First Drive: 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Redline

Flexibility, looks, power all in one midsize truck package.

by on Apr.20, 2018

The Chevrolet Colorado Redline is one of several variants to the brand's highly successful midsize truck.

While pickup trucks share some of generic similarities, the stylistic differences are always critical and one of the trend setters since it first appeared has been the Chevrolet Colorado.

The Colorado seems to be a perfect size for working in urban spaces since it’s relatively easy to maneuver into urban or suburban parking spaces. It also has a spacious interior and looks handsome either sitting at the curb or out in traffic.

Chevrolet has also smoothed out the ride by beefing up the suspension and improved the steering and brakes on the truck so it’s easier and more enjoyable to drive even if you are traveling a good distance. (more…)

Big Changes Coming at VW, Says New CEO

Diess targeting “slimmed down company” and focus on new technologies.

by on Apr.13, 2018

VW's new CEO Herbert Diess wants to both cut costs and shift focus to new technologies.

Volkswagen Group is likely to be a very different company in the coming years, at least if new CEO Herbert Diess has his way, the new chief executive outlining some of the key changes he has in mind during a Friday media briefing that followed a management shake-up the day before.

The one-time BMW board member has been viewed as a change agent since joining VW in 2015, just months before a scheme to rig diesel emissions tests was revealed by the U.S. EPA. Diess has already trimmed what is often described as a bloated workforce, in the process slashing almost $5 billion in costs.

He is expected to further attack costs at the German giant while also putting more emphasis on new technologies and services. And VW officials suggested they could move to trim assets, though they cautioned that a rumored spin off of their truck business isn’t in the cards – yet. (more…)

FCA Continuing Diesel Settlement Talks with DOJ, CARB

Discussions centering on potential penalties for automaker.

by on Apr.11, 2018

The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is part of the group of vehicles that allegedly used a cheat device to beat emissions tests.

Despite repeatedly denying any wrongdoing, Fiat Chrysler is in talks with the U.S. Justice Department and California Air Resources Board to reach a settlement about accusations it used illegal used software to beat diesel emissions tests.

The discussions, which according to multiple reports, are very far along, address allegations that FCA used the software, in a manner similar to Volkswagen’s diesel testing cheat device, for 104,000 U.S. diesel vehicles – mostly light trucks – sold since 2014.

According to Reuters, Ken Feinberg, an adviser in the process, at a federal court hearing in San Francisco revealed that government lawyers and Fiat Chrysler were swapping documents as part of the settlement process, which was moving “at a rather swift pace.” (more…)

Ford Recalls 350,000 Trucks, SUVs and Mustangs

Automaker issues two recalls for transmission problems.

by on Apr.06, 2018

The 2018 Ford F-150 is subject to a recall due to a problem that results in the truck being in a different gear than the driver selected.

Ford announced it is recalling more than 350,000 F-Series trucks and Expeditions in the U.S., Canada and Mexico due to a potentially unseated transmission gear shift cable clip, which cause the vehicle to be in a different gear than is shown.

The action covers the 2018 F-150 pickup and Expedition large SUV with 10-speed automatic transmissions as well as 2018 F-650 and F-750 trucks with six-speed transmissions.

Safety News!

The problem stems from a clip that locks the gear shift cable to the transmission that may not be fully seated. The partially seated clip or a clip that becomes dislodged may allow the transmission to be in a gear that is different from the gear shift position selected by the driver, the automaker says.

VW Targets the American Heartland with Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept

“We want to be a relevant player” in a truck-crazed market, says CEO.

by on Mar.28, 2018

Volkswagen's Hinrich Woebcken unveiled its Tanoak pickup concept at the New York Auto Show.

There are few surprises at auto shows these days, at least from a media perspective, automakers routinely signaling what they’ve got coming, usually offering press kits and pictures well in advance of a product’s official debut.

Volkswagen managed to pull off one of the rare surprises this year, however. While it did give a heads-up on plans to roll out the Atlas Sport Cross Concept it managed to keep pretty much everyone in the dark about a second introduction at the 2018 New York International Auto Show: the Atlas Tanoak Concept.

Truck News!

While that’s just a show car for now, the big question is whether it signals the automaker’s intent on getting back into the truck game for the first time in decades. If so, it would become only the second modern pickup to be based on a crossover, rather than a traditional, truck-based platform. (more…)

Jeep, VW Poised to Launch New Pickups — Maybe in NYC

Could two new concepts debut this week in New York?

by on Mar.26, 2018

The Jeep Sandstorm concept is going to the annual Easter Safari — it's a truck.

Everyone knows pickup trucks are a big deal and a couple of new ones from Jeep and Volkswagen are apparently coming closer to reality.

First off is the Jeep pickup truck built off the new Jeep Wrangler platform. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. officials confirmed that the Jeep pick-up truck was under development a long time ago. In fact, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne predicted Jeep could sell as many as 100,000 annually once production gets rolling.

But up until now FCA has been a little vague about when it might actually enter the showrooms. (more…)

Ford and Mahindra Teaming Up on New SUVs and an EV

Partnership focuses on India but could target “other markets.”

by on Mar.23, 2018

Even as Ford and Mahindra lay out plans for the Indian market, Mahindra is ramping up U.S. production of its Roxor SUV.

After agreeing to form a strategic alliance last year, Ford and India’s Mahindra & Mahindra now plan to jointly develop at least two new sport-utility vehicles, as well as an electric vehicle.

The two manufacturers say they will initially target the fast-growing Indian market where Ford has been trying to expand its presence. But they eventually may look at opportunities in “other markets,” according to a source in the U.S.

Global Automotive Insight!

“Today’s announcement is the next step in the collaboration between Mahindra and Ford,” said Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. “Both teams are working together on joint development areas in keeping with industry requirements and leveraging mutual strengths. We are excited about the synergies unveiled through this collaboration and the potential opportunities it will bring.”

FCA Recalling 300K Ram Pickups for Gas Tank Problem

Automaker's second Ram pickup recall in last month.

by on Mar.16, 2018

FCA is recalling 300,000 Ram pickups due to a problem with the gas tank.

Fiat Chrysler issued another gas tank-related recall, ordering more than 300,000 Ram pickup trucks to head to dealers because the fuel tanks can sag.

The action affects Ram 1500 pickups from 2009–12, mainly in cold-weather U.S. states and Canada where salt is used to clear snow from roads. In the U.S. the trucks are in 20 states and Washington, D.C.

Safety News!

An investigation found a bracket can corrode, allowing the tanks sag, the company noted. The remaining structure will stop the tanks from falling. Fiat Chrysler says it’s not aware of any crashes, fires, leaks or injuries due to the problem. (more…)

Ford Plans for Growth in New Product Segments

Exec says new EV should help spur battery-electric sales.

by on Mar.16, 2018

Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's product development chief, says promoting better EVs will help spur sales of battery-electrics.

Ford Motor Co.’s product development chief says one way to make electric vehicles more popular is to give them wider appeal.

Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president for product development, said noted that even when gas prices were high, consumers didn’t especially gravitate towards EVs or hybrids. Thus, Ford is preparing to roll out a unique EV with the broad appeal of a crossover and more performance.

“EVs have great instantaneous low-end torque,” Thai-Tang told TheDetroitBureau.com after briefing by senior Ford executives, including CEO Jim Hackett. (more…)
