    It looks small, the cab looks like they took it from a Toyota and the bed looks too small. If I wanted a Ford Explorer Sport Track, I might like it.

    It is a full size pick up truck though, I think it is the picture angle...But I hear ya, I think the body lines, make it look smaller than it is..

    Wow, that is a really ugly truck. Here's my thing, you aren't going to get people who don't already like trucks to buy a truck because it's "shaped better" or because I can now get 22mpg in a truck all the time. But what you will do by making a hideous truck (like this one) is turn off the people that want...a truck. If I wanted a minivan or an SUV, I'd buy one of those...not an SUV looking truck.

    Hi Erica,

    Sorry about the link to the Super Chief but when I see that concept truck and the the link to the 2013 that you found :) it really makes me wonder what GM is thinking..... I like the Moon Crawler idea....lol

    I love sitting at a stop light and some guy is in his mini van with the turbo charged v6 and he thinks he is going to pass a a Vortec V8 and show off when the light turns green.

    I live near Raleigh (NC) and Raleigh is the state capital. I do allot of night time driving and I love seeing law enforcement from say Charlotte or maybe 5 counties away coming and going in the middle of the night and they have no concept of what speed limits are and they are way out of their jurisdiction.

    I actually installed a video camera on my dash and a camera at the hitch behind me so I could record when I have been stopped for any other reason. Radar guns have come down in price allot too .....

    Accelerating fast, that's what all the guys who drive 1996 Chevy Tahoe LT say....

    The Chevy future concept trucks, just keeping getting more space-ship looking... Next thing you know they will adding jet engines and "PUSH TO FLY" button on the console...

    There is some guy out in CA that took an H1 hummer, gutted it out; installed a 500hp RR turbine jet engine in it. The turbine spins a generator sort of like an alternator only bigger :) and then he installed electric pancake motors where the breaks/discs would go. He gets over 100mpg in a 12,000lbs hummer. GM asked him to do a presentation on it and it really worked.

    GM wants us to continue burning regular gas and oil and only get 14-22 miles per gallon in our vortec's..... Might have to garage my truck and buy a new one so I can play with the old one a little.

    oh and he gets limitless torque

    That GMC concept looks better, but give me the old 03-06 body style any day.

    I don't much care for the style of the truck. Sexy? Truck- No. GMCerica -Yes!!!!!!!!!!
    If you come with the truck I would buy it. But no GMCerica , no truck!

    * The front end and swept windshield looks like the Camaro front end/grille/windshield ... truckified.
    * The window angles remind me of Ford trucks' window angles ... minus the lower cutout.
    * The rear looks very stepside or SRS-ish.

    YUCK.

    Its a very cool concept, but I wouldnt replace the current Silverado with it. It might be a cool addition to the product line though, maybe replace the Avalanche with something like that concept.

    I hate this concept, and everything about it. The Ford explorer sport trac is a more attractive vehicle than this.
