Actually the Colorado has been in the US market for a number of years, the first version came out in the early 2004 manufactured in Louisiana (friend had one). But your correct, there were overseas versions and manufacturing plants.

That's pretty respectable capacity for a "mini" truck. I wonder what the payload will be like?

What's the payload like on the overseas version? I find it amazing the payload figures these manufacturers are claiming on their foreign-market counterparts. So it leaves me wondering if there are standards for these ratings or if they're just claiming whatever they want...?

I would think these versions would do very well here. It's not like the rest of the vehicle is much different, so it confounds me why these more capable vehicles wouldn't do well here.
