gnelson 06-12-2006 11:07 PM

Definately needs bigger tires to fill out the wheel well, but has strong potential. I think it will grow on me.

future 06-12-2006 11:18 PM

the front bumper either needs to be all chrome or all red ..... pick one!

wakeworld 06-13-2006 12:08 AM

Very strange looking bed. Is it a stepside or not? It looks like half of each.

osoyoosmaristar 06-13-2006 12:20 AM

First impression is that looks better than I feared from seeing the new Tahoe's. I agree the bed looks goofy, and the rear shot makes it look like a Colorado, but I do like those head lights. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the HD versions, as that is what I'd be interested in.

poserondubs 06-13-2006 1:21 AM

i am a huge chevy fan...but it is a truck..so why would u strap anything to the roof(why the roof racks?)..also the rear chevy emblem looks silly under the tailgate handle...but as with everything...it will grow on me <BR> <BR>DRew

siuski 06-13-2006 5:46 AM

I've been browsing the pickup sites for months and the first pic I see of the new truck is from the WW crew, WTG guys! I like the front, the bed is going to have to grow on me. Hopefully they didn't make the bed like the Fords...us short guys can't get anything off the floor without getting into the bed!

twitch 06-13-2006 6:36 AM

aaaaaggggghhhh... the took the ugliest parts of a ford, dodge, and toyota, and put them all into one making officially the ugliest truck i have ever seen... its too tall (dodge), the box looks almost useless (ford) and that fron end looks like a 3 year old puked all over it (toyota) <BR> <BR>and this coming from a guy that bleeds bowties, i guess ill have to get an 06 duramax, and not an 07

stepintoliquid 06-13-2006 8:01 AM

You said exactly what I was thinking twitch

bigjackamo 06-13-2006 8:08 AM

I'm going to go the other way and say, I like it. Also, I'm a Chevy guy. Does kind of remind me of the Toyota styling wise, but I think the Toyota's look cool too. I second the bigger tire's. That thing would look great with the 20's that come on the Tahoe or Avalanche.

kstateskier 06-13-2006 8:25 AM

I am a huge fan of the new Avalanche and Tahoe, but I think this thing is ugly. Looks like a big Colorado. I think my new vehicle will be an '07 Avalanche. <BR> <BR>IMO, the door handles and mirrors look horrible.

attila916 06-13-2006 8:32 AM

I think the rounded look makes the truck look small. I like the clean lines of the current body style. If they make a half ton with a diesel I will plop down the cheese.

trace 06-13-2006 8:33 AM

Looks like a Frontier or Colorado to me. Not a fan. Looks like my `99 will have to stay a while longer. <BR> <BR>I agree roof racks are kinda stupid on a pickup, but a lot of the crewcabs have them now. <BR> <BR>Here'a another thread on it: <BR><a href="http://fullsizechevy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214904" target="_blank">http://fullsizechevy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214904</a> <BR>

jarrod 06-13-2006 8:58 AM

yuck. <BR> <BR>The f150 looks a lot better

tdc_worm 06-13-2006 9:13 AM

call me crazy, but i think it looks like a cross between a nissan froniter and a titan (roof racks a la frontier, bed and two color front bumper a la titan)... only both the nissans are much better looking!

phatboypimp 06-13-2006 9:21 AM

I believe those "fender flares" on the bed are used to compensate for the four wheel steering. Ugly as hell, but functional. <BR> <BR>Owned Chevy's my whole life, but not a fan so far. Although I will say the new Tahoe's are growing on me (slowly).

pittsy 06-13-2006 9:23 AM

it looks ok...tires are way to small!

hal2814 06-13-2006 10:03 AM

I'm not the biggest fan but it looks better than the current Silverado and a whole lot better than the new F-150. I hate how they keep shortening the bed to make more room in the cab. If you don't need a truck bed, then maybe a truck isn't for you. I want a bed I can lay a sheet of plywood in without much overhang. I actually like the roof rails. It would give me something to tie long items like PVC pipes to. Does the Silverado still have a manual transmission? I refuse to buy a new F-150 or Ram because neither offer one and I don't need a hulking F-250. I haven't bought a Chevy since the POS Silverado I bought in 1985. This could bring me back into the fold.

bbeach 06-13-2006 10:09 AM

I think I'll keep my 2003 Silverado for awhile! <BR> <BR>not a fan...

byrd 06-13-2006 10:24 AM

I still like my 04' 2500HD Crewcab better....

jarrod 06-13-2006 10:44 AM

tdc...Titan was the first thing I thought of. <BR> <BR>I actually love the new Tahoes. With nice wheels and tires, they look dope.

poserondubs 06-13-2006 4:02 PM

wow fullsizechevy.com is my other fav message board... <BR> <BR>DRew

bigpapaf1f 06-13-2006 4:18 PM

TDC and J, I was thinkin the same thing! Titan!! 1 more reason to be a Ford man!!

