Although I don't particularly care for square wheelwell shapes, I could probably live with them. I suppose I did for 2 of my 80's Chevy trucks and also my albeit toned down flare 02. What really gets me or turns me off about the current and new Chevy's is the flares. I don't get it nor understand why they do this? Dodge doesn't do it, I don't see that Ford really does it and Chevy never did it until the 07 model came out either. What gives? The current truck has the whole bed flared way out and the front fenders also. It looks just awful. The next truck it looks like they didn't flare out the whole sides but they still flared the metal around the openings like the Terrain quite a bit. Like some sort of cartoon exaggeration of the wheel opening. I just don't understand why GM does this? They never did before. I think it just looks terrible. That and the combination of the round wheelwell shapes make the Ford and Dodge trucks so much more appealing. It's the flare's that kill these new Silverado's for me though. Then they have to widen the front end to accommodate the fender bulges which in turn makes the truck very wide and porky. The old Chevy's were always so clean lined and perfect in their design. The 07's and up look like some kid who played with Transformers and read one too many comic books was in charge of their design. I was at Lowe's this weekend and in the parking lot were both a current Silverado and an Avalanche. The Avalanche looked SO nice on the sides compared to the Silverado! Why didn't GM use those sides for the Silverado? It would have looked like all of the old Chevrolet trucks from the past instead of some bizarre creation. And why did they stick with this bizarre obsession? Why not just make the truck clean and mean on the sides liked they used to do them instead of looking like a comic book character turned into a truck? I think it really hurts their market share and sales to do things like they have been.
