  1. I'm looking into replacing my aging 2002 Silverado Z71 with a new Canyon or Colorado, I'm eyeballing two at my local dealership that come with 15% cashback plus a few discounts. Options-wise they're very similar, one an extended cab Colorado Redline and the other a crew cab short box Canyon, 4x4s and V6s both. I've taken them for a test drive, and really liked how they drove-I found them both really comfortable, and they were (At least from my perspective) really pleasant to drive on the highway and handled great to drive around. But for those that have had one for a while, how are they to live with? I've seen issues with the 8-speed transmissions, but aside from that are there any known problems that are popping up with these trucks?
  2. hey im new to the forum and wanted to know if there are any other towing mirrors available for a 2017 GMC Canyon other than clearview. Thanks!
  3. I bought my 2015 4 x 4 Canyon SLT from a Toyota dealership used so I got very little info. Do I have the z82 suspension package since I have the SLT 4x4 because that's what I've been told. does that mean I can tow the 7k lb? can I update the maps or OS in the GMC intellilink system? Keeps giving me traffic warnings for situations years ago and doesn't indicate roads that have been built since 2014. Does anyone have any tips or things look out for possibly any proactive maintenance tips? Have seemed to notice a intermittent slight rough idling issue when stopped at a red light sometimes.
  4. 2019 Colorado rims for sale

    I have a set of 2019 Chevy Colorado rims that are 18x8.5 and 6x120 and they come with tpms already installed. These will fit any 15-19 Colorado and the tpms just need to be programmed to the vehicle. MSRP on these rims and sensors are $2310.08 before tax and core charge (which is $50 per rim). I'm looking for $1600 obo they do not come with tires or center caps. Message me if you have any questions. I have more pictures of the back of the rims showing they are genuine GM rims but they are to large of a file to upload.
  5. decisions on vinyl wrapping the entire truck. mainly for paint protection but also for major visual enhancements
  6. I have a new 2015 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab Z71 2x4 and i have had it for about a month now after waiting 2 months ordering it. I am hoping someone here can help or possibly provide some insight beyond what I have already been able to figure out. I am getting a pretty strong left to right shake on the freeway that starts almost exactly at 79/80 mph and doesn't go away as i go up. I live in Southern California so 80mph is a pretty standard speed on the freeways here. If no one is in the passenger seat you can see it moving back and forth. I don't feel it at any lower speeds. I have had it to the dealership 3 times so far. 1st time they balanced the tires and it didn't fix it. 2nd time i took the tech on a ride and he said he definitely felt the shake and thinks it is most likely the drive shaft. So i take it the 3rd time and they had it for a week only to find out they only balanced the tires again. They claim to have done the vibration test and couldn't find anything and obviously didn't listen to the tech that was in the car with me. They have since claimed there is no issue and I am basically making it up/ it is a normal shake. Personally, i don't think they even tested it at 80mph because they keep trying to say that since it is over the speed limit they can't test it. I would love to hear them say that to someone who bought the Corvette and had this complaint. I am not an idiot when it comes to cars, i have worked on my own cars for a long time but this is a brand new car that I feel the dealership and Chevrolet/GM should be doing a far better job of insuring it is issue free and SAFE. I do have another scheduled appointment with the dealer set up through Chevy/GM customer service where i will show them the video i recorded with my GoPro that proves at 80 and over its shakes like a massage chair so bad you can't even see the cars/lanes through the window. I love the truck and really want to get this issue fixed but if Chevy keeps denying it and wont stand behind their products I will have to get the lawyers involved and lemon law. If the truck would have came with a disclaimer that you can't drive over the speed limit without it shaking I wouldn't have bought it. I would love to hear if anyone else is having the same issue or any professional mechanics that might have an idea of what it could be. Thanks
  7. Hey guys, so I did a review and install video for Clearview Mirrors USA. They were awesome and sent me out a set of mirrors for my truck. I did a full unboxing, review, and installation of the mirrors. They really are top notch. Be it pricey, but if you are doing any sort of towing with your Colorado or Canyon, these mirrors will definitely make your life easier. The mirrors are super well made, very sturdy. I am very pleased with them. All the info you need is in the video. Leave a comment and a thumbs up. Definitely go visit the www.ClearviewMirrorsUSA.com website and check out the product page.
  8. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-19-2018 GM is recalling a list of vehicles because a fuel line can detach from the fuel pump and thus present the chance for a fire. The full text of the NHTSA report is listed below. If you want to look up your own vehicle to see if yours is on that recall list you can do so here. Or you can hope that the snail mail system works and brings you a notice. If this recall sounds familiar don't be surprised. GM has had a long history of recalling vehicles for fuel pump and fuel line failures.
