Remember CarbonPro? GMC Hopes You Do – and Still Want to Pay Extra for It

In launching its next-generation Sierra half-ton last summer, GMC focused a lot of its attention on the brand-exclusive MultiPro tailgate, a bit of door-within-door wizardry that makes bed access a breeze.

Freshly Forbidden Fruit: 2019 Ford Fiesta ST Performance Edition

To our collective horror, Ford decided not to sell the new Fiesta ST in North America. Instead, the automaker chose to cull its passenger car lineup during a period of declining demand and profitability in order to focus on higher-margin trucks, crossovers, and SUVs.
