29Hear the new Cadillac CTS-V torture some tires

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V seems like the type of wonderful gift that Santa might cook up in his workshop for one extraordinarily good boy or girl. However, the first chance for most people to actually see the super sedan and its carbon fiber pieces in real life is at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January. As a stocking stuffer until then, Caddy has released this video featuring the latest V-Series roasting its tires better than any dinner for the holidays.

Most Powerful Cadillac Ever Prepares To Storm Detroit Auto Show

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V arrives with a massive 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 engine, packing 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. This means Caddy's baddest V model ever can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 200 mph. Here's everything we know about the beast so far.

Just Your Typical $73,000, 328-Horsepower, Stick-Shift Automobile

Since I started writing about and reviewing cars in 2006, I've done an uneven job of tracking every vehicle I've been in, each year. Last year I made a resolution to be better about it, and the result is a spreadsheet with model names, dates, notes and some basic facts and figures.

9GM ignition switch recall fund reaches 100 approved claims for deaths, injuries

The General Motors ignition switch compensation fund has the macabre task of determining whether to pay settlements to those hurt by the automaker's faulty parts.

It has now offered 100 people remuneration for injuries or deaths due to the bad switches.

610 automakers shack up in Detroit hotel to talk Takata airbags

Since Takata has decided not to take the lead concerning potential issues with its airbag inflators, the automakers have. Perhaps that's unsurprising, since it's the automakers, not Takata, that will take a beating on the dealership floor if consumers decide its models are a health hazards. The Detroit News reports that Toyota, Honda, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Subaru met in a hotel conference room near the Detroit Metropolitan Airport last week to sort ou

28The Volt Dance had precedent; meet the Chevy Footlockers

Marketing in the auto industry can get weird sometimes – really quite bizarre, in fact. For example, remember the Chevy Volt dance from the 2009 Los Angles Auto Show? If not, a group boogied to a song about the electric car, and it was every bit as awkward (and hilarious) as that sounds. In fact, that innocent bit of promotion lives in infamy, as some pundits grabbed hold of it during General Motors' bailout and asked why America's tax dollars were going to such things.

1Watch this driver put 50 years of Vauxhalls through the wringer inside the factory

31Chevy Trax engineer says GMC version possible

The Buick Encore is doing so well and its platform-mate the Chevrolet Trax has such good reviewer vibes going for it already, that a GMC version hasn't been ruled out.

6GM closes first German auto plant since WWII

22Canada bailed out GM, Chrysler without really knowing what they were getting into

The Auditor General of Canada recently issued a report that makes at least one thing clear: it doesn't know how effective Canadian government loans given to General Motors and Chrysler in 2009 were in ensuring the viability of both companies. That year, the Canadian and Ontario governments dished out $10.8 billion CAD ($9.6B US) to GM and $2.9 billion CAD ($2.6B US) to Chrysler, but hadn't yet sorted out precisely how the funds were to be used before disbursing them.

12GM Futurliner No. 10 gains National Historic Vehicle Register status, finds home

We couldn't even begin to count all the concept cars that General Motors has made over the years, but what we do know is that few have carried the kind of legend that the Futurliners have. Of the dozen such buses GM made, No. 10 (similar to the one pictured here) has arguably had the most colored history, but now it's finally getting the recognition it so richly deserves.

Candice Anderson was driving a Saturn Ion in 2004 when she struck a tree. The incident injured her and killed her boyfriend in the front passenger seat. When investigators found no skid marks or signs of evasion and a small amount of Xanax in her system, Anderson was indicted on a charge of intoxicated manslaughter and eventually pleaded guilty

A Texas judge cleared a woman Monday for a car accident that killed her fiance in 2004, after General Motors acknowledged that her car would have been among millions being recalled for a problem that may have contributed to the death.

2GM names Carlisle head of Canadian operations

General Motors may be an American automaker first and foremost, but it can see straight into Windsor, Canada from its Renaissance Center headquarters on the Detroit River, and has considerable operations in the True North.
