    Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. And for the folks at GM, this is good news. Today Ed Whitacre Jr, the GM Chairman will announce he is taking the CEO job on a permanent basis. The move comes less than two months after Whitacre replaced Fritz Henderson as Chief Executive Officer. While some will dismiss this news as a natural development at GM, this is more than simply removing "interim" from Whitacre's CEO title.

    Car Allowance Rebate System

    It is a suggestion that continues to pop up on a regular basis: The U.S. should have another Cash for Clunkers Program. Don't laugh, it's an idea that some in the industry continue to push with regularity. While their intentions and hopes are understandable, it's an idea that won't become reality.

    After the last three years and seeing scores of auto plants close down and thousands of plants shut down, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking the auto industry is dead. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Tata's Nano Drives Into the US Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 | 12:23 PM ET
    Tata Nano

    This car is not yet approved by the DOT for street driving, so my limited test drive was limited to an industrial complex outside Detroit. But even in short drive, the Nano impressed me with plenty of pep and responsive handling. Its tight turning radius will be an asset for zipping around in urban areas with tight spaces. For an entry-level car, it works. You don't get the feeling you are driving a compact car that lacks power and agility.

  • Sergio Marchionne

    Sergio Marchionne has heard the comments. He knows there are plenty of people who have written off Chrysler. He knows there are scores of reporters who take the lack of auto show press conferences as a sign the company is dead in the water. He also knows Chrysler can no longer afford to make big promises it can't keep.

    Jean Jennings is no wallflower. She says what she thinks. It may not always turn out to be true, but that's not stopping the Editor of Automobile Magazine from saying whatever she wants. And most times, it gets your attention.

  • Detroit Finds a Heartbeat Monday, 11 Jan 2010 | 8:55 AM ET
    North American International Auto Show, Detroit, Michigan

    As I walk around the Detroit Auto Show, the gloom and doom of last year has lifted. Replaced with cautious optimism. All is not well in Motown, but there are reasons to be optimistic.

  • Chevy Cruze

    The sheer number of hybrid and electric vehicles on display at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit certainly illustrates the green commitment of automakers, but other--more significant--environmental improvements will be less noticeable.

  • GM's Whitacre Plan: Just Make Money Thursday, 7 Jan 2010 | 11:21 AM ET
    Ed Whitacre

    One month into his tenure as CEO of GM, Ed Whitacre Jr. has a pretty simple game plan for getting GM back on track: just make money. Don't laugh. It's what the man has said time and again, most recently Wednesday afternoon when talking with reporters. While his strategy may sound hokey and simple, I think it's exactly what GM needs right now.

  • Drop The Fears of China Soiling Volvo's Reputation Wednesday, 23 Dec 2009 | 10:35 AM ET

    Maybe it's because the Chinese are new to the auto game. Maybe it's because Americans automatically think, "we invented the car business and nobody can do it better than us." Or maybe it's because some people are worried the Chinese will grow Volvo and become an increasing threat to the Big 3.

    Let's be clear, Chris Liddell is not being hired JUST to be General Motors CFO. Sure, he'll get that title and hold that job for several months, but his future at GM will go way beyond overseeing the company's financial operations.
