GOING PLATINUM
2017 Cadillac XT5 Platinum AWD

AUTO REVIEW – People buy Cadillacs in full expectation of owning a well-crafted American made luxury vehicle. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 does not disappoint and fulfills the firm’s mid-sized crossover SUV niche quite nicely. XT5 represents Cadillac’s Crossover Touring series of vehicles, replacing previous versions under the SRX banner. This particular market segment is historically the company’s largest seller. Whichever alphabet-soup naming scheme is employed, Cadillac has done a fine job in producing the XT5.

I SING
The Body BMW i3 Electric

AUTO REVIEW—Beautifully odd-looking, quirky, upscale, light on its feet, and electric. Few cars can fit that description, but it fits the BMW i3—a popular choice among moderately well-heeled, tree-hugging consumers. Then came the Bolt with its 238-mile range to knock the wind out of the i3. But wait, now may be the best time ever to shop for an i3. You can now get one for a song. And you can thank Chevy for that. Harvey Schwartz tests the BMW i3.

This is Why We Can Have Nice Things
2017 Buick LaCrosse Premium FWD

AUTO REVIEW - Buick’s third generation LaCrosse is a prime example of why auto buyers should pay closer attention to the brand. Our 2017 Buick LaCrosse Premium Edition is an adult’s car. Roomy and comfortable with ample space for four, LaCrosse’s interior feels larger than it appears. Outward styling is very modern. Body contour sculpting runs from the front to fading in at about the rear quarter panel. Another line goes from the tail light area forward to the rear door. The result is subtle and very visually effective.

Lexus GS 450h
Mid-Sized Sports Sedan, Oversized Luxury

AUTO REVIEW – Yours truly is headed up to Sacramento to serve as keynote speaker for a national driver safety conference. Obviously, the easy thing to do would be to hop a flight out of L.A. or Burbank and arrive in about an hour. However, my sense of adventure has gotten the better of me. I’m currently road testing a shiny new hybrid so, instead of taking to the sky, I’m hitting the road in a handsome 2017 Lexus GS450h.

CAN’T GET MORE MANLY THAN THIS
GMC Sierra 2500 HD 4WD Crew Cab SLT with the All-Terrain X package

AUTO REVIEW—I walked out and there it was. OMG, it was like the sun was shining only on the truck, you know like you see in the movies where the ray of bright sunshine is streaming down on earth from heaven. Yeah, it was like that. My favorite color is black until a darker color comes along, and guess what? The GMC was black, with black wheels, black interior, black bumper, and even black tires ☺. I was wearing a black t-shirt and black jeans with black socks and I have black hair. I was one with the truck! Tom Gomez reviews the GMC Sierra 2500 HD 4WD Crew Cab with the All-Terrain X package.
