Repetitive and Physical: 90 Years of Durability Testing

GM Milford Proving Ground milestone birthday today

DETROIT – In 18 months, the durability team at General Motors’ Milford Proving Ground can put a vehicle through an entire lifecycle. Durability tests are long, repetitive and physically demanding.

“In 90 years, what hasn’t changed is that durability testing is physical,” said Stephen Jenkins, director, Global Proving Ground Operations, Test Labs and Vehicle Material Engineering. “We can mathematically calculate how well a part should hold up under certain conditions, but it isn’t until we get a driver in the product and test over and over again that we can be sure.
Here are some of the benchmarks a vehicle must endure before the Milford durability team will release it for production.

·         100,000 miles of customer use – the team drives a test vehicle up to 25,000 miles, though it is in such extreme conditions that it represents 100,000 miles of customer use
·         Extreme tests – Belgian Block Loop, pothole drives, chatter bumps, twist ditches, speed bumps and more are driven for entire days testing various parts of the vehicle
·         Humidity chambers - Built in the late 1960s with new ones added in the 1980s, every car is soaked in humidity chambers. On numerous occasions cars will go in these corrosion booths for hours at a time and endure high temperatures and humidity      

“We are always pushing ourselves to test even the smallest part of a vehicle to ensure that the entire product from the engine down to the screws and bolts are tough enough to handle the driving our customers need,” Jenkins said.

General Motors Co. (NYSE:GM, TSX: GMM) and its partners produce vehicles in 30 countries, and the company has leadership positions in the world's largest and fastest-growing automotive markets. GM, its subsidiaries and joint venture entities sell vehicles under the Chevrolet, Cadillac, Baojun, Buick, GMC, Holden, Jiefang, Opel, Vauxhall and Wuling brands. More information on the company and its subsidiaries, including OnStar, a global leader in vehicle safety, security and information services, can be found at

The Case for Roll-Out Cargo Beds

One of the challenges to maximizing cargo space in a truck or van is that sometimes there is a need to store product, tools, or gear in areas that are difficult to reach. This negatively impacts productivity by increasing loading and unloading times and puts workers at greater risk of musculo-skeletal disorders.

A roll-out cargo bed, which operates like a large flat drawer on the cargo floor in a van or truck bed, could solve this problem and protect the worker’s health, making the most of the cargo space, without having to enter the truck bed or van cargo area, for quicker and safer loading and unloading.

The business case for roll out cargo bed systems is based on increased productivity and reduced injuries. Making tools and equipment easier to access not only saves time and energy for workers, but also protects them from getting hurt when they need to get to hard-to-reach items.

2015 GMC Canyon: Top 5 Hits and Misses

The new 2015 GMC Canyon seems to offer quite a bit of value for what it costs, but this is by no means the perfect midsize pickup truck. We're guessing there will be a great deal of sales numbers watching, which will determine if GM can invest in more options, variations and even some special editions. But for that to happen, the three-truck strategy will have to bear fruit relatively quickly. We're guessing that the Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado will inject some much needed energy into the segment, but it will take some time. For now, here are our favorite and not-so-favorite details on the new Canyon.

  1.     Overall look of the truck echoes the Sierra 1500
  2.     All Terrain-exclusive AutoTrac is great 4x4 tech
  3.     Available rear-seat delete in extended cab for more rear storage
  4.     Available 4G LTE multiple hotspots for mobile internet access
  5.     GMC exclusive logo with spray-in bedliner
  1.     No optional axle gear choices for either engine
  2.     Extended cab doors only open 90 degrees
  3.     Why wouldn't it be a simple trans software program to include a Sport mode?
  4.     No larger side-view mirror option for better towing/bed visibility
  5.     Why not offer a 140-inch wheelbase extended cab with ultra-long bed? image by Evan Sears
