2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 Pickup Truck World Debut Video @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show

http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/?id=32972 In the past the Chevrolet Silverado has sold millions of units making it one of the most popular vehicles in the world. Now at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show; the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado has made its World Debut. This third generation Silverado is set to narrow the gap between itself and the Ford F-150. It has been several years since Chevy gave us a new Silverado model and this pickup truck has been totally redesigned with significant technology and powertrain upgrades. Road Test Editor Benjamin Hunting gives us a nice overview of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, like its mechanical bother the GMC Sierra, are all new for the upcoming model year. These redesigns could not have come soon enough because Chevrolet was starting to lag a little bit behind Ford and Ram in the Technology Sweepstakes in the Full Size truck segment. A lot of changes have occurred on the Z-71 Silverado with a couple of new engine choices. These 3 new engines are similar to the previous models in terms of displacement but now these motors feature direct injection and cylinder deactivation technology. We do not have power figures yet, but there should be significant improvements in both power and fuel economy. GM has been working hard on distinguishing the Silverado from its Sierra brother. This is most evident in terms of the front grilles on the two pickup trucks. From the outside, the Silverado takes classic cues from its past, like the eggplate grille, and merges them with more modern design elements. Overall the truck is similar to the model it is replacing. But the 2014 Chevy Silverado does look a bit more beefed up with more flare in the fenders and more angles all around. On the inside there is a more unique experience between the trucks so that buyers get the sense they are purchasing a unique vehicle. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado now adds the MyLink feature which offers better connectivity with smart phones. The improved gauges and overall updated and upgraded interior gives the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado a better overall package in terms of trims and design. In the full size truck segment, brand loyalty is not guaranteed. Roughly 40% of truck buyers at any given time are looking to switch; based on which vehicle can give them more for their money. With the average age of pickup trucks in the U.S. nearing the 10 year old mark; we are about to see a sweeping number of new pickup truck buyers step into show rooms looking for a new model. This is what Chevrolet is counting on, introducing a newly redesigned Silverado pickup truck that can be competitive with the other trucks in this segment.

2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/?id=32972 Road Test Editor Benjamin Hunting catches up with Harlan Charles, Corvette Product Manager, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for some excellent insights on the new C7 Stingray. How did you balance the evolution of the design with what people come to expect to see in a Corvette? "We really wanted to create an all new Corvette, every surface, everything people see was intended to be all new but also unmistakably Corvette. In the back of our minds we wanted to bring back the passion of the Stingray; some of the famous Corvettes like the 1959 Corvette racecar designed by Bill Mitchell, or the 1963 split-window. We wanted to bring back some of that passion but necessarily the same design cues. The goal was to create a new Corvette statement going forward that builds on the past but in an entirely new way. So one of the fine balances we did was incorporating a lot of racing technology which you can see in the car via the functional air vents and cooling outlets derived from the racecar while at the same time trying to make the car more sophisticated and upscale." Are we going to see different variations of the Corvette that will allow you to take on higher end GT cars? "Within the new Corvette Stingray line-up we have the Z-51 Performance Package to satisfy those who are looking for more track oriented performance, but then there will be different options at a higher luxury level that can be added on such as faux leather or suede headliner. We are going to have a lot of different ways that you can tailor the car to your needs whether it is more towards the performance end of the spectrum or the luxury GT end. What this will do is not only open the car up to the hard-core performance enthusiasts, but also to those who appreciate cars in general." Will there be additional smaller displacement engines in the future? "I will say the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does have a large displacement 6.2 liter engine, but there is an Eco-Mode with cylinder deactivation which essentially makes the car under certain conditions a 3.1 liter 4-cylinder. With this technology we are allowing people to have the best of both worlds: a large V-8 with 450 ft.-lbs. of torque when you want it and you can also have the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder." The Corvette gets faster with each new generation; will we ever hit a wall in terms of performance? "We keep pushing the technology envelope. On the C6 Corvette, we never thought that the car would make over 630 horsepower in the ZR-1, but we did surpass that figure. And I think the performance will keep on going, people will always want more power and more speed. We are going to keep pushing the envelope as much as we can."

