Photo 2/100 | 2015 GMC Canyon SLT Rear | All Canyon and Colorado models come standard with the rear step bumper introduced on their 1/2-ton brothers.
Photo 3/100 | 2015 GMC Canyon Wheel | For those looking to hit the dirt, both the Canyon All-Terrain and Colorado Z71 come equipped with aggressive Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure tires and 18x8.5-inch wheels.
Photo 4/100 | 2015 GMC Canyon SLT Dash | The GMC Canyon can be optioned with the most luxurious interior available in the midsize pickup segment. Soft-touch material, premium leather, live stitching, and real aluminum are used throughout.
Photo 5/100 | 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Interior | On the other end of the spectrum is the entry-level Colorado WT. Besides the cloth seats and absence of some trim flair, even the most basic model is still relatively loaded. If you want something in-between, there’s a trim level for everyone.
Photo 6/100 | 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Front | Extended-cab models come equipped with a 6 foot 2 inch bed, and this particular two-wheel-drive specimen was stuffed with the 200hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine. We found this combination to be the perfect truck for anyone not needing the seating capacity of a Crew Cab or towing capacity of the six-cylinder engine.
Photo 7/100 | 2015 GMC Canyon SLT V6 | The high-volume powerplant is the 3.6L V-6. It’s equipped with variable valve timing (VVT), a dual overhead-cam valvetrain, high-pressure direct fuel injection, and an aluminum cylinder block and head. All of this combines for an impressive 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.
Photo 8/100 | 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Engine | For those seeking better fuel economy there is an optional 2.5L four-cylinder. With all the same features as the six, this engine cranks out 200 hp and 191 lb-ft.
Photo 9/100 | 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Fuel Tank Door | Located behind the fuel door of all Colorado and Canyons is the only sign of the coming 2.8L Duramax diesel engine. Next to the fuel cap is a spot reserved for the future diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) fill port.
Photo 10/100 | 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Front Three Quarters | When equipped with the 3.6L engine and Z82 trailering package, both Colorado and Canyon are rated to tow 7,000 pounds. The truck barely broke a sweat when hitched to a pair of jet skies, making it perfect for people who occasionally tow a boat, motorcycles, or UTVs.
