Truck line,curious to drive the Colorado with the new durama diesel,finally its being released,I also see we have a new 3500 suburban coming out (finally) and one last thing,the 2016 1500 pickup is having a front end face lift,I like the new look way better.

FYI for GM folks.

From what I read, a new HD Suburbun will only be offered to fleet/gov't entities.

There is a next gen Duramax in the works. I've heard maybe out for the 2017 HD GM trucks.

I'd consider a GM pickup if the front bumper had more ground clearance than their Malibu. I don't think you could drive over a snapping turtle without it getting hung up under that bumper. What a waste of an otherwise good pickup. When my current battlefield transport gives out I'll probably spring for a Tundra.

slim.aero dynamics,but hey,take off the splash guard and have a 3" front ready lift installed to level the truck out and give you the clearance.

You know, I was just looking at some trucks in traffic and it's not limited to GM. Ford and Dodge have some pretty low front bumpers too.

Just poking a stick at the bear, if you actually sit down and study all brands of vehicles, and nit pick them apart, they all have good and bad in them. :;:howdy

it's a sealed nitrogen based system - no contamination/moisture/dust

besides - lifetime bumper-to-bumper warranty

I am actually very impressed with the clearance on my 2014 GMC after I removed the air deflector. It is an easy fix to add a lot of clearance compared to other rigs.

With the air deflector removed I can almost clear a case of the wife's beer stood on end.:D
