2014 GMC SierraGeneral Motors will recall 21,721 of its new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups over front seats that could move if the vehicle is hit from behind. Affected vehicles all feature manual adjustments for the two front seats, according to a report from Automotive News.

Of the nearly 22,000 vehicles covered under the action, the overwhelming majority – 18,972 -– were sold in the United States. A further 2,575 were sold in Canada, while 103 were shipped south of the border to Mexico. Finally, another 71 were sold outside North America altogether. As of right now, there are no reports of injuries due to the defect.

Naturally, Chevy and GMC dealers will make the repairs free of charge, although it's not clear as of this writing if GM will be notifying owners or just addressing the issue at the truck's first service.

This recall is notable for being the second to affect the Silverado and Sierra since their debut earlier this year. GM recalled 843 vehicles for an airbag issue over the summer. We'll update this story if an official statement becomes available from GM or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

      They should stop making trucks and leave that to Ford. I think GM should stop making everything except the new stingray. Rename the company as Corvette, have 3 models called Stingray, Z07, and ZR1 and price the base model at $100k. It is apparent that anything else GM builds will be crap.

        Genius! Someone get this guy a meeting with Akerson. I'm sure that would really turn GM around...right into the ground.

      I live across the street from a Chevy dealership and its a disappointment to see how that everyday. GM made the silverado exterior so damn boring.

      I'm surprised that they make manual seats yet. At the price they're asking one would think electric seats would be standard. I've only seen a few on dealer lots and they are loaded up. Still have not seen one in the hands of a new owner yet. Tough market for domestics in the east.

        I've seen several new Silverados and Sierras on the East coast. As far as seats, I don't think any of the full size truck manufacturers have standard power seats. Generally manual on lower spec'd truck.

        It probably depends on where you live. There are plenty driving around already here in Texas..but that's to be expected. We also have some of the cheapest gas. There are also plenty to choose from here in the Houston area. It's typical to send more units in areas that sell a greater amount of a particular vehicle.

      My wife's stepfather just bought a new pearl white GMC Sierra. It is NICE! I hope it's not a lemon as he traded in a Ford to get it.

      Nothing brings out the trolling dregs of the Autoblog like a GM recall story.

        I think Toyota recall stories are far worse.

          99% of them are preventative and not forced by the government Toyota is a proactive responsible quality auto manufacture. Toyota goes above and beyond. Everyone else has to be forced to recall vehicles. So research the facts before you spit bullsh;t ;)
