Report: General Motors to update Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra for 2015

According to the Detroit News, word is that General Motors will be issuing a sort of emergency update for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra for the 2015 model year. These updates will be minor to keep the pickups competitive, especially against Ford, who recently turned the tides with their aluminum-bodied F150.

After speaking with an “executive engineer,” Detroit News learned that this will kick off a slew of revisions that 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.
