2010 Chevy Equinox gets a Production boost!

Strong demand for the new Chevy Equinox has triggered GM to add extra production capacity for the crossover at its Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant. This will be the second production boost to keep up with the constant demand for the award-winning 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. Over the next several months the body shop at the Ingersoll plant will be expanded to provide the extra stamping capacity needed to supply Oshawa. The bodyshells will then be shipped 120 miles east to Oshawa where a third shift will build the Equinox alongside the Impala.

Check this out Z06 Vette Lovers! 2011 Chevy Z07 Carbon

This VETTE is serious. If you know about Vette's and the latest battles between the ZR1 and Z06. The Z06 although slower than the ZR1 has just a little more responsive handling, especially on the race track. The 2011 Chevy Z07 Carbon is designed to do just that, attack the track and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Corvette appearing at the 24 hours of LeMans.

What makes this the perfect car for the Vette enthusiast with an itch to hit the track? The brakes have been swapped out for carbon-ceramic brakes that keep the stoppers stopping even after several hot laps at the track. Chevy swapped out several body elements for a much lighter carbon-fiber panels which reduces the overall curb weight and increasing the power-to-weight ratio. Finally the suspension is fitted with a magnetic ride active damping system which provides the perfect degree of damping force in every cornering situation. All of the added tweaks plus the natuarlly aspirated 7.0L American Muscle under the hood, you should be set for the twisties on or off the track.

There will only be 500 Carbon editions made in 2011 The Z07 package provides the much respected Brembo brake system, upgraded wheels and tires and the MR suspension. Then the carbon fiber package adds the splitter, sill extensions and rear lip spoiler. Unfortunately, the hood is only available on the 500 limited edition cars. The Carbon and new option packages go on sale in late summer at prices that will be announced closer to launch date, so stay tuned.

GM supports Black Box Legislation--MUST Read

Just like the infamous "black boxes" (aka- event data recorders) found on airplanes to determine "what went wrong" when an airplanes crashes, cars can be equipped with similiar technology. It also has another perk, it helps Automakers improve their safety equipment.

Now Congress is looking to make these a standard feature of every vehicle sold in the United States of America, GM is all for it. GM also has been putting "black box" technology in vehicles since 1995 to save data during accidents that airbags are deployed. The recorders save the last few seconds of data before a crash from a number of different sensors. GM is not only welcoming this legislation but also think the information should be made available to determine the true cause of accidents.
