GM Recalls Certain 2024 Chevrolet Colorado Trucks Over Incorrect Tires

According to documents published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a number of 2024 Chevrolet Colorado trucks may have been fitted by dealers nationwide with incorrect tires. The recall involves Colorado Z71 and Colorado Trail Boss pickup trucks optioned with 20-inch black wheels, namely LPO SNX in GM vernacular. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
LPO stands for limited production option, while SNX is the option code of said wheels. As per the order guide for the 2024 Chevrolet Colorado, this is a dealer-installed option rather than a factory option. The Detroit-based manufacturer identified this problem back in March 2024. An estimated 56 vehicles have been fitted with the wrong tires by dealers, who had the incorrect tires shipped by the accessory distributor and installer. The ADI was not provided with adequate information by GM, thus explaining why the tires for said 56 pickup trucks had been inadvertently switched.

Dealers have already been instructed to check the tire dimensions of the suspect population. The Trail Boss should be equipped with 275/60 by 20-inch rubber, whereas the Z71 usually ships with 255/55 by 20-inch rubber. Z71 trucks also have to be inspected for any damage to the wheel liners.

The part numbers for said Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain rubber boots are 84781640 and 23376694. As for the suspect population, the 2024 model year Colorado trucks in question were produced at Wentzville Assembly Plant in Missouri between January 8, 2024 and March 6, 2024. In addition to the Colorado, the production facility is also tasked with assembling the mechanically similar GMC Canyon and two body-on-frame large vans, those being the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana.

Thankfully for affected customers, GM isn’t aware of any incidents associated with mixing up the Z71’s tires with those of the Trail Boss. Owner notifications will be mailed no later than July 8.

During the first quarter of 2024, the Colorado moved 14,992 units in the United States, putting it behind the V6-only Nissan Frontier (19,744 units) and the redesigned Toyota Tacoma (21,558 units). Before destination charge, other taxes, and options, the 2024 Colorado starts at $29,500 as of May 2024.

Prospective customers are presented with five trims in total, or six if you consider the ZR2 Bison a different animal from the already capable ZR2. The most affordable spec of the bunch is the rear-drive WT. Despite being fitted with 17-inch steelies, the work-oriented trim is nicely equipped in other areas.

Think CornerStep rear bumper, 11.3-inch touchscreen infotainment with Google built-in, 11-inch Driver Information Center, lots of safety tech, as well as a three-month platinum trial subscription to SiriusXM. All grades of the Colorado use a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-pot engine connected to an eight-speed automatic tranny developed by GM.

Only the WT and LT grades come with the standard tune of said engine, which puts out 237 horsepower and 260 pound-feet (350 Nm) at 1,200 rpm. Both can be optioned with the so-called TurboMax version, which is more than a tune because it’s mechanically different from the standard version. The 2.7-liter TurboMax belts out 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet (583 Nm) at 3,000 rpm. cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma cma
