  1. Thom Cannell Contributor, GM-Trucks.com February 5th, 2019 2019 - Last North American International Auto Show - as we've known it. Filled with sprawling displays of gleaming sheet metal and enough spotlights to illuminate the International Space Station, this was the final chilly, Detroit Auto Show in January. 2019 lacked the European media-hustle excitement, which left extra space for other exhibitors. Next year the Grand Experiment begins, moving show dates to June and using the Cobo Center rooftop and multiple venues spread throughout downtown Detroit to showcase the best in cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, SAVs, mobility pods and platforms. 2020 will be interesting, to say the least. We've done the General Motors story, this is the rest of the best. Ford kicked off the show, bringing their all-new 2020 Explorer to an early debut at Ford Field. Hmm, plenty of space under the dome! At Cobo Center, there were the new Explorer, new Mustang GT500, infused with a supercharged V-8 making over 700 horsepower with a 0-60 time a tick over three seconds, and the latest Ford F-150 Raptor, all brightly colored for maximum exposure. Interestingly, even on limited-attendance media days the Ford layout felt cramped. The 2020 Explorer will use EcoBoost turbo power, either a 2.3L base engine or more powerful 3.0L depending on your needs and your credit union's scorecard. It's a rear-wheel drive platform, with AWD available. To me there's not a substantial change anywhere except the front-end, which is more like Fusion or Focus, which is not a bad thing. FCA's RAM division challenged its cross-town rivals with an all-new RAM Heavy Duty 2500 and RAM Heavy Duty 3500 which the brand says, "Out-powers, out-tows and out-hauls every other pickup available." Why? It's thanks to an update Cummins 6.7-liter high output turbo-diesel that breaks the 1,000 lb.-ft. torque barrier for standard pickups. If you want all of those torques, you'll have to order a two-wheel drive model equipped with proper equipment. Then your Ram will be rated to tow 35,100 pounds and deliver a 7,680-pound payload. Ram's media briefing was all about axles, transfer cases, suspension, brakes and transmissions, AKA gear-head heaven and real news. GAC, will likely the first Chinese automaker to deliver cars to the USA, and have multiple dealerships (we discount supercars and tiny e-cars.) They brought a non-concept concept called ENTRANZE. It seats 3+2+2 in a pod-like configuration. Of course the vehicle is electric, and a version of this shape/size/configuration will be released by GAC later in 2019 for the Chinese market. GAC will soon open a North American headquarters in California. They also displayed a full lineup of sedans and small-and-larger crossovers; these guys are for real, even if we don’t find most of their current lineup visually appealing. Ford and VW held a teleconference announcing a partnership to collaborate on a products and technologies. Likely, VW wants to take advantage of Ford's truck expertise while Ford could rapidly benefit from Volkswagen's advanced electric platforms and autonomous vehicle research. How this shakes out is yet unknown and details are conspicuously-but not unexpectedly-absent. The handsome Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition, designed to remind us of Lincoln's heritage with center-opening doors and a luxury interior featuring Alcantara, was one of the best-looking vehicles on the floor. And the Continental delivers more than a sophisticated exterior, as under the hood you can option a hybrid version of the twin-turbo EcoBoost 3.0-liter V-6. By combining the EcoBoost with hybrid technology, it produces a respectable 450 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. Get into line with a bank draft, only 80 will be produced. Arguably the most-anticipated introduction was Toyota's new Supra. The 2020 GR Supra is the first global model developed by Toyota GAZOO Racing, the international umbrella for Toyota's global motorsport program. Built on a chassis shared with BMW's Z4, Supra comes in two models, Base and Premium, with a third Launch Edition based on the Premium limited to 1,500 cars. Those get signatures from Akio Toyoda on carbon fiber for display in your office. However, the base model looks like the better bet. It has the same 300-hp. engine, grippy Alcantara seats (versus leather) and a low-low entry price of $50,920. Car-loving journalists agreed, it has better looks and more impact than Margot Robbie or Gal Gadot. Lexus brought it's RC F Track Edition, which has been upgraded and with a refreshed body. Meant for performance enthusiasts, add a set of tires and extra brake pads and you, too, Can't Drive 55, or have a good weekend of racing. Also, the company displayed a "concept" LC Convertible, a very sexy and meant-for-sunshine-weekend-weather touring. It awaits a decision on soft top or folding hardtop; well, that's what we think. For family buyers, Volkswagen introduced a new Passat, which could look a bit more like the Arteon concept, in our opinion. However, Passats are meant for driving, not display, so look for aggressive pricing