Is there a comparable Chevy truck site?

I assume that Chevy will redesign their trucks in the next year or two - current design has been around a while, and they need to try to catch up to Ford and Nissan.

I'll probably buy a new truck in the next couple years. FTE site is great - but is there a comparable website for the Chevy/GMC trucks, so I can keep abreast of issues/coming changes to GM trucks. I hope they make a big jump forward in design, so that I can choose between Ford and Chevy based only on price/options rather than overall design (which I think most would agree is topped by Ford currently.)

Thanks.

Nope no comparable website compared to this. This is by far the best truck site on the net bar none. Ford so far ahead of GM right now in trucks I dont think they will ever catch up. Hows that for a baised Ford guys opinion. Now back to your question I know of two pretty good ones right off hand MCT trucks My Chevy Truck. Chevy talk. They have a section for trucks. Those are two of the better ones I know. There are others. What are you currently driving. I didnt check your profile. Also what Fatman said thats a good site too.

Tom Petty,

If you buy a chevy w/ the Isuzu diesel, they throw in a free set of chopsticks and dinner for two at Hunan Gardens. I'll take your fortune cookies, if you don't want them.

The next major Silverado design will be for the '08 model year. I think becasue Ford has a new 1/2 ton and an updated SD - Chevy trucks will need an over-hauling.You can stay at this site I'll keep you informed.

Wow, a Chevy pickup with a blown V8 that is capable of spinning the tires when empty. I know I'm impressed.
