Auto: Camaro’s Will Now Be Made In Detroit!

General Motors (GM) announced just a short while ago today that they will be moving production of the new Camaro to Lansing, Michigan from Oshawa, Ontario Canada. Improvements in production at the plant in Michigan was one of the reasons for the move according to GM. The Canadian Auto Workers union was upset with the move, saying it will cost jobs and will reduce production at the plant, but at the end of the day I like the move because a classic American car should be produced in the U.S. The new Camaro is not expected until either 2015 or 2016.

(Video) Auto Talk: GM study watches drivers of autonomous vehicles

Like it or not, autonomous vehicles are on the way, and much is being done to study their integration into the world’s transportation networks. As part of its own development of driver assistance systems, General Motors has begun to look driver behavior behind the wheels of self-driving vehicles; innovations like Cadillac semi-autonomous Super Cruise are designed to “ease the driver’s workload” on the highway, but it will be good to know what drivers plan on doing to occupy their time.

Auto Talk:Holden to maintain its identity within GM

Unbeknownst to us, observers of Holden, General Motors’ Australian subsidiary that has helped The General make some of its finest product, have wondered if the austral brand’s identity would get swallowed up in the push to create a cohesive, global Chevrolet. Three products headed to the antipodes have aroused the question: although the Colorado pickup (pictured in Holden concept form) and SUV wear Holden badges, both have the Chevrolet twin-bar grille, and the Holden Volt has the twin-bar grille and a mashup of the Holden and Chevy logos.

Auto Talk: How GM Got 3 More Miles Out Of The 2013 Chevrolet Volt

As we learned earlier today, the 2013 Chevrolet Volt has beefed up. The new model year vehicle has a “bigger” battery and can go three extra miles when driven solely on the battery. We spoke with GM representatives to get more information on the model year updates as well as answers to some of your questions (e.g., don’t expect E85 capability, once promised for the first-gen Volt, any time soon).

Auto Talk: Chevy SS prototype already taking the checkered flag

General Motors isn’t set to begin producing the new Chevrolet SS until early next year, but the company has recently been spotted testing the model on U.S. streets. Our spy photographers managed to click a few photos of a heavily camouflaged version of the sedan before engineers spirited it back into the relative safety of the automaker’s facilities. Even so, those on hand could easily hear the bark and snarl of an impressive V8 propelling the machine around. Odds are that’s a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter lump behind the headlights, though GM was using a Cadillac CTS-V chase vehicle to keep pace, leading some to speculate as to whether or not the company may be considering a supercharged version.
