According to our friends over at PickupTrucks.com, Chevrolet will show off the latest iteration of its Heavy Duty pickup truck at the Chicago Auto Show next month. The 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 and 3500 (2010 model shown above) are expected to be equipped with a new version of the well-regarded 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 engine that will almost assuredly use a urea solution to curb nitrogen oxide emissions. General Motors continues to partner with the diesel experts at Isuzu for the Duramax engine.

Under what's sure to be somewhat revised sheetmetal will reportedly be an all-new chassis along with some "other surprises," surmises PickupTrucks.com. We expect a GMC Sierra HD to also be on display, but we can't say for sure. We'll be on hand in Chicago to see how GM reacts to the 2011 Ford Super Duty pickups and their all-new 6.7-liter diesel V8 engine, so stay tuned.

      If the reg cab comment was referring to GM's infuriating insistence on not adding the 6 inches or more of storage area to the regular cabs (vs ford, dodge, and toyota) then I agree, though I assume those inches saved mean a shorter vehicle, a shorter wheelbase, longer beds, or some other advantage (that doesn't compensate really)

      As for looks, I agree the pic is terrible. Rejecting the new bulbous design, I picked up a used older chevy 2500 (after owning every other make of truck) for work and it's amazing what a decent set of wheels/tires did for the looks. As with many vehicles, it's as if the designers worked with one size wheel and then the bean counters and fuel economy engineers slapped skinny ones on there. But with the older version it wasn't as big a deal. I saw a new Chevy 1500 series drive by the other day that actually looked pretty good, and as it drove away I noticed.....20" wheels and wider tires. Proper proportion matters, both in human looks and with vehicles.

      GM is losing big with consumers buying other brands, so what does GM CARD do, they raise interest rates on their most loyal customers. I received no prior notice and was never late but still my interest rate was raised to 32%. This interest rate has been in place for over a year . Do you think this consumer will ever buy GM again?

        Not sure what a credit card offered by HSBC has to do with GM itself. The changes in credit card rates have to do with the company that offers the card, not the deal they have worked out with another company to offer you rewards from that card.

        In other words, your GM Card was not given to you by GM, but by a credit card company.

        That's sort of like complaining to United because your United Mileage Plus card rates went up when it's Chase that gives you the card, not United. Or complaining to Sony because of the rates on your Sony Card which is also given to you by Chase.

        The bank determines your rate, not the company shown on your rewards card.

        Blame it on the Credit CARD Act of 2009 for most of the changes, but a general tightening of the credit market due to the current economy also plays a role.

        Here are a few links that explain it in more depth:

      Those bulbous fenders was one big styling mistake by GM. I realize trucks aren't suppose to look pretty, but they aren't suppose to look ugly either.

      Why are they still making such short cab pickups? Even adding 6 inches would make it better accommodate taller drivers. I have been shopping for a used pickup lately and noticed that the short cab versions are a dime a dozen and don't have nearly the resale of extended cabs. Any small cash a person saves upon new purchase would be lost five fold upon resale.

        Contractors, farmers, the military, construction companies, utilities, parts chasers, maintenance, schools districts, public works, snow plows, tow trucks, line workers, phone companies, repo trucks, granny and gramps pulling that camper following the sun and on and on are the many reasons there are so many regular cab pickup and account for half the sales.

        Single cabs haven't accounted for half of sales since the 80s. They make up around 20-25% now. Which is a huge increase from the 12-15% they made up before the gas panic and personal truck market collapse.
