Z284ever Drives the 2016 Camaro

Nov 27, 2015 - 5:40 PM - by Z284ever

As promised earlier in the week, I got to spend a little while driving a 2016 Camaro. This one was a black on black, 3.6, A8, 2LT, RS. It was loaded, but I don't have a list of it's individual options.

The first thing you'll notice on the exterior of the new car is that it looks like a 9.5/10ths scale 5th gen Camaro. I mean, it's not necessarily a lot smaller, but it just seems more compact, more tidy. The ~2" reduction in every dimensions has a pleasing visual effect. More athletic looking, maybe. I believe we've already talked to death our impressions of the exterior design, so we can move on.

If you are familiar with the 5th generation's 'Japanese soldier in a pillbox on Tarawa', driving position, you'll feel right at home in the 6th gen. It's pretty similar. I had to lower the seat all the way down to keep... [Read More]

Cargo Van Production May Be Subcontracted Thanks to Strong Colorado/Canyon Sales

GM may contract out van production to boost capacity for pickups

November 24, 2015

General Motors is in talks to offload some of its commercial van production to contract manufacturer AM General, a move that would free up capacity at GM’s plant near St. Louis to make more of its hot-selling midsize pickups.

In a note circulated to workers at GM’s Wentzville, Mo., plant on Monday, plant officials said the company is “studying

Things Overheard at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show

Hey! Outta the way – you're ruining my shot!

Walking around the convention center, being distracted by eye candy or looking for a free bagel, it's easy to overhear other conversations going on between industry folks and those of us with media passes. Some musings:

Plug-In and EVs In Cadillac's Future

Cadillac's plug-in play: Hybrids first, then EV
EV on to-do list in the long term.

November 23, 2015

After the CT6 PHEV, what can we expect Cadillac to do next? De Nysschen offers us a hint . . .

"For us, the avenue to ensure that we are able to play in China is going to be through plug-in hybrids," de Nysschen said on the sidelines of the auto show here last week.

That means for now, Cadillac won't be among the pack of luxury and performance brands rushing

Buick Verano Hatchback Unveiled in China

Buick unveils new Verano hatchback in Guangzhou
Noah Joseph/Autoblog
November 23, 2015

While we've been distracted by Los Angeles, something else has been going on halfway around the world....

Like the sedan revealed this past April in Shanghai, the hatchback is a newer model than the US-market version, based on the new Opel Astra, but with that signature waterfall grille. Otherwise, it looks virtually identical to the version sold as

2015 Los Angeles Auto Show Gallery: The Rest from GM

Nov 21, 2015 - 4:31 PM - by Diego

Press Day at any auto show may appear fun to the outsider, but it's still work for all attendees, whether they're from the auto companies, suppliers, press, film crew, or hangers-on that manage to squeeze through. The international flavor, with people from all reaches of the world, rivals any major airport or Wal-Mart. The amount of money shelled out for these events may pale in comparison to the amount spent on our presidential elections, but it's still sizable (especially after the relative austerity after the recession).

All this is to compete for your hard-earned dollars.

And just like the American... [Read More]

First Look: 2017 Cadillac CT6 PHEV at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show

Cadillac's First Plug-In Hybrid Debuts at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show
335-horse Cadillac Touring 6 Sedan should hit dealerships later in 2016.
November 20, 2015

For the folks who were not able to attend the 2015 New York International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year, the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show likely was the place where they first laid eyes on the 2017 Cadillac CT6. From Cadillac's official photos, many a GMI reader has been disappointed with the CT6’s styling – not that there is anything wrong with it, but it’s just that we collectively had been waiting for an streetable Elmiraj or a Ciel. Instead,... [Read More]

Car and Driver magazine: 3-4 Cadillac CUVs headed our way

Cadillac: We’ll Do Three—Maybe Four—Additional Crossover SUVs, No More Standalone EVs
Joe Lorio/Car and Driver
November 20, 2015

Things will get interesting really fast. I think this confirms a RR sport/X5 fighter as well as a straight up Range Rover fighter.

At the introduction of its new XT5 mid-size crossover—which made its worldwide debut in Dubai, followed shortly thereafter by a North American premiere at the L.A. auto show—Cadillac stated that the model would be the first of four new crossovers

GMI Design Analysis: 2017 Buick LaCrosse

Nov 20, 2015 - 4:32 PM - by vanshmack
2017 Buick LaCrosse Draws Inspiration from Buick's Rich History
Words by Mike DeMattia
Photography by Chantal DeMattia

Prior to Wednesday’s world debut of Buick’s third-generation LaCrosse, I had done fair job of missing most of the spy photos that emerged over the past several months. This was not done with any intent but, rather, there just seemed to be more interesting things taking place in Automobiledom. As a result, the 2017 LaCrosse was simply not on my radar. Not that it would have mattered, however, as none of the heavily-camouflaged prototypes seen in those early images would have prepared me for what General Motors... [Read More]

2017 Cadillac XT5 Unveiling at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show

Nov 20, 2015 - 6:35 AM - by Diego
The Cadillac of Luxury Crossovers is Here: 2017 XT5
The "Crossover Touring 5" makes its American debut.
November 19, 2015

Ten days after its global reveal in Dubai, Cadillac lifted the cover off the highly anticipated replacement for the SRX in Los Angeles. It's been several months since the XT5 was "accidentally" left sitting in SoHo, and for awhile we’ve been left only with photos for judging whether it meets our high expectations for Cadillac to take on the world.

Cuz the Standard of the World needs to be that kind of car.
