    Default V8 Colorado/Canyon

    I noticed today that GM has decided to wait until the 2009 models to put the 5.3L V8 in the small trucks. I guess I'll just have to wait!

    Any reason you like the small trucks over full size?

    I am interested in a Colorado, due to the fact that I bought a new motor home w/8.1L Chevy & Allison. I have been pulling my '04 crew cab Z71, but I am just above my weight limit. I'm legal, but with a 6pack of Cokes, I'm overweight! The smaller truck should be just about right. The article was on "Autoblog" a couple of days ago. Good lucik!
