My wife took one look at the Silverado and said "no way", it was too big, she wouldn't drive it. So we walked over to the Colorados. She said "Now this I could handle."

I bought a used 2015 Colorado crew cab 2x4 with the V6 and locking rear differential (so I at least have a little better traction when needed) 3 or 4 months ago. Loving it so far....My trip to work is fairly decent for getting good mpg, that said I'm averaging 24 - 25 mpg with it, which I'm happy with. Loving everything about it so far, except for the seats, which are too narrow and b/c of that, the left side bolster digs into my thigh (and I'm a slim dude). They are only 4 way seats, so no way to tilt them to help with the pressure. Not sure if the new ones are any better in this area, or if the cloth versions are better. Mine has leather. I have plans to modify the foam in the seat, or do my own DIY dead pedal b/c the one in the truck is basically non-existent.

It will be the same size as the current Colorado/Canyon/Tacoma. Lots of people seem to say these trucks are too big, and maybe they are a tad big (I think its perfect for me) but comments saying they are as big as a full size is just wrong. Sure, a crew cab with the 6 foot bed option is probably about as long as a full size extended cab, but the width of the truck is significantly less, and the height is also less as well.

As far as prices, yeah they aren't cheap, but if you option them out similarly to a full size and then go hunting for rebates for both you should be able to get a mid size for a few grand less. The fact is, some people just don't want a fullsize truck...actually lots of people since these trucks are selling so well. I'm one of them.
