Valet Mode on 2014 Chevrolet Impala Protects Your Wallet and Your Data

PIN protection for your wallet and your infotainment system data

Chevrolet has announced that its 2014 Impala will have an interesting valet mode on vehicles equipped with the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system. This valet mode will provide drivers with a place to lock up small belonging such as smartphones, wallets, and other items behind the systems LCD touchscreen. The items are only accessible when the proper four digit number is entered on the touchscreen.

Entering that correct four digit number will also unlock the data saved inside the infotainment system. When locked, unauthorized people won't be able to access your phone numbers or addresses stored in the infotainment system. The cubbyhole for storing items is located behind the eight-inch screen in the center stack the vehicle.

Chevrolet says that the system is similar to hotel safes and it sounds like a very interesting idea. Chevrolet cleared the space for storage inside the vehicle by moving the infotainment system electronics from behind the touchscreen to a different part of the car.

How To Ruin A Corvette Stingray, By SEMA And The KISS Frontman

Nov 4 2014 8:45pm CST | Source: Jalopnik

I think the show cars from SEMA only really work when they go all-in. The ridiculous shaggin' wagon and sword-filled concepts from Scion? You're doing it right! The ultra-conservative paint jobs on the Chevrolet cars ? You're doing ...

Filed under: Motorsports, SEMA Show, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing, Autoblog Black Chevy introduced the fourth generation of its COPO Camaro at the SEMA show today; another limited run muscle car that should set drag racing fans' mouths to salivating.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible: First Test Numbers with GM’s In-House Octo-cog Automatic

Nov 4 2014 3:28pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

No sports car should have chrome wheels. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible you see here does. It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette. The new transmission has two things going for it: First, it has more speeds in an era where more is more, and ...

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet When a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum opened up in Bowling Green, KY and gobbled up eight important examples of the American sports car in February, videos almost made it look like the hole picked the perfect spot to do the most damage to as many vehicles as possible.

Love Guns: Jimmie Johnson’s SEMA Corvette Is More KISS-tastic than Paul Stanley’s

Nov 4 2014 2:52pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

It’s not SEMA without eleventy-jillion styles of rolling stock, booths stocked with scantily-clad ladies who may or may not have other gigs in the Las Vegas “hospitality” industry, and, of course, good old Yankee V-8 power. The last item is, after all, the fundament upon which the show was founded in 1967. An era before VTEC. Hell, it was an era before CVCC. Thusly, at the intersection of the Chevy small-block, NASCAR, and good ol’ fashioned Sin City glitz, we f ...
