The Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, Michigan is known as the largest single-day event that brings in people from all around the world. We even heard the car count was going to be in the area of 50,000 vehicles, including well over a million people.
You can see just about anything rolling down Woodward during the Dream Cruise, but we parked it for a bit in Ferndale to check out the classics at the Emergency Vehicle Show. Here are our top three favorite cop cars, fire trucks, and ambulances.
Among few changes for 2018, the tire pressure monitoring system adds a fill alert that monitors how much air is pumped into a tire to prevent overfilling, and Denali models get a standard automatic heated steering wheel. The All Terrain Package for SLE and SLT trim levels is available with five, six or seven seats; it came only with five seats in 2017.
These three-year-old cars are worth about half of their original price.
We’re still waiting for the next generation of “The Beast” presidential limousine to arrive in Washington, but a stretch with ties to President Trump will soon be on display near Chicago. The Volo Auto Museum in Illinois has purchased one of two known “Trump Edition” prototype limousines that were commissioned in 1987. The stillborn project was a joint effort between Cadillac, Trump and the now defunct Dillinger-Gaines Coachbuilders with the intent of building a 50-strong fleet that would be used primarily for VIP service at Trump’s hotel properties.
With its Denali line of vehicles, GMC has made the working man's ride very cushy.
GMC’s Sierra Heavy Duty doesn’t need to be stylish or shiny; it doesn’t need to be comfortable or capable of providing wireless Internet to eight different devices and it certainly doesn’t need to be fuel-efficient. While other vehicles perform on racetracks, drag strips and intricate off-road courses, the heavy-duty pickup puts on its show on a more modest set of stages: the worksite, the farm, the ranch and the marina, to name a few. It comes down to power and durability.
An update this year gives Encore a fresher look inside and out. The exterior features a revised front end complete with a new grille that ditches the classic Buick waterfall and goes for a stylized, chrome winged look. The LED headlights are narrower and are topped by a less fussy hood design. The rear doesn’t have the elegant look of the nose. Overall, Encore incorporates some of Buick’s new styling cues, but on the hatchback body style they conspire to give Encore a short, portly look.
The days are over when a car from one General Motors division was pretty much the same as a car from another, just with a different grille.
