Please let it be Chevrolet.
Who can forget the days of square-body pickups, disgusting gas mileage, and car safety levels equal to that of riding a bear down a mountain? Back when the original square body Chevy C10 was rolling around, the world was a simpler place, free from the massive problems that plague planet earth today, such as the imminent collapse of major ecosystems, or a global pandemic. Thanks to one digital artist, we can now see what the current Chevrolet Silverado looks like with the square-body treatment. With the Silverado losing the sales race against its main competitor the Ram 1500, perhaps a redesign such as this one could claw back some sales for Chevrolet. Either way, this thing looks damn cool.
The designer chose the Chevy Silverado Cheyenne concept as a starting point. This concept was revealed at the 2013 SEMA show and makes for a good base for further modification. Since the car already has a faulty square shape, little was needed to bring it in line with the classic C10. The front end was tightened, the headlights squared off, and a subtle carbon-look front splitter was added to add some street cred. At the back, the designer changed up the taillight setup for a more contemporary look, and the obligatory fender flares add the overall angular look of the car.
This modern-day square body reminds us how good a simple and clean design can look, and brings back fond memories of the 2014 and 2015 year Silverado. The current Silverado isn't a bad-looking pickup, but some find its styling a bit too busy. The good news for those looking to buy a new one is that Chevrolet is offering massive discounts to lure in some end-of-year sales, so if there was ever a good time to get behind the wheel of a Silverado, it's now.
