Default Picked up something boring

Short and sweet. Picked up a CO.

Brand new 2017 Z71 4x4 crew cab short bed loaded. 8 spd trans. Off road package. Tow package. Upgraded 7 speaker sound system. Apple car play. Heated leather. Nav. Hard to fit certain material/tools in the civic when I go to certain jobs solo. Plus nothing beats GM factory remote start and OnStar remote link.

This thing is kinda quick with the 8 speed trans.

Needs more dark tint

Is the 8 speed trans a new thing? My dad has a 15 Canyon and the transmission is my only real complaint with it.

They are as of recently from '17. I've been eyeing Silverados/Sierras for a while. I believe they are working on the 10 Speed autos still


Looks good Syp!!

Yours sounds like it is optioned exactly like mine minus red, extended cab, and long bed... Did yours have the trailer brake controller? Those are harder to come by.

I liked white, I think it was our third choice for color because all the parts store trucks are white extended cab Colorados and we didn't want to look like we had one of those.

Congrats

Oops. Yes it has the trailer brake controller too. 8spd is brand new for 2017. I raced a 2015+ 5.0 to a merger at a stop light. I was at his back door til 50-55mph then he started to pull away. It was quite comical.

Nice, I haven't used it very much yet, but the integrated brake controller seems to be a thing of beauty. I'm glad we spent the extra coin to get it.

They are really quick for a truck. I have a Trifecta tune on my 2017 Colorado 3.6L 8 speed and its surprisingly quick. I'm curious to see what numbers mine would lay down 0-60 and 1/4 mile with the tune since its a Work truck extended cab model. Trifecta's loaded crew cab 2017 Colorado was able to hit 5.9 sec 0-60 times.. lol.

I've always liked them. I still want a Z71/5.3 older Colorado but according to Boosh, they're absolute junk.

i guess a midsized truck should be more "affordable" vs the pricing of a full size.

( side note, the sticker on my frontier was 30K, but with an employee discount and rebates, i got it for 26K OTD )

Love the white.
