To each their own as they say. I like the look of the Silverado and the Sierra both. Hate the F150's, and don't really trust Dodge's at all. At first glance the styling of the new GM's dont look a lot different, but they made some pretty good styling changes to the sheet metal and the front end.
And the interior is completely redone. I bet we see something similar from Toyota, mild redesign of the exterior and complete interior redesign.

I'm crossing my fingers that it won't be something atrocious. A lot of companies are going into an ugly/odd direction. I hope Toyota doesn't completely box it out or make it too futuristic. Please Toyota, don't hurt us!

Portland Auto show is on (Oregon) very small in comparison to Detroit or LA but it was a chance to jump into the current offerings from Ford, Chevy, Dodge. I was especially excited to see one of those haloed Raptors. In the word of those iconic east coast mobsters "They got nothin"
I admit I never really considered other trucks for a variety of reasons but this really gave me a chance to really look. TO ME each of the big three offerings lacked major things, from outside looks to poor dashes, flimsy materials, poor workmenship. I never realized the Avalanche bed cover works. They have rails on each bed side that extend into to bed at least 5 inches on each side. You're giving up a huge amount of working space. And those built in bed glove compartment things on the dodges, geeze lots of bed space gone to make that work. And that Raptor was really nothing except a pig in a dress. Basically the same dash, fancier grill big engine, off road add ons. AND they are crazy expensive. The one I was looking at was almost $60k.
No buyers remorse for me!

I am excited to see what may come. I just bought my Tundra, but if they bring a diesel into the mix and it is financially feasible I will have it. Guess I have to wait a bit longer on my new lift to make sure its not money thrown out the door. I am betting a facelift like the Tacoma got though. If that is the case, it would not be worth it to start over to me.

I am really hoping for a diesel. I have pondered about getting a Powerstroke since it is the only diesel I trust.
I'd like one too, although they aren't made by International anymore (good or bad, not sure)
The other thing that sucks about diesels these days is the crippling and $$ exhaust systems. A guy told me last week he was going to get an F350, but they said to completely redo the exhaust system (he drives a lot of miles) it would be over 6k.

chevy, gmc crew cabs still have no rear passenger room. CREWMAX is huge,,,,
The 2014 Chevy/GMC crewcab has more room in it than the 2007 to 2013 models. It still does not compare to the Crewmax though.
I got to see a 2014 Silverado at the Fort Worth Stock Show this last weekend. It is better than before. It still wont compare to the Tundra.
