There were a great many new product debuts that we expected to see at the 2014 North American International Auto Show but the 2015 Ford F150 was not one of them – with the new half ton truck being billed as “the strongest and most durable F150 ever” by the company while a bold new looks separates this new generation Ford truck from the previous years.
During the 2013 calendar year, 19 vehicles sold at least 200,000 units in the United States and this list of the 19 bestselling vehicles in the US is led by Ford, General Motors and Toyota – each of which has four vehicles on the list of models which moved at least 200k units last year.
When the 2014 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado were introduced earlier this year with a look that is fairly similar to the previous generation, a great many critics pointed out that the newest GM half ton pickups, but after spending some time driving the new Sierra I can safely say that this is not a book that should be judged by its cover as this is THE BEST half ton GM truck ever.
General Motors has announced that the pricing of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups will go up by as much as $1,500 – making the most expensive option in the half ton truck market even pricier.
Just months after the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra half ton pickups began hitting dealerships around the country; General Motors has announced a voluntary recall of some 21,721 new trucks because the front seats could move in the event of a hard rear end collision.
General Motors announced earlier that the new 6.2L V8 powering the top of the line 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra will offer best in class horsepower and best in segment torque so it should come as no surprise that these new half ton trucks can tow more than any of the competition – but what is impressive is that fact that the 6.2L V8 can also deliver 21 miles per gallon.
General Motors has offered up the first images and information on the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL, providing pretty much everything that you could want to know about the next generation full size GM sport utility vehicles – shy of official pricing or fuel economy figures.
