    Yes, just days after we posted up two videos making fun of J.D. Power & Associates, we are here to report on another study! This time the news is good for GM.  The J.D. Power & Associates Customer Satisfaction Index Study (CSI) looks at how well customers feel after a visit to the dealership's service area.  The study looks at five aspects of the experience and is simply a compilation of what actual owners and lessees of one to five-year-old vehicles report.  

     

    In the luxury Segment, Cadillac is very close to the top score earned by Lexus and Audi (See above list).  Interestingly, Lincoln edged out Cadillac.

    We're all very jealous of JK's new purchase. Members may recall that a week or so ago we reported that special order ZR2s were running about six weeks from date of order. The above order sheet reveals the specifics on JK's new truck.  JK drove the V6 Colorado a second time before ordering the gas engine. It was the toughest part of the decision. JK said at the Facebook ZR2 Club, "I drove another crew with V6 today and glad I picked it over the diesel as hard as it was to do." We plan a guest spot/interview with JK once his new truck arri...

    GM-Trucks.com loves to report the results of the various J.D. Power awards. Why not? The GM brands, and Chevy in particular, tend to kick butt in the awards, outscoring premium brands every time and seem to always top Ford and Ram. Even better, the GM-Trucks.com membership like to cut up the awards in the commentary. Maybe we are late to the party, but we recently discovered the unedited versions of Chevy's advertisements showing the "real people" that Chevy shows off its trophy case to. Watch the video and you will see what we mean.

  • Equinox Active Aero - Smart Technology, Or One More Thing To Break?

    Chevrolet will add active aerodynamics to the new 2018 Equinox compact crossover. With compact crossovers now the largest overall vehicle segment (yup, passed trucks last year), every automaker needs to make our new family vehicles more fuel efficient. Nick Lico, Global Aerodynamics development lead, says that is a problem for designers, since, "...the box-like shapes of crossovers and SUVs are not conducive to aero efficiency." 

     

    To make the best of this challenging situation, Chevy will install active aerodynamics to the affordable Equinox. The front of the 2018 Equinox will have electronically controlled upper and lower grille shutters. The idea is that in certain situations, when engine cooling needs are reduced, the shutters close, making the airflow around the...

    Just in time for a huge March Nor'Easter, we're getting our first opportunity to drive the heavily updated 2017 Silverado HD on our home turf. For the next few days, we're parking this Silverado in the GM-Trucks.com Garage. Since this 2500HD is also packing the "increased strength" 6.6L Duramax Diesel Engine with 910 lb-ft of torque, we're already lining up things to tow and haul around. 

     

    From now until Friday we're going to share our week with you as temporary owners of the most powerful consumer HD truck on the market today.

    GM-Trucks.com has been in touch with a Texas-area Chevy truck fan, JK,  who has just placed an order for a Colorado ZR2. The dealership JK worked with was helpful and JK's will be the second on order of three the dealer has been allotted.

     

    JK was able to drive gasoline (V6) and Duramax diesel Colorados back to back, and had his choice of either to order. We will leave it for JK's upcoming guest spot here at GM-Trucks.com and let him tell you what he opted to get and why.  

     

    If you have a ZR2 on order please tell us below how you configured it and why.

    Chevy is adding larger commercial trucks to its mix. The new class 6 truck expands Chevy's range of Low Cab Forward trucks.  The new 6500XD picks up where the Class 4 and 5 Chevy trucks leave off. Notably, the Class 6 has a dock-height loading deck.  These new trucks have bodies up to 30 feet long and can accommodate up to 29,950 pounds of cargo.

     

    The standard engine is a 5.2-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel, capable of generating 520 lb-ft of torque.  The engine is coupled to an Allison 2500 Series 6-speed automatic transmission (with PTO) and Dana axles are standard. Chevy;s commercial truck business has seen seven straight months of growth.

    The ink is dry and Mary Barra's handshake with PSA's Carlos Tavares, chairman of the Managing Board of PSA, makes it official; GM is erasing Opel/Vauxhall off its balance sheet. General Motors is continuing to concentrate its efforts on China and North America as its two primary markets and has shed its burdensome car units on the Continent.  Here are the two statements from each of the companies:

     

    PSA: “We are proud to join forces with Opel/Vauxhall and are deeply committed to continuing to develop this great company and accelerating its turnaround,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman of the Managing Board of PSA. “We respect all that Opel/Vauxhall’s talented people have achieved as well as the company’s fine brands and strong heritage. We intend to manage PSA...
