It is very concerning.

The new dodge truck is absolutely beautiful. Hard to imagine GMs sales do not tank after this.

The Camaro grill looks ok on a black Camaro.

The Silverado HD grill is supposed to look industrial - like a piece of machinery - why I don't know -but that was wat they were going for.

FWIW I like the side and rear of the new Chevy truck... it's massive. I also understand the industrial design, but it just looks giant and robotic.

I agree that the new Ram is gorgeous.

Yes. GM design can be great. It can also be so out-to-lunch you can't believe it. And you're right. So often with GM, I scratch my head and say "WHO approved this?"

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think they both look good, and I am completely brand agnostic. If anything, I've always leaned more toward Ford and Chrysler/Jeep products on the domestic side.

I am a big fan of the latest Camaro but I am completely put off by at least one of the new fascia’

I generally don’t follow design trends. I recently saw a C7 that I thought had a hideous aftermarket nose put on it. To me it was grotesque looking. Turns out I was looking at a brand new ZR1.

I believe if Chevrolet built industrial air conditioning condenser units they'd look exactly like the nose of that truck.

The Camaro looks ok to me. Not attractive but not hideous in my opinion. That truck though..........That's a face even a mother couldn't love.

The front grille area of the new HD Chevy truck is hideous, the side & rear views are ok, looks like it sits higher than previous models. As for the Camaro, Chevy hasn't sold a nice looking body style since the 2nd gen cars imho

I dont the Camaro looks and more importantly it's a really good drivers car. That HD truck front on the other hand, wow, its is not attractive even for a truck.

They went from a good looking truck to that? I thought the 1500 face lift was bad... and honestly the dodge in my opinion ain't too good looking but for once it looks the best of the three and that's pretty sad to say for me...

Honestly the camaro looks the same to me though...

That new truck front end is just horrible. It has elements of the Aztek to it. How the hell does that get approved?

I think it's safe to say they have been heavily affected without Welburn at the helm...
