways, live music, autocross competitions, and plenty of on-premises cruising. They draw huge numbers of participant vehicles and spectators—the larger events regularly surpass 4000 registered show cars.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

Chevrolet’s Blazer model name first appeared on a rugged, body-on-frame 2-door SUV introduced in 1969, and would go on to grace a number of Chevrolet SUVs over the years until it was phased out after the 2005 model year.

1913 Chevrolet Type C Tourer

Note: The following story was excerpted from the June 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The first Chevrolet doesn’t seem like a Chevy. It wasn’t reasonably priced or modestly sized. It didn’t have an overhead-valve engine. It didn’t even wear a bowtie badge.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

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.

Chevrolet Bonanza

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.

Maybe you’ve heard of the “runner’s high,” an elusive phenomenon experienced by distance runners and other serious exercise buffs. At some point during a good, long run, an endurance-focused athlete can experience a period of euphoria that, to hear some folks tell it, makes the whole physical-exertion thing more than worth the effort.

2006 Chevrolet SSR

2006 Chevrolet SSR

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 would not surprise me if the SSR was the product of a truth-or-dare game gone horribly wrong, and a group a General Motors engineers found themselves at the losing end of a sinister “dare.”
