2015 Silverado & Sierra to get 8-speed tran...

Jul 18 2014 09:04 AM | Zane in News

By Zane Merva
Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com
7/18/2014
General Motors has confirmed that every 2015 full-size truck and suv equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 engine will be offered with a brand new GM developed 8-speed transmission. 
This includes the Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe and GMC Sierra, Yukon, and YukonXL. 
 
The new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed is similar in size to the outgoing 6-speed and will allow lower rear axle ratios for improved fuel economy. 
 
Fuel economy and additional specifications for 8-speed equipped vehicles will be announced later this year.

15 Silverado/Sierra 1500 towing capacity lower...

Jun 19 2014 08:48 AM | Zane in News

General Motors has announced that starting with the 2015 model year it will report towing capacity determined using SAE J2807 recommended testing practices. The more rigorous testing procedure has been held at arms length by the big three for years. Pickup producers have long overstated the capacity of their trucks using internal test procedures. The new J2807 standard brings everyone up to the same playing field. This means every pickup is finally being rated for towing capacity in the exact same manner from the 2015 model year forward. 
 
That's great news for consumers but the much more rigorous test lowers the "official" capacity numbers that many automakers love to throw around in ads.The Silverado and Sierra 1500 will see their towing capacity adjusted slightly down for the 2015 model year due to the new testing requirements. Only one Silverado and Sierra configuration, a 2-wheel-drive double cab with the optional 6.2L engine and the Max-Trailering package, will retain the prior year's rating of 12,000lbs.

As you might have noticed, we've "turned on" the new home-page for GM-Trucks.com. It's integrated with the forum and will allow us to share news and build resources better than ever before. We're very excited. 
 
However, we need to clean things up a little and make it look better. It's going to take us a few days, so bear with us while we remodel the place. :cheers:

GM Recalls Additional 2.42-million vehicles

May 20 2014 03:23 PM | Zane in News

General Motors has recalled an additional 2.42-million vehicles in the US. 
 
  • 1,339,355 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia full-size crossovers from the 2009-2014 model years and Saturn Outlooks from 2009-2010 because front safety lap belt cables can fatigue and separate over time. In a crash, a separated cable could increase the risk of injury to front seat passengers.
  • 1,075,102 of the previous generation 4-speed automatic transmission Chevrolet Malibu and from the 2004-2008 model years and Pontiac G6 from the 2005-2008 model years  because of a shift cable that could wear out over time, resulting in mismatches of the gear position indicated by the shift lever.  
  • 1,402 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs from the 2015 model year because an insufficiently heated plastic weld that attaches the passenger side air bag to the instrument panel assembly could result in a partial deployment of the air bag in the event of a crash.
  • 58 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD full-size pickups from the 2015 model year because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.

I'm so happy...........

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 09:16 AM
I'm so happy I bought my 2014 Silverado before joining this group and reading about all the problems. I have bought several new trucks and had a 2013 that I liked a lot and traded it for the 2014. I love the new truck, it rides great, runs great, looks great and is so quiet. If I had read about all the issues people are having, I would never have bought it. It's a 9/2013 build and so far, so good, but I've only owned it for 2 months.  The FM reception is not as good as my other trucks, but I rarely listen to FM. I wouldn't mind having the lighted circles around my radio dials, but a very minor thing for me. I only use E85 and the fuel economy is still pretty good. By the way, I love this group, very friendly and so far I've found an answer for every question after a search.

Aftermarket heated/cooled seats

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 11:36 PM
Hey guys, so I have a standard heated (Non AC) leather seats in my 14' Sierra SLT but was playing with the idea of getting aftermarket heated/cooled seats. My bro got nearly the same truck as I did and he opted for AC seats. He was complaining to me that the seats don't work to great and cause a lot of wanted noise. I drove his truck around today and found that the while the AC feature is noticeable on high, it was very minimal (Low and Medium could not really be felt). I too wasn't a fan of the noise the fans put out. So while talking to my dealer, he recommended I go the aftermarket route.   In this case, he was referring to the Class Soft Trim. Also read about the Katzkin seats, which too look nice. Have any of you had any experience with either brand? Also, one of my biggest deciding factor of with getting the aftermarket seats is having everything look and function like stock. While I know the seats will look stock, the controls for them are going to be along the seat and not on the dash like my stock heated buttons. Do you guys think it would be possible to run the wiring in a way as to still be able use the stock heated buttons on the dash and just use the AC button on the seat? That way it's all looks and functions...

