Diesel variants coming for next gen Subaru STi and Mitsubishi EVO

Japanese car manufacturers Subaru and Mitsubishi are planning to introduce diesel options for their STi and EVO models.

The story about the move of Mitsubishi has some odd details behind it with rumors that the carmaker planned to scrap the Lancer EVO model while there are also rumors that it will no longer release petrol variants of the Evolution but instead focus on a diesel-electric hybrid.

If Mitsubishi is really planning to make an EVO which is a diesel-only or a diesel-eletric hybrid, this will keep the car from mainstream competition of motor-sport. The move will also make it hard to push it in the markets of Japan and the United States. One good news though will be keeping its carbon dioxide emission down the line of 200 grams per kilometer.

2010 Ford SVT Raptor with 6.2-liter V8: What Is It?

2010 Ford SVT RaptorFord is a car company that right now … is thriving.  While they might not be at the top anymore because Toyota is, they are certainly doing a lot of changing up and they are definitely coming out with all sorts of things that we auto-lovers love.  So when the 2010 Ford SVT Raptor was built – I thought that it was going to be one hell of a truck in the first place but throw in a 6.2-liter V8 engine?  It’s perfection!

At the SEMA show this year – Ford is finally going to show off the 2010 Ford SVT Raptor with the brand new engine and I think that is pretty damn cool.  What the new engine means is that the 2010 Ford SVT Raptor will be faster, better for the environment and all around … make it a better truck.

However, the price tag on this little beauty is about $41k+ which is nothing to sneeze at right?

The Ford Wixom Plant Gets A Makeover!

wixom_7429Finally, finally, Ford is going to do something with their abandon plant in Wixom, Michigan and they are going to lease it out.  The factory actually opened way back in ’57 during the glory years of Ford and the American automotive industry and it actually encompasses about 4.7 million square-feet … about 320 acres.  However, it has been abandon for years and now – finally, the lease is renewed and Ford has come up with a plan.

Two companies are actually going to invest in the former Ford plant and they are going to turn it into a renewable energy park.  The plant is going to go through a $725 million dollar renovation and it is actually going to belong to Clairvoyant Energy of Santa Barbara, CA.  Basically – they are relocating their headquarter to Michigan and they are going to produce solar panels.

This is fantastic news for my home state, Michigan and I think that this is going to be fantastic for the environment!

2011 Chevrolet Cruze: GM Needs To Get Used To Selling Them!

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

You know – you know that GM is known for their trucks.  You probably have owned one of their trucks in the past right?  I know that I have, however – the face of GM has changed and they are switching gears and their thinking and they certainly do not want to be known as the truck-maker any longer.  Instead, they want to be known as a company that can produce and actually sell some of the most compact and beautiful cars in the world.

At least that was the message that was sent to the dealerships – not specifically, but in so many words.  They should get used to selling the smaller-scale cars and they should like it.  Things like the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze are going to be popping up everywhere in the GM world and they are just going to have to get used to it.

To me?  The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is a fantastic car and I certainly hope that GM switches their gears!
