GM Recalls 118,000 Canyon and Colorado Pickups

Trucks may be missing their secondary hood latch

The number of major automotive recalls over the last several months has grown significantly. General Motors has announced a recall that covers 118,000 of its small pickup trucks in the Colorado and Canyon lines. The pickups covered in the recall are from the 2010 through 2012 model years.

The trucks were manufactured between November 9, 2009 in August 28, 2012. The reason for the recall was that the vehicles fail to comply with requirements for federal statute having to do with the hood latch system. In a nutshell, the hood may be missing its secondary latch.

The missing latch means that if the primary latch on the hood that fails it could blow up leading to an accident. General Motors says it plans notifying owners and instruct them to inspect their vehicles for the secondary hood latch. Any vehicles missing the latch will be repaired free of charge.

Ram Heavy Duty

Aug 28 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

The Ram Heavy Duty has been around since 1981 when Dodge introduced the three-quarter and one-ton trucks. The Ram was available with an innovative, 5.9-liter, Cummins turbo-diesel, something GM and Ford trucks couldn’t boast. The old Cummins turbo-diesel saw Ram Heavy Duty sales grow, thanks to its direct-injection fuel system, turbocharger, and greater power outputs than the competition.Four generations of trucks later, the Ram Heavy Duty is still powering ahead of the competition with ...

Aug 27 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The 2015 Tahoe gets some techy new options this fall. A burbdozer with a V-8 may not be the predominant family vehicle of choice anymore, but Chevrolet still makes a heavy margin on its Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. As such, it behooves GM to keep refining the tech plowed into what’s fundamentally a mid-twentieth-century design. The latest additions to the stalwart duo?

Cadillac to Debut the ATS-V Sedan at the LA Auto Show

Aug 27 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The ATS-V is one of the more-anticipated Caddys since the completely redesigned CTS made itself seen at the 2013 New York Auto Show. It’s not too hard to predict what this M3/M4 fighter will bring to the party, but there is still a slight debate on what will power it. Essentially everyone agrees that the ATS-V will use the 3.6-liter, twin-boosted V-6 that we all fell in love with in the CTS Vsport, but there is some disagreement on how much power ...
