  1. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 2/5/2018 FCA was ready to use multiple commercial spots during this year's Super Bowl to promote the heck out of the all new 2019 RAM. Instead, it has ignited a firestorm over the use of a speech by Martin Luther King, Jr as the background track in a commercial to sell trucks. The NY Daily News says "Dodge’s Super Bowl ad distorts MLK’s message of service to sell trucks" Business Insider's headline reads: People hate Dodge Ram's Super Bowl ad, which uses a Martin Luther King speech to sell trucks The New York Times: Martin Luther King Jr. Commercial for Ram Trucks Is Swiftly Criticized ABC News Just Put Up An Article From The Associated Press:  Ram truck ad using MLK speech draws backlash A topic discussing this ad on r/Politics on Reddit shows that some people are very outraged. - I got excited to hear mlk. I was not thrilled it about the selling trucks thing. Terrible idea. - /u/Pm_me_hot_sauce_pics - Tried sending Dodge an e-mail of my disgust but their server must have crashed. I sure hope thousands of others had the same intent. - /u/seness - I wanted to ****ing spit at my TV over this shit. There is no American for whom it would be more offensive to use to sell a product with than Dr. King. - /u/RussianTrollHunter - This just in: corporate America doesn't and never will give a shit about civil rights, truth, or justice. Unless of course that somehow involves you paying them on a generous bi-weekly basis 3/4 of your paycheck, then they'll totally pretend to give a shit about civil society. - /u/Adwokat_Diabla Watch the ad and see the controversy for yourself. Than let us know what you think below. Although this ad is getting all of the attention, it wasn't the only ad RAM showed during the Super Bowl. Here's two more that are not getting any flack.....yet. And the most popular... General Motors on the other hand, didn't run a Super Bowl ad this year for the 2019 Silverado. So, what do you think? Did RAM step in it? Or is this all overblown?
  2. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 2/2/2018 With all the attention the 2019 Silverado has gotten in the past few weeks, we'd understand if Sierra fans are feeling a little left out. Where is the 2019 Sierra and when will we know what it looks like? Good news, very soon! March 1st, to be exact. GMC has begun the process of inviting media to "be among the first to experience the global debut of the next-generation 2019 GMC Sierra". The 2019's Sierra's new badge design and the new Denali logo appear on the invitation sent out (see above). GM-Trucks.com was one of the media outlets that received the invite and will attend the event on March 1st. The event will take place in Detroit and most likely be broadcast live online. We'll have more details of the event as we get closer. Make sure to check back for our inevitable live-chat of the whole event. Sierra fans rejoice, we'll see the all new GMC full-size soon.
  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 2/2/2018 Almost one year to the day after we got our very first look at the 2019 Silverado 1500 and only three weeks since making the truck official, GM is out testing its HD counterpart, the 2020 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD. Our photographer captured the camouflaged prototypes undergoing cold weather testing. He had this to say about the 2020 HD. So what do you think? From what you've seen of the 2019 Silverado 1500, does the 2020 HD models excite you? We'll have more information about the 2020 Silverado and Sierra HD models in the coming months. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/3500HD Spy Photography
  4. So, now that everyone has gotten a look at which trim levels Chevy will offer for 2019 on the Silverado..quick poll!
  5. Thank-you GM-TRUCKS

    You are very welcome! Thanks for the thanks.
  6. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 1/15/18 Earlier today, Fiat-Chrysler introduced their new 2019 RAM 1500 Pickup. We have more on the all new RAM here, but one thing caught our eye and we wanted to talk about it right away. The 2019 RAM's optional 12-inch Uconnect infotainment system. We were all happy that Chevrolet upgraded the interface of the MyLink System for the 2019 Silverado. That said, the brand didn't upgrade the screen or make it any larger than the last generation. To be fair, 8-inches is right in line with the market as it sits today. Ford certainly didn't offer anything larger, so Chevy apparently didn't see the need to go bigger or better with MyLink for the next generation Silverado. That might not have been a great idea. The new (and highly optional) UConnect seems like it was plucked straight from a Tesla. In comparison, 2019 MyLink looks like it was pulled from a Step 2 Playset Manual. Take a look for yourself. 2019 RAM 12-inch UConnect vs 2019 Silverado MyLink 2019 RAM Uconnect 12 inch vs 8.4 inch 2019 RAM Uconnect 12 inch Interface Of course, we've yet to actually use this new 12-inch system but we've been impressed with RAM's smaller 8.4-inch screen and interface for some time. What do you think? Does the 2019 Silverado have enough with an 8-inch MyLink System or does the 2019 RAM blow it away?
  7. I was able to match up all of the released photos with trim level descriptions here.
  8. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 11/13/18 Hot off the press, Chevrolet just dropped a ton of new photos and info that we've all be waiting for.
