MSNBC News’ Ten Most Improved Cars of 2011

MSNBC Autos released a list of the Ten Most Improved Cars of 2011, and a few of their picks caught our eye.  These candidates are definitely ones to put at the top of your list if you’re in the market for a new vehicle.

Buick Regal:  MSNBC touts the new Regal as sleek and racy, shedding its former stigma as a vehicle strictly for the older generation.  This luxury sedan gives a comfortable and exhilarating ride and is safe and fuel efficient to boot.

Chevrolet Cruze: While the Cruze is a fairly new model, MSNBC highlights its particular improvements over its predecessor, The Cobalt, including a much smoother ride, top notch safety features, and a much-improved classy interior.

Hyundai Elantra:  The Elantra ditches its “cheap” image and puts itself in contention for best-in-class honors in the compact segment. Thanks to its improvements in powertrain engineering, the new Elantra has got both serious power as well as impressive fuel efficiency (40 mpg).

America is back in the Game

 

The future is here, and America is back in the game.

It’s just one of the many good things Motor Trend magazine had to say about the all-new Chevrolet Volt as it named the car the “2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year®.” The annual award is one of the most prestigious honors bestowed in the auto industry and further proof that it’s a new day for Chevrolet, not to mention the entire auto industry. Powered by electricity without being tethered to electrical outlets, the Volt does everything a great car does and, according to Motor Trend, better than any other. It’s further proof that today, tomorrow and on into the future, Chevy Runs Deep.

Chevy Volt: The Future of Driving

2011 Volt
Motor Trend Article

Soon, buyers of the Chevrolet Volt will not only take home the most technologically advanced vehicle ever produced by Chevrolet, they’ll take home bragging rights too. That’s because the 2011 Chevrolet Volt has earned the prestigious title of the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year.® The Volt beat the competition after a rigorous and intense process applied by the selection committee at Motor Trend.

Chevrolet is proud of this recognition, but Chevrolet never set out to win awards. They set out to build an electric car that fits people’s lives in the real world of driving with the help of our range-extending gasoline generator. 

Chevrolet is committed to bringing more technology to more people and building safe cars, giving owners an excellent driving experience through great design and practical engineering — without sacrificing style.

The award-winning Volt is proof positive of that.

Chevrolet Volt. It’s more car than electric.

Corvette Stingray Concept Cars: Rogers Auto Group

History of the Corvette Stingray

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Rogers Auto Group
 

The Corvette Stingray was a privately funded concept car that formed a basis for the second (C2) generation Corvette Sting Ray. The Stingray racer-concept car was designed by Bill Mitchell, GM Vice President of styling, and Larry Shinoda in 1957. The basis of the Stingray was the 1957 Corvette SS, an engineering test mule chassis for the creation of an official Chevrolet race effort culminating with the 24 Hours of LeMans. Soon after its race debut, the Automobile Manufacturers Association (AMA) banned manufacturer-sponsored racing, and the SS had been relegated to test track duty. The Stingray exists today with a 327 cubic inch (5.4 L), fuel-injected V-8 of 375 hp (280 kW)
