Chevrolet looks towards the past with 2015 Silverado Custom Sport edition

Chevrolet has announced it is launching a new Custom Sport appearance package that will be available on select 2015 Silverado 1500 models.

The package draws inspiration from the Custom Sport Truck that was introduced in time for the 1967 model year. The Custom Sport Truck helped make the pickup popular as a personal vehicle thanks to features like bright trim on the outside, plush carpet and bucket seats.

The Silverado Custom Sport gains body-colored bumpers on both ends, a black radiator grille with chrome accents, 20-inch chromed alloy wheels as well as chrome trim on the mirrors, the door handles and the plastic cladding at the bottom of the doors. Projector beam headlights and tow hooks front and back round out the exterior modifications.

Chevrolet has not published pictures of the interior but it says the package adds heated mirrors.

The Custom Sport package will be available on LT and LTZ double and crew cab models, including those equipped with the off-road-focused Z71 package. LT Custom Sport trucks will be available in black or white, while LTZ models will come in either black or White Diamond Tricoat.

Set to go on sale later this month, the package will cost between $1,950 and $2,950 depending on which model it is paired with.

Kia EV3 vs Hyundai Ioniq 5: Can the EV3 take out Hyundai’s best EV?
White Kia EV3

The Kia EV3 has finally been announced, and it could well become the best low-cost electric car yet. The new EV keeps many of the design elements that I loved about the Kia EV9, but in a much smaller body and likely at a much lower price.

However, the Kia EV3 will go head-to-head with a number of other electric cars that we already consider to be the best in the lower-cost segment. One of those is the Hyundai Ioniq 5, which is loved for its stylish design, solid range, and superfast charging speed.

Jeep joins the EV party with the 600-horsepower Wagoneer S

After getting things rolling with plug-in hybrids, Jeeps’ electrification plans are picking up speed. Scheduled to reach dealerships this fall, the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is the brand’s first EV for North America.

The Wagoneer name is right up there with Wrangler and Grand Cherokee in Jeep lore. The original Jeep Wagoneer was one of the first truly civilized SUVs and became the namesake for a modern sub-brand encompassing the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, two leviathan gas guzzlers that went on sale as 2022 models. The Wagoneer S shares little with these SUVs besides a name.

The Kia EV9 is being built in Georgia — making it a whole lot cheaper
Kia EV9 GT-Line Three Quarters

Kia has officially kicked off production of the EV9 electric SUV in Georgia. That's big news for a number of reasons. First, it makes the EV9 the first EV to be assembled in Georgia. Second, it means more solid jobs in the U.S. And third, it means that the well-priced electric SUV is about to get even cheaper.

The reason for the price decrease is simple -- by moving production of the EV9 to Georgia from Korea, the SUV will now qualify for the federal EV tax credit, bringing the total price of the vehicle down by a hefty $7,500. It was already one of the more affordable electric SUVs, but the big rebate makes it even more enticing.
