What Does GM Want From Fiat Chrysler?

What Does GM Want From Fiat Chrysler?

Last week, GM sued Fiat Chrysler , arguing that corrupt union bargaining had forced GM to pay its workers more than FCA does, and put it at a competitive disadvantage. The timing of the suit was a surprise, but GM said it was running up against a statute of limitations. Still, there was a sense about the whole ordeal that the timing was, in fact, pretty convenient.

You can read the whole suit...

Please Leave The Corvette Alone

Please Leave The Corvette Alone

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is having the impact we all feared, and now some people with bad ideas are already assuming General Motors will want to do something as stupid as take a legacy performance model and turn it into something fundamentally unrecognizable with the Chevy Corvette.

Lordstown Motors Insists It's A Real Company, Starts Accepting Pre-Orders Of $52,500 Electric Truck

Lordstown Motors Insists It's A Real Company, Starts Accepting Pre-Orders Of $52,500 Electric Truck

The Lordstown plant in Ohio was one of the sacrificial lambs of General Motors’ recent restructuring. The General sold the plant to an unlikely, recently formed automaker, Lordstown Motors Corp, earlier this month. And now Lordstown has both a vehicle and a site where you can pre-order said vehicle.

What kind of vehicle you may ask? Why, an electric truck! Besides the $52,500 price tag, the...

This 2002 Article About The Cadillac Cien Will Break Your Heart Again

This 2002 Article About The Cadillac Cien Will Break Your Heart Again

GM didn’t know how good it had it in 2002. We were years away from the Recession, from the bailout, and Americans were clutching to consumerism like there was nothing else to grab hold of. It is in this environment that a couple of executives reportedly took a trip to England that would break my heart some 17 years later.

I never really loved the Cadillac Cien . In 2002, I was more interested...

Ford And GM's Decision To Abandon Small Cars Is Already Costing Them

Ford and General Motors, as you may have heard , are getting out of the small car business in America. Both say that this is because they need to invest in electrification and autonomy, and also because consumer taste has shifted. A new report says that brand loyalty for a huge chunk of buyers has also taken a hit.

Now, who am I to sit back and howl at the idea that there are consumers out...

One Of The UAW's Biggest Wins Won't Be A Change At All

The United Auto Workers union reacheda tentative agreement yesterday on a new contract with General Motors, one that includes things like a decent ratification bonus, a path for temporary employees to become permanent, raises, and no more cap on how much members earn in profit sharing. Maybe the biggest win, however, isn’t a change at all.
