2017 Cadillac Escalade: Our View Review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - It had been a while since we last experienced Cadillac's range-topper, so we spent a week with the latest example, a 2017 Cadillac Escalade four-wheel-drive Platinum. We drove a short-wheelbase version that tickled the $100,000 MSRP mark and lacked nothing on the model's options list except the extra length of the Escalade ESV.

2018 Opel Insignia Review (2018 Holden Commodore Review)

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The new European Opel Insignia has a mountain to climb in Australia. It has to capture the mainstream, as it’s going to wear Holden Commodore badges. And yes it’s front-drive, or in top versions AWD. The cabin is big and finished with a lush quality the Commodore never had, it’s loaded with high-tech features and it’s a quiet comfy machine to ride in. Not such good news for the driver though: it’s a dull steer. That said, we drove about the dullest version in the Euro lineup. Oz versions get more power and a locally developed suspension tune, so there’s hope yet.

The 2017 LaCrosse Is Not Your Daddy's Buick

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Sometimes I fantasize about driving something that is not a minivan or SUV. It would be swell if I could haul my three children, husband, dog and all of their junk in a sports car or sedan. OK, sports car is total fantasy, but sedan? Maybe. Most don't work, but when a car like the all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse comes out, I wonder. Buick claims the sedan's spacious interior can comfortably fit all kinds of large adults, but what does that mean for my largish family?

Review: 2017 Buick LaCrosse is more than a restyled Impala

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - For the 2017 model year, Buick totally reconfigured the big LaCrosse sedan in an effort to differentiate it from the crowd of standard and semi-luxurious sedans on the market. Buick succeeded, taking what used to be just a restyled Impala and making it something unique to the segment.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Review: First Drive

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - No longer a plus-sized entrant among compact SUVs, the redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox takes direct aim at popular models like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue. The new Equinox is less distinctive than its predecessor, which had a certain bigger-is-better appeal among smallish rivals. This one feels more like the rest of them, but it lands there with undeniable refinement.

Toyo Observe G3 Ice: End of Season Review

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - End of winter often means end-of-winter snowstorms, and that's exactly what we got, just as we were wrapping up our long-term test of the Toyo Observe G3 Ice tires on the 2017 Chevrolet Volt. Check out our final review right now!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Goes Small and High-Tech (with video)

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The new, tidier proportioned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox aims straight at the white-hot small-SUV segment. To stand out, the redesigned Equinox brings high-tech features and sound driving dynamics to this popular class. The previous (and bigger) Equinox was a tweener, fitting between small and midsized SUVs. Consequently, it was seriously outgunned when compared with larger models such as the Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Highlander, and it couldn’t compete well with the smaller SUVs like the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4.
