Autoblog's #2 Most-Read Post of the Year

Never underestimate the power of geeks is the lesson we learned from Autoblog's #2 Most-Read Post of the Year, titled "Pics of Nissan Terranaut reveal vehicle perfect for Picard and his crew."

RUMOR MILL: New platform for Colorado/Canyon/H3 in the works?

One of the more common complaints about the GMT355-based trucks (Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Hummer H3) is their lack of power.
