Regal GS has three modes. Normal, Sport, GS. GS mode will send a majority of the torque to the rear wheels.

That's a very good thing. That'll shut a lot of people up.

Nope, no surprise at Chevy press conf.

Officially worst Day 1 ever. Shaping up to be a very underwhelming Detroit Show, though I'm excited to see the XTS concept tomorrow.

I've seen the pics of the XTS. I'm going to tell you all right now, give it at least 30 minutes before you draw your conclusions.

So XTS won't be unveiled until tommorow or later?

If there's a midnight embargo on the PR, then we'll see it right after midnight eastern time.

Otherwise, I'd say we'll be waiting until the Cadillac PC tomorrow.

Overall, pretty sub-par Day 1.

Uh oh...Perhaps it's better looking in person...

As for today, it was all about the Focus. I think a lot of the other automakers wanted to hold off on their big products as to not be overshadowed by Ford.
