2014 Chevy Silverado & GMC Sierra details, Hyundai considers trucks, Scion goes upscale - video news
GM shares details of the 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups,
Hyundai may make a move into pickup trucks and Scion may move up the price
Over the past decade, Hyundai has overhauled its entire lineup and added an
entry into practically every vehicle segment ... except one -- pickup
trucks. Now, the Korean automaker is considering pulling up next to Ford,
Chevy, Ram and the others in the real-work world.
The head of Hyundai's international sales told our sister publication,
Automotive News, that the automaker is actively looking at a truck for the
U.S. market. And Hyundai's U.S. dealers have been asking for one.
One challenge would be where to build it. Trucks imported to the U.S. get
hit with a tax. And Hyundai's U.S. plant in Alabama is already running flat
out building Sonatas and Elantras. Maybe they could borrow some of the
extra capacity at Toyota's Tundra facility in Texas.
What to do with Scion? That's the question inside Toyota Motor Sales these
days. The brand was launched 10 years ago to attract young buyers to
Toyota. But prices have gone up and the vehicle lineup has gotten stale.
One possible answer? Move Scion up the price ladder to compete against
near-luxury brands such as Mini and the new crop of affordable European
cars like the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The FR-S sports car is already pushing
Scion near the $30,000 price bracket and a convertible version, which is
expected, could touch that milepost.
Toyota execs acknowledge that Scion needs a new direction. But which way to
go is still being debated.
Finally for today, GM is ready to get its new pickups on the road. The
redesigned 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra debuted in January. There
are plenty of changes inside and under the skin, but the new trucks look
pretty similar to the old trucks.
On Monday, GM said the new Silverado will also have the same base price as
the old truck: $24,585. The new Sierra gets a mild price bump to $25,085.
Those prices are for trucks with the new base V6. But GM will launch the
trucks with its new 5.3-liter V8 and brag that the engine, with a six-speed
automatic transmission, tops the EcoBoost V6-powered Ford F-150 in fuel economy.
GM says its rear-drive V8-powered trucks will get 19 mpg combined, while
the EcoBoost F-150 gets 18 mpg
combined. That's not much of a difference, but you don't need much to do
battle in the pickup wars.
We'll see you again tomorrow. Until then, enjoy the drive.

The Corvette Stingray is revealed in Detroit - Autoweek TV with Greg Migliore
The 2014 Corvette Stingray goes on sale this fall. You heard me right, for
the first since 1976 a Vette will use the famous Stingray name.
Under the hood is an all-aluminum 6.2-liter V8 pushing out 450 hp. You can
pair that with a six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual.
Stylewise, this looks a bit like the 2009 Corvette Stingray concept. Look
closely, and you'll see the taillights and rear windows are big departures
from the past.
But really, the show is about more than the Corvette. There are plenty of
major reveals already.
More details on the Corvette Stingray:
Let's check out the Mercedes CLA. This car goes on sale this fall, and it's
a huge deal for Mercedes. It'll cost about $30,000, and runs a 208-hp turbo four-cylinder engine. The style is
what makes this car different. Some say it's a baby CLS.
Details on the CLA:
We can't forget Lincoln. The MKC concept is out, and it's a good-looking
prototype. We're talking an expansive glass roof, curvy wheel arches, big
wheels and a pretty blinged-out grille. Look for a production version in
Details on the MKC:
Speaking of luxury, the Infiniti Q50 is out. It's replacing the G sedan
with new style, steering systems and a new name.

Top 10 Trucks Video Review - Autobytel's Best Pickup Trucks in America
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/trucks/ For over 100 years pickup trucks
have been a staple for America's workforce. But in recent years, trucks
have evolved more into lifestyle vehicles. These Top 10 Trucks are the
perfect balance between utility and everyday needs. Today the best trucks
have more features and are more comfortable than many cars on the road.
This echo's the notion that a pickup truck can appeal to a wide range of
people, not just those wearing a tool belt.
10) Chevrolet Colorado
If you desire a compact American pickup truck your options are limited.
Thankfully Chevy makes just such a truck called the Colorado. This durable
and reliable little truck has built up a solid reputation over the past
couple of years resulting in it pick as a best pickup.
9) Nissan Frontier http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/frontier/
Formerly known as the Nissan Hardbody, the Frontier has come full circle in
delivering what America needs in these tough economic times: a compact
truck that is inexpensive to buy and inexpensive to own. The Frontier
pickup truck offers multiple configurations to suit your cargo and
8) Toyota Tacoma http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tacoma/
Sometimes overshadowed by the Tundra, the Toyota Tacoma is the vehicle that
put Japan on the map as far as pickup trucks go. The Tacoma is a Top 10
truck because it's built on a very solid foundation.
7) Nissan Titan http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/nissan/titan/
Nissan was the first company to incorporate a 300 horsepower engine into their
pickups. The V-8 Titan is the largest truck you can buy from Nissan and
this pickup proves to be a very solid choice making this list of Top 10.
6) RAM 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/ram/1500/
For many years the RAM was the ugly step child to Ford and Chevy trucks.
But over the last few years, Dodge has been paying close attention to just
how owners use their pickups. Now the RAM is one of the most versatile and
functional trucks on the market. This Best Truck choice is so popular that
the Chrysler Group has made the RAM division into its own brand.
5) GMC Sierra 1500 http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/gmc/sierra-1500/
GMC has done an excellent job of distinguishing itself from Chevy by
labeling their trucks "professional grade." Perception has become reality
and today the GMC Sierra is seen as a high end truck to most consumers. The
GMC Sierra is one of the Best Trucks you can buy.
4) Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The Battle between Ford and Chevy remains strong and is most prevalent in
the war for Best Pickup Truck. While Ford may have an edge due to the newer
body style, for some owners it's still Chevrolet or nothing. Despite its
age the Chevy Silverado 1500 still remains both a workhorse and a good
3) GMC Sierra 2500HD http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/gmc/sierra-2500hd/
The HD designation stands for Heavy Duty and the GMC Sierra 2500HD is as
tough as they come. Whether you opt for the turbo-diesel engine of the gasoline powered motor;
the Sierra in HD format is all about towing and hauling. This is the truck
for those who are serious about pickups. The Sierra HD is one of the
toughest trucks on this Top 10 list.
2) Toyota Tundra http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/toyota/tundra/
If there is one word to describe Toyota's commitment to making the best
pickup truck in America: it's relentless. Toyota knew that in order to
compete with the big 3, it needed to not only build a great truck, but they
needed to build it here on American soil. Built in San Antonio Texas, the
Tundra offers the perfect balance between drivability and capability.
1) Ford F-150 EcoBoost
Ford's EcoBoost engine technology
consists of direct injection and twin-turbochargers have proven effective in the line-up
of cars, and now we find this engine making its way onto more F-150 trucks.
Essentially this engine gives you V-8 power combined with the fuel economy
of a V-6. This EcoBoost engine out
powers many V-8 engines on the market with 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of
torque while still getting the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid full
sized pickup truck. On top of all that great technology, the Ford F-150
looks great. The exterior styling and wonderful interior hits the mark
making this pickup our pick for the Top Truck in America.
