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.

Watch This Unstoppable Beater Truck Make A Flood Its Bitch

Aug 28 2014 4:51pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Parts of Colorado were besieged by biblical flood waters in September of 2013. Some how, some way, this old GM made from parts of what looks like at least four different pickups picks the perfect line from one safe spot to another. It's downright inspiring to watch from this aerial perspecti ...

Ram Heavy Duty

Aug 28 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

The Ram Heavy Duty has been around since 1981 when Dodge introduced the three-quarter and one-ton trucks. The Ram was available with an innovative, 5.9-liter, Cummins turbo-diesel, something GM and Ford trucks couldn’t boast. The old Cummins turbo-diesel saw Ram Heavy Duty sales grow, thanks to its direct-injection fuel system, turbocharger, and greater power outputs than the competition.Four generations of trucks later, the ...

Connected Utility Vehicles: Chevy Adds Wireless Charging, 4G LTE to Suburban and Tahoe

Aug 27 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The 2015 Tahoe gets some techy new options this fall. A burbdozer with a V-8 may not be the predominant family vehicle of choice anymore, but Chevrolet still makes a heavy margin on its Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. As such, it behooves GM to keep refining the tech plowed into what’s fundamentally a mid-twentieth-century design. The latest additions to the stalwart duo? OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity, plus wireless mobile-phone charging. GM had already smartly e ...

Cadillac to Debut the ATS-V Sedan at the LA Auto Show

Aug 27 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The ATS-V is one of the more-anticipated Caddys since the completely redesigned CTS made itself seen at the 2013 New York Auto Show. It’s not too hard to predict what this M3/M4 fighter will bring to the party, but there is still a slight debate on what will power it. Essentially everyone agrees that the ATS-V will use the 3.6-liter, twin-boosted V-6 that we all fell in love with in the CTS Vsport, but there is ...
