GM begins deliveries of Duramax Silverado and Sierra after a forced delay

The reason for the delay was the mandatory certification of emissions, due to which the supply of pickups to dealers had to be postponed for several months.

The American concern General Motors has begun supplying its full-size Duramax diesel pickups to dealers in the United States. Local car dealerships were waiting for the diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which were supposed to enter the market as 2020 models for three whole months. The delay was related to the state process of certification of vehicle emissions.

In the process of passing this mandatory procedure, it turned out that the US Environmental Protection Agency needed more information than the automaker expected. This explanation was voiced at the GMC press conference in Wyoming.

 For the new Silverado with a diesel engine under the hood, you will have to pay $ 42,000. Sierra diesel pickups are priced more expensive – $ 43,285. Both models will stand on the conveyor of the brand factory in Flint, Michigan.

Meanwhile, it became known that a new ZRX pickup may appear in the GMC lineup. An application for registration of the ZRX trademark has already been filed.
