    hold on here just a minute, I think things are getting mixed up.

    A GAS Colorado is over $40k, per the local paper adverts for our dealer.
    I have not even seen the diesel version locally, nor the price.

    The only SMALL Pickup I have read of is the Nissan, and it's $60k.

    And neither one is rated at pulling 17,500.

    My GMC 3500 HD is rated at a combo weight of 25,500, and get's 9 mpg (454 v-8)

    Just because Izusu makes the engine for the Colorado, don't make it the same as the NPR, nor it's engine,
    nor the countless ones in skid loaders.

    I stand by my statement that we have forgotten about higher mileage vehicles (what they used to get).
    My neighbors first generation GAS s-10 was getting 35mpg (granted it was 2wd).

    Colorado for Sale: 217 Colorado Pricing | Chevrolet

    I never said my truck was a Colorado . . . I was simply comparing towing economy to regular driving economy for my pickup. And if you think I am going astray with my comparison of two trucks . . . skid loader comparisons?

    Looks like the diesel Colorado MSRP with 4x4 Z71 package is just shy of $41k. (Comparison alert) Local ads for the full size Sierra indicate $12k off MSRP right now.

    My $250 dollar cargo van seems sweeter and sweeter when I look at new vehicle prices

    When you look at the total cost of ownership the new diesels really don't pay, gotta want a diesel. One friend has a 1/2 Dodge with the VM Matori engine and another has a Cummins Nissan. Both of them love their trucks, but dollars and cents says its not worth it. Same thing with the Ecoboost Fords, I would way rather have the stone reliable NA V8 than that twin turbo nightmare, unless you are trading in at 100k...

    Absolutely right - and when I am pulling my trailer up the Siskiyous Pass doing the speed limit passing all the 15 - 20 mph vans pulling a little U-Haul . . . and then having the cruise controlled 6spd Allison and compression brake effortlessly holding the speed limit down the other side on a 12 mile long average 6% grade - yes, I really like my diesel.

    As an aside, just cruising local dealer lot last night they seem to have like 40 full size Silverado pickups but maybe 2 Colorado's ! If that's because the Colorado is more popular, then any serious discounts are unlikely....but thought I'd ask...
    Is that VAAADEN of Beaufort by chance?!?

    After running my Colorado for 4 years, I noticed that they really didn't "replace the s-10"

    The s-10 was extremely popular, they are everywhere, the Colorado, not nearly so much.

    Never heard of Vaaaden, but it probably was Vaden GMC.

    I don't see how anybody could put 60k into any mid sized pickup. I bought a brand new 2015 Chevy 2500 4x4 for 39k out the door. Granted, it is the WT model, but still.
