I really like this blue on the Encore GX.

So I saw the release of the new Tesla Pickup and I’m wishing I hadn’t. Quite simply the most hideous looking thing I have ever seen with four wheels on it. Don’t even want to post a pic of it, it is that bad. Elon needs to back off the devils lettuce.

Agree, while I love the movie references and am fans of the said movies, this is a truck and the fact that due to the wonky roof line the back seat folks have to sit below the vision line of the front seat folks, this will ONLY APPEAL to Hard Core Tesla Fans. The rest will go with Rivian, far better looking truck.

I totally agree that Tesla's "cybertruck" is the ugliest modern day "truck" that will eventually be available.

It could be a Mad Max movie prop for the next sequel for sure, just needs the gun turret mounted in the back.

Rivian definitely takes the W with build and looks so far in the EV truck war, bigger bed is all the Tesla has over it.

The Tesla pricing is pretty competitive so far from what they're showing (we all know how the Model 3 pricing has gone) and it has to 'cause they ain't gonna sell it on looks! :yikes:

Pretty funny the Tesla presenters with Musk broke the glass in the reveal trying to show how "unbreakable" it is. :roflmao:

Tesla also has more range, payload, towing capacity, approach angle, more seats, and higher ground clearance.

Not just a bigger bed. 

Don't forget and UGLIEST. Wasn't going for the full comparison list, didn't really want or feel the need to. It's obviously larger, wider and taller, we all see that in the pics I posted.

What a moron. Would have been funny if it just collapsed in the center when they cut the top.

You can say anything you want when it is an unproven concept. NO ONE has seen this ugliest concept truck ever do anything motor mouth has spewed last night.

Hell GM could take a skate board platform, slap this GMC body on it and they would have a superior EV Truck.

Yes, a GMC Terradyne Duramax with option for EV powertrain! A bit polarizing, but much better futuristic look if it were to ever be the EV truck GM comes out with.

This GMC Denali XT Hybrid but in BEV form with the Avalanche midgate would be very doable.

How about that two tone @Drew Dowdell😀 R8 like side "blade door" look.

I'd still take this big burly SBC V8 sound in a truck any day over a nearly silent EV version. 💪🏻🇺🇸

No electric motor will ever look this good.  No electric motor will ever elicit the kind of sustained emotional connection people have had with their vehicles.  This is automotive high art.  All hail!

Thank you for PROVING the point that some folks have no ability to appreciate all kinds of ART.

Limited thinking makes one wonder how you function in a Multi-Cultural society of exciting change. 

Clearly Change is not you.

Yes this is a lovely built ICE motor that elicits excitement. EV motors can do the same and have their own lovely sounds and designs. The Future is about change in ALL FORMS of Autos.

Having preference in aesthetics does NOT mean one is close-minded or resistant to change. Just as unilateral acceptance of every single new consumer product pitched does NOT mean one is a bobblehead with no ability to make a decision for themselves or evaluate their own needs/wants.

If change was an aspirational virtue, where are all the wife/husband of the month clubs at?

No, really; where they at? 😉

To me, one of the loveliest motors GM has ever made:

Almost looks matte... but just on the nose. Satin finish?

CGI, just to show the general hue.
