What The Hell Is Fiat Chrysler's CEO Really Up To?

Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne doesn’t have a reputation for being a creep. He does have a reputation as a shrewd negotiator, and a man so obsessed with ruthless efficiency he buys sweaters in bulk. So what was dribbling out of his mouth about “hugs” and “forcing a partner,” namely General Motors? Probably more… »8/31/15 5:06pmMonday 5:06pm

The 2015 GMC Sierra Denali Is Like A Stern Father You Fear And Respect

In 2015 luxury pickup trucks are mainstays of the American auto industry. Ford, Ram, and Chevrolet each put their own spin on “capable and comfortable” and frankly they’re all pretty impressive. The GMC Sierra Denali isn’t the fanciest of the field, but it is the original. And it’s still the best.

Report: Chevy's Gonna Start Making Aluminum Trucks Too

So after a whole ad campaign crapping on Ford’s aluminum F-150, sources say GM’s planning “significant model changes” on the Chevy Silverado, Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade for 2018 including more use of aluminum and lightweight steel. You can’t make this stuff up.http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/chevys-anti-al... »8/05/15 12:09pm8/05/15 12:09pm

This Guy's 2015 GMC Canyon Caught Fire And He's Had No Luck With GM

We know from the multitudes of complaints to the federal government that sometimes older GM pickup trucks catch fire. But what happens when a newer GM truck catches fire? What’s it like dealing with the company? We didn’t have an immolated truck to find out, but one reader did. And it wasn’t good.… »7/23/15 1:52pm7/23/15 1:52pm

GM Built A Modern Hybrid Citroën DS That Was Years Ahead Of Its Time 

I’m not exactly sure what was in the water or gin or drug-spiked milk or whatever American car company execs drank at the turn of the recent century, but there seems to have been an odd fascination with iconic French cars. Chrysler almost made a plastic 2CV, and General Motors seems to have built a very advanced… »7/17/15 4:34pm7/17/15 4:34pm

Why Hasn't GM Recalled These Two Trucks With A Similar Fiery Issue?

Last week, under threat of a federal investigation, GM recalled almost every Hummer H3 it had built because of a potentially dangerous design problem. Our analysis of a government database shows complaints of similar problems from owners of Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, two trucks built with the same components… »7/15/15 10:13am7/15/15 10:13am

GM Didn't Recall The Hummer Over Fires Until The Feds Threatened Them

General Motors recalled nearly 200,000 Hummer H3s last week over fears that they might catch fire. But it turns out that GM knew that flaming Hummers were a problem for several years before that. And what’s worse, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration exclusively told Jalopnik that GM did not act until… »7/13/15 5:50pm7/13/15 5:50pm

GM Death Fund Won't Cover All GM Ignition Switch Deaths

To date, General Motors’ outside fund has approved 119 death claims and 243 injury claims related to the defective ignition switch that sparked last year’s recall crisis. The fund is set to wrap up soon. Before it does, critics — including some family members of those killed — are wondering why the fund is covering… »7/01/15 4:40pm7/01/15 4:40pm

Criminal Wrongdoing Reportedly Found In GM Defect Linked To 104 Deaths

A Justice Department inquiry found that GM’s failure to disclose a faulty ignition problem in their cars constituted criminal wrongdoing, the New York Times reported Friday. The penalty has yet to be determined, but it’s expected to be the largest ever faced by an automaker for criminal wrongdoing, surpassing the $1.2… »5/23/15 10:14am5/23/15 10:14am