and "German Engineering" adverts to follow. Also look for significantly upgraded features added to the brands already-good ride and handling. As their Atlas CUV has great lane keeping and VW's excellent telematics system, we expect Passat to be well received by couples and families. Nothing says Auto Show like CONCEPT CARS. Real concepts, even if they somewhat foreshadow the styling of future product. No production-intent cut lines, no perfect rubber gaskets with part numbers. Real. For several years Nissan and Infiniti have provided winners, 2019 was no exception. The Infiniti QX Inspiration is, of course an electrified vehicle that hints at Infiniti's upcoming EV architecture. There is, according to the company, intent to build, though likely with conventional doors to meet safety regulations. Like other EVs, there's a "skateboard" modular base with e-motors on each axle, which generates all-wheel drive. The QX Inspiration took three of EyesOn Design's awards— Best Concept Vehicle, Best Designed Interior and Best Use of Color, Graphics or Materials Nissan brought the IM purely electric sedan with its odd 2+1+2 seating arrangement. Nissan says IM stands for "Intelligent Mobility". With power estimated at 483 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque, the battery pack extends range to 380 miles, eliminating any range anxiety. It’s low, has a fantastic paint job, and a video-only instrument/infotainment panel sweeping across the dashboard. Subaru, home of family cars and the wonderful Subaru WRX and WRX STI boy-racers, brought to the USA, for the first time, the STI S209, a full-on racecar wrapped into an STI body. Subaru Technica International is Subaru's race shop and skunk works. Everything is hand-built or hand-assembled, including the 200 S209's that will be sent to the USA. While 341 horsepower from the boxer engine might sound small, competitors around the world have been looking at the taillights in multiple racing venues. Kia brought its new Telluride three-row crossover to Detroit, putting it on display and on an interior hill-climb track, the first at NAIAS. Appearance is sportier than the soon-to-come Hyundai Palisade, and Kia's theme echoed that with an active lifestyle display complete with ski racks and kayaks. Hyundai showed an enhancement to their N Line of performance vehicles. Available to you and me Really Soon, the Elantra GT N Line combines sportier trim elements with refinements to the chassis and powertrain. Think "BMW M that I can afford." Their first N Line racecar, the Veloster N TCR, will compete in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge race, beginning with the 2019 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.
  2. I'm looking to do a full interior swap/update on my '99 silverado, don't know much about interior fabrication but i'm going to do what I have to in order to make it work. For now I plan on taking everything I can out of a part-out silverado from 2014 or newer and throwing it straight into my truck. If anybody has any tips or prior knowledge from a project of the same nature any help would be appreciated. From what I could find, not many people have documented this sort of thing on YouTube and the ones who have only show off the final product instead of the full process or steps they needed to take in order to get what I'm looking for.
  3. Hey I'm new here and this is my first time ever coming across this problem. I'm working on my 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 because one day coming home from work I couldn't shift back into Park. I replaced the shifter table from the steering column all the way down underneath the truck to the transmission lever. Everything is that it should be I've adjusted the shifter table. I'm able to put the transmission into park manually whenever somebody is in the driver seat pressing down on the brake pedal. I checked the shifter interlock solenoid in the steering column and nothing's hanging everything looks like it's supposed to. And I'm only able to shift out of park into reverse neutral drive D3 and D2. I have no D1 and when I try to sit back in the park the steering column lever goes all the way up into the park position like it's supposed to but the transmission itself won't engage into park and stays in reverse. My next step is to replace the shifter interlock solenoid. I wanted to post this and see if anybody could give me any help in case that wasn't it before I get into that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  4. Hi, We are developing a new software program that focuses on removing DTCs from vehicles. Our support list is very broad and includes trucks as well. I would like to know if you would be interested in such a program? Or you may know people who need it. Let me know. Best regards.
  5. Snapchat-2110446941_1_1.mp4 I got Silverado 2018 Ls single cab with BF Ko2 tires factory size, gonna lift the front 2.5 inches , so , i intend on putting method wheels, but confused with the size of it. What do u recommend? Is the tires size ok with the 2.5inch lift? Tire size 265/70R17 By the way the front lift is Motofab. Hope i can get answers.
