GMC has had a firm grasp of the luxury truck market since before it was the thing to do. Now that the competition to cram opulence into pickups is escalating they’re adding more cost to their Denali line. Nice looking truck, but where are the fun gimmicks to get excited about?
Here's some data to support the rhetoric we all keep repeating: "Holy crap, pickup trucks are insanely expensive." TrueCar has calculated which were the most popular $50K+ vehicles and versions of the Ford F-Series, Ram, Chevy Silverado, and GMC Sierra are all in the top ten.
AP and pretty much everyone else covering trucks on the internet is reporting that General Motors has just issued a recall on 370,000 2014 Silverado and Sierras sold in North America due to fires erupting from an overheated exhaust system.
General Motors' new full size pickup trucks have arrived. Unlike pickups of the past, these are high tech machines using efficient engines with cylinder-deactivation to make sure those mpg figures stay as high as possible, even if they do have the aerodynamic profile of a brick on wheels.
For months, General Motors has been teasing us with tidbits about the new Chevrolet Silverado, which is set to come out sometime next year. This is an important model for GM, because pickups only get overhauled about once a decade.
The Legend Boucles de Spa brings historic rally cars out of the garage and into the fields, where they belong. No trailer queens here. Just dirt-slinging Porches, Escorts, RX-7's, and other rally classics.
The Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth has a serious reputation as a legendary rally machine. In case you've forgotten why, want to be reminded, or didn't know to begin with, watching and listening to this vintage racing footage will sum it up nicely.
The GMC Sierra All-Terrain HD Concept's a badass, no doubt. It's big. It's macho. It's American. And unlike the Ford Raptor or Ram Power Wagon, you can get it with a diesel engine.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Yes, I'm back in California this weekend, so it's time for an Alameda flashback!
The Türbö Schnitzel XR4Ti has competed in several LeMons events here in South Carolina, with predictable results each time: KABOOM! Obviously, an XR4Ti must have a turbocharged Ford engine, but there's no law that says it can't be a V8!
Some have accused the second generation RX7 of being the softest of the breed. Of course, a monster V8, like today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe candidate has, can make it much harder. And, it might make you hard too.
