Then, GM will turn its attention to launching overhauls of what could easily be considered its two most important products, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups. The light-duty pickups will bow in the second half of 2018, concluding a relatively short third generation, followed by their heavy-duty counterparts about a year later.
Meanwhile, GM also is on the verge of starting nationwide sales of the Chevy Bolt EV, after a slow rollout that initially focused on California and other electric-car-friendly states. And we're getting closer to an official unveiling of the next Chevy Corvette, after years of rumors and spy photos suggesting that the car is shifting to the sort of midengine architecture long used by Ferrari and Lamborghini and dreamed about by fans.
The only GM brand not awash in new products is Cadillac, which has a lot on the drawing board but nothing much hitting showrooms until mid-2018. That's when the first of three crossovers under development will finally arrive and Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen's vision for revitalizing the storied marque will begin to take shape.
