hey guys, i read an article that said chevy will change at least the interior of the 13 trucks. Can anyone verify this, i cant find anything on google. I am looking to buy a new 4x4 dually and wondering if i should wait a few months or buy now. Thanks, Roost

GM dosen't notify me of any design changes in advance.

I don't really work for them, though I do work as a parts advisor at a GM dealership body shop.

SORRY.

Google "spy photos Chevy trucks"

Heavily masked at this point. But there are some tid bits of info in the articles.

From what I've heard, just a facelift, and lighter. I was told about 500 lbs on a half ton. What cab arrangement that was, I don't know.

Camino, thanks man. I intend to buy a 3500HD dually 4x4 LTZ extended cab with every bell and whistle they offer, my final stand lol. I just hate to buy a 70K truck and then they get a big change the following year. I dig the hell outa the current body on a dually, but if they revamp the interior it would be fine with me. In the article I read it mentioned on board wi-fi, i figured it was comin, just a matter of time....Roost

Spoke to our truck guy and the dealers have nothing to show, and no details. If they did, he would have been glad to show me.

Everyone feels it's stupid to cutoff the orders without the next truck being "out" but, it is the infinite wisdom of GM.

It won't be long. The magazines will be the first to know.
