naias 2013 gm locks us out of their new full size trucks

Any hopes of taking a look at the interior of GM’s full-size trucks were dashed, as GM briefly opened the doors up for pictures and then promptly locked them. Come on guys, what have you got to hide? Even Lexus had the doors of the $445,000 LFA Nurburgring Edition opened.

    Love the "Family Truckster" headlights! Well, if was so good ONCE... double the pleasure, right below it! Ugh.

      My first thought as well. Someone did a mirror about the centerline in CAD and called it a day.

    So, GM finally admitted that "Men-step" is useful and finally offered rear bumpers from now defunct Avalanche. (Looking at the picture of a blue truck). They would not have this problem in a first place if they would just drop a ride height by about half a foot... and I'm 6'4".

      I remember when the Avalanche was first released and had the step cut into the rear bumper, I thought that was an excellent solution. What bothered me is why it took them (12?) years to put it on their other production pickups! Of all of the Howie Long commercials, the man step one was the worst. Most of the other ones made me laugh, but bagging on the man-step was lame, IMO. Especially when they had a better idea (get it?) already in hand...

  • Allamericanred Interesting that as a car design nut that hates most American Suv designs that I think it is a pretty good design that stands apart but is not odd. The color really impacts how it looks to me. Some just do not work
  • NormSV650 I had a 2014 Vsport back in the day. It have a quiver feeling over some bumps in turns. Currently have a 2018 CT6 it is very solid and a great driver's car for the size.

  • MaintenanceCosts I saw my first IS500 out in the wild today (a dark-grey-on-black example) and it struck me that it was much more AMG-like than this product. (Great-looking and -sounding car.)
