Cars, Reviews I By Winding Road Staff I August 27, 2014
Today we’re behind the wheel of Chevrolet’s pony car contender.

Upping the ante even further is the Spring Special Edition options package, which includes 21-inch wheels, the RS appearance package, the rear spoiler from the ZL1 model and a blue leather interior with white accents.
