    Next-Gen Chevy Silverado Coming in 2013?
    Next-Gen Chevy Silverado Coming in 2013?

    Almost a year before General motors went bankrupt, the automaker adjourned the next generation Chevrolet Silverado as well as GMC Sierra from 2012 to an unknown future date. High gas prices have negatively affected the truck sales. With the reduction in sales, the news came as no surprise.

    The Chevrolet Silverado, being the best selling truck last month, faced a loss of 15.7 percent in sales. According to the Automotive News, General Motors plants, which build Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra will be idled during 2012. These trucks will not be produced until 2013.

    “GM hasn't been very forthright with the amount of changes scheduled for the next-generation trucks, though the expectation is that the updates will be substantial. With 2016 fuel economy regulations right around the corner and the recent resurgence of $4 per gallon gasoline, the new pickups will definitely need to be lighter and more efficient.”

    Silverado Triumphs Over Ford and Ram in Real-World Testing

    Adding fuel to the fire of competition among heavy-duty truck manufacturers, Chevrolet launched “HD to HD”, a video series that plays off the 2011 Chevy Silverado HD with its old-standing rivals on both the test track and off-road paths.

    In a series of real-words tests, the Silverado HD competes against the 2011 Ford Super Duty and the 2011 Dodge Ram HD diesels. The three-quarter-ton and one-ton pickups were compared by an independent company in several categories, including acceleration, passing, and braking test, all conducted with a loaded bed, or a loaded trailer. Other probes measured the effectiveness of the exhaust brakes on long downgrades and the stiffness of the frames during twist-ditch simulations. Silverado HD trucks outpaced the competitors in acceleration and in passing, at both sea level and at 6,000 feet while towing loaded trailers.

    “We worked hard on the Duramax-Allison combination to deliver torque smoothly throughout the entire power band,” said Rick Spina, GM’s global vehicle line executive for full size trucks. “That is what gives us class-leading acceleration.”

    While “HD to HD” tests were meant to showcase capabilities that matter to truck buyers most of all, fuel economy was not included in this round of testing. The fuel efficiency comparisons will probably be conducted later this year, after the new High Output Ram 3500 goes on sale in June.

    2011 Chevy Silverado HD Named Truck of the Year by Motor Trend

    Motor Trend, the global automotive authority on vehicles, announced Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty as its Truck of the Year. The award is one of the world's most respected automotive accolades.

    The Motor Trend team tested two Chevy Silverado HDs, two GMC Sierra HDs and two Ford super Duties back to back in a number of different conditions.

    According to the editors, all changes made by the engineers for 2011 Silverado HD could be felt immediately. Although, the truck’s exterior might not look really different from the 2007-10 model, the contents have been seriously revised. Both three-quarter-ton and one-ton trucks got new fully boxed frames, more crossmembers and hydroformed frame segments. Plus, the new model features all-new front and rear suspensions, brakes and axels. As a result, the overall stiffness was drastically increases; vibrations were reduced; the general driving control and ride were improved.

    2011 marks the 22nd year for the Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award®. Previous winners have included the 2010 Ram Heavy Duty, 2009 Ford F-150 and the 2008 Toyota Tundra.
