Prius GMC Pick Up

OK....So I am not a fan of the new FORD F150 truck front end styling.
I really hate the 2 HUGE Chrome bars running across the entire front of the F150... especially how the bars overlap the headlights....



Looks like FORD copied those crappy looking Chevy trucks with the chrome bar running through the headlights.



In fact the only decent looking new F150 is the STX with a nice, normal grille.
I almost bought one a few months ago, but then came to my senses and realized that I didn't really need a $42,000 truck. ( And this was NOT a loaded F150 model!)




BUT!....
I just saw the new 2019 Chevy Pick-up..........
and it looks like Toyota fired their Prius design team,



only to have them hired by Chevy to design their new Silverado 1500!

Take a look at this gawd awful looking front end:





It looks like an Ef'ed up Cylon warrior AFTER it got in an accident!



Who the heck would think that this is a cool, good looking truck!?!?

(Other than a Toyota designer..... and a crack smoking Chevy product manager)

Love Battlestar Galactica. Especially the reboot. I really enjoyed that and the extra Battlestar Galactica mini series.

As for the new designs. They are terrible.
The Rams looked great until the newest design.

And these are the last good looking GM and Ford trucks that I could just look at and like. Ever since those designs. All the trucks have to grow on me. And itís not working.

Prius GMC Pick Up

Iím digging the Ď87 to Ď96 Ford styles more and more myself. Iíve owned an Ď85, Ď89, Ď91, Ď95, and for the last 4 1/2 years an Ď04. And to think I was a die hard Chevy guy till I was in a bad spot and my neighbor sold me my Ď85 on the cheap..

As for Battlestar. I couldnít stomach much past the first few minutes!

The 2018 refresh on the F-150s really took awhile to grow on me but I think they look really good. The C-Clamp headlights are a love it or hate it feature but on the high trim trucks I think the new front end looks killer. If I can just get Ford to bring back the red interior like my 2013 F-150 Limited had I will have another one!

I agree about the big honking chrome grille bars, thatís why I got the color match paint, I think it makes for a good looking front end especially compared to the chrome

Always thought the 2nd gen Nissan Titan made for a nice looking F-150 clone. Two bad it's a piece of crap so far.

My last interest was the 2014, nice clean front end.

I had a brand new 2007 f350. Xl, with power windows and mirrors. Was dsg with the black grille. I absolutely loved it, and couldn't for the life of me understand why they changed in 2008. Have been less and less impressed with the looks of all newer trucks since the early-mid 2000s.
At this point, my '71 gmc will get a full restomod before 1 put a penny toward anything newer than 2007. And might do the suburban to match.

OOOF!!



Where's the barf bag!?

Chevy ain't stealing any pick up sales from FORD with this E'fin mess!

Maybe the douche in the Chevy Ads can explain why surveys show buyers gagging at the new pick-up truck styling.

Do they include free blinders for other drivers who end up near this abortion?
