GM said that the assembly plants it will idle by the end of 2019 include the Lordstown plant near Warren, Ohio, the Detroit-Hamtramck plant in Michigan, and one in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

  • Is this the refreshed Chevy Cruze?

    This much is clear: the above Chevrolet Korea video shows a slightly restyled Chevrolet Cruze sedan, which seems to carry over the same front-end look debuted by the Cruze Wagon at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Chevrolet has some favorite tunes too - and it uses them to test the quality of a car's audio system by taxing it with the highest highs, lowest lows and a suitable mix of tones to ensure customers will get great audio whatever their choice of music. Even if it's "Friday" by Rebecca Black... Matt Kirsch, lead...
