2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 aims at the Boss 302

Track day beast!

Although I've owned more Ford Mustangs any other vehicle in my life, I'm not really a Ford person. I like all kinds of vehicles, I just happen to like reasonably priced American muscle. There were some things about the new Camaro but I didn't like which left me purchasing a Ford. I am very interested in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

This isn't like the Z/28 of the late 80s and 90s, this new Z/28 is a naturally aspirated American muscle car designed specifically for track day enthusiasts. Chevrolet calls this the ultimate track-capable Camaro. The vehicle uses a high revving dry-sump LS7 with carbon-ceramic brakes and fluid coolers specifically made for track work.

The only potential downside to this car is that it has a stripped-down interior that may make it uncomfortable for some drivers. The car is also light with a curb weight by 300 pounds less than other Camaros in the line and has a special tracking suspension and aerodynamic treatments. The engine produces 500 hp and 470 pound-foot of torque. Pricing is unannounced, but if those carbon ceramic brakes are standard you can bet this will be the most expensive Camaro in the line.

New Honda HR-V, 2016 Acura ILX to Debut at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

Oct 20 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: Cars.com

Honda and its Acura luxury division plan to debut at least two vehicles at next month's 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. One is Honda's latest — and smallest — SUV, the HR-V; the first exterior images of the tiny crossover appeared last April. As we expected, Honda says the Fit-based HR-V will slot below the popular CR-V, which means it should compete against a burgeoning segment of entry-level crossovers like the Nissan Juke and Chevrolet Trax. Honda also confirmed th ...
