The Colorado's a nice truck, but as big as it is, you might as well go with the Silverado. It needs to be a bit smaller.

I would like the Colorado more if they never axed the manual trans for the 5 cylinder.
A 4x4 Z71 5 cylinder 5spd Colorado makes my mouth drool.

It's good to know they realized it had no significant advantage before it was too late!
