Cadillac is apparently preparing to roll out a minor facelift for the ATS sedan – which we know not because General Motors has already revealed it or because we're looking at it in a fresh batch of spy shots (though we've seen that too), but because a behind-the-scenes video from the filming of its commercial has leaked out online. Which may be bad news for Cadillac, and even worse news for the film production company, but good news for us, because we get to see it ahead of schedule.

While Ford Motor Company is expecting the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost to be fairly popular both in the United States and overseas, some are brushing off this new turbocharged engine as little more than a short-run redeux of the old SVO Mustang – but there is a good chance that this engine could play a very big role in the future of the model.

The birthday of the Chevrolet Corvette is a topic of debate. Some recognize its birth as January 17, 1953, when the  EX-122 was revealed at GM’s Motorama event at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. Then there are those, like us, who celebrate its birthday on June 30, because that’s when the very first production Corvettes rolled off a Flint, Michigan assembly line, just six months after its unveiling. All of them white. All of them red interiors. All of them with white-walls, canvas top, and radio. Only 300 1953 Corvettes were made, which sold for just $3,498.

Cars like the 2015 Ford Edge will make it harder for some to justify shelling out big bucks on luxury vehicles. A comprehensive makeover to this midsize crossover promises to bring refinement, comfort and technology normally only seen on cars costing thousands more.

Ford chose a good foundation on which to reengineer the Edge: It is now based on the same platform as the current Ford Fusion sedan, which debuted in 2012 and has excellent handling dynamics. (See what we think about the Ford Fusion here.)
