We already knew that General Motors was planning to debut its new Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups at the Detroit Auto Show in January, but the automaker has now confirmed that the trucks will meet the world at a special event on December 13.
Aside from these new headlamps, the only other for-sure detail that we know about the new Silverado is that it will be powered by GM's new small-block V8 – an engine that we'll be seeing for the first time in just a few days. Rumors have suggested that smaller V6 engines will be on tap, as well, including a possible turbocharged unit to compete with the hot-selling 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine in the Ford F-150.
Rest assured, we'll be on hand at GM's event in December to bring you the full skinny on the new Silverado and its GMC Sierra twin.
DETROIT – Chevrolet will take the wraps off the all-new Silverado 1500 full-size pickup on Dec. 13 at a special event in the Detroit area. 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.
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.
