RE: 2023 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

Just from a resale standpoint alone I'd have a really hard time buying anything but a Tacoma in this segment. At 6'3" I would much prefer the Colorado mid size for the additional space.

RE: 2023 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

Here's some more intel from GM's engineer. Looks like the Colorado will have 3 versions of the 2.7 engine from the full size Silverado with the top of the line engine will have 390 ft lbs of torque. Link

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Ford will be soon switching over to Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. Here's some pro's and con's. Pros: Cost much less than lithium ion because they don't use exotic materials. ~10-15% BOM savings for Ford The iron and phosphate are some of the most abundant materials on the planet Provides 2-4 longer lifespan compared to lithium ion Not a fire hazard (Big plus for Ford right now) No charging rules. You can charge to 100% and drain to 0% with no ill effects Cons: As of now the energy density is 50% lower than lithium ion. Could be on par with lithium ion in the future. Vehicles using iron phosphate batteries are typically heavier due to needing more cells to make up for the lack of battery density Link

For your viewing entertainment. Obviously this excludes the Canadian oil sands which technically is a form of mining. https://i.imgur.com/ajUXPjHl.jpg That’s the Escondida copper mine in northern Chile. No lithium there. I makes for a great story though. No but it sure could tell a story for the future.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52268502615_6bc7ddd934_c.jpg Dangers of Oil Refineries to Workers and Nearby Residents Oil refineries house combustible chemicals. They must store these chemicals properly. Otherwise, refinery chemicals can cause fires and explosions that result in accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Also, some refinery chemicals are highly acidic. They should not come into contact with the skin. Refineries can release benzene, xylene, and other hazardous chemicals. These chemicals can cause serious breathing issues and other chronic health problems if inhaled. Moreover, refineries are leading sources of nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and sulfur dioxide. These pollutants can endanger refinery workers and the environment. Refineries are responsible for providing workers with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). They must operate per federal, state, and local health and safety requirements. Why didn't you include a Volcano eruption?

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

The no more 2022’s is wrong a friend who ordered a 350 SRW CCSB in Feb has build date of 8-8 and tentative dealer date of 9-13. Welcome to the world of supply chain problems.

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

An "Independent opinion" Good luck finding that. If you remember the prior term for "Climate change". It was global cooling due to increase in CO2, until it was determined that term didn't fit the agenda. **** data couldn't support the position. However, we call it climate change, ahh now there is a term that is much more flexible. So now everything from the recent floods in KY, hurricanes, drought in the West and anything else that can possibly be linked to Climate Change is used as fodder to fill the disinformation cannon. Worse thing is some people actual believe it. Only 10K years ago there was severe climate change with zero human influence. The change so abrupt that places that would be considered tropical, became covered in glaciers. If you remember high school earth science class they told you all about it. Point being, human influence on the planet likely has some impact currently, but not nearly enough to justify the extreme position. It was happening way before human influence stepped in. The data to support the climate change agenda is weak at best and purposely deceptive at its worst. So now finding Independent Information not influenced by political opinion and personal bias seems impossible. The result is where we are now..."**** the torpedoes, full speed ahead" toward solving a problem (costing countless Trillions of dollars and untold pain and suffering) that may not exist. The point about changing the column is spot on, wish we had a "like" button.This is what I can't understand. You and I aren't in any position to even have access to this data, much less interpret it. The people who have the data and can understand it are in agreement. Do we listen to them or some TV commentator or politician? Folks should ask themselves who stands to gain from promoting this anti-science sentiment. Something tells me you're a Dr. Fauci fanboy!

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

The ICE is only 120 years old. That’s still new technology in the grand scheme of things. To introduce a new type of power will take another 100 years to perfect. Until then you can not mandate something that is only effective for 20% of the population! The first rechargeable battery was invented in 1859. Link

2023 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

I really like the new Chevy Colorado and the partial front end view of the new GMC Canyon. Also, GM dumped the diesel option for these Chevy's and very likely for the GMC too. With Ford in the process of releasing the new Ranger, Stellantis Dakota your next! Enjoy... Link BTW... I sure would rather have one of these mid-size trucks over a full size EV truck.

