As far as driver distraction, eating/drinking is still the #1 distraction that causes accidents even today. Smartphones didn't help the problem much either, but there's plenty to distract today's road filled with ADD drivers. Glad to see the advances in safety for both them and me as a possible victim to these distracted types.
it's call the Work Truck model. Look into it. Basically no features.
I agree with other posts here, the real improvement we are all waiting for is the interior. I don't mind plastics in use currently, but the comfort and usability is dead last, especially compared to the previous mentioned RAM trucks. I got to test a RAM truck the other day. Still prefer the road characteristics of the GM trucks, but the ride smoothness was noticeable in the RAM. However, the interior just simply blows the GM trucks away in just about every part of the inside you can point at. The seats are MASSIVELY more comfortable than GM. The center console is far more usable and thoughtfully designed (What the ____ happened the the center console in the GM trucks? It's all but gone!) And, of course the awesome display that's available on upper trims, no way that can go unmentioned. But, even small things like buttons and dials are just better in the RAM. Time to get rid of the shift stick GM, it's just time... I can only hope that GM wakes up in 2021 and makes a truck that competes rather than lands in 3rd place like it has done this year.

I still think truck owners would prefer a strong hybrid. Gotta have backup power sometimes. If it turns out all-electric, I can see aftermarket gas engine installations in the bed for additional utility out of the truck. No power to wheels from gas, but backup power for occasions that requires that extra effort. Truck owners have never been about small efforts.
Nargg replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI'll take the 11 y.o. spot!
The US and it's states are constantly providing low or no interest loans to small companies. So, basically your statement here was incorrect. GM was offered a zero interest loan, and did pay it off too. Early if I recall.
Nargg replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI miss the previous generation XRS styling. That was eye catching. the XTx line is quite boring, and dumbed down inside too. Sad.
Nargg replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomFunny, you think they will stop production because of you? Personally, I like the 1/2 GMC over the Chevy. But on the HD class, the Chevy looks far better. Looks like it means business.
Not too much of a shock after a new release year. Happens all the time. That and Toyota is full of themselves, and rarely give good discounts making them the worst deal you can get. Toyota is such a bad company.
Nargg replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI sat in one of these at a car show a month or so ago. It is VERY impressive interior wise. That back seat is better than any luxury back seat I've ever sat in. GM should take note, both on seats AND on technology. I was afraid the 12" screen would be overkill, but it's really not. The side buttons save it from being a mess. While you can control everything on screen, you don't have to as most high use items have a button beside the screen. Lots of thought on the design here. Small things too like plugs, and room in the console is far better than GM or Ford. However, quality complaints are already showing RAM is still far behind the other 2 on build quality. This video cracks me up. Check out the window trim issues:
Nargg replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomActually, I like the looks of the lower trim better. Like them both though. Can't wait to see them IRL.
Nargg replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomI've read through here, and boy a lot of you princesses need to get off your pumpkin and join the party. This truck looks mean and like means business. One of the best trucks I've ever seen out of GM.
Nargg replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomThat truck looks BOSS!!!! Love it, including the wheel wells. Wish they'd put those on the 1/2 ton. The front end looks like it means business. Awesome job Chevy!
