The 2014 Z/28 Camaro: Lockport’s First Look
This week Chevrolet unveiled a model strictly for those who love performance vehicles, the Z/28 Chevrolet Camaro. This refresh of the Camaro has been described as a “street legal race car”, and it certainly lives up to the billing. Coming in with a 7.0 liter LS7 Engine (the same found in a C6 Corvette) this vehicle carries whopping 500 horsepower, and 470 Pound Feet of torque. While those performance upgrades would be impressive enough on their own, the car also weighs 300 pounds less than the supercharged ZL1 Camaro. The V8 engine can be heard roaring down the street from miles away, and is really built for the consumer who loves traditional performance engines. It will be the most expensive Camaro ever made, but hey, you pay for what you get right?

Recently OnStar, The GM Foundation, and the Center for Disease Control all got together to help better prepare emergency service workers responding to car accidents. Using advanced telematics (yes that’s a real thing) culled from various technological inputs in place in a GM vehicle, first responders will now have a host of data already assembled as they speed off to an accident site. By having this data available during the trip to the accident, first responders can now begin piecing together a plan of action to put into effect once they arrive. Convening a panel of emergency medical physicians, trauma surgeons, public safety, and vehicle safety experts.
At the end of last week, GM announced that is was going to be investing 220 million dollars into two separate next-generation Chevy Cruze plants in Ohio. Thus keeping over 5,000 jobs alive and well in northeastern Ohio. This is not a new development for GM as since 2009 the company has poured nearly 7.3 Billion dollars into U.S. Facilities.
