However, the powerful and thirsty V8 engine lacks the crucial turbo-charge, something that may be a deal breaker for some.

So that means that for over $60000, you get a new Chevy and a top-of-the-class infotainment system to match – which packs a backup camera, smartphone connectivity, satellite radio, and LTE Wi-Fi bands.
