Report: Amid Cost-cutting Spree, GM Looked at Unloading Its Global HQ

General Motors’ Renaissance Center headquarters dominates the Detroit skyline, announcing America to Canadians even before they reach Windsor. A symbol of industrial might and the big business of autos, the 5.5 million-square-foot complex has been home to the biggest of the Big Three since GM acquired the property in 1996. According to a new report, […] The post Report: Amid Cost-cutting Spree, GM Looked at Unloading Its Global HQ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Cadillac’s CT4 Debuts at End of Month, Joined by a Brace of Vs

It’s a period of flux for Cadillac’s sedan lineup, one that mirrors the changes occurring across the segment as a whole. Old models are out, and in their place, a range of updated and restyled offerings aim to rekindle America’s love for traditional four-doors. Fewer restyled offerings, one should note. As nameplates bleed out of the […] The post Cadillac’s CT4 Debuts at End of Month, Joined by a Brace of Vs appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mercedes C-Class May Fall On Its Sword for American-made SUVs

Mercedes-Benz is reportedly considering moving C-Class production out of America to make room on its Alabama assembly line for more high-margin utility vehicles. Despite being the brand’s best-selling sedan in the United States, Mercedes knows it has to acknowledge the public’s growing propensity for luxurious light trucks. While ignoring the present doesn’t seem like the […] The post Mercedes C-Class May Fall On Its Sword for American-made SUVs appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

HELL FOR LEATHER – Ducati 749 ‘Arriera’

Every country has some national symbols that they are proud of. America has the bald eagle, Australia has the kangaroo, England has the Queen and Argentina has the gaucho. What is a gaucho, I hear you ask? The gauchos were fearless and skillful horsemen who used to handmake tools for carve out wood and metal. These men were legends and are a significant part of the folklore in Argentina, where bike builder and sunglasses entrepreneur Sebastian Achaval is from. “I am from that part of the world...

April 2018 U.S. Auto Sales: Volume Shrinks, but New Crossovers Are a Hit

With an extra selling day compared to the same month one year ago, auto sellers in America had the chance to improve their numbers in April. Subaru, the two Korean brands, and Nissan all managed that feat, while the likes of Fiat Chrysler and Toyota did not. Honda, for one, was roughly flat. It all […] The post April 2018 U.S. Auto Sales: Volume Shrinks, but New Crossovers Are a Hit appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Letter From The UK: More Fun Than It Should Be

The Suzuki Jimny is one of those vehicles: it’s not glamorous but it sure is gorgeous.  Geoff Maxted of DriveWrite Automotive Magazine goes in for some hard-hat motoring. Unfortunately, the Suzuki Jimny is not available in the United States which makes us sad. A few weeks ago I made mention of the Ford Focus Active, a very good car that as of right now, America will not get. In the meantime I have been driving the Suzuki Jimny, a small G-Wagen style off-road hero that is taking much of the res...

Boondocking again at the Hugo SWA (State Wildlife Area)

The day started with one goal and after several factors ended up with me boondocking at the Hugo SWA, one of my favorite boondocking spots. Late sunrise at Oil Well Flats BLM site First I thought I'd find a spot to park near Pikes Peak and take Yagi up America's Mountain.  The search for a spot to leave the RV and trailer proved fruitless and after wasting some time on the southern portion of Rampart Range Road, the weather had moved in and going up the mountain was no longer attractive.Note t...

Get Your Business Ready for Gen Z: Millennial Auto Trends Part III

In 10 Years, Your Buyers Will Be From Gen Z. Will You Be Ready? We are all familiar with Baby Boomers, Millennials, Gen Xers and Gen Yers, but how much do we know about the latest Gen Z? The Pew Research Center began studying the largest generation, Millennials, in 2009. Ten years later, researchers saw that the Millennial classification needed a cutoff point. That’s when Generation Z entered the ring: the “just Google it”, mobile-first, true digital native generation. Until the next ge...

Volkswagen of America Boss Envisions Getting People Out of SUVs and Into a Pickup

A Volkswagen concept that’s not really a concept appeared in New York City this week, aimed at gauging the American public’s level of interest in a unibody pickup that leans heavily in the direction of “crossover with a bed.” While South American customers will soon be able to purchase a VW Tarok, the automaker says […] The post Volkswagen of America Boss Envisions Getting People Out of SUVs and Into a Pickup appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Letter From The UK: It’s All About Influence

Cars today are better than ever, but are they also more bland than ever? And are today’s cars reviews honest? Can you believe what you read online? Geoff Maxted of DriveWrite Automotive Magazine examines in this Letter From The UK. There is absolutely no doubt that almost all cars today are perfectly fine; panel gaps like yawning chasms are a thing of the past and shut lines are millimetre perfect. Car bodies no longer rust away at the first sign of rain and the choice of paint and finish is a...

