4 Chevrolet Vehicles Named Car and Driver Editors’ Choices

From the spacious Suburban to the sporty Corvette, the Chevrolet lineup is versatile enough to satisfy the needs and wants of every driver. But you don’t have to take our word for it — the experts at Car and Driver have high praise for a select bunch of Chevy vehicles. Here’s a look at the four Chevrolet vehicles named Car and Driver editors’ choices.

Chevrolet Corvette

The C8 Corvette earned high praise for its supercar performance and affordable price tag. The editors also appreciated its upscale cabin features and the advanced amenities on the upper-trim models.

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

If you’re looking for racetrack-ready performance without breaking the bank, the pros at Car and Driver would like to direct your attention to the range-topping Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The judges also heaped praise upon this all-American muscle car’s supercharged V8 engine.

This roomy full-size SUV won over the Car and Driver crew with its towing capabilities and nimble handling for its size. Plus, it offers you a choice between a diesel engine and a 6.2-liter V8.

Chevrolet Tahoe

The Tahoe outshined the competition thanks to its spacious third-row seats, quiet ride, and impressive maximum towing capacity. With up to 8,400 pounds of maximum towing capability, this SUV is perfect for everything from campers to horse trailers.

Consumer Reports Updates Its Car Ratings System

With consumer preferences changing, cars performing better, faster, quieter, and more efficiently, Consumer Reports has announced it is updating its rating system, shifting the focus based on current consumer preferences and raising the bar on some performance features.

According to Consumer Reports, “We’ve recently modified our scoring ­system so that the individual ratings we give to certain aspects of a vehicle’s ­performance align better with our ­testers’ assessments and our written ­reviews.” Now, more weight goes to a vehicle’s ride comfort and quietness and the bar has been raised for the acceleration and braking performance.

A clear example of these higher standards is the Chevrolet Corvette, which delivered shorter breaking distance than any car Consumer Reports has ever recorded before.

In general, scores may have moved slightly up or down, but no car was affected dramatically.

“We think the scoring modifications better reflect the preferences of today’s consumers and provide a more realistic perspective of how current ­vehicles stack up with one another. These scores are now reflected across ConsumerReports.org.”
