    New Chevrolet Colorado - Most powerful in its class

    Might be the most powerful but I'm still not overly impressed with the looks.


    New Chevrolet Colorado

    Chevrolet’s new pickup is said to come with a force for the new 2014 line-up with improved performance, infotech and entertainment systems and the inclusion of new additional features.Both interior and exterior has had a little surgery to provide a sportier and more aggressive look. Its strong appearance, matched with its high performance and quality has set a new standard in the global car market.

    It may well be nice, but I wouldn't buy a Chevrolet. The Izuzu version should be a better option; resale, engine reliability (?), basically anything that Izuzu do differently to Chevrolet...

    Agreed, the Isuzu isn't a bad looking truck.

    Mits and Toyota look boring now, as does the Nissan. The Ford, as nice as it is needs to pull their finger from their arse which leaves the Isuzu. If i were to buy a pickup again i'd now choose Isuzu.

    do the people who buy vehicles for their aggressive look also fantasize about having helga strap on the plastic and fcuk them up the arse ?

    Vehicles should be first and foremost about reliability and fuel economy and/or power

    unless of course you are a woman

    ^True, but it's a man thing. I wouldn't buy but i would like a new 3.2 diesel with 200+ bhp and 400+torque in a new Pajero, instead of poncy turbo dependent systems.

    Some of us don't just fantasize, we do it!

    I'm not quite as bad as Captain America, and even though the 1.5 City goes well, it'd be nice to have a bit more... Around the ME, you see these 6.0, 6.7 and larger monsters. If petrol is almost free and you have long long roads then why not?

    In Thailand, 2.2D (I test drove the Ranger) is fine for most folks.
    How do I post these pictures???

    Well, that's it you are not going for a ride. Actually, that might not be a bad thing with the way K. Dee drives!

    Just ordered a TRD pick up but took the time look at Chevy and Ford,
    Ford was terrible, long wait for the wild track, long wait for any 3.2 model no sat nav. The only thing it had going for it was the size and looks.
    Chevy where nearly there with the 200 hp but the looks and cheap interior put me off.
    I had set out to buy a Ford or a Chevy but at the end of the day Toyota was the only one that offered the full package and quality and could deliver with in a few weeks.

    I consider these unecessarily massive vehicles a waste of the planets precious and finite resources.

    Ah, the minimalist approach to transport.

    Navi system, drive lights, auto trans, lot nicer interior, 4 door. 2+4 probably a list of other shit.
    I wanted a 3 litre and at first they said yes then said only in 4+4. Ok then I will get a 4+4 sorry no 3 litre TRD.
    Really wasn't keen on the Vigo but when stacked along side the quality and availability just isn't there in the others.

    Just got the wife to call and double check, the TRD comes with all same spec as the top model 4 x 4 except cruise control, different. To the specs on the link you posted.

    if you get an auto , cruise control should be standard - though I don't think I have driven anywhere in Thailand where I thought another car had cruise control on

    speed up slow down , speed up slow down - come up behind them with cruise control on and then over take as they just piss me off because they cannot maintain a steady speed
