2013 GMC Sierra 2500HD Overview CarGurus

R&T Overview:

The late Carroll Shelby told us once that the biggest thing he would change about the auto industry would be to convert all cars to run on compressed natural gas (CNG), simply because there's much more of it than oil. The latest heavy-duty version of GMC's Sierra is equipped to use CNG or gasoline with a 6.0-liter V-8, and since these trucks get regular workouts by fleets, they have easy access to CNG fuel stations. New last year, the sturdiest Sierras are available with GM's highly refined 6.6-liter turbodiesel V-8, with a range of 680 miles and it's rated for B20 biodiesel. With proper towing equipment, the 3500 HD model can tow 18,000 lb. with a rear frame hitch or 23,100 lb. with a fifth-wheel setup. Tenfour, good buddy.

R&T Overview:

It’s time to get over the fact that Volkswagen is not selling a new Microbus, choosing instead to offer us the Chrysler-built Routan. But it’s a fine vehicle nonetheless, able to seat up to seven, and now powered by a new 4-cam 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that makes a class-leading 283 bhp while returning an impressive 25 mpg on the highway. What’s more, the Routan shines as a minivan, still boasting the handy pair of sub-floor storage bins, each able to swallow a six-pack of soda. The SEL with Navigation is a popular model, fitted with pushbutton start and rain-sensing wipers, while the SEL Premium adds blind-spot monitoring and “Rear Cross Path Detection.” And best of all, the suspension has been tuned to make this passenger van feel like a VW.

R&T Overview:

A hot-rod GS version of the powerful Regal Turbo is added to the lineup, using a 270-bhp variant of the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder in the regular Turbo model, which boasts a strong 220 bhp. This is the highest specific output of any GM regular production engine ever made, at 135 bhp per liter. Initially, all Regal GS models come with a 6-speed manual gearbox driving the front wheels, but offset front struts keep torque-steer minimal. The front brakes are massive 14-in. discs with Brembo calipers, and electronically variable damping keeps the car stable in quick corners. Later in 2012, a 6-speed automatic transmission will become available. Pirelli PZero tires wrap 20-in. polished aluminum wheels and allow cornering at an impressive 0.90g.

R&T Overview:

The good news for 2011 is the U.S. availability of the V12 Vantage with the same 510-bhp V-12 engine found in the DBS. The V12 Vantage is only available as a coupe and there is no automatic transmission option. Of course, the “entry-level” Vantage with the V-8 is no slouch and it starts at a far more reasonable price of $120,750. The soft-top V8 Vantage goes by the Roadster name instead of Volante. Also new this year is the V8 Vantage N420, which is a limited-edition motorsport-inspired model inspired by the successes Aston Martin has enjoyed with road-going cars at the famous 24 Hours of Nürburgring. Check out the V12 Vantage Carbon Black limited-edition model with carbon fiber body panels and carbon black paint.

R&T Overview:

Ferrari’s California was meant to capture a new segment of owner, one who would appreciate the dual nature of this folding-hardtop spider. And so it has happened. There are those who argue against the exterior design, the main point of contention being the tall rear that accommodates the folding hardtop. Yet that shape means 12 cu. ft. of luggage space and the ability to go from closed roof to open in 13 seconds. And still the California drives like a Ferrari, its front mid-engine being a 4.3-liter 460-bhp V-8 backed by the company’s shift-in-a-flash 7-speed paddle-shifter gearbox. About all that’s new for 2011 is stop/start of the V-8 when you’re in traffic. Unlike a hybrid’s almost unnoticed stop/start, the Ferrari’s is downright invigorating as it growls back to life. Cool.
