25k or No? Ford CEO Discounts Job Loss Claims

Earlier this week we mentioned that Ford’s restructuring plan might closely mimic General Motors’ strategy — resulting in widespread job losses. That theory was backed by an analysis from Morgan Stanley, which presumed the Dearborn-based automaker is likely to surpass GM in terms of layoffs, based on how much each intends to free up. Back […] The post 25k or No? Ford CEO Discounts Job Loss Claims appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: An Absolutely Beautiful Peugeot 504 From 1975

Rare Rides has featured a couple of Peugeot vehicles before, like this 106 from Canada or this 405 from The America. But both of those were sporty cars from the Nineties. Today we have a look at a Peugeot from the Seventies which is most definitely not sporty.

California Auto Dealers Ask Volvo to End Subscription Service

The California New Car Dealers Association is requesting that Volvo immediately end its Care by Volvo subscription service within the state. According to the group, the automaker is in violation of California’s franchise and consumer protection laws.

Banana Bike! An XS650 inspired by 1970s chopper bicycles

I’ll let you in on a little secret: the Bike EXIF team doesn’t always agree on what’s hot and what’s not. But no motorcycle has polarized opinion as much as this whacky Yamaha XS650. In the end, fun and goofiness prevailed. And so we present Bonanza Krad, a bicycle-inspired Yamaha, from the hands and minds at Germany’s Benders Company. Based in Wiesloch, Benders is a five-man team founded by Christian and Raphael Bender. The brothers grew up fiddling with bikes, selling them to finance new...

Spied: 2020 Ram HD, Your Conservative Alternative to GM Design Experiments

The Ford Super Duty line grew fairly grotesque in its latest iteration, and yesterday’s reveal of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD turned some people’s hair white with fright. I’ll admit the Chevy’s design works (looks better than the Silverado 1500, IMHO), but it’s jarring nonetheless.

2018 Kia Niro PHEV Review – A Spreadsheet Nerd’s Dream

General Motors of Canada: A century old in 2018

Of course the big news in Oshawa, Ontario is GM's decision to close its assembly plant there, but the city is also home to the headquarters of General Motors of Canada.

The End of the Line for Internal Combustion Volkswagens?

Certain green-tinged websites would sure want you to believe it.

Waymo launches self-driving car service Waymo One

Waymo, the former Google self-driving project owned by parent company Alphabet, is launching a commercial robotaxi service in the Phoenix area dubbed Waymo One. This milestone, for the company and nascent self-driving technology industry, comes with caveats. The Waymo One self-driving car service, and accompanying app, won’t be available to just anyone.
