GM’s Mid-Size Truck Gamble Pays Off

GM’s Mid-Size Truck Gamble Pays Off
Dealers also happy with 12 days' inventory

General Motors’ new mid-size trucks have had their doubting Thomases, but the results are in and consumers are buying them almost as fast as they can be built.

Critics said they were too close in size to their larger siblings and that they were too closely priced as well. But with the average Canyon/Colorado sitting on lots for a mere 12 days, it’s apparent customers are lining up and GM’s “gamble” is paying off.

“All of our customer research, clinics, focus groups, etc. said there was still a strong market for mid-size trucks, and there is,” said Tom Wilkinson of Chevrolet Communications in an interview with GMI. "Not only are our trucks selling well, but the buzz around them is boosting the whole mid-size truck segment, which has... [Read More]

Press Release: GM to invest $1.2 Billion in Ft. Wayne (IN) truck plant

GM to Invest $1.2 Billion in Full-Size Truck Plant
Fort Wayne construction to continue award-winning pickup manufacturing

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – General Motors is investing $1.2 billion in its full-size pickup truck plant for upgrades and technology that will improve the plant’s competitiveness in assembling high-quality light- and heavy-duty models.

Construction of the new pre-treat, electro-coat paint operation and sealing facility, expanded body shop, expanded and new material sequencing centers, and upgraded general assembly area is expected to begin in June and take several years to complete. Full-size truck production schedules will be unaffected by the construction.

“This investment is more evidence that the customer is at the center of every decision we make,” said Cathy Clegg,

GM Putting $2,000 on Hood of 2015 Camaro Z/28

Just after the 2016 Camaro was introduced at Belle Isle last weekend, General Motors upped incentives on the current generation car.

The best part? The General has placed the highest incentive amount directly on the hood scoop of the 2015 Camaro Z/28.

According to CarsDirect, General Motors has combined two incentive offers: a $1,000 rebate that applies to all Camaros and an additional $1,000 specifically for Z/28. If you are leasing a

The Holden AWD Turbo Diesel Captiva 7 still manages to get decent... traction in the market despite its age.

Op-Ed: What Are Mustang/Challenger Fans Saying About the 2016 Camaro?

Op-Ed: What Are Mustang/Challenger Fans Saying About the 2016 Camaro?

Now that the 2016 Camaro is out of the bag, what’s next? Oh, that’s right, there’s still plenty of things for us to learn - like the date it will hit the streets. We’re also curious about the convertible, and the performance and limited-edition variants (think Transformers, Synergy, and Hot Wheels, among others), but we know Chevrolet has a lot planned for everyone's pleasure.

Despite the all-new exterior, plenty of non-enthusiasts and nay-sayers think the 2016 Camaro looks the same as before . . . despite not having seen it in person, no less. But haters are a-gonna hate, right? Camaro enthusiasts are best served to ignore the detractors and wait for a production Camaro sighting, then let the... [Read More]

Rate the New Camaro Styling on a Scale of 1 Through 10 Poll.

May 19, 2015 - 9:55 AM - by Z284ever
10 being cosmic ecstasy and 1 being utter and complete disappointment.

When the Mustang came out, I was on record for criticizing some aspects of it's styling. The big schnoz for example, was my biggest complaint. But in the Mustang, you can see 50+ years of it's own heritage. Not so in the new Camaro. It was slavishly restricted to conform within the confines of the 5th gen's lines. It's as if GM wants you to think that the Camaro first appeared in 2010 rather than 1967. Great proportions were traded for gimmicky surfacing. Elegance traded for busyness. GM copied the 5th gen - as we had expected - but they actually kicked it down a notch or two, delivering a much more conservative, much less ground breaking design. From certain angles it is downright awkward looking. Very disappointing.

I have to say that Ford delivered a much more effective design with the Mustang. I mean it's a Mustang. You can see elements of... [Read More]

Why no Firebird or Trans Am?


Why no Firebird?

I can understand why no Firebird with the Gen5 Camaro because GM had closed down the Pontiac Division and rid itself of the Pontiac Dealer network. To suddenly announce a new "Pontiac Firebird by Buick" to be sold out of the Buick/GMC Dealer network would have been too... [Read More]
