Like everthing Chevy is doing lately, I just dont get it. Any pics of the GMC version out there?

Its a shame because I believe they make the most reliable HD trucks out there.

I have one of the new Super Duties bought when they came out for 2017 and its been a good truck so far in two years. Much better than the old design and looks far better than this 2020 if that is going to be what it looks like.
To me, as a client, it would be a lot more important to know that the person I hired purchases their tools (and a truck is a tool) because of the capability/utility/cost-effectiveness/etc; rather than than buying because it looks nice.


That said, from a functional standpoint every HD truck is nearly the same anyway. Seeing a crew roll up with a truck that has an extra 117 lbs max-payload capacity over its competitors still isn't going to matter much to someone who just wants their basement re-modelled or whatever.

I don't think it's an ugly design. I wouldn't call it attractive but it's not terrible. The Ford Super Duty designs have been questionable recently too.

Its more about what I want to see than what my customers do. Im writing the checks for these trucks. I dont want a fleet of ugos. Years ago it seemed like everyone was going to Sprinters. I couldnt stand the looks of them no matter what the specs were. I stay with the Chevy 3500 cutaway with the spartan service bodies for two reason. They are a great box and they look good for that type of truck. I know, it's how my warpped mine works. Lol

Thanks. Even with the camo i can see its much better. That will be an option for sure. They should just stop building trucks as Chevys and let them be GMCs. The GMC versions of everything have looked better for many years.
