The Chevrolet Colorado was jointly developed by the North American operations of GM, GM Brazil and Isuzu designed operations, H3, based on the GMT355, itself the basis for the GMT 345-based Hummer.

Paying for all those Z06 bits boosts the price by $4510 over the old Z51, but at $55,720 to start, it’s about 20 grand cheaper than the aluminum-frame 7.0-liter Z06.