06-13-2006 4:28 PM

I like it better then the new tahoe....The new tahoe to me looks like a wannabe MTV raps video, and not like a full size SUV...I two would be interested in the HD version..

jarrod 06-13-2006 4:40 PM

"wannabe MTV raps video" <BR> <BR>what do you mean?

attila916 06-13-2006 5:40 PM

It needs a lift and some mud slingers! <BR>The back window looks kind of goofy along with the fender flares. Maybe the extra cab will look better...

regalado1 06-13-2006 6:08 PM

That is the ugliest thing I have ever seen ever.

06-13-2006 10:19 PM

I mean, every wannabe rapper, wannabe gangbanger will have one..just like the H2, and Escalade..The interior is nice tho.

pjdave 06-13-2006 10:44 PM

front end of that truck looks sweet, the bed sides are terrible. wonder what the gmc frontend will look like.

hyperryd 06-14-2006 6:36 AM

I personally like the nose and most of the cab. The bed however really sucks. OverallI think that it looks pretty good. It definitely looks better than the Avalanche.

rhall 06-14-2006 6:48 AM

thats not what the 1/2 ton looks like...it looks like the new tahoe and avalanche. That nay be the HD...but NOT the half ton

jaubrey 06-14-2006 8:27 AM

No Ryan you are mistaken. That is the new Half ton. The Chevrolet and Gmc lines will have totally new front fascia on the trucks unlike they have in the past. I am a huge Chevrolet fan but I am not quite sure about this one. I hope to see a new rear and front bumper and a regular bed on the truck not the molded sportside. The interior is very nice though.

scottyb 06-14-2006 9:09 AM

Maybe they were market testing to a younger crowd because I think the new design (Tahoe, Silverado, Avalanche, and the Caddy versions) all look great. The only thing I dont like it that they need bigger tires but that is a easy fix.

rhall 06-14-2006 9:13 AM

unfortunately...umm no <BR> <BR>this ISN'T the new half ton. we already had the new half ton here on the dealer tour...not to mention the literature we have on it. sorry, but being a chevy fan doesn't always mean you're in the know

trace 06-14-2006 9:29 AM

So where are the pics, Mr. Credibility?

gnelson 06-14-2006 12:12 PM

The new Avalanche is out and it has the Tahoe front end. My guess would be the new 1/2 tons would have a similar front end. I think the photo is of a HD but it also has a Z71 sticker on the back? I think I just confused myself?

jaubrey 06-14-2006 3:10 PM

Well Ryan, The only new 07 truck on the Dealer tour is the new avalanche which does have the front end of the GMT 900's. I have seen this in person and it is the new half tons. When have they ever made Z71 heavy duty's? Never. <BR> <BR>I am not only a huge Chevy fan but a dealer as well. check my profile and website. Thanks and I am not trying to call you out but you are confused. The heavy duties won't be released until last quarter of 06 or first quartet of 07.

emay 06-16-2006 7:45 AM

I really dislike the Silverado as the spy shots begin to roll out. When I saw what they were intending to do I thought, if your gonna copy someone, pick a single line. They have a Nissan type split front and bed has flares that resemble the Tacoma's design. <BR> <BR>Once I saw the design I went with the Avalanche. I think the truck has much more potential. Got her a couple weeks back. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/336324.jpg" alt="Upload">

wkboardin 06-17-2006 8:16 AM

They ruined it just like the new Tahoe/Yukon.

jaubrey 06-17-2006 8:21 AM

Well Ken I agree with you on one part- the silverado I am not a big fan. But I have to say I have driven every new suv from GM for the last 8 years and I think the new tahoe is unbelievable. The ride and interior is great, the styling is aggressive and sexy, I think it is the best tahoe yet. Not crazy about the yukon frontend but it might grow on me. And the dealerships definitely can't keep them in stock so that is a great sign for gm. But you know what they say about opinions, they're like -----

99_slaunch 06-17-2006 8:57 AM

I think the new tahoe and avalanche are the best so far! I dislike the new truck.

wkboardin 06-17-2006 2:13 PM

Agreed.... everyone has one! Opinions that is. <BR> <BR>I hear the performance and upgrades are great. <BR> <BR>I am a die hard GM fan, but the exterior style has not grown on me at all. Looks too much like the Navigator.

pittsy 06-17-2006 2:21 PM

i love the look of the new tahoe!

97on22s 06-19-2006 8:29 AM

Sorry guys but for 07 the chevy truck looks the exact same...many local dealers already have there 07s just not invoiced there on the back lots. i saw them while i was looking...

trace 06-19-2006 12:19 PM

Are all Ryans in the world as credible as the ones on this forum? <BR> <BR>IMO the year model is a technicality... we're talking about the new GM truck body style, whatever year they call it. Also, when they came out with the new Silverado body in '99, they actually still built 1999 models of the old C/K body as well.

hyperryd 06-20-2006 8:06 PM


peterc4 06-20-2006 9:24 PM

The Silverado looks like a$$ but the Avalanche looks better than before imo.
