Re: Where did Chevorlet go wrong? I think GM probably has their reasons for doing things the way they did with this trucks performance. They wanted to get people's reactions and leave room for improvements for next year. If it stays in production, it should have more horsepower and a manual transmition next year. I just hope they dont take as long as the PT Cruiser took. The PT Cruiser didnt' get much improvement untill a few years later when they finally got a Turbo.
