Yup....Colorado is 4 or 5 cyl inliners. And the 5 is a shitty engine anyway. the 6 in the trailblazers is where it's at! I want that in a colorado.

I think overseas, the Chevy small truck is an Isuzu rebadged. Whereas here, the Isuzu is a rebadged Chevy. lol. Not many of those trucks out there, but they're there.

The 2nd Gen S10 was rebadged as an Isuzu Hombre and ran only from 96-00. The 3rd Gen S10(Colorado 04+) was rebadged into an Isuzu i-series(i-280, i-290, i-350, i-3700). It's ALOT like Ranger and the B-series relationship in North America.




Why an Isuzu pickup is in front of a P-51 mustang is beyond me...




*That was almost all me up there! Can't believe I remembered all that crap. lol. Thank you wikipedia for the i-series engine sizes and years! lol.

Our Colorado looks just like the pics you posted.

I'd say the US Colorado/Canyon/I-series is a step bigger than the US Ranger, but a step smaller than the Toyota Tacoma or the Nissan Frontier. They're not that much bigger than the current Ranger here. I had a "skip school friday" day back in high school where I test drove all the compact/midsize trucks for the '05 model year. Colorado felt cheapest and least powerful, as well as least comfortable IMO...with the Ranger in 2nd. I HATE those 04-05 seats.

My mistake, the one I posted was the US version, this is the smaller Isuzu Chevy, they do look alike.

You can get Colorado's with V8's in them from the factory. Something I wish Ford offered for the Ranger. Just thought I would throw that out there.

Not anymore.... v8's only lasted one model year(2009). GM axed those after their bailout.

Well that sucks, but it makes sense I guess. They still say you can order them or whatever on the website, lol, perhaps they are made to order? lol.

How do the Colorados hold up? I really haven't looked into them that much?

I like ford better for quality reasons. The s-10s were good trucks. Chevy 4.3 was one of the best v-6 motors ever made in USA , but its the little stuff that while nag u to death about an s-10.

I'd buy a chevy, because there are so much more used parts available in junkyards...
