So, when we went to Ohio last week for vacation, something I noticed is that there aren't many of these Colorados/ Canyons running around. I think I saw 3 in Ohio while we were there and don't recall passing any on I-70 going there or coming home. I did pass a blacked out Colorado (gas) on the side of I-71 near Columbus and I think I saw another one in Columbus when we were there visiting my cousin. But they just don't seem to be around that much.

My uncle did give our Canyon a look over as he is considering buying a gas Colorado/ Canyon sometime, and did say the local Chevy dealer has quite a few of the Colorado's on hand, but I still didn't see many while driving around. Now, in St. Louis and the surrounding cities here in Missouri, I see them all the time, mainly Colorado's with gas engines and that could be because they are more readily available here since they are built just outside of St. Louis in Wentzville, MO.

I will say, there is only 1 other diesel Colorado (kind of a burnt red color with black fender flares) that I have seen, that I can recall, and they actually live in the same town as me. The gas engine trucks are popular, but I just don't see the diesels. And diesel is cheap here in Missouri! Currently $2.10 a gallon here in my town. 3/4 and 1 ton diesel pickups are extremely popular in this area, or maybe just Missouri in general, but there just aren't any Colorado's or Canyons hardly.

What about in your area, are the Colorados/ Canyons popular and how about the diesel powered ones? Or is it just a select few of us who have them? :D

Everybody that sees mine says they never knew it existed.

I saw a white loaded out diesel canyon (Denali maybe) with a dealer tag parked on a street as I was working the other week. Can't recall seeing any other diesel ones yet

I see tons of gas ones stock and modified

I see a ton of gas colorados and a few canyons. I see a few diesel colorados, guess I've got one of the only diesel canyons in my area.

I've seen one Canyon diesel running around my area, but that's it.

I get people yelling at me when I fill up all the time... "Dude, that's a diesel pump, you're going to kill your truck!" :)
Haven't had anyone say that yet to me, dunno if the wife has. We decided to get a Duramax "D" decal for the back window. I haven't received it yet, but I'll put a picture on here when I do. Want others to know I'm proud to own a baby Duramax :cool:

I've seen a few, and one exactly like mine a few weeks ago. Lot of gas trucks in Tampa, I suspect most are 2WD.
I kind of wondered if they wouldn't sell a decent amount of 2WD trucks in the southern states. Not because you all don't go offroading in your trucks down there. I was thinking of using 4WD more in the winter time in snow more than anything.

I sell trucks in Arkansas, we may have 1 snow day a year, and usually its melted off by noon. for every 100 full size 4x4 trucks, we may have 1 or 2 2x4 trucks. as for the colorados, on the gas burner its probably only 20% that are 4x4, where as I have seen only one 2wd Colorado or canyon diesel since they released. most of our trucks are 4wd, and are sold on the premise that "you may not need it now and you may never use it at all, but when you try to sell it at 200k miles, a 4x4 will still be a good truck for a kid who wants to take it mudding"

Fully agree. It's a long known fact that 4x4 trucks hold value better. Always buy 4x4 unless it's just a company work truck

I saw two today that were my stocks clone in stock form. Both black z71s. One was doing work, pulling a fairly substantial landscaping trailer. One was sitting in the parking lot we call I-285.

I thought I saw a clone of mine driving through a nearby town: black GMC Canyon CCLB, All-Terrain. Got up on him....little exhaust pipe and no hood badge. Just a gasser :(

Saw the Colorado diesel that lives in my town the other day. It's an orange-red color with black fender flares. Also passed a dark red GMC Canyon (SLT or Denali) Duramax this past weekend on the road. I caught a glimpse of the bade on the hood as he went by :cool:

I'm starting to see a few more diesel Colorado's in my area in mid Missouri just not that many canyons.
Oooo, pick me pick me! :) Not quite mid-Missouri, but I'm over here just North of St. Louis along the Mississippi. Just me and another guy in a dark red SLT Canyon CCSB in my area that I have seen.
