Take a detailed walkaround of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray with Autoweek technical editor and resident Corvette Expert Dale Jewett. Dale and Autoweek executive creative director Ken Ross get up close and personal with the new C7. They discuss the Stingray's design - how form indeed follows function. Dale covers what's new, what's different, and what's based on the Corvette's storied heritage. The design team and developers consulted with the Corvette Racing ALMS and Le Mans teams. The result - aero, vents and cooling systems that improve efficiency and performance, and keep passengers more comfortable.

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 ladder. 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.

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.
