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.

2015 Ford F-150: First Drive

2015FordF-150

As a term in the automotive lexicon, "all-new" often is applied subjectively to original and updated vehicles, but used to characterize the redesigned-for-2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck, "all-new" is as accurate as it can be. PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams marveled: "As near as we can tell, there isn't a single aspect to this truck that hasn't been reengineered, reimagined or redesigned." Perhaps most notable among the best-selling F-150's newfangled features is its record-setting abundance of weight-saving aluminum. However, Williams noted, even if that were not the case, the 2015 F-150's technology and other segment-first features would still be revolutionary. Read more about PickupTrucks.com first drive of the F-150 here.
