    1 photo? I can't say if i like it or not with 1 photo.
  • As expected, the chevy version won't win any beauty contests but the sierra is sharp. Look forward to some real world testing to see if they improved the rear diff logic for those of us that live in colder climates. I'm actually excited that I have 3 good choices when it comes to domestic pickups when I start shopping next summer.
  • Pretty boring redesign.
  • "Edmunds says: GM plays it safe with its new generation of full-size pickups. The market will determine if the General should've taken more risks, particularly with styling."

    Leave it to Edmunds to take the most negative spin it can with any new GM introduction. They probably had this alternate version ready just in case: "Edmunds says: GM takes risks with its new generation of full-size pickups. The market will determine if the General should've been more conservative, particularly with styling."
  • holy crap the new blog format is awful.
  • One can hope that some day, evidently not today, automakers will make truck noses more aerodynamic instead of the bluff bows favored nowadays.

    Ehhhh. Hate the squared off wheel wells. Just lowered my expectations for the Tahoe.......
  • For some weird reason the silverado is just screaming Colorado Colorado. I feel like I see too much Chevy Colorado in the design doesn't blow me away as I as hoping. Interior screams Ford Super Duty real bad nothing seems to 1 off from what I've seen or read about. Put a 7 speed dual clutch auto and be a first (leader) and then buyers will come.
  • What is NEW here? Not happy or excited because I'm waiting to replace my 2001 GMC Yukon! Not looking forward to see this design on a redesign Yukon, or the other 3 though Cadillac should do something exciting with the Escalade as usual! Should be called a light re fresh!!???
  • One of the few GM interiors that doesn't look like it came out of an '88 Beretta...

    Looks like they just slap on some after market headlights and called a day. Major fail
  • Man Step!!!
  • It looks a mess
  • Nice wheels and that's about it. Interior is an epic fail; same cheap plastic bubble buttons from the Camaro. The nav/stereo/hvac unit looks like my daughter's Leap Frog. The exterior and wheel arches are too squared off. I'll wait for the new Tundra.
  • So Inside Line has been killed off by the equal of a badly written dealer brochure?

    Gone is the humor, well written prose, and the relationship with readers.

    Now Edmunds has become just another tool for consumers looking to squeeze another $125 off their next Camry purchase!

    Hope you guys enjoy bankruptcy court cause that is what happens when you abandon your market!

    I'm outta here!
  • Ford and Dodge (Ram) haven't taken huge chances with the styling of their trucks in years. They have all been evolutionary - why should GM be any different? Sharpening the needlessly round edges has given this truck a more elegant look, and the interior looks great. Hopefully the engines are more competitive. Especially the 4.3L. That's at least 2-3 generations behind the times.

    not very promising on paper or in pics, so far...
  • Horrid design,

    I have been a huge GM fan most of my life, especially the trucks, but this is terrible.

    What changed? Who designed this thing? GM constantly gets bashed for plain generic trucks. So what do they do? The come out with an even more generic truck.

    The interior is even worse.

    I didn't think the 2007-13 good get any worse, boy was I wrong.

    Sorry GM, I am no longer a customer.
  • They sure are scared to do a major exterior change. Too bad, this look is outdated. Get some balls gm.
  • I seriously don't know what they were thinking. Being redirected from a modern website with large images like InsideLine to www.Edmunds.com, is like going back in time 5 years. This is an awful experience now. Whatever they were trying to do to bring together an enthusiast website and a website for the average auto buyer is not working at all. Keep them separate or figure out how to redesign the entire website to work properly.

    Yes it really sucks, Edmunds has been going down hill for years, now they're getting rid of IL, forget it. Moving on to something else.

  • I miss the full-screen, hi-res photo option the old blog format used to have. I can barely tell if I like the interior or not because the photos are so small. :(
  • Terrible interior.

    please go back to original blog format, i freeking hate this
  • I don't like or dislike these trucks, but I have to say: this mild reflash is just not going to get Chevy/GMC a lot of new customers. Chrysler realized their only way to sell their trucks was with eye-popping style. So, they did it. Sure, Ram is in at least third place, but they are making a profit. GMs pickups are resting on their laurels (if they had any), and they have been doing this for 10-15 years.
    I had a laugh when some blog said that GMs new V6 would be designed to be a truck engine only. I guess that is a snide remark about the VERY popular Ford EcoBoost V6, which of course is used in other vehicles. Perhaps GM should wait and see what buyers will buy-- before they immediately begin bragging.

    I was hoping for a nice, close rivalry between Ford and GM. But now it seems like it will be slow business as usual-- for GM anyway. I can hear thousands of pickup buyers heading for the Ford store after seeing these photos. What a shame.
  • Okay, here is the good and the bad, in reference to my post above:

    1. It was posted immediately.
    2. All my paragraphs were mashed together into a stream of sentences. Should be interesting to see what it does with this post. Ah, well, just more things we have to put up with, I guess.
  • I give up. They shoved everything together again. But not THIS post!
  • This truck is GM's answer to the future? Say what? SAME truck IMHO. NO turbo. NO CNG fuel option and NO diesel?

    GM you represent the past.
  • My god. an actual dedesign.
    I didn't know that those existed.
    (Dedesign->Design->Redesign)
  • Cannot see pics when commenting, that sucks.
