  • Have you ever wanted to choose the name for a new car? Chevrolet is giving its fans that chance with the Camaro SS Special Edition in new Emerald Green Metallic paint that's debuting at the SEMA Show in November. The limited model then goes on sale in the first quarter of 2015 wearing the winning moniker. When sales do begin, the special edition will be offered as a coupe or convertible in 2SS trim and a choice of either a six-speed manual with a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 426 horsepower and 420...
  • Last year, Honda gave us the first furtive glance at the next-generation Ridgeline with a shadowy photo of it in profile (above), and it promised that the pickup would "come to market in less than two years." That would have put the truck on track for a 2015 debut, but the automaker hasn't said anything more officially about the new model since then. A new report from USA Today might shed some new light on the mysterious model. It claims that the next Ridgeline has more conventional pickup...
  • A few years back, I was catching up with my childhood friend Adam, who told me he had stumbled upon his late father's tow truck in the used-car listings. When I asked him if he'd buy it, he shrugged, "What for?" Maybe if it was a Corvette instead of a tow truck, he'd have felt differently. One Scott Bachman of southern Michigan did. Cherishing childhood memories of his late father's orange '73 Stingray convertible, Scott began searching for the car recently, and when he found it, he bought it...
  • Just the other day, we showed you spy photos of the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro coupe, which was caught up close by our intrepid spy photogs while testing. Those photos gave us a detailed look at some of the Camaro’s styling changes that we hadn’t seen before, and they followed on the...
  • Each year, Chevrolet unveils a special edition of the Camaro for the spring. While the next version of the popular muscle car will be presented soon, the manufacturer still took the time to develop a unique Camaro that will be shown at SEMA. Based on the Camaro 2SS, this new …
  • “It looks like you hit a body—where’s the blood?” – Everyone in the Office Okay, so road warrior Dave Beard didn’t actually hit a pedestrian with our long-term 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport test car, but it certainly appeared as though he had. With its caved-in hood, cracked bumpe...
  • With a massive number of recalled vehicles and several trips to Capitol Hill, the news out of General Motors hasn't been entirely rosy this year. But the company has been bestowed with one big reason to smile: The GM Warren Tech Center has been chosen by the US Department of the Interior and National Park Service to be a National Historic Landmark. The complex was originally opened on on May 16, 1956 with a ceremony by President Dwight Eisenhower. To make it onto the list that now includes 2,...

  • Just a few months ahead of its first appearance in dealerships, the 2015 Chevrolet Trax has been given a base price: $20,995, including the $825 destination charge. Chevrolet’s new subcompact crossover will be offered in three trim levels—LS, LT, and LTZ—and all-wheel drive will be offered as...
  • The two big American luxury brands of Cadillac and Lincoln are on surprisingly similar paths at the moment with both divisions hoping to redefine themselves and grow popularity. They're still early in the process with no clear winner yet, but things might actually be looking up for Lincoln's latest model, according to a monthly sales analysis from The Motley Fool. It seems, at least early on, that the new MKC crossover might be taking a bite out of the Cadillac SRX's growth. The MKC launched...

  • Ever look at a concept car from a foreign auto marque like Opel and wonder what relevance it will have to you as an American consumer? Well, we'll tell you: at least as far as the Opel Monza concept goes, it could mean a lot. Speaking with Automotive News at the Paris Motor Show, Opel chief Karl-Thomas Neumann said, "You will see the Monza when you see the next Insignia." And the Insignia, we needn't point out, is essentially ported over to American showrooms as the Buick Regal. The...
  • Well, it was fun while it lasted. Chrysler has pulled the plug on its Viper GTS-R racing program. The final outing for the two-car Viper GTLM team in the United SportsCar Championship was last weekend's Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. "Our company has made a business decision to discontinue the SRT Motorsports Dodge Viper GTS-R racing program," Chrysler's Ralph Gilles said in a statement. The move to end the Viper racing program can't really be blamed on results. SRT tied with Porsche for the...
