GM should stick with their ugly trucks. It gives us all something to make fun of...
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialist concludes that we object to its being done at all. " -The Law, Frédéric Bastiat, 1850
The GMC's styling is still not very well executed, compared to the Ford. The Ford is WAY better looking. The grill on the Jimmy is too large in proportion, and is too promonate. The light lens take up all the available remaining space, creating a cheap, plasticy look. The bumper on the GMC is poorly intergrated, with awkward discontinuies in line and form.
I remember when Ford re-styled the Mustang in 94. It was a great new look for the times, way better than the enlarged Geo Storm (read Camaro and F body). In a few years GM came out with the Olds Alero, and the Pontiac (I think Grand AM) that were obvious, but inferior, rip off's, of the SN-95 Mustang's basic look. I think what GM does is put the image of the design they hope to copy on a computor, and then morph it using soft ware.

Life is not only time……paradoxically, it is the denial of time!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

I really think that pick is photoshoped. Im guessing they took the older GMC front end, replaced the grill with the current F-150 XL chrome grill and messed with the hood a tad. Just check out the shape of the grill, its exactly the same. If that truely is a spy pic...wow http://www.fordvehicles.com/Trucks/f...ewID=27&bhcp=1
