That's not ideal. The truck was already at that "line" of ok, this is good MPG for a truck, but it's a smaller truck. With the 3.0L 1500 coming soon, I wonder how this motor fits in in the future.Anyone wanting a 2019 2.8L Colorado Duramax, word is on the net there is a loss of 2 MPG City on the 2019 GM, 2 wheel drive 2.8 Duramax truck. 2018 4×2 diesel carried a rating of 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined, the EPA rates the 2019 model at 20 mpg/30 mpg/23 mpg. No one can explain why, no gear ratio changes or engine tuning differences. Supposedly GM said that they would look into it??????

If the 1500 3.0L even touches close to 30MPG, I would see no advantage of the Colorado unless you just like a smaller truck and/or don't have the room for a full size.
Y'all are coming at it from the capabilities perspective.Right there with you on that kind of thinking.
Why not have more room and protection in a half ton truck if it can get within one to three miles per gallon of the Colorado?
X-2. Makes me wonder why the media gets so wound-up over something like the rare cruise / rail / aviation incidents and essentially ignores a correctable social behavior that kills *way* more people than one of the regulated methods of transportation. Compared to all of the automotive incidents caused by operator negligence, focus on cruise / rail / aviation is barely worth the attention as those sectors apply lessons learned (slowly perhaps, but they do make corrections). If we could get the press to dig-into and make a national / global news story out of each automotive incident the same way they do with one of those horrible buses / nightmare cruise ships / nasty little planes (example: vehicle's maintenance record, driver's infraction history, driver's mental health, what they did that day, any medication the driver took (even aspirin or Viagra), driver's behavioral attitude in general, driver's toxicology report from blood drawn immediately after the incident, interviews with all of the driver's neighbors, blaming the manufacturer for something that failed due to getting pushed outside of its acceptable use (or the driver ignoring the fact that something was broken), and many other minute and unimportant details), we actually might save lives . . .The biggest collision I fear is a head on collision on a 2 lane road, some Jack Ass, is texting and comes across the line and gets me. . . . As we already know generally someone runs a red light, stop sign or pulls out in front of someone and gets T-Boned, yelp that's not going to end well.
Sorry I said that wrong, got it backwards, rear half door has to shut then the front door closes on top of it. Have to open the front door in order to open the little rear door to get things out or to load things.....you guys know what I mean. It is kind of awkward if you are loading groceries and parked beside of another vehicle and space is limited. That's one reason I love my crew cab 2500HD, easier loading for sure.As far as my two trucks, I do feel way safer in my 2006 Chevy, 2500HD, crew cab versus my little 2002 S-10 extended cab. My extended cab S-10 has the suicide door arrangement as I consider it, no post there, just the little half back door closing on the front door on the drivers side. Passenger side is solid, its considered to be a third door truck I guess.
