I thank GMTruckGuy for picking out the HDs in the background, and I have blown up the Hi-res pic. It is easy to see the bolder HD Chevy face, bigger grill...

There is also the work truck and a GMC HD:

Looks like the Chevy HDs have a terrible case of chrome OD. Another point for GMC in the looks department.

The GMC looks to much like a F250 but the Heavy Duty Chevy is PIMPIN

The side view of the Chevy front bumper is very heavy visually. Otherwise I like these HDs.

Looks nice, although the Chevy is a little chrome heavy.

This'll give the Superduty's grille's something to chew on. At first glance, I thought, "way too overdone" but after looking at them a second time, they are right on the mark. With the Duramax, these things'll steamroll through the best Ford and Dodge have to offer. The bar has been raised baby.

b/c the Chevy's grille is so biggg now, it makes me think of the Cheyanne (sp?) concept. And i TOTALLY see people buying these vs the regular trucks, just b/c the grille is MASSIVE and sweet lookin'!

The HDs look good...I wonder when they will come out relative to the regular models and if they will have both interiors available.

You're right, Camino. Another point for the Sierra in the looks department. For some reason, the Chevy HD reminds me of a huge bodybuilder with a small penis.

Hmm, I'm liking the chevy HD better than the smaller silverados, especially if that's a more conservatively-styled bed on the back. Of course, I'm thinking dooley anyway, so I guess the bed doesn't really matter that much in fleetside styling. Front end looks EXTREMELY improved, even with that overdose of chrome on the front bumper. Grille looks better, hard to see what the fender bulges look like here, though. The GMC seems to be less differentiated between the HD and LD sizes styling-wise. Still looks good, just not as much extra gruffness to it. Of course, the LD silverados looked wimpy and cross-eyed to my eye, so they had a lot more room for improvement to begin with. I'm going to need some better, closer-up pics before I make a decision on which looks better, the GMC or the Chevy in 1-ton duramax/allison dooley trim. Maybe once Chevy and GMC post the 360's I'll be able to make my decision. Still, nice truck either way!! I want, I want, I want!!! Edit: You know, I kinda hope that the HD's don't have the high-end interior option, just the "pure pickup" interior...I'll be getting the pure pickup anyway, so it doesn't really matter either way, but that interior just begs to be put into every HD on the road....

The bed rear fenders look pretty much the same as the regular trucks to me..looks like there are two types of mirrors available (I wonder if the vertical ones extend out like Ford's SD mirrors for towing). that first photo with all the trucks reminds me of '60s-70s truck magazine ads, with the lineup parked in a field... neat.

I agree. Almost a blatant copy.

I hope these hold up as well in person because I'm liking both of them, but the Chevrolet grille is GIGANTOR. I agree with the others, the GMC looks a lot like the Super Duty. I really expected one of these to favor the Cheyenne concept we saw so many years ago....That didn't look like ANYTHING else on the road.

I like the standard-duty trucks better, but these still look good-and tough to boot.

That work truck looks terrible with the spot the grill painted black. Why couldn't they just paint it body collor? The GMC looks pretty good, and the Chevy looks really agressive and bold. I would probably go with the GMC.
