GM’s best-selling pickup is getting a front-end refresh.

Just two model years after its total redesign in 2014, the Silverado will receive a more muscular front-end and new grille design for 2016. The Silverado, America’s second best-selling pickup, will have a bold, body-colored horizontal strip cutting across the middle of the grille, twin LED running lamps, and single headlights. The grille will be framed by a more-sculpted hood and modern bumper with vertical fog light housings.

With Chevrolet pickup sales already up 32 percent this year, the company is hoping to strengthen its momentum with the design updates.

“The redesigned 2016 Silverado will build on Chevy Trucks’ legacy of dependability. It will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies,” said Sandor Piszar, marketing director for Chevy Trucks. “New front end designs with bold horizontal elements, sculpted hoods and dramatic lighting reflect the strength and refinement that have helped make Silverado the fastest growing full-size pickup brand this year.”

The 2016 Silverado will also include an expanded use of the eight-speed automatic transmission and additional safety technologies.

More product details will be available in the fall, according to General Motors.
