The "body colored" front bumper sure looks better than the chrome. The more I see of them, the better they look! I didn't really like the new look @ first though.
Yeah, they made it more rounded, not sure if that more aerodynamic or not.
When I 1st saw the photos of the redesigned Silverado's and Sierra's I was not impressed and thought them very ugly. If forced to choose I would have taken the GMC because I felt the front/grille looked better. All the bulges and flares in the new sheet metal didn't do it for me either. Frankly, the truck looked like a mutant hybrid between a Dodge Ram, Ford Super Duty, and a Nissan Titan to me. Unimpressed to say the least.
However, once they showed up locally and I was able to stand there and look one over in person that changed. I can only say the photos don't give you the "feel" that seeing one in person does. The new truck has a very rugged feel and truck like stance. They just look so much better in person. I also like the new Chevy front end just fine in person. Haven't seen a regular cab yet in person but they did a great job on the Crews and Extended cabs.
It is a very sharp looking truck!
