  1. It's easy to say that it's not about the score when you're down a few points. In General Motors' case, the new-for-2017 turbodiesel V-8 that's optional on its full-size pickups comes up a little short on torque compared to the equally new Ford F-250. But is there really a difference between the 910 pound-feet the GMC Sierra HD's 6.6-liter V-8...View the full article

  3. The 2017 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty truck lineup builds on the basic half-ton Sierra with a stronger frame, beefier axles, and the ability to tow significantly more thanks to its new-for-2017 optional turbodiesel engine. We've rated the Sierra 2500HD, the most popular version of the automaker's heavy-duty trucks, as a 7.0 overall thanks to its high...View the full article
  4. As we tumble headlong into the Era of the Connected Car, one thing engineers are struggling to address is the possibility that evildoers might hack our cars' burgeoning networks. Unfortunately, a new report suggests that automakers have left open a fairly large back door for the bad guys--a back door that could, quite literally, allow hackers into...View the full article
  5. All-new 2018 Hyundai Accent adds lots of safety tech An all-new version of Hyundai's smallest car sold in the United States has made its debut, with what the Korean automaker says is a leap forward in terms of refinement and available safety features. More data suggests that traffic deaths rose sharply in 2016 In January, the National Highway...View the full article
  6. An all-new version of Hyundai's smallest car sold in the United States has made its debut, with what the Korean automaker says is a leap forward in terms of refinement and available safety features. The 2018 Hyundai Accent that was unveiled at the Toronto auto show is incrementally larger than its predecessor thanks in part to a wheelbase that's...View the full article
  7. BMW has announced a recall of nearly 9,000 vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model years. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a key driveshaft component on those cars may be prone to break. The component in question is the rear driveshaft constant-velocity joint (aka the CV joint), which was manufactured in Germany by...View the full article
  8. In January, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued some preliminary data on traffic fatalities for the first nine months of 2016. Now, the National Safety Council has released estimates of its own, providing more strong hints that the number of roadway deaths in America rose sharply last year. NHTSA vs the NSC Stats from NHTSA...View the full article
  9. Drop in driving and car ownership suggests that America's love affair with cars may be over With lots of wide-open spaces and a sprawling (though crumbling) system of roads, America has been an ideal country for cars. But a new study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute suggests that our long, national love affair with...View the full article
  10. With lots of wide-open spaces and a sprawling (though crumbling) system of roads, America has been an ideal country for cars. But a new study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute suggests that our long, national love affair with automobiles may be coming to an end. It wouldn't be the first time we've heard that. In...View the full article
  11. Earlier this week, Chevrolet announced some impressive fuel economy figures for its newest Cruze Diesel sedan.

That suit was initially filed in June 2016...View the full article
  12. Volkswagen has announced a recall of more than 1,000 Passat vehicles from the 2017 model year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that some of those vehicles may be losing brake fluid, which could reduce their braking power over time. The issue is rooted in brake-line components supplied by Sanoh America Inc., based in...View the full article
  13. Smart dropping gas models, to go all-electric In the future, you won't see one of Mercedes-Benz's diminutive Smart vehicles stopping at a gas station unless its driver has a craving for a bottle of Dr Pepper or a lottery ticket. GM in talks to sell European Opel division to French automaker Detroit-based General Motors has confirmed discussions...View the full article
  14. Jaguar and Shell Oil have teamed up to create a new in-car app that allows drivers to pay for fuel without ever swiping their credit card at a gas station. Instead, drivers can tap their cars' infotainment screens to finish the transaction using either PayPal or ApplePay. The system launches first on 2018 versions of the XE, XF, and F-Pace in the...View the full article
  15. The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq hybrid hatchback will arrive in dealers next month for an aggressively low starting price that may raise some eyebrows in competitors' showrooms. The hybrid version of the Ioniq, which is available in three configurations, will start from $23,035 including a mandatory $835 destination charge. That's several thousand below...View the full article
