Just something I noticed while checking inventories:

2014 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra Crew Cabs with 5.3L L83 V8s are now on their way to dealers or already on dealer lots.

Fen, great thread and thanks for all the info...

I have seen Captiva's driving around in Barcelona, Spain in 2011 I believe. Then about a few months later, the Ohio area. But when I look into the US GM site, no mention of these. Where are these coming from?

My wife wanted a small SUV to share the garage with my Camaro. To date, we have yet to find a small SUV with a plush interior and some HP/TQ. As of now, the BMW X3 is what she is looking at.

GM Planning anything like this? Thanks.

Isn't the Captiva a rebadged Saturn Vue? It's available as a fleet vehicle here in the states.

Thanks. I knew I wasn't crazy. Found it under the Fleet site. Stupid question, why is it under the fleet site instead of the Chevy site? I am just curious. It doesn't have the power my wife is wanting... :(

It's a way for GM to provide fleet customers with a compact/midsize crossover without killing Equinox resale values.

I'm assuming its the S/C LT rendering we saw but the article said it topped the LSA. What I don't get is, the LS9 already topped the LSA so either the blown LT won't break 630 HP or that was a mistake in the article. I'm hoping the article was wrong.

Is the Z06 staying N/A or going F/I?

Im pretty sure that the Z06 will say N/A cause that is what it is known for a nice N/a responsive lively motor that has a high redline. But I bet it will cost atleast 90k for the Next gen Z06.

So because my family has pretty close ties to the company and still derive some income from it, I've kinda taken it upon myself to help out in any way I can, mostly answering people's questions about current and future product.
This about sums it up.

I hope it stays N/A.

I don't see the Z06 going up too high. The Stingray got an aluminum frame and the LT1 and isn't too much more money than the base C6.

Cool Thanks for being a member of this community! Its nice to have people "in-the-know" that probably won't get in trouble for saying more than what has been released to the general public.

Buick version of Equinox/Terrain CUV spied testing... with autonomous gear?
Autoblog
By Jeremy Korzeniewski

June 12, 2013

Let's get the most pressing bits of this story out of the way right off the bat: What we see here appears to be a new compact crossover from Buick. According to the spy photographer, this machine may be a little bit smaller on the outside than the current Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain 'utes, which makes sense since recent rumors suggest GM's small crossovers will migrate to a new platform that will mark a convergence between the automaker's Delta (Chevy Cruze, Buick Verano) and Theta (Equinox, Terrain) platforms. This Buick would likely use this new D2UX platform.

We've been expecting Buick to unleash a crossover to slot between the very small Encore and the very large Enclave, and various rumors have indicated that the model may be known as either the Anthem or Envision. It's worth mentioning that Buick had planned, back in 2009, to release a vehicle in the compact CUV market, but abandoned those plans after a particularly poor reception.

And now for something completely different... Take another look at the spy shots above, and pay special attention to the cylindrical device mounted to the vehicle's roof. We can't say for sure what it is, but our spy photographer opines that it looks quite a bit like the 360-degree Lidar camera equipment used by Google for its autonomous cars. Is General Motors working with Google on autonomous car technology? We don't know, but you can definitely consider us intrigued.

Spy photos at the link.

I was honestly not aware GM was doing something between Encore and Enclave so this is news to me.

Just found out the nameplate, Buick Anthem. I have actually heard of it, but I wasn't expecting anything to come out of the program.
