At 10 am this morning GM will unveil two of their most important models for 2007. The Silverado and Sierra full-size pickups' debut will be broadcast live via GM's Fast Lane blog here and your auto-obsessed friends at Autoblog will provide full team coverage.
These new GMT-900-based trucks represent the General's best efforts in the overly competitive full-size truck market, with much of the company's future dependent on their success.

GM is touting the new model's fuel efficiency, towing capacity, interior amenities and exterior styling as class leading and although we have already seen a variety of photos come out in the last few days, Gary White, VP of GM's truck division, contends there is much more to expect.

With the popularity of the GMT-900 line of SUVs, it seems that the General may have a winner on their hands and White acknowledges that these new models are a key component in insuring GM's future is bright.

      Hey BB (#20), this bolg is FULL of American manufactures bashing. I'm a Ford guy, but I want GM to do well, but to not take the sales crown away from the F series. It's a real head scratcher when people think that the buyers of these trucks have no clue they don't get the best mileage until they drive them home. But these same Civic drivers (those who don't still live at home) sure like these trucks when it's time to yank out the shrubs or trees in their front yards (or more likely their parents house).

      I'm definitely not a truck fan, but these 2 trucks have the largest front grille I've ever seen on a vehicle. It's not very aesthetically pleasing if you ask me.

      I actually think it looks too similar to the F-150 from pretty much all angles.

      And I have to agree with post #2. There are plenty of new Tahoes and Suburbans sitting around Chevy dealerships lately, while Toyota dealerships can't seem to keep many of their vehicles much longer than a week (but everybody already knew that).

      This is all very funny, because chevy sells about 4x more trucks than toyota.

      Nice trucks but sheesh, can the GM guy doing the unveiling be any less enthusiastic? He seems so totally bored that I wonder if he'd rather be home eating Fruit Loops or watching Tom and Jerry or something. I'm getting sleeeepy...my eyelids are getting heeeavy...zzz...zzz...

      Yes, watch GM unveil another piece of shit vehicle that is uninspired and ugly and will be recalled 20 times in the span of a few years...

      Juan - You are so right! The grill is way too wide and the lights are just weird.

      Why would GM ever update these! I mean, it's not like I chastise them for having stale product anyway, and it's not like Toyota and Nissan have entered the market! WHY NO 6 SPEEDS! The GMT-900's are selling horribly, only 200,000 Tahoes will be sold this year! What were they thinking! GOD, GM, grow the fuck up and stop selling these! It's why you're going bankrupt!

      "Is GM suppose to control mother nature too?"
      That's the dumbest comment I have read in a while.

      A simple mic sock would have solved the problem.

      Do you think Nissan will sue Chevy for ripping off their fender flares??? :)

      Anything that gets 12-14 mpg in real world 'work use' driving will be a 'big hit' for 6 months, followed by 4 to 5 yrs of declining sales and increasing rebates until the next model is introduced. If this is the management turnaround plan and "key component in insuring GM's future is bright", the stockholders are screwed, and GM market share and profitability will continue heading into that black hole. I'll bet Toyota finds GM's continued reliance on trucks and lack of competitive cars amusing, unfortunately.
