"“In the long run,[the US auto industry] is trying to evolve consumer taste into a more fuel-efficient vehicle, and [the new Colorado] continues in that vein. If you don’t give consumers a chance to see if this will satisfy them, then you’ll never know if it will,” says Bruce Belzowski, a researcher at the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute in Ann Arbor."

In other world markets the Colorado comes with a 2.5 or 2.8L diesel engine. This drive train needs to come to the States. Imagine a mid sized truck with the fuel efficiency of a 4 cylinder and the torque of a large V6 engine? With the ZF based 8 speed automatic, you could have a truck that could get 30+ MPG on the highway and still be able to pull a load.
