Chevrolet Impala Grabs Top Spot on Consumer Reports Top Sedans List

New Impala scores big

I'm sure that a lot of people out there would agree that modern Chevrolet Impala sedans have been incredibly boring cars. These cars are more destined for rental fleets than the garages of your average American. However, the significantly redesigned Impala for 2014 recently scored better than all comers to win the top spot among all sedans from Consumer Reports.

The Impala scored 95/99 during the magazine tests placing it in the same realm as Lexus and Jaguar. Consumer Reports says that the new Impala is proof that GM is on the comeback. The older Impala that was replaced scored a scant 63 in the same testing.

The new Impala scored so well that only two vehicles are ahead of it in the Consumer Reports rankings. Those vehicles include the BMW 135i and the Tesla Model S. I still think the car is rather boring even if Consumer Reports likes it.

The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 hasn’t even gone on sale yet but already a crashed example has been spotted.

Chevrolet engineers were testing a yellow Z06 on the notorious German race track ...

Dodge Viper $15,000 Price Cut Boosts Monthly Sales by Nearly 200 Percent—to 108 Cars

Oct 22 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Last month’s decision by Dodge to slash prices on the face-melting Viper by $15,000 seems to be paying huge dividends: Sales of the car jumped by 184 percent in September. That doesn’t mean you’ll be seeing Dodge’s V-10 brute on every street corner, though. That huge percentage jump translates to 108 Vipers sold in September, up from 38 in August. The Viper has never been intended to sell in huge numbers, but 2014 has not been kind to the Mopar snake. Chrysler temporarily halted Viper produc ...

The totally weird and wacky cars of ‘LeMons’

Oct 22 2014 12:51pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

“I have a lot of bad ideas, all the time. This was one of many.” So, how best to describe the twenty-four hours of LeMons? That’s “LeMons,” by the way, not “LeMans.” The latter is a prestigious endurance race with a hundred-year history; the former is basically a good way to end up with tetanus and (despite the citrus-theme) possibly scurvy. It’s Burning Man meets SCCA event meets Death Race 2000. It’s Mad Max meets Spongebob Square ...
