2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE & The Power of Ten

Just when you thought the Detroit Auto Show was over, Chevy drops a rather nice surprise on us. Say hello to the 2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE, “the fastest, most track-capable Camaro ever.” You pretty much had me at “fastest,” but then you had to add “most track-capable Camaro ever.” Track capable you say? And wait, what’s this about a new transmission? Now you tell us!? Money Pits & Stop Watches Look, I’m not much of a track guy. I like going to tracks – love going to tracks, actually – but gett...

Tesla says the Model Y is coming in 2020

The Tesla Model Y — the SUV electric vehicle that CEO Elon Musk has been teasing and talking about since 2015 — will begin volume production by the end of 2020, the company said Wednesday in a letter to shareholders. The automaker, which has yet to show a prototype of the vehicle, said it will begin tooling for the Model Y this year. And unlike Tesla’s other electric vehicles, the Model Y will most likely be produced at the company’s massive “gigafactory” in Nevada, Musk said during an earnin...

Kelley Blue Book’s ‘Best Resale Value’ Awards Goes Carless for 2019

Until subscription services irreparably modify what constitutes “owning” a car, resale value will continue being an important consideration when shopping for a new vehicle. Every dollar you can squeeze out of your vehicle down the road is one you don’t have to hand over at the dealership. Every year, Kelly Blue Book compiles a list of […] The post Kelley Blue Book’s ‘Best Resale Value’ Awards Goes Carless for 2019 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Tesla reports back-to-back profitable quarters

Tesla reported Wednesday a profit of $139 million, or $0.78 a share, and better-than-expected sales, yet failed to meet analysts expectations for earnings in the fourth quarter. Shares fell after the markets closed and are now down 1.85 percent. Tesla has managed to string together two profitable periods in a row thanks to sales of the Model 3 and despite several headwinds in the fourth quarter, including a non-cash charge of $54 million attributable to non-controlling interests, higher import d...

Ladies Motorcycle Jackets Worth Wearing

Due to the lack of motorcycle jackets made specifically for ladies, in the past, a selection was made mostly based on what came the closest to fitting properly. But with the huge influx in ladies on bikes, manufacturers have spent millions of dollars designing and creating motorcycle jackets and full lines of apparel that are sized and cut to fit the variety of sizes and shapes that set the ladies apart from the men on bikes. Now ladies are facing a few new questions, and I hope to provide some ...

The 2019 Mazda 3 Is Light on Sticks and Heavier on Price, but It’s a Very Different Situation North of the Border

There’s more than just differing levels of enthusiasm for the letter “u” separating Americans from their Canadian neighbors. There’s a powertrain divide, too, and in no vehicle line is this more apparent than in Mazda’s new 3 compact sedan and hatch. You read the first drive review on Monday, and some of you perhaps recoiled […] The post The 2019 Mazda 3 Is Light on Sticks and Heavier on Price, but It’s a Very Different Situation North of the Border appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Is the World Ready for the Nembo 32 Motorcycle With an Upside Down Engine?

Flip It, But Why? Most motorcycles try to get the weight low so it’s easy to manage, but the Italian motorcycle company Nembo says mass centralization is more important than getting that weight low. According to the company, by flipping the engine upside down, it can package most the weight closer together. This unique idea first appeared in 2013. Now the bike is ready for production, and Nembo needs some help. The company doesn’t have money to produce its bike. To make this happen, it started ...

Volvo Urging People Not To Watch the Super Bowl

Volvo is taking a very unique approach to its advertising for the Super Bowl this year.

This CB750 cafe racer roams the capital of Pakistan

There are around 2.5 million motorcycles on the road in Pakistan. Which sounds impressive until you learn that the population is over 210 million—and most of those bikes are tiny Chinese- and Japanese-made commuters. The custom scene is virtually non-existent, because the import duty on motorcycles is a whopping 50%, and there are sales taxes on top. Which also explains why there are only about a dozen Honda CB750s in the whole country. This is one of those CB750s: a 1977 Super Sport owned...

‘You Get a Platform, and YOU Get a Platform…’ – Volkswagen, Possibly

Volkswagen could be on the verge of going Oprah, tossing electric MEB platforms to adoring fans like a pile of Pontiac G6s.

Will the Aborted Mazda 2 Line Finally Make It Here in Full?

It’s already half here. The Toyota Yaris sedan, formerly the Scion iA, is the rebadged twin of the subcompact Mazda launched in Montreal in 2015. You’ll note that Mazda does not sell a second-generation 2 in North America, making that launch a relatively pointless endeavor for the automaker. Now that Toyota has gone ahead and […] The post Will the Aborted Mazda 2 Line Finally Make It Here in Full? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ace of Base: 2019 Dodge Durango SXT RWD
