GM says it wants to sell more the current model

Sources claim that General Motors has decided to delay the launch of its next-generation Chevrolet Cruze by one year. According to the source, the delay is to allow Chevrolet to make some changes to the vehicle and allow it to squeeze additional sales from the current vehicle. The next generation Cruze had been set to debut in late 2014.

However, the sources indicate that production of the new vehicle won't begin until December of 2015. GM maintains that the current vehicle is still selling well.

GM says that the next generation Cruze will get a complete redesign and will feature a larger trunk and more space inside. The next generation also promises improved fuel economy. Sales of the Cruze in the US were up almost 17% for the first six months of 2013.

SUV Review: 2015 Lincoln MKC

Aug 1 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Respect is typically the most sparsely gifted of all human qualities, doled out so infrequently that it makes altruism, charity and benevolence seem as common as the trinkets at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box. Rodney couldn’t get any (no matter how much he made us laugh). Aretha had to spell it out letter by letter that women of her era might finally demand some. And Stephen Harper has been the freakin’ prime minister of Canada for a ...

Many of you might have seen these pictures already. That’s because they’re incredible, but they’re also very old. These pictures were first posted in 2007 on a Portuguese car forum and then hastily deleted with no information as to where the cars were or why they were left to rot in a barn. These pictures have recently received a second wind of attention and seem to be popping up all over the place with different stories about ...
