We first talked about the 2014 Impala back before the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show, but details on the car were pretty sparse. Now, Chevy has come along with plenty of new information about the car, as well as a price and an approximate release window.  Read More

A side view of the Spark EV

Chevy is looking to rewrite the book on electric vehicles with its upcoming Spark EV. GM first announced that Chevrolet would be producing the car a little over a year ago, and now, new details have emerged on the upcoming electric vehicle. It looks like Chevy is aiming to improve overall power, range and charge times for electric vehicles in general.  Read More

Budding designers can evaluate their design in a six-person car

Any kid that has dreamt of designing their own car now has the chance to make that dream a (virtual) reality. A collaboration between Chevy designers and Walt Disney Imagineers has resulted in a redesigned, refocused Test Track at the Epcot Theme Park. Instead of telling the tale of vehicle testing and research like the original Test Track did, the new Test Track winds the clock back to the design phase.  Read More

The Corvette LT1 V-8 complete engine

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is scheduled to hit the market late next year, and Chevy has given us a preview of its brand new engine. The automaker has said that its goal with the 2014 Corvette is to raise the bar in terms of performance engines. It also wanted to focus on fuel economy, while not sacrificing the raw power that Corvette fans expect. It's now been revealed that the vehicle is going to come off assembly lines with a 6.2L V-8 that is able to deliver an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque.  Read More

The Chevrolet Trax will be rolled-out in 140 markets from the end of 2012

Chevrolet will introduce a new compact sport utility vehicle known as the Trax at the 2012 Paris motor show. If the name rings a bell, that's because Trax was also the label given to a diminutive SUV concept that Chevrolet floated back in 2007 and while there is next to no detail on the production model at this stage, we do know that it won't be heading to the U.S. market.  Read More

New models galore at Thai Motor Show

The strength of the world's emerging economies was on display at the opening of the Thai Motor Show today. For the next 10 days, 170,000 people a day will visit the show, and despite the country having been largely under water for much of 2011, the Thai motor industry looks more buoyant than ever. Almost every major manufacturer had something on show we haven't seen before. Great picture gallery.  Read More

Muscle cars may have been built on manual transmission technology, but automatics have cau...

The 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 - the most powerful production Camaro ever - will make use of the latest iteration of TapShift technology. This automated transmission option allows drivers to move through gears using paddle shifters. The updated 2012 TapShift system creates faster shifts, that make the automatic Camaro quicker to 60 mph ( 96.5 km/h) than the manual version. While the transmission choice for a muscle car as fast and powerful as the ZL1 would traditionally have been obvious in the past (manual all the way), GM's updated TapShift technology makes a strong case for the automatic.  Read More
