First Drive: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

Sep 24 2014 01:44 PM | Zane in Reviews

Let’s be blunt. The state of the midsize pickup market has been pretty sad lately. Until a week ago, only the decade old Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier remained available for buyers to choose from.  Have you been inside one of them lately? A general lack of features, refinement, technology, and comfort peg each as behind the times. There’s no wonder this segment of truck has floundered in the US over recent years as customers fled to crossovers.
 
Thankfully General Motors is shaking things up by reintroducing the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Reinvented, these trucks are bigger, more powerful, and have more features. We’re fresh from our first stint behind the wheel and here’s what we think.

2015 Tahoe Wired Headphone "design" issue

2015 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon, & Cadillac Escalade Today, 04:38 PM
2015 Tahoe LTZ.  I have been having issues using wired headphones with the entertainment system. (my 4yo daughter insists on using her princess headphones instead of the wireless).  Sometimes they work, sometimes they dont. After many frustrated trips with the kids, I finally figured out that it had something to do with the screen being up or down when the vehicle was started.  Took it to the dealer and they were able to reproduce the issue.  They worked with their contacts at GM and after a couple of days and program updates, GM told them that the system is working as designed.Dealer/GM is telling me if I want the wired headphones to work, the screen needs to be up and the headphones need to be unplugged when the vehicle is started.  Has anyone had to stop at a rest stop or for gas while on a road trip when the entertainment system is being used?  This does not seem like a logical design or a logical workaround. Has anyone experienced this issue or been told this story from their dealer?

Need help picking subs

Audio, Electronics, OnStar, & SiriusXM Today, 04:26 PM
Hey guys, I built a box to go behind the seat of my 87 k10. The dimensions are 36.5x42.25 8 inches wide on the bottom and 4 on the top. Eventually when I get more wood, I will make it longer. I have 2 kicker comp 10s. They sound decent, but not the greatest. They're kinda loud, but lack body. Will different speakers help? I thought about getting rockford fosgate 10s or jl audio 12s. I only have a little more than 5 inches of mounting depth. Someone even said to put a third 10. What do y'all think? I have them on a class a/b 2000 watt amp.

Need help please AXN axle confusion

Transmission, Suspension, Transfer Case, & Axles Today, 03:38 PM
Looking to make the 14 bolt 6 lug swap using the AXN. My problem is i have the 4wd Z71 suburban and those do not have leaf springs so i need an AXN from a escalade or a rare 6.2L tahoe 4X4. Since the AXN only came on 2wd escalades i believe i cannot use the escalade axle because the 4wd's have a 3 inch wider axle so must i use a tahoe 6.2 4L80e axle, because i think those have a AXN now the problem is will a 2007+ AXN bolt up to a 2002 with disks? Any help is appreciated i really want to do the swap with just bolt ons. I did do lots of research before posting

OEM upgrade to cassette player (cd changer) 2002 SD??

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 12:59 PM
My HU needs to be replaced.  It doesn't work all that well and some of the buttons don't light up anymore.  The truck has that odd config where the HU is a cassette player and it controls the 6-disc changer in the center stack.  I'd like to upgrade it to a touch screen but mine (being a 2002) is that stupid 1.5 din size.  Thus, I'd have to change the bezel to the 2003+ and do some silly modding to make things fit or modify my stock one.  And even if I did an aftermarket HU, it wouldn't be compatible with the 6-disc changer so I'd have to change that to something too.  My easier option seemed to be just replacing the HU with OEM upgrade but I don't think anything exists for that.  It is NOT a Bose but I was wondering if the Escalades had a HU that was better I could swap in.     Only thinking this because I swapped in cluster, shift knob, clock and HVAC units from Escalade.  Might as well go all the way with it...     Or go with a Bose and just wire it up through an amp?  Or is that a huge PITA and not worth it...

