2009 Chevrolet Colorado 4WD Crew Cab 1LT

Yep, it's a great powertrain, but it's stuck in a severely outdated truck that is, as Rusty Blackwell notes, a flashback to the 1990s. The driver's seat is as low to the floor as one you would find in a sports car, yet the step-in height is that of a truck. This makes for an odd driving position, although I suppose one would get used to it.

Chevy's cross-town competition, the Ford Ranger, is even more outdated than the Colorado. Your Chevy dealer is probably happy to give you a sweetheart deal on the V-8 Colorado, but at this price point, you can probably get into a full-size truck with far more refinement, room, and comfort. Start with Chevy's own Silverado, I'd say.
