FOX Wheels: What’s Ahead in 2014

1-3 GM2

Making history, new cars and trucks and a lot of “pedal to the medal”.

FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper has a peek at what’s ahead this new year in “FOX Wheels“:

It’s FOX Wheels.

2014 could be a big year for the automakers. GM makes history, giving the CEO job to a woman.

Mary Barra started as an intern and becomes CEO on January 15th.


You’ll see 23 new models coming out of Ford — including a new F-150 and Mustang.

It means a profit hit for the automaker but, likely some deals for you as Ford tries to unload old models.

Ford analyst Erich Merkel tells me, in 2014:

(Merkel) “We think that the overall industry is still going to remain very strong and that trend toward smaller utility vehicles – that’s very much intact.”


Former Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli took the automaker through bankruptcy in 2009, but says now:

(Nardelli) “Chrysler’s doing great.”

Current CEO Sergio Marchionne gets his wish in 2014 with Fiat saying it will buy the remaining Chrysler shares from a union-controlled trust fund so the companies can be combined.


Feel the need for speed?

Lamborghini introduces the “Huracan” this spring.

You can go from 0 to 124 in less than 10 seconds.
