General Motors and Disney have put the finishing touches on the Test Track 2.0 ride at Epcot. Walt Disney World has begun holding previews of the attraction for the theme park's workers and their guests, and a few videos of the experience have already made their way to the web. From the look of the clips, visitors will not only get a glimpse of what the future of Chevrolet may look like, but they'll also come away with a better view of what goes into design a car from a blank canvas.

Disney kept the original Test Track course but turned over the attraction's design and feel to Chevrolet for a full makeover. The result is a sleek and modern feel with a focus on new vehicle technology and design. You can check out the videos below for a better idea of what the new Test Track 2.0 has in store. The ride officially opens to the public later on December 6.

      Its funny, living in Orlando we are usually at Disney parks every other weekend or whenever we have a bored day, and I'm amazed at how long the lines usually are for this ride. And I keep reminding people what we do out in the real world, is quite more thrilling and much faster, than this...I guess some like a controlled environment.

      I went through the first iteration of this ride, and found it more entertaining. I'm not a fan of the futuristic test environment. It was more fun when you went through what was more of a simulation of the actual 'test' process. I'll have to reserve judgement until I experience the ride though.

      Doesn't look like ruined it like Spaceship Earth (which was totally ruined with a stupid cartoon at the end). Updated and made more techno-type. Looks cool. It was in desperate need of an update.

      I rode the old version the first time I went to DisneyWorld...this is a pretty nice update but I liked the part where it tested your brakes on the old version. Same idea, just a different set of criteria tested. Hopefully I can make it back to ride the new one. The power part was always fun and looking down outside to see all the GM vehicles was cool too. It was right before they sold off Hummer, Saab, and Pontiac

        Hey give me your address so I can mail you your whopping $9.23 that you "gave" to save GM. Then can you PLEASE STFU?? Seriously the same stock response criticizing GM is getting old and lame.

        Unfortunately, the situation isn't that good. The money wasn't for saving GM, it was for saving the unions.

      It's OK, but not a big improvement on the old Test Track ride. I remember the original ride, the one that takes you through a history of transportation, complete with Animatronic figures. That was a good ride.

      The first two minutes haven't changed at all. Overall, track layout is exactly the same as before. Also, the "crash avoidance with the semi is still there. The only difference seems to be updated props, road paint is now purple instead of yellow, outside lighting is pink and purple instead of amber, and the addition of the "aerodynamics". Also, they removed the weather testing area, heat signature at the end, and the grey crash tested Saturn Vue that used to move (as if it had just crashed) right before the track goes outside. Also, the addition of the "utopia" city of tomorrow after the terrain testing from is a nice touch. It seems the city was inspired by the pre-Siemens sponsored spaceship earth, and/or the Tomorrowland people mover props. Overall, great improvement without loosing the roots of the ride.

      Very cool, I like all the Tron stuff as much as I like the old track, but there is still something about the truck getting lit up that can't be replaced by the outlining used in the update. Either way, I wouldn't be disappointed on this!
