Autoblog tipster Jai pointed us in the direction of a pristine set of spy shots of the new Chevy Silverado, completely uncloaked. The GMT900-based new Silverado is clearly differentiated from its SUV siblings, but early comments on various message boards are mixed. Check out the full photos here, and tell us what you think.

      I am impressed with the front. The rest of it is a big Colorado which did not impress me.

      I would still by a Ridgeline anyway.

      Go HONDA!

      do you think it is better looking than a ram?

      I have a truck and the first thing that I thought of when I saw this was a bigger Colorado.... just like

      That high rear end is gonna wreak havoc in tight parking lots. I'm in construction so I can't hate trucks and SUVs, but I wish they'd lower those bumpers and headlights.

      I'm also annoyed by how hard it is to reach over pickups' sides these days. I've never seen any usefulness to their height.

      Yawn!

      Its unimaginative at best, disjointed from some angles and the fender flares seem unecessarily large.

      Notice how far the gap from the rear tire to the top of the fender is? I understand gap WITHIN a fenderwheel, but whats up with all the sheet metal above that?

      I too liked the flat slab sided early-to-mid 90s Chevy trucks and SUVs. There was an honesty to their design which told you all you needed to know. This new one looks like a focus group styling excercise. At least the Tahoe was well done.

      I am a huge GM truck fan...and I HATE this...
      I was waiting to trade in my 2003, but forget it.

      This is so ugly. It looks so "friendly" where's that tough big truck look...

      This is a flare side, which means it is going to look fat and round no matter what you do. I like this truck as it blended the old with the new very well. it does not look like a completely different path to walk down, but now somebody started taking care of the dirt road.

      The bold front grille is typical Chevy, and tells people to move out of the way or get run over. (nice)

      The Back is just like any P/U which is good because these are not cars, and not SUVs. A P/U is for hauling 2x4's and sheetrock or an ATV or your new hog (motorcycle for the rest of us).

      I would expect this truck to fly off the shelves especially with the active fuel management system GM now employees in most of their V8's.

      I wonder what the HD will look like in 08/09... Can't wait to haul my boat in style and a bowtie!

      Wow, that grill looks a lot like the current Ford Explorer. Sure you want to go that route GM?

      Talk about a major screw up ! The Silverado is "Butt Ugly"...... Now the Sierra is a what I would be looking to buy. Those bulked out fenders on the Silverado look like Pee Wee Herman with muscle implants. The truck doesn't look right. Kinda like a Barbie Doll on steroids. It truely is amazing how GM can make 2 trucks built on the same platform look so unbelievably opposite of one another.

      Dear Bobby Putz,

      Toyota thanks you for your continued incompetence. Your new Chevrolet pickup truck is so bland as to be invisible on the road. Only those scum-sucking Chevrolet diehards that have been buying your antiques will buy this lumpy, dull piece of roadkill. This thing is so bland that you would be spicing it up by offering a "Vanilla Edition".

      BTW, Bill Ford sends you his regards. Ford has nothing to worry from your cowardice in the truck market.
