chevy gives us an idea of the size of the new colorado ahead of la reveal

Having already launched the all new fullsize 2014 Silverado & GMC Sierra pickups and 2015 Heavy Duty versions of those trucks this year, General Motors is turning its attention to midsize trucks as it gets ready to reveal the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. GM has already teased photos of parts of those trucks’ front ends and now they’ve released another image, this time of a draped Colorado sitting next to the new Silverado.

While the new truck is covered up, the photo does give us an idea of its scale, which appears to be significantly larger than the previous Colorado. Production will begin next year at GM’s Wentzville, Missouri assembly plant. Chevy says that it “is engineered to be the most capable, most versatile and technologically advanced midsized truck in the market.”. You can watch the reveal live from the LA show on November 20 here.

    Here's the Izuzu version of the Colorado. Different body treatment, engine and drive train. Looks much nicer.

    So Ford does not want to bring the new Ranger to the US because it's not much smaller than a full size and GM is doing it anyway... There is still a big difference in engineering between a full size and a mid size and, that does not mean a difference in performance. It means a big advantage in fuel savings with comparable performance and reliability. I suspect GM is betting on the eventual death of the full size, or at least, a majority move to "mid" size. I also think they are on the money, this time.

      @Beerboy12 - There's currently no domestic Big 3, mid-size trucks and that's worth an automatic 100,000+ sales. Cities, counties and other government offices buy import brands as a last resort. It's the same with many fleet customers, especially in middle America. Mostly strippers at a huge discount. GM gets instant sales success. Likely at the expensive of profitability. GM is still GM.

  • Vatchy "Will easily dust a 16yo Accord"No, it won't. Did you miss the part about it not running?
  • Cprescott Odd pairing since Cadihack builds breadboxes on wheels and no one cares about their cramped and overpriced cars.
  • MrIcky I'm not bashing iphone, I'm pretty cell phone agnostic but the iphone 15 has had a really rocky start, particularly the titanium back plate model (the aluminum is much better apparently). The titanium back plate model has a number of reports about getting extraordinarily hot with wireless charging and has caused issues beyond just in a BMW. It's also been fracturing under fairly low bending pressure. Apparently the aluminum case model is sturdy enough just like the i14, but the high zoot titanium model has a super thin titanium plate for the rear and sides and it isn't close to as rigid because it's so thin. They think the thinness and titaniums properties are part of the heat issues. Maybe hired some Ford materials engineers? Haaay-yooooo
  • RealTalk Keep up the good fight. I’d wager that none of the corporate bootlicker commenters here have ever worked in automotive manufacturing. As such, their understanding of the conflict is tainted and their opinions are wildly out of touch.
  • EBFlex Absolutely useless truck. Ford trying to make this pile of garbage seem more appealing because they can't sell them.Funny that they announce this a day or two after they cancel dealer stock orders due to quality issues. This company is a ship without a rudder
