    A newly filed lawsuit in Wisconsin says that GM knew it had a problem with cracking dashboards. ABC News has reported that the suit alleges GM tried to find a cause other than its manufacturing and materials to blame the problem on. GM is also not covering the repairs of trucks out of warranty since this is not a safety hazard. However, there are reports that GM dealerships are offering to pay half of the cost of repairs. We do not have that from GM directly.

    The two coolest cars form the Detroit Auto Show may well be the Buick Avista Concept and the 2017 Lexus LC 500. If the Avista becomes a production car, it will go head to head with the new Lexus luxury performance coupe. We'd like to know which would be your choice and why.

To say they are deleting Ruby Red is a little misleading, there is still going to be a deep red except now they call it Siren Red Tintcoat. It's already available on the 2016 Traverse and really isn't that much of a change from the Ruby Red.

 

The same goes for White Diamond Tricoat, now called Iridescent Pearl Tricoat and Victroy Red, now called Red Hot.

the red hot is what comes on the Colorado and its not a red I would want on a truck and if it last I will never buy a red GM truck again

When I first saw the 2014 Silverado Hi Country in Brownstone Metallic color I was hooked and had to have it. That is the only color I've ever seen them advertise the Hi Country in, and everyone who sees mine loves it. When stopped at red lights I've literally had people beside me motion me to roll down my window so they can ask me what the name of the color is. And now they are discontinuing it? Bad move GM.

How about offer the 6.2 in a truck with cloth interior? That would be a good change. ... seemed to work for 10 to 13 models. They can be normal and just have it in extended and crew cabs but just a regular old LT or SLE would be nice with the 6.2 max trailer...

Tailgate lock with open/close indicator. How many times have I almost driven away with my tailgate open....

Rear HVAC vents.

Separate fan controls.

Brighter interior lights. Floor lights.

something to make side rear view mirrors up/down more controllable.

A navigation system that works as well or better than a garmin.

Better weather maps.

A way to shut off sever storm warnings for a few hours.

Quieter warning chimes.

High Def screen with aux inputs.

White Diamond Tri-Coat should stay.

Extra battery option on 1/2 ton.

Much larger wattage power inverter for 120vac receptacles

power outlets by rear view mirror. For factory radar detector and dash cam(s), side and rear facing cameras. Builtin cameras all around with 30day recording.

12vdc and 120vac Power outlets by tailgate.

electric bed heater option.

More comfy seats.

Much more massive turbo'ed motor and bigger gastank.

Built-in YAESU ham and CB radios, and bed rail antenna mounts that still allow for cap installation

factory installed retractable side bed steps - they are a PIA to self install!

Bullet proof glass, exterior and tires.

Rocket launcher.

Prepaid Amex Black Card

 

Looks like you'd be happier with an RV than a truck. Pretty much everything you listed is a complete waste of money for me, yet I would be paying more for the truck as a result.
