Vehicle Overview

After a decade on the market, General Motor’s “mid-size” vans received their one and only update for the 1996 model year. The short wheelbase version of the van was dropped this year and styling was modified to better resemble the larger full-size GM vans. Base model Astros/Safaris featured a utilitarian front end complete with sealed beam headlights while higher trim models featured a more modern look with stacked horizontal headlights.

It's an Automotive Vanity Extravaganza


KBB Brand Award Winners

The folks at Kelley Blue Book have released their annual Brand Image Awards. The study, now in its seventh year, honors automakers for excelling in certain areas. Categories include things like best performance brand, most refined brand and most trusted brand. Overall there are 13 winners and the results may surprise or even appall you. You’ll need to read on to find out.

But first, according to KBB this isn’t some shady survey conducted by annoying telephone marketers; awards are actually the result of “extensive research gathered throughout the year.” Shoppers using the company’s website contribute to the results; in fact more than 12,000 of them participated, and here’s what the people have to say.

2015-GMC-Yukon-Denali-03

What should you do if a regular Tahoe isn’t enough, but the Cadillac Escalade is a bit over the top?

The answer is the in-between GMC Yukon Denali. With more power and luxury than regular Yukons, the Denali is for those who want to treat themselves to a nicer truck without going full-hog into the flashy Escalade.

According to GM, the average age of a full-size SUV still on the road today is 11 years. That is as much of a testament to the longevity of these big ‘utes as it is to how much people love them. So it is understandable that GMC didn’t exactly go wild this year when re-thinking the Yukon Denali. This SUV is a complete redesign from the ground-up, but it will be wholly familiar to current customers. Here are five main areas GMC has improved the 2015 Denali compared to last year’s model.

Buick's Resurgence

Buick is one of GM’s four remaining brands in North America. Following the company’s bankruptcy filing in the middle of 2009 divisions including Pontiac, Hummer, Saturn and Saab were jettisoned like Thanksgiving leftovers at Easter time. Ostensibly this cull allowed the firm to concentrate on its best brands, but why did Buick make the cut and has it been pulling its own weight?
