Totally New Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra Coming Next Year
If you're shopping in the highly competitive pickup truck market, expect to see a completely redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra next year, according to our friends at PickupTrucks.com.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 were last redesigned in 2006. They got a new body, frame and suspension. This time around, expect more of the same. We should see a totally new exterior and interior design, a new frame and heavily revised engines, PickupTrucks.com reports.
Another interesting tidbit are the rumors that GM will further distinguish the Sierra from the Silverado. Reports suggest that not only will the Sierra get more styling enhancements over the current model, but it might also get its own truck frame, different from the one used on the next-gen Silverado. The unique frame would allow engineers and marketers to further distinguish handling and packaging attributes. That would be a significant change for GMC; right now the “Professional Grade” brand is composed of nothing more than slightly warmed-over Chevrolet trucks, SUVs and crossovers.
We'll have more info about the two trucks when they are revealed, which will likely happen sometime early next year.
