78 C10 | 91 Camaro | 11 Equinox | 15 Silverado
Now that's what I'm talk in' about!
Looks like a beast! I really hope GM gains some perception headway on the F series. GM needs to bring it every year with their trucks. Ford won't lay down. GM needs to make sure their marketing is right.
Looks like a perfect addition to my current HD3500 dually.
2014 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT RS
- Crystal Red Tintcoat
2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT
- 6.2 liter ecotec 3 V8 / 420hp / 460 ft of torque
- Crew Cab - Standard Bed
- BfGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2
Rear fenders look to have the same shape as the '73-'91 Duallys. And that's a good thing.
let there be a god and the 2500 / 3500 HD's get power extending and folding trailering mirrors

Thanks God! Finally, there are two handles on the front pillars.
There are plenty of prototype Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 heavy duty pickups doing durability testing in and around General Motors Milford Proving Grounds outside Detroit. From what our spy shooters tell us — which we suspected — much of the design language from the 2014 Silverado will migrate into the HD trucks; however, the photos here indicate there may be something unique about the grille and front-end look. Here's what our spies tell us.
"It appears that the Silverado HD will gain the impression of greater brawn by ditching the 1500's split center bar in favor of a thicker, solid chrome bar. The result is greater visual weight and a beefier countenance. Slim horizontal slats (two above and three below) sandwich the thick horizontal grille bar, adding some further substance to the Silverado HD's grille treatment."
The big mystery isn't what these trucks are going to look like so much as what will be under the hood of them. I have heard a number of rumors, so here goes:
I think it is a safe bet that the current LML Duramax will continue until 2016. There are rumors of a new Duramax coming, and revised diesel emission regulations are supposed to go into effect in 2016, so it seems to me that any changes would likely come that year.
There are a number of rumors surrounding gas engines. Some say the iron block L96 6.0L will continue. While this engine seems to be at a sight disadvantage to the Ram 's Hemi and the Super Duty's orphan 6.2L 'Boss', road tests and seat-of-the-pants prove it is competitive. Also consider the L96 is being sold in substantial numbers to Isuzu and Freightliner for service in commercial trucks. Another rumor is the upcoming 1500's aluminum block Gen. 5 DI 6.2L will appear under the 2015HD's hood. Could happen, but GM has not to date installed an aluminum block in any HD pickup. Sure, there's a first time for anything......
Then, there are the interesting gas engine rumors. I don't consider any of these credible at the moment, but that may change as time goes on. One that comes up from time to time is a V-10. V-10 prototypes of the Gen. 3 LS were tested as a potential 7.4L replacement many years ago. Another one that comes up is a 'stroker' LS of around 6.6L using the 6.0L's bore with a long stroke crank. Such an engine might have good torque and emissions characteristics, along with plenty of space between the cylinders for good cooling. There has also been talk of a 7.0L V-8.
Anyone heard anything else?
Purely speculation: a 6.2L iron block gas with an 8-speed in CY 2014.
