    GM Delays MCE Silverado & More; New BOF SUVs, Hummer Still On Time

    The Detroit Free Press
    Marcy 31, 2020



    General Motors Co. directed suppliers to stop preparations for mid-cycle updates of trucks, SUVs and sports cars as the automaker delays them until the 2021 calendar year because of the pandemic disruption, according to a note obtained by The Detroit News.

    GM has delayed the planned mid-cycle refresh of the Chevrolet Silverado and other vehicles as it attempts to conserve cash during the downturn caused by COVID-19.

    "The interruption this causes has rippled through not only the industry, but both supply and demand volumes," said Jeff Schuster, president of global vehicle forecasting at LMC Automotive. "It will absolutely impact product programs and future investments."

    GM is urging its suppliers to stop work on tooling and parts manufacturing ahead of the planned mid-cycle refresh of the light-duty Chevrolet Silverado, its top-selling vehicle, and GMC Sierra trucks, according to the note to suppliers which was confirmed by GM. The direction also affects the GMC Terrain SUV as well as Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse SUVs, Bolt electric car and Camaro sports car. A future variant of the Chevrolet Corvette that was not slotted for 2020 also will be delayed.

    "All our development teams around the globe are looking for opportunities to conserve resources by adjusting program timing and deferring spending," GM said in a statement.

    Near-term programs, however, will see little to no impact, the company added. That includes its full-size SUVs and its electric-vehicle portfolio with the larger Bolt EUV, GMC Hummer truck, Cadillac Lyriq SUV, self-driving Cruise Origin shuttle and Ultium battery program.

    So hard to think about the future when you see what people are going through day after day.

    Be safe everyone!

    I also find it very annoying that politicians haven't seemed to quit begging for campaign donations during these trying times. "Your life may be collapsing but I sure could use some more money right now."

    No surprise, the equivalent is happening in every company across the world. Well, except for China where they've solved for the virus via statistic manipulation.

    How do you know its twin engined? There are no details of its configuration yet. And the spend on that is small as its in the concept development stage, not in detail design. The Navy's focus is in deploying the F-35C in a CVW in 2021 and then the MQ-25 drone tanker. The airforce 6th gen fighter and B-21 bomber are further along.

    Expect to see deep cuts in the defense budget in the next few years due to the hit of the pandemic on government spending and revenue. The numbers of B-21s will probably be cut from 100. Continuing with the Minuteman III ICBM replacement and the Colombia class SSBN will be unaffordable, one of these will die. Like in the 1930s we could be looking at have a nationalistic rising military power (China) facing a declining "empire" (USA); that never ends well...

    Does that mean that there is a next generation Camaro? Or is this referring to the 2022 Camaro (Terrain, Nox etc)? But they have all had their MCEs design and tools for 2021 done/ purchased already (production probably starts in two months) so they won't do a MCE in 2022....then surely it must refer to the next generation?

    Well you can't delay or slowdown unnecessary defense spending that is for sure!

    This sucks, I was hoping to get a refreshed truck at the end of this year. Guess I'll have to wait until next year?

    "We are at war!" At least that's what my states Governor said we talking about the Covid.

    Which make me think we NEED the F18 replacement as soon as possible to attack the Covid and win!.

    What good is a MCE'd Silverado gonna do on the battlefield besides dazzle the enemy and impress them with its soft touch dashboard?

    Glad the Full Size SUV's are on track, they important for the well being of GM. Not sure how many will be bought, but there are always diehard brand loyalists who want the new stuff and will pay full boat for it.

    GM is counting on that. John McElroy of Autoline said Arlington Assembly, the plant that builds the company's full size BOF SUVs, "is the most profitable assembly plant in the world, not just for GM, for anybody".
