Road Test Review: 2009 Chevrolet Colorado V-8

A lot of street truck enthusiasts know the formula. Take a compact truck, put in a V-8, lower and tighten up the suspension, then re-tune the steering and brakes. If you did all that, you’d end up with something like the 2009 Colorado ZQ8. As an added benefit, you’d have a truck that happens to carry and tow more than any Colorado until now. And it would be a blast to drive.

For 2009, Chevy has done exactly that, engineering a complete character transplant for the Colorado. By upping the ante in power and handling, the 2009 Colorado becomes an engaging sport truck, and potentially, a truck to consider if you like full-size power but don’t really need full-size space

Sounds like Chevy did a heck of a job with this Colorado http://www.fomoconews.com/forums/images/icons/icon14.gif

actually ^that^ is closer to my idea of an F-100
& hope the Ranger will be the King of the 4-to-6 cylinders
