The Silverado looks better than the Sierra.

I saw an all black Sierra lifted leaving rocky ridge the other day it looked bad. I wish I knew what was up with the 2500 and 3500 I might hold off and get one

Both look ridiculous & too boxy. Not crazy about the interior, either.

I've always leaned more toward GMC but the Silverado looks much better this round. I think the headlights on the Sierra are what ruins it for me.

I think they are both a big flop, the interior looks cheap and gaudy. I can see where I am going to have to baby my 05', until I see the NEXT body style. :(

I read an article about the new GM trucks, if I read it correctly the Z71 package is no longer offered as an appearance or equipment package, its now a model truck, i.e. like Silverado 1500 or 2500, you have a Z71 1500 or2500. At publishing time GM wasnt even confirming if the package would be available on 2x4 trucks.
The trucks look ok, maybe theyll grow on me.
The 4.3 engine is still base on Silverado but with ECO tec it got a boost to 285hp, the 5.3 is bumped to 355hp, ratings for the 6.2 specs arent out yet.
The Z71 package also includes a hill control desent system.
The MSRP looks like itll keep me out of one of the new trucks for some time.

The 6.2L is supposed to have 420HP and 450TQ.

I like the bodies of both trucks. Yes, they are a bit overly boxy but I can dig it. However.. I hate the front end on the Silverado. I suppose I can stand the front end on the GMC. In either case, it looks like I'm going to have to baby my 09' for awhile. I don't see myself driving one of these. (Especially for that price.)

One thing that does drive me nuts is the bumper step. It stands out like a fungus growing on the side of a tree. It is too pronounced.
