GM has release this teaser photo of the front grilles of its small pickup trucks, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, which are not due to start production until later next year. Earlier reports suggested there might be a name change but that doesn't seem to be the case.
The two midsize pickups are part of GM's overall small/medium/large truck strategy (Colorado/Silverado 1500/Silverado Heavy Duty), where the smallest of the group will offer the best fuel-efficient choices. Although no specifics have been released about powertrain options, we expect there to be a turbo-diesel and multiple EcoTec3 choices.
By the time these smaller options reach the marketplace, GM will have the newest and most comprehensive lineup of pickups in the industry. Production for the 2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon is scheduled to start in 2014 at GM’s Wentzville, Mo., assembly center.
