@kenwenzel Much of the advanced design for Buick is coming out of Asia Pacific, but if you're speaking to the engineering that's the million dollar question.

@air8271 thanks for the information on the Cruze. It was not included on our initial spec sheet. We've updated the story.

@djwilliams69 Difficult to say. But I was told at the time they were doing 45 jobs an hour of combined Chevy Sonic/Bolt production. I'd guess at least two-thirds of that is Sonic. And they say...

We've updated the story to be clearer that it take three days to build a Bolt from start to finish.

Friday, September 9, 2016 - 13:15

@Hardee Hamlin Thanks for pointing that out. We've updated the story with the correct figures.

Friday, August 19, 2016 - 16:31

@coolman99 Hearing you loud and clear and hoping to fix that very soon.

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 - 10:46

Jlesaffr, you're right. Thanks for the note. We've updated the story to reflect the correct car line.

As an update to this story, the Colorado diesel customer cited here has since notified us he received word his truck was built and is awaiting shipment to the dealer. Others continue their wait,...

If I recall correctly, the competitive vehicles listed in this article were chosen by size and price. The Leaf is bigger and more expensive than those listed here.

Hyundai making Genesis a stand-alone brand would be a genuine threat. But the one difference is the product. ATS, CTS are as good anything the Germans offer. The XT5 looks great on the show floor...

Monday, January 11, 2016 - 17:55

You're correct! Thanks, we'll update the story and we apologize for any confusion.

Thursday, July 30, 2015 - 09:47

air8271, excellent question. GM says they are not talking about Cruze diesel transmissions at this time. But I agree, a manual would make the Cruze more competitive. I've also driven a number of...

Three hedge funds. It will be interesting to see what sort of precedence this sets.

Monday, February 9, 2015 - 14:10

Barnapkin, that's the million-dollar question: will Colorado/Canyon cannibalize Silverado/Sierra? GM doesn't think so, claiming customers want a smaller pickup and they will pay for a premium one...

Monday, January 12, 2015 - 13:32

Timely comment, is228979. I just asked Mark Reuss the same question. He insists otherwise, saying people are demanding these vehicles more and more because they don't like gasoline and the...

And both BMW USA and MB USA are located in New Jersey, a fine state but hardly the first one that comes to mind when you think of luxury.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 10:17

Perhaps, but to be clear 29 mpg is for the LT1. We're still awaiting FE numbers for the LT4.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 18:21

Chris_B, thanks for the post. In trying to write about the two transmission technologies we chose our words poorly and incorrectly. We apologize for any confusion it may have caused, and thanks...

Friday, June 13, 2014 - 13:12

I can confirm. Beastly. Driving impressions coming soon.

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - 14:17

adamgreen, 21 mpg by itself is not impressive but this is a 5,800-lb. SUV and it is the most fuel efficient in its segment right now. And I understand you're probably being facetious, but this...

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 16:08

Jeff von Q, you raise an interesting point. If I'm not mistaken, GM spent some time in the previous decade attempting to make all of its seats feel the same. The goal was for people to feel like...

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 15:04

GM does seem to favor that squared-off look, especially at GMC. Check out the Terrain wheel wells.

Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 15:17

@ThomasMaloney, GM probably betting on the same idea and they're getting a head start with the Volt.

Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 14:29

Given the lack of popularity in coupes, outside of the sport/luxury segment, I don't think we'll see a 2-door car from GM in the spirit of the Monte Carlo.

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 10:51

davidvscott, that is an excellent observation and one overlooked by everyone yesterday. Thanks for bringing it up.

Friday, November 22, 2013 - 15:07

GM certainly thinks so. A key part of this is GM's desire to grow sales in regions such as California and the East Coast, where its market share is low. This is the sort of product in demand there...

Monday, July 8, 2013 - 14:57

Good point. GM might argue this is an "anthem" spot, sort of setting the tone. Future commercials will focus more on technology, GM says, so maybe those will show more of the truck.

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 15:20

The drive was going superbly well until this point, which made the failure doubly disappointing.

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 10:08

Base price of conventional Spark $12,170. We tested an LT-trim-level model earlier this year at $15,045. And yes, that's 12,000 miles per year on the EV lease (thanks for the alert, we've since...

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 14:59

Excellent point on the Sonic, which explains the 0.08% market share for BEVs.
