When GM announced they'd be making a diesel-powered midsize truck, the automotive world stood on its collective ear. Diesel engines are more efficient than gas mills, and they offer more power too. Americans don't typically buy diesel-engined vehicles, but that's slowly changing. And the 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax offers 369 reasons to make the switch...
Bam! Airbags are meant to save lives, but, sometimes, they can smack you in the face like an angry girlfriend. And if you drive a 2012-2015 Ram pickup, you may not be as safe as you thought...
When you think about suitable toys for the “man who has everything”, your imagination can really run wild. Personally, when I think about the scenario, I can't help but think about Hugh Hefner's world, but this is a family automotive blog so I have to veer away from those visions and think about motor vehicles.
After nearly three decades, and 3 million cars, Mitsubishi has decided to end production at its factory in Normal, Illinois. The central Illinois town is about to lose nearly 1,000 jobs, and $120 million dollars of local economic revenue.

2015 is the second year of the seventh generation of America’s only home-grown sportscar, the Chevrolet Corvette. The opportunity to design a new Corvette is akin to singling the National Anthem—a wonderful opportunity, and a lot to live up to. Before launch, there was speculation the C7 would be mid-engined; it turned out not to be. Similarly, many feel styling too is iterative: bluntly, C7 looks too much like C6. However, standing beside the cars, C7 looks nothing like C6; it is full of unusual angles and fresh ideas. C7 seems sleeker, larger than C6. Go look at a C7 for yourself; the pictures don’t do the shape justice.

Like Pebble, the show is a manageable number of cars, meaning you can walk around the field multiple times, revisiting favorite cars, rather than drowning in volume. Like Pebble, this year one of featured marques was Ferrari.
