Colorado in Michigan

I like the looks, the height, and the handling. I can seat 5 people and, by putting a fiberglass tonneau cover on the bed, I have the greatest "trunk". No putting down seats to haul stuff. During my first snow storm experience, the four-wheel drive functioned great. However,without a rear window defroster, the rear window and back side windows fogged/iced up and my outside mirrors were covered by falling snow, so to me, this is a safety concern. I went to my GM dealer, as well as 5 off-market businesses, looking for a rear window defroster, but no one makes it.
Seating 5 people and still hauling stuff. Riding higher counts both as a view factor and a safety factor. Four- wheel drive gives me a very safe feeling. My truck feels more solid than a car.
Colorado needs a rear window defroster. Could be more peppy on acceleration.
