2015 Colorado Will be Released in Late 2014
General Motors has confirmed that the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon will be released late in 2014, which likely means they’ll be released as 2015 models. I do expect we’ll get to see what it looks like earlier in 2014.
There aren’t many details about what sort of engines the Colorado or Canyon will receive. But I could see GM using their 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 in combination with one or two 4 cylinder options. In addition to that, we can only hope GM will bring one if its diesels over from its Canyon’s currently for sale elsewhere in the world. This 2.8 liter engine has 180 horsepower and whopping 347 ft-lb’s of torque! Both Ford and Ram will finally be bringing diesels to the US, I hope Chevy will join them by bringing this engine over.
From spy shots on various websites we can see that the Colorado caught testing here in the US looks a lot like the Global 2012 model I’ve posted in this article. Particularly the shape of the rear windows is very similar.
