  1. GMI Commentaries
    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...

    In order to build the Hummer EV, GMC's engineers say they had to flip everything they knew about heavy trucks on its head. In this 16 minute video, GMC tells you exactly what went into the 19-month development period that created the Hummer EV...
  3. Global Chevrolet News
    Back in the early '90s, a new wave of vehicles took over the automotive world. The humble minivan was taking families out of sedans and wagons and putting the traditional car in danger. But with the Caprice wagon, Chevrolet tried to strike a blow for wagons. With one more seat and enough room...

    The mid-engine Corvette was pretty openly created to take on Europe's best. So what do Europeans think of it? Well, it turns out they like it. "Right, I'm coming straight out with it: this thing's bloody awesome," says EVO Magazine's Steve Sutcliffe within seconds of opening his video on the...

    If ever you needed a demonstration of why Chevy went mid-engine for the latest Corvette, this is it. This video shows a C8 Corvette drag racing and roll racing against a CTS-V. The Cadillac, sometimes referred to as the four-door Vette, is powered by the C7 Corvette's V8, so not a far cry from...
  6. Global Buick News
    In 1987, computers weren't as ubiquitous as they are now and almost no one had internet access. And yet Buick still decided to make a brochure for the few computers that did exist. On the latest episode of the Torchinsky Files, Jalopnik's Jason Torchinsky runs you through this weird little bit...

    A few weeks ago, I started watching King of the Hill for the first time (I know, I was missing out) and it was a little disheartening to see just how applicable the show still was. All of the jokes about America's troubles still pretty much play. I feel the same way watching this video about...

    Anyone who has ever been stuck in the mud, watching their tires spin futilely may have, at one point, wondered if adding more bite points could have helped. What if, say, you made your wheels square instead of round? Would it help? No. A resounding, emphatic, uncomplicated no. But also quite a...

    There's nothing quite as comforting and reassuring as seeing something complicated come together quickly and correctly. Especially when your own attempts at putting the same thing together lead to scraped knuckles, sore muscles, and a type of frustration that reveals agonizing truths: I am, in...

    "It's solid, it's planted, it's got amazingly sharp steering." It's safe to say that Matt Farah, of The Smoking Tire and Road & Track, was impressed by his first track experience of the C8 Corvette. In one of the first videos published on the car, the reviews are good. It feels, says Farah...

    Although you might not call the C8 Corvette a feat of engineering, it is still a fascinating look into just how super a mass-produced car can be made. That's why taking a look inside is such a treat. Chevrolet has kindly made this cutaway car to show off the chassis and all of the neat little...

    The sound of an engine is another piece in the rich tapestry of what makes cars so interesting. But why does a V8 sound like syncopated thunder when an inline-four sounds like a freshly opened can of farts? The answer? Because they're different. Now that may sound like a cop-out but it isn't...

    As we found out recently, the C8 Corvette has some very impressive performance figures. Along with a sub-three second 0-60 time, a top speed of 194 mph means the first mid-engine Corvette lives up to its supercar looks. But have you ever wondered if the figures that automakers quote are, you...

    Simon Pagenaud has become the first Frenchman to win the Indy 500 in more than 100 years. Polesitter Pagenaud narrowly beat out the furious, Honda-powered Alex Rossi to take his Chevrolet-powered team Penske car across the finish line in first. Rossi, who had fought his way into the lead...

    Back in the late '50s, two French explorers, exploring the Atacama Desert in their equally French Citroen 2CV ran out of oil. Lacking anything but bananas, they mushed them up, slopped them into the engine, and-allegedly-made it to their stopover without major issue. But would it actually have...

    Our pals over at AutoGuide have assembled a list of the some of the best diesel vehicles available for sale today and GM owns a disproportionate number of spots on the list. The list counts down some of the finest oil-burners available for sale today-although the Cruise won't available for much...

    Being lucky enough to do the thing you love doesn't necessarily mean you're lucky enough to do it to the standards you'd like. But Jonathan Ward is. So it says a lot that he was so impressed by the results of this 1952 Chevrolet Styleline that he tried to buy it back from the person he built it...

    Well, the weekend's finally here. You made it. Given how toxic the news cycle has been in general (let's not forget this week's B plot) and how harrowing it's been specifically this week (if you're suffering, may we suggest the following post, which we hope will help), I'd say it's time get our...

    The Hennessey portfolio is a litany of four-digit horsepower figures and ridiculous upgrades. So a production car has to be truly special to impress the staff. Fortunately for all involved, the Corvette ZR1 is a truly impressive machine. With 755 hp, 715 lb-ft of torque, and a verified top...

    One of my earliest memories is of a cold grocery store parking lot at night. I saw a C4 Corvette's headlights rise from the hood and light up. That's when the Corvette became my favorite car.  As an adult, I know that the Corvette's pop-up headlights weren't particularly special or new, but I...
