Those Fords grills look like Rams grill.


And the GMC looks like the Ferd, and, and...same story since Harold Ford started rolling model Ts off the line!

I do like the new interior look ALOT (and I thought my '20 SilverAaado was the cat's @ss).
And love the attempt to get rid of low hanging plastic/trim on the ZR2. Although "ZR2"?? Really? Been used exclusively for the little trucks since the 90s. Why not Z71 or the recently well received TrailBoss??

And praying the 1500 truck front clip gets worked onto the HD's to wipe a little ugly off of their nose!

Wow, with that swept back windshield and high front grille, I hope it comes with a front-facing camera. A 5 year old could be standing 20 feet in front of that truck and be invisible.

GM just seems challenged to design to front of a truck. The front of my new 2021 F150 XLT Sport looks 10 times better than this new

Sounds like the Chevy 2.7 has some major torque.

My wife was diagnosed with ALS in December 2020 and I could not transfer her from a wheel chair into the RAM. So in the spring we sold the Laredo TT and RAM, and her son and his FIL brought the EDGE ST down to AZ for us. She passed away on July 5th!

So the dealer that sold us the ST 15 months ago gave me more than we paid for it and 2K off the F150, so I am back into a pickup truck.

The Edge towed the trailer with the Can Am Spyder just fine, however before I headed North for the rest of the summer I bought a Kawasaki KRX1000 side by side that is in the carport in AZ waiting for my return. With the box off the Primo 6x12 trailer the KRX should fit. It was going to push the Edge ST close to it's limits. The KRX is twice the weight of the Spyder.

So I looked at RAM 1500s (concerned about cam/lifter issues) , Chevy 1500s (concerned about lifter/push rod issues) and settled on the F150 with the 2.7L ecoboost.

Under different circumstances I would still have and be driving the RAM, which was a really great vehicle.

Mmmkay…. Dunno how they even can sell those unsafe vehicles….lol.

“think about the children!!”

Never mind I think all trucks come with front radar now too. These trucks are no different than any other. So if that’s the worst feature/issue, must be grasping at straws to find something wrong!

I read it won't be until 2023 for HD's to get the new look and interiors.


Been looking all over for this. Where did you see it? I initially have been considering a chevy 2500 or 3500 gasser but not a fan of the the lack of screen size and from what I've read the 6 spd transmission is not exactly ideal. Was leaning toward a Ram or maybe ford until I saw this release. Really like the new layout in the cab. The trany will still be a major factor if that also dont offer another option there.

You’re correct. The lowest powered engine, combined with a 15 year old transmission design and topped off with no availability of deeper final drives puts GM in 3rd place by a good margin. Maybe that sells more Duramaxes? I’m sure it sells more Hemi Rams and Fordzilla motor trucks!

The uhh interesting front clip on the Chebbies is just the cherry on top! One can only hope they get a decent refresh, even if they’re the same as the half tons.
Although the new current model GMC HDs, while looking a little to “busy” to me, look far better than the Chebbies.
