GM To Move Current Truck Production To Oshawa

  GM To Move Current Truck Production To Oshawa General Motors has announced it is shifting production of its current full-size pickups to Oshawa while it tools up its Michigan and Indiana plants to build next-generation versions of the popular trucks. Automotive News reports that GM will ship partly-assembled versions of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and 2018 GMC Sierra trucks from Fort Wayne, Indiana, where 500 newly hired workers will finish building and paint them. It's good news for an Oshawa factory whose future was in doubt. According to GM Canada, it currently builds the Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Equinox. The manufacturer recently refocused Equinox production to Mexico and the full-size XTS sedan competes in a category losing steam in the face of the growing popularity of upscale SUVs and crossovers. This wouldn't be the first time GM has built two generations of one model at the same time. It did so most recently when the recently redesigned Equinox launched, and sent outgoing-generation models to Ingersoll for finishing touches. And Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will build its current 2018 Ram 1500 alongside a brand new version when the redesigned truck debuts next year. GM expects to the Oshawa plant to turn out about 60,000 trucks a year, but the company hasn't committed to a fixed timeline for Oshawa truck production. Spokesperson Jennifer Wright told Automotive News that "the length of the program in Oshawa will be dependent on market demand.

Last year, a clever Ford dealership had an idea to recreate a modern version of the infamous SVT F-150 Lightning pickup. Ford hasn’t offered such a muscle truck since 2004, but the modern take – complete with badges, side-exit exhaust, and no less than 650 horsepower – was something of a phenomenon. Now, a Chevrolet dealer is taking the retro theme to the next level, but instead of packing serious power, the custom two-tone exterior packs all kinds of nostalgia. Say hello to the Chevrolet Silverado Big 10.

The dealership is Blake Greenfield Chevrolet in Wells, Minnesota, and it started last December with the green and white pickup pictured at the top of the page. Anyone old enough to remember telephones with rotary dials should recognize this look – it was the epitome of high-end Chevy and GMC pickups through the 1970s and 1980s, back when fully loaded meant power door locks and a radio that could receive FM stations as well as AM. Two-tone schemes came in a variety of flavors including lower trim and even white roofs, though the center-strip was definitely the most popular. The look is spot-on, right down to the white wagon wheels, thick side pinstripe, and period correct Cheyenne badges.

That first truck must’ve generated all kinds of hype, because the dealership has thus far made at least three more models; a black / white single cab truck, a light blue / dark blue combo that was actually bought by someone sight-unseen from New York, and the ever-popular red/white two tone. According to the above Facebook post from the dealer, the cost for the “Big 10 Package” amounts to $5,995 which doesn’t actually sound that bad considering the paint work involved to make it all happen.

Now, can we get one with a white roof and a headlight dimmer switch mounted on the floor?

Chevrolet has revealed its redesigned 2019 Silverado full-size pickup truck will offer a four-cylinder engine as the standard powerplant in select trims. The 2.7L turbocharged motor will be the standard power source in LT and RST trims, displacing a 4.3L V6 that will remain as the base engine in lower-volume variants.With 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque, the new four-pot handily eclipses the 4.3L's power output, which is rated at 285 hp and 305 lb-ft. Chevrolet says the new engine is "expected" to offer greater fuel efficiency and a better power-to-weight ratio than the V6.
