2011 Detroit Auto Show: General Motors to debut Chevy Sonic

By Automotive Staff | January 03, 2011
General Motors is prepared to start 2011 off with a bang. It has released details on four vehicles it plans to debut at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. Buick will show off its Verano compact sedan. Prices are reportedly going to start around $21,000. Cadillac will again contend in the Sports Car Club of America’s World Challenge series. This March at the Streets of St. Petersburg event in Florida, the Pratt and Miller-engineered CTS-V Coupe will make its racing debut. Cadillac will display the race car at the Detroit show for the public to see before its first event. At the show Chevrolet will be unveiling hatchback and sedan variants of its newly name Sonic compact along with a tricked-out Z-spec concept. Last but definitely not least, GMC’s Sierra All-Terrain Concept will make a showing. Based on the 2500 HD chassis, the All-Terrain concept features some of the best components from GMC’s parts bin along with a few extra goodies making it one heck of an off-road truck. Running a 6.6-liter turbocharged V-8 diesel making 745 pound-feet of torque, 35-inch tires, and a lifted suspension, the All-Terrain concept is an off-roader’s dream. via General Motors/Buick/Cadillac/Chevrolet/GMC courtesy of Automobile Magazine Staff
