On December 13th General Motors Co. has planned to unveil its all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 pickup at a special event in Detroit. The GMC Sierra, is also expected to unveil at the same event. The highly anticipated new trucks are very much significant to America in terms of profitability. The Silverado 1500, which hasn’t been redesigned since 2006, has been GM’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. at 298,200 units in the first nine months of the year. The 2014 Silverado and Sierra, are expected to hit the showrooms sometime in 2013. The public will get to see the vehicle for the first time in January at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
GM revealed a teaser photo of the jewel like projector-beam headlamps on the reformed Silverado. The spy shots of the truck reveal the pickup having a beefier, taller front end and more chrome. “The bold exterior design of the new Silverado reflects the enhanced capabilities of the truck,” GM said today in a statement. A GMC spokesman confirmed that the Sierra also will be shown at the Dec. 13 event. Details of the new truck are scarce, but from the teaser photo released Monday, GM showed the front headlamp, which included the jewel-like projector beam, and a small piece of the grille.
The new trucks also are likely to have an extensively revamped interior, with new features which will complement buyers work and personal needs. As per the automaker, the Silverado has entered into the “final validation” and “torture testing,” phase. The pickup will compete against Ford Motor Co.’s F-150 series and Chrysler Group LLC’s Ram pickup. The production of the vehicle will start in 2013 at the company’s plants in Fort Wayne, Ind. and Silao, Mexico. The brand new Silverado is one of the 13 new or significantly refreshed models Chevy expects to debut in 2013. GM’s most expected launches in coming years are the redesigned Corvette, the seventh generation of the iconic sports car, and the next generation of its full-sized pickups.
