Good looking truck but I am sticking with Ford.

They finally pulled their heads out and put ROUND wheel wells on there trucks. looks like a much better design than their previous generations of trucks. Still prefer my Ford.

Looks great. Still like my Ford, but Chevy builds a great truck.

I don't know that I like how the fender tucks under the headlights. I'll have to see it in black, but overall not bad. Much better than the 2003 vintage, I still find those fugly.

GM could build the best truck ever made; they gave me bum truck and didnt care to see me go. I'll stick with Ford and a solid front axle.

Remember, this is their Trail Boss version with a Chevrolet designed and warrantied lift kit and bigger tires.

Appearance wise it looks like a cross between a '99 Silverado and the current Tundra - hopefully they will push the mechanical attributes a little further.

Not a fan of the grille. The current 16-18 grille looks spectacular, especially on the Z71 models. If the 6.2 had been available in a lower trim I may have bought one over my F-150(which I love, don't get me wrong).

This newer one looks like a Tundra fornicated with a Colorado. I think the design could be saved if they fixed that curve on the fender and straightened it out and made some changes to the grille. The headlights are too narrow.

It's funny. All these years we've made fun of the square wheel wells...but now that they went round.....I think they should have stayed square. It's like seeing somebody lose weight but then they look like they're dying.

I think it is the cross between a Toyota and Ford F150 and it is their love child. It looks better then current but I also read the bed bottom was steel and the rest was light composite materials (IE ALUMINUM) so that should be really interesting!

Composite is probably fiberglass or carbon fiber.

This rendition looks pretty good. Probably hiding drum brakes on the rear or something though. I don't trust them to do something real thorough.

Reminded me of the Tundra I used to have. Still would not be my first choice - sticking with the SD.

Not exactly love at first sight, and I'm a GM guy normally.

Looks like they hired the guy that styled the Honda Ridgeline.
