2024 Chevrolet Colorado

General Motors has issued a stop-sale order for the 2024 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks. According to Automotive News, the stop-sale order is due to software issues. In a statement to the outlet, GM claims that a fix is in the works.

"Certain [model year 2024] Colorados and Canyons displayed intermittent software quality issues, identified during our rigorous validation process,” Brandee Barker, GM’s Vice President of Global Technology Communications, told Automotive News. “A fix has been identified and implemented into vehicles that have begun shipping to dealers this morning.”

Barker went on to state that GM has a group of software leaders working on the issue with its vehicles. "We've put in place a world-class software leadership team that is urgently working to overcome any issues in the short term, while building for the long term, including revamping the software development process and more importantly the validation process. We're confident that our vehicles will have software that exceeds customer expectations," Barker told Automotive News.

At the moment, GM hasn’t provided any information on what the specific issue is. The news of a stop-sale order follows a recent report from The Detroit Free Press that stated it had found a large number of Colorado and Canyon pickup trucks parked at one of GM’s facilities near its Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri. It seems like the pickup trucks that the Detroit Free Press found were in holding because of the software issue.

As the Detroit Free Press points out, this is the second stop-sale order that GM has issued in the past three months. In December, GM issued a stop-sale order for the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV. With the electric SUV, the stop-sale order was due to problems charging the vehicle and intermittent problems with the vehicle’s displays that owners reported. GM is reportedly still working on a fix for the Blazer EV.

The Colorado and Canyon pickup trucks that GM has shipped to dealerships will remain at dealers until they have been fixed. GM will also continue to hold trucks close to its Wentzville Assembly plant. The automaker did not provide a timeline for the fix or when it will begin delivering trucks again.
