An English review of the brand-new Li Auto L9 SUV, new Chevrolet Colorado, and last laps for a 4-time F1 World Champion.
“Being a racing driver has never been my sole identity. I very much believe in identity by who we are and how we treat others.”
Sebastian Vettel, as he announces his retirement from Formula 1 at the end of the 2022 season • BUT, silver lining: you can now follow him on Instagram on his new account, @vettelofficial.
Speaking now as a diehard Vettel fan: Seb, you will be missed. 💚
Don’t miss this. Will at ChinaDriven has published an exclusive drive review of the Li Auto L9, a China-made hybrid (super?) SUV that’s been benchmarked against the BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS.
Haven’t heard of Li Auto? The company founder also founded Autohome, China’s largest automotive website, car buying site, and owner’s forum.
A publisher of sorts releasing a car?! Damn, I guess I’ll have something else to aspire to…
This SUV, with key systems developed in-house, looks seriously impressive.
There’s an all-new Chevrolet Colorado for 2023, that (on paper) looks to be a formidable competitor to the popular Toyota Tacoma and the other midsize trucks, Ford Ranger, Nissan Titan, and whichever others available elsewhere that I’m casually omitting.
GM has launched it with four cylinder engines throughout the lineup—Work Truck to ZR2—and kitted them out with a stylish (on screen) interior. Crew cab only. Read the full release via Chevrolet, where it gets into way more detail than I will.
