For what it's worth, I own a 08 Sierra and I think the new Sierra looks much better than the new Silverado.

Right now they have discounts as steep as $13,000.00 on 2013 Sierras and Silverados. Is the new truck 13 grand better? I'm not so sure. They 13's are more than capable for much less money.

In the end it probably doesn't matter because we will either buy what they have to sell us or take our money elsewhere I suppose.
After seeing the '14 K2XXs in person, you'd have to pay me to take a GMT-900 over one.

The current 2010-2013 design is timeless in my opinion. This 2014 not an improvement. Maybe they did this to move the rest of the 13's remaining on lots for 2015.
Three niche/low volume models aren't going to be enough to keep Camaro afloat for two more years.

This will also give GM time to tool up the factory and hopefully get their quality to where Oshawa's was/is, if not better.
LGR isn't tooled for Zeta, nor would it be economically feasible to begin 5th gen production there.

Well I have been into cars since the early 60's, and I can say without any doubt that pictures do not always look as good or as bad as the actual car when you see it on the street. Also I can say there are a few cars that I absolutely hated when I saw them for the first time, but over a couple years they started to appeal to me and I ended up buying one.. Such as the Monte Carlos from the early 2000's and the HHR.

Well, all this bickering aside, the '14s certainly are showing up now. A few dealerships near me show several in transit, and one has a CRT 2SS on the ground with the Recaros!! I'm going to look at it today to see how I like them and if I want them for my 1LE... Can't wait to finally see a '14 in person!

It appears that the 2014 will have an Active Cruise Control system. The 3rd picture of the Black SS you can see a front mount sensor. Which means it senses the distance between you and the car in front of you and will modify your speed if necessary to maintain a safe distance. Anyone else agree that is what that sensor is for?

Do you mean the square piece on the passenger side? I think that is for a tow hook.....

I absolutely love the 14. I should have waited and gotten one, it looks more modern. That being said the 13 is awesome too, I love mine.
It's my opinion.

It probably won't, but fbodfather has said to give it a chance and see the car in person as picture's don't do it justice and not to judge before then. So out of respect for him people are going to see it in person.

I already know I like the '14s. I was taken back by the tail lights at first, but they've grown on me. As rickr said, they look more modern to me, and I like the look, especially with the 1LE package, which I'm getting. I also like the fact that the front end was changed with aerodynamic performance in mind. I just want to see what they look like, see the new color displays, and see how I feel about the comfort of the Recaro seats... It'll be very soon when I place my order!!

I finally "met it" yesterday... and its wicked. The tweaks are really nice, a bit more sinister. I was in and around a 2SS RS, Blue Ray Metallic. They did a great job on this tweak! Again, i love mine... always will... ALWAYS...

but this is nice, too. Im actually ordering in October.... staying with BLACK!

Seeing pictures of a car vs. seeing one up close and personal does make a difference if you're interested in it. Like a Ford Focus? I don't care so it wouldn't matter.

When they released the 3rd gen...hated the picture of the profile. Saw one in person and it was quite better than I thought because I could walk around it, touch it and sit in it. I ordered a new 82 Z28...

4th gen pics came out...ouch. EXPOSED WIPERS? WTF? HOW UGLY!!! Ended up buying a 93 Z28...98s came out. Ugh...the picture of new nose looked like a catfish face. Ended up ordering my 02 SS and the wife got her 02 Z28. MAJOR difference.

5th gen came out. I liked it right away from the unveil. But in person, I got to see just how FAT looking the car's ass is. Wasn't a deal breaker though. This is a case of the opposite effect. But wasn't bad enough to not buy one.

5th gen refresh pics...wasn't super excited about the tail lights or chrome piece right away. More and more pics/different angles came out and the more I saw, the more I liked. I do like how the ZL1 kept its nose and upgraded the taillights. Kinda neat actually.

So yes, pictures are a far cry from real life. Ask anyone who's done one of those online dating things.

Can someone take a video of one so we can see your view of "in person"? Pics are good, but I think the video will give a little more insight..

No - Victory Red was replaced by Red Hot - Red Hot is a non-metallic Bright Red.

Red Rock Metallic is a rusty/bronze color - think "Red Rock Canyon" outside of Las Vegas - not really red.

Yeah that is what I am talking about. I suppose it could be a cover for a tow hook but that would be the smallest tow hook I have ever seen.

well - I could give example after example -- for the past 40 years - but unfortunately that isn't going to amount to anything to someone who believes otherwise.

What you may want to do is to ask those at shows such as The Gathering in Atlanta - or Camaro Superfest - or the Sturgis Rally - anywhere where we have a couple of '14s on display. I continually watch people walk up to them and a majority look the car over and say "..I like it much better in person..." - and THAT is why I simply ask people to withhold judgement -- until they see it in person.

It's rather like reading a person's posts and making a judgement about them....perhaps it's better to meet them in person first - and then make your judgement.

Now - I'm sure this will lead to another round of discourse on how some people don't need to see the car in person........and that's fine.....but can we please stop the contest of who can come up with the best insult?
