A buffeting and vibration problem for some owners of GM's fullsize SUVs can be bad enough to make folks dizzy and give them headaches.
Chevrolet Suburban 1500 News
GM is recalling 3,300 examples of the Chevy Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Sierra due to a newly discovered flaw with their ignition switches. The company caught the issue early, and there have been no reports of injuries or crashes.
The plant that produces GM's full-size SUVs in Arlington, TX, is set to receive $1.4 billion, representing the largest allocation out of the $5.4 billion the company has earmarked towards upgrading its facilities.
Chevy's SEMA truck and SUV fleet includes three Silverados, three Colorados, a Suburban and a Tahoe.
General Motors has issued a stop-sale to dealers and has notified the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration of its intention to recall 117,000 vehicles in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Of those vehicles, only 4,500 are at dealerships.
As part of the State Fair of Texas festivities, Chevrolet has announced a couple of new models that will surely be hits with buyers in the Lone Star State. Both the Tahoe and Suburban SUVs can now be ordered in rugged Z71 guise (pictured above), and Chevy has also outfitted its duo in swanky new Texas Edition trim (as seen on the 'Burb at right).
After what we're guessing was an unintentional leak via a press photo, Chevrolet has confirmed that it will be offering its long-lived Z71 trim on both the 2015 Tahoe and Suburban.
A quick Google search for "danger of heated seats" reveals any number of news stories about burn risks and the potential for damage to the, um, potency, of men. For most of us, though, we know when a heated seat gets too hot. 26-year-old Emma Verrill doesn't have that luxury.
428,211 of these vehicles are located in the United States, 57,706 are in Canada, and 20,956 are in other markets.
UPDATE: This story has been amended from its originally published version to include new information including a Cruze recall press release and a quote from General Motors.
We met the redesigned 2015 versions of the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL at the 2013 LA Auto Show. Improved gas mileage numbers have been announced to go along with the improved exteriors and interiors, with city mileage improving by seven percent and highway mileage going up by nearly ten percent; you'll now get 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 on the highway.
The Chevrolet Suburban and its short-wheelbase cousin, the Tahoe, have both seen significant redesigns, which are being shown off live at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new looks, with the dual-tiered headlights and bold grille aren't a radical departure from the current Suburban/Tahoe's design. Accompanied by an overhauled interior, the new models are a solid improvement over the previous models.
Chevrolet has, so far, let a slow trickle of information about its SEMA trucks reach the public. Yesterday, we showed you the Cheyenne Concept. In September we saw a pair of trucks, the Silverado Black Ops and Silverado Volunteer Firefighter, that will be on display this week at SEMA but debuted at the Texas State Fair. Now, we have the full deluge of details on all of Chevy's modded pickups.
According to General Motors, owners "just love off-roading with [its fullsize body-on-frame sport utility vehicles]," namely the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and GMC Yukon. If that's the case, it's a bit odd that sales of the previous generation of these models with the Z71 off-road package didn't sell particularly well.
General Motors has today unveiled its new family of fullsize SUVs, including the 2015 Chevy Tahoe, its longer Suburban sibling, and their GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Yukon Denali cousins. More efficient powertrains, improved aerodynamics, increased connectivity and better overall refinement are what Chevy and GMC say will separate their new SUVs from the current generation.
With the Frankfurt Messe set to open its doors just days from now, most of the news we have coming in – particularly about imminent vehicle debuts – revolves around the Frankfurt Motor Show. But that's not where Chevy is preparing to unveil its latest.
