Chevrolet Impala Grabs Top Spot on Consumer Reports Top Sedans List

New Impala scores big

I'm sure that a lot of people out there would agree that modern Chevrolet Impala sedans have been incredibly boring cars. These cars are more destined for rental fleets than the garages of your average American. However, the significantly redesigned Impala for 2014 recently scored better than all comers to win the top spot among all sedans from Consumer Reports.

The Impala scored 95/99 during the magazine tests placing it in the same realm as Lexus and Jaguar. Consumer Reports says that the new Impala is proof that GM is on the comeback. The older Impala that was replaced scored a scant 63 in the same testing.

The new Impala scored so well that only two vehicles are ahead of it in the Consumer Reports rankings. Those vehicles include the BMW 135i and the Tesla Model S. I still think the car is rather boring even if Consumer Reports likes it.

Some of the required fixes are minor, such as the inspection of the shifter linkage that our long-term Cadillac CTS Vsport recently underwent as part of a June recall for various problems with 3.5 million cars. Others are more serious, includi ...

2015 GMC Sierra Elevation Edition goes dark, looks good

Sep 19 2014 2:54pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, GM, GMC Forget about the so-called sporty Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition. If you want a General Motors pickup with some added style, this one looks like a more cohesive, well-done package to our eyes (though it's also not "sporty," despite GM using that term over and over again). It's called the GMC Sierra Elevation Edition, and it hits dealerships later this year. For its more stylish truck, GMC h ...

Ocean Park Hot Rod show draws California collector

Sep 19 2014 2:04pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The final big car show weekends of the season usually end with a bang, and such was the case last weekend at the Ocean Park Hot Rod show in South Surrey. The lot filled up early and the selection of cars was astounding. Even a guy from California showed up with cars, in addition to some local carnuts who never go to car shows who showed up with their cars. Ocean Park owner Ron Ford let me get up on the roof to get some stellar photos. ...

As auto show season is about to kick off for another year, the organizers behind this year’s Los Angeles show say there are 30 worldwide debuts scheduled.

More than 60 per cent of them will be dedicated to luxury and performance cars. Of the premieres scheduled, Audi has the most lined up with eight debuts. Mercedes- ...

Unleash the Hounds: Cadillac’s Ultra-Luxe Flagship Confirmed for Detroit Production

Sep 19 2014 9:10am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

To be more specific, Cadillac’s forthcoming flagship sedan actually will be assembled in Hamtramck, a city that’s almost completely surrounded by Detroit. The General Motors plant there opened in 1985 assembling Eldorados and Sevilles, so this completes a circle in a way. The facility’s 1600 workers currently screw together Chevrolet Volts, Malibus, and Impalas, as well as the Cadillac ELR. Some tools and equi ...