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Test Drive & Pickup Truck Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/silverado-1500/2014/?id=32972 The third generation Chevrolet Silverado is here! Practically everything on this full-sized truck has been redesigned, refreshed, and updated. The exterior looks tough, the engines are now more fuel efficient, and the interior is packed full of new technology. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is as capable as ever when it comes to hauling and towing; but now with all the updates and upgrades this pickup truck exceeds all expectations. Base price for the Work Truck Crew Cab model is $31,715 while the top of the line 2LZ 4x4 Crew Cab costs $43,465. When it comes to the full-sized pickup truck game in America there are a handful of contenders but the overwhelming giants in this segment are Ford and Chevrolet. Last year the Silverado sold over 400k units and Chevrolet hopes that the new 2014 model which is bigger and bolder will enjoy the same amount of success. Up front the new 2014 Silverado has a big massive chrome grille that is squared off. The truck looks a lot like the Sierra front end from the third generation. Under the hood there have been massive changes to the engine offerings. While the displacement is relatively the same, the 3 different displacement EcoTec3 engine choices now feature direct injection, variable valve timing, and active fuel management. The result is more horsepower, more torque, and better fuel economy. The engine specs are as follows: 4.3 liter V-6 makes 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft. of torque 5.3 liter V-8 makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. or torque 6.2 liter V-8 numbers have not been released The fuel economy figures are also unknown since this pickup truck is brand new. On the inside, the 2014 Chevy Silverado interior has been given a thorough update and now ranks as the best interior in the full-sized truck category. Higher quality materials and attention to design were the first step. There is a 4" information screen located in the gauge cluster. The steering wheel has controls mounted on it. There is an 8" screen in the center stack that comes equipped with MyLink and the associated apps. Chevrolet has really upped the ante and the seats are yet another bonus. Pricing on the Silverado is about the same as the outbound model from last year. There are 3 cab configurations including the: regular cab, double car, and crew cab. There are 2 bed sizes also ranging from 6' to a 6.5' bed. No matter which trim you pick, the Silverado is a great truck.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Luxury Car U.S. Sneak Preview Video @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/?id=32972 Mercedes gave us a little sneak preview of stunning 4-door coupe dubbed the CLA. This entry-level luxury car features the aggressive and sporty design found on higher end Mercedes vehicles combined with a finely crafted luxury interior; all at a very affordable price tag of around $30,000. The 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class should be hitting dealer showrooms this fall. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class includes many features and options found on much more expensive luxury cars. The engine is a turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic. Outside the aggressive lines are not just for looks; instead they help with the aerodynamics of the car. LED daytime headlights are a staple in the luxury market and the CLA-Class sports some of the most beautiful lights found on any car. The front sport grille is very eyecatching with its silver-tipped studs. The large alloy wheels compliment the rest of the exterior. The 2014 Mercedes CLA is a significant vehicle for the Tri-Star brand. Basically the CLA has the Executive Premium Styling found in the CLS brought down to an entry level luxury car. The Mercedes CLA is the new baby of the bunch; it is essentially a CLS in a smaller package. The exterior is very stunning thanks to the muscular 4-door coupe styling. The CLA has a lot going on, it is very luxurious on the inside and it looks fantastic on the outside. The meat under the hood is a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine pushing out a little over 200 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque. As awesome as the outside is, the interior is an excellent place to be. The gauges look futuristic, the seats are comfortable, and the backseats have plenty of room. All of this adds up to a very impressive package. This might be a very hot seller for Mercedes-Benz. Besides the exterior styling, that wonderful interior, and the excellent engine; is the price which starts at around $30k. This car is a stunner and should hit showrooms later this year.

2013 Ford Explorer Sport EcoBoost Walkaround & SUV Video Review with Chief Engineer Bill Gubing
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/explorer/2013/?id=32972 Autobytel recently caught up with the Explorer's Chief Engineer Bill Gubing for some in-depth info on both the appearance aspects and the performance aspects of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport SUV. Up front one of the most notable appearance features is the new front grille. Here we see the contrasting high gloss bars with the low gloss mesh behind that really sets off the front of this vehicle. Ford took the muscular look of the 2011 model and wanted to make the new 2013 model stand out even more. Besides the front grille, Ford created a technical wrap by blacking out the grille, headlights, and also the lower bumper openings. The Explorer name was added to the front of the vehicle for the first time. From the side the large 20-inch wheels with black painted pockets are the first thing you notice. The blacked-out theme continues along the Explorer with blacked-out mirror caps, side skirts, and roof rails. Out back it's more of the same. The taillights have the smoked treatment with the rear diffuser darkened too. The rear eye-catcher though is the dual polished Exhaust tips. Moving to the interior of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport the first thing you notice is the illuminated kick plate. The interior is all about craftsmanship with many upgrades being added to the Sport trim level. The seats have a sienna color insert with contrast stitching. The Explorer design team looked at European Fashion houses and looked at what was coming out in the Leather world to gain some insights into the future of automobile interior surfaces. The trim pieces have a high metallic look that blend nicely with the blacked-out exterior direction. Sony branded audio is standard with HD radio. The Explorer also features the 8-inch touch screen with MyFord Touch. Most SUV buyers can be categorized as those either looking for fuel economy or those looking for power. Ford met the needs of both groups with the different EcoBoost engine options. The 2.0 liter EcoBoost is perfect for the fuel economy minded customer and the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 for those looking for more power. In fact the 3.5 liter turbocharged EcoBoost makes 365 horsepower. There is a ton of power that needed to be effectively put down to the road. This is where the AWD system was completely retuned optimizing for the torque sensing system making sure the power would be put to the pavement. The wheels were widened to 9-inches and wrapped in a performance tire. In regards to vehicle dynamics; the body structure was stiffened via a tower to tower brace and a cross tunnel brace. Overall lateral stiffness was increased by 37%. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/?id=32972 Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel

2013 Toyota Tundra takes on Ford, Chevy & the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Towing Test ( Episode 1 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow. But is it better than the Ford F-150 and the brand new Chevy Silverado? We decided to find out by putting all three pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup by having them tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel? In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,000 pounds. That's enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow over 7,000 pounds of old American Luxury car 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).
