Pickup trucks are big business for all of the Detroit automakers, and more pickups are sold in Texas than in any other state. That's why General Motors (NYSE:GM) is starting the rollouts of its all-new Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra in Texas, with a five-month campaign that will include dozens of events.

In this video, Fool.com contributor John Rosevear looks at GM's latest launch plans – and at why Ford (NYSE:F), the leader in pickup sales, is delighted to welcome its archrival to the Texas pickup wars.
