2. It's pretty big

2015-Chevrolet-Colorado-002-medium

The Colorado is visually smaller than the Silverado, using more slopes and curves contrasting the larger truck’s hard lines, but in reality this midsize pickup isn’t much smaller than its big brother.

The longest Silverado, the crew cab standard box model, is 239.57 inches long in total length, compared to the Colorado’s 224.5 inches in crew cab long-box form. That makes this new truck just about 15 inches shorter in its longest form.

However, on the small end, the Silverado regular cab standard box is 205.57 inches long, while the Colorado crew cab model is 208.2 inches long, though in this case the Colorado offers a small backseat while the Silverado only has space for two captains chairs or a bench.

Height-wise, the new Colorado actually dwarfs the Silverado, with a total height of 78.9 inches (including the antenna) when fitted with four-wheel drive compared to the Silverado’s 73.80 inches in four-wheel drive trim. Though it may be taller, the Colorado is a full 5.7-inches skinnier than the Silverado.

So the new midsize truck is just a touch smaller than its big brother in most areas, though it is slightly larger than both the Tacoma and Frontier in almost all configurations.

    The truck is good and been on the market in most of the world for 2 years. America won’t get all the engine choices that are available and there are a few more modern trucks out there, but it does seem like a good one, just not sure it the “Rite” one

    THAILAND!? What is that country’s track record for this type of manufacturing? Any estimates on MPG with 4W in the various engine and trim combinations? And has GM figured out that stupid low tire pressure warning light?
