    I like it. Looks differant than every other largecar on the road. Looks like a PT crusier all grown up.

    I like the retro look coming out in vehicles, and this one is no exception. I just read an article about this truck, the design is a throwback to the '36 or '38 pickup, I don't remember which year. It had a grill very similar to the style here. IH is claiming a 4% to 10% improvement in fuel economy over all other brands due to the aerodynamic styling.

    The lines are interesting, but it's too dolled up with chrome for my tastes. Might look good if they toned down the chrome to black. :beatsme
