The Detroit News reports that General Motors will be issuing a sort of emergency update for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra for the 2015 model year to keep the pickups fresh and competitive. This in a grave effort to continue be a viable alternative to Ford, who recently turned the tides with their aluminum-bodied F150.
The outlet spoke with an “executive engineer,” where they learned a slew of revisions will occur year after year for the pickups. This decision was made after the current Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups experienced a rather slow launch.
Upgrades will range from changes in appearances (like the days when visual changes festooned cars on a yearly bases in the 1950s-1970s), capability, fuel economy, and more. Stop-start technology may be a part of the list of changes to be implemented, as well as new transmissions and even diesel engines to combat Chrysler’s Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which had an amazing sales and order launch when compared to GM’s offerings.
