There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.

Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".

Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

      Any news or rumors about a raptor competitor?

        Put all the underpinnings for offroading and the option of either the new LT1 V8 or the 6.2L Duramax would be pretty sick.

        They should bring back the Baja edition.

      Looks like the hood is way higher than the current iteration, maybe they squeezed the greenhouse a little bit. I agree with Felspawn that is evolutionary, and think they needed revolutionary. Right now they've designed something that only caught up with Ford and Ram. It would have been cool if they had gone toward the GMC Teradyne concept, maybe more of a cab-forward to shorten the wheel bases a little, shave some weight, and look a little more futuristic. GM is a car company run by a telecom CEO; what do they expect?

      Interested to see what this has to offer. Although I'm still years away from needing a new truck so by then they'll probably have all new trucks out from the big 3. Currently though it would be a tough choice for me between a Ram and an F150.

      Kinda excited to see what's GM answer to the EcoBoost is... Hope the fuel efficiency and power improvements will be a game change. Also to see if GM fixed the interior from the spy shot, that got negative reviews. One step closer to unveiling the next Escalade! Purchase the Denali after owning the 1st and 2nd gen Escalade. 3rd gen is a little to flash for my style :)

      It looks like an '80 C10, with some headlights from the J.C. Whitney catalog. Are side saddle gas tanks coming back, too?

        I wish the newer Chevys would look more like the 67-72' models. In my opinion, those were the best looking Chevy trucks of all time.

          A family member of mine has a Blazer from that era, a 72', and I have never seen something turn so many heads, or get so many comments and compliments from people. Most of them are too young, and have no idea what it is, but seem to love everything about it, and are full of questions and compliments. Heck, one time we even got a thumbs up, while going down the interstate, from a guy who was driving a Prius. When he first pulled up along side of us, I was expecting to see a middle finger!! LOL Sometimes, I often can't help but wonder what would happen if someone from GM headquarters was with us some of those times. I'd like to think a lightbulb would go on in his head.

          Agreed. I see quite a lot of them still on the roads. Some are beaters, some are restored. They are quite beautiful. However if they went back to the round wheel wells, the haters (in their ignorance) would think they were ripping off Ford. The square-look is the in thing with trucks. The Colorado will offer a 180 on that, though.

        I don't see much 1980 in that picture. I see more of an evolution of the current design.

      Wow, let me guess. Does it have a V8, almost look like the truck built for the last 80 years and tow XX,XXX pounds more than any other truck EVER built? NAILED IT.

        @sbarb0
        Well, like the trucks of the last 80 years, I am guessing it will have 4 wheels, a steering wheel, an engine bay in front of the cab, and a bed behind it. Do you have a better idea in mind? As for the weight and available power-trains? We'll know more about all of that when it is released. Cars and trucks have gotten heavier over the years because of government safety mandates, and the preconceived notions that people a gozillion high tech and luxury features, and don't want anything with less than 4 doors. That bug has hit the truck market especially hard.

      The answer to that EcoBoost better be that 4.5L Duramax or another small displacement turbo diesel.

      First thing I thought of when I saw this was a older Gen Dodge Ram! Any one else?
