Note – While I have not found any local GMC dealers with one, several of the bigger Chevy dealers have a 2014 Silverado Crew cab in transit from the assembly plant in Mexico (near Mexico City). So the new GM truck is built in Mexico. Many were hoping it would made in the USA. In know its Mexico because they have the VIN’s and window stickers available to view.

I have never found one of these trucks and I live here in Michigan. I searched countless dealer inventories and never find a 1500 crew cab with a VIN that starts with a 1, all start with 3 for Mexico.
General Motors says that it will invest $21 million into its Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Michigan, beginning later this year as it begins producing its light-duty 1500-series crew cab pickups at the facility. Currently, GM uses the Flint plant to build heavy-duty variants of its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The plant’s increased capacity comes at the expense of the automaker’s Oshawa, Ontario, truck plant, which closed in May.
“This investment in light-duty crew cab capability enhances Flint Assembly’s manufacturing flexibility and future competitiveness,” said Larry Zahner, GM Manufacturing manager, in a prepared statement released by the automaker. “The plant will now be able to produce both heavy-duty and light-duty trucks for General Motors Company on the same assembly line.”
The plant, which employs 1,767 hourly and salaried workers, currently operates on two shifts. It is unclear how employment levels will differ when the plant adds the extra vehicles.

Talked to my GMC salesman a couple of days ago. He said they’d have the 2014 1500 crew cabs in two weeks! 😉

Are they also handling Chrysler, that are now recalled these days… Several banners and printed materials I have seen distributed including in newspapers and magazine to get the attention of the said new model brands.
