  • It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts. Rolled...

  • Take me straight to the review! General Motors introduced the Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Yukon XL in one massive event. Jason, our Guide to SUVs, couldn't possibly cover them all, so he enlisted my help. I wanted to cover the GMCs -- after all, I own one, so that makes me an expert, right? Maybe not, but regardless, here is my review of the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. -- Aaron Gold...

  • I honestly didn't think that GM was ever going to remake their full-size SUVs, but I was pleasantly surprised when Aaron Gold, About.com's Cars Expert, and I were both invited to drive the new offerings. There aren't a lot of visual distinctions between the Chevy and GMC versions, but both are visibly improved over the outgoing vehicles -- which were not that bad to begin with....

  • The hits just keep on coming for GM as the automaker is recalling yet another batch of vehicles. According to Reuters yesterday, the Detroit-based auto group is recalling more than 490,000 of its full-size pickup and SUVs, including 2014 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras, as well as 2015 Chevrole...
  • General Motors can't seem to get its name out of the "bad news" column. Two more recalls were announced late Friday evening that will see The General calling in 490,200 fullsize pickup trucks and SUVs, along with 172,000 Chevrolet Cruze models. For those keeping track, General Motors has issued recalls for an alarming 4.8 million vehicles so far since last month. The Chevy Silverado 1500, Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Sierra 1500 and Yukon models from the 2014 and 2015 model years are being...

  • Aaron Gold, About.com's Cars Expert, graces our pages again, and we're glad to have him here. You see, General Motors chose to launch the new full-size SUVs from GMC and Chevrolet all at the same time on a unique event that saw journalists driving from Tahoe to Napa, meeting in the middle and switching vehicles. I can honestly say it was a first for me. I recruited Aaron to review the GMC products, while I took care of the Chevys. It worked out pretty well, and you get a wider range of opinion...
  • General Motors might be mired in several recalls, as well as the ongoing investigations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Congress into the automaker's response to those recalls. However, the company can celebrate taking the title of the US' second-largest advertiser in 2013. According to Ad Week examining a recently released study, total advertising spending in the US posted its fourth consecutive year of rising expenditures with 0.9-percent growth to $140.2 billion....

  • Automotive enthusiasts often wonder aloud - ourselves included - why General Motors would choose to keep GMC while sending Pontiac (and Saturn, and even Oldsmobile before it) into the great automotive graveyard in the sky. The answer, as is so often the case, is profit. It's much easier for GM to rake in money hand over fist by rejiggering the trucks, crossovers and SUVs that it would already be developing for Chevrolet and making them a bit more luxurious and *ahem* "Professional Grade" with...

  • A 2015 GMC Yukon burst into flames while on a test drive in Anaheim, CA on Sunday after smoke filled the cabin. Residents of the neighborhood where the driver abandoned the redesigned Yukon reported hearing a series of small explosions (likely the tires, based on the video), according to a report from KTLA and The Los Angeles Times. No one was injured in the incident, which The Times reports occurred after a possible oil or fluid leak. As you can see in the image above, the Yukon was engulfed...
