Hi everyone! I wanted to announce that we've opened up an all new forum section to talk about the future 2018 Silverado and Sierra developed on the new T1XX platform. 

 

Check out the new T1XX Platform Discussion Forum Here

 

We are excited to open more forums dedicated to the all new full size platform in the near future. :cheers:

6.2 and a better looking exterior on silverado - nothing that resembles the 2016 front end

7.0 with 8 or 10 speed, led lighting throughout, rear hvac vents, rear heated seats, air suspension as an option, front HD coil spring suspension. Just some ideas...

Great idea!  Even though we know next to nothing about the 2017 HD revisions, it's never too early to start discussing what's coming.

 

BTW- might be a good idea to open a 'Medium Duty' sub-forum in the Commercial Vehicles forum for the Isuzu LCF's and Navistar joint-venture trucks.

I'll start by saying I bet these will be 2019 MY at the earliest. We haven't seen so much as a hint of a test vehicle out there. If these were going to be 2018 MY they would be shown at the end of this year most likely and on the lots in Q1-Q2 time frame of 2017 which is a year from now.

 

Curious to see the design direction and options. Maybe some of the luxury car whiners will be made happy with the options, hope they don't make them too car like in design both inside and out; I really liked the 14-15 design a solid throw back.

A new discussion has started up, on the possibility of the 4.5 diesel coming of the shelf , to be used in the future Silverado / Sierra 1500 pickup trucks .         Found it at GMauthority .com and Trucktrend .com

You say no aluminum trucks? So what do you think GM is going to do with the aluminum contract it has with Alcola?

The media reports that keep popping up show GM using a combination of materials to reduce weight or improve structure.
