K2 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra to remain in production until H2 2019

GM is slowly winding production of the outgoing K2 (third generation) Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups as it ups production of the replacement T1.


Dhivya Suryadevara, GM’s CFO, has told Automotive News production of the K2 Silverado and Sierra crew models will begin winding down early in 2019.

The double cab and regular cab models, more popular with work buyers, will start their wind down “early second half of next year”.

The fourth generation (T1) models began arriving in showrooms in August 2018 with production of the crew cab models
beginning in July at GM’s Fort Wayne, Indiana, plant. Double cab production began in October.

The company’s factory in Silao, Mexico, will become operational in January 2019, and will start regular and crew cab models then.
