Reuss addressed the launch of the next-generation full-size GM pickup trucks during the recent GM Investor presentation. The launch of the next-gen vehicles follows the reveal of the fully-refreshed Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 late for the 2022 model year. The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 broke cover earlier in September, while the fully refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is expected to debut October 21st.
The launch of the next-gen full-size GM pickup trucks in 2025 will introduce a wealth of changes and updates, including new powertrains. Additionally, the next-gen trucks will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent. By comparison, the recent 2022-model-year refresh reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 5.8 percent, while the next-gen models slated for 2025 will cut emissions a further 4.7 percent.
As GM Authority covered previously, General Motors is aiming to achieve carbon neutrality, announcing that it will source 100 percent of the electricity used to power its U.S. operations from renewable sources by 2025, five years earlier than previously announced.
Further cuts to carbon emissions will lead General Motors to carbon neutrality in its global products and operations by 2040, while the automaker says it will eliminate tailpipe emissions from new light-duty vehicles by 2035. GM recently announced that it will be the first to use Nucor’s Econiq net-zero steel for future GM vehicle production.
As a reminder, the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 introduces a wealth of changes and updates over the preceding 2021 model year and pre-refresh 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited. These include new styling with a revised front fascia, as well as a completely overhauled cabin space stuffed with the latest technology features, plus GM’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system.
