    J.D. Power and Associates has just released the results of its 28th-annual dependability survey and GM-Trucks.com noticed one interesting aspect of the report others are not reporting. General Motors' least-American-made brand, Buick, is its top brand for reliability. GM's flagship luxury Brand, Cadillac, is ranked last among GM's brands in dependability, and it is not even close.

     

    Buick's top-selling model, the Encore, is built in Mexico, Spain, and Korea. It was originally designed as a model for other markets. Buick's second-leading seller, the Envision, is made in China and imported to America. The Cascada, Buick's convertible, is also an overseas import. Combined, these models account for half of Buick's total sales (in 2016).  Contrast this with the American-made Toyota Camry, which is the highest-rated...

    Our West-Coast correspondent at GM-Trucks.com, Chris Hawkins, spotted a news item we felt should be shared with the group, if only for future reference. Last week, John Voelcker of Green Car Reports, and also the Detroit News, overviewed the latest word on a lawsuit filed against General Motors claiming that the Chevy Cruze diesel was falsely advertised as a "Clean Vehicle." The suit goes back to June of 2016, but the important recent news is that, although many of the aspects of the suit have been...

    The answer is "YES!", when the wind is at its back. GM recently took the new ultimate Camaro to the High Speed Oval at Germany’s Automotive Testing Papenburg GmBH proving ground. Top-speed runs are always the average of two runs, one in both directions. That accounts for wind speed on the day of the run. The new Camaro ZL1 laid down two official times of 202.3 mph in one direction and 193.3 in the other. That averages to 198 MPH.

    Stopping by the local Chevrolet Dealership as a teenager in the late 90's was always a lot of fun. I distinctly remember strolling through the models on display, dreaming and drooling over the Corvette Grand Sport and S-10 ZR2. As I climbed through the display vehicles I also was quite guilty of grabbing the dealer model information books by the armload to obsessively read over later at home.

    General Motors has confirmed that it may leave the European market, or at least sell-off its European brand operations on the Continent. Media speculation of a sale of the Opel and Vauxhall brands. GM confirmed the speculation yesterday in a statement saying:

PSA Group and General Motors confirm they are exploring numerous strategic initiatives aiming at improving  profitabilit...

    In just the last two weeks we've gotten our firstand second look at the next generation T1XX full size truck platform undergoing preliminary testing in the wild. While on the surface these photos show little more than a heavily padded truck with no discernible markings, a closer look starts to connect the dots on what the future face of the 2019 Silverado just may look like. 

     

    Chevrolet is no doubt moving towards a "family face" between all products. In fact, General Motors a...
