GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept at Detroit 2011
Complete photo gallery on Auto123.com : http://123.ly/fY0BgF - With
several world premieres and unveilings, the Detroit Auto Show gave us the
opportunity to take a look at the the GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept.
The super sized truck will be the Ford SVT Raptor's closest competitor and
comes equipped with the new 6.6-litre Duramax Diesel engine producing 397
horsepower and 765
pound-feet of torque mated to an Allison 1000 six-speed automatic
2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept
Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has
yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the
Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer
is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no
firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or
efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for
enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the
20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes
its way closer to production.
Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to
give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the
Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker
has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures
the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have
heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all
together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the
States sometime soon.

Chevrolet Unveils Colorado Show Truck
Boldly styled show truck previews next-generation midsize pickup
BANGKOK, Thailand - Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in
advance of the Bangkok International Auto Show, where it is making its
global public debut. The concept previews the next-generation Colorado
midsize pickup truck, which will build on Chevrolet's strong truck DNA and
award-winning heritage. The Colorado goes on sale in Thailand later this
"Thailand is the world's-largest market for midsize pickups, so this was
the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado," said Susan
Docherty, vice president, GMIO Sales, Marketing and Aftersales. "Trucks
have been part of Chevrolet's core for nearly all of its 100-year history.
The Colorado reinforces that heritage with expressive design, refinement
and uncompromising capability."
The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-stance AWD chassis
and rides on large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. Power comes from an
efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine,
which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing
"Although this is a show vehicle, the basic proportions and form convey the
vision for the next-generation Colorado that we will bring to market," said
Brad Merkel, GM's global vehicle line executive. "It reflects a stylized
version of the new truck, one that takes into account rugged dependable
truck capabilities for commercial use as well as sophisticated refinement
for personal-use needs."
While the new Colorado was developed within GM's global product development
organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it would meet local
market needs. Roberto Rempel, GM's global vehicle chief engineer, lived in
Thailand for several months during the truck's development, immersing
himself in the market and observing how the Thai people use their trucks
and the road conditions they experience.
"Pickups are instrumental in the vibrant Thai economy and owners take great
pride in their trucks, which are used for both work and personal driving,"
he said. "These customers ask a lot of their trucks, so the powertrains and
chassis must be very robust to earn their trust -- and that's exactly what

Silverado ZR2 Concept
2011 san diego international auto show. Usually the Silverado is not a car
that catches much of an attention, but the ZR2 Concept is for sure the
Silverado that never was. The most amazing thing about the concept is the
LS supercharged crate engine from GM Performance Parts that delivers a
total of 550 hp.
The ZR2 concept features a custom bodywork includes carbon fiber fender
flares that stretch outward to cover the 35-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler
off-road tires and widened stance. The carbon fiber is also used for the
front fenders, extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and tailgate. On the
exterior the concept is painted in Dune Metallic.
On the interior the concept add more carbon fiber details on the dash,
along with black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching
to those trail runs more comfortable.
At a glance, it's clear the Silverado ZR2 concept wasn't designed to haul
flowers back from the nursery. With its widened body, tall stance and
powerful LS supercharged engine, it is ready to hit the berms, dry washes
and gullies of the Baja Peninsula.
The Silverado ZR2 is based on an extended cab/short box body. The custom
bodywork includes carbon fiber fender flares that stretch outward to cover
the 35-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires and widened stance. Much
of the truck's body is made of carbon fiber, including the front fenders,
extractor-style hood, rocker extensions and tailgate, which features large,
debossed CHEVROLET lettering as a nod to Chevy trucks
of the pas
The pickup box, which is protected with a spray-on liner, features a unique
locking storage system mounted to the extruded aluminum Cargo Management
System rails from Chevy Accessories.
Many of the carbon fiber parts, including the hood, are clear-coated,
rather than painted, to show off the intricate weave pattern of the
high-tech, lightweight material. The parts that aren't clear carbon fiber
are painted Dune Metallic, a color that blends with the desert terrain. A
large, more prominent grille is also part of the package and is a vision of
what designers would like to see in a production or accessory part. It is
very functional, feeding cool air to the 550-horsepower LS supercharged
crate engine from GM Performance Parts.
The combination of 20-inch BBS RD wheels -- reminiscent of historic Chevy
-- and aggressive Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires connect to the chassis via
BDS shocks and a four-inch lift kit to help negotiate those desert trails.
The new front fascia dramatically improves approach angle and skid plates
protect the chassis.
The interior features more carbon fiber details on the dash, along with
black leather and suede-trimmed seats with contrasting stitching to those
trail runs more comfortable.
"There's more to this concept than meets the eye," said Dewar. "Some of the
components are being explored for possible inclusion in upcoming models."
