14 January, 2018, 14:39 | Author: Darnell Taylor
GM kicked off the Detroit auto show by revealing an all-new Chevrolet Silverado pickup, the first completely redesigned truck for the automaker since the 2007 model year.
"Truck customers told us they want the flawless truck for them and not a "one size fits most" truck", said GM design boss Mike Simcoe. Morningstar Inc. estimates that profits are at least $10,000 per truck - and even more for high-end models - compared with about $3,000 for passenger cars.
When GM offered employee pricing to consumers in December, the average incentive spending for each Silverado 1500 sold was nearly $8,000, compared with about $5,000 for Ford's F-150, according to data from J.D. Power. The driver sits more than an inch higher, as are the hood and roofline. A spoiler on the back of the cab helps with airflow, boosting aerodynamics and efficiency.
Passengers will be surrounded by a safety cage made of various steels, while the body is made of aluminum and steel.
Executives said the new Silverado would have a high-strength steel bed floor and use "mixed materials" to cut weight and improve fuel economy.
As for the bed, there Chevrolet has some fighting talk for Ford.

In fact, EA is pleased with the sales of the game across the board, and according to NoF, new announcements will be made soon. After beating the main game, players can take part in two interwoven Ballon World competitive modes: "Hide it" and "Find it".
At the preview of the Silverado on Saturday, GM's product development chief Mark Reuss took yet another shot at the competition, saying "I don't think you can get much work done with an aluminum hammer". There are now 21 tie-down points, twelve of which are fixed in the corners - each capable of handling 500 pounds, twice what the current model can deal with - and nine of which are movable.
The Silverado and its cousin, the GMC Sierra, had the lowest combined share of the full-size truck market on record past year, despite having incentives that were almost $1,000 higher than the Ford F-150 on average, according to car-shopping website Edmunds.
The steel bed is now a stronger grade of steel alloy, for extra strength without adding weight.
There's no denying how important the Silverado is to Chevrolet.
At a sneak preview in December, GM said it would offer eight versions of the new Silverado and more engine and transmission combinations than the current lineup. For the 2019 model year, there'll be eight Silverado models, in fact.
What remains to be seen is how much power the new 3.0 liter Duramax diesel engine can actually deliver against Ford's Power Stroke. V-8 offerings will include significantly revised 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines, which will including dynamic fuel offerings which can shut-off up to seven cylinders at a time to conserve fuel. The latter is a tough-looking brute with blacked-out grille, two-inch suspension lift and Z71 off-road package including locking rear differential, skid plates and all-terrain tires. The Silverado will couple the 10-speed with its 6.2-liter V8 and diesel. Inside, there'll be Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging for your smartphone, and the option of 4G LTE with a WiFi hotspot. It has more interior storage space in the seats in the second row. The Silverado will begin production at GM's Fort Wayne assembly plant in Indiana.
After picking up just five points out of an available 39, Paul Clements tenure at the Liberty Stadium came to an end in December. That's 13 points required from these final 16 matches and if we can't do that then we don't deserve to stay in the league.
