In Fiat Chrysler-Renault deal, globalism is about to collide head-on with populism (FCAU)

The proposed FCA-Renault merger pits the declining logic of globalism against surging worldwide populism.

The rise and fall and rebirth of General Motors (GM)

General Motors is 110 years old. Founded in 1908, GM rose to dominate the US auto industry. But it declined in the 1980s and 1990s, and in 2009 it was bailed out and went bankrupt. By 2019, however, the definitive American corporation had recovered.   The story of General Motors is one of rising, falling — and rising again. Born from the wild early days of the Detroit car business, "The General" made it through the Great Depression and rose to become the model of an American corporation. At o...

We drove a $31,000 Nissan Altima to see if it's ready to take on the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Here's our verdict.

The Nissan Altima is one of the most popular midsize sedans in the US and was only outsold by the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.

Review: 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel

For someone who loves reading and writing about cars, it should come as no surprise that I have my favorite automotive journalists. One of them is Ezra Dyer. In his early days at Automobile Magazine, he would rhapsodize about his father’s extraordinarily basic Dodge Ram pickup truck. Like e, Ezra is a New Englander. As a young kid, my grandfather, a retired forest ranger, would put me in his giant Dodge pickup he used for runs to his charcoal kiln. It had no carpet, not even a radio; that truck...
