Never actually read the press release, I was looking at the sales PDF. But you are right, they did quote 800k+. Going from the sales #'s, it looks like LD Silverado/Sierra total something around...

Looks like GM splits the Silverado 3 ways: LD for Light Duty (1/2); HD for Heavy Duty (3/4 & 1 ton); and MD for Medium Duty (bizarrely, those are the 4500+ trucks). But even if they were combined, I...

If they can get away with lumping every pickup bigger than the Ranger into 'F-series', why not do the same with everything that starts with 'Mustang'?
