First Drive: 2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 28 June 2013 10:34

"New from hood to hitch"


The Chevrolet Silverado is all-new for 2014.  With new muscular definition on the exterior and luxurious comfort on the interior, the Silverado is designed to do it all, at home and work, from dawn till dusk.  On the interior, the crew cab doors are larger, easing entry and exit.  The new hood features twin power domes to manage air flow and reduce cabin noise.  Leather seats, increased legroom and other upscale features make the interior feel almost like a small sedan.  Comfort was considered on the exterior as well, with a novel new addition to the bumper called a CornerStep.  A cutout foothold and handhold on each rear corner makes climbing in and out of the bed a breeze for men, children and women -- even while wearing high heels!  Many new exterior body details were also added to improve aerodynamics, and the stronger foundation and redesigned box bring the Silverado's towing capacity to a best-in-class 11,500 pounds.  Even with three cab, box and trim configurations, and the slew of all-new features, the 2014 Silverado will carry its base pricing over from 2013.  The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is available now, with a premium model, the High Country, debuting later this year.  Don't miss them at the 2014 Denver Auto Show!

Which one of these powerful cars has been eating their spinach lately?  Check them all out and decide for yourself at the Auto Show!

2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE copyChevrolet Camaro: Highly customizable, the Camaro is offered in a variety of packages based on the focus of the buyer.  The road-racing-inspired 1LE model has been updated for 2013 with track-ready features.  All SS models now offer variable-effort electric power steering and a dual-mode exhaust system, both of which were introduced on the Camaro ZL1.

 

 

2012ChevroletCamaro-ZL1-009 copyChevrolet Camaro ZL1:  Now available as a convertible for those who desire a highway blowout, this supercharged Camaro achieves 580-horsepower.  Billed as an “everyday supercar,” it boasts 0-60 mph in four seconds, a top speed of 184 mph, and it lapped the Nürburgring in 7:41.27.  The ZL1 name is derived from the all-aluminum racing engine of the same name, which was developed and installed into a handful of regular-production Camaros (69 total) in 1969.

 

 

2012-corvette-zr1-03025 copyChevrolet Corvette ZR1: The fastest production model ever offered by General Motors, with a top speed of 205 mph, the ZR1 is the ultimate expression of Corvette’s technology-driven performance legacy.  Even more exciting than its production specs is the fact that customers who opt for the Corvette Engine Build Experience can participate in the assembly of their engine at the General Motors Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan.

 

 

2013 Dodge Charger Daytona 2 copy

Dodge Charger: The Charger is efficient and smooth; paired with the award-winning 292 horsepower 3.6-liter aluminum Pentastar V-6 engine, new models with eight-speed automatic transmission deliver refinement, improved performance and best-in-class 31 mpg (highway).  That transmission debuted on the Charger in 2012, and was the first of its kind among domestic sport sedans.

 

 

2012 Dodge Challenger RT  copyDodge Challenger: Delivering an impressive 27 mpg (highway) for its 305-375 horsepower, the Challenger’s 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine is legendary.  The iconic muscle car offers unique exterior personalization, and three specifically engineered suspension and wheel and tire combinations: sport-tuned, performance-tuned, and Super Track Pak.  This detailed architecture results in impressive ride and handling, and braking performance.

 

 

2013 Ford MustangBoss302 01 HR copyFord Mustang: One awesome new feature for 2013 is a 4.2-inch LCD screen loaded with Track Apps, which enable the driver to monitor performance measures such as g-forces and shows acceleration and braking times.  Additionally, the Ford SYNC connectivity system now comes standard on the Mustang Boss 302.

   

First Drive: 2013 Scion FR-S & Subaru BRZ

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Thursday, 27 December 2012 10:22

Years of collaboration between Subaru and Toyota have resulted in the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, a standout for both manufacturers.  The mechanical twins feature a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-4 engine that sends 200 horsepower to the rear wheels only.  The engine is mounted extremely low, giving the car a dynamically low center of gravity comparable to some exotic supercars.  They are rear-wheel drive and feature a 2.0-liter horizontally opposed "boxer" four-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic with steering wheel shift paddles and rev-matched downshifts is optional.  These twins are fraternal, however, as each manufacturer offers slightly different features and small styling cues.  For Subaru, the lightweight sports coupe is the only front-wheel-drive vehicle offered in the United States, bringing a sporty flair to its lineup.  For Scion, the FR-S, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport, is an excellent addition to its youth-targeted audience.  The FR-S starts at $25,255, while the BRZ is $25,495.  Both achieve a combined MPG rating of about 25/30.  Compare and contrast this exciting joint development at the Show!

Cadillac’s new compact sedan is the first vehicle to be built on GM’s new Alpha RWD platform.  The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a five-passenger, luxury-oriented sport sedan that is offered in four trim levels: base, Luxury, Performance and Premium. Inside its cabin, the 2013 Cadillac ATS boasts a variety of high-quality materials, including tasteful wood and metallic accents. The available CUE infotainment interface features large icons and operates like an iPhone or iPad, which is to say it operates by tapping, flicking, swiping or spreading your fingers -- making it familiar for many users.  Don't miss it at the show this year!
