Additional 2019 Blazer Information

From: http://gmauthority.com/blog/2018/12/2019-blazer-specs-dimensions-finally-released/

After months of anticipation, we have gotten our hands on the complete specifications for the all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer. First and foremost, we must note that the “leaked” figures we reported on earlier this week were off a bit. But we can attest that the 2019 Blazer specs published below are correct, as they come directly from sales material shared with us by our Chevy dealer connections.

We should also note that we already had the majority of the 2019 Blazer specs prior to this. The only figures that were actually missing include exterior and interior dimensions, as well as capacities figures.

2020 Kia Soul Spy Shots

From: https://www.motor1.com/news/276314/kia-soul-teaser-familiar-backside/

Kia dropped a second teaser photo for the new Soul, this time giving us a glimpse of the crossover’s new eyes up front. The lights are definitely smaller than before, and frankly, we can’t wait to see the revised front clip in its entirety.

The two-week teaser campaign for new vehicle debuts at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show is underway, and Kia is keen to be part of the drama. The automaker just dropped the morsel above for us to ponder, showing a small portion of the new Kia Soul’s backside. As far as teasers go it’s a pretty safe one, since the new Soul is still easily recognizable from such a close-up angle.

The big news is that its underpinnings are all-new and shared with the Hyundai Kona, which means all-wheel drive should be an option – something Soul fans have wanted since the very beginning. It will also get an all-electric variant that should have a range of approximately 300 miles. It won’t be a performance beast like the offerings from Tesla, but the electric powertrain is expected to deliver around 200 horsepower (150 kilowatts) so it shouldn’t be boring, either. Gasoline-powered Souls should have a choice of either a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-pot, or a 1.6-liter turbo.

Kia will reveal the new crossover in just a couple weeks at the LA Auto Show, and we expect to see the electric version there as well. We’ll have boots on the ground to bring you all the latest news and photos from the event.

New for the 2019 Volt: Blackout Edition

From: https://insideevs.com/chevy-volt-blackout-package/

In fact, the Volt Blackout Package came along as a limited addition dealer-upgrade-only offering during the 2018 model year. But now, you can order a factory 2019 Chevrolet Volt with the package. For the 2018 model year, this option was only a limited edition and limited production upgrade, which was subject to dealers being able to outfit the car in such a way.

According to GM Authority, the new Chevrolet Volt Blackout Package includes the following:

  • Front and rear Black bowtie emblems
  • 17-inch split 5-spoke aluminum wheels with ultra-bright machined finish with painted gloss black pockets
  • Sport pedal kit

It will cost you an extra $1,995 and can be had on either current Volt trim level: LT and Premier. Let’s hope the 2019 Chevrolet Volt continues the recent sales momentum that the outgoing model has enjoyed. Perhaps with the upgrades and added packages it will fare well.
