2013 First Look For Charity
Feb 9th - 18th
First shown at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, the Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel is arriving at Chicagoland Chevy showrooms shortly with a sticker price of about $25,695. The Cruze Turbo Diesel is Chevrolet's first-ever small-car diesel and the first passenger-car diesel General Motors has sold in the U.S. in the past three decades.
Starting on 2014 model-year vehicles, customers who purchase or lease an eligible Chevrolet, Buick or GMC car, truck or crossover in the U.S. will be covered by a maintenance program that includes certain scheduled services for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
General Motors introduced the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo Diesel at the Chicago Auto Show this past February. At the time, initial EPA GM estimates called for a somewhat disappointing 42 mpg highway.
Los Angeles kicks off the auto show season each fall with a bang. All of the major players are here, poised to break out their latest wares for the car-starved public.
Interested in the Nissan Leaf, why not take a drive? Nissan is introducing zero-emission mobility to Chicagoland with the 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF. Now, thanks to a special program with Morton Arboretum, consumers can learn more about electric cars, and help to save trees in the region at the same time.
We just head about a FANTASTIC opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Jaguar, but you have to act fast. This weekend at Arlington Race Track in Arlington Heights, Jaguar is hosting the Jaguar Alive Driving Experience.
While the subcompact Chevy Sonic made big noise at the Chicago Auto Show last year, Chevrolet is poised to introduce an even smaller car called Spark this fall. Spark is an "A" class car, meaning its competitors here in the States are the Fiat 500, Scion iQ and Toyota Yaris.
Nissan is set to take Pathfinder back to the future this fall with an all-new design. Pathfinder was one of the first four-door SUVs when it was introduced back in 1987. The original utilized revolutionary (for the time) unibody construction, which saves both weight and maximizes interior space when compared to a conventional body-on-frame vehicle. That first Pathfinder sold well and was continuously evolved up until 2004.
Calling it the "most sculpted Accord ever," Honda has finally taken the wraps off the 2013 Accord. Sharing lines and proportions of the Accord coupe concept that was at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, the '13 Accord promises to be even more spacious and luxurious inside and smaller outside than the current model.
Acura is taking a different approach with the launch of its entry-level luxury sedan that was first seen at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. The compact ILX is aimed squarely at Gen Y buyers and has a manufacturer's suggested retail price starting at $25,900.
Last February at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota announced the continuation of its philanthropic 100 Cars for Good program. Today at 9 a.m. voting opened and Toyota will award 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 consecutive days. Winners will be selected each day through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com.
If you happened by the Ford Exhibit at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, no doubt you saw the F-550 Super Duty Rescue Truck. After a flurry of tornadoes devastated the Dallas area on April 3, Ford pressed the Rescue Truck into service.
