  • Rolling Coal: A Political Statement Hits Our Nation's Roads That disgusting black smoke you see to your right is this truck owner's unique way of making a political statement that he doesn't agree with the current US Presidential Administration's policies. Rolling Coal, as it's called, is more often than not directed toward eco-friendly symbols like the Toyota Prius. Interesting (or terrible...) way of making your opinion known, eh? 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition...
  • Think the UAW is the only labor union that's angling to give General Motors headaches in the near term? Guess again. GM employees in South Korea's highly unionized and strike-happy workforce have officially approved a strike action against the automaker as labor talks are set to begin. Of GM's 14,000 workers in South Korea, 69 percent approved the strike action, which will mark the fourth consecutive year, provided a deal can't be made. Workers are demanding a revamp of a 60-year-old wage...
  • The Tucker Torpedo is one of the great what-if stories of automotive history. Preston Tucker hoped to revolutionize the industry with a car unlike any other on the road at the time. However, due to a variety of problems, he only managed build 51 vehicles before closing shop. Over time, they have become highly sought-after; ​In 2012, one sold for $2.65 million at auction. That brings us to this Tucker "replica" that you see above because it might be one of the ugliest monstrosities ever put...
  • The big news when it comes to the Cadillac ATS for 2015 is surely the addition of the new coupe model, but that doesn't mean that Cadillac has forgotten about the sedan as well. In fact GM's luxury brand has rolled out a few choice enhancements for the four-door to bring it more in line with the new coupe. Among those changes that we spotted a couple of weeks ago is a new front fascia that incorporates the brand's new wreath-less emblem, and a sleeker front bumper. The interior has been...

  • First Drive: 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT Aston Martins are known for being many things, but affordable is not one of them. While the 2015 V8 Vantage is hardly within the reach of most, its sub-$100k starting price and driver-focused mission makes it an intriguing proposition for people who might otherwise look at Porsche 911s and high-spec Chevy Corvettes. Our man Michael Harley drives it in Germany and finds it to be delightfully tactile and 'old school.' Jeep Cherokee...
  • Though its brand portfolio may have shrunk in recent years with the loss of Oldsmobile, Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer, General Motors still sells its wares around the world under a wide array of brands: Chevy, Buick, Cadillac and GMC in its home market, Holden in Australia, and a whole mess of joint-venture brands in China. In Europe, however, it's all about Opel, with Vauxhall tackling the UK market with a nearly identical product lineup but a different badge. And it's those two brands through...
  • Most of the recalls we cover involve four-wheeled automobiles - and most of those these days have come from General Motors, at that - but every once in a while a motorcycle recall comes across our desks that's just too substantial to ignore. This is one of those recalls. Harley-Davidson has announced a recall of 66,421 of its motorcycles. The units in question are from the Touring and CVO Touring series, specifically those equipped with ABS brakes and manufactured between July 1, 2013, and May...
  • With the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette’s seventh-gen make over one of the boldest in the nameplate’s history—along with the C7 Stingray’s awesome track performance, multiple comparison-test wins, and 2014 10Best Cars nod—the calls around the C/D HQ for a long-term study were loud and persistent.  READ MOR...
