GM and Nissan team up on new van project

General Motors has announced that it has entered the competition in the small van market with a new version of a commercial vehicle produced by Nissan. Chevrolet will call the van the City Express and it's a revised Nissan NV200 van. The Nissan and Chevrolet tie up will help the two companies compete against Ford with the success of its smaller Transit Connect van used by businesses around the country.

Chevrolet will sell the van to individual customers and fleet buyers. Individual customers who use these vehicles typically own businesses doing things such as delivering flowers, plumbers, or contractors. This is a new segment for GM to compete with Nissan and Ford.

USA Today reports that Ford created the segment with its popular Transit Connect that is sort of like a combination between a car and a truck. The Chevrolet version of Nissan van gets an entirely new front end design and a five-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Fiat is launching the latest variation of its well-proven—and well-worn—”Cinquecento” theme with the 500X, which makes its public debut at the Paris auto show.

GM Announces Performance Times for 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Oct 1 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

We spend a lot of time at Cars.com dissecting the practicalities of SUVs and family sedans, but sometimes track numbers are just too overthetop to go unshared. We’re at the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s fall rally in Joliet, Ill., and GM just laid down some astonishing numbers on the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The 650-horsepower, supercharged Z06 hits 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and scorches the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds — with the manual transmission. ...

Top 10 Best-Selling Cars: September 2014

Oct 1 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

The kids went back to school, the leaves began to change colors and car shoppers in September sent new-car sales from the largest seven automakers up about 10 percent versus a depressed September 2013. That made for some significant reshuffling in the top 10 sellers. As Toyota Camry shoppers await the updated 2015 model, the Honda Accord spent its second month as America's best-selling sedan, and the Ford Escape broke in to the top 10 sellers for the fi ...

GM has officially detailed performance specs of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and just as we expected, its supercharged 6.2-litre V8 is quite fast. Equipped with the new eight-speed automatic and Z07 performance package — which adds Brembo carb0n-ceramic brakes, a handful of aerodynamic tweaks and a set of super-sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires — GM says the Corvette Z06 can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in only 2.95 seconds. Opt for the seven-speed automatic and ...
