If by interesting you mean the Colorado is not mentioned at all then we're on the same page.

Non-vehicle model specific awards are meaningless, and those that are specific really have to be scrutinized. A quick search of the JD Powers website for Chevrolet for the Colorado for 2016-19 (2020 has nothing yet) don't show the Colorado at all. Click on the link, pick your year, drill down through things. It probably would not hurt do do more research on J.D. Powers - that is interesting.

I can tell you that I have had worrisome issues with my 2017 Colorado diesel and question the long-term reliability of both the engine and transmission (6 speed). I've had the ECU replaced, some wire chaffing issues checked, and had to update the headlights which have remained rated poor per the IIHS for the entire run to date which is astounding as this is a safety issue, and Consumer Reports gives the predicted reliability rating a whopping 1/5 (subscription, cannot link to that).

In the video they mention mid size. That is the only thing I figure is the twins.
did you notice Ram is not mentioned in the video. But they are very popular around here.
Its common to see advertising for $10,000 to $15,000 price incentives. People eat that up around here.

The purpose of this post wasn’t model specific but more to show were Chevy stands in the overall picture.
Everything I have read says GM quality is sub par. But this doesn’t seem to be the case.

So ether things are pretty good overall or the quality of the competition has fallen,
Also notice how buddy says the earlier years of the Toyota Tacoma were not good. This is something never talked about when it comes to the fabulous Toyota quality....

I had never heard of JD power before carmakers began using them as a marketing tool. Which is exactly what I think it is. As for Consumer Reports, it's not worth the paper its printed on.
