Auto Workers Agreement Spills Beans on General Motors' Future Truck
As if a recent labor strike wasn't enough of a problem for General Motors, the agreement between GM and the United Auto Workers union has revealed GM's future pickup truck product plans.
The GMT 900 platform underpinning the current Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full size pickups, as well as GM's full size SUVs, will be replaced in 2012 with the new C3XX architecture.
The 'XX' in C3XX means the final two digit identifier has not been determined yet.
GMT 900 pickups will continue to be produced through 2011 when production will shift to C3XX trucks in 2012 for the 2013 model year at both the Pontiac, Michigan and Flint, Michigan truck plants.
The midsize Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups will continue to be produced through 2011 at their factory in Shreveport, Louisiana.
