GMC has revealed their all-new 2018 Terrain crossover at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Built on GMC’s D2XX platform, the 2018 Terrain resembles the bigger Acadia in many ways, but GMC has done quite a bit of work to keep the brothers differentiated visually.
The 2017 Chevrolet Aveo has been properly facelifted for the first time in a decade. The Aveo name was relegated largely to fleet duties, but it is making a comeback as a Sonic replacement with new infotainment tech.
Cyber-security researchers Chris Valasek and Charlie Miller were in the news earlier this week after a Wired magazine story showed the two programmers access critical vehicle controls on a Jeep Cherokee that allowed them to remotely control critical vehicle functions. The Fiat-Chrysler group had already been alerted to the issue and were quietly offering a software fix to customers in a bid to not alert malicious hackers. However, Chrysler is not the first brand to be vulnerable to hacking, as Chevrolet and BMW were in the news for the same reason this year.
Redesigned alongside the Chevrolet Silverado for 2014, the GMC Sierra is pretty much a clone of the aforementioned Chevy, save for the front end. The version we’re testing here is some sort of well-optioned trim, complete with body-coloured bumpers and shiny alloy wheels, but still stands one level below the chrome-grilled Sierra Denali model.
If the regular GMC Acadia is not nearly enough in terms of equipment, there is the GMC Acadia Denali to up the bling factor. We kept one for a few days to use as family transportation, during Dubai’s worst sandstorm ever, three weeks ago.
On one of our trips to the United States last month, we managed to get behind the wheel of a car that a lot of people in the GCC want to buy, but is not officially offered in our part of the world. Well, not offered any more anyway. We drove the 2015 Chevrolet SS, a rebadged version of the facelifted one-and-only Holden Commodore from Australia, which in a previous life used to be sold in Saudi Arabia, UAE and elsewhere as the Chevrolet Lumina.
The Escalade is a huge seller for Cadillac. Popularised over the past decade as the vehicle of choice for rappers, it started life as just a warmed-over Chevy Tahoe, but has progressed over the years to become a fairly clear-cut model. At first glance, the all-new 2015 Escalade looks a lot like its plebeian cousin, but a closer look reveals that many of its exterior panels, and indeed most of the interior elements, are unique.
Positioned as a “lifestyle vehicle” rather than a work-truck, the Chevrolet Silverado has garnered a following in the UAE among a certain subset of the population, more so than all its rivals in the full-size truck segment. There’s a new version in town, launched late last year, and while it may look underwhelming in terms of visual changes, it’s actually better than ever.
General Motors is recalling all examples of the all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade as well as the 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS to two separate issues.
General Motors has announced a recall for every current-generation Chevrolet Camaro built since it was re-introduced in 2010, adding up to 512,000 cars.
