    2013 GMC Sierra 1500

    http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2010/02...erra-1500.html



    We're told by sources that the Sierra will look significantly more different from the Chevrolet Silverado than it does today. The new Sierra features the new 3-bar grille that we've seen in spy shots of the 2011 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickups -- which officially debut next month at the NTEA Work Truck Show in St. Louis -- and styling cues from the blocky "urban-industrial' GMC Granite small people-mover concept that debuted at the Detroit auto show last month. A sleeker exterior is expected to contribute to improved gas mileage. GM is also studying whether automatically opening and closing the grille inlets of its full-size pickups could improve aerodynamics and mileage.

    Powertrain improvements are expected to include wide use of direct injection across the Sierra's engine lineup including, we're told, a (maybe 7.0-liter?) new large-displacement V-8 gas engine. GM's next-generation full-size hybrid technology will also arrive by 2013, with more-efficient, stronger electric motors and batteries, giving the gas-electric trucks up to 50% better towing capacity.

    Don't like how the wheels stick out from the fenders.

    Very cool rendering, it's too bad we'll never get a front bumper with that kind of detail. I was kind of hoping that GM would split their truck line like Ford does, and have a really big 2500 and 3500, and a more garage-friendly 1500. With the Colorado/Canyon languishing, it would be nice to have a high-mileage light-duty Silverado option that wouldn't compromise the 2500s and 3500s. With the 2011 HDs getting a lot of new goodies, I doubt we'll see anything of the sort.

    Hmmm doesnt the Granite have that type of front end as well? New Terrain has the three bar grill as well.

    Overall, love it!

    Time will tell, but I can't wait to see it when it comes out! GMC has always had the better looking truck IMO.

    Love the Granite concept and love the styling of this. I'm curious to see what the next Silverado will look like too because they said that will have much more aggressive Chevy styling.

    The only detail I don't like on it is the previous Chevy pickup hood design (at the side) that drapes over the fender. This type of design will age quickly.

    yuck...GM...give your head a shake. This is just b*tt f^&*k ugly. A truck should be a truck, ,not sum yuppie urban cowboy cross-over.

    I am glad GM didn't screw the pooch with the new 2011 HD's. That truck is a truck, this is just a screwed up idea. Think GM just handed Ford and Dodge the 1500 market.

    Relax. This is a rendering commissioned by pickuptrucks.com as a "what if?".

    Ah, well thats not what the accompanying text says in the article. My assessment still stands...its still very very ugly and non-functional as a truck. The problem is these 'renderings' somehow sometimes make it into the real thing, no matter the source.

    Obviously, this artist does not understand the demographic of truck buyers. The are not people who buy cross-overs, of any brand.

    Please, tell me how that rendering would make a truck non-functional?

    The article states:
    Because GM has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars to redesign its full-size pickups, we asked renowned automotive illustrator Mark Stehrenberger to take a stab at what these trucks could look like when they debut around 2013.
    Yet you're convinced that the 2013 Sierra will look just like the rendering?

    I wouldn't mind some details on the new big cube engne. Could we be getting a 427ci direct injected V8? I'm giddy just thinking about it.
