Mitsuoka Rock Star unveiled

The Mitsuoka Rock Star has been revealed in Japan, and it's a remarkably good recreation of the second-generation Chevrolet Corvette based on the current Mazda MX-5. It's certainly easier to love than some of Mitsuoka's other creations, like the Orochi mid-engine sports car, and various Jaguar-inspired models based on the Nissan Micra...

Three filings from General Motors with US Patent and Trademark Office detail new devices designed to alter airflow around and through a car.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD recalled

Premoso Pty Ltd has recalled the MY18 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, over concerns the rear-right and rear-centre seatbelt buckles.

Obviously, that puts occupants in those seats at greater risk of injury in an accident...

2019 Chevrolet Volt upgraded with faster charging

Chevrolet has announced a new, faster charging system for its Volt hybrid, helping halve the time required for a full battery.
