2021 Hummer EV to get 'crab mode' four-wheel steering

The 2021 Hummer EV will be capable of driving diagonally thanks to a 'crab mode' four-wheel steering system, GMC has revealed.

GM recalls 1.5M vehicles for fire risk, Australia not affected

General Motors is recalling around 1.5 million passenger cars, trucks and SUVs around the world to remove a windshield-wiper fluid heating system that can overheat and cause a fire. Many of the affected vehicles were recalled in 2008 to fix a similar problem with the same component, but the latest reports of fires in some previously repaired vehicles has prompted GM to remove the system altogether.
