No, you're not reading it wrong. Bolt, just like Volt. Both share plug-in electric motors but the Bolt goes farther. Much farther. 200 miles. Better yet, the claim is it could only cost $30,000. It's only a concept today but is Chevrolet teasing a future Tesla Model III competitor? 

 

Introduced at this year's 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, the Chevy Bolt EV Concept draws from the brand's experience producing the Volt and the Spark EV.

After lots of teasing and a small trickle of leaks, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is here. Unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show (North American International Auto Show), the second generation "electric car with extended range" is sportier, sleeker, and more powerful than the outgoing Volt. It also goes farther on one charge than ever before; now 50 miles.

The answer is looking like "yes". General Motors is actively preparing "contingency plans" in case the automaker has to issue another round of recalls related to the Takata Airbag scandal. According to Reuters and Yahoo, a spokesman for the company acknowledged yesterday that the GMT-900 based Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade would be among the next vehicles recalled if the issue widened.

Ask the GM Technician Today, 12:03 PM
Truck has approximately 125,000 miles on it (odometer doesn't work).  CEL is on and flashes above 2500 rpm.  Truck also falls on its face above 2500 rpm.  I am the original owner and truck is stock.   Changed plugs and wires.  Checked the coils with a spark tester and they all have good spark.   After a 2 mile drive i checked the exhaust with an IR gun.... 410F and 350F at the inlet of the cats / 390F and 350F at the outlet of the cats.  (i don't think they are clogged).  Good flow out of tailpipe.   Fuel pressure after sitting all night (below zero) was at 0psig  /  key on goes to 50psig  /  start it goes to 62psig  /  shut off goes to 56psig and slowly drops... down to 28psig after a half hour.   I have Lucas fuel injector cleaner in the tank.    idle is smooth.... when i pull a plug wire off to check for spark there is no noticeable difference in the idle.   Any thoughts or suggestions?

Had to order a 2500 HD

2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HD Today, 10:18 AM
A little back ground info. I had a 2007 GMC Ext Cab. Long bed SLT Gasser, And a 2009 1500 Ext. Cab 6 1/2 Ft. Bed LTZ (Both fully paid for) The 07 GMC Had 118000 miles and the 09 Chevy had 91000 miles, Wife conviced me that i didnt need 2 trucks so I traded both for a new 2014 1500 Chevy in JUly of 2014.   After about 2 months (Oct. 2014) I found that i missed my 07 GMC Ext. Cab long bed, So i started looking for a new 3/4 ton Ext. Long bed . Well after looking and looking And not finding any long beds any where I just had to order the truck I wanted. I can't belive that most dealers would stock short beds on a 3/4 ton but not long beds.   What good is a short bed 3/4 ton in the construction industry ? Now the waiting begins, Dealer says it will take 8 to 12 weeks for delivery .....   I would think that a sold truck would be built first, But i don't know....   Can't hardly wait till delivery..   HmBuilder2 Ca.

Shift Indicator Malfunction / No 4 Low

Transmission, Suspension, Transfer Case, & Axles Today, 08:32 AM
I am new to the forum and I'm hoping somebody can help me out with an issue but first some history. My son is serving out of state and through me he purchased a 2000 Silverado with 89k miles for delivery to him at a later date. I did an extensive test drive before the purchase which included testing all the 4x4 functions which operated as designed. Before I delivered him the truck I had a few things done, one of which was having tranny flushed and fluid changed in the t-case by a very knowledgable tranny shop that I've used for over 20 years. While they had it they replaced the problematic rear main seal and housing on the engine. They are good friends and I trust them immensely.   Fast forward a week and I find myself delivering the truck to my son and while I'm explaining the 4x4 functions we discover 4 low isn't working. 4 high seems to work - indicator light illuminates and the front axles seem to be engaged. Auto 4 light illuminates but we didn't have a good surface to test it on. 4 low flashes until it times out and returns to 2 high. We tried the 1-3 mph roll in neutral, stopped, backing up.... nothing worked. Then we noticed that when the truck was placed into neutral the shift indicator would indicate neutral...

Debadged/Dechrome/Colormatched Picture Request

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 07:37 AM
New owner of a 2015 Sierra All-Terrain looking to clean up the exterior appearance a little. I don't understand GM's fascination with all the chrome they stuck on these new trucks, maybe on a Denali or HC but the signature color matched bumpers on the AT's are thrown off by the gobs of chrome all over the side. Looking for inspiration on whether to completely debadge, dechrome or colormatch... preferably pics of a black truck. Window trim has to go for sure along with the mirror caps but I'm still torn on the side molding and handles as it kind of ties everything together with the factory silver wheels. Still not 100% on the running boards but I think I'm gonna pull them off. Here's my truck in question:

2014+ Engine & Transmission Tuning

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust 23 Jul 2013
Hi Guys, Diablo emailed me this morning to announce that they've got their tuner units ready for the 2014's, here are some of the options it does, I've had a Diablo for my 2010 Denali since I purchased it, but back then there were a lot fewer things supported than they appear to be doing now (primarily purchased it to change the tire sizes and disable the limiter)   inTune really improves the 2014 GM Truck; tunes included are 87 octane tune, MPG Booster Tune, and the Diablo tune, which should be used with octane higher than 91. Increases of up to 15 hp and 20 ft lbs of torque can  be seen across the entire RPM range with the Diablo Tune.   Our tunes are calibrated specifically to improve performance, drivability, and economy and reduce the factory's power-robbing "torque management" to put more power to the ground when you need it. Other options include TCM (Transmission Control Module) control to adjust automatic shift characteristics, DOD (Active Fuel Management) disable, speedometer adjustment for gear and tire changes, and raising speed and rev limiters.
