2015 Buick Avenir concept straddles the past and the future

GM really wants the Buick luxury brand to come on strong and at the Detroit Auto Show 2015, it will be doing so by putting its best foot forward with the new 2015 Buick Avenir concept sedan. But while the car does integrate many driver and passenger technologies like other concept cars, its biggest attention grabbing feature will most probably be its design, a design that tries to give a nod to the luxury car's lineage but also tries to break free from tradition.

Chevrolet Bolt EV tipped to take on Tesla Model 3

Chevrolet is set to reveal a second hybrid EV, the Chevrolet Bolt, in concept form at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, insiders claims, as a pre-emptive strike against the upcoming cheaper Tesla.

Chevrolet CrossVolt resparks hybrid crossover chatter

Chevrolet may be busy preparing the new 2016 Volt for its debut in Detroit in just a few weeks time, but the rumor mill is heaving with the renewed possibility of a companion hybrid crossover, the CrossVolt. GM's lawyers have been busy renewing the CrossVolt trademark at the USPTO, sparking again the chatter of a meatier model to use the Voltec powertrain freshly developed for its revamped hybrid.
