GMI NYIAS Preview: A New Home for Cadillac

Mar 27, 2015 - 10:53 AM - by MarkStevenson
As Cadillac settles into its new digs, Chevrolet looks to up its midsize game
March 27, 2015
By: Mark Stevenson

This year will mark many firsts for Cadillac as it looks to extend its reach beyond North American luxury. It will be the first year they call New York their “home” auto show…or any auto show outside of Detroit, for that matter. It will also be the first time Cadillac has introduced a new nameplate since January 2012 when it debuted the then-new ATS.

It isn’t just Cadillac showing off new wares in the Big Apple. Chevrolet has confirmed at least two models for the show while Buick could be set to reveal something as well.

GMInsideNews will be covering the Cadillac CT6 launch event and the... [Read More]

Post Current Art & Science Cadillac Styling?
March 26th, 2015

In the year 2025,
if Cadillac is still alive.

It's a simple proposition really. Where to after the current Cadillac styling theme has run it's course?

I have chosen inspiration from 1965-1975 Cadillac styling. I then took that slab-sided angular rectangular look and went modern minimalist with it. I hope by 2025 some the German over-wrought styling has calmed back down to a stately elegance again as well.

So, no door handles,... [Read More]

Sixth generation Camaro biggest change since model's reintroduction

With the impending release of the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro confirmed for May at Belle Isle, we've brought together all the facts, thoughts, and speculation into one place to try to piece together GM’s newest pony car.

During almost the entirety of the fifth generation Camaro, it topped the sales charts in comparison to Mustang and Challenger. GM plans to keep that crown with an all-new platform for the model, signaling the biggest change since its reintroduction on the Zeta platform.

OpEd Buick Avenir CUV a better bet?

Luxury CUV would be a more profitable Buick

We love the Buick Avenir
Would we love it as a CUV?

It's a simple proposition really. Would the Avenir do better as a luxury CUV rather than a Luxury sedan?

We know the market in large sedans has been falling for a long time, while CUV crossover type vehicles are the big growth market. So while we love the Australian Holden Designed Avenir as a gorgeous looking large sedan, we should ask - is there a profitable market for such a car?

What Will "Six" Do?

By: Z284ever

What Will Six Do? That's what GM asks us at the end of their latest teaser, as it celebrates its 500,000th 5th generation Camaro sale in the US, and also shows us a glimpse of the 6th generation Camaro, albeit in camo.

It's safe to call the 5th gen a sales success. The pencil pushers at GM are very pleased. It's great when internal politics don't have your car marked for death and you can just seamlessly go on to the next generation. Those half million 5th generation units secured that right for the upcoming 6th generation car.

So, what will "Six" do? The 6th generation Camaro has the potential to reach new segments and buyers who might never had... [Read More]

Why Buick is becoming the Cadillac of GM – not Cadillac

Mar 12, 2015 - 9:11 AM - by Tone

Jeremy Cato | Globe and Mail | March 11, 2015

Somewhere in this universe or beyond, the Scottish inventor of the pushrod engine and founder of Buick Motor Co., David Dunbar Buick, is having the last laugh at the expense of the remnants of the old Henry Ford company, which eventually became General Motor’s Cadillac brand.

Buick is becoming the premium brand GM has dreamed of for Cadillac since … forever. Buick has done this quietly, without hype or empty promises. Last year, Buick delivered nearly 1.2 million vehicles in China, the United States, Canada and Mexico, a second straight sales record. Buick’s luscious Avenir... [Read More]

GMI Review: 2015 Buick LaCrosse AWD

Mar 11, 2015 - 12:50 PM - by MarkStevenson
Full-size tri-shield sedan is traditional Buick to and for the core
March 11, 2015
By: Mark Stevenson

With General Motors pushing the Buick brand in a more youthful direction, the LaCrosse goes against the modern grain. Models like the Regal, Verano, and Encore are enticing younger and younger buyers to the Buick brand, which is absolutely necessary, but it’s important not to forget core customers in the process. That’s where the LaCrosse comes in.

Solidly at the latter half of its second generation, post-refresh, the current LaCrosse is getting to the end of its life and will be due for a complete redesign in the near future. Riding atop the same Epsilon II platform as the... [Read More]

Chicago: No Camaro, But 20 Minutes With David Leone.

Feb 12, 2015 - 5:47 PM - by Z284ever

I figured there might have been some small chance, that GM might have surprised us with a 6th gen Camaro reveal today. When I got to the Chevy press conference a few minutes early, it was obvious that the two vehicles under the covers on stage, were not Camaros. Arggghh....I would have slept in later had I been 100% sure.

