GM Might Launch Next-gen Silverado and Sierra by 2012

General Motors is believed to be preparing for the launch of the next generation of its Silverado and Sierra in the US by 2012 despite its surplus supplies of pickups.

These beliefs have been subjected to confirmation but these efforts failed since there are no clear signs that GM is focusing on upgrading its existing models of Silverado and Sierra leaving new car finders who are interested in buying any of these models on its upgraded version with no choice but to wait.

The circulating beliefs and assumptions that GM would be upgrading these pickups was triggered by the observations that these models needs subsequent upgrades since it has been a long time when GM released new versions of the Silverado and the Sierra.

In the midst of uncertainty, the existing rumors about the launch of next generation Silverado and Sierra were somehow confirmed by a statement from Don Johnson. Johnson is the current head of General Motors' sales in the US. In a statement, Johnson was quoted saying "We have some scheduled plant downtime in 2012 as we convert to the next generation of our pickups." (Kleis 2011)With this statement, it is quite clear that the launch is possible.

As a result, this current development is considered as GM's direct response to the inability of the company and its dealerships to sell the current version of the Silverado and the Sierra to car finders either on cash basis or through the available auto financing deals offered by lenders.

However, the statement made by Johnson was recently contradicted by some representatives from General Motors. According to them, the company's plan of launching the upcoming versions of these trucks is not possible until 2013. With this, it is also impossible for these vehicles to go on sale on the same year, hinting that they would probably sell these by 2014.

Due to this, there is an existing confusion as to whether these next-generation trucks would be available by 2012, 2013 or 2014. This confusion was triggered by statements provided by GM executives and would eventually be contradicted by the others. With this situation, buyers have no choice but to wait for the concrete statement from GM.
