DETROIT — The front end of Chevrolet's redesigned Silverado full-size pickup coming next year looks to have a less rectangular shape than the current generation, with headlights that slant toward the centre of the grille.
A test vehicle photographed while being driven on Detroit-area roads recently was heavily camouflaged and disguised to mimic a Ford F-150, though some details were discernible. Similar to today's version, the truck maintains an LED light strip below the headlights.
Canadian Silverado sales were down 3.2 per cent in 2016, when the automaker sold 44,932 units compared with the 46,408 it sold in 2015. But sales rebounded to start 2017, up 18.9 per cent in the first four months during which time the automaker has sold 17,290 units.
Much of the rear of the redesigned Silverado was hidden when spotted near Detroit, but a side exhaust indicates that GM is testing additional engine options, as previously photographed test vehicles all had twin exhausts pointing straight back.
