    Your comparing two completely different vehicles from two different era's. What is so magical about the new body style Colorado that will drop the used market price of a completely different vehicle brand that the old body style Colorado didn't do? It's not a repackaged 2nd gen T. T market is pretty flat price wise, clean, low mileage Alpha T's still command the same 25-32. High mileage beat to crap are still 16-18k.
    I bought mine for 27k in cash 3 years ago, took two hours to do the paperwork during which 6 people called from various parts of the country wanted to buy it outright and have it shipped while I was sitting there filling out the title paperwork. I doubt if I go buy a used ZR2 Colorado tomorrow I would have the same experience.

I have no doubt that 20 years from now, and possibly much sooner, a 2009 H3T Alpha will be worth more than a 2017 ZR2. This thread isn't about what might happen 20 years down the road, it's about what might happen in the next 2 or 3 years.

What the ZR2 & Canyon Denali have that I cannot get is that pretty sweet 8speed auto. Those are pretty nice. It made my H3T feel a little bit dated. I wish I could even get a 6 speed in there. I don't know which is better for the trail and/or rock climbing, but if I blow up a transmission, I'd rather have the bill for a 4speed rebuild.
    I should have a six speed in my T by next year this time, been collecting parts slowly for the swap

    Please create a thread about this when you get around to doing the swap. I'm sure plenty of us here would be interested in it.

    If someone can figure out the shift cluster issue then it would be a great swap with a regear.

    It's simple, the ZR2 the first real off road capable mid-size truck from GM since the T. I have nothing bad to say about the H3T (other than the under powered i5), I used to own and wheel one. The ZR2 is not a different era, there is a 7 year gap not 2 or 3 decades. Also, the ZR2 is not a completely different vehicle form a completely different brand. Both are GM and very similar to each other, and designed by many of the same people.

    I'm not saying used ZR2s are going to bring down T prices, I'm posing the question of whether or not people think they will. It's ok to say the Hummer brand and visual styling means the T values will be unaffected. However, to deny that the ZR2 is basically a spiritual successor to the H3T is just wrong. http://gmauthority.com/blog/2016/11/...gacy-left-off/

    Pretty cook truck IMO, the problem i see (and i could be wrong here) is dealing with the fancy multimatic suspension set up. Can you put a lift on it to run larger tires? does multimatic offer shocks/struts that are designed for a 4 inch lift? (or anyone else for that matter) How about swapping them out for a fox/king/or other manufacturer shock/strut assembly, and what kind of problems will that cause with the computer?

    It will be interesting to see how the aftermarket adapts to this, or if people would rather just buy a normal colorado and mod it vs getting a zr2.

    I wouldn't buy one if I were planning to lift or put much larger tires on it then what it comes with... to me that's the whole point of a truck like this is that it's "tuned" with warranty.... but you know there will be guys buying them and messing with everything

    You sure about that price? Obviously miles and location play a big part, but I can't see an I5 H3T getting $30k. Maybe if it had 25k miles or something. I've been poking around looking at prices online and T Alphas I'm seeing are in the mid to upper $20s, with high mileage ones in the high teens to low twenties. I5 models are anywhere from mid-teens to mid-twenties. I do see the occasional $30k+ asking price, but those are more the exception than the rule.

    Lately, the asking price for an i5 H3T here in Qatar can go as low as 10k, with 60k miles (not adventure)... meaning you can prob grab one for 8k with some negotiating.

    All west trucks = NO rust to speak off.

    In rust belt states prices are usually lower. But who wants 8 year old rust bucket.

    All the higher priced ones are really low mileage (sub 100K for a 8 yr old or greater vehicle), they'll always command a higher price, so you're still not comparing apples to apples there. That $19K one with 135K on it is more realistic of the actual average price for one. Plus it's Kali, you're generally going to see higher pricers there for pretty much everything.
