2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S, 2017 Cadillac CTS-V Duke it Out on H2H

Motortrend News Feed - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 19:00

The latest episode of Head 2 Head pits two of the world’s best super sedans against each other, the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V and the the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S. Hosts Jonny Lieberman and Jethro Bovingdon take both cars out to the track and onto Angeles Crest Highway to find out which is more fun.

At the test track, both hosts discovered that the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S and 2017 Cadillac CTS-V were willing to drift. On the figure-eight course and drag strip, the Mercedes had better grip and acceleration than the Cadillac but lost to the CTS-V in terms of braking.

On the road, however, the Cadillac CTS-V impressed with its handling but its transmission and interior were its weak points because the eight-speed wasn’t as quick as the new nine-speed unit in the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and the quality of the cabin isn’t up to par with the Mercedes. The Mercedes, on the other hand, impressed with its explosive acceleration and handling that eviscerates the road with brute force. However, its brakes aren’t consistent, which means it’s not as confidence-inspiring as the Cadillac.

On the race track, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S was found to be too soft for track use and its weight also hindered it. The Cadillac CTS-V proved balanced and responsive but its slow-responding transmission hurt it on the track.

Check out the video below to find out which super sedan wins the comparison.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Diesel Engine Will Be Made in Flint, Michigan

Motortrend News Feed - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 18:00

General Motors will produce the diesel engine for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado at its Flint Engine Operations plant in Michigan, the automaker said today. The news comes about two years after the automaker announced an investment of $263 million to support a new engine line at the plant.

The Chevrolet Silverado diesel engine will join 1.4-liter engines that are currently built at the plant in Flint. These engines are used in the Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox, and Volt.

The 2019 Silverado features a new Duramax 3.0-liter inline six turbodiesel paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Mileage figures haven’t been announced yet, but GM’s Mark Reuss, head of global product development, said it would be better than the competition. That means we could be looking at 30 mpg or more on the highway. Both the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 offer 3.0-liter turbodiesel engines as well.

In addition to the diesel engine, the Silverado will offer 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines. These engines will come equipped with technology that can shut off as many as seven cylinders when not needed, helping to boost fuel economy.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will enter production at GM’s Fort Wayne, Indiana, assembly plant. Customer deliveries of the truck start this fall.
