    2018 Centennial Edition Silverado and Colorado

    Special editions to celebrate 100 years of Chevy trucks. I like it. Too bad the Silverado is $60k with a 6.2 V8. The throwback blue bowties are awesome. The color is called Centennial Blue and only available with this package.

    That first picture, it didn't look blue at all to me. Looked gray. Not bad. Can't decide if I really like or dislike the Chevrolet inside the bowtie. I'm leaning towards liking it.

    While I don't disagree w/ you, I wonder why this truck has had such a backlash about the square fender wells when it's not even a new design.




    I'm thinking b/c the 80's trucks were more square all over, making it all flow just better, and the latest ones have more rounded edges in some areas and it just emphasizes the areas that are squared off, like the fenders. No idea

    I think you're right, but I never cared for those as much either.

    White, Black, Tungsten, Silver. It's called the RST package and it's also available in LT and Premier trim with the 5.3. 6.2 is only available in Premier RST. We have a black premier here with the 5.3. It's looks awesome in black since there's almost no chrome on it.

    Pretty premium combo, I doubt that's what you'll get... if it's even available to customers yet.

    That's probably my favorite body style of GM truck ever, though I prefer the grills in the later years, like the '72s.

    I would have to say that '69 and '70 were my favorite on the grilles.

    As far as the truck in the OP, I like it... but once I tasted the Ford truck kool aid I can't go back.

    Yas.

    I heart the square wheel wells. I liked on the late 70s early 80s chevys too. I think the current style of chevy pick up is one of the best looking ever, slightly better than 67-72, but not mid 50s chevy.

    Edit: that beast needs tint.

    Yes it does. Just waiting on our tint guy to come by. I'm getting a spray in bed liner tomorrow. I'll probably swap the wheels out too.

    I know it's probably a poor choice for a truck, but I've been wanting a Colorado 4x4 with the new diesel. It would be good for working pipelines like I do sometimes and only haul around my 4 wheeler. But damn near $50k for a loaded, diesel Colorado 4x4 ain't cheap.

    I looked into this and drove one. It is a sharp looking truck, the interior is laid out really nice, but the thing is boring as hell to drive. Ultimately is decided on a 5.3 Silverado for much less money, fuel cost offsets mpg, tows almost 4000lbs more, way more fun to drive with a proven drive train.

    The good thing about Colorados is that they hold their value better than any truck out there. I got more for my Colorado on trade than I paid for it new in February. I was really leaning towards keeping it for that reason. I just wanted a bigger truck though.
