Chevrolet has placed an online configurator for the seventh-generation Vette on its page, which will allow you to configure the Stingray of your dreams. To be completely honest with you, it is not a configurator in the real sense of the word but more like a colorizer.
There are ten colors to choose from: Black, Laguna Blue Tintcoat, Chrystal Red Tintcoat, Cyber Gray Metallic, Lime Rock Green, Night Race Blue Metallic, Torch Red, Blade Silver Metallic, Arctic White, Velocity Yellow Tintcoat. These colors can be combined with three different set of wheels, you will be able to customize the Corvette to your liking.
Add in that new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that delivers a total of 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque and the Corvette is definitely a real head turner.
Let us know in the comment section below color do you think is the perfect one for the new Stingray.
The 2014 Chevy SS will make its world debut tomorrow at the at Daytona International Speedway’s fan zone. Until then, Chevrolet has decided to drop one final teaser of the new performance sedan. As you probably expected, the new teaser image reveals pretty much nothing, so its purpose was just to remind us to follow Chevrolet tomorrow at 13:05 p.m. EST.
Most of you already know what the new SS will look like, especially if you have kept track of the news in the past few weeks. First there was the revealing of the Nascar version of the SS and just the other day, Holden uncovered the new VF Commodore. This doesn’t mean that you cannot be excited for tomorrow’s reveal, as the new SS will likely adopt a more aggressive and sportier look.
As for what’s under the hood, you should expect a V8 engine with an output of at least 430 horsepower.
Chevy has just added a new model to its Cruze lineup: a new Clean Turbo Diesel version. However, it looks like at the same time the company is also working on the next-generation Cruze.
Even though the prototype caught testing here is heavily camouflaged, you can see that it looks much sleeker than the model it will replace. This impression is offered by a new and more rounded front end that will offer revised headlights. Additionally, the grille will be set a little bit lower than the current model and the hood-to-front fascia seam is higher. The rear also seems to be slightly longer, the lip on the trunk is a little more pronounced and the taillights will likely be completely redesigned – evident by the heavy camo on them. Also, it looks like the door handles now sit higher up on the door.
The next-generation Cruze will also be the first model built on General Motor’s new platform, which is internally called D2xx. The same platform will also be used for the next-generation Volt and Equinox among others.
We expect to see some updates under the hood too, with the biggest changes being made to lower the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Just like most hyped-up sports cars and supercars, the first reported crash of said car is always a big deal, as it inevitably shoves the poor driver into supercar in infamy.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is one such car and as fate would have it, and it didn’t take long for the first reported crash of the Stingray to make the news.
According to the folks over at Digital Corvettes, the crash took place somewhere in Arizona after the driver of the Corvette Stingray lost control of the sports car, sending it careening into a guardrail before "bouncing back to the rocks" as the image shows.
From what people in forum have said, the crash happened in a section of road with tight switchbacks that seems to suggest that the Corvette could’ve been running faster than it should for the driver to lose control. The photo of the Corvette Stingray makes it look like it got dinged up pretty bad, but forum poster, gpetry, said that the car was in worse shape than the photo suggests.
Tough luck for the driver and worse for the not-yet-released Corvette Stingray. We’re just hoping nobody was seriously hurt from this crash.
Chevy revealed a very cool commercial that highlights the coolest models it has unveiled in the past few months, including the Sonic, Spark, Impala, Corvette Stingray and Volt. There’s no need to tell you, but from all these models the new Stingray is our favorite, but the 2014 Impala is also pretty sexy model too.
The idea behind this commercial is that Chevy is offering a model for anyone out there; you just need to dare go and find the one that suits you best. What we cannot understand is what the heck the robo-dog is doing in there. Then again, much like blue jean commercials, car commercial don’t make sense, so who knows!
Chevrolet’s motto for the new commercial is also pretty direct: "With the best lineup of vehicles ever, we believe ingenuity can do the impossible. So why just go from A to B when imagination can take you everywhere?"
You may have seen an amateur video of this helicopter crash back in May of last year, but what we saw before pales in comparison to the ones that were captured by the actual cameras filming the first episode of Top Gear Korea.
During the filming of a segment involving a race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and an AH1 Helicopter, the pilot manning the controls of the latter somehow loses control of his ride. It ends up careening straight into the ground in a spectacular crash that was caught live on camera by the Top Gear crew.
While we’re thankful that the pilot escaped the nightmarish experience without any injuries, we’re wondering why the scene looks to have made it to the first episode of the show.
We’re all for hyping up a show the best way you can, but not at the expense of someone losing his life.
When we thought we had seen it all, Chevy unveiled a rather strange Camaro Coupe at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show in order to promote DreamWorks’ new "Turbo" movie, which is set to arrive on July 19, 2013.
Since "Turbo" will be an animated movie, the new Camaro Turbo has been designed accordingly. It gets lower rockers and fender flares, a front splitter and rear diffuser and a GT concept rear wing spoiler. The concept is painted black with a vinyl chrome wrap, but there are numerous multicolor LED light insertions on the front and rear for an intriguing halo effect. The concept sits on a set of huge wheels, sized 24-inches by 10-inches up front and 24-inches by 15-inches on the rear.
Under the hood, the V-8 engine has been tricked to deliver a monstrous 700 horsepower, thanks to the addition of a supercharger system and a new exhaust system with five-inch-diameter pipes.
Clean diesel models are just starting to make their ways into the North American market, and to everyone’s surprise, they do quite well. For example, in the first quarter of 2012, sales numbers were up 35 percent when compared to the same period of 2011 and things continue to improve.
From all diesel units sold in the USA last year, a total of 44 percent where the Jetta TDI, a pretty astounding result, considering this is about half of a market that offers about 25 clean diesel models, which experts say will double by 2017.
The first step into this direction was made at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show where Chevy unveiled the new Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel - not a big surprise considering Cruze is Chevrolet’s hottest-selling sedan.
The model will be put on sale at a starting price at $25,695, which is about $2,500 more than the Jetta TDI priced at $23,055.

We have already seen the NASCAR version of the new Chevrolet SS, and now we are waiting to see the production version of this model. The wait will soon be over, as its reveal will happen on February 16th at Daytona International Speedway’s fan zone.
Jim Campbell, Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president, confirmed that the production version will be offered with a V-8 engine and a rear-wheel-drive system. Previous rumors suggested that this engine will deliver at least 350 horsepower and a peak torque of 381 pound-feet.
The new Chevrolet SS will go into production in November and sales will begin in late 2013 and, unfortunately, it will be built in limited numbers. He also confirmed that the new SS will be priced higher than the Impala, which has a base price of $27,535. This means that our previous assumption of a $35k price tag likely wasn’t that far off.
Joe Flacco won a whole lot more than just a Super Bowl championship after leading the Baltimore Ravens to their second title in team history. Sure, he threw for 287 yards with three touchdowns and also won himself the game’s MVP award.
You could make a case that Ravens receivers Anquan Boldin and Jacoby Jones also deserved the MVP award, but we have no problem with Flacco winning it. The man proved up to the task and showed that he belongs in the elite class of quarterbacks in the NFL.
Seeing as how somebody can apparently win a 2014 Corvette Stingray by playing football and leading his team to the Super Bowl title, then we would’ve signed up to play football a long time ago.
Ok, maybe not.
In any case, congratulations to Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens for winning Super Bowl XLVII. Certainly well deserved!
