      Chevrolet (I'd even buy the GMC Sierra even when the Chev Silverado is the same thing...). I think Chevy is still GM at its worst (minus the Corvette, which is basically its own brand anyway). I...

      That's because simple setups with real buttons are far easier to use and generally much faster to get things done (especially compared to voice control) when driving. Look at the evolution of iDrive...

      Tall and narrow. You absolutely don't want to add to the diameter, as it could cause rubbing against fenders in tight turns (especially when snow/ice are crammed in that wheel well).

      I'll take paddle shift please... or Tiptronic. This would be weird, as there is no clutch.

      Why unprofitable? Trucks are very good profit centers. They would pretty much have to make it Colorado based to make it affordable, durable, and off-road able as a Jeep. The Colorado would be the...
