Having released several teasers of the new 2014 Chevy Corvette‘s exterior, Chevrolet has released a new video giving us a glimpse of the sports car’s interior.

From the video, we see that the Corvette C7 will have a digital instrument cluster, which provides more assurance that the new interior will be more modern and, thus, more competitive than the C6 Corvette’s sad excuse for a cockpit.

Set to debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the 2014 Corvette C7 will reportedly be powered by a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that produces approximately 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft (609 Nm) of torque, allowing it to accelerate from from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than four seconds.

Forget Cadillac! Does GM Needs A $100K Corvette SUV?

If Lamborghini, Porsche and, soon, Ferrari can have an SUV, why should Corvette?

Bob Lutz, the iconic automotive curmudgeon who helped shape BMW, Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors, believes General Motors has a great opportunity to take the Corvette nameplate upmarket with a Porsche Cayenne-like Corvette SUV that starts at $100,000.

Speaking to Automotive News, the former GM executive argued that Corvette is facing the same problem as Harley Davidson in that its baby boomer client base is dying out, meaning the brand is going to need a lot more than a traditional sports car like the new C8 Corvette to remain viable.

“The owner body is getting older and older and older, and there are no young people coming in,” Lutz said, adding that while he doesn’t believe Cadillac has any space to go upmarket, the Corvette brand does.

As for specifics about the Corvette SUV, he suggested that General Motors develop a dedicated architecture that’s super lightweight and powerful, envision something “Porsche Cayenne-like, only much better and a little bigger.” It will be a medium volume model with a starting price of $100,000, and it should never be offered with a V6 or as a low-cost offering.

The thought of a Corvette SUV might be offensive to some hardcore fans, but the times have changed and SUVs and crossovers are what make or break virtually every aspiring automaker.

The marketplace has also proven that there’s space for powerful, performance-oriented SUVs. From the Lamborghini Urus to the under-development Ferrari SUV and Lotus SUV, everyone’s getting in on the high-margin, sporty SUV game.

Lutz is not the first to make such an argument, and he likely won’t be the last. It will be interesting to see what will follow the C8 Corvette.

Is The Chevrolet Camaro Going To Die Again?

Was Chevy’s muscle car revived only to die again?

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro may be the last Camaro, at least for the foreseeable future.

According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, General Motors has stopped work on the seventh generation Camaro and has no plan to take the Camaro nameplate beyond the 2023 model year.

The sixth-gen Camaro is based on the same Alpha platform that underpins the Cadillac ATS sedan and coupe. However, while the ATS’ successor (the new CT4) uses the next generation Alpha platform, there are no plans for the Camaro to make the same transition.

Sales of the Camaro have declined significantly over the past few years, which is unfortunate considering how good of a sports car it is. The fifth generation Camaro took off after debuting in 2009, selling over 80,000 Camaros every year. But despite getting rave reviews from critics, the sixth-gen saw its sales drop to 51,000 units in 2018, which was a whopping 25 percent decline from the prior year.

Supposing the report is true, this won’t be the first time the Camaro has gone on hiatus. There was a seven-year gap between the fourth- and fifth-generation models.

You Can Order Domino’s Pizza Using Your Chevrolet

Don’t have 60 seconds to phone in a pizza order? This is for you.

General Motors has updated the infotainment systems on Chevrolet vehicles with a new Domino’s pizza ordering tool.

As part of the American automaker’s growing in-car Marketplace ecosystem, the app lets drivers place orders for carryout or home delivery using the in-vehicle touchscreen interface and Chevrolet Marketplace portal.

It would be too distracting and downright unsafe if the system let you configure an entire pizza from scratch, so you are limited to just saved and recent orders.

General Motors has been steadily growing Marketplace since its launch in 2017. In April 2018, Chevrolet partnered with Shell to allow in-car gas purchases, sparing you the trouble of using the gas pump’s magnetic reader and being the victim of credit card skimming. In November of the same year, Buick added Yelp compatibility to its infotainment system, allowing you to make restaurant reservations on the go.

The new Domino’s app works with any 2017 model year or newer Chevrolet vehicle that runs Marketplace.
