It's probably better that way. Good idea, Stig.

An update on the 2014 Cruze Diesel:

The 2.0L TurboDiesel has now been SAE certified at 151 HP and 264 lb ft of torque with overboost capability to 280 lb ft of torque. Fuel economy remains at 46 MPG highway.

This is an increase over the original ratings of 148 HP/258 lb ft torque and 42 MPG highway.

I was sure hoping this would break the 50's in MPG's. Close, but no cigar.

It'll probably break 50 in real world driving. From what I understand the EPA test cycle doesn't really favor diesel capabilities all that well.

And Cruzes in general also seem to do better than the EPA cycle.

First photo of the 2014 Caprice 9C1 interior with the new dash-mounted shifter.

9C3 model has been deleted. To my great disappointment.

Also: unconfirmed rumor that the 6.2L L86 V8 in the K2XX trucks is rated at 420 HP and 450 lb ft torque.

That's bad ass.

And probably 450HP 480TQ or more on E85.

And a small ray of cheer after the tragic tornadoes in Oklahoma...



The owner of this mangled Silverado hopped into the cab and turned the key just for kicks.

It still runs.

For 2014 the Chevrolet Spark swaps out its 4-speed transmission for a CVT.

It now has class-leading fuel economy at 39 MPG highway.

Fen, a personal question if you don't mind me asking. When was your dad working on the F-Body line at Norwood?

Not exactly sure what years but I think around the mid to late 1970s through the plant's closure in 1987.

Apparently all 2014 Cruze models might be getting an MPG bump from aerodynamic enhancements being spread throughout the lineup.

Quick walkaround, exhaust note, and 0-100 km/h video of a 2014 Holden Commodore SS-V aka Chevrolet SS minus the manual transmission.

You forgot to mention the addition of a 415 hp 6.2L V8.

On a side note: I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a manual option and quad tip exhausts for the 2015 SS.

Almost forgot about this.

Four years ago today...GM went into Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

There was a lot of fear and uncertainty in the days that followed, but four years later, I have never been more confident in this company's ability to design, build, and sell the world's best cars, trucks, and SUVs.

There's still a lot of work to be done. The next few years are going to be very exciting.

Man I can't wait.

They are putting out some good stuff lately.

If the 6th gen ends up being as good of a looker as the 5th gen was when it came out and blew our minds....my wife will want to kill me when I ask her if I can "upgrade" lol.
