2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show

http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/ Road Test Editor Benjamin Hunting catches up with Harlan Charles, Corvette Product Manager, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for some excellent insights on the new C7 Stingray. How did you balance the evolution of the design with what people come to expect to see in a Corvette? "We really wanted to create an all new Corvette, every surface, everything people see was intended to be all new but also unmistakably Corvette. In the back of our minds we wanted to bring back the passion of the Stingray; some of the famous Corvettes like the 1959 Corvette racecar designed by Bill Mitchell, or the 1963 split-window. We wanted to bring back some of that passion but necessarily the same design cues. The goal was to create a new Corvette statement going forward that builds on the past but in an entirely new way. So one of the fine balances we did was incorporating a lot of racing technology which you can see in the car via the functional air vents and cooling outlets derived from the racecar while at the same time trying to make the car more sophisticated and upscale." Are we going to see different variations of the Corvette that will allow you to take on higher end GT cars? "Within the new Corvette Stingray line-up we have the Z-51 Performance Package to satisfy those who are looking for more track oriented performance, but then there will be different options at a higher luxury level that can be added on such as faux leather or suede headliner. We are going to have a lot of different ways that you can tailor the car to your needs whether it is more towards the performance end of the spectrum or the luxury GT end. What this will do is not only open the car up to the hard-core performance enthusiasts, but also to those who appreciate cars in general." Will there be additional smaller displacement engines in the future? "I will say the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does have a large displacement 6.2 liter engine, but there is an Eco-Mode with cylinder deactivation which essentially makes the car under certain conditions a 3.1 liter 4-cylinder. With this technology we are allowing people to have the best of both worlds: a large V-8 with 450 ft.-lbs. of torque when you want it and you can also have the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder." The Corvette gets faster with each new generation; will we ever hit a wall in terms of performance? "We keep pushing the technology envelope. On the C6 Corvette, we never thought that the car would make over 630 horsepower in the ZR-1, but we did surpass that figure. And I think the performance will keep on going, people will always want more power and more speed. We are going to keep pushing the envelope as much as we can."

2013 Audi S6 S7 S8 Walkaround with Filip Brabec Director Product Management Luxury Car Video Review
Recently Autobytel caught up with Audi's Product Planning Manager Filip Brabec at the S-Model Launch. Filip was gracious enough to give us a nice thorough overview on all 3 of the new S Models including the S6, S7, and S8. 2013 Audi S6 http://www.autobytel.com/audi/s6/2013/ The 2013 Audi S6 is immediately recognizable as a unique vehicle in Audi's product line thanks to a differentiated grille, new body kit, and oval Exhaust out back. The interior features a lot of new items including sports seats, different trim strategies, and a few unique appointments to remind you this is an S-Model. But really what's key about all 3 vehicles is the unique Bi-turbo V-8 engine which produces 420 horsepower in the S6 and S7 and 520 horsepower in the S8 which has some engine modifications in order to withstand that extra power. Torque also jumps from 407 lb-ft. in the S6 & S7 to 481 lb-ft. in the S8. All three of these S Model vehicles have stunning performance. The 0-60 MPH times for the S6 & S7 are 4.5 seconds with the S8 coming in at 3.9 seconds which is incredible for a luxury automobile. The suspension in these vehicles is an Adaptive Air Suspension System that replaces the springs providing an adjustable ride between comfort and sport. The brakes on the S Model line are also upgraded to larger units. All in all these are really great performing machines. 2013 Audi S7 http://www.autobytel.com/audi/s7/2013/ On the Audi S7 you see the same level of differentiation as mentioned before with the unique grille, lower ground effects kit, and a larger sized 20-inch wheel. The car is lowered by 10mm over the regular A7 and the can be lowered an additional 10mm if you set the ride to Dynamic. This gives the S7 a very sporty ride when you are looking for some spirited driving. Also notice the aluminum optic mirrors that are common to the S Models. Overall the 2013 Audi S7 brings a lot of style together. You can see the car is wider and lower than the regular A6 but most noticeable is the Sportback hatchback design which gives versatility. 2013 Audi S8 http://www.autobytel.com/audi/s8/2013/ The 2013 Audi S8 is really the king of Audi's model line-up. This luxury ride represents the fastest and most powerful sedan every produced by Audi. The 520 horsepower and 0-60 MPH times of 3.9 seconds are amazing for this full-sized vehicle. The power and agility transform the Audi S8 into a top performer. The engine is mated to an 8-Speed Tiptronic transmission that provides and extraordinary performance. Standard features include LED Headlights, 21-inch rims, power seats, and a great interior. Everything comes together in a great package. The Adaptive Air Suspension is continually adjusting to the driver's style. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





