These just popped up on MSN.com/auto:

Ranger Designed and engineered in Oz. Like it.

Silverado More Robotruck front end. Not sure about the pronounced sweep off of the front wheel wells, need to see it in person but not crazy about the look.

Interesting reaction for me as I'm a GM truck guy. What do you think?

When I see the first Silverado pic, I thought it was a Ford. Is GM going with the mentality of if you can't beat them join them?

The Silverado looks like a Tundra and F150 had a baby. And the white WT trim level really looks like a Ford. I'm also not a fan of the side view mirrors. Mount them on the window and make them bigger!

The Ranger looks cool, I like it as much as I do a Canyon/Colorado but the interior really looks awesome. Ford interiors lately have looked really nice I think.

Cool Corvette track car in the 2nd Silverado pic. Agree about the Ford look.

It looks like ford and GM made a pact where the ranger looks like a colorado and the silverado looks like an F150.

I like the idea of the 2.3l ecoboost in a truck. That engine seems to have an ideal powercurve for a small pickup

I go to Mexico reguarly so I have seen the Ranger countless times. It looks rather fragile. Just wait until Toyota decides to bring the Hilux and Nissan brings the NP300 and crash the compact ute market

The chrome front end on the blue LT at the show reminds me of the 99-00 style front end. The openings in the front end dump into the wheelwell and according to GM account for a decent aero advantage. The brown high country and the red trailboss were the only ones that you were allowed to look inside or sit in.

Too bad they didn't make the NR (New Ranger) in Aluminum.

I recently sold my 2003 as the winters here in NE PA were not kind to it.

Is it just me or are all the full size trucks more or less starting to look the same?

I guess weekend warriors like the Urban Assault Vehicle look.

I've driven the UK version of the Ranger with the diesel. It's a great truck, even thought he steering wheel was on the wrong side! However you know why Ford said there "wasn't a market". Like the Colorado/Canyon, it's pretty close in size to the full size trucks, and the stickers are close or even more too. The fleet business for the C/C, Tacoma, and even the Frontier is pretty strong, and too much to walk away from though.

I think back though when I bought new in 1987 a Ranger reg cab, 2wd, 2.3 4 cyl, 5 spd, and air, out the door for $6500. My first new vehicle purchase.

The Ranger doesn't look as bad as the rumors made it sound. Looks like it will compete well with the Tacoma size and feature-wise.

The Silverado is one ugly truck. Ever since 2005 or so they have been getting uglier every year.

I still think that in the early to mid 2000s both Chevy and Ford had some really nice looking full size trucks. Now it is all about who can have the biggest chrome grill and emblem.

Both look really nice. I think the Chevy looks like a Chevy.

I'm not a GM guy but the new Chevy isn't a looker.

I'm not feeling the '19 Ram 1500 either...
