Spy Shots of 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Article from: http://www.autoblog.com/2016/11/28/2018-chevrolet-corvette-zr1-spy-shots-z07/
By: Reese Counts
 

2018 ZR1 Chevrolet

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 is coming, and based on these new spy photos the biggest, baddest, and most aggressive road-car Chevrolet has ever built is nearly finished. We’ve seen spy photos for months now, with each new batch showing off more and more of the car. These new photos give us our best view yet.

Every test vehicle we’ve seen so far has been covered in camouflage. That’s still true here, but rather than loose fitting covers we have more revealing swirl wrap. For the first time, we can get a good look at the bulging hood and the reworked front end, complete with a massive, ankle gouging splitter. Chevrolet, no stranger to fantastic track-focused machines, seems to be filling the void left by the soon departed Dodge Viper ACR.

The big hood is likely hiding a supercharger larger than the 1.7-liter version found under the hood of the current Z06. Remember, the last generation ZR1 featured a 2.3-liter supercharger. We estimate the engine will be cranking out more than 700 horsepower and will breathe through those massive air intakes in the front bumper.

These new photos show a line of cars out on public roads. It seems Chevrolet is testing a few aero packages, so expect something similar to the Z07 Performance Package to be available on the new ZR1. The new car looks nearly finished, so get ready to see a final production version as soon as the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is only a week away! Check out these Halloween safety tips from Care Works.

Halloween Safe Tips

 

The simple act of slowing down on neighborhood roads can not only make Halloween more enjoyable for everyone, but it can save lives.
Have Children Going Out for Trick-or-Treat? 

  • Teach children how to call 9-1-1 if they have an emergency or become lost.
  • Have a set time for your kids to return home. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time or to call immediately if something happens and they are going to be delayed.
  • A good meal prior to trick-or-treating helps discourage youngsters from filling up on treats that have not been inspected by a parent or guardian.
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
  • Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car.
  • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Use reflective tape on costumes and bags so car drivers can see you better.
  • Take a flashlight to help you see, and others see you.
  • Always walk and don’t run from house to house.
  • Always walk on sidewalks when available, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
  • Consider wearing makeup and hats rather than masks that can obscure your vision.
  • Swords, knives and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.
  • Do not use decorative contact lenses without an eye examination and a prescription from an eye care professional. Obtaining decorative contact lenses without a prescription is both dangerous and illegal.

Expecting Trick-or-Treaters at Your House?

  • Be sure walking areas and stairs are well lit and free of obstacles that could result in falls.
  • Keep candle-lit Jack-O-Lanterns and luminaries away from doorsteps, walkways, landings, and curtains.
  • Place them on sturdy tables, keep them out of the reach of pets and small children, and never leave them unattended. Or, consider using flameless (electric) Jack-O-Lantern candles.

Halloween Candy Safety Reminders

  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating.
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats and never eat homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Consider a rationed approach of treats for children in the days following Halloween.

The All New 2017 Kia Rio – Check It Out!

Kia Rio 2017

 

From: http://www.autoblog.com/2016/09/01/2017-kia-rio-redesign-paris-motor-show

The last time the Kia Rio got a ground-up redesign was for the 2012 model year. That gave the Rio a crisp, modern look, but was also extremely cute-sy. For the 2017 model year, Kiatweaked the Rio with a leaner, meaner look. Relatively speaking, anyway.

The South Korean automaker previously released design renderings of the Rio, and now come official photos of the car. Kia claims that much of the styling changes were made to emphasize width inside and out. The headlights are slimmer and more aggressive than the wide-eyed lamps of the previous model, and much of the gently curving sheetmetal has been removed in favor of more flat planes. Not only that, but the new Rio is slightly longer, wider, and shorter than its predecessor.

Inside, Kia has spruced things up with what looks like a nicer mix of materials. The most unusual part of the interior is the infotainment system, which Kia describes as “floating.” The infotainment system extends up and off the dashboard, a bit like the screen on the Honda Civic. The good news is that Kia kept physical buttons part of the interface. The bad news is that the design looks a bit odd, as some of the buttons extend up with the screen and make it look a little like Kia used a stereo that didn’t quite fit in the dash.

Kia didn’t reveal any other specs on the car, but those details will likely come during the Paris Motor Show. This updated Rio is an important model for Kia, as last year it sold 473,000 units worldwide. While it isn’t Kia’s biggest seller in the US, it did have a slight increase in sales this year.

A Preview Of The 2017 Buick LaCrosse

2017 Buick LaCrosse Will Be Available At VanDevere In Akron Ohio

From: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1105726_2017-buick-lacrosse-preview

Buick’s new LaCrosse may not be a BMW-rivaling sports sedan, but it boasts remarkably lithe and polished manners on a curvy road. That’s partly due to its all-new structure, which checks in about 300 pounds lighter than last year’s admittedly porky model, and also to its upgraded five-link rear suspension that can be combined with two-mode adjustable dampers.

Unlike last year, all LaCrosses are now powered by the same 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This is Buick’s first application of GM’s new V-6, rated here at 310 horsepower and 382 pound-feet of torque, figures up 6 and 18 over last year’s version, respectively. The new V-6 is also mated to an 8-speed automatic—again marking the first time this transmission has been used in a vehicle to wear the automaker’s red, white, and blue shield.

Base LaCrosse models will sticker for $32,990, but selecting the two-mode dampers requires stepping up a couple of trim levels to the oddly named Essence trim level at $39,590 (plus an additional $1,625 for the dampers that are paired with 20-inch, as opposed to 19-inch, alloy wheels). The option doesn’t transform the LaCrosse into a Corvette, but what was already a confident-handling sedan with delightfully light steering feels even more poised when the road turns curvy.

Of course, a Buick can’t be a bad mile-eater, and to that end the LaCrosse succeeds as well. Its interior is Buick’s quietest yet, but what is most remarkable is that it makes use of ultra-light sound deadening. The LaCrosse weighs in at a svelte 3,600 pounds, but quells road rumble like a true heavyweight.

Most LaCrosse models will be front-wheel drive, but Buick offers the full-size sedan with optional all-wheel drive on the range-topping Premium trim level, which is a relative rarity in the full-size class.

LaCrosse squares off nicely against the Toyota Avalon and Lexus ES 350, offering style and sophistication more in line with the Lexus, but at a markedly lower price point. Our only complaints are lower-than-expected rear seat leg room for such a big sedan and the fact that adding automatic emergency braking requires piling on a number of options first.

Lots of features are standard on even the base model—a 7.0-inch infotainment screen, xenon headlamps, 19-inch alloy wheels, and power front seats. From there, the lineup jumps a hefty $4,000 to the LaCrosse Preferred that only adds a power-telescoping steering wheel, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a cargo net. It’s certainly a questionable value, so we’d advise either sticking with the base model or jumping to the $39,590 Essence that brings with it leather heated seats and a few other goodies—and offers optional navigation. The range-topping Premium is the only variant to offer automatic emergency braking, something that is either standard or available at a much lower price point on many rivals.

The 2017 LaCrosse is headed to showrooms shortly, where its $32,990 base price is up $1,000 from last year’s—but it feels worth every penny.
