  • If you are in the market for a luxury coupe but would prefer it to be American, then you are in luck because the configurator for the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is now online. Prices for the Cadillac start at $38,990 (including the $995 destination fee) for the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, or $46,145 for the 321-hp, 275-lb-ft 3.6-liter V6. Gearbox options include a six-speed manual on some 2.0 models or a six-speed automatic on both of...

  • It used to be easier to make sense of the auto industry. There were mainstream manufacturers, and there were niche sports car manufacturers. That was before Porsche starting selling more crossovers than it does sports cars, Lamborghini began preparing to go down the same road, and Ferrari introduced an all-wheel-drive hatchback. But long before the arrival of the Cayenne, the unveiling of the Urus and the advent of the FF, the storied marque that is Maserati was already bolstering its sports...

  • Luxury coupes like this new, 2015 Lexus RC 350 have got, to my mind, a more challenging mission than their all-out-performance variants; in this case, the recently reviewed RC F. That's not to say that I think actual owners and shoppers of cars like the RC F, BMW M4 and Cadillac CTS-V Coupe only care about output figures and lap times. In fact I'd say that those are outliers in terms of how they get used most often. But the story that we reviewers tell - and that shoppers in the ego-boosted...

  • Volkswagen may have come a long way since the original Beetle to produce hatchbacks, coupes, convertibles, sedans, wagons and crossovers... but pickups? As we found out in England recently, the Amarok is a notable exception, but it's not the only one. Head down to South America and you can also pick up the Saveiro. Based on the Brazilian-made Gol hatchback, the Saveiro is a neo-Camino-esque coupe with a pickup bed - similar in form to the Fiat Strada that's also made in Brazil for the South...

  • Coupefying hatchbacks is all the rage in the European market these days. Its what Opel and Vauxhall did with the latest Astra, and what Renault did with the Mégane, and now Hyundai is preparing to follow a similar formula, only in a smaller form. While the i30 is the model with which Hyundai competes with the aforementioned Astra and Mégane, to say nothing of the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, it's the smaller i20 - recently introduced in five-door form - which the Korean...

  • 2015 Jaguar F-Type V6 S Coupe reviewed We've enjoyed the Jaguar F-Type in several forms now, but which one would we actually buy? Brandon Turkus makes the case for the middle child F-Type, the V6 S Coupe, with its supercharged V6 engine and absolutely excellent driving dynamics. Read his full report in our review, here. By The Numbers: August 2014 Once again, we've compiled the automotive industry's monthly sales data into one handy-dandy chart for your perusal....
  • My first, ill-fated job in the auto world was at an exotic car dealer in metro Detroit. The job itself sucked, but the cars, they were exceptional. Amidst a sea of Tiptronic Porsche Boxsters, first-gen Mercedes-Benz SLKs and abused second-generation Range Rovers, there were some real gems. In particular, I have fond memories of a trio of undrivable Jaguar E-Types. Two Series II coupes as well as a Series III convertible (that featured a mostly broken roof) spent the entirety of my brief tenure...

  • Automakers always face a difficult decision when it comes to styling their cars. Design them too blandly and nobody will get excited about them. But style them too aggressively and they'll often end up turning off potential buyers. Cadillac, for its part, is no stranger to aggressive design, but when it came to the new ATS Coupe, it elected to tone things down a bit. Speaking with The Detroit News in a wide-ranging interview, Cadillac design director Bob Boniface revealed that the original...

  • We know what you're thinking, and yes, friends, it can be yours. This two-tone Chevrolet Corvette comes from Eagle, Idaho, a product of Z and M Customs in homage to the Corvette Stingray Concept that played the Autobot Sideswipe in the second Transformers film, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. According to the seller, Arcturus401, Z and M only got nine of them out the door before General Motors expressed a lawyerly displeasure, so there are only nine of them in the world, and this is the...

  • Cadillac has been racking up victories with the CTS.V.R in Pirelli World Challenge racing for two model generations now, including recent GT class championships in 2012 and 2013. However, even winning racers eventually have to retire, and it looks like the CTS may be taking a bow at the end of the season. In its place, Caddy is reportedly working on a new racecar based on the ATS Coupe, and it might even get to compete internationally. According to Racer, Pratt & Miller Engineering is...

  • Johan de Nysschen had only been at the helm of Infiniti for two years when he left for a position atop Cadillac. But in that time, he indeed left his mark on the brand. Most visibly, there was the drastic Q-ification of the company's vehicle naming strategy, but beyond that were big plans to beef up the Infiniti brand with the goal of making it a fully competitive luxury automaker. Autoblog spoke with Michael Bartsch, vice president of Infiniti Americas, during Monterey Car Week, and he...
  • Want to see how you'd configure your new Corvette Z06? No, we're afraid that model has yet to be included in Chevy's online configuration tool, but it has been added to the order guide. So now Corvette buyers will have the choice between the base Stingray coupe, the Z51 coupe, the Stingray convertible, Z51 convertible, Z06 coupe or Z06 convertible. That's six variants in all, giving those in the market for the latest American sports car a wealth of choices. Of course, those three versions and...
