With Father’s Day fast approaching, do you know what you’re getting for Dad? Or are you at a loss for ideas, unsure that another set of golf clubs will cut it this year? Perhaps arming him with an incredible new SUV would be better than a “World’s Best Dad” mug. But which SUV is best?

So-called “compact” (mid-size) pickups are the new darlings of the road in America, appealing to those looking for the utility of a pickup truck without having to spend their lives filling up at the gas station. They’re easier to drive — and park — in congested areas of Kansas City, while also being fun to drive in more rural areas. In other words, midsize trucks offer something that many drivers are looking for today: versatility.
The 2018 Chevy Colorado offers that versatility along with great performance in a stylish-looking, option-packed package. Here’s how the experts rate the new Colorado, which is available for sale and lease right now at our Overland Park Chevy dealer.
Value Even With the Base Level Trim
Motor Trend reviewers point out that even if you go no farther than the base trim level, you’ll still get plenty of value like Bluetooth, a rear-view camera, Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a USB port, a six-speaker audio system, a 3.5-inch instrument cluster display and 16-inch steel wheels.

Chevy and Ford, rivals from the beginning of time, both have popular SUVs in their Traverse and Explorer models. But which one gives you more bang for your buck in terms of performance, utility, and comfort? We checked in with the experts at Car and Driver to get their take on each 2018 SUV, to hopefully end this “Traverse vs. Explorer” debate once and for all.
Why Car and Driver? When it comes to comprehensive vehicle reviews, nobody’s more thorough than the experts at Car and Driver. They not only provide an overall impression of a vehicle, they dissect it, examining and rating every component to deliver a rating that’s actually backed up by a whole lot of legwork.
That’s exactly what they did with both the 2018 Chevy Traverse and its rival, the 2018 Ford Explorer. Here’s their verdict.
It’s that time of year again—championship college football has just concluded, “The Big Game” is right around the corner, and the newest 2018 car commercials are revving to go. Before you gather up your friends and family for the February football game, take a look at the best Chevrolet commercials and videos from years past. (They’ll be good primer for whatever Chevy releases this year.)
A poor, foolish grad student mistakenly thinks that his parents have just bought him a new Chevy as a graduation present. The sheer excitement and over-enthusiasm makes for a great car ad—perhaps even one of the funniest Chevy commercials ever created.

Read on to find out.
November is here, and soon Thanksgiving will be upon us. That means lots of turkey, mounds of stuffing, and loads of calories. Thanksgiving is a fantastic time to gather with family and friends to celebrate yearly traditions—some heartwarming, some unique, and some that are just downright wacky. We’ve scoured the web to find and share some of the greatest Thanksgiving traditions so your family can have a truly memorable holiday this year.
The Wacky Thanksgiving Traditions
The Turkey Dance. We know what you’re thinking, but no, this isn’t a twist on a chicken dance. This incredibly funny tradition involves an actual dance with your uncooked turkey. That’s right: one festive family (and maybe more) created a tradition of naming their turkey and then dancing around the kitchen with it before it’s stuffed and cooked. Poor turkey—thinks he’s at a disco but ends up on being the main course! Continue Reading →
Corvette owners are in an exclusive club–one whose members expect the highest performance money can buy. The Corvette legacy began with the iconic Corvette Stingray in 1953 and has since become one of the most legendary American-made powerhouses. While the 2017 Corvette may be a tough act to follow (with a Consumer Reports owner satisfaction rating of “excellent”), the 2018 ‘Vette is sure to exceed the expectations of even the most demanding high-performance drivers.
