  • 2010 Buick LaCrosse

    The new 2010 Buick Lacrosse has made waves with its attractive design and overall build quality since its unveiling at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Soon after that General Motors increased the appeal of the car by announcing that it will be available with not only a 3.0L and 3.6L V6, but also a new Ecotec 2.4L direct-injection four-cylinder. According to a new report, a hybrid model is also expected in the near future. Speaking with Ward’s Auto, GM's global vehicle line executive James Frederico appeared to confirm the hybrid LaCrosse but did not disclose exact timing. "We are...

    Transformers 2 movie pushes Camaro sales over the top

    Just last week we profiled the Camaro's rise to above-sticker sales prices due to huge enthusiast demand, including 14,000 pre-orders placed before the car even entered production. But now the new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie is helping to push the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro fan base out...

    GM ends 25-year NUMMI partnership with Toyota

    GM pitching Volt as sporty, green alternative to Prius, Insight

    At first glance, there's very little to differentiate the main contenders for your hybrid sedan dollar - the new Insight looks remarkably like the Prius. For that matter, so does the upcoming Chevrolet Volt. Aerodynamic necessity is a harsh master. But General Motors is planning to set the Volt...

  • 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

    Fans of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro have already placed orders for over 25,000 vehicles, only half of which have been filled since the car went on sale. Demand hasn't let up even a little bit despite the overall downturn in the economy and market, with the average Camaro leaving the lot in a new owner's hands in a matter of days. Prices are staying high due to the demand, too, reports Bloomberg. While most of the cars on the market have some sort of financing or cash-back incentive on them - both from American and import carmakers - the Camaro has none. And it's actually selling for about $500...

    Report: Hummer deal on the rocks, China doesn't want gas guzzlers

    General Motors' deal with China's Tengzhong to buy Hummer was thought to be as good as done in early June, but today reports of chatter on China's state radio casts the sale in a different light. The gas-guzzling SUVs just don't fit with the conservation plans in place in Beijing. So now the AP is...

    First pre-production Chevrolet Volt prototypes hit the road

    You may think you've already seen the 2011 Chevrolet Volt inside and out (online at least) but in truth you've only seen mock-ups. The first real, complete pre-production Volts are currently testing on the streets around GM’s Warren test center in Michigan and these are the first images of...

    Lexus tops J.D. Power Initial Quality study, Porsche and Cadillac close behind

    When it comes to luxury-car quality, taste often plays as big a role as fact, but J.D. Power tries to boil the issue down to a simple metric: problems per 100 cars. The resulting ranks are dubbed the Initial Quality Study, and used to guide consumer decisions. As usual, Lexus rates at the very top...

    The 638hp (476kW) ZR1 and brand new Grand Sport models may be getting all the limelight but the race-bred Corvette Z06 supercar is still tearing up pavements around the country and like the rest of the Corvette range has been updated for the 2010 model year. The 505hp (377kW) Z06 remains one of the...

  • GM Detroit headquarters

    Much talk over the messiness of so-called 'surgical' bankruptcies has spun about the web, and before Chrysler and General Motors went into the process, there was a lot of doubt that they'd be out within the planned 60 days. But Chrysler is already working with Fiat and now GM sees itself possibly setting up the New GM shop by July 15. There are still several technical hurdles to clear in the mean time, however. And much of the process is out of GM's hands, reports the Wall Street Journal. Much of the remaining work rests on the shoulders of the bankruptcy judge, which will have to clear the...

    Fornasari announces 610hp Racing Buggy for series production

    It's hard to pin down the qualities of the 'ultimate' vehicle, but the new Racing Buggy from Fornasari looks to be a fair attempt. Its design, however, is as extreme as its capabilities so it's sure to polarize. With 610hp on tap, routed through an AWD system with 60% rear bias and built around a...

    GM bumps price of 2010 Corvette ZR1 up $2,910 to $107,830

    Supercar performance from a 638hp supercharged V8 engine, carbon fiber bodywork and sharp styling should all add up to a price tag in the $200,000+ range if you look to the competition, but the Corvette ZR1's unmatched value put its sticker price at just $104,920 for 2009. That price will be going...

GM, Daimler, Chrysler and BMW have been jointly developing the two-mode hybrid for some time...

  • 2009 Hummer H2

    Poor sales, growing public concern for the environment and the recession have all added up to weaken General Motors’ chances of finding many buyers for Hummer but the struggling automaker confirmed last week that at least one company was interested in the sale. That company was Chinese industrial machinery manufacturer Tengzhong, which has signed a memorandum of understanding with GM and is likely to conclude the sale by the third quarter of this year. The deal is expected to secure more than 3,000 U.S. jobs in manufacturing, engineering and at Hummer dealerships around the country. The...
