Two things regarding Chevrolet:

Cruze Diesel is now on sale.

2014 Chevrolet Impalas are spending an average of seven days in inventory before being sold.

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.
