    Default New 2023 Chevy Colorado

    I owned a 2019 Colorado and quite liked it. This new truck looks worlds better in and out. Lots of great midsize truck options out there now.

    Truck looks great. Interesting that they're going with only one engine option, I guess they're not worried about everyone buying base model and just tuning it to hit the HO tune?

    Probably has GM's new electrical architecture, it started with the C8 then CT4 and CT5, V's and Blackwings.
    It hasn't been cracked yet even though the C8's been out for awhile, they are essentially not tune-able at the moment.

    The high horsepower turbo C8 builds you can find on YouTube are running a piggy back ECU that tricks the stock ECU to see what they want it to see, not nearly as simple the flash tunes people have been used to.

    They're certainly big, but I don't know if they are the BEST I've tasted.

    Cool little truck but I see no reason why not to just go full-sized.

    I believe the prevailing line of thought here is
    a) up front cost
    b) fuel cost
    c) not everyone needs 2,000,000 lb towing capacity

    In reality, there should be WAY more mid size trucks on the road if everyone bought them for what they'd actually use them for

    Not a fan of the seating position in mid-sized trucks, plus they ride too rough. But I agree with your points.

    Fair, I haven't ridden in a mid size for ages. I didn't think any of the fleet f150s / rams / silverados i've rented over the past few years rode amazing but maybe mid size is even worse!

    Wouldn't mind the ZR2 version of the new one for sure. Out of all the daily's my ZR2 was definitely something I liked having a fair bit.

    Truck is a very generous term for the Odyssey Ute.

    Truck is also a very generous term for what most poseurs need them for

    Better to have, and not need, than to need, and not have.

    The big truck vs small truck argument is so tired. You don't save much money or fuel going smaller, so just buy whatever you want.

    I think people in general should buy what they want.

    I have had heavy duty trucks, and half tons. I'm in a half ton now. Considering going smaller. Just always annoyed when these discussions end up with judgemental bullshit.

    Half tons are massive now, also most mid sized truck ride better than their brand equivalent half tons on rough roads (unloaded). Probably also a 20-30% savings in fuel… unless it’s a ram rebel, then we’re talking half or even better economy, especially in the city. God damn are those bad on gas
