That is kind of personal preference. I voted Chevy simply because I have loyalty issues and will never drive anything that doesnt have a bowtie. But the GMC front end is nicer in my opinion and typically the interior seems a little nicer.

I say whichever u see, like the best & the price get it. GMC or Chevy.

I was in the same boat when I was looking for a new truck in 09. I just didnt like the look of the front grille of the GMCs. I had all Chevy trucks before I got the GMC. Went to many diff Chevy dealers & couldnt find any Chevys close to what I wanted in the color or options.
I went to a GMC dealer & I found a truck (my truck) on the lot that had what I wanted, except for (cab lights, tan color interior, PY0 wheels, & tow mirrors.) So it was the closest truck (with the options I wanted) that I could find on a dealer lot w/o have to order it.
