Re: New Colorado?
The new V6 punches out a tad over 300HP, so what could be wrong with it, power-wise? Had several 4.3L V6s in the old S10 line and they were only around 190HP.
Had my sights set on a Colorado for this spring, after checking one out last fall. Only problem, they're still scarce.
Went with a leftover 2014 Silverado instead, when the "rebate" got up to $9500 and there were still plenty to choose from. No regrets. It gets much better fuel mileage than my 2010 Silverado Z71 did, has far more bells'n whistles. Averages around 16 in town, has hit almost 22MPG on trips. And goes like the wind, if need be.
Had my truck back for service a few weeks ago and they are still having problems getting any Colorados in. Quick as they get one, it's gone.
