I think it looks pretty cool. If I do ever buy another new truck it will be a midsize 4 door and I might just go with the Colorado/Canyon trucks. I have friends who love their trucks and I have driven several of them and liked the ride.

The Ranger is not dead...it is still made...we just can't get one.

True, but for all intents and purposes "that" ranger is a whole different truck so I really don't consider it a ranger. Isn't it a different, frame, body, engine, axle, etc?

Too bad GM made it, I might consider it if it was made by Ford. I saw several turbo diesel 4 door rangers in Thailand last week. Damn nice trucks- its a sin they don't make them here.

Looks like some hillbilly cut the back of an uplander and mounted a new Malibu grille to it. Yuck. I'm sick of people wanting trucks, but then want them to be cars, thus carmakers turn trucks into p.o.s. crossover bullskeet.

I have no desire to call that rather confused looking vehicle mine...

Being slightly larger than a Tacoma probably makes it the same size as the last generation of half tons anyway... :icon_rofl:

That seems like a truck a lot of people would buy for looks. It doesn't look like a good work truck at all.

No joke.

I'm assuming that the picture is of their "west coast" for fun themed one, and the work truck version would be a bit more utilitarian; but you what assuming does...
