  1. I see this vehicle getting cross shopped with the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander. This packaging is more familiar to those buyers as are the features.
  2. The 1968 Chevrolet C/K 1500 P/U had coil over shock rear suspension. The 1987 Chevrolet and GMC C/K 1500 & 2500 P/Us were the first to debut a mechanically locking diff. The 2007 Silverado and Sierra to offer a electro-mechanically locking diff. The 2000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra had an available and nearly indestructible composite bed. The 2001 Silverado and GMC Sierra had an available 4-wheel steer option. The Gen III blocks had higher horsepower/liter than the Ford DOHC engines of the era. GM was the first to introduce a spin-on transmission oil filter in the HD truck segment. GM was the first automaker to comply with the Tier-2 Diesel emission standards with the ground-up design of the DuraMAXX which replaced a Detroit Diesel 350. The first hybrid ever mass produced was a GM-Electromotive; the first and last hybrid full size truck was a Chevrolet Silverado. I'd say GM has a track record of innovation in the truck segment. Sometimes it is best to play poker with a good face; the current model trucks are a heavy refresh of the GMT-900s which is inexpensive all told and has sold well thus far. The time and investment is best spent after letting Ford show their hand. Up the anty after their truck is to market and you again gain the advantage.
  3. September 2013: General Motors

    Has GM discontinued the Colorado and Canyon? The numbers are dismal and consistent with the end of a product line...
  4. GM News: General Motors To Differentiate Next-Gen SUVs

    I am certain you could find an identicle article before the GMT-900 release. And the 800 before it. In fact, I am pretty sure that you can hear some of the same comments on the most recent release of the '14 trucks. Don't get worked up, they'll be differentiated by upfitting and not much else.
  5. Some important details worth mentioning, triple sealed doors with frame (1st for chevy trucks), available "max" crew cab configuration, and a return to the last best selling Chevy style of the 70s. Guaranteed this is an evolution of the mid-70s squared stlye. In fact I have a bet that there is chrome egg crate headed our way.
  6. NAIAS 2012:Honda Accord Concept

    Guaranteed that Honda didn't have the budget because they didn't hit business model sales target for the "outgoing" model. Think about it, it was new for '08, peak of financial disaster was '09, then a earthquake that interupted parts supplies in '10 (or '11, don't remember). Any way you slice it, sales started strong in '08 as Honda expected then cooled and never recovered. My belief was that it was largely due to influences out of their control.
  7. Buick News: Teased again: Buick's upcoming Encore

    Am I the only one that sees this as a replacement for the Buick Aztek? Which on a more and sadly serious note, sold fairly well for awhile.
  8. GM News: 21 Week Vacation Coming To GM's Truck Plants

    Going to go on record here and call the debut of the 2014 GMXs: 2012 Texas State Fair in October. They will be sold after January '13 as '14s much like the '07 GMTs were sold in early '06.
  9. Either there is less tumblehome on the cab or, this is a strectched 4-door. The rear window is larger and more squared off. Since these doors are the same on the 'Burb, perhaps this is a sign the 'Burb will be more squarish?
  10. 2012 Model Year Changes for Buick

    Unless I read that wrong, Enclave gets a 4cyl model this year.
  11. 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Lineup See Their Prices Go Up

    If you want to see a next generation Camaro you'll need more room. After all, the ZL1 is in the Corvette pricing territory. Corvette will move down in volume, up in price, and... likely with the next generation further up in design.
  12. Mercedes-Benz Close To A Decision With Maybach

    The reason Maybach fails is that the line-up is made up of upfitted M-B S classes. No one shoping in the multi six figure saloons would consider them. If they do they would be dumb not to purchase a S600L with a driver.
  13. Other than the flying B why would you buy this over a M-B CL?
  14. Nissan refreshes Murano two years after introduction

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, the 2009 Murano was a refresh of the 1st gen Murano.
  15. 2010 SRX Has Largest Gains In Sales And Residual Value In Segment

    Apparently you haven't heard that it is in the 10 Best and has the best resale value of any midsize SUV. Go look at used car prices. They are high. The pilot has seating for 8 adults and has more fuel economy than a suburban/expedition EL which are the only other two to carry 8. The pilot has the same wheelbase as a Tahoe with less overall length and similar fuel economy at a lower price. Much lower. The interior is well built and refined with great features not found on other SUVs. Factory acoustic glass, sun shades, 110V power outlet, iPod docking, bluetooth to name a few. The pilot is good at what it is good at. If you need to tow kids and their stuff or an extended family on a budget in comfort and luxury at an affordable price it is THE suv. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.
