If the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon piqued your interest, you'll be glad to know the models will be more powerful than originally expected.
According to General Motors, the entry-level 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine will produce 200 bhp (149 kW) and 191 lb-ft (258 Nm) of torque. The 3.6-liter V6, on the other hand, will develop 305 bhp (227 kW) and 269 lb-ft (364 Nm) of torque.
Both engines will be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that has been "specifically" designed for trucks and offers auto grade braking and a tow/haul mode. A six-speed manual will also be available but only on select extended cab models with rear-wheel drive.
GM is keeping coy on fuel economy numbers but the company said "class-leading horsepower also comes with efficiency, courtesy of dual-overhead camshafts with variable valve timing, direct injection, and jet-spray piston cooling, while aluminum blocks and forged-steel crankshafts ensure a long-life cycle."
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
