    Underneath the hood of the all-wheel-drive K5 is a modified version of the Vortec 6000 V8 truck engine, making 440 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 450 lb-ft of torque at 4700 rpm and mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

    Can't really say I don't like it now...

    The only thing that would stop me from buying a new car would be the sheer volume of electronic controls, and "unknowns". I don't want a black box watching me drive, and I don't feel completely comfortable with "drive by wire".
    If I could be garaunteed there was no snooping or monitoring, I'd be all over it...

    I was basically going on looks. I've always looked at my trucka nd thought I could put a door on my jimmy to make it a little easier for passengers (if it was full convertible).
    Then the next day I have my period and don't want the bench seat.

    it looks like they put the back end of an amigo on a chevy front. must be detroit inbreeding. the automotive family gets smaller and smaller and so does the gene pool.
