GM's executive committee recently approved several hundred million dollars to fund a major update for its full-size pickup trucks, according to a report in The Detroit News.
The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are expected to receive more aerodynamic exteriors, updated interiors and fuel efficiency improvements.
The current Silverado and Sierra light- and heavy-duty pickups were introduced in 2006 as 2007 models.
GM will introduce freshened 2011 Heavy Duty pickups this year with an all-new frame and a new Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V-8.
The updated trucks are two to three years away from showrooms.
