    Default 2009 V8 Colorado/Canyon

    I read this article on motortrend.com;There is gonna be a 5.3. for 2009. Does anyone know about this I have been waiting since the first came out, for this. What about the cylinder shutdown technology. I think that it would be an awesome package. http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...ook/index.html

    Sounds great, doesn't it? I sure would like to see what the gas mileage could be with the V8. If my '04 gets as good as it does, the lighter Colorado should really do well. Only time will tell!

    That thing would be great fun!! The only problem would be having to shell out for new rubber at the end of every summer!

    One just arrived at the dealership I work at. they get about 15, 18 gas mileage. It looks amazing the motor barely fits in the engine bay!

    yup its true. i just got on a local dealer website to build a new Collie and there was the 5.3 option. Now I can find all the parts for the LS3 swap through GM.

    It's a done deal!
    Check out 2009 Colorado or 2009 Canyon for particulars and prices.

    A 300HP Colorado/Canyon, can you spell S-W-E-E-T ?
    Are we having fun, yet?

    Drove one of these Saturday, let me just say this, It is a rocket, the accelaration is awesome, with a little performance work, it would be really fast. i can't wait to see what the aftermatket does with this, hopefully the Colorado/Canyon will finally get the recognition it has been missing, my only wish is GM should have done this from the beginning and why don't they offer this in a reg cab with a manual trans option.

    I just got my Canyon V8 last night, it was raining all day so I had to take it easy. On the way home I stopped in a vacant parking lot and LIT THEM UP!!!!! This thing is gonna be a ball to drive!!!

    Today I was able to get on it in good weather and it really does haul a$$! I had an Colorado with the 3.5 and this is a whole different animal!!

    GREAT JOB GM!! Thanks for making my truck!