  9. Here is a video showing how to install a Pop N Lock on a 2015-2017 Colorado or Canyon.
  10. Zane Merva & John Goreham GM-Trucks.com 10/16/2015 The time has finally arrived. You are just weeks away from being able to buy General Motor’s 2.8L Duramax Diesel in the midsize Colorado and Canyon. Two GM-Trucks.com staffers recently had a chance to take a 2016 GMC Canyon with this engine for a spin and here’s what we thought. Zane: The 2.8L Duramax is an engine that will extend the capability of the Colorado and Canyon to within a stone's throw of the full-size Silverado and Sierra. From the moment you turn the key, there’s no mistaking this as a diesel engine. Noticeably louder than GM’s other gas engine offerings, owners will probably enjoy that their pickup sounds remarkably similar to the bigger 6.6L Duramax V8. In our short drive time we were impressed by the massive amounts of low end torque for a vehicle of this size. 369 lb-ft of torque at only 2,000 rpm goes a long way. However, with only 181-horsepower, the Canyon 4x4 crew cab we drove didn’t feel as quick as its 3.6L gas-powered counterpart. Point the nose of the GMC up a steep hill and the Duramax diesel’s benefits are immediately apparent. Nothing is going to stop this truck once it gets moving and you feel like the hand of God has your back. Acceleration is smooth and linear through the entire engine range. That’s the experience diesel truck buyers want and GM has given it to them. Bolder, louder and purposeful in nature. Oh and did we mention fuel economy? Prepare to be impressed. We saw over 30 mpg on our drive loop. GM executive Mark Reuss confirmed to us that the final EPA number should be very close to our results. That would place the Colorado and Canyon has the most fuel efficient trucks you could buy. No wonder GM is exploring options to increase the number of Colorado and Canyon it can build. John: What struck me first was the great look of the Canyon. Particularly from the front ¾ view. I had just left off-road testing in a 2016 Tacoma and in terms of looks, the Canyon wins hands-down. My tester was a $45,280 SLT Crew Cab with 4WD. Trucks are expensive now, but this one had it all. Premium Bose audio and Nav ($500), Spray in bedliner ($475) and Chrome assist steps ($725). I was impressed that the Canyon had Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert at no extra charge. That will cost you $500 on a Tacoma. The biggest single adder was the $3,730 Duramax engine. Although that buys a lot of gasoline, the Duramax has benefits beyond fuel economy to its fans. Hills surrounded the venue we were attending, and they were steep. Like Zane, I was immediately impressed by how strong the Canyon I drove felt. I too noted the fuel economy. Over the past 50 miles that it had been driven in rural NY the vehicle had averaged 22.2 MPG and its peak had been 34.5 MPG (according to the truck). Writers at this event were passing up track time in a Corvette to drive the Canyon on-road. It was one of the most popular vehicles at the event. The new Canyon and Colorado Duramax will not disappoint. GM is proud of this new truck, and as Zane’s interview with Mark Reuss proves, GM is looking hard for places to build more. The Canyon Duramax looks, drives, and acts like a winner.

  14. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-9-2017 U.S. News & World Report added the 2017 GMC Canyon to its list of the 9 Best Cars To Buy Right Now list this week. Makes sense to us. We at GM-Trucks.com feel the Canyon is a great truck, and with so many shoppers over at the Chevy showrooms checking out the just-arrived ZR2 Colorados, the GMC truck dealers may be looking to do a deal. We are fortunate to know the Managing Editor at U.S. News Autos, Jamie Deaton. She is long-time journalist and editor who knows trucks inside and out. We reached out to her and asked her if she could explain what this list really means. Jamie told us, "The Best Cars to Buy Now all have great deals available, but what really sets them apart is that they have good scores in the U.S. News car rankings, which indicates that these are cars you’ll actually want to buy, even at full price, and they have slowing sales – so buyers will be in a strong negotiation position even before you take the manufacturer incentives into account. The three factors are the hat trick of car buying: a great product, the potential to negotiate a lower price, and further discounts and incentives to help you finance the purchase and lower your total cost." That description matches the Canyon very well. Also included on the list of 9 is the Chevy Sonic if you are looking for a small runabout to go with your truck.
