C&D article refers to the AT4X as the equivalent of the ZR2. Looking at the pictures, it seems:

AT4 = ZR2
AT4X = ZR2 Baja

The AT4 looks more aggressive than the Trail Boss. Is there no direct comparison??

Car prices make no sense anymore. Nothing makes sense anymore. Growing up, Ferrari prices were aspirational. Now domestic mid-size truck prices are aspirational.

Regardless, this looks really nice. As does the Colorado. I aspire to one day consider purchasing one.

Also, as an aside, if GM would extend this into a 5-door wagon-type body, on this platform, and really take it to the 4Runner, I'd be extremely interested.

So with destination and a mere $5000 ADM, you're looking at $70,000 for a midsize American pickup with a 4-cylinder engine. I would never have guessed two years ago this is where we'd end up.

With the exclusive CCSB format, IMO, these are lifestyle/fun trucks, like buying Patagonia at REI. I'm sure there will be 4x4 W/T and/or 1LS trims with prices that start with a 3. But I can see the appeal of this, getting something you can take off-road with a warranty that's turn-key instead of having to order a bunch of stuff, pay for it to get installed, constantly tweak it to get it right, voiding some of the warranty, etc etc etc.

If you leave off a lot of the lux stuff, regular trucks are still pretty attainable in the grand scheme of things. This has the 7.3, 4x4, rear locker, a winch, power package, FX4 for $54k - obviously not as nimble as this Colorado but that is a lot of power and capability.

The 2020 ZR2 wasn't cheap, either:

I think GMC is trying to make itself the premium version and maybe actually make a mildly different product. The Colorado gets W/T trims and per Car and Driver they're estimating they start at $28k
