    With what I'm reading, the Colorado will NOT be using the 6cyl gas engine currently being used in the camaro, but the new 4.3 DI gas engine that will be much more suited to the weight and use of a truck.

    Again, I believe the ratings are 285hp/315 tq with est mpg figures of 20-25 behind the 6sp auto. I would guess a few mods and you're looking at 320/350 and 25-28 mpg on the road which beats our Tacos handily.

    Again, competition makes for better products. I'm interested to see GM's new offering in gas and diesel...and again I'll say, 180/346 in a 4500lb truck won't be a slouch (I think you'll see something closer to 200+hp) and I would guess you should easily see 25 mpg at 65mph.

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, was searching for info on the next redesign and what the new colorado/canyon will mean to each other when I saw this. Just wanted to say you were right on the money. 196/368 is the new ratings out of the 2.8 in the diesel over seas in the colorado. They dropped the 2.5 diesel.

    Being a GM guy I am really wanting to get one of these but have also been a fan of the Taco for quite sometime. Don't want/need a full size and being a big guy (6'5 280) I appreciate the added width of the current Taco and upcoming Colorado.

    How do some of the bigger members fit inside the Taco? Seems pretty good just sitting in it.

    Either was going to be nice to see what Toyota brings after the colorado is shown this month. I hope they put the 4.3 in it but the 3.6 would work ok too. When is the next Tacoma coming out? 2016/2017?

    What diesel would they put in it? GM uses the duramax, Dodge/Nissan cummins and VM. What is used over seas that could be put in the Taco?

    This is my first post, longtime lurker and been on for almost a year. Big fan of the tacos, just seeing which will be my next truck in a couple years.

    I'm very excited about the new diesels coming to smaller trucks in the US. I run 137 angus cattle in the middle of nowhere AZ. 95% of what I do can be done by a small diesel. I only need the 1 ton diesel to pull the cattle trailer in to the livestock auction. The 1 ton is too expensive to drive everyday miles and miles on end so it just sits there until it needs to pull a heavy trailer. I will be test driving all the new diesels (colorado, ram, and the titan cummins). However I prefer the reliability of toyota products. A crew cab 4x4 TRD with a small turbo diesel would be the perfect truck for what I do EVERY single day. I know many like me that are also excited for the new diesels. For several years I have been anticipating buying a new tacoma double cab 4x4 trd when the next redesign comes out but if the tacoma isnt sporting a diesel (from what I have read it likely will not) I will seriously consider the diesel option of the other brands.
