Somebody worked overtime to make that thing as ugly as it is. Must have hired some GM designers.

As it sits. You couldn't pay me to drive it. I have standards.


I was thinkin the same about late GM trucks,and Ive been drivin Chevys for over forty years now,
the box look is not only ugly but gets worse mpg as a result,no more GM for me.

Only time GM had great lookin truck was the Holden UTE

Tesla truck is made that shape bc such hard stainles steel cant be formed only bent in two axis.
main advantage is that dagger shape should get the best range mpg simply for its aerodynamics.
Id buy it even it wasnt electric.


But that’s not a truck....lol.
Are you implying somehow GM shaped bricks have gotten less aero and the other mfgs bricks have gotten more aero? Cause I don’t see it. I would bet there is only a very small difference between any full size pickup brand to brand, year to year since the 90s.

One certainly hopes the next future will be better looking. It is new, and different, but it will never be a classic, just different.

So they are using a hard stainless instead of the type used in this car?

Ford stainless

[image]Is that why the Deloean was a bit angular with a moulded front and rear trim instead of steel?
