Chevrolet's Bolt May Come Sooner Than Expected

Jun 30, 2015 - 11:21 AM - by Diego

Chevy pulls ahead timetable for Bolt EV

DETROIT -- General Motors has accelerated development of the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle as the automaker tries to have the first mainstream brand with a long-range EV on the market.

GM engineers said last week that they've pulled ahead their timetable for Bolt production, though they wouldn't say by how much or give a production target date.

GM confirmed in February plans to build the Bolt, which it says will go about 200 miles on a single charge and cost around $30,000 after tax breaks. An on-sale date of sometime in 2017 has been widely reported.

More 2016 Cadillac XT5 Photos - New Angles!

Jun 29, 2015 - 2:20 PM - by Diego

You've already expressed your opinions - good and bad - on the 2016 Cadillac XT5 crossover that was caught at a photo shoot in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, so are you interested in more photos from other angles?

That's what we thought.

When it debuts at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, the XT5 will be a 5-seater, but a 7-seat configuration will eventually join the XT5 roster.

According to AutoGuide, "The familiar 3.6-liter V6 is expected to be available at launch while turbocharged engines, a diesel and a plug-in hybrid setup are all expected to join the lineup."

To see all the new spied-in-NYC photos, plus more info on what you can expect from the XT5's... [Read More]

GMI Review: 2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0T Premium

Jun 25, 2015 - 3:13 PM - by Diego

Cadillac has become a whipping boy for the automotive press over the past several years, but it’s difficult to understand why. Look at Cadillac’s lineup and you’ll find vehicles that can compete with the best in their respective segments, from the ATS-V to the Escalade. So what’s the problem?

That’s what we were wondering when we first sat in this 2015 ATS 2.0T. The Lansing-built, entry-level ATS debuted for the 2013 model year and immediately won accolades for its Alpha chassis, giving a fine blend of low mass, 51/49 weight distribution, and stellar suspension tuning. The resulting nimble driving dynamics would be at home in a car from some fürrin country we defeated 70 years ago. ... [Read More]

Is There a Corvette Manta Ray in Chevrolet's Future?

Jun 23, 2015 - 12:46 PM - by Diego

Corvette Manta Ray Trademarked
Chevy has filed for a particularly interesting trademark.

You know there have been rumors of a mid-engined Corvette - is this the next step in its manifestation?

Maybe. Or maybe not. Regardless, enthusiasts may find a new, special-edition Corvette to lust after. Not until the ZR1 in 1990 did enthusiasts receive a Corvette that was marketed as a step above, but by now we expect Chevrolet to line up a "Super Corvette" or two. We have the C7 Z06 and a C6 ZR1 also has appeared, so could this going to be a version of the C7 that tops the Z06?
