This week, General Motors (NYSE: GM) revealed its 2014 model year truck lineup. It's a big moment for the auto manufacturer, which is still largely owned by the United States Treasury. The company hasn't been the top seller of trucks in the U.S. for a long time -- competitor Ford (NYSE: F) has been the sales leader for the past 35 years. So this marks a big chapter for the company, and the first major test of the new and improved GM. Let's take a look and see what early reports are saying about the new cornerstone of General Motors' platform.
Is bigger still better?
For GM's new pickups, though, it looks like it's back to business as usual. The burly trucks are bigger and faster than ever before, with more towing ability and, supposedly, more efficiency.
