    First Look at Next Generation Silverado

    Here's your first chance to see the next generation Silverado with some footage caught during rigorous testing of towing a weighted trailer near the General Motors proving grounds in Yuma, Arizona. What would you most want to see in the next generation Silverado? — at Yuma, Arizona.

    That got my attention. I agree - there is not all that much to see in the video, but at least they're working hard on the next generation.

    I wonder how much they're towing in the bed of that trailer? Any guesses? 2500 lbs total maybe trailer and all?

    looks pretty ugly....
    as if that whole front end (all molded plastic, made in china) would completelybreak apart if you rode low over a parking curb...

    but its ok, a new one is only $2,500.....

    Lets also install a back up cam (made in mexico) because we designed it withhuge blind spots...

    OH, and then lets charge $50,000.00 for the whole thing........
    makes me sick dude

    i think its sad they got a bailout lol

    most people make 30K a year and this truck is over 50K depending on the engine options. Ive seen dealer stickers of over $70,000.

    and most of it is chineeze plastic, and chineeze programmed controll software.... :(

    i think people need to lighten up, things change all the time and we can't go backwards. also, i think it's too hard to tell in this stage, it looks a bit beefier on the front end, like the camaro got a beefier front end and it looks totally different than the last generation of camaro. i think the silverado is going to have to change to fit these trends as well.

    That's a 2014 043 LTZ. '13 will look just like '12. The '14 has a few nice surprises you can't see in this footage.

    Will the "few nice surprises" be an affordable price, with a washer and dryer?

    oh no, wait... thats a house... a home is as much as a pickup......

    Depending on the neighborhood. Wish I could have gotten my house for what I paid for my truck.

    Average income in the US is like $45k actually, that includes the 18 year old who's just out of high school, 24 year old recent college grads and 50 year old masters and professionals. More than enough people earn enough to buy all that GM can make ... they're just over leveraged to the hilt, have to make priorities. I'm in the same boat, family and other issues keep me from jumping in and buying a new vehicle this year (well, right now anyhow).

    Ok, enough of the Hatorade, this page has been viewed 7,500 times in less than a week, what's everyone else think?

    I have no interest in a new truck. I very specifically bought a used NBS so that I'd get something I could upgrade into the modern age (backup cam, touch-screenaudio with bluetooth and navigation) ... without the annoying features that I loathe on the NNBS -- namely TPMS and AFM. When it's finally time for my transmission to be redone I'll do some research about getting a non-AFM 6spd tranny (if that's even possible) and some vette servos.

    Basically, if I have it my way, the truck in my signature is the truck I'll own when I die...

    ... one day I will have a garage big enough for me to do some cool projects again. Right now I don't have that much space! My man cave is just big enough for tools, yard gear, bikes, cars and a couple of stools where I can sit and dream about having a bigger garage/man cave.

    Your man cave is bigger than mine, as I'm in an apartment with no man cave of my own. For the last year I have basically driven ~50 miles (each way) in order to use dad's shop and garage ... which is where my tools are parked. I also do most of my work out in the open, as my truck is too long to fit in the garage unless I take up both bays. I barely squeek in under the 7' door, too. :)

    If I get the home that I've currently got under contract then I'll have a 2-car garage of my own AND an external mower shed with power. I'm sooo looking forward to that. I wish the seller's bank would hurry up and decide. (It's a short sale, so the seller's bank has some say...)

    i kinda like the look of it, i can't say that i know anything of the total vehicle package with just this little bit of information though. will be waiting to learn more and see what chev has in store for us.

    That video sucked. I guess we'll have to wait to see more. Then I'll throw in my .0159 (after taxes, that is what my opinion is worth).

    Video doesn't give much detail, but I for one will be glad when trucks go back to being trucks, rather than large luxury vehicles. Anyone priced an LTZ anything recently? For the difference I don't think you could fit all the $$s into the bed of the truck.

    Guess it's time to go pick up another load of hay...

    I am a die hard GM fan and with the exception of 2 vehicles they are all I have ever bought. With that said I disliked the look of the "cat eye" chevy's that I waited until the NNBs came out then bought a 2009 model. I have to agree with what several people have stated on here which is; 1) I do not like that they received a bailout as I am a small business owner and I have to shoulder the responsibilities of my decisions and not ask anyone for a handout. 2) the prices of vehicles these days had just become ridiculous, but that is human greed for you. As far as the new truck goes I still don't have enough info to form an opinion so I will wait and see the official model and then test drive before I decide if I will get a Silverado or Sierra.
