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.
Perhaps, but to be clear 29 mpg is for the LT1. We're still awaiting FE numbers for the LT4.
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...
I can confirm. Beastly. Driving impressions coming soon.
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...
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...
GM does seem to favor that squared-off look, especially at GMC. Check out the Terrain wheel wells.
@ThomasMaloney, GM probably betting on the same idea and they're getting a head start with the Volt.
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.
davidvscott, that is an excellent observation and one overlooked by everyone yesterday. Thanks for bringing it up.
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...
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.
The drive was going superbly well until this point, which made the failure doubly disappointing.
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...
Excellent point on the Sonic, which explains the 0.08% market share for BEVs.
That's the crux of it. Although the CAW argues they are more productive and say they've got a track record for making concessions to keep work and probably would have for Camaro.
There's been talk of cradle-to-grave impact analysis before, so it just might become mandated someday.
Seems to make sense they would use the same diesel from the Cruze in the ATS. We'll see. A fourth gas option would doubtful.
Buick winning over blue-blooded BMW buyers would be a difficult task. But we had an X1 in the office a couple weeks ago and suffice to say if GM gets the Encore right it would indeed be...
Nothing official yet on fuel economy, although GM promises the 2.5L 4-cyl. will be its most efficient engine ever (how couldn't it be, right?) with well over 30 mpg highway. And there's a diesel...
