Chevrolet Colorado show truck - Click above for high-res image gallery

Behold, the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado. Sort of. General Motors has yanked back the sheets on what the company is calling a show truck at the Bangkok International Motor Show. Despite the 'show' label, the mid-sizer is poised to go on sale in Thailand later this year packing a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine, though there are no firm details as to what we can expect in terms of either power or efficiency. GM did say that the Colorado won't leave buyers lacking for enough towing capacity, though. Odds are we can expect tricks like the 20-inch wheels and body-color tonneau cover to be nixed as the truck makes its way closer to production.

Still, the vehicle is plenty sharp and looks to have the mechanical guts to give the global Ford Ranger a run for its money. But will GM offer the Colorado we see here in the States? That's a tough question. The automaker has made it clear that the Shreveport, Louisiana plant that manufactures the aging Colorado/GMC Canyon isn't long for this world, though we have heard rumors that the automaker isn't planning on killing the pickup all together. Here's hoping we'll see this truck or something similar in the States sometime soon. Hit the jump for the full press release.

Looks good. But almost too much like a fullsize for my liking.

I'd drive it. Minus that Avalanche-esque umbrella/wing/garbage.

The last time I had this much fun, I was driving the banana. Of course, back in my day we called it denting the bacon.

My personal opinion is, its butt ugly. Then again I dont like the look of the second gen s-series the most either.

BORKED

Still looks too much fullsize.

I do like the wheels, tires and the cab.

It looks kind of cool, but it will have to grow on me like the new Silverados did.

I think it looks like doodoo. It looks too much like the lame Honda Ridgeline thing.

I like the interior. Seats look interesting. The center dash looks nice with the dual controls and the instrument cluster looks decent. not sure why they choose blue....sorta do with the whole blue is easier on the eyes, but should have gone with more of a red theme in the lighting.

The exterior is not to my liking. I never liked the av's rear nor do I like the Traverse front. lol

I agree with you on the interior.
