Acadia: A freshening for the 2020 model year brought the crossover into the fold of the brand's new design language, improved the interior and added a 10-speed automatic transmission. After falling 20 percent last year, sales appeared to be back on track in the first half of 2019, up 19 percent. A redesign is expected in 2022.
Traverse: After a successful redesign of the large crossover for the 2018 model year, sales are starting to slow, sliding 2.3 percent in the first six months of 2019. Expect a freshening late next year for the 2021 model year.
Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon/Yukon XL: GM's full-size SUVs will be redesigned in 2020 as the company works to counter a well-received redesign of the Ford Expedition and the upcoming resurrection of the Ford Bronco SUV.
Bolt-based crossover: While the name isn't official, a Bolt-based crossover is finally expected to arrive for the U.S. in 2021, likely after it arrives in China as a Buick. Spy shots of the vehicle appear to show the design will be a mix of the Bolt and Trax.
Colorado/Canyon: General Motors' midsize pickups are expected to receive minor updates early next year amid increased competition from the Jeep Gladiator and Ford Ranger, but a redesign of the vehicles isn't expected until at least 2022, if not 2023.
Silverado/Sierra 1500: A year after redesigned versions of the trucks started arriving in dealerships, GM says it's still in launch mode, as it only recently started taking fleet orders and delivering more work truck models. The prolonged ramp-up, concentration on higher-priced models and pressure from Fiat Chrysler's Ram brand have led sales of the Silverado, including heavy-duty models, to fall behind Ram for the first six months of the year. Versions of the pickups with a new 3.0-liter, inline-six turbo Duramax diesel engine are expected to arrive in dealerships this year for the 2020 model year. A freshening of the pickups — particularly concentrated on the interior — could come next year or in 2021.
Silverado/Sierra 2500HD/3500HD: GM's heavy-duty pickups received much-needed redesigns and capacity increases for the 2020 model year. The highly profitable vehicles, which began shipping to dealers last month, feature distinctive designs to separate them from the light-duty pickups.
Express/Savana: Will they ever be redesigned? Expectations are not anytime soon. GM seems content to let the more than 15-year-old vans — whose development costs were fully amortized long ago — quietly age rather than invest in a new generation to compete against Ford's segment-dominating Transit series.
Electric pickup: GM executives have said an electric pickup is in the works, but there's not much more to say than that at this point. Whether the pickup will be powered by fuel cells, which was previously rumored, and the energy source for a military prototype GM made or a battery also remains in question. The zero-emission truck is expected no earlier than 2023.
