Chevrolet has detailed its "Connected by OnStar" 4G intentions for 2014, confirming which of the cars in its range will be first to get AT&T LTE as standard, and we went hands-on with some of the first apps for the new connected car platform. First announced back at Mobile World Congress 2013, the scheme will see 4G connectivity no longer the preserve of luxury vehicles alone, with GM choosing a spread of cars from the cheapest Spark through to the feistiest Corvette Stingray to be among the first models to go online. It's not just turning a car into a mobile hotspot, either; Chevrolet aims to use the technology to demystify the whole vehicle ownership experience.

Chevy shows off 2015 Colorado mid-size truck

In years past, just about every automaker that offered a full size truck also offered a compact or mid-size truck. As the years passed and sales declined for that segment, some makers discontinued their small and mid-size trucks because the price and capability difference between the smaller trucks and full size units was minuscule and most buyers opted for the larger truck.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Technical Details

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Technical Details

"The Z/28 is really going to be the icing on the cake for the Camaro." So says Al Oppenheimer, chief engineer on Chevrolet's Camaro team, and while he's unsurprisingly a little biased about GM's street-legal race car, having been out on the track in the 2014 Camaro Z/28 it's hard not to catch some of that enthusiasm. Chevrolet's cars aren't production ready yet - though even when they are, GM will only be making 3,000-4,000 over the course of two years - and the test cars are hand-built, down to the special 505 HP engines, but already the potential is clear. Read on for our first impressions.

The Auto Vivisectionist: Inside GM’s Secret Teardown Lab

The Auto Vivisectionist: Inside GM’s Secret Teardown Lab

It's the killing ground where hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of SUVs, sports cars, and sedans meet their grisly end before they have more than a handful of miles on the clock. Some of General Motor's earliest work on building new models comes as much from tearing apart cars as it does piecing together fresh parts. That's the odd double approach of the Competitive Teardown Area, the high-security garage where cutting edge 3D printing and rapid prototyping sits alongside socket sets and angle grinders. The luckier cars start as homegrown constituent parts and leave as near-complete mockups of tomorrow's models; the unlucky ones - often wearing badges from Ford, Mercedes, Honda, Toyota, and other GM rivals - are making their final journey in one piece when they roll in through gates. It's the sort of place where, ordinarily, you'd need to be part of GM's engineering inner-circle to walk around, but SlashGear was invited to pay a special visit.
