    There is some truth to that...........

    In 1999 I bought the brand-new GMT800; it was a nice truck, but loads of problems, I should have bought the 1999 GMT400 Classic.

    In 2003 I bought the out-going F-150; trouble-free and an absolute deal.

    So far so good on my 2018 Sierra, and I'm hearing of lots of problems with the 2019's, go-figure..............
    I had a 2003 F150 supercrew, one of my favorite trucks, the darn thing is still in the family going strong with well over 200k on it now. Never had any major issues. It sure went to he!! when the 2004's came out with the 3V 5.4's!

    First year trucks are dicey at best. Lots of troubles, we seen it on the fleet all the time.

    I'm showing 2021, as a 2022 model year, but FCA has been pretty consistent about delaying and pushing programs back, so don't hold your breath (and I don't have any insight to indicate it is or isn't RWD).

    Believe it will be 2022 based on the rumors I have seen.

    IMHO it should be 2021 but think GM is too busy with the 2021 SUV's to do it then.

    Hopefully the new Interior will be more like the Ford and RAM where the main updates were Display size and upgraded materials.

    I like the overall layout of the current GM dash, it absolutely needs a larger display and better materials and needs to add features like Ford and RAM do with displaying what gear the transmission is in (very important for those who Tow/Haul heavy loads).

    The 10 Speed needs to become standard on all trims above WT and the WT should get the 8-speed with the 4.3L as it is in the Express/Savana.

    3.0 TD needs to be offered on Trail Boss along with Forward Camera Views and more Axle Ratio choices.

    Chevy needs a ZR2 for Silverado and Elevation and AT4 need more Off-Road Tech and ZR2 style suspension upgrades and all Off Road trims need Electronic Locking Axles.

    AT4 should add a "Raptor/TRX" Trim level just to name a few items

    What are you looking for?

    Re: Silverado mid cycle enhancement

    If I were buying a new truck, I would try to buy one mid-cycle or towards the end, just before GM does a big revamp on the powertrain or electrical system. Primarily so that it should have the least problems from new bits being debugged.

    I'd rather have a truck that works and doesn't need to go back to the dealer for a bunch of recalls or problems as often, vs having a lot of new bits that generally have a bunch of problems getting them working right.

    Re: Silverado mid cycle enhancement

    IMHO waiting for the MCE is usually good as often small issues are addressed during a MCE as they NEED to retool anyways and if the OP plans on running it for 20 years again a post MCE should be a better bet
    but if the MCE makes a truck he doesn't like the PRE MCE often are ON SALE
    so unless HE NEEDS a new truck I would wait the year or so to see the MCE and what it offers and it is not like he does not have patience and after the first 20 years what is one more?

    Yes, they are hard to find. Probably less than 5%. When I found my '17 F150, equipped about 99% the way I wanted one, and a great price, I grabbed it. Even though it was 135 miles from home in another state.

    Re: Silverado mid cycle enhancement

    Well whatever you do don't get a current T-class truck with a slider rear window unless you like leaks and dealers using silicone to seal the back window on you. Yes i said dealers are fixing this problem per gm tsb by stuffing as much clear silicone around the back window frame as possible. To anyone buying or thinking of buying a gm truck right now buy the non slider window!!!

    Neither of mine leak and they both have the sliding rear window. It’s a problem, but the majority of respondents to the poll on GM-trucks also claim to be leak free.

    As i have said before i don't mind that there is a problem as they all have them, but if i spent over 50 grand i would mind that they willingly using incompetent oil change techs to hack fix with essentially tape and glue! Worse are now people who drive a lot seeing this issue pop up after 50k+ in mileage, and of course gm doesn't feel they are responsible to fix it.

    Do you think that the factory people are more competent than the dealer techs? And what exactly do you expect GM to fix on a 50k+ mileage vehicle? It's out of warranty. Stuff breaks.

    I've been following it quite a bit on FB and other sites, the issue isn't an (initial) assembly error, it is a poor-design, early failure error.

    So now the 50K mile maintenance package include a new back window assembly, headliner and carpet? Or just don't own one out of bumper-to-bumper?

    "Spark Plugs last 100K miles, but you'll probably need a back window, headliner and carpet before 60K." Said the salesmen.

    Here are some of my request for MCE
    1. Diesel for Trail Boss
    2. A ZR2
    3. A bigger dell monitor inside (Like F150)
    4. New Interior Design including new electronic architecture to cover more features such as supercruise
    5. Supercharger for those living in high elevation for 5.3 and 6.2
    6. Power boost for 2500 in the Duramax V8 to push past 1300 torque and perhaps 600 HP
    7. This front end with these lights design
