What Edmunds.com Says: With GM quickly falling behind its competitors in the full-size truck segment, look for GM to pull out all the stops to assure that this Silverado has everything it needs to compete.

What We Know: Major changes will be necessary on this stalwart design in order to keep it competitive against its longtime rival, the F-150, in addition to relative newcomers such as the Nissan Titan and next-generation Toyota Tundra. When the new Silverado appears, probably in 2007, it will feature a far more elegant cabin than the current model along with a new GMT-900 platform. A more powerful range of engines is a certainty, but efficiency is also likely to play a major role as the Silverado may very well become the biggest user of GM's Displacement on Demand technology. Look for safety to play a prominent role as well with more extensive airbag protection and wider availability of StabiliTrak.

What Edmunds.com Says: The Sierra may finally take on a personality of its own as GM looks for ways to differentiate GMC from its Chevrolet twin.

What We Know: With GM's profits and market share decreasing steadily each month, the company cannot afford not to make serious changes on a cornerstone vehicle such as this. When the next generation of the Sierra appears, in 2007 as a 2008 model, it will undoubtedly look remarkably different than the current, somewhat outdated version. An exaggerated chrome grille will dominate the new face, among other updates to the exterior which will include a new cabin. New sheet metal will be used under the surface as well, and the interior will be more sophisticated than anything seen before on this truck, as GM attempts to compete more actively with Ford. It's also rumored that the upcoming Sierra could also feature a new engine with the fuel-conscious Displacement on Demand feature. A hybrid version will almost definitely be available as well. StabiliTrak and OnStar will at least be options, if not standard features at that point, as GM hopes to gain an edge over its rivals through the conspicuous use of modern safety technology. Expect to see a growing distinction between GMC and Chevy trucks in the coming years, as upcoming versions of the Silverado and Sierra will share fewer and fewer features.

No surprises here. Why couldn't they do something more like the Cheyenne concept of a few years back?

Personally, I always hated the Cheyenne concept -- too aero/round for a truck. Domestic full-size pickups should be 'butch' IMO. ;-)

Well, from the Tahoe pics and focus group Avalanche pics we have seen, I have high expectations for this truck. Plus how high the bar has been raised in the last few years by the competion, so they need it to be good. Plus the new Toyota is a major threat. So it looks like 2007 is going to be a great year for truck lovers with the new Expedition on the way as well.

Well, if any vehicles have been played up (if anything, over-played) it's the new GM trucks and SUV's...so these better be good...from what we can tell the exterior should be nice, but the interior is the biggest determining factor...
