The current generation Chevrolet Colorado has proven to be not only a hot seller for Chevrolet dealerships, it's also the key offering that has single-handedly revived the mid-size pickup truck segment.

Most people will keep standing there just long enough to drop their gaze to see if you're wearing socks with your Birkenstocks and invent a sick family member/pet/head-of-state they have to visit—like right now—before they sprint away from you.
