    It's the news you've been waiting for. As Americans patiently anticipate the arrival of the next-generation Encore and mourn (in small numbers) the passing of the LaCrosse, Buick designers are busy sculpting the next addition to the brand's lineup. Go figure, it's a crossover. Not only that...

    GM isn't interested in producing half-baked hybrids anymore and wants to focus on pure EVs instead, according to its President, Mark Reuss.

    2018 is on pace to be the worst sales year for cars since 1958. That's not to say, though, that the industry is doing poorly.

    It's gotten to the point where those seen buying a traditional sedan or hatchback are viewed as being unlikely candidates for procreation. After all, you can't raise a kid in the absence of a vehicle belonging to a segment where "rows" matters more than horsepower or fuel economy. I blame Lee...

    That "someone else" might be a Chinese buyer. At least, that's what former Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen implied in March, shortly before packing his bags and hitting the road. The premium sedan market stands to grow along with the rest of that country's appetite for high-zoot models, he...

    Generally when we write about sticker prices for the upcoming model year, it's to document a price hike - sometimes minor, sometimes major. Rarely does a manufacturer cut prices, especially in a hot segment. However, it appears that's exactly what The General is doing across three of its...

    Now that former brand president Johan de Nysschen has left the job of running Cadillac to a Canuck, it would be nice to see the brand take a page from Lincoln and revamp its naming strategy. What you see above is purported to be the upcoming Cadillac CT6 XT6, a full-size unibody crossover that's...

    The 2019 Cadillac XT4 got mixed reactions at its debut during the 2018 New York Auto Show, but one thing everyone seemed to agree on is how cool the lighting was. The new crossover from GM's luxury brand has been accused of being somewhat generic in design, but everyone loved the unique...
