Right now I like the current model of the Sierra over the Silverado. However, it sure looks an awful lot like the outline of the grill is lit up. Assuming it's not and it's just the picture, I'm not a fan of that at all.

I like the hood on the Chevy and the color match bumper, otherwise it looks like a 2004 Honda Ridgeline. If they pussify the HDs like that, I hope they get their nuts back before 2020 when I need a new one.

really surprised by all the comments on the new design. I think it looks great and very tough, even my wife said that she thought it looks much tougher and a lot better than the current design. The front and now has a visual interest, look at the current 1/2 ton, lots and lots of parallel horizontal lines, kind of boring. And they finally got rid of all that hideous chrome on the front end. like I already said I love it, and I can't wait to see how this looks on the new HD trucks!

..........................plus they added that cool silver mustache effect just below the bumper. Not only does it look great, but I am sure it adds some kind of useful purpose.

Yeah I agree. When I seen it for the first time I was thinking "finally!". Really digging it and bet it will look even better in person.

I too cannot wait to see the HD update.

I like it. I think it looks a heck of a lot better than the new Ford F150's. I have started seeing those pop up around here and I just cannot get behind them.

Excited to see the new HD trucks.
