American car companies are slowly but surely caving in to my constant goading and starting to make smaller trucks. Not much smaller, sadly, but it's a start. Like Chevy's new midsize Colorado, which will be unveiled at the LA Auto Show.

The international-platform'd truck has been online before, but just going on Chevy's press photo, we can see that the truck will have a at least two headlights capable of penetrating grey satin, and a generally truck-like shape. Size-wise, it is a bit smaller than their full-size offerings, with a relatively low greenhouse and high beltline.

If for some reason you want to watch the reveal live, Chevy's thoughtfully provided a video link over aweek or so in advance, so you can keep it up on your monitor at all times to guarantee you won't miss a thrilling second of sheet-pulling-off-truck action.

We'll cover the truck in full when the LA Auto Show comes around, and I'll probably try to get Chevy to loan me one. I have a lot of crap in my driveway that needs hauling away, after all.
