GM Stops Sales of 2015 Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon Trucks

GMStopSale

GM is stopping all shipments and deliveries of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickups due to a pending investigation about a faulty airbag sensor.

According to Automotive News, a note was sent to dealerships notifying them that an investigation with the National Highway Safety Administration has been opened regarding an airbag flaw that could cause problems with the normal deployment of the driver-side airbag. The fix is reported to be a simple software patch.

The new Colorados and Canyons went on sale just two weeks ago and fewer than 50 sales have been recorded. The stop-delivery announcement is the first glitch in the introduction of the newest members to the midsize pickup segment. GM CEO Mary Barra has stated that these types of small-volume safety recalls are likely to occur more often as GM's new recall and review policies catch issues like these earlier in the production process. So far this year GM has ordered 71 safety recalls affecting nearly 30 million vehicles.

GM Prices 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

2015ChevroletColorado

GM has announced pricing for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, and it's safe to say that direct-competitor the Toyota Tacoma can expect to face some challenging terrain in the midsize pickup landscape. The 4x2 extended-cab Colorado starts at $20,995, including destination charge, and comes equipped with a 200-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Meanwhile, the nearly identically equipped Canyon starts at about $1,000 more.

2015 GMC Canyon Video

PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams got a chance to look over the 2015 GMC Canyon this week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and what a grand Canyon it was. Williams took note of the "organic look" of the front-end styling (surprisingly more similar to the larger Sierra than the Chevrolet Colorado) and a host of aerodynamics-enhancing details, along with a distinguishing line across the front and rear fenders.

One of Williams' favorite things about the new Canyon is that some of its finest features — like the easy-drop-and-lift tailgate — come standard. Check out the video above and decide if you could see yourself in the Canyon.

Next Corvette Z06, GMC Canyon to Debut Next Week in Detroit

Corvette_2014

In an age where automakers are downsizing engines left and right, the outgoing Chevrolet Corvette Z06 treats displacement like Martin Scorsese's "Wolf of Wall Street" treats f-bombs. A centerpiece to GM's sixth-generation (C6) Corvette, the Z06's naturally aspirated pushrod V-8 displaces a monster 7.0 liters — one of the largest displacements this side of a heavy-duty pickup. It makes 505 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque. GM says it hits 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and scorches the quarter-mile in just 11.7 seconds.

What's next? We'll soon find out.

Cars.com Reviews the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The Detroit News reports we'll see a seventh-generation (C7) Corvette Z06 on Jan. 13 at Detroit's North American International Auto Show. There will also be a next-gen GMC Canyon pickup, GMC tweeted Monday, which should closely follow the redesigned Chevrolet Colorado. (GM's four U.S. brands are Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC.)

Used-Car Prices Fall to Lowest Level This Year

Lexus-500
After rising slightly in April, late-model used-car prices dipped again in May. The average price for 2010 to 2012 used cars on Cars.com stood at $22,508 on May 1, a $159 decrease from April 1 and the lowest average price so far this year.

Of the 10 models with the biggest price drops in May, half of them were from luxury brands. Leading the list with the biggest price decline was the Lexus ES 350 sedan. After experiencing a run-up last month, its average asking price fell $2,682 to $30,735, an 8% decline. Lexus alone had three of the top 10 models, with the LS 460 full-size sedan and HS 250h hybrid both experiencing 3% price drops.

The top used-car price gains in May were more closely grouped than in prior months, ranging from 2% to 4%. Most of the top 10 advanced 2%, but two pickup trucks — the full-size Ram 2500 and compact GMC Canyon — saw 4% and 3% increases, respectively.

The chart below details the top 10 used cars from the 2010 to 2012 model years with the biggest price drops — as well as the 10 with the biggest increases. To be eligible for the list, a model had to have 500 cars in Cars.com's national inventory.

Recall Alert: 2010-12 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon

2012-chevy-colorado
GM is recalling 118,800 model-year 2010-12 versions of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to problems with the trucks' hood latch system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Nov. 9, 2009, through Aug. 28, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and could be missing a secondary hood latch. If the main hood latch is not engaged, the hood could open unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners starting Jan. 17, 2013, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace any affected hoods for free. Owners can call Chevrolet 800-630-2438, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

GM Confirms New GMC Canyon, Plus Nine New or Updated Cars by End of 2013

1348152152407
In a conference call minutes ago, GM confirmed a redesigned GMC Canyon will roll off the assembly line at the automaker's Wentzville, Mo., plant at some point down the road. Officials at Buick and GMC also confirmed nine new or refreshed products coming from the brands by the end of 2013.

We've already seen the refreshed GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, as well as the new Buick Encore. But GM confirmed updates, as expected, on GMC's full-size trucks and SUVs: the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs, as well as the Sierra and Sierra HD pickups. Expect significant updates or full redesigns to the Buick Regal and LaCrosse, too.

"The Terrain and Verano will be the oldest non-commercial models for each brand in the showroom at the end of 2013," Buick and GMC marketing chief Tony DiSalle told reporters.
