    Detroit 2019: Cadillac's First Fully Electric Vehicle

      Shown, but yet to be named.

    During the reveal of the 2020 Cadillac XT6, Cadillac also took the wraps off a yet to be named Cadillac EV.  This will be the first car on the new BEV3 platform that was announced just a few days ago at the GM Investors meeting. 

    The new BEV3 platform is capable of FWD, RWD, or AWD variants and can be spun into many different body styles as customer tastes change.  Technical details will be released at a later date

    Not as good looking as a Porsche or Mercedes SUV.  This looks to be early concept, they could be a couple years away from dealerships still. 

    Without an technical details we don’t have much to go on but this is a vehicle they need for sure.

    Shown, like an actual vehicle?

    Or a rendering of one? 

    Because the picture above looks like a computer generated and pixelated  photograph. 

    In just curious, because pictures have a nasty habit of changing how the actual physical concept will look like and from there, actual physical concepts have the unfortunate luck in looking waaaay different than their real life selves that will go on sale a year later...

    In that picture, the EV in question does look nice.  For a CUV that is...

    Im excited to read about (and obviously actually see)  how that platform will be flexible and what vehicles it will accommodate.

    I also am very excited to see what tech this will be packing.  Battery size and range. Performance specs as compared to Tesla and Porsche and Mercedes etc...

    What electronic gizmos and internet connectivity and internet upgrades GM will be doing (if any)  to compete with Tesla, etc. (Not that I personally value those things, Im just curious on how the other players such as GM and Porsche etc, other than Tesla will go about their EV business...) 

    Let the EV games begin.

    Looks 15 years newer than any other EV SUV... now just build it LIKE SHOWN.

    Looks truly futuristic IMO. Like Blade Runner futuristic. Very cool. Hope that it just flops out the Cadillac womb like it looks right now.

    Better than some other SUV's that look like they flopped out of another bodily orifice.

    I hope they take this chance to go with NAMES on the new EV products. This would be a good time for Cadillac to embrace their Heritage and bring names to the EVs and leave Johann mess of Cadillac to die off on the ICE world.

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li

    • Spotted on May 28 Well, it's apparent that that this is a Rite Aid store.  I know the car's owner and the owner likes their popular mid-'90s value-packed rendition of the big RWD Thunderbird coupe.  Without the little V8 badge, it runs with FoMoCo's 3.8 L V6 which, unlike Buick's 3.8 V6, has a cast iron block and aluminum heads.  This car also has a sunroof and there's a spoiler in the back.  I've only driven this type of T-bird once, albeit equipped with the reliable and smooth FoMoCo SOHC 4.6 L V8, and I enjoyed spending a long weekend behind the wheel of one.  I liked it more than I thought I would.
    • Spotted on May 26 About to leave Starbucks and I see this coming in to park, so I took out my phone Side view - I spoke with the owner, he said it's a 350 V8 when I asked "350 or 305?", and, so I could take a "better" photo, he ducked ... the color is the firethorn metallic two-tone of that year, those are some of the wheel trim options that were offered,  and they had their heads screwed on correctly for the 1976 MY in offering a deep burgundy for the interior trim, but lost their minds for the 1977 MY when they went over to potent firethorn (red) interior trim.  I'd prefer some thin whitewalls, which look great on Lincolns and larger FoMoCo RWD products.  The interior had the regular bench seat without an armrest, manual windows, simple warning lamps instead of the full instrument cluster, and air conditioning. Angled rear view - if only they could have grafted similar simpler rear lamps onto the very last-gen MC instead of the ones with the squiggly Coke bottle contours. Angled front view - this thing was menacing and you could easily have a gathering for a picnic on its hood ... a very unique window of time for American automotive styling.
    • It very much looks like something that could double as an ambulance rounding a busy traffic circle in Sofia, Bulgaria with the ambulance graphics in Cyrillic characters but making the wailing sounds of an ambulance in Paris.  Just a thought.
    • I'm mixed on this car. The styling is a little too derivative.  I am not crazy about the square retro front.  I do like the rear light bar ... the way they've sort of layered it in there.  The greenhouse is really weird when seen from the side.  Is this meant to be a coupe with ready access to the rear seats?  I want coupes to look like coupes.
