  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-22-2018 Chevrolet revealed its 2019 mid-sized Blazer crossover/SUV last night. The new five-passenger vehicle will be bigger than an Equinox, but smaller than a Traverse. What may be the Blazer’s most defining element is its looks. “The Blazer has attitude,” said John Cafaro, executive director, Global Chevrolet Design. “It looks commanding on the road, while fulfilling the promise of versatility at the heart of every Chevy crossover and SUV.” Drivetrains: The new Blazer will launch with two drivetrains Colorado fans will recognize. GM’s 2.5L I-4 will be the standard engine and the 3.6L V-6 engine will be optional, each mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. There was no mention by Chevy of the new four-cylinder gasoline turbo or any diesel options. “The Chevrolet Blazer is more than just good looks,” said Waqar Hashim, Blazer chief engineer. “Both the Ecotec® 2.5L four-cylinder engine and 3.6L V-6 engine are paired to Chevrolet’s nine-speed automatic transmission, providing drivers a great balance between performance and efficiency.” Specs: GM says that the new Blazer will tow up to 4,500 pounds. Cargo area, with the rear seats folded, will be 64.2 cubic feet. By comparison, a Honda CR-V has 76 cubic feet and a Mazda CX-5 60 cubic feet. GM didn’t offer any interior passenger volume numbers, but we question if the Blazer is really “mid-sized.” GM appears to be targeting the segment in which the Murano and Ford Edge reside with this new crossover. The Blazer is a unibody design and shares its platform with the GMC Acadia. Trims: GM plans to give the various trims distinct personalities. GM says there will be “additional bright chrome on the Premier trim and a more sinister-looking, blacked-out appearance for the Blazer RS.” Technology: GM listed the following technology highlights for the new Blazer: -Hitch Guidance — Available on models with the 3.6L engine, it aids in aligning the Blazer’s hitch to a trailer by showing the center line on the rear-vision camera. -Hitch View — This available feature complements Hitch Guidance by showing a top-down view, making it easier to hitch a trailer without a second person to assist. -Electronic-locking glove box — A Chevy first, it offers added storage security, and is roomy enough to fit a small handbag. The glove box is locked with the vehicle’s Valet Mode, which is accessible through the Settings menu. -Automatic heated steering wheel and automatic heated/ventilated front seats — These available features work with Remote Start and/or automatic climate control to automatically adjust temperature to help maintain comfort. -Comfort-open windows — Activated by the key fob, this feature allows all windows to roll down to help heat escape before occupants enter the vehicle. -Heated outboard rear seats are available on RS and standard on Premier. -Adaptive Cruise Control and Rear Camera Mirror are available on RS and Premier2. -Hands-free power liftgate with Bowtie logo projection is standard on RS and Premier. -Wireless charging and six USB ports are available. Manufacturing Location: The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will be built in Mexico. Terry Dittes, UAW vice president and director to the UAW-GM department issued a press statement as the Chevrolet Blazer launch concluded, saying “This news that the iconic Blazer nameplate will be built in Mexico is disappointing to UAW families and communities across this country," Dittes said. "GM employs over 15,000 production workers in Mexico, pays the workers less than $3 per hour and exports over 80 percent of the vehicles to the U.S. to sell here.” Timing: The new Blazer will go on sale in early 2019. Pricing has not been announced.
  2. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-12-2018 Fiat Chrysler Automobile, U.S. (FCA US) has announced that it will move production of its RAM trucks from its Saltillo truck plant in Mexico to the Warren plant in Michigan. This move will mean that the approximately 6,300 jobs in the Warren plant will expand by about 2,500. The Warren plant will receive $1 billion in investment funds to modernize and prepare for the move. The next-generation RAM HD will be made there starting in 2020. Fortunately for the Mexican workers in the Saltillo plant, FCA plans to repurpose the plant building commercial vehicles for the international market. “These announcements reflect our ongoing commitment to our U.S. manufacturing footprint and the dedicated employees who have contributed to FCA's success,” said Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer, FCA. Image Note: Warren production line.
  3. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-9-2018 From January through November, GM increased exports of its vehicles from Mexico by 26%. The largest import market for those vehicles is, of course, the United States. General Motors is the largest exporter of vehicles from Mexico. Nissan makes more vehicles in Mexico, but more stay in the country for domestic consumption. During the second half of 2017, Canadian workers at one key GM plant went on strike over job guarantees that their jobs building the hot new Equinox compact crossover would not go south to Mexico like the GMC Terrain had. Union representatives pointed out that workers in Mexico have a lower cost to GM and wanted the company to promise not to shift work there. GM did not make that promise, and as crazy as this might sound, increased the Canadian workers' pay to kick that can down the road a bit longer. In stark contrast to GM's big Mexican export increases in 2017, Ford's exports from Mexico dropped. One reason for that is Ford had been making mostly cars in Mexico and cars have jumped the shark. GM makes trucks and crossovers in Mexico. Overall, about 14% of all the light trucks and cars in the U.S. in 2017 were built in Mexico.
  4. Buildings going down, People screaming. the footage is just horrible I was just lucky my house resisted the tremor, and that none of family members were harmed, but thats not the case for thousands of people who tonight will sleep on a shelter, with nothing. Another Big earthquake just hit us, here in Mexico. I'm sharing this video to create awareness, and to implore that anyone who can, please support disaster relief efforts and donate, or at least share this video so it reaches anyone who can. We will greatly appreciate it.
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5/26/2016 The publication MLive Michigan is reporting that General Motors will move some production of Silverados from Mexico to Flint, Michigan. The move seems to be for all the right reasons. The report quotes Local 598 Shop Chairman Eric Welter, who says the addition is because truck buyers want a light duty, American-made truck. "This was just a need to satisfy their customers," he said. "We're having a hard time getting the four-door." In related news, the Lansing, Michigan plant where Chevy moved the Camaro's production (from Canada) is doing very well. Managers are being promoted and moved to new responsibilities, and the plant is adding shifts. The Lansing State Journal says that this has created 500 new jobs recently - In the USA.
  6. I am looking for those who has a USA assembled 2014 Crew Cab Sierra or Silverado. I want to know if you have vibration issues at highway speeds with your truck. I am starting this tread because I have a 2014 GMC Sierra Crew Cab that has a vibration problem. I have been following the vibration thread and can't seem to identify any pattern that is causing the vibration. My dealer has been helpful but is not able to fix the vibration. Like most crew cabs, mine was assembled in Mexico. My build date is November 2013. It is well known that GM had a supply issue with real axles in October 2013. I am wondering if anyone out there owns a crew cab that was assembled in the USA? If so, I believe your VIN will start with a '1'. The VIN on my mexico assembled crew cab starts with a '3'. Thanks.
