WENTZVILLE, Mo. – Cherolet and GMC announced that its two newest entries in the midsize truck segment are one step closer to being on the road, with the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon shipping to dealers today.
General Motors says the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will offer what it calls segment-leading fuel economy for V-6 midsize pickup trucks, based on EPA fuel economy estimates.
For V-6 pickups with automatic transmissions, which make up the majority of midsize truck sales, GM says the Colorado and Canyon offer highway fuel economy 3 to 5 mpg better than competitors.
GMC revealed the 2015 Canyon recently, an all-new midsize truck the company says will redefine the segment and raises the bar for everything from horsepower and efficiency to quietness and refinement. It will be offered with an available 302-horsepower V6 and a Duramax 2.8L turbodiesel in 2016.
When it goes on sale this year, the all-new Canyon will give GMC one of the only three-truck lineups in the industry. It is expected to deliver class-leading capabilities with the brand’s signature refinement – all in an efficiently sized, maneuverable package for customers who want the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility of a truck without the size of a full-size pickup.
