Pickup trucks have finally gone global. Once a staple of American workmanship, the handy-dandy pickup truck has found love across the globe over decades. Specifically, Chevrolet went on the offensive with its global Colorado pickup truck, which is sold in various markets across the world.
However, Ram has recently taken to undercut the Chevrolet Colorado, introducing the Ram 1200, a rebadged version of the Fiat Fullback. Fiat-Chrysler Authority reports the Ram 1200 is available with a 2.4-liter gasoline engine or 2.5-liter diesel and comes with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional five-speed automatic.
It’s no slouch in the payload department either, with the 1200 capable of carrying 2,425 pounds when tasked.
Therefore, we’re here to ask if Chevrolet should make a similar move in the global market. Should Chevrolet offer a scaled-down alternative to the Colorado pickup?
There’s room, and a bare-bones truck could do well in global markets, where expectations aren’t nearly as high as in North America. That in itself revisits the question of should Chevrolet offer a smaller truck under the Colorado in North America, too. After all, Chevy has stated there are always opportunities.
We’ll turn it to you now. Vote in our poll and discuss below should you feel compelled.
