The Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro already shares a few V-8 engine choices with the C7 Corvette, and there might soon be some manual-transmission overlap as well. AutoGuide found a document from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) that suggests the 2019 Camaro will gain a seven-speed manual transmission, presumably the same unit found in the Vette, in …

2019 Ford Mustang

It was supposed to be a surprise: a dollop of sports car news at an auto show dominated by pickup trucks. But the cat was out of the bag with numerous confirmations that Ford would reveal the 2019 Mustang Bullitt at the North American International Auto Show. The famed Mustang was part of a press …

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

It is, without a doubt, one of the strangest variants of a high-volume vehicle on sale in the U.S. right now: the 2018 Chevy Equinox fitted with the company’s 1.6-liter EcoTec turbodiesel.

Toyota Hybrid

It took Toyota two decades to sell 11 million hybrid and electric cars. But in another 12 years, Toyota thinks it can sell 5.5 million of them annually. Until now, Toyota had been reluctant to commit to dedicated battery-electric cars, instead offering limited-scale, expensive retrofits like the RAV4 EV. Now it plans to have 10 …