09 silverado 1500 5.3 missfire issue

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 12:24 PM
Hi guys. I'm Wayne, new to the forum, first post. I'm working on an 09 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3L.   It's got a definate missfire/shake issue going on.   It's throwing 4 engine codes.  1. p300 random mulitiple missfire 2. p307 number 7 missfire 3. p106 MAP sensor.... 4. p0521 Engine oil pressure sensor range...blah blah blah. However the oil pressure gauge always reads normal   Many times I've seen bad map sensors cause all kinds of wierd stuff. Missfires, shaking...etc. I'm wondering if maybe the miss codes aren't being caused by the map sensor issue.   Question, EXACTLY where is the MAP sensor located on this motor? (5.3L Vortec)   Given it's so new and only has about 100k miles on it I'm doubting it's the coil pack or plug wire causing the number 7 miss but stranger things have happened.  I wanted to throroughly inspect the wiring and plug and MAP sensor but I'm not sure where it is on this thing.  It's also throwing an ABS/traction control code. C0561 ABS system disabled Invalid data...something or another. Given that I'm getting several codes I'm starting to suspect a wiring issue. Especially with the oil pressure sensor code when it's reading good oil pressure at all times. I cleared t...

I'm new here, just ordered a 2014 Denali 1500 Crew Cab. Looking for advice on a good weatherproof tonneau cover, preferably a soft roll up.I have a retractable one on my Silverado LT but it takes up room in the box. Hoping to find one that I can throw my luggage in the back on my trips to Florida and everything will keep dry in the rain. Also want something that can't be easily broken into.   Thanks, Gary   P.S.   Pretty cool site you guys have here reminds me of LS1.COM when I bought my SS Camaro. Did some great group purchases there.

2015 suburban no play button for DVD in front.

2015 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon, & Cadillac Escalade 08 Sep 2014
I have a new 2015 Suburban LTZ.  I have been try to get the DVD player to play the movies for the children in the back of the vehicle using the controls/my link touch screen, however it is not possible.  I just got off the phone with Chevy customer service.  I was told this is the way it was designed and the only way to play the movie is from the back seats with the remote control!   What!  No other car, not even last year’s Suburban is like this.  All entertainment systems can be controlled/ played from the front.  The 2015 mylink manual says on page 39 and 40 to press play or pause depending on the current selection.  However only pause ever displays.  Does anyone have a 2015 DVD system that is working correctly? There has to be a fix for this.

LED Front Light Bars & Pods

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 02 Dec 2013
Adding the final touches... I ordered it from Steve www.sneveysoffroad.com 20inch highlander trail series with the combo beam. The install wasnt as bad as i planned till wiring the relay and switch.. Finished product Removing grill was a BITCH... Be prepared to cuss and drink like a fish. Step one.. Open hood. Pull tabs out that hold the plastic overlay. Than there is 4x 10mm screws. Take those out... Next go in the wheel well take 2x 7or 8mm screws out. (this holds the painted peice above your bumper on) pull edges off till it reaches headlights. Now.. Slide under the head first under the bumper.. Above license plate there is painted to match clips push them with a flat head and wrap end of painted peice... There is 4x more bolts on bottom of grill Now i used a dremel to cut slots for the mounting arm here Drilled holes and mounted.. Perfectly LET THERE BE LIGHT!! THE High beams and fogs.. (did that to) You can compare that to just light bar. Heres all together Now the best part... I'm not drilling into a 40k trucks interior... Chevy made my dah here. I just pushed my toggled switch into here.. Holds Extremely tight.. Ran wires under panel under steering wheel out the hood popper.

Silverado Whistle

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 12 Jun 2014
I’ve read some topics on the 2014 Silverado and a whistle sound that some people are experiencing. I am one of those people with a truck with this annoying sound. I’ve read that it is the result of a relief valve in the muffler / exhaust that is the culprit. The part I don’t understand, is that this would be on everyone’s truck, so why aren’t more people complaining of the issue? Personally, this is driving me crazy, and I need to have it addressed. I plan to have it addressed with the dealership until I can replace the exhaust.   Has anyone had this successfully addressed with the dealership? And why does it seem like some people have it, and some don’t?   Mine is a 14 Silverado Crew 5.3, 3.42's.

Correct Tire Pressure

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 12:49 AM
I have a new 2014 Silverado Crew Cab LTZ Z71 and replaced the 20" chrome wheels and tires with MB TKO wheels and 275/65R18 BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO tires from Discount Tire.  They put 40 PSI in the tires.  Is that correct or optimum?   I have the same tires on my son's 2010 Silverado LT regular cab and they set his at 35 PSI.  35 PSI is also what I had always set the same tires (not sure if the size is exactly the same) on my 2002 Z10 Suburban.
