Yes the plants do audits on their first models and look for issues. They don’t have to drive all iver but they do like rolling up miles and holidays make a good opportunity if someone involved travels.Your wager is supported by the other thread spotting of a silver Colorado by Wentzville, because the plates are nearly a match.

To be honest. .. . a clarification.These are not Looking for engineering issues but more likely assembly issues. Though a last min engineering issue can arrive. Jeff Dennison at the Tech Center is one of the guys who fixes these last min things. He has a pretty stressful job as it is up to him at times to keep things On time.
I'm not sure what you were trying to clarify here? You basically just repeated what he already said using 3x more words.To be honest. .. . a clarification.
Indeed, Pilot vehicles are used by assembly plant and manufacturing engineering to weed out final issues . It is still engineering.
Certainly no design or other uses unless something shows up during Pilot runs.
There are many levels of engineering in the automotive business and plant and manufacturing engineering is where the rubber hits the road to see if the design engineering groups have missed any marks.
Engineering also continues into problem resolution after a vehicle is in the market for some time and issues may develop. There is often interchange between some groups of engineering to some degree at times as well.
For those of us who've worked in various GM plants we know specific types of engineers exist in many capacities.I'm not sure what you were trying to clarify here? You basically just repeated what he already said using 3x more words.
I think you might be getting hung up on semantics here. As a long time engineer I had no problem understanding what he said. The term "engineering" can be used in many different ways such as a verb to describe a design process. In that respect his statements were plenty clear.For those of us who've worked in various GM plants we know specific types of engineers exist in many capacities.
He said "These are not Looking for engineering issues, but more likely assembly issues. " . . when in fact. . they are loking for engineering issues.
Just clarifying engineering also includes Plant and Manufacturing engineering. Assembly issues ARE engineering issues handled by Plant and Manufacturing engineers.
So the statement that " These (They ? ) are not Looking for engineering issues . . " is not clear.
They avoid those kinds of things as so many people want so many different things. I like a tri fold hard cover but others like a one piece hard cover and others will want a soft cover. Even a few want a cap.Yeah I would just think that on an ATX4, (what about $60K midsized truck) they would have at least thrown the hard tri-folding tonneau cover on or maybe the metal sliding tonneau cover? You know because it fits the price range of the truck more. But guess not.
