2011 GMC Canyon
2011 GMC Canyon
The midsized truck called Canyon is one of the staple vehicles from GMC and since last year's model it has not undergone much change. However, if it isn't broke, don't fix it, right. One notable change is the additional horsepower that the 5.3 liter V-8 delivers. This was a much needed addition, the 2010 model could have used some extra power and now that GMC has upgraded the motor in the Canyon, this is one of the most powerful midsized trucks in its class.

The Canyon offers a few varieties of motors, from the standard I-5 engine all the way up to the powerful V-8. The Canyon can use a 4 speed automatic transmission or a 5 speed manual for those who like complete control over the vehicles shift points. The V-8 is rated to tow up to 6,000 pounds which is a pretty healthy payload by any standards. For those road warriors there are both ZQ8 and Z71 suspension packages to offer a more refined ride.

The new headrests, chrome package and connectivity packages are among many of the new features available on the new Canyon in 2011.
Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept Front Three Quarter
Call it a Colorado comeback: as part of its newly renewed contract with the United Auto Workers, General Motors has agreed to produce a new midsize pickup truck at its plant in Wentzville, Missouri. Although GM has yet to confirm anything, this may be our best sign yet that the all-new Chevrolet Colorado is destined for North America after all.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued recall notices for several General Motors products.

2011 Chevrolet Colorado Front
It seems the devastating earthquake in Japan last week will continue to rock the global automotive industry. While several final assembly plants in Japan were idled in the wake of the disaster, it appears that idled supplier facilities will disrupt manufacturing throughout the globe. The latest plant outside Japan to experience trouble is General Motor's Shreveport, Louisiana location, which is forced to halt its operation due to a parts shortage.
2011 Chevrolet Colorado Show Truck Teaser
We already know that General Motors is planning on a second-generation for the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize trucks. Now, before its debut later this month in Bangkok, GM has released a teaser sketch of a concept version of the new truck.

CHILD SEAT
Summary
GM IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2004-2011, CHEVROLET COLORADO, GMC CANYON, MODEL YEAR 2006, ISUZU I-280/I-350, AND MODEL YEAR 2007-2008, I-290/I-370, REGULAR CAB VEHICLES AND EXTENDED CAB VEHICLES WITHOUT A REAR SEAT AND EQUIPPED WITH A FRONT 60/40 SPLIT BENCH SEAT. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 225, "CHILD RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS." THE TOP TETHER ANCHOR FOR THE FRONT CENTER SEAT IS NOT ACCESSIBLE AND THE OWNER MANUAL DOES NOT INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING HOW TO USE THE TOP TETHER.
Consequences
BOTH NHTSA AND GM DISCOURAGE PLACEMENT OF A CHILD IN A FRONT SEAT. NEVERTHELESS, THERE ARE INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES THAT MAY REQUIRE PLACEMENT OF A CHILD IN A RESTRAINT IN THE FRONT CENTER SEATING POSITION OF THIS VEHICLE THAT DOES NOT OFFER A REAR SEAT. LACK OF ACCESS TO THE TOP TETHER ANCHOR AND A LACK OF INSTRUCTIONS AS TO HOW TO USE IT, MAY RESULT IN IMPROPER INSTALLATION OF A CHILD RESTRAINT. IMPROPER INSTALLATION OF A CHILD RESTRAINT CAN RESULT IN A REDUCTION IN THE RESTRAINT'S PERFORMANCE IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH AND AN INCREASED RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH TO THE CHILD SEATED IN THE RESTRAINT.
Remedy
DEALERS WILL CUT A HOLE INTO THE BACK PANEL TRIM COVER TO ALLOW ACCESS TO THE TOP TETHER ANCHOR FOR THE FRONT CENTER SEAT POSITION AND WILL PROVIDE SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION AS TO USE IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN.
