    Thanks mate for the kind offer but they can shove it. Took an edge for a spin and the 2017 double cab. Very nice but actually and surprisingly both the Colorado and the new BT50 (we won't be going there) were nicer to drive on the actual road and have more "gadgets" to keep the missus happy.

    You only need a doggy/shopping wagon. Suzuki swift should do the job. The price dif would also help the `Toy` fund

    Checked out the Isuzu offering? They seem to have a good reputation.

    But if you go Isuzu you get a better badge.

    Have Holden stopped their habit of replacing enough bits on the Isuzu motor to make them unreliable?

    Looking at the specs they are a different vehicle. The Holden is running a 2.8L and squeezing out 147kW while the Isuzu are running a 3.0L with a mild 130kW.

    Think the Colorado runs an Italian VM diesel while the D-Max runs an Isuzu. Current generation D-Max and Colorado are closely related. Next generation D-Max and BT-50 will apparently be co-developed between Mazda and Isuzu.
