I actually managef to see these trucks in real life. 2 of them, a Colorado ZR2, and a GMC Denali. The interiors are very different, the Colorado had goofy round vents but the the GMC's have nice vents just like the full size. Both nice interiors, but the GMC is a lot nicer. When I went inside the dealer to ask for a test drive , I was told the trucks were for dealer to get a look and and drive but not available for general public test drives yet. He was nice enough to let me and buddy sit in them and pop the hood.
No Diesel option....whaaaat. Although the 2.7 turbo is way up in torque and horsepower over the V6 and Diesel.
The GMC was lifted as high as the ZR2, and taller than the 2atnd gen ZR2. And apparently come that way from factory.
One other big disappointment was the lack of long box option. I guess too many people were buying the crew cab with the wimpy box ?
Salesman said we should see these on the lots in 3-4 months.
Kind of glad I didn't get to drive one, after seeing the GMC factory lift and amazing interior and tech, if the engine performs as well as they said, it is going to be hard not to get one.
