General Motors has big plans for its full- and midsize pickups on the horizon. Automotive News reports GM dealers were told more Chevrolet Colorados and Silverados would be coming this year to help with supply constraints still faced by some dealers nationwide.
Chevrolet U.S. Vice President Brian Sweeney confirmed both Chevrolet pickups would see increased numbers, but did not provide details as to how the automaker will boost production. Previously, it was reported GM will outsource full-size van production to make room for more pickup trucks, but it has not been confirmed at this time.
Currently, the plants in Michigan and Missouri, which assemble the Silverado and Colorado, are running at full capacity to churn out the pickup trucks, meaning it will be difficult to squeeze anything additional out of the plants. Not a bad problem to have, but we’re sure the capacity fix will be flexible in case fuel prices decide to balloon once again.
