The best midsize truck in its class finds a new, well-deserved home.

Super Bowl 49 was the most exciting championship game in history, and the last-second game-sealing interception by Malcolm Butler solidified Tom Brady's status as one of the two best quarterbacks in history (Joe Montana is still #1, 49er fans). So when GM awarded him a shiny new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as part of his MVP award, many fans thought the undrafted rookie cornerback from West Alabama deserved it. He did, after all, steal the game from the Seahawks and sealed the win for the Patriots. In a show of class and generosity, Tom Brady did just that. He gave the Colorado ZL1 4x4 Crew Cab to Butler, who probably would value it a bit more, since his $420,000 salary pales in comparison to Brady's $14 million payment.
