i like the commercial it shows what our country was and is and that shows what it will be. "and thru it all theres been a chevy truck to depend on".

Pretty good advertising scheme if you ask me.

I think its the best looking truck they have put out since the mid '70s. I finally has a tough square ste look to it and doesent emulate that same dodge front end.

"If you want to make a statement that rings true with the majority of people, you are going to piss off some people. There are a lot of cynical people out there who don't react well to this, and a lot of people who will never get behind the wheel of a pickup.

"So let them get into their Volvo sedans and complain about this spot that they see as exploitive," he says. "This is not for them. The biggest risk you can take is to play it safe."

I totally agree with their logic here. Sounds like I'm going to like this commercial, I can't wait to see it now.

And people are talking about it.....that's the important part.

..i personaly think the trucks took a step back in the looks...but im wondering how you would make that truck look sporty for the SS version i know i know that the truck was never a power-house to compete with lightning/srt-10ram..but just drop a LS7 and make it awd and 2-wheel so everyone is happy!!!!!!...this truck would kill !!!!!!

Trucks should never be an "SS" its a **** truck! The Lightning and SRT10 were jokes and just stopgap measures until real performance cars could come out.

Its a truck and designed for hauling (not ass but stuff) and towing. Too many people are confused they think that a truck is a race car of a luxury car when its just a truck and should be outfitted and driven as such.
