    Chase's GMC Krag

    I feel that GM really needs a competent Compact pickup truck; definately along the lines of the Full-Size offerings. I also believe that a compact pickup could definately do well, as I see a lot of old Rangers running around my parts. Not everybody needs or wants an enormous pickup. Plus, Ford doesn't seem to be doing anything with the current Ranger.

    I would like to see GM move their truck offerings all to one dedicated brand: GMC. This might at least be able to keep the brand alive.

    So, without further adieu, may I present the GMC Krag!

    Its nice. I like.
    It kinda reminds me of the Denali concept but more like a 2dr pick up.
    Great job!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I'd rock it. I like the short overhangs like a H2. Idk about the square wheel openings though.

    Guys, there's only one reason why the roads aren't full of Colorados/Canyons.

    Price.

    At the height of rebates the max (I believe) on S/T trucks was $1500.

    On the C/K's it was either $5500 or $6000 PLUS dealer incentives.

    Few people are going to pay the same or more for a mid size truck as a full size truck. The dealers know this, and they are not going to stock the smaller truck in any volume.

    No stock equals no choice for the consumer=low sales.

    Plus, I wouldn't say that they are the most appealing trucks out there. They feel dated already, and their styling doesn't really make people think, that is pretty cool, I'd love to have one!

    That's different. I really like the retro cab, low roof, and muscular styling. The back looks awesome from what I can tell too, but the front end looks too blunt and boring IMO.

    Good job, chaseypoo!


    It's balanced and distinctively GMC. It's masculine without being cartoonishly over-the-top like a Hummer.


    I'd like to see what a Crew Cab variant would look like...

    Again, thank you everybody! Looks like this one is being received better than the 9-5 that I drew. Honestly, it doesn't look too bad in person!

    To the comment on the square wheel wells, I do understand that at times they can appear sort of goofy, however, I do find that round wheel opening in square fenders look even funnier!

    I will say that it is definately more concept than production, I also ran into a slight issue when I was drawing it where the side's perspective changed just slightly, making the beltline higher, and the roof lower...

    I am his Chaseypoo and there is absolutely nothing you can do to take that away from me!

    I keed, I keed... sort of
