I saw the new silverado HD in person today. I will say other than that godawful front bumper, They nailed it. It was a 2500HD ex.cab LTZ. in black.

Those big chrome dish things on the front has to change.

Although I think the old silverado bumper is no better just doesn't seem to match the truck....

Just my .02

well the good news is the corners are the same size as the 1500 so you could put the painted bumper to match the body color and look alot better maybe the 08 will have some better styling cues

I too looked at new HD yesterday. Guess when mine new HD comes in the corners will get acid etched, roughed up, and painted white (body color).
I measured and they are bigger than the 1500. The fleet guy I ordered mine from said they are being forced to order chrome on the 1500's too!

You're right man I too want pictures all the time is the best proof, but unfortunatlly I don't have them.Most local dealers at least here in cali have the gazers in the 2500hd you could see it for your self that would be the best way for proof I guess and I'm sorry I don't have any pics of the comparisons.:( hz=ave

I saw my first new 2500HD yesterday, it was a gasser. Not sure of the interior trim, had cloth seats so probably similar to the old LS. The truck was white, kinda plain looking. But i will say the pictures don't do it justice. The truck looks much better in person. The truck was parked in front of a 1500 and I must say the 2500 looks much better. I cannot get use to the chrome front bumper, seems like an excellent candidate for an aftermarket bumper replacement.

The interior looked good, this one didn't have the wood grain. I do feel better about the trucks now that I saw one in person. Sorry, didn't have a camera handy yesterday.

Still think my '02 HD looks the best...but my opinion is biased.

On other issue w/ the large chrome wings on the front bumper, they are flexible, maybe some sort of chrome plastic. Yeah...I wonder how long that will last!

Those are the same plain Jane steel wheels they have had all along. And they are butt ugly.:eek: Decided to go ahead and buy a 07 classic, had a GMC before and bought a Chevy, never liked the cat eyed front, but it's growing on me now. It had the Ultra wheels and Toyo 265's on it when I bought it along with the nerf bars and bed liner. Afraid of the LMM power package for now.:eek::

Finally got to see a new HD, WOW, what a truck, I was totally impressed and was going to go beat up the salesman that sold me my 06 instead of talking me into waiting for the 07, until I saw the front bumper.....What were they thinking? How could you hang that thing on such a good looking truck? I'm much happier with my 06 now.

We just got 2 in at our dealer. The only thing I couldn't stand is both were white :( (and ex cabs granted that's and the reg cab is it right now) The D max was already sold LOL and the 6.0 is just sitting on the lot. I will say they are WAY mor imposing that the older trucks.
I'm 6'2" and the top of the bed was almost even with my sholder (about 3-4" lower)
I still do not like the bumper, but I'll hold off total judging till I see a black CC LB :)