2013 Ford Explorer Sport EcoBoost Walkaround & SUV Video Review with Chief Engineer Bill Gubing
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/explorer/2013/ Autobytel recently caught up with the Explorer's Chief Engineer Bill Gubing for some in-depth info on both the appearance aspects and the performance aspects of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport SUV. Up front one of the most notable appearance features is the new front grille. Here we see the contrasting high gloss bars with the low gloss mesh behind that really sets off the front of this vehicle. Ford took the muscular look of the 2011 model and wanted to make the new 2013 model stand out even more. Besides the front grille, Ford created a technical wrap by blacking out the grille, headlights, and also the lower bumper openings. The Explorer name was added to the front of the vehicle for the first time. From the side the large 20-inch wheels with black painted pockets are the first thing you notice. The blacked-out theme continues along the Explorer with blacked-out mirror caps, side skirts, and roof rails. Out back it's more of the same. The taillights have the smoked treatment with the rear diffuser darkened too. The rear eye-catcher though is the dual polished Exhaust tips. Moving to the interior of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport the first thing you notice is the illuminated kick plate. The interior is all about craftsmanship with many upgrades being added to the Sport trim level. The seats have a sienna color insert with contrast stitching. The Explorer design team looked at European Fashion houses and looked at what was coming out in the Leather world to gain some insights into the future of automobile interior surfaces. The trim pieces have a high metallic look that blend nicely with the blacked-out exterior direction. Sony branded audio is standard with HD radio. The Explorer also features the 8-inch touch screen with MyFord Touch. Most SUV buyers can be categorized as those either looking for fuel economy or those looking for power. Ford met the needs of both groups with the different EcoBoost engine options. The 2.0 liter EcoBoost is perfect for the fuel economy minded customer and the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 for those looking for more power. In fact the 3.5 liter turbocharged EcoBoost makes 365 horsepower. There is a ton of power that needed to be effectively put down to the road. This is where the AWD system was completely retuned optimizing for the torque sensing system making sure the power would be put to the pavement. The wheels were widened to 9-inches and wrapped in a performance tire. In regards to vehicle dynamics; the body structure was stiffened via a tower to tower brace and a cross tunnel brace. Overall lateral stiffness was increased by 37%. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray C7 Track Test & First Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/corvette-stingray/2014/ Chevrolet offered a brief meet and greet with their next generation Corvette to a few lucky journalists to kick off this year's Pebble Beach Classic Car Week in Monterey, CA and Autobytel's own Benjamin Hunting was on hand to test out the latest version of America's favorite affordable sports car. The all-new C7 Corvette is not only easy on the wallet, with an as tested price of $53,000 but the new Stingray will be easy on the wallet as well with an EPA estimated 29 MPG on the highway thanks to the new LT1 V8 engine equipped with fuel saving technologies like direct injection and cylinder deactivation. The latter takes advantage of the V8's larger displacement compared to the outgoing LS3, allowing the 2014 Corvette to function as a more effective four cylinder.

2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/corvette/2013/ The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette is the last available car from the C6 model run. Chevrolet has already debuted the new C7 Corvette Stingray and those bow-tie lovers out there are already excited. So what does the last C6 model year have to offer? Well the Grand Sport trim is set above the base model but below the high performance Z06. With the Grand Sport you get more luxury amenities combined with some performance parts from the Z06. The base price on the 2013 Chevy Grand Sport Coupe model is $56,000 with the Convertible model starting at $59,600. For over 60 years the Chevrolet Corvette has been the iconic American sports car. This is the end of the 6th generation Corvette and usually when you get to the end of a vehicle run there are some special editions that debut; and that is what we have here. This is the Corvette Grand Sport and it sits nicely between the base model and the Z06. The Grand Sport may not have the big 7.0 liter V-8 engine the Z06 has but that means the price is also more affordable and the fuel economy is much better at 16 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. According to James Bell of General Motors: "This vehicle represents the send-off for the C6 generation because the all new C7 generation will be on the market pretty soon. What you have here with the Grand Sport is the base model 6.2 liter V-8 engine capable of 430 horsepower and sub 4-second 0-60 MPH runs done up with some cool parts. This car has the graphics package on the side, the gills on the fenders, the rear brake vents, and the Magnetic Ride Suspension which allows this car to corner at over 1.0g." The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is essentially a base model C6 with a lot of Z06 performance, appearance, and handling enhancing parts. Overall the Grand Sport is a great effort but we are all eagerly awaiting the new C7 Corvette Stingray.
