GM set to unveil 2014 pickups
By MELISSA BURDEN AND DAVID SHEPARDSON / The Detroit News
General Motors Co. said Monday it will unveil its new full-size 2014 pickup trucks at a media event in Pontiac on Dec. 13 — a key vehicle line for the automaker.

GM said it will show off the Chevrolet 1500 full-size pickup and GMC Sierra at an event at Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac.

“The bold exterior design of the new Silverado reflects the enhanced capabilities of the truck while features such as jewel-like, projector beam headlamps showcase the careful attention given to every detail,” GM said. “The new Silverado will be on public display for the first time at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in January, and will start production next year.”

GM has not released a production schedule for the new trucks, but analysts and suppliers have indicated the new trucks likely would begin production in late spring 2013.

In a teaser photo Monday, GM showed the front headlamp, including the jewel-like projector beam, and a small piece of the grille. The new trucks also are expected to have a significantly revamped interior, with new features to complement buyers’ work and personal needs.

The all-new Silverado is among 13 new or significantly refreshed models Chevy expects to debut in 2013. The Chevy brand also in 2013 will release an all-new Silverado heavy-duty truck and Tahoe, among other vehicles.
