There are several major differences from the HC grill to the rest...I like the HC grill but I am old school and I like chrome...so the HC is out for me. I looked at the opportunity to swap an HC grill onto a LTZ, but there are way too many difference to allow that...at least in my preliminary investigation

The GMC tailgate is something I have liked since I first saw it. Many times I use a step ladder to get in & out of my bed. And that's with a comparably low sitting 2002. The height of the new truck just makes that tailgate waaaaay more desirable to me. That step should prove really handy. I heard them say in one of the early intro videos for the '20 models that only GMC would have that tailgate for the first year. I'm wondering if it'll be available on the '21 Chevys. That would be nice.

I LOVE my white truck. Second one. The next one will be white too. And yes, the '20 LTZ that I drove the other day was white and that front end was just nasty looking. The Cajun Red is my favorite color but white is just too easy to care for and believe it of not, it seems to hold up better over time than most other colors.

Had a black car once..... once. Have a 30' black boat now. Love the look, not in love with the work keeping it looking good.

I personally like the chevy. You can get it with just the bowtie but I prefer the Chevrolet across the front I think it makes it look tougher. I am looking at buying a 2020 in the next month or so and I would prefer the black bumper but that's the wt model (bottom of the line) and if I'm keeping this thing for however long it will last I want it to have the options I want. I like the GMC also but there's just little things that get me with that one. The reflectors on the fender flares I think looks crazy and pointless and the fact that you can't have a receiver hitch in with the 6 way tailgate was a fail fo GM in my opinion but to each their own. Anyways it's all the same [email protected]$$ drivetrain so that's why they make different models for guys like me I guess. Trust me they are not losing money in any way lol but I think I this thing looks awesome and I have only owned chevys with no major problems so if it's not broke dont fix it is my motto.

Put a set of 35X11.50s on the stock wheels. Never thought Id say 35s looked to small and cleared with ease on a GM stock 2500HD. Definitely looks a little better but if I had it to do over again, I would have went with 37X12.50s

I think the 35s look perfect. Maybe the 12.5s next time but I like it.

Not my truck but this is the cleanest 2020 I have seen. The black hides a lot of the design features I do not like.

Im glad you like it cause they need some sales. Was at the dealer the other day as a friend of mine works sales and said the initial hype and excitement has vaporized. They have only sold 2 units and those were pre-sales. No inventory has moved yet and they have several on the lot now. That being said I thought this one looked the best. And it actually was slightly better looking at it in person. I also agree that the fender reflectors on the GMC are a little strange.


Anyway,I wanted to post and win first 2020 Chevy HD pic in this thread. Lol

One of my guys just took delivery of a 2020 3500HD s/b cc in black. He put 35s on it. ( looks same as ShaneK210 pic above )
Dealer says can't adjust speedo to account for o/size tires. He figures about 7% out.
Any suggestions?
