Don't count out tiny trucklets like Chevy Trax

When Mark Reuss was President of GM North America (he has since been promoted), he OK'd the Buick Encore, which used an existing subcompact platform.  When he did, he and GM created a new market segment now called the premium subcompact crossover.  In an interview with Automobile, he recounted how the motor press and others called him crazy.  The Encore went on to become the number one seller at Buick.  Now Chevy Trax is starting to make waves.  Just for some perspective on how many of these are selling, the Trax outsold the Chevrolet Corvette and the GMC Canyon in February.  However, that isn't why it is special to GM and Chevy.

Buick credits the Enclave for the company's comeback.  Eight years ago, the 3-row premium crossover bumped the segment out a bit and was Buick's first new hit.  Last year's record sales for the crossover were worthy of some recognition.  Thus, Buick has created a well-deserved bronze trophy for itself.  The Enclave Tuscan Edition combines the popular Premium and Leather options.  The Tuscan will feature a bronze grill and chrome wheels with bronze accents, and will be available in 3 distinctive colors, including White Frost Tricoat, Dark Chocolate Metallic and Ebony Twilight Metallic.

NHTSA has posted the results of NCAP safety testing on the 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado and the scores could be better.  The scores for rollover are three stars out of five and for frontal crash four out of five.  In side impact testing the vehicles score a good five for five.  Overall the NHTSA score for the trucks is four stars.

GM's friendly howdy to Toyota in Texas

Every other media source will read today's GM press release and think it is about the Chevy Suburban.  Not this reporter who has been covering Toyota for three years.  GM announced that it built its 10 millionth vehicle this week in Arlington, Texas.  It happened to be a Suburban.  GM has been producing full-sized SUVs at the plant since 1997.

Having recently toured a large Chevrolet repair facility in Mass., this writer can personally attest to the fact that GM does design its vehicles so that accident repair costs will be minimized.  The owner of the repair facility showed me how GM's front and rear clips on many vehicles have been simplified, and made less expensive so that repairs are not only less costly, but faster for the repair shop, thereby putting you back on the road in your own vehicle sooner.

2016 Camaro is all-new, not a refresh

Mar 19 2015 11:48 AM | Gorehamj in News

3/19/2015

 
When the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro drops May 16th fans should expect to see a completely new vehicle.  This according to GM and Chevy, who are hyping the upcoming reveal.  GM is using the catchphrase "New from the bowtie to the spoiler" to assure fans this is not just a trim and wheel  type of refresh. 
The new Camaro will be built on the GM Alpha platform (ATS and other models).  Every fan of GM should stand up and applaud that GM even has a front-engine, rear-drive platform given the past ten years events.  The fact that is possibly the world's best such platform is almost too good to be true.  Many brands like Honda, Audi, Lincoln, and Acura don't even have a rear-drive, front-engine platform.

Both Chevy and GMC were rated higher than Toyota by J.D. Power's most recent Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) study.  The study looked at customers' satisfaction with maintenance or repairs performed by dealers on vehicles one to five years old.  Among "mass-market brands", Buick was the number one ranked brand.

Fords solution for speeding

Automotive Industry & Market Discussion Today, 10:28 AM
Ford Introduces Potential Solution For Speeders. The Christian Science Monitor (3/29, LaCasse) reports on Ford of Europe’s “Intelligent Speed Limiter,” which can reportedly “recognize speed limit markers through a mounted camera on the windshield.” Announced last week, Ford’s European subsidiary said it plans to install the system in its S-Max minivans. The article suggests the system could be “a cure for the lead foot” and cites data from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration that estimates that “speeding causes 10,000 traffic fatalities each year [in the US], about one-third of all motor-vehicle related deaths.” The article also references an NHTSA survey that examined whether or not Americans agreed with the statement that “everyone should obey the speed limits because it’s the law.” Ryan Babbitt Manufacturing Engineer Rolls-Royce Defense Indianapolis Operations 2355 South Tibbs Ave. Speed Code R22C Indianapolis, IN 46241 Mobile: 317-908-6417 This e-mail (including attachments) contains contents owned by Rolls-Royce plc and its subsidiaries, affiliated companies or customers and covered by the laws of England and Wales, Brazil, U...

What did you trade-in to get your truck...

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 21 Jan 2015
Just curious what vehicle (if any) everyone else ended up parting ways with to get your truck.  I had a 2008 Cadillac CTS-4 and I don't miss that thing AT ALL!  It was in service all the time, it was nothing but a headache.  Only good side was that I got to drive dang near every new Cadillac model as a loaner.   Glad to get rid of it and to get back into a truck as my daily driver.  NO regrets!

Alright guys I need some suggestions. On my 08 1500 I had a Magnaflow muffler dumped just past the axle. I didn't have any drone that I could hear (My Mickey Thompsons covered up any drone there may have been). Any way I'm just wanting to swap mufflers again and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I'm thinking of just going with a Magnaflow swap and leave the single pipe going out the rear. Anyone changed their exhaust up?

New stereo going in--stepped up a notch

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 10:42 PM
Got my 2015.5 Denali a couple of weeks ago. I had my audio upgrades taken out of my 2014 SLT this time instead of leaving them in.    New plan: same MB Quart 1000 watt 4 channel amp, same AudioControl Line level converter, but new active AudioControl crossover and biamplified Soundstream front coaxial 6x9 speakers in the doors, and a set of JL 3.5 inch coaxials in the factory dash locations.  The door tweeters and the dash speakers will be on the same channel.   Infinity 12 inch sub.   Stock rear speakers will be retained (they are just for fill anyway) and will be powered by the MB Quart amp too. If I blow them, I'll get a better set.    The Bose amp will continue to power the factory console mounted sub.    Everything will be invisible unless you lift up the rear seats.    This will happen next Tuesday and this thing should really sound good.    All I have read says an active crossover is the way to go. I've never done it before.

Assist Steps / Running Boards / Nerf Bars

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 19 Sep 2013
Has anyone out there installed factory or aftermarket nerf bars/running boards on your new 2014 Silvy or Sierra?  Which brand/style do you prefer or like more than any other?   I just recently bought and received a set of 6" oval SS cab length boards made by Raptor.  It was really the only manufacture at the time that said they fit the 2014 model.  When they arrived I noticed a dent on the outside of the drivers side rail.  In the process of returning/exchanging them.  I also did not like the quality.  They are supposed to be stainless steel but tapping on the tube they sound and feel like aluminum.  Very thin-walled that could be easily dented by rocks bouncing off the freeway or those darn "rubber alligators" we have so many of here in Houston!  If they could have a severe dent in them wrapped in plastic, surrounded by styrofoam inside a box, inside another box than they will be DESTROYED on the truck going down the road!   By the way, I order them from 4wheelonline.com for $449.99 with a $50 rebate and did not look through the warranty/return clauses before I bought them.  I would think twice before ordering anything else from them!  If I want to return them for a n...
