Rumorpile: What To Expect In Scion's Lineup

Jul 29 2014 01:45 PM | Scion News
Scion has a very questionable future in the U.S. as some of their lineup continues to get older and sales continue to slump. New products are desperately needed and according to Automotive News, new products are coming.

The changes to Scion's lineup begin later this year as the slow-selling iQ city car will say goodbye. Through June, Scion has only moved 1,227 iQs, down 47 percent when compared to last year.

Then in the spring of 2015, the long-running xB will sent to the great cardboard-box in sky and in its place will be Toyota Auris. The Golf-sized hatchback uses the same platform as the current Corolla. Following the Auris in the fall will be the xD replacement, a sedan variant of the next-generation Mazda2.

Rumorpile: GM Puts Next-Generation Pickups On Rush

Jul 29 2014 09:25 AM | GM News
General Motors has put a rush on the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra to counter Ford's F-150. According to Reuters, GM has pushed up the launch date of their next-generation pickups, codenamed T1XX, by nine months to the fall of 2018. The new trucks will undergo a diet much like the new F-150. Full-size SUVs will follow a year after.

While this will trail the next F-150 by four years, supplier sources says GM has a lot in store for its next-generation trucks, including a ten-speed automatic being jointly developed with Ford, direct-injection, turbocharging, and auto stop/start technologies.

In the meantime, some of GM's current trucks and SUVs will get an eight-speed automatic.
