I am not impressed with my mileage at all. Nothing near what the nice little window sticker claims.

der da derrrrr. lol. the tacoma takes the ranger thats for sure, especially the 6 spd 4 door, but the colorado....unless it has the V8 it sux. the I5 has sum power considering what it is, the 4.0 still has more power, just doesnt get the mileage the I5 gets. as far as interior the Tacoma again takes it, but the Ranger's interior is sooooo much better than the colorado!

i've never seen a colorado with a v8... and as far as the l5's go, my buddy is coming to town with his, chipped, we will see if it keeps up with my stock 4.0

and NO, the truck does not look better than a ranger... rangers are beefy... the colarado looks like a ****ing drawing some kid drew... nor is the interior anything compaired to my truck... which is all stock!

anyone ever notice this? chevy colorado, ****ty truck, chevy avalanche, ****ty truck, colorado avalanche, ****ty hockey team... coincidence? i think not!

they all lok like ****... IMHO, even the stock f-150 doesn't look as beefy as the ranger (size not considered) the ranger looks like a small version of the raptor...

toyota tacoma looks like it's made out of plastic and would break if you take it out of it's packaging... frontier looks like a honda element with a box behind it, the zr2 s-10 is the only one that even comes remotely close... and it's just too boxy to be beefy... and like i said before the colorado looks like one of those drawings that everyone had 5 years ago with the cars that were all cartoony with one huge wheel... hell they may as well have made it look like this...



btw, beefy means tough, when i think the word beefy, a bulldog comes to mind instantly... the dodge magnium and 300c represent this quite well... (to show that i am not insulting everything else because it's not ford)
bulldog

says it's a magnum, but i'm pretty sure it's a 300c

ranger (granted not a current model, but the only difference from this angle is headlights and grill)


and if you really want me to prove my point, i'll go take a picture of my truck that shows this...

No. They can't change the vin on a car/truck. They killed the B series due to the lack of sales.

The Canyon's are blah, but I like the Colorado's.

Especially the 4 door off road versions.

Turn stock:


Into this:


Hell, even this:


The only thing I'd make sure is that the front grille is colour matched and NOT chrome........*shutters* I really really do not like chrome.

The Taco's interior sucks. That was the main reason I didnt get a prerunner or TRD taco. The seatback are skinny as hell, and I can't stand the floor shift automatic. If I wanted a floor shift auto, I'd have stuck with a car. The doorpanels are crap. Might as well have just that plastic liner taped to the door.

The Taco interior just felt really really cheap.
