2014 GMC Sierra SLT Walk Around
The 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is a full-size, light-duty pickup truck offered in
regular, extended, and crew cab body styles. It is completely redesigned
for 2014, equipped with a choice between three new engines, and offered
with several options that are new to the Sierra lineup.
"Our engineers and designers left nothing on the table when developing this
latest Sierra pickup," said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing.
"These trucks have all the power and capability that's expected in today's
market, excellent fuel efficiency, plus a lot of unexpected, purposeful
features developed with truck owners in mind."
The 2014 Sierra Crew Cab goes on sale in the spring of 2013, with regular-
and extended-cab models following shortly thereafter.
The new 2014 Sierra 1500 is offered with a choice of a 4.3-liter V-6,
5.3-liter V-8, or a 6.2-liter V-8 engine, all equipped with direct fuel
injection, variable valve timing, and GM's proprietary Active Fuel
Management technology that shuts off half of the engine's cylinders under
low-load driving conditions to conserve fuel.
Perhaps in reference to the 2013 Ram 1500's new 3.6-liter V-6 engine,
Jordan Lee, powertrain chief engineer for the new Sierra, said: "Rather
than adapting a V-6 intended for use in passenger cars, we built a new
engine from the ground up based on the unique demands of a truck. Sierra's
4.3-liter V-6 shares its basic design architecture with the latest
iterations of the V-8 engines that GMC owners have trusted for
All three of the Sierra's new engines develop more horsepower and more torque
than the engines they replace, and are more fuel efficient. Final power,
payload and tow ratings will be available when the new Sierra debuts at the
Detroit Auto Show in January 2013.
A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard, and includes a new Cruise
Grade Braking feature. Electric steering, new DuraLife brake rotors, and a
stiffer suspension with aluminum upper and lower front control arms are
also included on the 2014 Sierra.

2014+ Supra Concept? The Lexus LF-LC 500HP Hybrid Concept Car.
This concept causes one to wonder if the Supra will return in the near
future. Even though I am not personally a Toyota fan, a Supra return would
be quite exciting!
Lexus has been taking a new direction with its designs as evidenced by the
new GS not to mention the wild LF-A supercar. The LF-LC—a seductive
design study—looks to top the list with its dynamic, angular yet fluid
bodylines, and is being conceptualized as 2+2 hybrid sports offering. We
like the car's glass-to-glass roof pillar, something Lexus says has never
been done before. And when you have 'taillamps inspired by jet
afterburners' you're setting serious performance expectations. The LF-LC
works on many fronts and there have been whisperings (and back-channel
rumors of a Supra comeback) that the car might include a hybrid drivetrain.
You have to admit the LF-LC's silhouette does a lot more than hint at the
Checking out an LS7 2012 COPO Camaro #28
In this video we take a look at one of the most bad ass Camaros to ever roll off of the
For too long, Chevy has sat on the sidelines watching as Dodge and Ford,
especially Ford, dominated in Stock Eliminator and Super Stock. The Cobra
Jet and the Drag Pak have been proven winners in these NHRA classes for
years. Bowtie fans have long wondered if Chevy would ever have an answer to
the bad-ass factory-built race cars of its Detroit neighbors. That answer
is finally coming. The Cobra Jet and the Drag Pak are no pushovers, though,
so the new COPO Camaro
will definitely have its work cut out.
The COPO Camaro's
biggest threat, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet started at $91,900
in 2012 and boasts a supercharged 5.4L V8 under the hood, while the $39,999
2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak sports a 6.1L Hemi. For 2011, though, the
Mopar Challenger Drag Pak upgraded drastically to a naturally aspirated
512ci V10 and upped the pricetag to $85,512. The 2012 COPO Camaro, starting at $89,000, has
three engine options to choose from: a naturally aspirated 427ci V8, a
327ci V8 with a 2.9L Supercharger, and a
327ci V8 with a 4.0L Supercharger. All
of the Big Three's race cars are stripped-out versions of their former
selves and are built to run in the NHRA. They are all sold race-ready and
come complete with everything from roll cages to fuel cells in the trunk.

This is a video of us riding our Gold Wings through the entire length of
