The front end reminds me of the Dodge Ram 1500 and the box lines look similar to the Colorado.

For me, it will take some getting used to. Like Red, I'd like to see it once it is in the hands of an enthusiast and it starts getting "modded" up. Something about it being stock just doesn't look right. Maybe it's because I'm used to seeing so many sweet rides on here that have been individualized.

I like it, different, the front lower valance and fog lights blend together well for me.
Envisioning it with a billet grill insert, a billet grill in the lower valance area, color cordinate the valence area that isnt covered by billet, fat tall tires, a dropped level stance that tucks the tires under the edge of the fender, a flat bed cover with a slight flare built into the tail thats blended with the existing line and a two tone color combo I think it'd be a very sharp truck.
This appears to be a mock-up so we'll see what the actual product looks like.
Dang might have to see about trading my 4 month old truck for a new one already.

I think the dodge-like appearance on the front is interesting... but the grille is too big in relation to everything else.
That being said, I'd say that's definitely a photoshop. The headlights are the exact same ones as the current, just compressed and tilted. I don't really see GM going to 5 lug wheels, and the front bumper is just the current one that has had the end caps extended upward, the center valance stretched outward, and the grilled extended downward where the metal bar would be. It is also very similar to this shot of a 2012 that I flipped to match the direction it is facing. I'm guessing the original probably came from the same photo shoot:
Here are some spy photos of new GM trucks from Car & Driver's website... notice the crew cab has a new cab design (top of cab is different), different mirrors (for the non-towing ones), projector headlights from the looks of it, 6 lug wheels, etc. It also looks like the extended cab could have normal doors that don't need the front ones to be open. I also see what could be a new interior in the shot that is looking somewhat in the window.