Possible New Recall 7-1-14 with Gauges I was told?

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 01 Jul 2014
I set up an appointment with my dealer to have the software update for the transfer case taken care of and the guy also mentioned that a new recall for my 2014 Sierra that was announced yesterday included something with the odometer or gauges not reading correctly. He service guy sounded confused as not much details were given but it said to do a software update for that as well both taking 7/10th of an hour each. The guy never did take my VIN number   I did a Vin lookup for my truck and only saw the transfer case issue show up on GM recall site. My question for the guys who work at a dealer, Does this show up in your system?

Possible new Silverado owner I have a simple question

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 21 May 2014
4 years ago I purchased a new Camaro SS ( 2010 ) new platform!!!! It was built in the Oshawa Canada flex plant. I have had 0 issues with this car and for a matter of a fact I visited the plant only to see they take pride in assembling the Chevy Camaro. That was my first brand new vehicle now just a few years later I'm about to add another new vehicle to my garage I'm looking at purchasing a 2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ , 4wd with no Z71 ( just 4wd ) I have looked up reviews on this great looking 2014 chevy truck and I have to say I'm shocked and scared to be honest. Yes most first year platforms have issues but dam!!!! I'm not sure if I need to get a new 15 with all that I'm reading. Is there a certain trim/model like LT's/LTZ's 4x4's or Z71's that are causing the issues? For those of you who have had issues can you please below list an issue you had followed by which plant your truck came from if you know that. Just trying to figure out if this is a normal 1st year hiccup of a new platform or of it looks it may roll over into the 2nd year as well. Thanks David

Xenon's installed in headlights in Chev 2500HD

2015 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 07:23 AM
I went the Xenon's instead of HID's. No drilling, just straight plugnplay   I have used the XD5's 5800k from Ebay before. They are brighter than OEM bulbs and less than 1/2 the cost of Silverstars. Noticeable improvement. Only $ 28 both sets shipped to my door. The H11 are 55W, and the 9005 are 65 W.   Installation is a bi#ch. The covers on the back of the headlight assys are twist and turn- There is a small tab on the bottom. clip this off and they go back in much better. You need to pull the air box on the pass side.   Avalon

air lift 5000 and standard duty compressor confusion!!

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 04 Aug 2014
OK, here is the deal I have 14 GMC sierra 1500 lifted 6" bought a new travel trailer it pulls it just fine but didn't like the rear sag so I bought a Air Lift 5000 system and a standard load compressor.My problem is in the direction and internet info on where to mount the compressor. the direction say no engine compartment mounting due to heat,but states close to battery and keep away from moisture. so I called air lift tech support and he said best place to mount is under spare tire or inside frame rail. both seem wrong if u need to put close to battery {under spare is as far as you can get away} and inside frame rail would it not get wet?also he said to mount the snorkel facing rear of truck but I told him it has air vents on both sides of compressor? So my main question is where should I mount compressor and if on rail isn't that getting it wet if it rains or snows?

I drove the new 8-speed yesterday

2014+ Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 05:01 PM
I had my first chance to try out the new Hydra-Matic 8L90 yesterday at GM's Milford Proving Grounds.  Although it was in a Corvette Stingray, I feel that I can give you all a preview of what the new 8-speed might add to the Silverado, Sierra, and other K2 platform models.      If you want to hear about the 8L90 in the Stingray, head over to autoinsane.com and read my article: 8 new reasons to love the Corvette Stingray.     On the pickup side, the new 8L90 will add a considerable amount of polish and refinement. It's an all new design with second generation control systems.   It also fits in the same space and (at least in the Corvette application) weighs 8lbs less. The housing and input/output shafts will be different in the pickup application but the internals will be the same. Programming, shift algorithms and other fine tuning will vary by model and make.    I drove the 8-speed on GM's Milford Road Course at speeds over 100mph and with no restrictions. Summed up, it's the next best thing to a Porsche dual-clutch PDK. I was very impressed and have high hopes for its performance in the K2 platform.   I can see the quicker and firmer shift abilities of this transmission help...
