Engine Porn: Cadillac's All-New 3.0-Liter Twin-Turbo V-6 Will Excite Your Inner Enginerd

It's about to get all technical up in here. Hope you're prepared.

Sometimes, it feels like automakers use engines for decades. In fact, they do: Ford's Vulcan V-6 existed in new cars for 20-some-odd years, and Chevrolet's 4.3-liter V-6 has been finding new homes like a hermit crab since 1985 (they finally stopped production about a year ago). It's a good day, then, when we get to see a new engine, one that might be around itself for a third of a century. We've got one such event right now, with the reveal of Cadillac's new twin-turbo V-6.

A Fleet of BYD's Electric e6 Hatchback Is Coming Exclusively to Chicago with UberX

EVs could be the future for taxis with successful pilot programs.

If you've never heard of BYD's (Build Your Dreams) e6 wagon before, you're not alone. The battery electric hatchback never made it to dealerships in North America, but a fleet of 200 of the EVs will be hitting the streets of Chicago shortly with UberX.

The 2016 Chevy Malibu Will Spy on Your Kids, and That's a Good Thing

Because you know you can't trust those horrid freaks behind the wheel.

It's no secret that young people between the ages of 16 and 25 are, for the most part, incredibly bad drivers. They are the most distracted, the most likely to be driving while intoxicated, the most impulsive, and, it goes without saying, the least experienced people on the road.

2010 vs 2015: Has the Nissan Sentra Rolled Through the Last 5 Years With Many Changes?

We're examining one of Nissan's oldest nameplates.

What have the last five years done to our favorite rides? If you're in the market for a new vehicle, it might be prudent to take a look at some previous model years. We all know that saying about cars depreciating as soon as they're driven off the lot, but how much do they depreciate after half-a-decade? Are there options you simply can't live without today, that weren't available five years ago?

NHTSA Wants to Go After Drowsy Drivers Despite a Lack of Data

Gathering that data might be difficult, as well.

Drunk driving isn't the only kind of impaired driving. Anything that affects your coordination, attention, and response time can be considered impairing, including being tired. In fact, driving drowsy can present many of the same effects as driving drunk. It's a wonder why nobody is concerned about it, then. Oh, wait ... the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is very concerned about it, and it wants the public to be, too. The only trouble is an lack of supporting data.

What It Means to Get It Right: The 2015 Ford F-150

The truck of the year is definitely special. But why?

What's so special about the new F-150? Ford's new high-tech pickup has been the most widely lauded American vehicle of the year, if not the decade. It has won numerous awards, including North American Truck/Utility of the Year, Urban Truck of the Year, the Truck of Texas award, Truck Trend's Pickup Truck of the Year award, and KBB's Overall Best Buy award.

Tesla's "Cure for Range Anxiety" Is Far More Low-Tech Than You Might Think

Software updates bring even more peace of mind to Tesla owners.

This week, Tesla founder Elon Musk hinted that the automaker would release some software updates that would "eliminate range anxiety" for those that own its Model S electric sedan. That's a lofty promise, but it looks like Tesla came through on its word, releasing information about two new pieces of software that make the car smarter than ever before. It's a little surprising, though, just how uncomplicated the idea turned out to be.

Nissan Goes Cosmic Bowling on the World's First Glow-in-the-Dark Highway

Birds of a feather glow together. Or something.

When an automaker has a car that's been out for a while, and doesn't plan replacing it soon, it becomes increasingly difficult to find interesting ways to market it. Nissan is going through this right now with its all-electric Leaf. Thankfully, it found a novel way to get people to pay attention again - glow-in-the-dark paint. Now, all of a sudden, we feel like going to a rave.

It's no surprise that buyers often compare both new and used cars. For a given price point, the market for potential cars explodes once you start looking away from new cars alone. Yes, you might give up the warranty, but if you're looking for something unique, used cars provide a good value ... provided you pick the right one. Bang for Your Buck takes a look at five used cars you could get with the money you'd spend on the new car we've tested recently.

We've been through L.A. We've been through Chicago and Detroit. Hell, we even went through Geneva. Now, it's New York's time in the spotlight.

As icing on the cake, Nissan threw a few upgrades at the car, too.

Nissan just announced pricing for the 2016 GT-R. Here's a shock ... it doesn't differ from the 2015 model.
