SAAB Forces Shut Down This Year

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 | comments

Several years ago, Saab Automobile had filed for bankruptcy and though they will no longer stay on business, marking the end of more than 60 years. After the filing of the bankrupcy report, the Swedish automaker’s owners had already surrendered their assets to the judicial court.Of course Saab fans might figure out and see GM as the major competitor and the villain in this corporate drama and is now reaching the peak of success to the automotive industry. There have been also rumor that the company has forced and paid the said auto maker to get out of the industry and merge their assets to them.

The name of Saab's last concept was not launched to the market due to the said issue and that is the renowned Phoenix which was shown off at the 2011 Geneva auto show, a final bid by the company to show it could rise from nowher. Its turbocharged 2.8-liter engine made 300 horsepower and cabin technology was built around a hard drive-based navigation system.The company, founded in 1947 and owned by GM since 2000, was due to be shut down in 2009 as GM consolidated its brands.Victor Muller, former CEO of Spyker Cars, threw Saab a lifeline, taking over the company and attempting to arrange financing. Most recently, Chinese automaker Youngman Automobile Group was set to purchase Saab. But GM, which still owns Saab technology licenses, spiked the deal by refusing to extend the licensing to Young man.

2012 Silverado - GM's Most Comprehensive Hybrid Vehicle

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | comments

Brand new year has brand new surprises for Chevy as they launched the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid. This  full-size American pickup is perhaps the most utilitarian vehicle on the market to date. Good thing General Motors made sure the first pickup trucks that use its Two-Mode Hybrid system would be nearly as capable as their non-hybrid brethren was actually introduced for the 2009 model year up to the present . Mainly when talking about the capacity of the truck it can tow up to 6,100 pounds, the bed can haul a little more than 1,400 pounds and still deliver 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway with a combined rating of 21 mpg. While some in the environmental community don’t understand there are occasions when fuel economy has to be forfeited in the name of capability, trades people, commercial users, farmers and ranchers need pickup trucks.

When it comes to power, we all know about the trucks. Brute. Tough. Power. If it’s turbocharged enthusiasm, both the Corvette and Cobalt seem to rustle up plenty of interest. We’re talking about serious versatility. However what else should you expect in what is seen as the “All-American brand?” Chevy Spoilers are versatile as well, shotgunning some fast style to a whole assortment of vehicles. GM  brings to the table a wide range of models that are capable of taking over the road in several different ways.
