General Motors has finally confirmed that the 2014 Silverado 1500 is scheduled to be unveiled on December 13 of this year. The US car maker has also revealed that this will make its first public debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
As part of the preparation for the Silverado 1500’s unveiling, General Motors has already released two teasers of the vehicle. The first teaser was actually released in the earlier parts of October and this move was considered as one of the unusual steps that the car maker has made.
General Motors has released the first teaser by publishing an image which appears as a “spy photo.” The photo shows an image of a pickup truck which is believed to be as the next-generation Silverado. The vehicle on the picture is wearing an optical illusion camouflage and a front bra. Due to these covers, most of the vehicle’s exterior features were concealed. However, the camouflage has failed to hide the vehicle’s squared-off line. Thus, a lot of car experts started to believe that the upcoming version of the Silverado has obtained a few changes in its exterior design.
After making the consumers as well as the experts wondering about the upcoming vehicle’s look, General Motor has once again released another teaser of the Silverado. This time, the image that was published is showing the truck’s projector headlamp. Due to this, more and more buyers were very excited. Unfortunately, they still need to wait a little longer for the vehicle’s official debut and somehow have a chance to view its transformation.
In a statement, General Motors has explained that the bold exterior structure of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado reflects the truck’s enhanced capabilities. This also implies that the upcoming version will most likely be powerful and more compared to the current model since the company’s engineers probably tweaked and implemented a few upgrades on the truck’s drivetrain.
Aside from explaining the rationale behind the vehicle’s exterior design, the statement provided by General Motors has also elaborated the reason why the second teaser was centered on the jewel-like projector headlight of the vehicle. According to GM, the headlight’s appearance reflects the attention that that the car maker is giving on every detail of the vehicle. This also projects the huge amount of efforts and resources that GM has spent on the Silverado’s redesign.
As of the present, the Silverado is marketed as a 2013 model and this would still be available until the new model hits the company’s dealerships.
