Hummer is Back

No kidding, Hummer is back–or at least the name is. Read on…

When General Motors dropped the Hummer brand from its lineup at the end of 2010, few could have imagined the nameplate would ever make a comeback. Hummer was so closely associated with excessive consumption and short-sighted corporate management that the moniker would seem forever doomed to the ashcan of automotive history.

2020 Mazda CX-30

2020 Mazda CX-30

Consumer Guide Automotive

This is a vehicle Goldilocks may have influenced.

While the burgeoning popularity of crossovers has caused some hair-splitting additions to model lineups of late, the new Mazda CX-30 fills a surprisingly large gap between the company’s CX-3 subcompact and CX-5 compact. And it fills that gap nearly dead-center, as its 173-inch length falls almost midway between the 168- and 179-inch spans, respectively, of its stablemates.

It also fills a gap in price.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban LT

Chevrolet has just taken the wraps off all-new versions of its “large and larger” full-size SUVs.

Both gain fresh styling, a revamped chassis, new powertrain choices, and a host of newly available technology features.
