    Rumormill: Chevy to undercut Raptor with Colorado performance off-roader? [w/poll]
    1405609200

    You would think that, given the popularity Ford has found for the F-150 SVT Raptor, its crosstown rivals would be all too keen to follow suit. But they haven't. The Ram Runner isn't a production truck, it's an add-on, and General Motors has barely even tried. That might change, but not in the way you might think. Rather than tackle the Raptor on common ...

    Through the first six months of 2014, General Motors has recalled 29 million cars and trucks in 54 different actions.
