Hmm, not sure how I feel about it, I think I am going to have to let the new design digest for a little bit,  I will always like the style from the late 80's -90's Chevy trucks

The Chevy is kinda meh to me, and not even worth capitalizing the letter m kinda way.

The GMC could teach the people who designed the current Superduty and that Nissan van thing how to make an ugly truck....................which I was hoping wasn't possible..............

What I want to know is when are they going to bring back the standard cab, 8 foot box, bare bones truck? Preferably with 4wd, V8 and an actual MANUAL TRANSMISSION with Granny Gear! Guess I'll just stick with my '55, which is much better looking anyway.

I agree. It almost seems as if they're trying to get some of that old style in there, but they just didn't do enough of it IMO...

Outside of the transmission part, you still can get the rest of that with the Ram Tradesman pickups! If you need that granny low first, you may need to look at the front drivers with the 6 speed autos, the one in my 200 has a 4.127:1 first gear and isn't even good for 20mph :P

Ahh, but even then the trick would be finding one on the lot. ;)  Not sure about your area, but around here, seems all the dealerships stock are extended/crew cabs, almost always with a 5'-6 1/2' bed and loaded with every doo-dad and goo-gaw they offer. Can't even get a standard cab shortbed without special ordering it.

From my understanding the reason why you can't get a manual transmission in pickups anymore is due to emissions requirements. Newer, more stringent requirements are very difficult to meet with manual transmissions as the vehicle's emissions output varies greatly with drivers.

 The numbers would be too low for that to even be a factor

Wouldnt that also apply to passenger cars as well, and just not trucks?

The real reason that manuals went to the wayside in full size trucks is that the sales were far too low. Even commercial use customers, who tend to be a cheap lot, opted for automatics, as many folks these days do not know how to drive one. Manual transmission operation isn't even taught in Drivers Ed anymore. It's something I have to put up with every day when a manual trans vehicle comes in, as out of the 9 people that work at the shop I work at (1 manager, 3 on the counter, 4 mechanics, and a stock room/oil change tech), only 2 of us know how to drive manual transmission.

Same thing applies to standard cab, longbeds. Great for construction companies, but since almost half of truck owners use them for hauling people, not "stuff", the days of plain jane, bare bones trucks are dead.

 

You can always swap in a manual trans, too, if you want one badly enough. There's no reason you can't customize the transmission to suit your liking, just like you can change the wheels and tires.

I'd have no problem ordering one the right way, although I'd go 2wd and save the money spent on the 4wd for a mess of sandbags and some good snow tires.

Might want to take a trip to Vassar, Michigan- Cook Chevrolet prides themselves on stocking what they call 'Plain Jane Pickups'. It's weird to me- once you get into the 'rural' areas, most of the trucks you see on the lots are the loaded versions, while dealers in big cities stock more of the strip-o models.
