Sales will go down for sure. That is the most pathetic looking truck I’ve ever seen. The front grill, and especially the mirror location on the door is hideous. I always have owned Chevrolet’s my whole life and a real die hard. Chevrolet you really screwed this truck up bad. Fugly

I’m a Chevy guy, and I definitely don’t love that. That AT4 HD looks nice though.... excited to see that in person.

The GMC front looks like a SuperDuty....and the Chevy looks like a '75 Peterbilt grille. I'll stick to my old crap...it's paid for too.

How the hell does that GMC look like a Super Duty?
The headlights and grille group...sweep in and down on the polycarbonate light stuff...just looks like the same styling. Not the rest of the truck...the rest looks like it was cut out with a Skillsaw.

Geezus. I just noticed the mirrors! Its just too busy. They crossed the line from simplicity wtf happened here.
If all the chrome is gone it wont pop so much.
You can add another hour to washing it

I'm a Ford guy that always liked how much better the Chevy pickups looked, but I believe i've just changed my mind.

The 1/2 ton Chevys have really started to grow on me. I don't see that happening with the HD. That is a HORRIBLE front end. The GMC though.... That one looks pretty good. The door mounted mirrors are still incredibly ugly to me.

The mirrors are just terrible. Saw one yesterday. I bet the doors start cracking where the mirrors are mounted to the door skin. Looks like JC Whitney will be loosing business since the trucks now come stock with half the crap they sell.

Big Chevy fan here. FUGLIEST grill / front end ever. It almost looks like Japanese design.

GM sure screwed the pooch with those new Chevy/GMC grill designs. They should have deleted the trim piece above the leading edge of the hood. Then those door mirrors, just ugly. Too massive. Think I’m keeping my old Chevy dually for at least another year!

The scary part is some group of designers and wigs looked at this design and said this is it!

Don’t they have focus groups give opinions on shit like this when they designe this stuff?

I am sure there are some people that think it looks all right, but good God I don’t like it!

It looks like a Chevy mated with a Ford and that’s their offspring. I’m a Chevy guy through and through but that is butt-ass fugly.

I just noticed they have an integrated side step at the lower front of the bedside. Wonder how that's going to look in person? Ugly marker lights on the fender flares. The beaners are going to be all over these trucks.

The new Denali HD is awesome in person! The Chevy doesn't look near as good, but better in person than in most pics. I only snapped a couple pics at the OKC Auto show last weekend.
Unfortunately they moved the DEF fil to right by the fuel fill, so now gm will have trashed fuel systems like Ford and dodge from people dumping def in the diesel tank. But, the upside is the def tank is relocated it looks like!

Did they move the def tank? Just saw pics
Yes. They moved it back and up (I'd guess they switched it's side too but not sure) so it cannot be seen from outside the truck.

That Chevy is what happens when your designers took too much ecstasy in college.

I'm a Chevy guy that is going to Ford. The GMC is tolerable at best. Keeping the same interior design as the outgoing truck didn't help matters either. Ram and Ford interiors are leagues above GM.

Agreed. The HD is pretty hideous but I saw a 1/2 ton a few days back that looked pretty nice.

Became partial to Chevy in the late 80s while living in LA. Dealers with modified trucks on the lots in every color. River runs with modified Chevy trucks like budnik built. Had a bagged OBS and enjoyed life for some time. The last few Chevy model change lead me to look at Ford. I still went with my Denali in 2013. Too much plastic in the ford interior for me.

HOWEVER this thing that Chevy is offering would make me jump to another brand in a heartbeat.

I can’t afford one anyway, but that’s not attractive.
