2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, Colorado and Canyon

The new-for-2015 Chevrolet Colorado (left) and GMC Canyon (right) are differentiated more than in the past – and in more than just appearance – as the Canyon is being marketed as a decidedly upscale offering.

Five years ago, the compact-pickup segment consisted of a dozen different members. Since then, the contenders have grown to “midsize,” and the count has dwindled to three.

What happened?

DETROIT — GM is making a big deal of its industry-unique, three-truck lineup (compact, full-size, and heavy-duty) that will be realized this fall with the return of the compact 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. And GMC is making a big deal of the fact that its Canyon isn’t just a Colorado with a different face.

What ws the Iron Duke?

Though technically a Pontiac engine, the Iron Duke found a place under the hood of dozens of non-Pontiac models.

The Chevrolet Vega was meant to be a technical and efficiency tour de force. The good-looking, lightweight little car featured a number of cutting-edge features, and was positioned to prove that the Bow-Tie Brand—and on a broader scale General Motors—was in a position to take on the low-cost and fuel-efficient imports that were starting to show up in dealerships at the beginning of the Seventies.

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring

Consumer Guide Automotive

Yikes, where does the time go? The MX-5 Miata is fast closing in on its 30th birthday, but Mazda apparently couldn’t wait until the pearl-anniversary year of its beloved two-seat roadster to roll out a welcome round of enhancements. Ever since the first Miata debuted at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show as a 1990 model, Mazda has stayed wonderfully true to its original MX-5 concept: a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, lightweight two-seat sports car with modest power, an easily removable roof, and a sporty-yet-compliant suspension.

Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Concept

Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Concept

New York Auto ShowAt the 2018 New York Auto Show, Volkswagen introduced the Atlas Tanoak Concept, a unibody-pickup concept vehicle that, were it to be offered as a production model, would slot nicely into the hot North American midsize truck segment.

The Atlas Tanoak Concept (Tanoak is a variety of oak tree common in coastal California) is designed around VW’s MQB modular architecture, which accommodates a range of vehicles, including the Golf compact car and Atlas midsize crossover.

Pickup Truck Diesels

In the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal known colloquially as Dieselgate, German automakers have almost completely discontinued offering their diesel-engine models in the United States–at least for the time being. Yet, somehow, sales of sales of diesel vehicles in the U.S. are actually up slightly. How is that possible?

2017 Fiat 124 Spider

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Back in the Sixties and Seventies, buyers in the market for a small sporty roadster had quite a few choices. Sure, they were mostly British or Italian, but there were choices. Heck, even a decade or so ago, Americans had several reasonably affordable two-seat drop tops to shop. Remember the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky?
