  • Chevrolet announced at this week's Consumer Electronics Show that the 2015 Corvette Stingray will come with an optional Performance Data Recorder, which will not only give 'Vette drivers a chance to review valuable track data to improve their performance, but will also almost certainly translate into exponentially more Corvette-based dash cam videos for the Internet to enjoy in the very near future.
  • If General Motors has their way, in-car boredom might be a thing of the past very soon. GM is planning an extensive rollout of wireless internet technology in their vehicles, one that will see most 2015 Chevrolets equipped with built-in AT&T 4G LTE. Read more...
  • You can brag to your friends about the amazing weekend you had at the track all you want, but without a witness, you might as well be boasting about that monstrous fish that got away. So for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, GM is including what it calls its Performance Data Recorder which overlays telemetry, speed, and location data over a 72oP video recording of everywhere you've driven—basically giving you instant replay of your hoonage so you can back up your bragging.

  • The 1980s are not remembered as a high point for General Motors. Their vehicles from that decade were mostly sad machines that lagged behind European and Japanese rivals and reeked of questionable quality. But even then, the General could put out some innovative and unique ideas from time to time. Read more...
  • One of my earliest automotive memories is of my father's 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. As a wee lad, I remember a car that was seemingly endless in size, power and presence. Awash in leather and chrome, this was clearly a vehicle whose main mission in life was to announce to the world that the owner had arrived - both literally and figuratively. As the current flagship model of the Cadillac brand, in many ways the XTS is the spiritual successor to that Fleetwood. But where the Fleetwood...
  • And no, it's not because their Uncle Mort had a little too much eggnog and started talking about the Jews again or because Grandpa asked them what they're really gonna do with a Master's of Fine Arts degree for the thousandth time. GM had a rough Christmas because of December sales. Read more...
  • Chevrolet has taken a page from the Porsche playbook. The lightweight 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 costs $20,000 more than the Camaro ZL1. And it'll be worth every penny. Read more...

  • These days any full-size body-on-frame Chevy sedan is seen as a donk, box, or bubble waiting to happen. But what is one of these cars like outside of the world of candy paint and chrome thuddies? Read more...
  • In a song honoring one of Chevy's all-time great mills, the Beach Boys used to sing she's real fine my 409. Todays Nice Price or Crack Pipe Trailblazer SS might have you intoning it's real great with a 408, but of course that's only if its price hits the right chord. Read more...

  • When thinking luxury automobiles, we typically think German. Audi, BMW and Mercedes have been the kings of craftsmanship going on a decade now. It is now Cadillac's time to dethrone the Germans and reclaim the title of greatest luxury auto manufacturer. However, if General Motors (GM) wants to slay the three-headed German monster they've got to visit the history books to understand how they first lost the crown. Read more...
