What everyone has been waiting for is finally close to being done. The Chevrolet Silverado is getting a face lift! There has not been much released about what changes are going to be made to the truck, but I am sure it will substantial!
Four of the GM Truck plants will go idle in 2012 to re-tool for the next generation silverado. Fort Wayne will shut down for a total of nine weeks through the months of January to October, Flint will stop production for six weeks from June to November, and the Arlington plant will shut down for Five weeks from June to December. The other truck plant in Mexico will also shut down for a certain period of time, but it has yet to be released.
GM has been trying to generate a surplus to make-up for the future down time. Time will tell what GM has in store for us, but I think it will be quite exciting!