  6. Something that should be noted. I have now had experience with three Chevy/GMC trucks. Every time it rains/snows the speakers, sometimes the windows, side mirror controls won't work for 2-5 days, not until the inside of the doors dry out. Even with the weatherpfoofing foam panel that supposedly seals the interior of the door cavity, moisture still penetrates the space, shorts the various components. My friends work truck, door speakers could be counted on to stop playing after every rain or snowfall for 3-5 days. Once dried out-no problem, everything worked fine again. Noticed same thing on girlfriends truck and another friends personal truck. Just wanted everyone to be aware, this is definitely an issue with our Chevy/GMC Trucks. If something suddenly stops working in the door, dry out with a blow dryer or wait several days before you buy speakers or other parts to fix a problem. You may just need to pop you door panel and add some silicone sealant here and there. Did that with girlfriends truck. Fixed speakers going out intermittently.

    1) Coat Dad's Pickup Truck Bed - XO Bedcoating $199 plus your time Why not do dad a favor and lay down a high quality bedliner for him? Our own Chris Hawkins tested the XO system and when he was finished concluded " It looks amazing, has just enough grip that nothing slides, and was done in just one afternoon in my own garage. Going forward, I will use this in any truck I get." Read the full review. 2) Cover Dad's Truck Seats - Canine Covers - About $200- $500 Our own Zane Merva is a dog lover who has taken in foster care animals in need. He needed a good way to cover the seats of a 2011GMC Sierra. Zane's conclusion after sepnding some time with the covers was "Spending $500 on seat protectors is a serious purchase but cheaper than the long term damage of hauling around wet dogs. Canine Covers offers Semi-Custom and Economy covers for those on a budget." Read the full review here. 3) Protect the Floors In Dad's Truck - Husky Liners About $100 to $200 Take a glance at the comments under this review and you will see that GM-Trucks' conclusion was spot on. Our conclusion was - "We've tested these mats for the last month during the middle of winter in New Hampshire and they've done nothing but impress. Gone are the days of asking passengers to knock off their boots! Jumping into our truck has become a no worry situation, no matter how messy our feet have become. We would highly recommend Husky X-act fit liners." Read the review here. 4) Protect Dad's Reviver and Trainer - Bolt Under $100 This one's a no-brainer. In our testing the Bolt locks were easy to calibrate (they use your truck's key as their key) and worked as advertised. See our review for more details. 5) Sylvania Interior Lighting Strip - Sylvania About $50 Josh at GM-Trucks found that these interior lighting strips exceeded expectations. IN his installation Josh overcame some small issues and explains how best to install these at this review. Josh concluded "Choosing between 16 colors and multiple brightness levels make daily use a functional experience, not just for show. We loved that the lowest brightness setting was actually dim enough to allow us to drive with the LEDs turned on at night. The flashing "party" modes are a fun feature but clearly a novelty for when you are showing your friends what your interior lighting can do."

  9. GM says it has an amazing 78% of the full-size SUV market now. Crossover sales are also going well. Equinox is up 42% and Cadillac's underperforming SRX crossover is up 56% this month. Buick's small Encore crossover (one of which joined the extended GM-Trucks.com family this past month) is the leader in its segment and was up a whopping 46% in September.
  10. GM's Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing explained the tie in to buyer's, saying, “For discerning GMC customers, Professional Grade has evolved to mean exacting attention to detail and fine craftsmanship in everything they do and purchase." The three spots are called "Fastball", "Swish", and "Sharp." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYKkH1yeglo
  11. The Chevy Colorado's drop in sales from May (8,881) to June (6,558) was significant. The GMC Canyon was also down about 20% in June (compared to May). Toyota's mid-size pickup truck market share grew in June with the Tacoma selling at 15,959. With both companies now building trucks on three shifts, we can see how the market will end up stabilizing. Toyota will retain a 2 to 1 or greater sales advantage unless something changes. In just a month or two the newly designed and much improved 2016 Toyota Tacoma will go on sale making things a bit more difficult for Chevy's Colorado. However, the Colorado is bringing a new diesel engine to the game, so that should offer Chevy at least a few months of strong sales. Toyota does not plan to offer a diesel.
  12. Commenting on Chevy's win, Vincentric said "Chevrolet wins the Vincentric Best Value Truck Brand in America award for the second consecutive year. Led by the 3/4-ton Silverado 2500 along with strong results from the Colorado, Silverado 1500, and Silverado 3500 the Chevrolet lineup outperformed tough competition." GM's Buick also did well taking the premium large sedan and premium large crossover categories. You can view the full list of winning vehicles at this link.
