The tahoe/suburban looks the most handsome.

Edit: When the diesels come out, they will surely kick ass.

I went for the Silverado/Sierra purely for the availability of 3/4 and 1 ton HD Sierra models. If the Tahoe was available in 3/4 ton with the 6.0 I would've voted for that because I find the Tahoe most attractive and it's a nice size but I can't suffer a half-ton truck.

So the Suburban is just a Tahoe with a longer wheelbase?

Basically, but the Suburban also gets the 5.3 liter V8 standard and the 6.0 as optional while the Tahoe gets the 4.8 liter V8 standard and the 5.3 optional and no 6.0 available. Also, the Suburban is available as a 3/4 ton and the Tahoe isn't.

Silverado for sure. I saw it and wanted it immediately. It's a butch looking truck, and probably the best currently available.

The diesel truck twins (Silverado & Sierra) for me, the rest are weak poser-mobiles.

Can we have another vote for being circumcised by a rusty spork? Because I am leaning that way right now.

Is this even a necessary category for us to vote on? I mean, how many of us even like these vehicles?

I prefer to be thorough and cover everything eligible, even if it's not what we typically go for.

Fair enough, but we're an enthusiast site, not a national newspaper or auto-mag. Why bother with vehicles we never talk about/want to talk about?

Just my .02, of course.
