    NO Idea

    This is a small step up from the base Colorado

    I was going to wait till next year to buy one but the deal was pretty damn good

    If you look at retail prices this is 12 grand cheaper than any other light truck in the segment for what you get

    You just cant get a crew cab 4x4 for under 40 grand unless you buy a chinese built truck

    The only other brand doing deals like this at the time i looked was VW with the Amarok which was very very competitive and finished nicer inside

    The thing is i couldnt fit in the thing

    The Amarok has the largest tray but loses out in the cab

    I'll let you know how it goes on the trip i'm expecting it to get some decent mileage numbers

    Nice. You can really see the family DNA parked next to the Cappy.

    In a different parallel universe, would a VF Crewman Cross 8 have been a preferred option, or are you in need of a serious 4x4 ?

    Hey I've noticed a few NSW regos with the dealer logo on the actual plate recently. Is it a sticker, or actually part of the plate ? What if you don't want it ?

    Yeah it would have been ok

    Just need to be able to get into places that a normal car or Ute just cant get to

    A few weeks ago we took the Captiva and towed my mates boat because his Crewcab was written off

    Just getting there and then doing simple things like collecting firewood and launching the boat was the tipping point for me

    A FWD biased SUV just doesnt cut it where i go and i want to be able to do more

    If the mooted VE Based Crewman did actually get built i'd probably have one instead as it probably would have managed ok

    Still happy with the Collie though it's going to get us places we need to go

    Yeah it's actually a stamped plate with the dealer logo in paint not a sticker

    I guess if you dont want it you could say so its never came up for me

    My mate that wrote off his Navara bought another one through the local Ford dealer and he had to go get new plates cause he didnt want the Blue Oval on his truck

    Same guy looked at a Ranger but like me just couldnt stretch to near 50 gees and just couldnt live with a Ford in his driveway LOL

    Congrats on a great looking truck! The Colorado just destroyed the Tacoma in a recent comparison test, so I say you made the right choice.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    The only vehicle i didnt test drive was the new HIlux it was about a week too late for me to order in time for my trip

    However i think they will still be overpriced and underdone
