Really, those ebay lights? Definitely do not agree there. Clean and simple > excessive and ostentatious....

 

They gave a base model 22k truck the same headlights many luxury cars have, and now those same owners that have done that won't have to anymore. Not seeing the "weak" part. Guess you can't appease everyone. First they are weak and old school so people complain, now they are industry leading, people complain...

Yup... Those E-bay light are better IMO... Mainly because of the Day Time Running LED's... The 2016 design is.... Yup, you guessed it.... WEAK!

This is so weird, it is like when the 2014 k2xx's were debuted with similar comments. Now look at them.

Looks like if someone wanted to remove the front air dam it would be weird looking with that aluminum piece in he middle.

This thread goes to prove that opinions are like assholes, just not as useful. If you don't like it, don't buy it. :chevrolet:

This is much better than anything they have put out after the great styling of the GMT900's, they have stepped up their game and don't see it as weak at all...

So, if you don't like opinions, why did you post anything at all? Just saying....

I don't mind opinions at all. Just reminding folks of the obvious in the hope that some useful content can be added.

Ugh. Cmon Chevy! Listen to your customers and GET THAT FRONT END OFF THE GROUND! That is lower than most cross over SUVS and many cars. How are we supposed to do any work off road with a front end that is that low to the ground?

Styling is so subjective.
