How big is the Kodiak C4500 pickup that Chevrolet was showing off at the Chicago Auto Show? They had to build a staircase so people could see into the cab. That’s big. You can get it as a 4 x 4 Crew Cab that will sit six adults comfortably. You have the choice of a Vortec 8100 MD V8 gas guzzler or a Duramax 6600 turbo diesel. An automatic Allison transmission is standard.
Sure it looks like a jacked up monster on the outside, but there is plenty of fun inside, too. It has a touch-panel DVD-based navigation system and an MTX sound system for audio-visual pleasure. The sound is made even better thanks to a stealth-enclosed subwoofer and amp in the center console.
If you and six friends would rather drive over traffic instead of waiting behind it, and you have an extra 70 grand kicking around, the Kodiak may just be for you.
