General Motors is recalling 521,817 vehicles worldwide in two separate campaigns. One covers a problem with the seat belts in the Chevy Malibu, and the other is a possible manufacturing error for the seats on the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon.
The Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss is going after customers who want to give their midsize pickups an off-road-ready look. With some blacked out trim on the outside, there's also a locking rear differential at the back and GearOn accessories in the bed.
The Chevy Colorado is getting a box delete option that will allow upfitters prepare the trucks for very specific work duties. Chevy claims this is the only midsize pickup in the segment to offer such a package.
Future Trucks To Show Correct Redline At 6,800 RPM
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are advertised as making 305 horsepower at 6,800 rpm. However, a buyer noticed that the tachometers in the trucks indicated the redline at 6,500 rpm. Turns out the tachs are incorrect, and GM is going to fix the graphic in future trucks.
Voted the Most Valuable Player in the Super Bowl for the third time, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was handed the keys to a brand-new Chevy Colorado... and gave it to the guy who very well might have deserved it more.
The final winner of Motor Trend's prestigious Golden Calipers has been named, with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado taking the title of 2015 Truck of the Year, likely shocking those who thought Ford's all-aluminum, next-generation F-150 would take the crown.
Chevrolet is reintroducing its best-known off-road badge for the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, with the return of the ZR2 on the all-new Colorado pickup. While we're plenty excited about this particular concept, it's what sits under the hood that we're most excited for, because this particular vehicle is motivated by Chevy's eagerly anticipated 2.8-liter Duramax diesel.
With a name like Carmichael, you'd figure Ricky over here would be into cars. The championship motocross rider is actually more into two-wheeled vehicles than four, but that doesn't mean he can't show some enthusiasm for the automobile. Last year he worked with Chevy on a special Sonic concept for the SEMA show in Las Vegas, and now they've rekindled the partnership for the special truck you see here.
Why should you buy a Chevrolet pickup? Well, aside from technology and stuff, you'll want to park a bowtied truck in your driveway because it makes you look more handsome, more resourceful and more likely to own an awesome pet (your author, who drives a Mini Cooper S and owns the world's best mutt, disputes this last finding). Or, that's at least what the maker of the Colorado would have you believe.
UPDATE: Chevy was quick to turn Wilde's nervousness into social media pay dirt this afternoon, embracing the "technology and stuff" line with a hashtag on Twitter, and even a starring role on the Colorado's consumer website. That's what you call lemonade, folks.
