GM released pricing details on the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks. The base Colorado, which features an extended cab and a 205-hp 2.5-liter inline-4 engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission starts at $20,995 including $895 destination, while the base Canyon starts at $21,880 including $925 destination.
Both trucks come standard with a 200-hp 2.5-liter I-4 mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The base Colorado features power windows, a locking tailgate, and back-up camera as standard. Available options for the Colorado will include a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 with a 6-speed automatic transmission, 4G LTE with a built-in WiFi hotspot, Forward Collision Alert and Land Departure Warning, and an accessory system for assisting in cargo organization and storage. General Motors notes that full option pricing will be available closer to launch.
The crew cab comes with either a 5- or 6-foot bed, while extended cab models come only with the 6-foot box. Some pricing examples were provided; the Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and the 5-foot box has a starting price of $27,985, and the Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with the 5-foot box starts at $34,990.
Helping to justify the price difference, the Canyon comes standard with LED headlights, a four-way power driver’s seat, and unique 16-inch aluminum wheels. Also available is the SLE trim level, starting at $27,520. The SLE model adds aluminum interior trim, soft-touch instrument panel and door pads, EZ-lift-and-lower tailgate, 8.0-inch diagonal touchscreen with Intellilink infotainment system, and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. A 4WD Canyon SLT crew cab short box model begins at $37,875, and includes leather-trimmed seating, automatic climate control, 18-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels, remote start and an automatic locking rear differential.
GM says EPA numbers and torque figures will be released closer to the trucks' fall 2014 launch date.
