What is your wish list for the new gen GMT's?
I have high expectations that within the next year or two GM is going to introduce a new line of trucks, and maybe SUV's. I was in Flint for a business trip over the easter holidays and I saw what probably is the new GMT chassis mule on 07-11 sheetmetal because of a more visible, thicker frame and what seemed like a silent engine. I then began to think about what's in store for the new GMTs and what we should expect to see.
I'll start off with engines. with the introduction of the Ecoboost V6, i think that 4.4ish Light duty diesel should be revived. It's a much better alternative to the V6 in which it has cleaner emissions, has a quieter and smoother band of power, more torque at lower RPM's, probably better MPG and range with no need for a large tank. It could blast Ford out of the water. I think GM should design a whole new V8 line too.
I don't know what to expect for exterior design, hopefully a modern brand look with a departure from conservatism, especially with Chevy and their stacked headlights, and maybe they'll try something else with the bumper rather than painted end caps. but i am expecting a Cruze/Equinox/Terrain style interior and i hope to see that beautiful brick/ebony interior color combo, and SOME NEW SEATS! the seats on the NBS are disappointingly cheap. they sag and turn light grey after 5000 miles. I love the durable, sturdy and supportive cloth seats on my wife's Terrain. Those are some great seats and show no sign of age after 15000 miles.
What are you hoping for?

GM needs pay back their bail out money before I'll ever think about buying anything GM again.

I would like for the door panels to not rattle after 20k miles, some down/up hill assist options in Z71 models along with some better wheel wells so you can fit 33's with out lifting the truck. And a roll down rear window like the toyota's have would be pretty sweet too!

I like everyone else's ideas so far! A lot of those things I've been wishing they had to! Especially the roll down rear window, bigger wheel wells, a light under the hood and something bada$$ to compete with the raptor!!!!!
And more diesel power!

I hope the front end doesn't look as "fat", the front of the NNBS is all bumper right now. I'd also like to see them open up the fenders a little, there is almost a foot of clearance at the top of the tire and only an inch or two front and rear. I'd also like to see a real Silverado SS and by that I mean lowered and supercharged like the Lightning's were, I know that's a pipe dream but it sure would be nice!Adam
