Chevrolet plans to unwrap the next-generation Corvette, featuring a midengine layout for the first time, in July.

After three straight monthly dips, U.S. light-vehicle sales in November rose 3.6 percent from a year earlier, helped by more generous deals and strong truck demand. Ford, Honda, Nissan, Toyota and GM posted gains. Industrywide volume hit a November record and the SAAR remained strong but dropped to 17.83 million from this year's highest rate -- October's 17.98 million.
