I know what a bumper is but what's a bumber?

A bumber is a bumper that has a p standing up.

I'd buy that truck in a heartbeat. To me the only similarity between that front end and the Edge you is the headlights....nothing else. The headlights is not what I dislike about the Edge...its the huge grille so no foul there in my eyes.

Also, I feel that rendering looks better than the current Colorado, as well as Frontier and Tacoma, and I wouldn't be cross shopping with full size trucks so again another reason why I'd buy it. I'm not super excited about the headlight design, but the grille and lower front look excellent to me. It beats the hell out of the other global version that is for sure.

Of course, this rendering is likely not 100% accurate, but based on the GM teaser shot and spy shots I'm betting it is close.

Also, there is always the GMC Canyon which you may like if you don't like this one.
I really like that rendering oo. my hope is that it is priced far enough under the fullsize trucks with enough of an MPG gain to make it worth it and viable. I am certainly not a huge fan of the Tacoma, but considering you can get a regular cab 2wd for around 18k and a 4x4 for under 22k is a major thing and seriously undercuts the fullsize trucks. the Colorado/Canyon need to do this too.

My biggest concern with the new midsizes is the interior.

Because this works overseas:



...but that's not good enough for me for the NA market.

Yeah, that's not good. I am guessing we will get something akin to the new fullsize trucks.

I'd be very surprised if they went through all the trouble of reskinning the outside & then left the interior basically untouched.

Chevrolet is recalling 18,941 Camaro models in the United States due to airbag warning stickers on the sun visors that may peel off. This might not seem like a big deal, but, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration puts it, "If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash."
And I'm sure GM's initial response to NHTSA was .

I've never quite understood the purpose of those stickers. Are there people out there who claim that they would never have gotten into a serious accident had they known they might get injured by the airbag?

It's the lawyers, if those labels were not there and someone did get injured by the air bag deploying then there would be lawyers chomping at the bit hollering SUE!!!! But with the stickers at least they say hey you were warned, didn't you read the stickers that were in plain sight?

The real warning should be for passengers(usually teen females) to keep their feet off the dash, unless pretzel is a look they are shooting for.

It's actually the lack of common sense people have today that manufacturers are being required to put warning labels on everything,
Just read the warnings on many products. You will see what I mean, what should be common sense to people they still have to warn us about.
Just like the warnings on Cigarettes, everyone knows they will kill you, they have been called "Coffin Nails" for centuries....

Yeah...I hope we get a better interior than that as well, and I hope to see some color variation at least in the higher trim packages. But that said, if the rest of the truck looks good, performs well, and has decent mpgs no way I'd not buy the truck just b/c of that interior.

Anyone hear when the Frontier or Tacoma are going to be refreshed or a new gen coming? They are both long in the tooth as well.

And now that I've seen it on my laptop Z/28 brakes! Whatever it is if it makes production it won't be cheap.

Would a rendering from GM be considered real, or a photoshop? Because thats what I believe this to be.
