Hooniverse Asks: What should a heavy-duty truck look like?

Jeff Glucker December 4, 2018 Hooniverse Asks 47 Comments

A truck shouldn’t really be polarizing, at least with respect to its design. But that’s the age in which we live, where a pickup is judged on more than just its tow rating, fuel economy, and ability to get a job done. It’s not the fault of the truck, of course, but of designers attempting to upscale corporate design language onto a larger canvas. Sometimes it works, and others times it’s not that great.

The latest truck to get a fresh skin is the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. This heavy-duty workhorse boasts a turbodiesel V8 that cranks out a massive 910 pound-feet of torque. It’s three quarter angles are its best sides, but the face leaves folks divided. Personally, I’m a fan because it’s squared off “toughness” and I like that in truck design. At least for the full size rigs.
