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.

But it's the difference that you can't discern from scanning a spec sheet that make the difference, so we put the two side-by-side to render a verdict.

2014 Buick Regal GS Review

2014 Buick Regal GS Review

The performance-oriented Buick Regal GS gains all-wheel drive capability and loses a little bit of power. It’s a great car, but should you buy it?

GM Compact Car Reviews

2014 Chevrolet Spark EV Review

2014 Chevrolet Spark EV Review

Chevy’s new EV is a little shocking, using the lessons the company learned from the Volt and putting them into a smaller package.
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?

GM SUV Reviews

2015 Cadillac Escalade Review

The totally redesigned 2015 Cadillac Escalade features an upgraded powertrain, a sumptuous new interior and more standard equipment than ever. Keeping with tradition, it’s all wrapped in a bold package that’s unmistakable.

2015 GMC Yukon XL Review

GMC’s version General Motors’ full-size SUV is just far enough from being a Suburban to justify its existence, but should you pay the premium GMC asks?

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Review - Video

Despite shrinking demand, Chevrolet has redesigned the Tahoe from the ground up for 2015. Don’t worry though; it’s still a lot like the old model.

GM Luxury Car Reviews

2014 Buick Regal AWD Review

2014 Buick Regal AWD Review

Buick tweaked the Regal for 2014 to help differentiate it more from the Verano and move it slightly upmarket. Is it enough?

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

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

With a wild new look, luxury amenities, huge power and (at long last) seats worthy of its performance credentials, is the C7 Corvette an affordable Porsche slayer?

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

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

With a wild new look, luxury amenities, huge power and (at long last) seats worthy of its performance credentials, is the C7 Corvette an affordable Porsche slayer?

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 Convertible Reviews

2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Review

2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible Review

GM Truck Reviews

2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD Review

2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD Review

Chevrolet's heavy-duty Silverado pickups adopt the same changes for 2015 as the brand's half-tons did for the 2014 model year. It's a big improvement, but is it enough? ​
