Re: Where Did The Compact Pickups Go?

The US 2nd gen Colorado will look different than the one overseas. Different engines also.
If they offer a diesel and the truck does look better than the next gen Tacoma i may look at it.

If the amarok came over i would switch to it. I have a 2.5L Jetta and have been really happy with it. Snooping through the web idk if rumors or not it seems as if vw is thinking of letting it out in canada.

I took my car in for service and they asked if i would look into a trade i said yeah bring me an amarok and ill trade. the guy just walked away

The ones out now look greusome. I saw a concept today and it looked okay, resembled the silverado a lot.

I would switched to the Amarok as well. The only thing is that Id wait until they are manufactured in America. The distributors in South America have been producing a lot of lemons lately.

Ever noticed the similarities between the s10/sonona/colorado/canyon and all the Isuzu pickups?...they are the same truck...hell I think even the chevy duramax engine is made by Isuzu.

And the Mazda 'b' series trucks are the same as the Ford rangers...same goes for the Mitsubishi pickups and dodge...

I owned a 1990 Ranger and is it was almost identical to the Mazda pickup produced round the same time. Down to the wiring harness almost.
The Isuzu and the Canyon / Colorado are likewise identical, there are a few people on the 355 Nation that have swapped out the front grills of their Isuzu for the Colorado or Canyon and then debadged their truck. You can't really tell from the exterior.

I thought Isuzu packed up and left the American market.
