Chevy Sonic X-Country Adventure of Firsts: Beeline for the Four Corners
After leaving the sprawling city limits of Las Vegas, we made a mad dash for the Four Corners Monument, the quadripoint at which the states of Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico meet. En route, we hit such colorful towns as Mesquite, NV, Colorado City, AZ, Fredonia, AZ, and too many others to count.
We spent about eight hours racing the sun in order to get to the Four Corners so we could be the first Chevy Sonic to be in four states at once. And, you know what, we did it! Well, sort of... We arrived at the Four Corners Monument just after dark, but we're still keepin' that one as a first!
Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets
from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the
"master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to
the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint,
Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition
with their famous sitdown strikes.
Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally,
and socially significant" films.

SEMA 2011: Behind The Scenes with Sonic Insider
After whipping some Sonics around at the GM Media Drive, we made a beeline
for the Las Vegas Convention Center, which was still being prepped for
today's SEMA 2011 kick-off. Our man on the spot, SonicInsider.com's own,
photog extraordinaire, Lucas Priamo, took us behind the scenes for a quick
look at what was to come...
2014 Ford Fiesta vs Chevy Sonic Turbo vs the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Review ( Part 1)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic turbo are small economy cars that almost directly
compete. Of course the difference is that the Fiesta is normally aspirated
while the sonic has a small turbo. How
does this effect a cars performance when the road gets steep, the altitude
get hight and the car is loaded to the rafters with with people? 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 a small economy car like the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the
Chevy Sonic turbo.

Chevy Sonic at the 2012 Rolex 24
Well, this past weekend we took a trip to the 50th Anniversary of the Rolex
24 at Daytona. After all, 24 Hours of unfettered, non-stop Grand Am racing
action sounded just like the diversion we needed. Upon arrival, we
carefully selected our set-up spot (not so easy, story for another time),
set up camp-- then quickly broke camp-- in search of some serious
race-infused entertainment. It was long before lo' and behold, a full-on
bow tie bonanza, replete with Sonic at center stage!

2011 SEMA Feature Profile: Chevrolet Sonic Boom Concept
The Sonic has been represented in serious numbers at SEMA 2011. Chevy spent
a lot of time working with partners to build custom cars, but also designed
a few serious gems of their own. One thing Chevy knew they needed was a
Sonic that would really go "boom!" and hence the Sonic Boom Concept was
The Sonic Boom features a 4,000 watt audio system by Kicker® Performance
Audio, custom 19" wheels, Z-Spec Concept Ground Effects, Grille and
Spoiler, along with an Anodized Flat Red paint job. A custom "Panic Button"
on the front dash activates the Sonic Boom's jet engine- inspired audio
system, opens the trunk and back doors while droppin' the hardcore bass on
any innocent bystanders.
I caught up with Rob Cameron of the Chevrolet Design Team on Monday night
and had him tell us a little about the car. Check the video out (you know
the drill) after the jump!
