    Default Chevy Colorado pickup ~ Your Thoughts

    I'm curious what people think about this truck. Is it any bigger than the old s-10?

    The colorado was designed from the ground up to be an entirely new truck. It's quite an improvement over the s-10, who's design went back to the early 1980's. My brother in law is thinking of buying one, so we will go take a look and will give a review in the next few weeks.

    Has anyone here driven one/bought one? We'd love to hear from you if you have.

    My parents just recently bought me a 2005 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab LS to replace my 1997 GMC Sonoma Ext Cab.the room in the colorado has way more than the Sonoma.If you get a Colorado Ext Cab,it might have a little more room than the S-10s and Sonomas.And the ride is smoother than the S-10s but its not a huge difference.The Colorado also has a good bit more power and the gas mileage is better than the old 4.3L v6.The average on my Colorado is 20+mpg right now since i do alot of highway driving and my Sonoma was around 17 or 18mpg.I also like the traction control which performs a whole lot better than the stock rear ends on the S-10s.and when in slick conditions such as mud,the right rear tire on the old S-10s would only spin a good bit of the time.every now and then both would spin equally.And you can also get things like XM Satellite Radio and other small features.So in my opinion,Colorados and Canyons are worth it.But everybody has different opinions so i recommend taking a test drive and checking your options.But if you ask me,go for a Colorado or Canyon

    Awesome, so it sounds like you really like your colorado. That's great.

    Default On my second Colorado/Canyon

    Late 05 I bought a Colorado Reg cab 4x4 LS. Nice truck, nicely appointed and excellent in the snow. In northern VA we get snow, but there's no town crew to plow (unlike where I'm from in New England) so you're basically on your own. I found I was parking my 04 Mercedes C-Class and driving the Colorado more. Maybe it's the whole Virginia red-neck thing (I listen to country music now too). Recently, I ended up selling both the Mercedes and the 05 Colorado and buying a loaded 06 Canyon crew cab. I'm very happy with my decision. I prefer the looks of the Canyon over the Colorado - although most will say you can barely tell the difference.

    I've had my '07 Reg Cab LS for about 5 weeks now and I love it. Coming from a Nissan pickup, it is a HUGE upgrade. Engine is strong and the thing has plenty of oomph.

    Just purchased an 07 Colorado regular cab. Had it about a week. Used to have an S-10 the colorado feel alot bigger. I have two 17yr old son and all three of us fit in the front (only) seat, although it is tight.

    I to just recently bought my Rado. It is alot bigger than the S-10 I had, while I wish I could have kept it (it was a real SS S-10), I am really enjoying my Rado, I only hope it holds up as long as My S-10 did.

    The sales on this truck were decent, but I expect they will increase with the new model.

    THOUGHTS?
