Default New Silverado

Have you seen it yet? Its finally on the Chevrolet web site and in my opinion it is the best silverado yet (although I do still love the 98 C/K style) you can get a 367HP 6.0 liter in the thing with 10,500 pounds of towing capacity in a 1500 series truck, thats out of this world. Anyway, I am excited, so check it out if you get a chance and let me know your thoughts......

It looks too Dodge Rammy-ish. I like the Dodge Rams, but I don't like when manufacturers try to mimic one another. That Chevy lacks personal style.

I'm with you...I really like the 88-98 CK series! Especially the Z71s.

The pictures dont do it justice on that site. There are a few other sites that have more extensive photo of it. And it looks more like the 07 Tahoe/Avalanche then it does a dodge. But it should be showing up on the lots in about next month or so.

The GMC version looks alright. But come on GM, need a distinct style all your own! No more of this wishy-washy curvy crap! We want muscular! Look at the bold lines that Ford trucks have. And the Kenworth inspired Dodge full size trucks. WAKE UP GM! You wonder why your truck sales are so freaking bad!

I like it, but I prefer the 1999 shape.
