IF you are going to go full size and won't go to Ford then I say go GMC. The Chevy is just to ugly to look at


If we stop enough people from buying that god awful looking Silverado maybe it will get an emergency refresh like the camaro haha!

Appearance has always been subjective. With that being said, I wasn't too keen on the new model at first; however, after visiting a few dealerships and seeing them up close, I think they're pretty sharp. I saw a really nice looking black Trail Boss w/ red accents at the dealer last weekend.

I'm with you. I've warmed up to it over time, especially after seeing it in person. I would rock a Trail Boss. It's not much more than a Z71 however for the OPs purposes. Still disappointed in the interior but that's been discussed ad nauseam.

Raptor is a great point.

I wish it still had a V8 though

True, appearances are totally subjective. I drive past a Chevy dealer everyday on my way home and they have a row of brand new silverados out front and center.....everyone one of them beaten with the ugly stick lol, esepcialyl the work trucks

Thanks!

I wasn't wild about the Sierra redesign either but seeing those in person swayed my opinion, especially in the Denali trim. I still think the previous gen was better looking but the new Sierra IMO is way better than the Silverado.

I can't vouch for the ride of the Rubicon, but the Trail Boss is quite possibly the smoothest ride I've ever had offroad. During PDI I took a couple of ours through the back lot at a pretty moderate speed to see what it's about and they sailed right over the rough dirt terrain. There are pretty deep potholes and large bumps, felt very comfortable in it. It has very nice road manners as well. I am however not a fan of the exterior or interior, but that's all subjective and up to the individual if they like them or not.
