Hey guys. Yes this post is not one of my normal posts about a new car or which automaker is cutting workers. This post is about supporting the Stand Up to Cancer campaign, that is aimed at raising money for cancer research to put an end to cancer as the leading cause of death.
I'm sure all of us have lost or know someone that has lost a family member or dear friend to cancer.
SocialVibe and The Torque Report have joined forces to raise awareness and as much money as we can for this very important cause. All that you have to do is visit this special page and sign up in support of SU2C and for every one of you that do this SocialVibe will donate $1 to the cause. It's easy!
For more info about the cause continue reading below:
One of the more exciting things, besides the cars of course at the annual NAIAS Auto Show in Detroit is GM’s Style event. This year the exciting pre-auto show party featured some of GM's exciting model's on stage with artists such as Mary J. Blige and Maroon 5...there were of course lots of hot models as well.
For years automakers have claimed that small cars equal small profits, which explains their focus on bigger more profitable vehicles. Well now that large vehicles are out, automakers are trying to go small without killing their profits. Ford is hoping that its new "global" Focus will deliver double digit percentage profit improvements compared to the current US-spec Focus.
Earlier this year GM quietly released the XFE version of the Chevy Cobalt. XFE stands for "Xtra Fuel Economy" and means that vehicles labeled with this tag feature more fuel-saving technologies to save even more gas. GM has announced today that the Cobalt XFE is going to be joined by XFE versions of the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon.
