TTAC readers looking to debate the “mid-size vs. full-size” truck matter have more fodder now that GM has unveiled a teaser photo of their new mid-size trucks.
The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will go into production next year, with a debut rumored for as soon as November’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Based on the Thai-developed global mid-size truck platform, the trucks will be the lone mid-size domestic entries, and will compete with aging mid-size products like the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier.

Well, the Holden Colorado looks pretty awesome, but wow. They better not cost $45000 US like they do in Aussie bucks.
All I want is to be able to drive off road and occasionally move furniture so I would be thrilled to see medium duty trucks make a comeback
@Big Al--Your Mazda at 30k would be competitive with a crew cab, 4 wheel drive, and heated leather seats. My wife's new 2013 Honda CRV was 31k with AWD, heated leather seats, navigation, all weather package with mud flaps. My 2008 Isuzu crew cab with 4 wheel drive, tow package, and heated leather seats listed at 31k new which I paid a lot less for new. A fair comparison of trucks should be a full size and a midsize with the same cab configuration and the same options. A comparable optioned truck to your Mazda and my Isuzu would be a new full size crew cab 4x4 with tow package and heated leather seats that would sticker in at least the 50k range. Sure put a discount on the hood but it would still be more. If one needs or wants bigger then they will buy it regardless of price but do not compare a single or extend cab to a loaded midsize crew cab, its apples and oranges. As for an affordable trim line, GM will have to price these competitively in order for them to be successful.
@Big Al--Heated leather seats are a more common option on a full size pickup. That was one reason I bought the Isuzu with driving mostly in Jan thru March. Also it was an outstanding deal It is very hard to find heated leather seat on any midsize truck.
