Fiat, Nissan squabble over ugly cars - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
Also in this episode: BMW announces the M6 Gran Coupe, and Bentley takes
overheated press-release language to a new level.
-- BMW will build an M6 Gran Coupe.
-- Fiat and Nissan fight like eighth-grade girls.
-- And Bentley speaks the language of success.
I'm Rory, it's Wednesday and I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in
10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and
If you've been lusting after a BMW M5, but you . . . If you want an M5, but
it isn't, uhhh. Oh. If you want an M6, but you want four doors, but you
don't want an M5 . . . Well, BMW is making an M6 Gran Coupe, because
they'll be able to sell it for more than a regular Gran Coupe, and because
people will buy it. Mechanically, it will be identical to the M5—so
560hp, a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 and
automatic transmissions only.
For more info on the M6:
Fiat and Nissan engaged in an eighth-grade slap-fight over who builds the
uglier car, last week. It all started when Fiat's Olivier Francois said,
"Isn't ugliness the worst pollution of all?" during the Fiat 500e-focused
portion of his remarks at a Fiat LA Auto Show press conference, which was
nearly 25-minutes long and was mostly taken up by bleakly sophomoric
Fiat's Matt Davis correctly recited a similar talking point later, but
neither actually mentioned Nissan, who must have assumed that Francois'
ugliness remarks referred to the Nissan Leaf.
Speaking to Automotive News, Nissan's Simon Sproule said, "Let's face it,
Fiat has not shied away from controversial styling themselves. Many would
describe many of their products as visual pollution. Take a long, hard look
at the Fiat Doblo." Then, he looked up at a colleague and asked if he'd
managed to say the word "many" enough times to satisfy the terms of their
bet. Oddly, no one mentioned the Fiat Multipla.
And, finally, Bentley sent us a press release this morning with the
headline "New Bentley brand identity speaks language of success."
Here's a game. It's called guess what this press release is about.
Is it A. That VW is making Bentley communicate only in German from now on.
B. They're rearranging their brand around a voice-activated infotainment
system. C. Bentley is releasing a new line of "successories" for business
people. Or D. They've redesigned their lobby in Crewe.
The answer is D.
And that's the news.
We'll be back tomorrow, but until then, check out our other videos on
YouTube and on autoweek.com.

Design Forum is coming up fast.
-- GM shows off its new trucks.
-- Jaguar cancels its supercar.
-- And it's time again for the Autoweek Design Forum.
I'm Natalie with a Friday edition of Autoweek TV.
General Motors yesterday revealed the redesigned 2014 Chevy Silverado and
GMC Sierra. Upgrades include a stiffer frame and cab and a revamped
interior with video screens and wireless connectivity. Three engines will
be offered: a 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8 and the new 6.2-liter LT1.
Cylinder deactivation will conserve fuel on all models, and six-speed
automatics will be standard. We'll see the Sierra and Silverado in Detroit
For more details on the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra:
Jaguar said it will not build the C-X75 supercar due to the economic
downturn in Europe. Last May, the plan was to build 250 examples at a cost
of about $1.5 million each. It was slated to have a 1.6-liter gasoline
engine with electric motors at the wheels. Top speed was set for more than
200 mph. It would have been up against tough competition, including the
Porsche 918, Ferrari Enzo replacement and the McLaren P1.
For more info on the Jaguar C-X75:
And our annual Design Forum takes place on January 17th. This year's guests

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
5.3 liter V-8 makes 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. or
6.2 liter V-8 numbers have not been released
The fuel economy figures are also unknown since this pickup truck is brand
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.

Top 10 Trucks Video Review - Autobytel's Best Pickup Trucks in America
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/trucks/?id=32972 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
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/?id=32972
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/?id=32972
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/?id=32972
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
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
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/?id=32972
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.
