My first experience with the new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is something I'm going to remember for a long time. Pulling a trailer with a two-story-tall anvil weighing a combined 35,500 pounds will be hard to forget. Even though the foam anvil only accounts for about 1,200 pounds of my load (steel plates make up most of the heft), it's still quite a sight.
It may look like I'm trailering Wile E. Coyote's latest Acme order, but that still doesn't take away from how oddly at ease I am behind the wheel of this Looney Tunes setup.
At take-off, my Duramax diesel-powered 3500HD dually shudders ever so slightly before rolling away down a closed-off airport runway outside Bend, Oregon. The truck builds speed in a reasonably swift manner, while braking and maneuvering around an open pad is anticlimactic. Besides swinging out more widely for tighter turns and longer launch times, it's a surprisingly normal drive experience.
The first model could launch in late 2021, with two more hitting the market by 2023.
The union will complete a vote on the tentative agreement on Oct. 25.
After decades of flirting, GM has finally given us a mid-engine Corvette. Profoundly modernized and brimming with new character, the change should attract many, but could turn off some traditionalists.
Ready or not, GM's mid-engined revolution is upon us.
After decades of teasing, GM's mid-engined Corvette is here. With 490+ horsepower and a remarkable base price, the C8 is good enough to put the world on notice, but some loyalists might not be ready for the revolution.
This lil' pumpkin seed of a car is getting longer legs for the 2020 model year.
More features, more tech and, yes, more driving range. Chevy's electric Bolt charges into 2020 with a number of improvements.
And hopefully it's a precursor to a Raptor rival.
