    I would expect that the 2015 Silverado HD is going to be very similar cosmetically to the 2014 Silverado 1500.

    They gave us some notes regarding the HD's back when they revealed the 2015 SUVs a couple of weeks ago. I'm dying to share it, but I have to wait until Thursday. <#bites fist>

    Ya know, it might be the angle of the pic you posted but the rear doors on that new Chevy look a bit smaller than the previous version.
    Might not be an issue for some but I use the rear floor to store my work tools, anything narrower would make it very hard to get my tools in and out. Not to mention harder for people to get in and out.

    Me too! I am not liking the current cosmetic look, at all! The electronics are a lot better.

    Good eye, that's the Silverado double cab, not crew cab.

    If thats a double cab that door might be narrower than I thought, hopefully the Crew Cab doors stayed the same or got a little wider.
    Im surprised they went away from suicide doors for the double cab, those doors offered better access.

    I agree with tbplus on the suicide doors on the double cab, unless the door opens 90 degrees or more. Make it a lot harder for a taller guy to get in the back. Good for younger kids but not adults.

    I actually see the concepts styles often here around Madison Heights. The other day I saw what looked like the new Sierra Denali pickup. I can always tell because they have that ugly looking zebra tape on them. I would have snapped a photo but Im against taking pics while driving, lol. Also my new neighbor is an engineer for GM so once she starts telling me about new designs and what not, i'll let ya know.

    I test drove a 2014 Silverado and the rear doors on the crew cab are huge. I expect the HD version to have the same doors. As far as the double cab, my 2008 was an extended cab and the full swing open suicide doors were a definite plus. Only Ford has the suicide extended cabs doors now as Ram, Toyota, and GM have gone with real doors.

    Official word on the Avalanche is that it's gone. In the future, who knows? But as for now what they have for sale is all that there's gonna be, and they suspect that most buyers (not all) will migrate back to a full-size pickup when they move onto their next vehicle.

    Well go ahead and disregard all of me negativity toward the '15 HD (that didn't take long :lol:)

    The pictures didn't do it justice....

    The Silverado HD front grille is hideous. I'm loving the Sierra HD.
