Polaris just introduced an all new RZR side by side that blew our mind when we read the press release. We didn't think this off-road trail machine could get any more awesome with 78-horsepower in stock form but we were wrong. This new newly announced 2016 RZR Turbo EPS has a saliva inducing 144-horsepower.

In an unprecedented move, NHTSA  and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US (FCA US) have come to an agreement over a recall issue that will result in FCA having to buy back Ram trucks.  The affected trucks have a suspension defect that can cause the vehicle to crash.  As part of the settlement Ram will buy back customer's trucks if they cannot be fixed.  Similarly, certain Jeep vehicles will be covered under a fire recall.  Those owners will be allowed to trade in their Jeeps at above market value or be given a financial incentive to get their vehicle repaired.

Sharp-eyed Camaro writers have picked out an option from the Camaro order guide that people are starting to talk about.  Apparently, the 2016 Camaro will be offered with a blacked-out bow tie logo and also a new illuminated gold bow tie.  As cool as that will look on the grill of the new Camaro, our first thoughts were that the new factory illuminated option would look great on both the Silverado Midnight Edition and Black-out Edition.

In an earlier report, we detailed how the Justice Department might charge GM and some of its executives with a crime over the ignition recall issue.  The latest news is that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is looking to GM's activities.  One part of the issue is not clear is if the dealers are the target of the probe, GMN, or both.  The Detroit News reports that GM responded to the FTC June 3rd.  The FTC has confirmed the investigation but would not elaborate.

The J.D. Power 2015 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study is based on a survey of over 84,000 vehicle owners.  It is a gauge of how gratifying a vehicle is to own and drive.  In this 20th anniversary study, J.D. Power found that the Chevy Colorado is the highest ranked mid-size truck and the Sierra HD is the highest ranked Large, heavy-duty pickup.  In the Large light-duty truck category the Ford F-150 took first, the Ram 1500 second, and the Sierra third place.  Survey respondents had no love for the Silverado.

GM earned $1.2 billion on revenue of $38 billion in the second fiscal quarter.  The company did very well in the U.S. market, made a small profit in China, broke even in Europe, and lost money in South America.  Commenting on the results, Mary Barra, CEO of GM, said, “The first two quarters of the year were strong as we fully capitalized on a robust North American Industry and maintained our strength in China, despite challenging conditions in that market."

Imagine you occasionally rent a vehicle for business and the rental agency has GM vehicles.  Or that at work you use a GM fleet vehicle shared with other workers.  Now image that when you enter this vehicle that you have never been in before the seat and mirror positions, satellite radios stations, door lock settings, and all the other stuff you set in your vehicle immediately mimic your Silverado at home.  GM has patented technology that would allow for exactly that.

ABC news reported this week that the number of deaths attributed to the General Motors ignition switch defect is at 124.  269 people were reported injured in addition to that number.  It has been more than a year since GM CEO Mary Barra said “We are taking responsibility for what has happened by taking steps to treat these victims and their families with compassion, decency and fairness.  We made serious mistakes in the past and as a result we’re making significant changes in our company to ensure they never happen again.”

Charging Ports: USB Port Voltage in the 2015's

Does anyone on this forum have access to a USB voltage meter? I'd like to understand the Ma voltages that are provided with each of the ports in the 2015 Suburbans and Yukons. I believe standard specification for the USB is 500Ma maximum current, but I understand that sometimes they vary. If you find the results please post. Thanks.

Replacement 5.3L engine

Gen III and IV Small Block & Drivetrain Today, 03:35 PM
The 5.3L LM7 in my 2004 Sierra has just suffered a cracked cylinder head, and coolant is getting into the oil. Blackstone Labs oil analysis also shows bearing and crank wear. At this point, my feeling is that the motor is done, so I'm looking into replacing it with a new crate long block. The question I have is are there any differences between the LM7 based on what year truck it went into? Summit Racing has an LM7 long block for $3,000, with $300 core charge. They have it labeled as a "1999" truck engine:http://www.summitrac...57705/overview/ Searching online also pulls up a GM 5.3L crate engine with part number 19301546 – this engine shows up as the 2001-2004 truck version. However, the cost jumps to $3,380 with a $2,500 core charge on most sites:http://www.gmpowertr...om/19301546.asp   A third option is this from Turn Key Engine Supply. Chatting with Kolby at Turn Key, he says this long block is a stock LM7, and that the 350HP/350TQ is acheived on the engine dyno through headers, more aggressive tune and no emissions. GM rates them at 290-300 in the vehicles due to emissions, exhaust and engine driven accessories:http://www.turnkeyen...block-assembly/   My understanding is that the LM7 was pretty much the sam...

Stalling problem

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 03:34 PM
So last winter i was having a problem to where my 02 tahoe with the flex fuel 5.3 would stall but would always start right back up. Replaced the fuel pump, iac valve, cleaned the throttle body 4 time, new fuel filter, pcv valve, sea foamed the engine twice, new coolant thermostat and a ton more of stuff. Well it went away for probably about 6 or 7 months and now its back. I dont know what else to replace. The crazy thing is when its about to stall the temp guage drops all the way to zero and then goes back up but by then the engine has already stalled. I also have low idle like around 450 / 500rpms. The thermostat was the last thing i replaced before the stalling went away. Another thing is i can wiggle the thermostat where it plugs into the engine block before i go anywhere and it wont stall during the period im driving it. How could i check for frayed wires or a lose connection.. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Pandora on MyLink

2014 / 2015 / 2016 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 02:45 PM
So I've had some issues with Pandora on my truck. I connect my phone (Samsung S3) and it'll work fine. However, I have an issue if I shut the truck off but leave it on 'Pandora' without going back to 'radio'. If I do that, then it won't reconnect to Pandora but my phone will connect just fine and Pandora will only work if I make a phone call then it'll play Pandora again, most of the time. Sometimes it won't display my different stations and I'm stuck with the current station. It's REALLY frustrating.   Anybody else having this issue? I haven't heard much of people using Pandora here. You guys think I just need a software update or something? I have thought that it's just my 'outdated' phone lol

2015 Suburban - Remove Cargo Management Cover/System

2015 Suburban/Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade Accessories & Modifications 26 Jul 2015
Hello,   I'd like to remove the entire rear cargo management system/cover/tray in my new 2015 Suburban, so that I can have more room for luggage, bikes, etc., and more cargo space in general. The system/cover/tray just does not provide a whole lot of value for me, in terms of storage, etc.   Has anyone attempted to remove this?  If so, any trips or tricks?  I was able to gently lift part of the tray up, and noticed that there is actually carpet under the system (seemed promising).  I also want to be able to reinstall it when I sell my Suburban in 5 years.   Thanks!
