Isuzu

Isuzu's history dates back to 1916 when two Japanese businesses partnered to enter the auto industry, but the brand name wasn't introduced until 1934. Since the beginning, the company focused on building both commercial vehicles and passenger models. The automaker partnered with General Motors in the early '70s and entered the US market officially in 1981, likely being best known for its trucks and SUVs. Isuzu left the US passenger market in 2009 but remains in the commercial business in many regions.

GM, Isuzu shacking up on global midsize pickup development

General Motors and Isuzu might not be financial partners anymore, but it would seem that all those years working together still leaves a strong bond between them to work on new vehicles. Their latest collaboration is co-developing a next-generation midsize pickup to launch at a still-unannounced point in the future. Potential buyers of the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have no reason to fear their purchase becoming obsolete, though, because there are no plans to sell these jointly c
GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside

It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.

Isuzu MU-X SUV is a Chevy Trailblazer in drag [w/videos]

Back before SUVs and crossovers came to dominate the market, the Chevy Blazer was king. In fact the nameplate was so iconic that Chevy spun it off into several different sizes, with the compact S-10 Blazer (also known as, among many other things, the GMC Jimmy) expanding to the K5 Blazer (later rebadged as the Tahoe), and in between, the mid-size Trailblazer. The last of them died off a few years ago, but got a stay of execution in developing markets overseas. And that's essentially what we're l

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems [UPDATE]

Recall Covers Equivalent Populations Of Nine US States And District Of Columbia Combined

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
