Chevy Colorado?

what the hell is this thing? i saw what looked like a hybrid between an s10 and a new silverado, and my buddy said it had Colorado on the side. is it really an in-between truck or closer to full size? weird.

Re: Chevy Colorado?

It's Chevy's new mid-size truck. I just wish they would have put the engine from the Trailblazer in it. 270 HP in a mid-size, that would have been cool.

Re: Chevy Colorado?

Yah, i second the engine opinion, they're running a 4cyl and 5cyl version of the inline 6, why not just offer the 6, and maybe the 5.3 v8 like the long trailblazer. Chevy built a truck more the size of a dakota, but without the same power options......

Re: Chevy Colorado?

True, but its an all new truck, why not use the newest 6 cyl instead of settling for a 5cyl? You can't have too much power......

Plus, the dodge dakota is avaiable with the 5.9 in the RT.

Re: Chevy Colorado?

To hell with the 5.9 Chevy should throw a 6.0 in the Colorado, or bring back the old 454 SS trucks from the early ninties and put them on the Colorado Base

Re: Chevy Colorado?

Yah, they should, im just using the 5.9 for comparison because the dakota seems to be the colorado's direct competition.

Re: Chevy Colorado?

I saw one the other night. And I think both this and the fullsize Silverados SHOULD HAVE A 5.7! In the far future, when my truck is dead... And I buy a truck, it will be a duramax... unless they started putting 5.7's in again....

Re: Chevy Colorado?

oh that hurt my eyes...why settle for Duramax when you could get a PowerStroke? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Ill give it to Chevy though, that Allison tranny is pretty nice. heres the rankings
1. PowerStroke
2. Cummins
3. Duramax
Not my opinion, tests have proven it, and they have also proevn that the same order goes for the 3/4 ton trucks' offroad ability.
