The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.

Oct 17, 2014 - 10:33 AM - by AutoGuide.com
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "

Have you ever wondered how much it was worth to achieve better fuel economy? Does the advantage of diesel fuel economy get lost in the cost of maintenance?

Holden have given us a few vehicles to have a closer look. In this introductory episode, I take the 2014 Holden Malibu CDX Diesel on my new daily commute.


At under $36,000 it appears to be quite good value.

At as low as 4.8 L/100kms (49 USSMPG) on the highway, that's getting closer to exceptional.



Full review to follow soon as well as comparisons against the 1.8 Cruze Sportwagon... [Read More]

OpEd: Meet the Cadillac CT6

Cadillac's CT6

by MonaroSS



This is 90% what CT6 will be












Credit goes to member dslay04 for pointing out the CAD drawing in the strategic plan thread that shows the CT6 body panels. Great catch!

As can be seen with the partial CAD overlay below - the render is a perfect copy of the CAD body and I just filled in the missing bits like glass, wheels. lower sill and rear bumper skin from the camo car photos. The only area of speculation is the front clip

So we got lucky and with that I could... [Read More]

Oct 01, 2014 - 2:29 PM - by AutoGuide.com




Kicking off the auto show season, the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the public next week, but AutoGuide's team of reporters will get you inside early with three days of coverage from the City of Lights.



And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.



Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.

Cadillac planning its own engines, halo cars,a sedan above CT6

Sep 30, 2014 - 8:24 PM - by Pellz
Cadillac is in the midst of some big changes. It's got a new chief executive. It's taking some distance from parent company General Motors and moving to a new headquarters in New York. And it's instituting a new naming scheme that will allow not only for a more clear progression in its lineup, but also for more models. But that's not the end of the story. Not by a long shot.

Speaking with Automobile magazine, Cadillac's new president Johan de Nysschen revealed his intention to develop several new models and powertrains. For starters, he does not want Cadillac to continue borrowing engines from the GM parts bin, but intends to develop a new range of engines specifically for the luxury automaker. The program will likely start with smaller-capacity engines but eventually lead to new V8s as well, taking the place of the long-serving Northstar engine that finally ended its lifespan a few years ago after some two decades of production. Along with other technologies, de Nysschen... [Read More]

Cadillac Announces CT6 Flagship Sedan, New Naming Scheme

Upcoming Top-End Product Named Cadillac CT6
General Motors

September 24, 2014


DETROIT – Cadillac announced today that its new, high-technology car positioned at the top of its range will be called Cadillac CT6.

“The Cadillac CT6 continues our brand’s elevation and global growth,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, Cadillac chief marketing officer. “CT6 will constitute an entirely new approach to the prestige sedan, emphasizing a dynamic driving experience and advanced technology.”

When it launches in late-2015, the CT6 will expand the Cadillac range upwards – meaning it will not replace any current product. Positioned above today’s CTS and XTS product lines, the CT6 aims to... [Read More]

First Drive: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

GM rolls the dice on its new midsize pickup trucks
www.GMInsideNews.com
September 23, 2014
By: Nick Saporito


While most things in America—people included—have gotten bigger over the decades, full-size trucks have grown exponentially in size. Their growth has not just been in physical size but in price. Today, the irony associated with buying a $50,000 half-ton that can’t fit in the garage is a common occurrence. Pair that with the fact that there are more than 12 million small pickups on the road, with only Toyota and Nissan offering feasible alternatives and GM sees a golden opportunity for new small trucks. Their solution to this problem has been to resurrect the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups but thankfully... [Read More]

My Cadillac CT7 and CT9 Project - version 2.0

Ten Days Ago I Let You Guys Down

I Hope Here to Make Amends








Last week I got a lot of reaction to my proposed retro styled CT7 and CT9 range, mostly negative. That may still be true with these renderings because people simply don't like the heavy retro look of the CT9; shown both as Glamour Drop Top and Neo Lead Sled (NLS) V-Coupe forms here. And people may also dislike the mild retro styling mixed with Art & Science of the CT7 Convertible, Coupe and V–Coupe, also shown here.

However I don't think either design... [Read More]

What I would do for Cadillac's CT7 and CT9 range in the future
August 7th, 2014
by MonaroSS




Retro Design worked to restore past Glory
for Mustang and Camaro
Why not Cadillac?








We know Cadillac has an Omega sedan (let's call it CT7) on the way to take on the might of the Benz S-Class and the other Germans. But what about the Omega+ super sedan above that? We heard it was cancelled, as it was not different enough from CT7. Will new Cadillac Tsar Johan de Nysschen revive CT9, and how would he make it not only different from CT7 but also make a bold statement in that elite and rarefied market space?

GMI Drives: Holden VF Commodore SSV Sportwagon

Sporting Wagonlove

10 July 2014

Modern marketing allows many liberties to be taken in the name of desirability. Some call it "artistic license". Others, "misdirection". Our recent drives in the Cruze Sportwagon and Captiva Sport Utility Vehicle found no traces of actual sport within. Finally we uncover something that represents what it says on the label. The Holden Sportwagon is both wagon and sporting conveyance.

What a shame that the world doesn't seem to like them any more....

Does GM need a revival?

Jun 29, 2014 - 12:47 PM - by NoStopN
As the title suggests, this is just my opinion. And, I can be long-winded.

I'll start this column by saying that from the outside looking in, GM's advertising seems to be hit & miss. Recent Buick TV ads & most of GMC's TV ads have been very good without the need to try to push a "type" of customer. What I mean is, these ads have not stereotyped a certain type of buyer for their products. Cadillac & Chevy ads have pigeon-holed their clientele into a certain class. However, advertising is a topic for another conversation.

So, what is there to fix?

I began to look over sales results for most of GM's models, & I was surprised. I don't usually pay attention to monthly sales results. That's because a new GM vehicle isn't in my driveway. Also, most of GM's vehicles aren't quite what I'm looking for. While looking over those results, I saw a common pattern. I call it the roller coaster.... [Read More]
