Autoblog Canada Launches French Language Edition, Autoblog Québec

Good news for gear heads in Québec! AOL Canada just announced the launch of Autoblog Québec, the French language edition of its popular automotive site Autoblog Canada. Autoblog Québec will be led by editor Jean-François Savoie who will combine award-winning content from the international editions of the site, with featured content from key contributors and local journalists from across the province.

With 50 percent of Quebecers (3 million UVs) currently visiting automotive sites, Autoblog Québec will provide a new destination for original automotive news and industry content, car reviews, international auto show coverage and captivating best-in-class photo and video galleries to a highly engaged audience*.


The launch will extend the distinctive and authoritative voice and original content offered by Autoblog Canada to French speaking visitors. The expansion only further supports AOL Canada's commitment to growth for both French language sites and original local content, as Autoblog Québec joins Le Huffington Post Québec in AOL Canada's growing French language portfolio.

Wish you were handed the keys to a brand new car? Over 50,000 other people were hoping the same thing when they entered AOL Autos' "Technology of the Year" award sweepstakes to win a new Dodge Dart. AOL Autos' editor-in-chief, David Kiley, traveled to Tacoma, Washington, yesterday to deliver the new car to the one lucky winner.

The Dodge Dart came equipped with AOL Autos' Technology of the Year award winner, Chrysler Group's Uconnect. The award was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and given to Uconnect for its class-exclusive Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen with built-in radio, available Garmin navigation, iPod control, climate controls, voice-activated Bluetooth®, SiriusXM Travel Link, weather updates and points of interest.

"I have never had a car I could sync to a smartphone or even navigation...I would hold the GPS in my hand as I'm driving, so this is going to be a big change," said Dodge Dart winner, Jennifer R.

Congratulations to the winner and to Chrysler Group's Uconnect for winning AOL Autos' Technology of the Year!

Win a Car Featuring AOL Autos Technology of the Year!

After a year long search, AOL Autos announced the winner of our first Technology of the Year Award at the 2013's International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) earlier this week. Chrysler Group's Uconnect Access edged out more than 35 other entries to snag the title.
The judges, including editors from AOL Autos, Autoblog and Engadget, awarded the top prize to Uconnect Access which gives users one-button emergency assistance, voice-controlled text messaging, vehicle performance monitoring, a voice-activated smartphone app that allows locked doors to beopened when keys are locked inside and more great assistive technology.

We're so excited about the technology; we'd love for you to try it out too. Starting this week, we're giving you a chance to win your own installation of Chrysler Group's Uconnect Access, inside a brand new car, of course! To celebrate the award, we're giving away a 2013 Dodge Dart Limited, worth more than $23,000.
