Default why is it always chevy truck month?!

Watching TV tonight and a Chevy commercial comes and my girlfriend asks me why is it always chevy truck month?

Anyone else notice this after she mentioned it it does seem that's how they start every commercial all the time.

Crap, they have to figure out some way to sell the POS. Constantly running rebates to try to keep up with Ford.

I will admit the new ones are better than the last few years.

Agreed. I've seen some new ones that are pretty nice.

Because it's Trucktober coming up on Truckvember. Seriously though, I was wondering that myself yesterday. It seems like it's been truck month every month for the past 2 years.

Agreed. They finally started spending a little money on R&D again.

Chevy takes that time of the month seriously... Never drive anything that bleeds for a week and don't die...

A guy I work with just bought a new Silverado 4X4 and parks it next to my 2014 STX 4X4 every day. It has a 6 cylinder, no turbo just a regular six in a full size truck. I can’t even imagine what a load that thing must be. I leave work before him in the afternoon so every day when I’m walking out to my truck I look over at the POS and have a little chuckle.

My grandfather is a big chevy guy, he bought a 14 right before I bought my 14 f150. I swear he has a parking spot at the dealership. He has had 12 recalls so far, he's gotten to the point of just taking it there to get an oil change and all the recalls that built up...

I third/fourth/etc that they have to do that to try and keep up. I have sat in the 13s and 14s and they stink. They feel cheap and are nowhere near as comfortable as mine.

I only hope that with the 2014's offline and the 2015's just getting ready to come on stream, that Ford can maintain their 37 year run as the best selling vehicle.