‘Adulting’: How Millennials Are Shaping Auto Trends Part II

We’ve heard all the adages about millennials before. They’re entitled. They constantly need praise in order to be motivated. They whine about wanting to work remotely. They switch jobs too often. They live in their parents’ basements and can’t stand on their own two feet. Their lives take place as much online as they do in honest-to-goodness “real” life. They demand instant gratification, want everything online, and are oddly enamored with brunch. Millennials (also known as Gen Y) get a bad r...

More ‘Crossover’ Than Many Crossovers, Subaru’s 2020 Outback Heads for New York

It is arguable that the original Subaru Outback was one of the vehicles that blazed trails for the whole “rugged wagon” movement that eventually morphed into the crossovers we see flooding driveways across America. Those of you with long memories will recall that “Outback” was originally a trim on Legacy wagons, before making the jump […] The post appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

America’s Second-cheapest Nissan Bows Out of the Market

Journalists who holler nonstop for “affordable cars!” have one less model to choose from. As it isn’t a vehicle patterned off the original Fiat 124/Lada 1200, with the quality and handling of a BMW, suffice it to say the Nissan Versa Note probably didn’t rank high on their might-buy list. And yet the Versa Note […] The post America’s Second-cheapest Nissan Bows Out of the Market appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Letter From The UK: Ford & The Farm Shop

Are today’s cars nothing more than technologically-advanced covered wagons?   As our perspectives change with time, what role does the modern car play in our lives? Geoff Maxted of DriveWrite Automotive Magazine examines in this Letter From The UK. ‘Quaint’ is an old Middle-England word that once meant wise or skillful but, since around the 18th Century, has come to mean oddly picturesque or pleasing in an old fashioned way. Why, you ask, this lesson in Olde English? Well, that’s the kind of p...

U.S. Auto Sales, Q1 2019: Plenty of Red, Plus a Few Bright Spots

Talking heads have been warning for days that the auto industry should prepare itself for a rougher than usual ride in 2019, speculating that sales for the first quarter would be softer than what we’ve seen in past years.

Here’s the Hyundai Tucson N Line Americans Probably Won’t Get

This is certainly *not* the theoretical hot crossover we referred to in today’s QOTD. It’s not hot; rather, it’s merely ever so mildly warmer, in a sense, than a stock Tucson. While Hyundai’s Tucson N Line is a vehicle currently targeted at European buyers, it’s possible the automaker could bring it to America in the […] The post Here’s the Hyundai Tucson N Line Americans Probably Won’t Get appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QUICK SILVER. Stephen Brisken’s Ducati 900 SS Cafe

Written by Andrew Jones How many 21-year-olds do you know with a killer workshop and an amazing bike collection? The answer is probably zero. That’s because – unlike other things in life – getting older seems to be a distinct benefit in the bike scene. With no more kids, years of riding experience under your belt and the mortgage paid off, many of us find ourselves in a position where those dream bikes we’ve always wanted are finally within reach. Not only that, but you also have the time to ...

How to Become a Pothole Warrior

If driving on post-winter roads feels like you’re operating a Lunar Roving Vehicle across craters on the moon, you’re not alone. Along with spring flowers and showers come potholes. Cities like Omaha, DC, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, New York, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, LA and Seattle (to name a few) are no strangers to the pothole game. Freeze-thaw cycles, excessive heat, road salting and high traffic volume are main contributors. When snow and ice melt, the...

2018 Lexus NX 300h Review – In the Eye of the Beholder

  The luxury crossover realm is a weird one. The market has been built on the age-old plan of taking a more basic model and adding profitable flash.

Indeed, starting out with the best-selling non-truck in America means building something distinctive atop […] The post 2018 Lexus NX 300h Review – In the Eye of the Beholder appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Eye-wateringly Expensive Luxo-barge Assembly Bound, Not Surprisingly, for America

Forget Teslas and Black Label Lincolns and the upper strata of truckdom — the most expensive vehicle produced in North America will soon be a German offering with an MSRP about 100 grand higher than its domestic neighbors. An American production site for this vehicle is appropriate, however, as it’s an SUV; the first offered by […] The post Eye-wateringly Expensive Luxo-barge Assembly Bound, Not Surprisingly, for America appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
