    So this is a write up of the new Colorado, should be something samialar to the Isuzu.


    Wonder what powertrains will come out in the Isuzu in SA.

    Editor seemed a bit harsh.

    interior looks same as new 2012 chev trailblazer also hitting our shores soon

    im starting to think we will also see the chev colorado soon seeing that it shares the trailblazer chassis and drivetrain and is to the trailblazer what the hilux is to the tuna

    and the 2012 colorado is damn fine looking van ! or am i confuculated is the new dmax also based on the Colorado ? Not too many years ago ford/mazdas had two
    very similar looking models on the market based on the same thing, maybe chev / isuzu will do the same ?

    Manny was discussing the lengths of load bins but in total you can load less, although limited to a ton.

    i do not think it will be long before isuzu wil break away from GM in terms of dealerships. This means that Isuzu(Commercial) will be on their own sharing platforms and Motors with Toyota and that will leave GM free to bring the Colorado as their 1 ton pickup with the trailblazer.

    Would you sell the Rubicon for a Trailblazer? I'm asking because pretty soon I have to choose between the 2

    sjoe thats a hard one

    i went from a raider to ranger to landy to wrangler and the wrangler is by far the best ive owned, just so much fun to drive (especially with the top down) and then also the fact that its by far the most capable.

    i do a lot of km's so was looking around at whats out there to trade the rubi in the next couple a months before it looses too much value (km/for the year model) and also i used to be one of the lucky ones that did not pay for fuel but we now get taxed on the fuel from feb this year and on a rubi the tax on the fuel alone is a couple a k a month with the kms that i do... 45k km last year

    but i now decided against it, think ill miss the rubi too much so im going to keep her (for now ) and buy a another bike for commuting the savings on tax will pay for the bike and then i have another toy...for free and also keep the kms on the rubi down.

    the 2013 wrangler looks super hot and i have my eye on that now porsche also has the new baby suv the macan coming dec that i love !! but that might be too rich for my blood so will see what that costs. its based on the q5 but i think pricing will be in line with evoque

    for the price you will have to go far to beat this :
    http://4x4community.co.za/forum/show...=2013+wrangler

    i will also look at the sahara diesel, the rubi is overkill (for my purposes) and the sahara is also very capable from what i understand and the new diesel more economical

    sjoe ok that was the long answer, the short one = no !

    Thanx for your insight
    I'm of 3 minds: new bakkie next year OR keep the bakkie + new Trailblazer or CRD Wrangler. Probably easier for now because I have never owned or driven a Wrangler I just dont know captain..............

    OT, Sorry to the rest

    Interressant is dat vergelykend met die Ranger T6 wat n GROOT bakkie is, is die isuzu kleiner in alle opsigte (mates gewys) behalwe voorste en agterste spoor wydte (front and rear track) en algehele breede (overall width), 10mm breer as die T6. Tog is die breedte van die laaibak minder as die ford s'n 1530mm vs 1560mm
    Sal graag die twee langs mekaar wil sien.....ek het nog nie met die Navara of Amarok vergelyk nie, maar glo dat die isuzu iewers tussen die navara en volksie sal wees, effe groter as 'n navara maar nie so groot soos die amarok of t6 nie...

    If you are a OffRoader the Wrangler would be better.
    If you're a Overlander the Trailblazer would be better.
    If you do both the Isuzu KB D/Cab would be best.

    I am not an offroader (yet) because I have only owned a 4x2 up to now and have no over exagerated expectations of what it can do At this stage, I would rather opt for touring and family holiday off the beaten track with the occasional l 4x4 track just for fun. I would rather go diving

    Only thing I am wondering about is the build quality of Chevs and ability to age of the vehicle itself. The motor I trust but the brand and its reputation is unknown to me personally. Dealer support..... I dont think GM will win any prizes and sell vehicles because of this

    A new KB DC though does sound very enticing!

    Seems the 2013 D-Max will grow over the size of our current KB.
    This off Isuzu.co.uk;

    Lenghth: KB 5035 - 5155 D-Max 5295 - 5315 (up 160mm - 260mm)
    Width:...KB 1860............D-Max 1860.......... (up 60mm)

    The S/Cab bak seems to grow by 60mm
    D/Cab 4x4 ground clearance is also up about 10mm

    In the UK they quote a Torque figure of 400Nm for the 2.5, but I have the 3.0 as 400Nm. But in the UK they ONLY get the 2.5...
