2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport - A Quick Trip to Indy

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Over the past year, we've spent countless hours and words debating whether the 2014 Cadillac CTS has too much Vsport for its own good. As others have noticed, our 2014 Cadillac CTS never lets you forget its sporty intentions on the freeway.

Cadillac CT8 Will be the Brand's First True Flagship in the Modern Era

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The 2016 CT6 is not Cadillac’s flagship, General Motors product chief Mark Reuss says. That role will be given to an even larger rear-wheel-drive sedan coming within four years. While the Cadillac CT6 is a bit bigger than a short-wheelbase BMW 7 Series, we expect the so-called CT8 to be slightly larger than the long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The CT8, like the CT6, will ride on the new Omega platform, which employs GM’s patented process for welding aluminum.

2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4x4 drive review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The Cherokees waiting in Moab were all Trail-Rated Trailhawks, the best of the Cherokee line when it came to rock-crawling and off-roading.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Updated with New Face, More Technology

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible A Ferrari killer at half the price

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - I’ve been waiting to drive this car for a few months now, and I have to say it’s nearly everything I expected, except for the eight-speed auto, but I’ll get to that in a second. From the outside, this Z06 is about as wild as they come. Screaming yellow paint, black wheels and stripes, the back end looks like a KISS mask to me. I love the wickerbill spoiler. It looks like a race car.

2015 Chevrolet Volt Still a winner in the plug-in game

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - DIGITAL EDITOR ANDREW STOY: What I've always appreciated about the Chevy Volt is that beneath the entire complex range-extended EV powertrain technology, there's a fundamentally good small car....

The Future of American Muscle: Ford Shelby GT500 vs. Chevy Camaro ZL1

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - While a 700-odd-hp version of Ford’s Coyote V-8 isn’t out of the question, the next GT500 could instead borrow the twin-turbo, 3.5-liter V-6 from the Ford GT, complete with its port and direct fuel injection. Good for more than 600 hp, the EcoBoost engine would be mated to a six-speed manual transmission instead of the dual-clutch transaxle featured in the GT supercar. Bet on suspension, braking, and aerodynamic pieces similar to those on the GT350 and GT350R to help keep this powerful pony on the ground.

2015 Jaguar F-Type and 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Head to Kentucky

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Automobile is in a committed Four Seasons relationship with two stellar sports cars. First, there’s the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which we picked up in May 2014, and second, there’s the 2015 Jaguar F-Type S, which came along two months later.

As we near the conclusion of our time with both cars, though, we feel compelled to decide which we’d prefer in a committed relationship.
