Not looking for an S-10. Just a small/mid size truck that makes sense. Looking forward to their reveal.

I saw one of these on I-10 with Sonoran plates a few days ago. Threw me off as I hadn't seen one before. It almost appears smaller than an S-10. I didn't like it but maybe a use for it in Mexico. I've also seen a few of the crew cab Rangers from Mexico running around Tucson. Not sure why Ford never brought them here, but that's their loss.

So Fen, out of curiosity... I haven't read up on it a lot, but are the new Colorados and Canyons body on frame or unibody?

Care to elaborate on this a little further? The s10/Sonoma never really did any one thing great but made for a good small chore truck with decent mpg's. You keep saying the newer smaller trucks are focusing a lot on fuel mileage so why would they not be a good replacement?

Because the new midsize trucks won't be that small. Mark Reuss spoke about them a few months ago and he was talking 90% the size of a K2XX Silverado.

In the sense that they'll be for those who want an alternative to a full size with better FE and have no need for the payload/towing capacity of the full sizes, then yes, they're similar to the GMT-325s in that regard. But if you're wanting a compact truck like the 325s, these aren't it. They're still going to be pretty big.

Yeah...I think the compact truck is long gone...although in reality a w/t single cab Colorado is a pretty small truck still....but that's not even close to what I need lol.

Possibly a hint to the next camaro or something totally different but still awesome? I'm sure even if its not the next camaro cousin it should give some insight on the specs to the next camaro.

That reminds me, do you have any idea about why Vauxhall still exists as a seperate brand?

I think it's just a matter of regional branding. Same reason it'd be difficult to get rid of Holden from Australia.

I finally got the chance to see a silver (SIM) one in person on Monday, they are sexy cars. The way the light caught it at first, I thought the color was White Diamond Tricoat (another color I'd love to see for Impala). Dealer also had a 2014 Silverado in White Diamond, very nice too.

I saw a gray one a couple weeks ago. The dealership guys were trying to figure out how to get the odometer to display. It has steering wheel controls to bring up that display.
