The new Colorado really looks great! How I wish I could afford it.

7700 lb tow rating for a mid size truck, thats pretty impressive right there. Wonder if they are concerned about this cutting into full size truck sales?

I could see low 40's MSRP pretty easy. I'm basing this on the z71 (top trim level) price + my options. I was able to pre-negotiate a fair price over invoice.
That being said; "The most expensive" != loaded.
You can add all the frilly gear-on stuff you want to pump the MSRP. IMO it adds nothing to the truck itself.

I do have a small order update. I did hear back from my dealer this morning. I do have an order number, however I'm in 1100 status at the moment. The dealer did confirm allocation so this may be a constraint issue. It's only been two days so I'm not fretting it.

GM at least knows of my intent, and my options pass the first round of scrutiny.

On another forum I'm hearing of accepted orders. It's looking up after a year of waiting.

I did find a dealer today that could look it up, but he could not price it yet.

Im thinking gm may try the ford approach with the colorado/canyon trucks. A dedicated HD and then the smaller truck. 7700 pounds is right in the half ton battle for towing.

Me want....

What is it with GM? They are taking orders on 2016 Volts with no prices either. I know what MSRP is but none of the options

That's been my reasoning. It does exactly what I need it to do, gets better milage than my current DD, and is relatively simple to navigate in a metro area. It feels like this truck was designed with me in mind.

It sounds like it's designed with MANY in mind who are willing to get into the truck they need(just maybe not the truck they want). Most who tow with a half ton don't ever tow more than 7700 pounds, and they can fit 4 adults. GM may be onto something if they market this truck right, but I'm sure they're concerned about cutting into there half ton market with specs like these.
