An s-10 or Sonoma with 4x4 and probably a ZR2 package would not be bad if you are pulling a small trailer and limited equipment. Colorado's are the new S-10s but I personally dont like the look of them. Of course I thought Avalanches were not that appealing when they came out but I would love to have one as a 2nd vehicle. Probably also what people thought when Ford went with the rounded front end back in 97(?). Once you see things enough you usually change your tune about them. I guess I just dont like plastic design around the wheel wells.

Do you think that the 4 cylinder is stong enough to pull my trailer? I have a 50' dixie 32 walkbehind. The trailer has racks on the side and a cage in the front to hold the blowers.

I would not do it with a 4 banger, but in my case, I would not buy a 4 banger in a truck. Try it and see, best way to find out.

is it a manny tranny or auto. If it's manual I would think it's fine. It all depends on your shifting. It will be slow but it shoud get u there.

I wouldn't wear out a new 1/2 ton or smaller, pulling a load on a daily basis. Nice truck though.

It will pull it no doubt, but the tranny and suspension just aint built to pull on a daily basis. Don't they offer a 5 cyl. engine on the Colorado's and Canyon's?

Well I have been driving this truck for a few months now and just wanted to let yall know how good it pulls......... :cool2: This truck pulls my trailer with everything on it great....I have had no probs with it and I am very impressed with how good a 4 cycl can pull...If you cant afford a full size truck like myself i recomend getting this truck.

Did you have brakes installed on the trailer? If you didn't, I would suggest getting them. You would be impressed with how good a trailer with brakes stops compared to one without.. Just my .02 :waving:

I have not yet, but i plan on it...The stock breaks work pretty damn good now, but they will wear down pretty fast....Thank you for the advice

It is a pizza delivery truck.

Mid size is a Nissan Titan or Ford F150.

Full size is a 3500 HD or F350.

Men's trucks are C4500's and C5500's.

I think you meant to say F-650 or F-750 with Cat C7's instead of an Isuzu engine????

imograss for some reason i think the inline 5 is only available on the trailblazer and the gmc envoy i think but hey i could be wrong. i would like to have a colorado just to drive to estimates and to pick up stuff in the morning or afternoon but not to pull anything. buy the way email me or pm me i may know of a big job you may want
