Is the engine the same as the Isuzu diesel already being sold in other countries? If so it has allot of potential. Look up some videos on YouTube, that Isuzu is nasty little bitch!

We had chevy luvs and isuzu duramax (thats the trucks name) trucks in iraq they were sweet. But nearly full sized for sure, even the diesel rangers we had we nice.

Even fit and finish in those trucks were nice for being stripper trucks. But i dont know how closely related they are

We just got a Colorado here at the dealership. I really like the ground clearance and interior room for a small truck. I'm considering one when the diesels come out

Should definitely be a fun truck. The manufacturer of the engine controller doesnt matter as much as whos software is loaded into it... (GM in house software/OS, or the controllers' manufacturers' software, but just tuned by GM)

If the Continental controller in the colorado is running all GM software, it will be "easy" for EFILive to map it and figure it out. If its Continental software, then you might as well be starting from scratch, and dont expect EFILive to have any support for it anytime soon.
