Should the new Colorado be made 3/4 size?
I'm pretty sure the days of the true compact pickup are over in the US, at least for now. The Colorado was certainly bigger than the S-10, but it it big enough? The designers at GM have already rolled out the new version of the Colly in Southeast Asia (where it's a huge seller in places like Thailand and the Philippine islands. But will that cut mustard in the US?
My brother-in-law has a regular cab Colorado, and I can hardly fit into the thing I'm afraid my knees are going to break if we hit a pothole.

That is absolutely an terrible looking vehicle. It look like something toyota would build doesn't even look like something chevy would build. Chevy is getting worse every year on the body styles of their vehicles. Maybe im to much against the new body styles but I want a good looking truck that performs well and not a space looking vehicle that gets 50mpg that you can't do damn thing with but drive...not what i consider a truck2000 Chevy Silverado 4WD Classic

Looks better than the Colorado and Canyon. Its the front of an Acadia on a truck. Seems legit to me since they haven't done a Blazer in years that that was the suv version of the S10. I like it especially since I hate the Colorados and Canyons.

I'm just an obs addict i hate anything with the new body style. I like it until 07 1/2 or whenever they switched to the current body style. they just look weird i like the old boxy bodies not these big rounded off bodies

I like my Colorado, but I wouldn't mind if it had more room in both the cab and bed. If we continue to have high fuel prices, I'll continue to have to find a way to have a truck and also be able to have a steak every once in a while.
