This weekend’s John Wayne Walding 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway features a great pace car; the 2014 Chevy SS. That got us thinking about pace vehicles that just don’t seem to fit. What we found were the five worse pace cars of all time. See if you agree.
Banking on the success that Tesla has had with the luxury Model S, the automaker’s recently confirmed Model III looks to take the EV battle to the masses. The question remains, at least for General Motors, what will defend sales from Tesla’s new $35,000-$40,000 offering?
If it seems like auto recalls are on the rise– you’d be correct. 2014 marks the year that the auto industry recalled more cars than any other year in the history of the automobile. And according to reports, the government is looking to ratchet that up. So what does that mean for the consumer, as well as the industry?
Much of the motoring world has been waiting to drive the all-new Chevrolet SS. With Australian supercar roots and the beating heart of an LS3 V8, what’s not to love? Well for any potential haters out there, Chevrolet is making a few updates to the 2015 SS, and it sure is upping the ante.
This was bound to happen. With the explosion of the crossover market, it was only a matter of time before the soft-roading, jacked up wagon that we call the crossover would overtake the sedan as the top-selling vehicle class in America.
Ford has pretty much cornered the market on high-performance, off-road pickup trucks with the F-150 SVT Raptor. It’s the best off-road performance pickup you can buy because it’s virtually the only one you can buy. But Chevy might change all that with the introduction of a Raptor-fighting Colorado.
Ok, so it’s not a legit racing event. But if there’s a number of old ‘Vettes lying around — especially a few with some mileage on them — we wouldn’t mind paying some money to go watch this kind of rally race.
Here in America we have a certain saying: “If there’s something worth doing, it’s worth overdoing.” And no one lives up to that mantra quite like Chevy. Oh yes, America’s largest automaker, and one of the biggest automakers in the world truly knows how to “overdo” things. But in the best freakin’ way imaginable.
Yesterday marked another not-so-great day in the world of General Motors. Coming off near-20-million recalled vehicles to date, GM has announced the recall of another 8.4 million vehicles, with 8.2 million of those vehicles affected by “unintended ignition key rotation.”
GM has a problem, one that has plagued the automaker for nearly a century. It’s too big. Its too structured. Entire layers of the company are disconnected from what should be the firm’s only business: building incredible vehicles. This weakness has brought it to the edge of ruin time and again. This is a tragedy, because GM has the potential to be the world’s greatest car manufacturer, if only it were as passionate about autos as its profit margins.
