CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


The 2011 Chevrolet Volt now has been awarded the North American Car of the Year. The Ford Explorer won the truck of the year, the third year in a row the Dearborn-based automaker nabbed the honor.

The Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors and has been on sale in the U.S. market since mid-December 2010. GM states the Volt can travel 25 to 50 miles (40 to 80 km) on batteries alone.

The suggested retail price for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt starts at US$40,280 excluding any charges, taxes or any incentives.

The full-size crossover SUV Ford Explorer is a sold in North America and built by the Ford Motor Company recently in Louisville, Kentucky (it was also assembled in Hazelwood, Missouri until the plant closed on March 10, 2006). Assembly of the fifth-generation Explorer will move to Ford’s Chicago Assembly plant on the far south side of Chicago, where it will be built alongside the Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS.

The Louisville plant, where the previous generation was built, will be converted to produce cars based on Ford’s global C platform (potentially including the Ford Focus, Ford C-Max, and Ford Kuga).

The Ford Explorer has been instrumental in turning the SUV from a special-interest vehicle into one of the most popular vehicle types on the road.
