I am a Colorado fan( even a member of ) and always have been. But there is one thing that I have never understood. Why did GM not put the 4.2 I6 in the colorado when it came out in 2004, as it is little more then the truck version of the Trailblazer SUV? The 4.2 would have greatly improved the capabilty and both vehichles use basicly the same transmission( or exactly the same, I'm not sure ) So why did GM cut it down a cylinder and go with what is now the 3.7 5 cylinder? It doesn't make much sense to me. Can anybody else help me out?

the 6 banger is a inline engine, it's 2 long to fit.
GM should have made the colorado the same size as the S10 and at least offered a sporty 350hp + v8 version.