One was the new Equinox. I guess it's got some new features, like fancy lights or whatever. There's a whole thread on it elsewhere on the site, if that's what floats your boat. Chevy also revealed the Silverado Custom. Basically a crew cab Silvy, with cloth seats, 20" wheels, a 5.3L and a $33K starting price tag. Essentially a truck like people used to buy before...

The American automaker announced plans to produce the Bolt at its Orion Assembly facility near Detroit. Introduced in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show and according to GM North America President Alan Batey, the overwhelming response was to 'build it.'

Chevrolet debuted a new trim package for its Silverado half-ton pickup truck today at the Chicago Auto Show.

GM first announced the 'Custom' trim in early January ahead of its debut here in the Midwest. Making its in-person debut today, the pickup is based on the Silverado LS, but adds 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome bumpers, mirror caps, chrome door handles and a body-colored top cap above the front bumper.

It also comes with a 40/20/40 cloth front seat, cruise control, power locks and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel along with a 4G LTE WiFi

Most of you did not care much for my radical Cadillac-V Mid-Engined effort, so I thought I would do a more conservative version based on the styling cues from the Elmiraj.

In order to make this a practical car to use daily I would use a transverse TTV6 only with the "hot inside V" configuration - with exhaust and turbochargers inside the cylinder banks like Benz on the AMG GT. I would vent the exhaust gases into catalysts and... [Read More]

GM tries to keep Equinox sales strong while the next generations looms

By: Mark Bono

The second generation Chevrolet Equinox was introduced back in 2009 as a 2010 model year. Since then, the Equinox has been a huge hit for GM. Despite being on the market for close to six years now, its sales have remained strong. Just last month Equinox sales improved 34% over January 2014 sales making it the highest number of sales for the model in the month of January. It was the second best selling model in Chevy's portfolio( only behind the Silverado). Chevy is currently preparing the third-generation ( and rumored to be smaller) Equinox. In order to keep the current model fresh while we... [Read More]

Chevrolet Bolt to Arrive in Late 2016: Report

Feb 06, 2015 - 9:53 AM - by

The Chevrolet Bolt is bound for production late next year.

According to a recent report from Reuters, the Bolt will be produced at an underused small-car plant north of Detroit in a planned run of 25,000 to 30,000 cars per year. The all-electric Bolt is expected to be priced around $30,000 and will have a range of over 200 miles. It is believed that the Bolt will be produced at the same factory as the Chevrolet Sonic and Buick Verano, which has been operating below capacity.

GMC May Get An SUV That Looks Like A Hummer To Rival Jeep Wrangler

GMC May Get An SUV That Looks Like A Hummer To Rival Jeep Wrangler
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
Posted by Zac Estrada

General Motors might finally be serious about giving GMC some distinctive product, and one that would give the hot-selling Jeep Wrangler some competition.

GM is asking for feedback from GMC dealers about a new model that would go head-to-head with the Jeep and sport some cues from the defunct Hummer brand, sources close to matter told the Wall Street Journal.

Those Hummer styling cues mean this rumored GMC could bear some resemblance to the Hummer Hx concept from the 2008 Detroit Auto Show – or at least share it's open-topped spirit. That concept was also powered by a 3.6-liter V6 like the current Wrangler and within two inches of the four-door Wrangler Unlimited's length.

Top 10 Safest Affordable Midsize Cars of 2015

Jan 23, 2015 - 1:14 PM - by

Safety should be an important consideration for anyone buying a new car, but it’s probably your top priority with a family to haul around.

According to IIHS, there are six midsize cars that are moderately priced and have earned Top Safety Pick+ awards, while nine others have earned Top Safety Pick honors. But just because they’ve all earned accolades from IIHS doesn’t mean they’re all equally safe – some performed better than others in certain crash tests.

Australia Correspondent

22 January 2015

The focus group has spoken... and Holden have answered with a nice turbo cherry on top of their tech packed sub-compact SUV.

Yes people, the SUV is very close to being THE default body style on the market despite the definition being diluted with each new iteration. But as Charles Darwin said, "It is not the strongest or most intelligent who survive but those who can best manage change."

When the Trax first arrived on Australian shores, it brought with it a superbly capable version of MyLink which enabled use of smart phone apps to "outsource" some of the more expensive functions you would normally pay for on a vehicles options... [Read More]
