10 electric utes on the horizon

The electrification revolution has made its way through hatchbacks to sedans and SUVs and now it has its sights set firmly on a new frontier: utes. As with most automotive industry showdowns, it was Tesla that kicked off this sparring match with its not-so-bulletproof Cybertruck, releasing a video showing the all-wheel-drive, all-electric pickup tugging a Ford F-150 up a hill.

General Motors not keen on electric or autonomous pickups

General Motors is planning to introduce 20 new electric cars over the next five years, but an electric pickup truck isn't part of the plan. Mike Abelson, GM vice president of global strategy, told The Detroit Free Press the company believes it will "lead the industry" in electric vehicles at some point in the next decade. Despite that, he categorically said there won't be any autonomous or electric trucks.

Performax recalls Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra for airbag fix

Local conversion firm Performax has issued a recall for its 2014 to 2017 model-year Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500 and GMC Sierra 2500 trucks over concerns a faulty module may fail to deploy the frontal airbags in a collision. According to the company, the affected vehicles are fitted with a sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) that may have defective software. If the condition occurs, this could prevent the deployment of the front airbags and seatbelt pretensioners in an accident.
