January linkfest

The new words are here! The new words are here! Merriam-Webster has added 520 of them to its online word hoard, including coronavirus words (long hauler), identity words (BIPOC, folx), and working words (coworking, makerspace, gig worker). * Speaking of dictionaries, lexicographer Jesse Sheidlower has compiled a new historical dictionary of science-fiction, and it’s out of this world.

Interview: GMC’s Michael Stapleton on All-New 2021 Yukon’s Interior

The brand's Director of Design for Interiors explains the vehicle's overhaul While GMC’s Denali line (which originally appeared as a trim level for the full-size Yukon SUV) has taken on a life of its own over the past  20 years and now enjoys status as a successful luxury sub-brand, the knock against them is that they haven’t quite delivered a premium-level interior. With that in …

See Cars Floating Inside That Ship That Sank (And the Technique They'll Use to "Recover" Them)

Last year a car-carrying ship called Golden Ray capsized off the coast of Georgia, in the St. Simons Sound. All 24 crew members managed to escape, but the cars inside (a mixture of Kias and GM vehicles) did not. Yahoo News says there are nearly 4,000 vehicles on board. The St. Simons Sound's Incident Reponse Unified Command managed to get a LIDAR rig (I'm guessing via submersible drone, but they haven't specified) into the hold of the ship. Using the laser, they were able to create 3D images...

Meet The Davis Divan: The Outrageous Three-Wheeled Sedan That Almost Made It

The history of auto design is filled with failed ideas and strange prototypes that never made it to the production line. In the wake of World War II especially, the industry kicked into high gear.

Inside Cruise’s Fully Autonomous Vehicle

With similar measurements as most SUVs, a new vehicle by Cruise (a subsidiary of GM) requires passengers to forfeit all control of the car. Without a steering wheel or pedals, the interior design references subway cars, rather than buses or vans.

Reasons Behind Cadillac Emblem ‘Controversy’ Finally Explained

Cadillac’s recent decision to move its corporate emblem to the top of the grille was, apparently, a very controversial move.

The Strange Ways That They Used to Transport Cars by Train

Here's a next-to-last-mile problem. Back in the day, after all of the considerable design, engineering, manufacturing, sales and marketing work that goes into producing a new car was completed, automakers faced a logistical problem: How to get the product from their centralized factories to the consumers scattered across the country. In the early days of the automobile, when buyers were few, it was a viable option to stick two autos in a train boxcar and ship them off.But as demand began to g...

A Test Drive, and the Design Story Behind Range Rover's Most Unusual Vehicle

SoHo is one of New York City's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods--and paradoxically, the best place in Manhattan to see every car design on Earth. On Lafayette, bland rideshare Toyotas share lanes with Teslas. On West Broadway's restaurant row, delivery trucks are wedged in with Lamborghinis, Ferraris, the odd Bugatti. The streets in between are the parking lot of the upper middle class, awash with everything else--primarily crossover SUVs of German and Japanese heritage, so numerous and si...

They will make the wheels of a motor-car go whizzing round at fantastic speeds…."That quote is from Roald Dahl's book Danny, the Champion of the World, where the young car-nut protagonist recounts his fathe...

Women Who Pioneered Automotive Interior Design

A progressive hiring spree (at least, for the 1950s) by GM actively sought out women to design the interiors for all of the brands under their umbrella. The women, who held degrees from some of the country’s top design schools and worked internationally prior to being hired, faced sexism but their work pushed forward design as well as women’s positions in the workplace.

China's $9,000 Electric Pickup Truck is Coming to the U.S.

Pickup trucks are big business in the U.S. Never mind annual statistics, which can be mind-numbing; consider that 6,500 brand-new pickup trucks are sold in America every day. The math shows that Ford sells a pickup truck about every 30 seconds, while GM and Dodge each average roughly one pickup truck sale per minute.
