At least a truck has a grille and bumpers that look good chromed. Cars hardly have any bumpers or grilles to chrome anyways...lol...all good. Long live chrome!
Long live chrome!!!! When I was younger, my pops was restoring a 56 Chevy 210. I have had a soft spot for chrome ever since!

I don't mind some chrome, but the Denalis do have a LOT of it. The full size truck segment loves that though so.

I don't like chrome but minimal chrome accents can look good, but most are starting to look like the truck was bedazzle. I would just be happy if they took all the chrome out of the INTERIOR of the cars, or at minimum keep them off the dash and center consoles.

Good luck with that ... the steel that makes the car will melt before the chrome does. It has a very high melting point.



Unless you were talking about the web browser from Google. If so, yes kill it with fire(fox).

My guess is most of this chrome is just ginger-bread plated plastic. The chrome might outlast the actual plastic in a fire....lol...

Chrome wheels, chrome steel bumpers, more traditional and durable. It will be interesting to see how long the bling holds up on chrome plated plastic grilles and plastic trim parts.

I still like it, but it can be overdone.

I guess that means we won’t be seeing the C8 any time soon.

Denali's do have a lot of chrome. And in places where it really shouldn't be.

The funny thing is all the GMC Sierra's get chrome bumpers except the AT4 and Denali. Yet they plaster chrome mirror covers, door handles, and window trim.

I've already swapped my mirror covers for the body color ones, door handles are next, and the entire grill surround is also getting body color treatment to break-up the chrome on the front end.

To comment on GMC's HD - already looks infinitely better in the front than the Silverado. Still not a huge fan of the new headlight design though.
