    Next-Generation Chevy Colorado Concept

    Here's my idea for the next-gen Colorado, courtesy the Chevy Orlando concept (originally done for the Orlando Contest, but whatever).



    Let me know what you all think, this is the first time I've attempted a chop.

    If the Roof and Beltline was lower, It'd be perfect, but other than that, it looks really good.

    I think it would do well, but as a true truck lover.....I can't like it. It's so sad that GM can't sell a decent truck. If this came out, people might jump ship from Honda and look at GM again. So sad!

    Pretty good but I would stretch the bed and lose the pimp wheels.

    Thanks for the input, folks!

    I only made this one view, but I figured a good way to catch CAFE would be to beef up a unibody. You would still get the pickup bed, and some towing, but you would also get good mileage. Also, the price would be lower than the current model's.

    first rule for a tow vehicle is you need mass and length. otherwise you are limited to tiny trailers as the trailer starts to wag the dog if the tow vehicle isn't heavy enough.

    but i still like it.
