GM Rolls Out New Adverts For Silverado and Sierra - Which One Appeals To You?

Recommended Posts

Boys and Girls they are marketing a lifestyle not a truck. You could insert any truck into all but the OP's and tell the same story. The OP's is selling a tailgate. Wonder what a commercial selling a truck looks like? :smash:

Maybe because the tailgate is the least ugliest part of the truck.

Chrysler has been winning the whole Americana thing lately (what the 3rd ad was desperately trying for). What I don't get was during their centennial Chevy had the "Chevy Runs Deep" campaign that heavily leveraged their history in America. The ads that were on Youtube were lightyears better than what they ran on TV and now their new marketing absolutely sucks. They need to rehire whatever agency did the heritage ads.

They are successful advertising a life style. They managed to convince people to drive trucks and large expensive SUVs as family vehicles. Which happens to be where they make the most money. When a car would fit the needs of most family at less money, with less cost of ownership. Same with a 1500 sq ft home versus 2500 sq ft. Super size me. I’m so lucky I married an Amy brat, they did more with less. The most laughable holiday ad on tv, a Denali pu and SUV. The husband surprised his wife. Much to his surprise she wants the truck. He left with the SUV, poor guy. Over 120K worth of vehicles for presents. And he didn’t get what he wanted.

I really like the Silverado one. I can't get into the new fangled tailgates though with 14 layers of folding mechanisms... I guess that's why I like the Silverado commercial (and the truck)...because it's theme is classic, old school, tried and true (which is what I like). And, the Sierra is going after the consumer that wants "new fangled".

I vote for the GMC Tailgate video.

This would have made a great Super Bowl Commercial :thumbs:

I got a great idea for a commercial, how about we show a few thousand american gm workers getting layoff checks a week before christmas, then cut to Mexico with Mexican workers cashing their 5 dollar an hour checks while the guy with the clipboard boast about being the most dependable Mexican made chevy truck ever.

Maybe they should add with a throaty, old cowboy like voice:

"Thousands of American workers take the fall so that YOU (pointing the finger dramatically into the camera) have to pay less..."

 

so long

The only tailgate ad that would appeal to me is one where it shows how they are going back to a tailgate that is easily removed and put back on in a few seconds just like the old days.

      Now that winter is over, I have noticed that when the radiator fan kicks on there is an unusual light grinding noise. I am curious if anyone has had this issue, or knows if there are readily available fan bearings that I could try to replace those before spending close to $300 on new fans.

      General Motors' new 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo diesel engine is arriving later this year. Over the weekend GM-Trucks.com received confirmation of the new engine's specifications when in the 2019 and 2020 Silverado. 
       
      Elizabeth Winter, Assistant Manager, GM Product and Brand Communications told us:
      I can confirm that the all-new, Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel will deliver an SAE-certified 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, more than any other light-duty, full-size truck diesel available. Dealers and customers can place orders for the efficient, refined diesel and the first customer deliveries begin this summer. We will share more information, including towing capacity and efficiency, in the near future. It is priced identically to the 6.2L V-8 as a $2,495 premium over a 5.3L V-8 model (or $3,890 over a 2.7L Turbo model) making the 3.0L Duramax the most affordable light-duty diesel engine on the market.
       
      GM has said previously that the Silverado's new 3.0-turbo diesel engine have start/stop technology and will be paired with a 10-speed transmission. By comparison, Ford's Power Stroke diesel, arriving in May, offers 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2019 Ram has not yet received its updated diesel engine. The 2018 diesel engine offerings specs were 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.
       
      We will bring you more information as it is made available.

      See a lot of questions asked about this and not a lot of set info on the upgrade.  Hope this helps even anyone trying to set it up.
       
      **READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND WATCH ALL VIDEOS PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING PURCHASING OR INSTALLATION**
       
      Apple CarPlay / Android Auto functionality is not supported in any 2014-2015 (Many 2016) Silverado/Sierra’s. This is due to neither application being available from Google or Apple when these vehicles being built, therefore not an available option during these model years. The following instructions are designed to simplify the process as much as possible.
       
      Three things are required for this upgrade (ONE) Radio Module, (ONE) HMI Module, and (ONE) USB Hub 2016+.
       
      Search around for the modules, they are available for purchase from many different locations. EBay, totaled vehicles, junkyards, or other various websites to find them. AGAIN, if the part numbers are not listed below DO NOT purchase them.
       
       It is highly encouraged to not try and cut corners with purchasing part numbers of modules not listed as they cannot be flashed to work properly.
       
      **DISCONNECT THE BATTERY PRIOR TO INSTALLING FRESHLY UPDATED MODULES**
       
      TOOLS REQUIRED:
      Trim Removal tool
      10 mm Socket
      7 mm Socket
       
      PARTS REQUIRED
      USB HUB P/N 13519224 (BLACK) P/N 13509943 (WHITE)

      Once acquiring the parts you can now send them to be flashed. These modules will be flashed to your VIN and will then be plug and play. Copy the link and follow the prompts.  
       
      http://www.whiteautoandmedia.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=98&category_id=44&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=54
       
      If you have followed all the directions up and to this point, select yes for hardware match. You can chose if you would like the maps updated on your NAV if you so choose. You will be emailed your order number from WAMS, this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. You will be required to ship your parts either FedEx or UPS, they will not accept packages from USPS. You will need to write your order number on the box to ensure your order is properly handled. Turn around is approximately one week from shipment to return. ONLY ship your (ONE) Radio Module and (ONE) HMI Module. Maintain your USB Hub.
       
      Once you have received your parts from WAMS you can begin installation. Disconnect your battery prior to installation.
       
      To install the radio module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2MYuuyqLrs. For the purpose of this install start the video at 1:00. Stop the video at 2:04, the radio module is visible with a green connector on the far left. Simply begin disconnecting all of the connectors plugged into the module, once all are removed you can slide the module out of the dash. It is retained only by the tension of the cables plugged into it. Replace with your new module, you can now continue the video and finish putting the dash back together. Stop the video at 4:10.
       
      To install the HMI Module watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFe2gwlOsD4. Stop the video at 2:00. The module being described behind the crossbar is what you are replacing. Remove all connectors, the module is retained with a plastic clip on top. Installing the module along with the glove box, is self explanatory.
       
      Take note of the plastic tabs on the sides of the USB Hub you are preparing to install. Those tabs can be depressed with a dental pick and gradually removed out of place. Once removed, disconnect the harness and reconnect. Installation is now complete. You can now reconnect your battery and start your vehicle. Initial start up might take a few seconds to initialize, and temperature defaulting to 32 degrees is normal. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay require hardwire connection, so to test functionality it needs to be connected to the newly installed USB hub.    
       
      MVI Inc (https://www.gm-navigation.com/) offers kits and other customization options if the above is not something you feel comfortable acquiring on your own.
       
      Hope this helps, should be pretty cut and dry. There might be other methods, but this was the cheapest I discovered. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
