:rolleyes:
I've got a 2020 GMC Sierra with the 6.2 engine. My hood is what I would term "normal" as there are no (air scoops/grille slots) on it.
Yet I notice some late models seem to have different hood shapes/scoops in them, etc. Just trying to understand what those hood styles mean?
Does that mean they have a different engine or maybe diesel and that is why the scoop

Anyone know:unsure:

Are referring to the difference in hoods on the 1500 vs 2500?

:oops:
Maybe that is it. I can't tell while they are going by in the opposite direction. But seems you are telling me that the 3/4 ton (2500) has that extra gap in front of hood. I have noted different hoods on the late Chevys too, Suppose that is also due to 1500 versus 2500. Years ago, the side of the hood had a 10 for a 1/2 ton, a 20 for a 3/4 ton and a 30 for a one ton.
So now they just use a different hood design it seems.:unsure:

IIRC, the diesels will have a functional hood scoop, pretty sure that’s what you’re seeing on the red truck in the pic above.
