General Motors is about to launch a new Hummer, only this time around it will be sold under the GMC brand and feature a battery-electric powertrain. Yes, a name once synonymous with big, gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs is about to go electric.

The 2020 model year will be the last for the Lincoln MKZ and there doesn't appear to be a replacement coming, at least if you're thinking another sedan. Instead, Lincoln will fill the void with more crossovers, some of them with battery-electric power.

Lexus engineers have been spotted testing an LC race car likely powered by the brand's new twin-turbocharged V-8. The engine, which will likely displace 4.0 liters, is expected to replace the brand's current 5.0-liter mill and should appear first in an LC F.
