With tough competition from competing models, GM can't afford the Silverado to not be the most popular truck on the road. And what better way to accomplish that than by taking an already impressive truck and making it even better? In a recent interaction with The Detroit News, the Silverado Executive Chief Engineer didn't reveal much detail on the updates, but gave us a glimpse into the new Chevrolet Silverado updates for 2015. Most important for the 2015 truck is improved fuel economy. A rumored eight-speed transmission, or one that uses more than the current six gears, would provide better fuel efficiency. Coupled with start-stop technology and a drastic weight loss through the use of aluminum and composite materials, the 2015 Chevy Silverado could see fuel economy improvements of up to 20%. In addition to more miles per tank, the new Silverado is also expected to feature new technology and appearance enhancements.
“You’ll see these kinds of technologies over the next few years, a whole array of neat, new technologies, some focused on fuel economy, some focused on capability,” Luke, GM's Silverado Executive Chief Engineer, said to The Detroit News.
