52014 Toyota Prius liftback keeps even keel on price, sales

The Toyota Prius is the 800-pound gorilla of the hybrid world, and it looks like Toyota wants to keep it that way by holding the line on prices for the world's most popular hybrid. The Japanese automaker is leaving the price of all five trim lines of its standard hatchback Prius unchanged for the 2014, meaning that the price will once again range from $23,215 to $30,005, not including delivery and handling fees.

AddProposed interior colors for 2014 Fisker Karma included 'Coronado,' 'Palisades'

Among the things we're going to miss out on if/when Fisker Automotive goes bust is the legitimate description of "Coronado" as a color.

36North American production of foreign marques to jump in 2014

Wards Auto has released its North American Light Vehicle Production Forecast for 2014, and the report predicts foreign manufacturers will increase production on the continent some 3.9 percent by 2014. If accurate, that should see 123,000 additional cars, trucks and vans produced in North America, swelling the total number of units produced both by domestic and foreign manufacturers to 16.9 million light vehicles from a projected 15.6 million in 2013.

862014 Subaru WRX caught hot-weather testing in the States

Few mainstream hot hatches have tugged as many heartstrings in the last decade or so than the Subaru WRX. From its turbocharged four-cylinder heart to the traction of its all-wheel-drive footprint, Rex has been the benchmark by which others are judged since its debut in the States as a 2002 model. Suffice it to say that the next WRX, due in 2014, has mighty big shoes to fill.

This isn't the first time we've heard of BMW filling in its model line with both 2 and 4 Series models, nor the first hint that the 1 Series Convertible will be reborn as the 2 Series.

That means that the muscle car will boast a right-hand drive interpretation for the first time in its history. The RHD Mustangs will supposedly be built right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. and be shi

28Report: BMW X4 coming in 2014

According to multiple unnamed sources speaking with Autoweek, General Motors has put its plans for a C7 Corvette on "indefinite hold, with no official or set timetable."
