In this adventure, there has been plenty of posts discussing the Bronco's introduction and how it will drive the competition to do better and vice versa. I think it's bringing out competition they didn't expect to be competition. Where did the inspiration for this Canyon concept come from? I don't think they're chasing Fiat...

GM mentality- if it has red tow hooks then it must be an offroader!

It's good looking, but imo the gm suspensions are not intended for real offroading! Horrible articulation, horrible ride for offroad.... GM can keep putting black rims, red tow hooks and mud tires on trucks, but that doesn't equate an offroader to me! They dont even offer a real locker ( I know I know... G80)... Dont get me wrong, I like GM vehicles, but you have to call something when you see it!

The Colorado ZR2 (and Bison) is pretty great

Your red tow hook comment made me remember this:

Really glad to see you're enjoying it, I do remember when you picked it up, sweet truck. I had to get a new truck this year, and compromised between the AT4 and max tow package. Got a 21 Sierra SLT w/X31 suspension and 6.2L. I had it in the woods testing out the 4wd before it had 50 miles on it, nothing like I plan to do with my Bronco, but I've been very happy with it in moderate terrain to get to some remote spots. And it pulls my 31' camper down the highway like a champ while riding like a Cadillac. To be clear, I'm not gonna take this thing down any class VI roads in NH, that's the kind of stuff I've been trying to buy a Bronco for...

Yeah, I don't get the red tow hook thing. When you're browsing models on the GMC website, they brag on the red tow hooks as a cool feature almost as much as Ford does with the sway bar disconnect. As much as I love the AT4s, I've always felt like I was missing something there
