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.

Pardon the mess - welcome to the new homepage

May 20 2014 04:04 PM | Zane in News

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.

Xenon's installed in headlights in Chev 2500HD

2015 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & Modifications Today, 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

2014+ Mud Guards / Flaps

2014+ Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 01 Oct 2013
I received my mud guards for the front today. Installed them myself with no issues. It was a little disheartening having to drill a couple holes on each side in the fender well for the extra screws/anchors. I didn't have an GM SuperLube as it called for, so I used WD-40 with Silicon and a few dabs of black grease for the anchor install. Took about 45 minutes total. Here is a pic of the finished product. I was concerned they would be too low, but they look pretty good. I did make sure of that before I started drilling, BTW.

Silverado vs. f150 vs. ecodiesel ram

2014+ Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 24 Jul 2014
Saw an interesting video the other day about the 2015 f150 ecoboost vs. Ram ecodiesel vs. 2014 silverado 5.3L towing 7000lbs on a 3 mile 6% grade. It was a ford test so of course the ford won. But not by as much as I thought it would. The Ford beat the Ram by 45 seconds over the 3 miles. However, it only beat the Chevy by 5 seconds in the same distance. If I was on my computer I'd link the video. Honestly I was pretty disappointed in the ecodiesel, not sure what all the hype is if it performs that poorly. An interesting test would be the Hemi vs. the 5.0 ford and the 5.3 or 6.2 Chevy.

2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

Hi everyone!  I'm new to the forum and I'm about to order a new 2014 Sierra.  What's everyone that's lucky enough to own one seeing in the fuel mileage dept?  I'm particularly interested in the city mileage since I have about a 4 mile drive to work and don't do much highway driving.  I have a Trailblazer SS currently and I'm getting about 11 MPG.  Hoping for a decent improvement and to get at least what the EPA rating is for city driving (16 MPG).  However, I know the EPA estimates aren't always the most accurate. Thanks in advance!
