Chevy Truck Styling
Lately they have been going down hill:
Avalanche- the "mean" look of the front end was cool, but it barely made up for the ugly cladding. Too bad they changed the front end on the refresh. Now it just looks like a busted pick-up truck with no identity of its own.
Silverado- the new front end and taillights looks like cheap aftermarket add ons. The "mean" look taken from the Avalanche is real gimmicky and a lame idea to base an entire line of trucks on.
S-10/ Colorado- unfortunately suffers from the same front end, but also includes horrible looking character lines along the side. (A similar idea was done very nicely on the Toyota Tacoma). Too many sharp lines that would look okay on a slammed "Xtreme" street version, but are too weak for strong truck styling.
Trailblazer- fortunately, the lines on the front end were softened a little, but they spent too much time on that, and couldn't help the rest of the truck. Personally, I prefer the GMC Envoy version with its subtle flares above the wheels.
The biggest disappointment has to be the SS Silverado. This truck should be the hottest thing around, instead, it is a 4door turd. It has a ton of cladding on it, but it is hard to tell because it is so boring. It just makes it look a little chunky. The only eye catching thing in it is the set of fake brake ducts on the front end. They do symbolize the truck though, no go and a real boring show.
I guess we can look forward to ugly Tahoes and Suburban's in the future. Oh well, the new Toyota Tundra looks pretty good.
