Great News! 2006 Pickup for the U.S.!!!

Wow, starting this Summer, those of us in the U.S. can buy a warmed-over Chevy Colorado with an Isuzu Badge on it. Never mind that the truck has already been out for two years with Chevy and a GM
badges, and there's nothing that will really distinguish it from the rest of the pack, this is really exciting. Never mind that they have no plans to offer it with the common-rail diesel engine that is available everywhere BUT the U.S.
Isn't everybody excited?!! This is a real breakthrough! They've even issued press releases!
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...
Get a clue, Isuzu!

Manufactures have been rebadging vehicles for decades so whats your point? Isuzu does it just like everyone else. Honda rebadged the Rodeo. No biggie.

From doing some reading on the internet, it sounds like the Colorado is a slightly modified Isuzu D-Max...a real Isuzu-made product. I think the Colorado uses a different engine and maybe tranny and few other cosmetic changes. So...if it's truly the Isuzu version, then that's a good thing (we hope). Sure would be nice to see a diesel offered though! And still waiting on the new isuzu-made SUV...haven't heard much about it.