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Did you read the article? Sure did. I fact let me quote the very first line: Tesla has told users in Texas not to charge their cars during a heat wave The OP article said this: Until someone figures out how to double or triple the energy density of lithium-ion batteries, that seems like the most we can ask of electric vehicles that are pressed into towing duty. Remember when I talked about Energy Density and towing? Just like I said, there is a problem with the grid with just 1 to 2% of electric cars. Even Tesla knows it and they did the right thing by begging people to not charge their cars during certain times or the grid would crash. And these are cars with small batteries. Just think what will happen if there was 5 or 10% of electric big rigs in Texas sucking off of the electric grid teat. :E By the way. We now know why TFL didn't tow a travel trailer to Alaska. And before anybody starts sniveling and whining let me make this reminder: This is an RV site for RV related topics. And this is the TOW VEHICAL forum where we discuss tow vehicles. If you think this is a cool truck that will work great as a people mover......cool.......go to a soccer moms dot com forum and you will more than likely be welcomed with open arms. Home Depo forums would work with this truck too. Remember, this is a tow vehicle form where we discuss vehicles that tow. This truck is an "epic fail" at towing, so be it. Same way if someone came on this forum and said they want to tow their new 30 foot travel trailer with their 2022 Corvette I'm going to say, bad idea and your car will suck at towing. I'm not saying a 2022 Vett sucks. I'm saying it sucks at towing......just exactly like this truck. soccer moms dot.com forum = LOL Sniveling = LMAO :B

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Epic Fail... What I don't like is Ford offers a tow package, but can only muster 90 miles towing ~8k lbs. I can't believe the auto industry is going full bore with these EV trucks. Here's another fail by International truck. Link

RE: 2022 Silverado 3.0 update

Good report. It's shame that diesels are probably on the way out and Chevy's latest release of the Colorado no longer includes a diesel option. GM is dropping the current 3.0, but replacing it with a new version for 2023. New Duramax Yes and it sounds like some good changes are coming, but I still believe diesels are being targeted by the EPA and worry they will be the first victom of the EV/EPA push.

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

Why is someone else powering their vehicle differently than you wrong? And why can’t someone else call their rig a camper even if you believe it isn’t a camper? :S Aaaaa where did I ever say it was "wrong"? Go on, quote me. :S Aaaa if you want to call your dog a cat it makes no difference to me. It's still a dog though. Lets get real here. How many people on this forum camp in a canopy? Not a motorhome, not a 5th wheel, not a truck camper or a travel trailer......but a canopy? Raise your hand if you take your family on a vacation in your canopy on the back of your truck. Out of all the forums on this site there is no truck canopy forum. Maybe you can change that and petition and get a canopy forum?:R If FLT wants to show the viability of camping in an EV truck so be it. Hook it up to a 24 to 26 foot travel trailer (the gross majority of what F150 owners camp with) and have at it. To put some dumb canopy on the back of the thing and call it camping is lame. That's not what the majority of Americans do. FLT already compared the Lightning to a gas powered truck and the Lightning was an Epic Fail. If they were to pull a camper one could only imagine how long it would take to complete this video series. Bottom line the Lightning should not be marketed for towing plain and simple and is more suitable for urban daily commuting.

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Yep... I may have to book a trip with Capt. Ron But but, he tows his boat to the lunch ramp with his 2001 RAM truck! That could be a life altering event for you. https://i.imgur.com/tSWRXg2l.jpg But he would know exactly how to fix it if we broke down. Would be nice having a "CLOSET CUMMINS GUY" along riding ShotGun!!! Not really... I drove our 05 5.9 Dodge truck fourth July weekend. Also based on my experience, it takes only 1 Ford to pull the boat, camper, utility trailer, etc. https://i.imgur.com/oySE0pQl.jpg

RE: Raptor R Scary Fast July 18

It’s not a concern! Mopar won’t let it stay that way very long! Does Mopar know that Dodge CEO announced that the Hellcat engine will be ending production in 2023? Yes, but there are other options coming out. Like a 500HP twin turbo straight 6. And this is the standard output engine! My money is on the Shelby GT 500 Predator V8 engine over any I6 engine.
