    Make sure there aren't any millennials hiding in back, going oooh! and ahhhh! and, now, giggling about dat chibby! I've seen them on TV a lot, they're kinda like a Zombie Apocalypse movie, but they don't seem as smart.

    Re: Bought a new runaround truck

    The Duramax is nice. It's got decent power (it's no V6 though), it's like an old school diesel it shakes the truck at idle and has a pretty nice (well that's debatable, but I like it) clatter under acceleration, but it's quite when cruising along at highway speed. I'm hoping it will live up to the 27 MPG Highway they claim. GM also seemed to get the trans tuning right on these, it doesn't hunt around for gears and shift harsh like my 6 & 8 speed full-sizers did.

    I just have to be a smarty and say this: Now you just need a red Dodge, then you would have one from each and be patriotic too.

    Nice truck. Looks great unlike the last generation Colorado which was horrible.

    Did you look at the new Honda Ridgeline?
    The way Honda builds vehicles, it's almost as capable as an F-350, and more reliable.
    Soccer moms dig it.

    The seats are pretty comfortable, headroom is almost as good as the Sierra, my legs do hit the steering wheel as I'm getting out.

    I don't foresee a Dodge being in my future, but you never know.

    It was a GM 'Brass Hat' vehicle. It was on this dealers lot for a little less than a month.

    No, did not look at a Ridgeline. I looked at a couple brand new Colorados and Canyons, a new Tacoma and this one.
