    Buick is expanding a fundraising opportunity it is offering to local schools. "Drive for Your Students" is a test drive initiative that pairs local dealerships with local high schools. The premise is pretty simple. The High School host the event, students work it, and Buick provides the cars. The school earns $10 per test drive for the first 100 drives. After that the donation doubles, to $20, up to $10,000 in total.

    Chevrolet will price the 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe at $78,995 and the convertible at $83,995. Laying claim as the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever built, the Z06 has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 engine producing 650-horsepower. That's more horsepower than was spec'd the sixth-generation ZR1, which only had 630. Considering the ZR1 cost north of $110k, a sub-$80,000 Z06 sounds like a bargain.

  16. 15 Silverado/Sierra 1500 towing capacity lower with J2807 standard 1 2

    Teaser Paragraph:

    General Motors has announced that starting with the 2015 model year it will report towing capacity determined using SAE J2807 recommended testing practices. The more rigorous testing procedure has been held at arms length by the big three for years. Pickup producers have long overstated the capacity of their trucks using internal test procedures. The new J2807 standard brings everyone up to the same playing field. This means every pickup is finally being rated for towing capacity in the exact same manner from the 2015 model year forward.

     

    That's great news for consumers but the much more rigorous test lowers the "official" capacity numbers that many automakers love to throw around in ads.The Silverado and Sierra 1500 will see their towing capacity adjusted slightly down for the 2015 model year due to the new testing requirements. Only one Silverado and Sierra configuration, a 2-wheel-drive double cab with the optional 6.2L engine and the Max-Trailering package, will retain the prior year's rating of 12,000lbs.

    • 1,339,355 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia full-size crossovers from the 2009-2014 model years and Saturn Outlooks from 2009-2010 because front safety lap belt cables can fatigue and separate over time.
