Ten years ago the so called “tuner scene” was in full affect. Every manufacturer wanted a piece of this compact performance pie and the possibilities seemed endless for consumers. But, like any automotive trend, time moves on, tastes change and only a handful of hopped up economy cars remain.
That didn’t deter Ford. After years of hot editions of the Focus in Europe, the maker finally brought the fire-breathing Focus ST States-side. Not only that, but pricing has been kept in check as well with the ST starting at $24,495.

So, it should come as no surprise that the 2014 Chevrolet Impala is better than the king-of-the-fleet-yard 2013 model. But even with such high expectations, the 2014 Impala still exceeded them; think 2000 New England Patriots vs. 2001 New England Patriots.
Certainly you have already checked out our 2014 Chevrolet Impala Review – Video first drive, but to ensure we weren’t swayed by the picturesque location, vast vehicular improvement and general awesomeness of the warm San Diego climate, we decided to take a second drive of the 2014 Impala.

Even with a constant bombardment of rain and snow, the new Impala truly is the real deal in the full-size sedan market; here are five reasons why.
General Motors plans to buy “Factory One,” a 133-year-old building in Flint, Mich. that officials says was the maker’s birthplace.
Fuel economy… who needs it? Luggage capacity, rear-seat legroom, creature comforts, they’re more overrated than all the bacon memes on Facebook put together and raised to the power of Justin Bieber. That’s one hell of a confusing math problem, but it’s true. Needless add-ons and frou-frou features waste more time and energy than a month-long filibuster in the U.S. Senate. Anyone up for reading the phonebook?
General Motors announced today that OnStar’s First Assist service is accredited for emergency medical dispatching (EMD).
There’s probably a number on many minds these days: what it’ll cost to buy a 2014 Corvette Stingray.
General Motors president Mark Reuss will drive the Chevrolet SS pace car this weekend to begin the Daytona 500.
Pontiac is defunct but General Motors might soon be facing ghosts of a brand past because an estimate 550,000 G6 cars are under a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation.
GM is adding roughly 400 jobs to its suburban campus in Pontiac, a suburb of Detroit, in an effort to speed development in the next phase of its propulsion development.
