And I agree on the fender marker lights. They are becoming more regular on vehicles, but those look awkwardly placed. Besides, I prefer simple and that's 4 more unnecessary light bulbs and wires, years from now.

Do the gas engines get hood scoops for 2020?

I’ve preferred the looks of the GMC over the Chevy for some time. The lights on the fenders would take some getting used to.

No, it was a Duramax. Not sure if the gasser gets the hood scoop.

Until they start making tires square or octagonal, I’ll take my wheel wells round, please.

I've been a GM guy my whole life, but I think the Fords are the best looking trucks, by far, right now.

All the 20's have the hood scoop regardless of engine. Functional on the oil burner, cosmetic on the gas.

Not a fan of the looks. Wheel wells and front bumper looks funky.

Thats too bad. Should have left it off the gasser if thats the case.

I did not know that the gasser gets the hood scoop. I agree that should be left to the Duramax where it is functional. I assume it adds some complication to the manufacturing process to have two separate hoods for the HD's. However if your paying the extra 10K or whatever the cost will be in 2020 for a diesel, I like the idea of having hood being a little unique. Having the induction hood that is not functional on the gasser, is gimmicky/poser like.

The only thing cosmetically I don't like are the reflectors or lights above the wheel wells.

How close did you get to it, did it have a manufacturer plate? I cannot remember seeing the marker lights on the wheel moldings. Could be an export vehicle.

Never mind. Looked at them on the GM website. They do have them. I haven’t really looked at them without their camo.
