32How GM's OnStar is building a better Check Engine Light

Cars Will Warn Of Failures Before They Happen

Soon, OnStar will be used to mine your car's systems and compare its findings against vast pools of data in the cloud.

24Corvette's Performance Data Recorder headed to other cars, will Cadillac ATS-V be first?

For 2015, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gained a novel piece of high-performance technology: The Performance Data Recorder. This trick system combines video from a front-mounted camera with in-car data and GPS information to help drivers record and study their lap times, complete with data overlays. While it's a clever tool for track days, it's also finding popularity as a built-in dash cam of sorts. To this point, the technology has been a Corvette exclusive, but General Motors' executive vic

109GM starting to talk seriously about 200-mile EV

Based On Chevy Sonic, Sources Say

We've been hearing word of a 200-mile EV from Chevrolet for a while now. First, there was General Motors then-CEO Dan Akerson hinting at a $30,000, 200-mile EV that would take the competition by surprise. Then Akerson confirmed that GM is working on a 200-mile EV in a speech in March. LG Chem, which supplies batteries to GM and other automakers, recently said it was working on batteries for EVs with a range of 200 miles. GM's head of global product development Mark Reuss just re-confirmed that t

63GM's Reuss explains why Cadillac is heading to New York

Product Chief Says Move Will "Elevate" The Brand

"We're going to take it to a place [New York] to change the way that we do business around the brand of Cadillac." – Mark Reuss

164GM admits Cadillac ELR no real competition for Tesla Model S

Hey Detroit, Where's The EV That Can Challenge California?

Last year, then-CEO of General Motors, Dan Akerson, made it clear that the company lookouts at the Ren Cen had California automaker Tesla in their sights. "If you want to compete head-to-head with Tesla, and we ultimately will, you want to do it with a Cadillac," he said.

21GM reunites Corvette owner with car stolen 33 years ago [w/video]

Last week, we told you the story of George Talley, a 71-year-old Detroit man who had just received a whole heap of good news. Talley was informed by AAA and the Michigan State Police that his stolen Chevrolet Corvette had been found... after 33 years. While that's well and dandy, getting the car from where it was found – Hattiesburg, MS – to Detroit was a challenge for the retiree. That's when General Motors Executive Vice President Mark Reuss stepped in after hearing the story on a

AddGM's Mark Reuss explains why a performance Cadillac ELR-V won't happen

Hey, I've got enough things to worry about. That's one interpretation of General Motors executive vice president Mark Reuss' response to a question posed by Driving the Nation about the recently-introduced Cadillac ELR plug-in hybrid.

AddA conversation with GM's Mark Reuss on MPG, aluminum and Corvettes

Sometimes the person and the job are a perfect fit

There was plenty to talk about when General Motors hosted its annual mid-December holiday media reception a few months ago. GM had just decided to pull its global Chevrolet brand out of major European markets, where Chevys have competed directly with GM Europe Opel and Vauxhall vehicles, and the US government had sold its last remaining shares of GM stock.

26Corvette Museum sinkhole repair timeline outline, Chevy to restore damaged cars

The eight cars swallowed up when a sinkhole erupted in the middle of the National Corvette Museum earlier this week will be sent to General Motors Design's Mechanical Assembly, which handles restorations for the GM Heritage Collection, in Warren, MI for full restorations. Vice President of Design, Ed Welburn, will oversee the process.

110GMC to get own model not shared with Chevy?

For years, GMC has existed as a brand without a single unique product, reconstituting Chevrolet trucks, SUVs and crossovers with more frosting in exchange for a few extra dollars. The Sierra is a Silverado, the Acadia a Traverse, and the Terrain an Equinox, although admittedly the latter pair are visually differentiated to a significant degree.

199GM's Mark Reuss says America deserves a new wagon

There may be hope yet for the American wagon. Fox News spoke to the new head of product for General Motors, Mark Reuss, and asked him what kind of car he thinks GM should be making.

75Cadillac chief says ATS convertible, wagon on the table

What we do know is that the ATS will wear at least one more bodystyle. That comes from Cadillac head Bob Ferguson, who answered "Absolutely" when Automotive News asked him about the possibility of another variant. What we don't know is what that bodystyle or styles will be.

92GM's Mary Barra becomes first female CEO at global automaker

Akerson himself previously noted that a female CEO at one of the Detroit Three was "inevitable."

17Akerson may leave GM next year, search for replacement not started yet

Already there are many signs that suggest General Motors CEO Dan Akerson will retire next year, but he hasn't formally announced his plans to GM's board, The Economic Times reports, and the search for a new CEO apparently hasn't started. If Akerson retires next year, as is speculated, the move would come sooner than when was expected when he took the job back in 2010.

69GM mulling Chevy Cruze hatchback for US, Buick 'Panamera' among other new models

We've spoken at length previously about the fallacy of poor hatchback sales in the US, and with the runaway success of its Chevrolet Cruze sedan, it's somewhat unsurprising to hear that General Motors is rethinking its decision not to sell an overseas five-door variant in North America as it looks to plug a number of holes in its lineup. GM North American President Mark Reuss admitted during a media luncheon this week that not offering the model "... was a pre-bankruptcy planning mistake," says

26Potential GM CEO successor named one of 50 most powerful women in business

Mary Barra, the current Executive Vice President, Global Product Development for General Motors and widely believed to be a leading candidate to succeed current GM CEO Dan Akerson, has been named to the Fortune's Top 50 Women in Business list for the second year in a row.

20GM's Akerson says female CEO at Detroit automaker 'inevitable'

Running a Detroit auto company won't be a good ol' boys club forever, at least according to the Chairman of General Motors, Dan Akerson. Speaking at the 2013 Michigan Automotive Summit this week, Akerson said that a female CEO was "inevitable," with some sources suggesting the comment may have been a reference to Mary Barra, GM's Senior Vice President of Global Product Development, one of the executives tipped to be in the running to succeed Akerson when he retires.

24GM girding for bumper crop of lease turn-ins

Four years ago, when General Motors was going through a government-baked bankruptcy, it really wasn't able to lease its vehicles to new-car shoppers – lending firms weren't exactly beating down the door with attractive lease deals back then, remember – but once out of Chapter 11, leasing deals once again began in earnest.

133GM says hybrid Corvette no laughing matter [w/poll]

When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."

124GM's Reuss would like a 'nice, light, rear-drive car that's inexpensive'

We'll admit we had to read the quote from General Motors President of North America Mark Reuss a few times just to make sure we weren't missing something obvious. But it is correct – Reuss told Automotive News he'd like "A really nice, light, rear-drive car that's inexpensive..." to join the Chevrolet line-up. Which means, if we've read this correctly, that Reuss wants the same thing that enthusiasts have been caterwauling about, like rutting cats and babies with colic, to join the Mazda M
