Looks like a redefined Taco.
I would have to see it in real before I make a decision.
My biggest thing is comfort. I'm a large size person. 6'5" 315#s so I not only test drive I "try On" my vehicles. Jury still out on my Colorado. Have has a lot of trouble in past GM vehicles. (Transmission). If it was sight unseen prior I would take Ford over GMC. Comfort was deciding factor in my 2015 decision over a Taco plus engine power. Plus I like the collies looks better. We'll see what future decides.
I'll be honest....
I think its a very Sharp looking truck wonder if they will offer it with their 3.2 diesel to compete with the Twins when it arrives in 2018?
I'm not sure about their 3.2 less torque 197HP / 347 TQ (no DEF to my knowledge so probably even less if it ever comes here.)
whereas the global Colorado has 197 HP and 368 TQ
In the past I always liked the Ford trucks more but the Chevy Cars (with the exception of Mustangs). Chevy trucks always seemed to have better rides and turning radius but ford just felt more capable and solid. Had trans trouble on last couple GMC products so I'm kind of skeptical on the 6 speed trans. My 1994 Ford F150 had 297 plus on it when I sold it and bought my 2013 JK 2dr in 2013.
Traded in my 2004 F150 (yah, the model year that had seizing spark plugs and failing cam phasers) for my 2016 Canyon. This is my first GM vehicle in 17 years. I've got high hopes quality has improved and this truck won't be a lemon like my 89 Pontiac Grand Prix. (Although I did have fun etching words into the de-laminating paint that thing had.)
Anyhow, I've had both brands so I can add to the mix here.
