    After months of teasing, Ducati is finally premiering the 2015 Scrambler at the Intermot 2014 motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany, but this reinterpreted retro bike doesn't actually hit the streets until January of 2015, so there's still some waiting to do.

    1412114400

    Cadillac is in the midst of some big changes. It's got a new chief executive. It's taking some distance from parent company General Motors and moving to a new headquarters in New York.

    This is how GM is hiding new Chevy Volt in public
    1412114400

    General Motors is letting the public know that, well, it's not about to let the public know anything else about the next-generation Chevrolet Volt. But the automaker is willing to talk about its camouflaging process for upcoming versions of the extended-range plug-in. So it's a half-hearted secret, at best. GM actually has a "camouflage engineer" charged ...

    1412109900

    Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird.

    1412107260

    There is such a thing as "bad public relations." We aren't fully sure Walmart understands this, considering that the retail giant is now blaming the injuries comedian Tracy Morgan suffered after his limo bus was hit by one of the company's trucks on his failure to wear a seatbelt, rather than, you know, getting hit by an allegedly speeding semi being ...

    Just the other day, we reported on the first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat selling for a whopping $825,000 at auction.

    The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel shot out of the gate with strong sales by filling its initial allocation of 8,000 orders in just three days, in February. At the time, Ram expected that the oil-burning variant would account for around 10 percent of 1500 output, but it knew there was room to grow if the demand was there.

    Rolls-Royce is, by nature, an exclusive auto marque, but it has been steadily increasing its sales to the point that it could be looking at 4,000 units by the end of this year, setting a new record for the German-owned British automaker.
