“Out with the old, in with the new…” How many times have we heard that saying this week?
In the test garage it is no different, as we say goodbye to the outgoing 2013 GMC Sierra Denali pickup on the heels of the automaker announcing the next-generation coming this year.

This past winter we got our first experience with the new Heavy Duty trucks from Ram. Spring brought a new Super Duty from Ford (along with more HD Rams) and finally, summer 2010 put us in the driver seat of the newest big rigs from General Motors, wearing Silverado and Sierra badging.

I wonder if GM and OnStar have been listening (lurking)? Some of their recent technology announcements have had a bit of a Seattle drawl to them but this latest comes complete with images featuring – Ta Da! – the iPhone as the mobile interface device. OnStar has announced they are expanding remote interface with your new GM vehicle right fromRead more
Once again automakers rolled out some eye candy at the annual North American International (Detroit) Auto Show. And once again it leaves many of us wondering which of the vehicles on display will actually make it into production, will they be affordable and are they really practical. Inspired by this, I am rolling out a list of 10 things to

I guess we should have seen this coming, and many have been predicting it – the new General Motors does not include the Pontiac (or Saturn or HUMMER) brand. I will be sad to see it go as I have many fond memories of legendary nameplates such as Firebird, GTO, LeMans, Bonneville and even Grand Prix. Ever since GM beganRead more
