I agree as well the hood scoop should be w/ D-max only

Wheel well lights, well don't see them on semis, but I will say if they somehow have them blink w/ turn signals, then maybe. Otherwise, no.

GMC over the Chevy front end...YES!

We just got a "new" 2012 Sierra 2500HD. Last 2 trucks have been Ford. Never thought I'd like a Sierra, looks or otherwise but I do. I don't like what they've done with the 2020 tho. If I had the cash in my pockets for a new truck, I think I'd pass on the new ones.

Besides wanting to out-feature the competition, they always seem to be trying to make trucks look meaner, tougher and more appealing to the testosterone crowd. Yes, it looks fugly. The mirrors are super fugly.

The only thing that could be fuglier is a 2020 Silverado.

Never did get to talk to the owner of the truck. I walked by a couple times to try to catch somebody. Oh well.

Did some looking. Seems like the reflectors/marker lights in the wheel molding is a GMC thing. Nothing on the Chevy side that I could find. Seems like a weird divergence between the brands.

Not sure why the wheel wells need to be so darn large and open. Makes the wheels look like toys. Definitely do not like those lights over the wheels.

I'm betting it's a factory test truck.

It's just been within the last week or two that automotive journalists attended a media first drive event near Bend, OR, so it seems impossible that trucks are for sale already.

Order banks opened in March and first deliveries were scheduled for last week. Check autotrader.com and you will see some already listed for sale. Some of the models like the duallies do have a later production start.

I hit a couple of dealers today.
N0 2020s around. Nothing on AutoTrader.com today either.


I did spec out a pending order for a 3500 Dually.
The paperwork states that the duallys are available to order 7/18-7/19

I saw a 2020 in Lexington, KY today towing a fishing boat. Didn’t get a good look at any tell tale signs of it being a company truck on a road trip or if it was a private vehicle.

I think it looked better in person than in the pictures.
