PhantomSierra16 replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomDid GM drop the ball again at a world renown auto show just like they did at sema? Or is the show still not over and we can possibly see more GM reveals?
PhantomSierra16 replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomThe board has to kick out Marry Barra, she hasn't really raised share price since she's been hired, literally the stock price has stagnated . It is appalling with that 1) Eliminating workers jobs, 2) Completely feminizing Cadillac (watch a new Cadillac commercial especially the XT4 one it seems like a makeup cosmetic brand compared to Lincoln), 3) deciding to replay the Electric game again and after failing miserably with the ELR and the Bolt, she thinks allowing the Cadillac brand to move to completely electric will help and not hurt the brand? If anything, make a completely new brand and label it GM. I just do not see this playing well. The only reason the stock price went up lately was mainly because of guidance figures, not the announcement of electric tech. If GM can produce a true competitor (acceleration, tech, etc.) to Tesla at an affordable price, and durability then by all means try it out. Given the past attempts though, I do not see such success unless its show stopping. Quit it with the Concepts GM, the Cadillac 16 was the best it'll ever get.
Well a lot of things on this forum scream aftermarket in a bad way i.e. Strut Spacers, wheel spacers, block lifts, cheap chrome side steps. Depending on what light you have obviously it might look bad but the Putco and Opt7 are the better looking led lights. It doesn’t hurt to enhance safety imo.
Maybe in China or Europe, just not America
PhantomSierra16 replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomIt’s okay man, GMC will make up for that ugly design, at least their trucks will most likely come full LED no matter what trim unlike Chevy where you’ll have to shell out a mortgage payment to get the same full LED treatment.
It honestly goes to show what ever Ford introduces first, the competitors follow suit lately. Ford releases the Raptor, GM does the ZR2 & AT4, Ram does the Rebel. Ford puts a step in its tailgate, GMC puts one 7-8 years later. Ford unveils it’s newest GT, GM soon starts to test out the Mid Engined Corvette. Ford puts adaptive cruise on its trucks, Ram follows, but GM well they’re too focused on making the whole Cadillac lineup to appeal to the millennial feminist. Now im not saying GM hasn’t initiated some first like a step in the bumper (which you can get with 3rd party manufactures), or the cylinder deactivation, or stabilitrak, but nothing big like a performance option has came from them. If they’re trying to cater to the loyalist like their whole campaign was on the new Silverado, (hence the lackluster interior which honestly suits me fine) then they kinda fulfilled the job of “if it’s not broke don’t fix it”. You see how this backfired when you look at the evolutionary design of the Ram. But, after that bail out , can you blame GM for being afraid of being radically first to the show? They’re stuck, it’s a bad battle, and certainly shutting down the US/Canada factories was a poor option, but keeping foreign ones open wasn’t a good choice either.
Hell no, seeing what the hell they did with the Blazer... Let those cars rest in peace and let their legacy be untarnished
PhantomSierra16 replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomLMAO as If GM doesn't have bucket kickers themselves http://gmauthority.com/blog/2018/11/2019-chevrolet-silverado-trail-boss-breaks-down-at-detroit-red-wings-game/
I find it completely IRONIC that the majority of Truck owners in here specifically the ones along the I-10 and the Southwest US claim to buy American no matter what when their own Truck (CrewCabs) is made and assembled in Mexico. Like look at that gorgeous satin sticker say Hecho en Mexico via GM. With exception to the Double Cab and northern GM truck Owners, FT.Wayne and non-Mexican assembly lines thank you a lot. Still though, roughly a considerable amount of non-US parts make it on these models too. Now I can understand Electronics coming from Asia, but the essential parts, that is a shame that GM still chooses foreign. Seriously, if the majority of Truck buyers in America truly cared to buy a majority American made vehicle they should opt for a Ford F-150, or a Toyota Tundra. Not sure where the new Ram's are being made, but the HEMI's are all from Mexico. If you're going to be an American Automotive Company that values its bread and butter, (Especially under TRUMP), you damn well should value the country and the workers that bailed you out not that long ago.
All I gotta say is GM killed their long-standing American Sedan the Chevy Impala. They ****ed up by 1) Not Sprucing it up enough 2) FAILING TO MARKET IT 3)Horribly Designing it and not touching it since it’s current gen release 4) Failing to compete with the Dodge Charger and 300. How is anyone okay with this? Instead of trying to Save the Impala, GM opted to sell the Holden Comedore (the SS), and not lend anything performance wise to the Impala. 🥺🥺🥺
PhantomSierra16 replied to Zane's topic in The GarageReally Hope Bumper Manufactures Tailor the GMC Sierra bumpers specifically to its design and stop assuming the Silverado bumper/brush-guards will look good on the Sierras UNLIKE past offerings from Westin, and ADD
