  • Autocar wants to find Britain's best driver's car, and it's challenging a murderers' row of some of the world's best performance vehicles to find out, including the latest Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. All of them were therefore assembled at the Castle Combe Circuit to find a winner. If it wants to take the crown from this pack of mostly European competitors, the 'Vette has to beat some steep competition. Its challengers include monsters like the Ferrari 458 Speciale, Ariel Atom 3.5R and Jaguar...
  • "For this customer, smaller is smarter. " - Rich Latek. The pickup truck segment has never been more competitive in the United States, and General Motors is betting a "smaller is smarter" strategy will help lure new buyers into its fold with the additions of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon to its lineup. The trucks are launching this fall, and except for a minor recall this month, they've received positive publicity for their looks,...

  • The Z51 option pack was hugely popular full-stop, with a total of 21,105 examples in all bodystyles ordered. For its first year out of the gate, the 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray did very well for itself, selling 37,288 units worldwide with 34,678 of the new sports cars hitting the market in the US alone. In fact, the total number was one of the best figures for the Corvette in the modern era. But the full breakdown of all the 2014 C7's...
  • The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is the latest effort from General Motors to feature the brand's new 4G LTE wireless Internet option.  At its core, the system is comprised of a mobile router that connects to available 4G LTE networks and then serves as a hotspot for any Wi-Fi-enabled mobile …
  • The last few SEMA shows have seen a lot of Sonics. Like, a lot. For the 2014 affair, Chevy has prepped a pair of the wee cars to showcase the latest Chevrolet Performance and Chevrolet Accessories gear. Chevrolet Sonic Performance Concept Swathed in a coat of Chevy’s unmistakable Synergy Green paint...
  • Imagine hitting the track in a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports coupe that's affordable and has pretty good parts availability. It might sound like a pipe dream, but it's actually quite possible, if you're willing to think a little outside the box. The Pontiac Fiero is out there just waiting for a little work to turn it into a competent racing machine. Think about it for a second. Of course, we would all like to be snaking through the curves in something exotic, but what happens when you...
  • General Motors' top lawyer, Michael Millikin, will retire in early 2015, the Detroit automaker announced Friday. Calling the move a voluntary decision, Millikin, 66, will stay on until a replacement is found. Millikin, whose career at GM has spanned nearly 37 years, has served in a number of roles for the company, largely staying out of the spotlight. That changed dramatically when he was called to testify on Capitol Hill this summer to explain GM's handling of recent ignition-switch recalls,...
  • Looking to land a blow in a pickup news cycle that’s lately been dominated by Ford—first with the aluminum 2015 F-150 and then the Super Duty diesel’s massive output numbers—Chevrolet pitted its Silverado 2500 HD against a Ford F-250 in a torsional flex-off and filmed the results. Employ...
  • Despite red tape and outright bans in some areas, on-demand taxi services like Uber and Lyft are becoming hugely popular ways to get a ride in bigger cities. So what's it like to drive for one of these services? Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel wanted to find out with a dash of humor thrown in. He became a registered Uber driver and started picking up fares ... at least one, anyway. Becoming an Uber driver requires owning a new-enough insured vehicle and passing a registration procedure...
  • It’s no secret that the Chevrolet SS sedan we know and love is but a few tweaks removed from the Australian Holden Commodore. In fact, Chevrolet says that the V-8 sedan’s Down Under heritage has become something of a source of pride for many owners and fans of the stateside SS. Looking to highlight...
  • When one door closes another one opens - at least that's how things seem to be shaking out at Cadillac, which is introducing the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe hot on the heels of the CTS Coupe riding off into the sunset.  The entry-level ATS Coupe plays a different role than …

  • The pickup market is so competitive that all three major American makers are constantly trying to find a way to prove their product is the best. The new 2015 Ford F-150 is grabbing headlines at the moment by winning awards and posting segment best numbers. But in a new video, Chevrolet is taking aim squarely at the 2015 F-250 Super Duty in a battle of heavy-duty truck supremacy against the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD... well, in a single metric anyway. The big numbers from pickups often come...
  • Attorneys are continuing to fight to prove that the recalls from General Motors this year allegedly affect vehicle resale values. A $10 billion lawsuit, which is hoping to obtain class-action status, could cover as many as 27 million vehicles and consolidates hundreds of smaller claims. This latest case appears to be related to the one from June in California but is now in a New York court. Both are brought by the law firm Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP. The case covers people who bought or...
  • With the 2015 Ford Mustang firmly on the scene, the inevitable comparisons with its arch rival, the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro are just starting to trickle out. Over the next several months, you're likely to be inundated by every outlet's muscle car comparison, whether it be the turbocharged Ford against the V6 Chevy, a V8-powered convertible comparo or what we have here, a competition between each vehicle's performance upgrade. Motor Trend has pitted the Camaro SS 1LE against a Mustang with the GT...
