    Modern automaker ads are full of flash and emotion, playing with your feelings with puppies growing old or showing off feats of strength not seen since Festivus. But what about the classic ads. When automakers weren't afraid to show you a truck that was doing an impression of a taco, where they...

    The full-size pickup is the new big family sedan, and it has been for a few years now. And you could probably call the full-size SUV the new family wagon. But can the new family sedan do everything that the old family sedan could? I took the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 Duramax on vacation to find out...

    The Tahoe and Suburban used to be marvels of modern automotive packaging. I don't mean that in a good way. I spent over 1000 miles in the back row of a Suburban on a road trip in my early 20s, and I couldn't wrap my head around how something so big could be so tight inside...
  4. Global Buick News
    I don't normally say things like this, but I didn't originally expect to like the Buick Encore GX. At all. A confusing name, designed for a different market, and with a pair of tiny three-cylinder engines? On paper, it felt more like a return to the days of the J-Body Skyhawk. Instead, in a feat...

    It's not their first kick at the can, if you'll recall the EV1 of the late 1990s. It's not even their second kick at the EV can, which was the Spark EV (don't remind us of the 1960s EV testbeds). And the automaker has plenty of EVs in China now. But now General Motors is going big on...
  6. Global Cadillac News
    Yes, the Blackwings - to be clear, the CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwings - will receive their own special performance steering wheel, Cadillac announced Thursday. Teasing a steering wheel a year out from a model's debut seems a little unusual, especially considering the CT4-V and CT5-V are on sale now...
  7. Global Cadillac News
    Edgy looks, a 300-mile range, and tons o' tech: the Cadillac of EVs is here. Or rather, it will be … in 2022. Here it is, the next era in Cadillac's 118-year history. The American luxury manufacturer finally showed off a near-production version of the Lyriq, which launches the brand into...

    Chevy's engineers are very clever. And while we're not suggesting that they're infallible, it's important to consider the reasoning behind their decisions before criticizing it. That's kind of the tack Jason Fenske takes in his latest Engineering Explained video on the so-called flaws of the C8...

    On paper, a midsize truck with a diesel powertrain and bad-ass off-road gear sounds like a recipe for fun. And based on our first drive of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, it is - provided you actually get an opportunity to leave the pavement behind. On road, however, in an urban environment...

    This drive of GMC's revised for 2020 Acadia was supposed to be a look at its namesake. A tour of the part of Nova Scotia (not to forget Maine, New Brunswick, and PEI) that gave this big crossover its name. To try and see what life was like for the French settlers that started to arrive in 1604...

    General Motors is "almost there" when it comes to a million-mile electric car battery. That's according to a new report from Reuters, quoting one of the automaker's Executive Vice Presidents. Doug Parks made the announcement during an online investor conference earlier this week, says the...

    General Motors' largest manufacturing facility in North America will soon be powered entirely by the sun, the company announced today. The Spring Hill, Tennessee facility will use 100% solar power by 2022, according to the company. The power will be supplied by the Tennessee Valley Authority...

    We've known that a revised GMC Canyon Denali has been coming since earlier in the year when the brand showed off the new AT4 that was coming for 2021, but we didn't know what it would look like. Now we do, and it's going to get a grille that's a bit busier, though GMC thinks it's heroic...
  14. Global Cadillac News
    Cadillac has officially confirmed that the hotter versions of the CT4-V and CT5-V will be called Blackwing. That's despite (reportedly) not being powered by the Blackwing V8. That's because, according to Cadillac, the name is more about excellence than it is about a particular object. "The...

    School might be out, but that doesn't mean it's not still time to learn. It's just that now you can pick the subject, and we can't think of a better one than Corvettes! Fortunately, neither can the National Corvette Museum, so they've launched the Vettecademy, a YouTube series that's designed to...

    We've probably said this a thousand times before, but with Cadillac's new electric models coming, the brand might be ready to kick luxury ass and take names. Starting with the Lyriq and the Celestiq Hoping that the new names will stiq, GM President Mark Reuss expressed to Car and Driver the...

    One of the trademarks of the Corvette is the ability to do a big smokey burnout on demand. But with the engine in the back and a dual-clutch box, can you still spin the rear tires? Turns out that GM's Corvette engineers thought about just that issue and they have a solution for you. Sort of...

    Cadillac unveiled the new Escalade tonight at an event in Los Angeles. The Escalade is among Cadillac's most important vehicles and is the oldest nameplate in the current lineup.
