My family and I attend the car show this weekend. Not only was a '20 Chevy LTZ there but also a '20 GMC Denali. Below are some of the pics we took.

The Chevy is A LOT better looking in person, the truck is not photogenic. I tried taking pics at a different angle than just straight on. The Chevy was locked, however, the GMC was unlocked, but there was a line to sit in it. When I got a chance to sit in the GMC I didn't take any pics, too busy looking at everything and didn't want to take too long, trying to be courteous of others.. The interior is 99% the same as the 1/2 tons with some minor changes due to the HD requirements. I will say the GMC tailgate is sharp, and drew a big crowd. I really like the step in the side of the bed. Made bed access really easy. My method of getting in the bed would be step on the nerf bar, step in the bed access step, then step on the tire and swing your leg over.

The mirrors are huge, especially compared to my '02. I changed the factory mirrors to the TTT, and they must be half the size of the '20 mirrors. The truck is tall in the front, the hood does not slope down much, nothing like my '02. The rear of the bed is about the same height as my '02, but my '02 is running on 35's with a 2" lift. I did have a 5er that was not a problem to get the proper 6+" of bed clearance and keep the 5er level, so I don't expect any issues with the '20s either.

The DEF fill is definitely in the same location as the fuel fill, so that is a plus.

A couple of things I still want to see; I want to see what a long bed version of these trucks look like and I want to see a GMC SLT.

I am still on the fence about which truck I will purchase in the fall. The GMC is available in the metallic black and I do not believe that is an option on the Chevy. The GMC tailgate is cool, but I'm not sure how much use I would have for it. I guess my deciding factor will be price.
