GM Car Reviews View All Reviews

The world's largest automaker, General Motors is comprised of four brands: Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC. Popular Chevy models include the Malibu and Cruze sedans, Equinox and Traverse crossovers, the Camaro and Corvette sports cars, SUVs like the Tahoe, plus the Volt and numerous trucks like the Silverado. Top selling Buick models include the Enclave, LaCrosse and Regal, while the bulk of Cadillac sales are comprised of the CTS sedan and SRX crossover. The GMC truck brand is best known for the Sierra pickup and Heavy Duty models, while more recently it has had success with crossovers like the Acadia and Terrain. Globally, GM also includes the Opel, Vauxhall and Holden brands, plus joint-ventures in China and the OnStar brand. After reorganization in 2009, General Motors shed the Hummer, Saab, Saturn and Pontiac brands, having eliminated Oldsmobile several years earlier.

GM was founded in 1908 by William C. Durant using the funds generated by purchasing Buick in 1904 and turning it into a success. GMC was acquired in 1909. Forced from the company after a failed takeover of Ford in 1910, he then helped create Chevrolet with Louis Chevrolet in 1911. That venture became so profitable that five years later he bought a majority stake in GM and a year later was back in charge.

GM Sedan Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Review

2013 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Review

Great in some aspects, class trailing in others, the Malibu is a refresh away from being competitive in the crowded family sedan segment.

GM Compact Car Reviews

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Review

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Review

Rather than “finding new roads,” Chevrolet’s latest compact car follows familiar German footsteps to deliver an intriguing product.

GM Crossover Reviews

2013 Buick Enclave Review

2013 Buick Enclave Review

Big, quiet, comfortable and affordable, the Buck Enclave makes for an attractive luxury-level SUV. If only it had a luxury interior.
2013 Chevy Traverse Review

2013 Chevy Traverse Review

With a slew of new large crossovers hitting the market, is a light refresh too subtle to keep Chevy’s Traverse in the game?
2013 GMC Acadia Review

2013 GMC Acadia Review

A solid list of upgrades for 2013 keep the Acadia relevant compared to new rivals, while an updated look gives it an edge.
2013 Buick Encore Review

2013 Buick Encore Review

Buick steps into a non-existent sub-segment with the Encore, but does this funny five-door deserve a second look?

GM SUV Reviews

2011 Buick Enclave Review

2011 Buick Enclave Review

Apart from a slightly dated interior, the Enclave shows why it continues to be the vehicle that saved Buick, with plenty of luxury, size and style.
2011 Cadillac SRX Turbo Review

2011 Cadillac SRX Turbo Review

A solid competitor to the Lexus RX350 in standard V6 packaging, Cadillac now offers a turbocharged SRX with 300-hp in a bid to win over your luxury crossover sensibilities with fun.
2010 GMC Acadia SLT-2 AWD Review

2010 GMC Acadia SLT-2 AWD Review

A sister-car to the Chevy Traverse, GMC’s Acadia offers good power, a comfortable ride, a well-executed interior and great looks. Fuel economy isn’t the best, but the Acadia does deliver some big truck capability with crossover driving dynamics. Plus, it’s not a minivan.
2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

Attempting to minimize the gas guzzling stigma of the Escalade, the Hybrid version of the mammoth SUV might not win any awards from GreenPeace but it does give remarkable fuel-savings in the city. Too bad the interior isn’t up to premium standards.

GM Luxury Car Reviews

2013 Buick Enclave Review

2013 Buick Enclave Review

Big, quiet, comfortable and affordable, the Buck Enclave makes for an attractive luxury-level SUV. If only it had a luxury interior.

GM Sub-Compact Car Reviews

2012 Chevy Sonic Sedan Review

2012 Chevy Sonic Sedan Review

For a sub-compact the Chevy Sonic sedan is big, comfortable and well-powered, which raises the question, why buy a sub-compact?

GM Hybrid Car Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Volt Review

2013 Chevrolet Volt Review

Billed as an electric car with an unlimited range, we head out on a 1,200 mile road trip to test just how efficient the Volt is on the open road.
2012 Buick Regal eAssist Review

2012 Buick Regal eAssist Review

It may not get wildly impressive fuel economy, nor is it sports sedan fast, but the Regal eAssist delivers a unique package and an impressive combination you won’t find anywhere else.
2012 Chevrolet Volt Review [Video]

2012 Chevrolet Volt Review [Video]

Impressive? Without question. But is the Chevrolet Volt that much better than a hybrid or an electric car; or even a hyper-efficient, and significantly cheaper, gas model?

GM Sports Car Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE Review

2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE Review

With some help from the Camaro ZL1’s parts bin, Chevrolet now has a track-conscious sports car that’ll take on the Mustangs for less.
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Review - Video

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Review - Video

The team behind the Camaro ZL1 deserves a serious pat on the back, because they’ve clearly listened closely to their critics when refining the SS into this surprisingly high-tech and hugely capable sports car.

GM Minivan Reviews

2012 Chevrolet Orlando Review

2012 Chevrolet Orlando Review

Don’t want a full-size minivan, but need more space? Don’t want to spend big bucks on an SUV, or pay for the gas? The solution: the Chevy Orlando. Or at least it would be if you lived in Canada.

GM Coupe Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE Review

2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE Review

With some help from the Camaro ZL1’s parts bin, Chevrolet now has a track-conscious sports car that’ll take on the Mustangs for less.
2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Review - Video

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Review - Video

The team behind the Camaro ZL1 deserves a serious pat on the back, because they’ve clearly listened closely to their critics when refining the SS into this surprisingly high-tech and hugely capable sports car.
2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible 2LT

2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible 2LT

Along with better visibility, but the Camaro Convertible gains some important chassis bracing, meaning it loses little compared to the coupe in terms of driving dynamics and comfort. Now if only Chevy had updated the interior at the same time.

GM Convertible Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Review

2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Review

Driving across the country with over a hundred of our closest friends while raising money for charity is a guaranteed great time. Doing it behind the wheel of an insane pony car, the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible, makes it even better.
2012 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Review

2012 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Review

It may be winning in the sales race, but the Camaro Coupe can’t compete with the Mustang when it comes to true driving performance. Drop the top, however, and the best features of the Camaro are revealed.
