Chevrolet Unveils Colorado Show Truck
Boldly styled show truck previews next-generation midsize pickup
BANGKOK, Thailand - Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in advance of the Bangkok International Auto Show, where it is making its global public debut. The concept previews the next-generation Colorado midsize pickup truck, which will build on Chevrolet's strong truck DNA and award-winning heritage. The Colorado goes on sale in Thailand later this year.
"Thailand is the world's-largest market for midsize pickups, so this was the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado," said Susan Docherty, vice president, GMIO Sales, Marketing and Aftersales. "Trucks have been part of Chevrolet's core for nearly all of its 100-year history. The Colorado reinforces that heritage with expressive design, refinement and uncompromising capability."
The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-stance AWD chassis and rides on large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. Power comes from an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability.
"Although this is a show vehicle, the basic proportions and form convey the vision for the next-generation Colorado that we will bring to market," said Brad Merkel, GM's global vehicle line executive. "It reflects a stylized version of the new truck, one that takes into account rugged dependable truck capabilities for commercial use as well as sophisticated refinement for personal-use needs."
While the new Colorado was developed within GM's global product development organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it would meet local market needs. Roberto Rempel, GM's global vehicle chief engineer, lived in Thailand for several months during the truck's development, immersing himself in the market and observing how the Thai people use their trucks and the road conditions they experience.
"Pickups are instrumental in the vibrant Thai economy and owners take great pride in their trucks, which are used for both work and personal driving," he said. "These customers ask a lot of their trucks, so the powertrains and chassis must be very robust to earn their trust -- and that's exactly what we've delivered."

2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept
Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has
yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the
Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer
is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no
firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or
efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for
enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the
20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes
its way closer to production.
Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to
give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the
Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker
has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures
the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have
heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all
together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the
States sometime soon.
Chevrolet Colorado VS GMC Canyon Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Comparison
In this video I give a full in depth tour and comparison of the chevrolet
colorado and gmc canyon. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of these trucks while showing details, over viewing
of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicles themselves. I
also show the engines and the details of them, start them up and see how
they sound under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of these trucks
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicles.

2012 Ford Ranger Wildtrak
The all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak makes its global debut at the 2011 Geneva
Motor Show, a sporty compact pick-up that delivers impressive power and
safety, excellent fuel efficiency and significant capability. It exudes a
powerful presence bolstered by the latest in-car comfort and technologies.
The new global Ford Ranger boasts an extensive range of class-leading
"smart" features that make it easier, safer and more fun to drive than
ever. It also sports a unique Rear View Camera System - the camera image is
displayed in the rear view mirror - which dramatically improves visibility
and simplifies hooking up to a trailer.
Aiming to deliver class-leading safety, new Ranger utilises a whole suite
of technologies, including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), to keep its
wheels sturdily planted on the road under all conditions. Despite being an
enormously capable vehicle, the Ford Ranger is also fitted with
technologies such as satellite navigation and Bluetooth® voice control,
more commonly found on premium or luxury cars.
Building on Ranger's long-standing heritage of capability, the all-new
model extends Ford's credibility further, with selected European versions
achieving a best-in-class towing capacity of 3350 kg. Ranger models fitted
with the 2.2-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engine also have an
outstanding payload capacity of up to 1333 kg.
New from the ground up - with everything changed except its name - new
Ranger is the first commercial vehicle to be built under the One Ford
strategy as part of a global product programme, bringing together the full
engineering expertise of Ford around the world.
Designed and developed in Australia, Ranger will be offered as a complete
family of compact pick-ups with three different cab body styles, 4x2 and
4x4 drive trains, two ride heights and up to five series choices to suit
every pocket and market. It will be produced in Thailand, South Africa and
Argentina for more than 180 markets worldwide.
"From the introduction of the Ranger brand to Europe in 1997, the Ford
Ranger has been a major player in the European pick-up segment," said Jesus
Alonso, Ford of Europe's Director for Commercial Vehicle Marketing, Sales
and Service. "This all-new global model offers high-level technologies and
impressive efficiency and safety. We are starting a new chapter in the
Ranger success story."

Roadfly.com - 2011 Toyota Tacoma Road Test & Review
The 2011 Toyota Tacoma remains the preeminent midsize truck in its class;
dependable, reliable, and perfect for hauling cargo or equipment. Host Ross
Rapoport spent a week driving in the Tacoma and his impressions have
remained unchanged since his last review of the same truck.
Much like its competitors, the Tacoma's last redesign was the better part
of a decade ago, but has led the pack thanks to its variety of cab-styles
Tacoma has been dominate in all areas of the competition, from the
drivetrain to the interior and exterior aesthetics. For starters, we had
the V6 Tacoma, its engine is a 4.0 liter V6 that boasts 236 and an
impressive 266 pound feet of torque, and any body style can come in either
two wheel drive or four wheel drive. Gas mileage isn't great, you get 16
mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, but it's not exactly a surprise
out of a heavy work truck.
Our test Tacoma is capable of hauling over 3 tons, and its interior is the
most comfortable and roomy out of its competitors. Amenities are decent;
satellite radio, bluetooth, GPS, plenty of ample headroom, cupholders
galore. The backseat is incredibly spacious as well, our double cab was
more than capable of handling a few passengers. And as an added bonus, the
rear seats can lift open, revealing a work table underneath, a very handy
feature for onsite usage.
Some Tacoma buyers may find that the 4-banger engine that Tacoma offers
might be better suited towards their needs, but we preferred the stronger
of the two, and for our money, our tester the double-cab V6 4x4 Tacoma is
easily the best midsize truck you can buy on the market today.
