The stagnant mid-size truck segment is about to get shaken up in a big way, as Chevrolet unveils the new Colorado mid-sizer at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Available in extended or crew cab versions with either a 5 or 6-foot bed, the Colorado will be available with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine (193 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque) or a 3.6L V6 engine (302 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque) backed by a 6-speed automatic. Later on, a 2.8L diesel 4-cylinder will be available. Final power figures aren’t available, but in Thai-spec, the engine puts out 200 horsepower and 368 lb-ft. All engines are backed by a 6-speed automatic.
The Colorado is expected to exceed the small truck segment’s leading tow rating of 6700 lbs, and a Z71 off-road package will also be available.
