Report: Mass Layoffs Coming to Nissan Workforce

A Tuesday report in Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review claims Nissan is poised to lay off up to 10,000 U.S. workers until assembly work can resume. That’s essentially the automaker’s entire U.S. workforce, and the situation looks pretty much the same overseas.

Cool Kat: ICON channels the 80s with a custom Katana

It’s not often the ICON crew gets fresh meat. “Our usual meals consist of antiquated metal, served with a healthy dose of aged mechanicals,” says Kurt Walter, design director for the Portland outfit. Not that he’s complaining: his crew have served up some monster hits in the past, using the most unlikely material. But ‘Brand New Jack’ is different: it’s based on a current spec, 2020-model Katana dropped off by Suzuki USA. Of course, there was a catch. “When Suzuki asked us to cut into a v...

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Duramax Review – The Perfect Engine?

Somebody had to ruin the party. Five years ago the Dieselgate scandal broke, and automakers everywhere slowed down the development of their own oil-burning engines for the U.S. market. Until that point, many automakers were looking at bringing “clean” diesel tech from Europe to the U.S. Of course, compression-ignition engines have been quite common in […] The post 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Duramax Review – The Perfect Engine? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Expect MPG Boost When Re-engined Nissan Frontier Lands

That headline comes with an asterisk, as the fuel economy gains expected from the 2020 Nissan Frontier are only applicable if you planned on buying a V6 model.

While the Environmental Protection Agency hasn’t yet bestowed MPG figures on the “new” truck (same […] The post Expect MPG Boost When Re-engined Nissan Frontier Lands appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ride hailing apps like Uber linked to increased crashes, study finds

Ride hailing apps like Uber and Lyft provide users with a quick and easy way to get about town, but according to new research, they also lead to an increased number of crashes for motorists and pedestrians. Researchers from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health collated data from over 370 million ride-hail trips taken in New York between 2017 and 2018.

Harley LiveWire vs. Tesla Model 3 in a Drag Race

Two or Four Wheels? For most folks, the only thing that matters about the LiveWire is that it’s electric and too damned expensive. However, there’s no denying that the motorcycle’s performance is pretty good. But how good is it really and how does it compare to the Tesla Model 3 Performance? I’m not going to sugar coat things here or hide the results. The LiveWire wins the first race, but only barely. It managed to cross the finish line in 11.67 seconds and reach a top speed of 109.87 mph. The ...
