New for 2018:Chevrolet Cars

Christian Wardlaw | Jan 30, 2018

From the “no news is good news” department, Chevrolet makes almost no changes to its lineup of passenger cars. Only the enthusiast-oriented Camaro and Corvette see significant updates in the form of special editions and option packages that improve performance. Also, the Cruze Hatch is now available with a diesel engine.
