2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon Start Shipping to Dealers
Wait for Highly Anticipated New Trucks Ends Soon
Starting today, deliveries of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks are on their way to dealerships across the country, meaning the nearly two-year sales drought of these models will soon be over. As we reported earlier, dealers have been overwhelmed with interest and response in the trucks, with pre-orders running seven times the number they expected.
With an all-new design compared to Nissan and Toyota’s nearly decade-old trucks, General Motors’ midsize twins promise to raise the bar substantially in terms of refinement. They have already set the bar higher in EPA fuel economy, with highway figures of 26 and 24 mpg reported for the 2WD and 4WD models, respectively, with the 3.6L V-6 engine.
Fuel economy figures for the standard 2.5L I-4 have not yet been announced, nor have figures for the upcoming 2.8L Duramax I-4 diesel, which will be offered as an option on the 2016 models. Like most of the rest of GM’s 2015 lineup, the Colorado and Canyon will also be offered with an optional OnStar 4G LTE connectivity system allowing for high-speed mobile connectivity for up to seven devices simultaneously. We’ll be driving these new trucks soon, so stay tuned to TruckTrend.com for the latest updates on the new Colorado and Canyon!
