  1. 16 exterior colors, 6 interior colors, 0-60 under three seconds. Under $60,000 base price.
  2. Well, what do you think of the 2020 #Corvette?

  3. The time has come for the Corvette to mid-engine architecture. Powering the Corvette is a 6.2 liter V8 LT2 making and SAE certified 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque when equipped with an optional exhaust system. In Z51 form, the car is expected to hit 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. The base output of the engine has not been revealed yet. The LT2 engine is based on the LT1 with a new aluminum block. This new engine features a dry-sump oiling system and three scavenger pumps to fight oil starvation in high-G maneuvers on a track. People looking for three pedals will be disappointed to find that no manual transmission will be offered. Instead an 8-speed dual clutch automatic will take over shifting duties and likely execute them faster than any human could. The DCT is setup with a low first gear for quick take off and tall seventh and eighth for fuel economy. The gears in between are close ratio to keep the engine strongly in the power band. Those who want a removable roof will be happy to find that option still there and can be stored in the rear compartment. There will be 3 interior seat options, six interior colors, six seat-belt colors, and two optional stitching packages. The suspension is a double-wishbone design with oil over dampers, while the Z51 package gets magnetic ride control. A front lift system can lift the nose and use GPS to mark the location where you lifted the nose for future use. An electric brake system is more precise and is tunable by the driver. All Stingrays get an electronic limited-slip differential. The front trunk and rear trunk combined can handle 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The structure of the Stingray built from high-pressure diecast aluminum and has a carbon fiber rear bumper. Pricing will start at less than $60,000. View full article

  5. Not deplete the battery, just pull back from the full almost 2,000 horsepower.
  6. I think GM is returning to its roots of using the same platform for a gazillion different vehicles that really aren't that different when you boil them down. Blazer, Traverse, Enclave, Acadia, XT5, XT6.... and now there's word of another Buick SUV coming between Enclave and Envision. Trailblazer, Trailblazer EXT, Envoy, Envoy EXT, Envoy XUT, Ascender, Bravada, Rainier, 9-7x
  7. Yeah, it's released tonight at 10:00pm my time.
  8. @dfelt It's not like it doesn't say hybrid on the side..... oh wait! It does!
  9. To be fair, I didn't shoot any of the video. It is simply B-Roll video (no audio, panoramic shots provided by Lincoln) that I edited into my own. I added a few photographs, the music, and the voiceover naturally.
  10. Not too bad for a mid-size car with AWD, Active Cruise, and Android Auto/Carplay standard.
  11. Yup, we had our own article on it here. No Model Year 2019 sedan
  12. Lotus has been sold around to different companies a few times. They finally landed at one with deep pockets. Deep as in Republic of China deep....
