The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.

Automotive

Spy shots of the Chevy Silverado 2500/3500 have leaked and although the body changes are only minor, reports indicate that the 6.6L V-8 will be heavily redone to compete with the Ford Super Duty series. The workhorse is expected to push out over 425hp and a heaping 860lb-ft of torque.

According to reports, you will soon be able to upgrade the family Volvo with Polestar performance parts. Up until now, Polestar performance was only available to those who purchased a Polestar edition of the 60 series, like the V60. Now that Volvo owns Polestar, customers will be able to pick and choose performance parts to tune their Volvos to their exact liking.

According to spy shots and reports, the 2018 BMW M5 is keeping similar power numbers but could lose up to 220lbs. The new M5 will likely use the 5.5L V-8, which makes upwards of 600hp. That will be... enough.

You can never have too many flannels. Simple. End of story. That's where Stock Mfg Co comes in. Their new Fisherman’s Flannel is a perfect blend of classic and crisp. Accented pockets and a trim cut mean this flannel will lend your outdoorsy look just enough urban cool.

Lifestyle

Today’s beer pick takes us to Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Founded in 2011, Tired Hands is a product of founder Jean Broillet’s passion for homebrewing—particularly farmhouse ales. Now, his team is a respectable addition to the craft beer community, known as a brewery that isn’t afraid to venture beyond the average pale ale. Their tasty brews are too numerous to list: you'll have to check out their brewpub for yourself.