  15. I have a new 2016 GMC Canyon and I am pissed! Yesterday on my way back from the first service to get my oil changed, i was left stranded, when the vehicle broke down due to the oil having leaked entirely from the engine. By the time I was able to safely stop the car, the engine was making a distinct metallic noise. I was left waiting in the heat (it was 95 yesterday) for almost two hours while Earnhardt GMC here in AZ tried to figure out what to do. Eventually a tow truck came and my truck was taken back for service. I was eventually told that the oil filter was not installed correctly leading to the engine being left with no oil. Today the Service Manager Joel called to say that here are no issues with the truck and that all is fine. I am not entirely convinced that this is the case and they did not offer to guarantee that the car will not have a problem in the future as a result of this. They told me that I can rest assured that all is well with my truck. I called GMC customer service as I was hoping that someone could advice if I can trust the advice I am receiving from the dealership is correct. I was told that I should go back to the dealership to seek that kind of reassurance and that in the words of Ruben, one of GM Senior Advisor, "this is not an issue for GM". I was really excited about my truck and in the space of less than 24 hours I have come to lose trust in Earnhardt and GM. What should I do? Do you guys think that the engine is shot? Or should I just be ok with it? Thank you for your advice! Joe
  16. Selling a K&N intake I bought for my 2017 Canyon. I purchased it for a 2015-2016. I didn't think GM would have changed the engine that much. Asking $200.00 for it I also threw in a recharge kit inside the box too. Let me know you can get a hold of me through my cell 505-934-3915

  20. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-4-2017 General Motors announced its sales results for the full year and month of December today. The news was all upbeat for GM who touts Chevy as the industry's fastest growing brand. GM also claims a market share gain of 0.5%. We broke out the truck numbers and saw that Silverado was down 4.3% in 2016 vs. 2015 and Sierra was down 1.1% on the year. With the extremely high volume of sales these trucks enjoy that is certainly not to be taken as bad news. The Colorado and Canyon were up significantly, increasing sales by 29% and 25% respectively. By any measure, the midsize pickups from GM are a huge success story for the company and prove - beyond a doubt - that GM had the best foresight among the major pickup manufacturers. We won't be beating the drum that GM's car sales are of concern this year unless things go horribly of course. Instead, we will look on the bright side of GM's car sales. One bright spot is for sure the Chevy Volt. It is the second-leading seller among electrified vehicles in America and nearly doubled its sales to just under 25K units. Along with the Bolt, Spark EV, and ELR, GM sold 28,867 electrified vehicles in 2016, making it the top supplier of affordable EVs in the country. Why does this matter to truck owners? Because every ZEV credit GM doesn't have to buy from Tesla reduces GM's costs and makes room in the CAFE for cars like Camaros.

  22. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-09-2016 In a surprising result, the new 3.6-liter V6 and new transmission for 2017 in the GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado LOWER the combined fuel economy of each by 1 MPG from 20 MPG to 19 in the 4WD versions and from 21 to 20 MPG in the 2WD trucks. The new engines do boost power by about 3 hp to 308, and torque is up by 6 ft-lbs, but at the same 4,000 RPMs. Clearly, GM didn't intend for the new drivetrain to drop by 1 MPG. Our guess, and this is only based on our general knowledge of the subject, is that GM is taking a more conservative approach to its MPG ratings. We have noticed many manufacturers have been doing this as the 2017 numbers come out. A recent example is the Mazda6. The EPA is calculating its fuel economy results differently in 2017 and many models will see such a dip. These results now mean that the Toyota Tacoma has a 1 MPG advantage than the Colorado and Canyon when equipped with its automatic transmission. Researching the Tacoma we noticed that its manual V6 MPG dropped by 1 MPG for 2017. It's not our job to just speculate, so GM-trucks.com has reached out to the Chevrolet spokesperson responsible for the Colorado to see if an answer is available. We will update our readers pending more information.
  23. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 8-29-2016 GMC released its first official images of the 2017 Canyon Denali today. Most of GMC Canyon Denali changes for 17 are very subtle. Can you spot any?
  24. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 8-25-2016 In a comprehensive test of the midsize pickup truck models available now, Cars.com chose the 2016 GMC Canyon as the top truck. That news may be overshadowed by the fact that the Honda Ridgeline finished ahead of the Chevy Colorado in the comparison rankings. On-road, whether empty or loaded to 90% of its maximum capacity, the Ridgeline was the fastest truck in 0-60 MPH testing, and in the quarter mile. The Ridgeline also had the best empty-bed mileage and second best mileage when loaded to 90%. The editors had many good things to say about the Canyon, including, "...the GMC Canyon won this competition by keeping a slow and steady pace in each and every event." They went on to say "Many of our experts commented on how well-balanced and confident the truck felt while on the track, driving around country roads and even at the off-road park." The Colorado Z71 also drew praise form the testers, who said "the Colorado's technological standout feature was the multimedia system with Apple CarPlay." There is a simple reason the Colorado did not win. Check it out in the story here.
