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

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.

Lamborghini stops selling cars in Iran - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
As if living under brutally oppressive theocratic regime wasn't bad enough,
now Iranians won't be able to buy Lamborghinis. Bowing to pressure from an
organization called "United against a Nuclear Iran," Lamborghini will stop
selling cars in the Islamic Republic.
Iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon has led to some tough sanctions, but
many analysts expect that the weapons program will now be abandoned in
order to restore the flow of Aventadors into Tehran.
BMW is pressing ahead with a plan to build a car to correspond to every
digit. Early this week at the Detroit auto show, they showed off a new
4-Series, which is of course, a coupe version of the three series. Rumor
has it that the Bavarians are working on a 9-Series, which will be a
6-wheeled garbage truck. An unnamed BMW executive was quoted as saying, "We
would not develop anything less than the most sporting, dynamic multi-ton
Details on the M6 Gran Coupe, 4-series coupe debut at Detroit auto show:
And finally, if you guessed that Sergio Marchionne was the auto-exec that
dropped an ethnic slur during the Detroit auto show, you'd be correct. In
explaining why the Alfa 4C would be delayed, Marchionne said, "With all due
respect to my American friends, it needs to be a Wop engine," That was
followed by a few moments of silent discomfort by the assembled press
Anyway, that's the news. We'll be back tomorrow, but until then check out
our related videos at Autoweek.com and on youtube. As always, enjoy the

Ford Ranger im Test: Offroad ein echter Kerl
Endlich -- werden sich die deutschen Ranger-Fans denken -- ist es vorbei
mit der biederen Optik des Pick-ups von Ford. Beim neuen Ranger sieht man

meistverkaufte Pick-up-Baureihe darstellt. Unser Testfahrer Christian Jehle

Prototypes Revealed: Jeep J-12 Concept
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Chances are that Jeep will most likely never
build the J-12 Concept small pick-up but that doesn't mean that we didn't
ant to drive it. When Jeep offered TFLcar the chance to drive the Jeep J-12
Concept for a second time in Telluride, Colorado we jumped at the chance.
OK, so we couldn't exactly take it up a mountain but Nathan had to chance
to recall what it was like when small pickups still roamed the wild in
America by driving this customized Jeep and speaking with guys designers
who helped create a very retro and very fun Jeep pickup.
