Porsche ranks as most appealing nameplate for the fifth consecutive year. That's according to J.D.

The New Cadillac: All-Wheel Drive XTS, Baby Cadillac Too?

General Motors has a clear path out of bankruptcy, thanks to a Federal court's ruling this morning that the formation of a "New GM" can take place.

2010 Volvo XC60
Pricing: 2010 Volvo XC60 Just Announced

I liked the 2010 Volvo XC60 from the moment I laid eyes on it earlier this year. The XC60 is the Swedish car company's first foray into the compact crossover segment—the same niche that includes a number of new entries this year; the 2010 Lexus RX350, the 2010 Cadillac SRX, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz...Read More»

2009 Cadillac CTS: Old Man Car or Viable Hot Family Car?

 Chris Brogan started it all one day on Twitter. Since he has two kids, he was checking out a new car for his family. "If I think the CTS is hot, does that make me an old man?" Of course, he's talking about the 2009 Cadillac CTS. He drove one on his last visit to Detroit, and that got us all...Read More»

2009 Shanghai Auto Show Coverage

Doom and gloom have had their day--when it comes to auto shows, that is. The 2009 Shanghai auto show just might pull off what all the American and European auto shows held this year couldn't. It may keep the sense of optimism that's evaporated on the Continent and in the U.S. China, after all, is a...Read More»

On the black list -- You know how when you go to the DMV, they have a list of naughty, no-no words for vanity plates? Well, Saudi Arabia has a similar list. At the top of it? "USA". Daaaaamn.

First Drive: 2010 Cadillac SRX

So how weird is this; part of the limited press introduction of the 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover included an autocross course set up at GM's Milford Proving Grounds. What doesn't add up here? Traditionally, one wouldn't expect GM's PR department to put a Cadillac, especially a two-ton luxury...Read More»

2009 Cadillac CTS: We Drive the New Camaro! Sort Of

To be clear, we haven't driven the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro...exactly. But we have just driven a 2009 Cadillac CTS that has much in common with the forthcoming Chevy. Hang on and we'll tell you about it. We've already published plenty on the Cadillac CTS. This is the same car that was all-new in 2008...Read More»

Restructuring Plans: Caddies, 300s, And Grand Cherokees, Oh My

If you've got nothing better to do on a Wednesday morning, we highly recommend you flip through the restructuring plans Chrysler and GM submitted yesterday. (And really, what could you possibly have to do that's more important than that?) Among all the legalese and financial statistics, there's...Read More»

Five Family Cars That Just Aren't

What happens when a "family" vehicle turns out to be less than friendly? I like to think creatively about vehicles that can handle my family and all our gear. Minivans are the most obvious choice, but I've taken a look at other vehicles that might just fit the bill. Everything from crossovers to...Read More»

A few news nuggets to get you through the mid-week slump: Rocket man still zoom-zooming: You knew that Michael Phelps landed a $1 million contract to shill Madzas in China, right?

Roadster Redux: GM Kills Cadillac XLR

Yesterday we reported that the Honda S2000's days are numbered. In yet more bad news for wind-in-the-hair fans, Cadillac announces a Spring departure for its XLR roadster. XLR sales dropped 28 percent for 2008, bringing a total of only 1,250 units last year. The XLR is built at GM's Bowling Green...Read More»

Repo Man
Madoff Loses Lexus And Other Luxuries

Poor Bernie Madoff. First the feds accused him of running a Ponzi scheme bigger than the the pyramid racket that took down Albania. (They're right.) Then people started razzing him for his name--which, in case you haven't heard, is pronounced "MADE-off". And now, another insult: Bernie's forfeiting...Read More»

Video: Presidential Limo Delivers Obamas To St. Johns Church

Check NBC's Today Show video coverage (below) of the Obamas cruising in the new GM-supplied Presidential Limo to St. John's church this morning. We knew this new heavy-duty truck based Limo was quite a beast of burden, but the GM Media pic above doesn't reveal the massive scale of this thing. At...Read More»

Chariot Of Change Looks Awkwardly Familiar

Ever wonder what the collision of Escalade headlights, a custom Caddy grille, an STS rear-end, and little mini-windows with coke-bottle thick oculars all lumped together on a stretched...uhh...maybe DTS, maybe Escalade chassis would look like?
