Chevrolet is expanding availability for its Midnight, Sport and RS packages, all of which have proved to be very successful with SUV customers.

With that in mind, Midnight and Sport packs are now available on more than half of all Chevrolet models, where approximately 1 in every 5 Trax vehicles sold is either a Midnight or Sport variant. Furthermore, these specs are also offered on the 2021 Traverse.

“Customer choice is a competitive advantage for Chevrolet,” said Chevrolet marketing VP, Steve Majoros. “Special editions and unique trims allow us to offer customers the custom look they want straight from the factory. This helps us get more customers interested in our vehicles, which in turn can help Chevrolet grow sales volume, market share and revenue. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

Driven: The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban Diesel Is An Unlikely Green Machine

The 2021 Traverse Midnight Edition offers LS and LT variants an all-black vibe, starting with the Mosaic Black Metallic exterior paint, black ice grille, black-painted aluminum wheels, black bowtie and badging, as well as black roof rails. You can also get the Sport Edition Traverse, which adds black-painted aluminum wheels, black ice grille and black fog lamp bezels and tailgate applique. Other highlights include the black roof rails, Traverse badging and bowtie emblems.

Sticking with the Traverse, according to Chevy, nearly 60% of the people who buy this SUV select the Redline Package – in fact, Chevy SUVs made up nearly 85% of all Redlines sold in 2020. Furthermore, a Traverse Redline Edition owner is also more likely to own a Tahoe, Suburban or Silverado HD as well.

Moving on to the RS trim, this accounts for about one-third of the carmaker’s 2021 small and mid-size SUV sales. For example, 1/3 of all Blazers are RS models, with Chevy having sold more than 140,000 RS trims since 2018.

This popular trim is also available on the 2022 Equinox, adding a gloss black mesh grille, 19-inch Dark Android wheels, black bowtie emblems, black badging and nameplates, black roof rails, RS shift knob, plus the black interior upholstery with contrasting red stitching.

As for the Activ trim, it’s a little more underwhelming as 1 in 10 Trailblazer owners choose this specification.

BMW has opened up the digital reservation book for the iX, its new flagship electric SUV, in Australia.

In return for AU$500 (US$372), customers can reserve a build slot on a first come, first served basis. Full pricing and specification details will be announced in mid-2021, and deliveries will commence in the fourth quarter of next year.

Unveiled one month ago, the iX will challenge the likes of the Audi E-Tron, Mercedes-Benz EQC and Tesla Model X. It features the brand’s fifth-gen BMW eDrive Technology and it is powered by two electric motors, which kick out a combined output in excess of 370 kW (503 PS / 496 HP).

Comparison: Finally A Fair Fight – BMW iX Vs. Audi E-Tron Vs. Mercedes EQC

The nought to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint is said to take less than 5 seconds, and with the 100 kWh (gross capacity) battery fully charged, it will travel for over 600 km (373 miles) on the WLTP cycle and 300+ miles (483 km) according to the EPA standard. The EV has a targeted electric power consumption of under 21 kWh every 100 km (62 miles).

The battery supports DC fast charging of up to 200 kW, so recharging it from 10 to 80 percent will take less than 40 minutes. Using an 11 kW Wallbox is an overnight process, as it will be juiced up completely from 0 percent in less than 11 hours.

Production of the iX will kick off at BMW’s Dingolfing facility in Germany in the second half of 2021, and if nothing interferes with the plan, then it should reach our shores in early 2022.

A 1972 Datsun 240Z has sold at a UK auction for £43,000 ($57,340) – not bad when you consider the modifications that have been done to it.

When the 240Z originally left the factory it came with a 2.4-liter straight-six that was good for 151 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque and was mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The owner of this 240Z was on the hunt for much more power than that, though, and decided to fit the Japanese iconic with the 350 hp, RB26 twin-turbo six-cylinder of a Skyline R33 GT-R.

This engine features a Nismo oil pump, Nismo waterpump, Tomi fuel pressure valve, high-performance plug coils, Apexi FC power controller, and a bespoke air recirculation system. Coupled to it is a five-speed manual from a Skyline GTST that includes a modified propshaft and a new limited-slip differential.

Other mechanical modifications made to the car consist of Tokico Illumina adjustable dual gas dampers at all four corners, uprated front and rear anti-roll bars, Tecno Toys control arms and enlarged brakes.

Interestingly, it is not the powertrain that is the most significant upgrade as the car has also been converted to right-hand drive. The listing from The Market reveals that two donor cars were purchased to make this possible, including a right-hand drive model for the bulkhead and its ancillaries and a rust-free original left-hand drive model.

Pre-auction estimates suggested the car would sell for between £50,000 ($66,486) and £60,000 ($79,783). Given that it sold for less than that, it’s possible that prospective buyers weren’t too fond of the mods made.
