    Why in the world are they offing a 2.8L turbo diesel in this and not a suburban?? I don't know the last time I saw a truck with a center counsel shifter. (other than a manual trans)

    The 2.8L Dmax puts out about the same amount of power as the old 6.5L Detroit....

    I don't see one here. Every truck I have ever owned was column shift

    My wife's old 98 gmc jimmy was console shift. I hated it. It was ugly and just didn't feel "right" for lack of better way to put it. Looks just like the one in the photo above... I also see they no longer offer the 3.5 L5. I liked that engine. Anyone here know why they no longer offer it?

    Simple, the Holden Colorado and Isuzu D-Max (which this new Colorado is somewhat based off of) has an optional turbo diesel engine, GM didn't have to make an all new diesel for this truck. They simply recycled the diesel used in the other models and I'm certain that they had to improve its emissions.

    I would imagine that the console shifter is supposed to give the new Colorado a more sporty feel. I personally prefer a column shifter as it frees up more space in the console area. I would bet that the LS and LT version of the Colorado have a bench seat with column shifter.

    I agree with you about the sporty feel. I also agree that in that I prefer the column shifter because it frees up space. Heck, when I bought my yukon xl if I could have found one with a front bench with the fold up console like my silverado had I would have bought it. That is one more passenger seat. I would love to be able to seat 9!

    The Suburban has an additional lower trim level LS that up until I believe 2009 had a front bench seat like the Silverado LS and LT.

    Now the LS, LT and LTZ all feature bucket seats.

    The Avalanche LS came with a split front bench into, I think, 2011 (maybe 2012), my wife's cousin bought one (she has 5 teenagers).

    I just checked Chev.com, the 2013 Avalanche has a front split bench as an option on the LS level. The 2011 and the 2012 may also list it as an option (probably a no cost option).

    I just checked the Chevrolet and GMC website and for 2014 a 40-20-40 front bench is available at a $250 savings over buckets seats on the LS(Chevrolet) and SLE(GMC) Suburban and Yukon XL.

    To all those that haven't seen a console-shift truck, clearly you haven't been inside an F-150 in the past 8 years.

    Or a Toyota Tundra.

    The F-150 only has a console shifter on the FX2 or higher.

    The Toyota Tacoma.

    I could not find any column shifter on any model.

    Is this the same fate coming to the Chevrolet Colorado GMC Canyon?

    This may be the fate for all trucks soon. :(
