PostSubject: GM Plant Gears Up for 2015 HDs   January 1st 2014, 3:17 pm



Quote :
In order to make the necessary upgrades to its aging Flint Assembly plant in Michigan, which will produce the 2015 Chevy Silverado Heavy Duty and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks, GM officials announced the plant will use downtime after holiday break to replace and remove equipment. This is likely to require the temporary layoff of some line employees.

According to The Flint Journal, the plant will get a first-stage improvement worth $328 million, as well as a second-stage $600 million investment to install a state-of-the-art paint and body shop, along with other improvements.

Among the most significant upgrades to the new Chevy and GMC 2500 and 3500 will be new hood and exterior design cues, all-new interiors and technologies (similar to the light-duty trucks), and vastly improved bed capability and available features. The Flint plant is GM's oldest continuing production line, and the 2015 HD trucks that roll off that line at the end of January will likely start showing up in dealerships early in the first quarter of 2014.

We'll have our first shot at getting behind the wheel of the big trucks near the end of January and will let you know how they look, drive and tow. And you can expect a head-to-head challenge in the late summer or early fall.

Announcement seems late in the game to be right out or less than a month out. Will be interesting to see them in person. As the doctored computer photos simply don't usually represent the actual product in an exacting manor.

Define real. Being put through a treasure trove of computer graphic programs, air brushed eight ways till Sunday changing lighting and sheen, removes or skews the actual naked eye perception of the real thing IMHO. GM has a history of graphically altering their marketing photos to somehow make them look like a woman wearing way too much make up. :/

El' Natural is preferred by some.
