GM announced pricing for their mid-size trucks, with the Chevrolet Colorado starting at $20,995 and the GMC Canyon starting at $21,880.

Those sticker prices are ostensibly for a base, 2WD extended cab with a 6-speed manual transmission. Crew cab versions with V6 power and 4WD will cost more, with GM telling the media

“…the Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and the 5-foot box has a starting price, including dealer freight, of $27,985. The Colorado Z71 crew cab 4×4 with the 5-foot box starts at $34,990…”

GM was more loose with details on the Canyon

“…beginning with the SLE trim level, with prices starting at $27,520 (2WD extended cab), Canyon customers get aluminum interior trim, soft-touch instrument panel and door pads, EZ-lift and lower tailgate, eight-inch diagonal color-touch radio with Intellilink, and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with a three-month or three-GB trial (whichever comes first). A 4WD Canyon SLT crew cab short box model starts at $37,875, and includes the 3.6L V-6 engine with 305 horsepower, leather-appointed seating, automatic climate control, 18-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels, remote start and an automatic locking rear differential.”

Detailed pricing and fuel economy figures are said to be announced closer to launch.

    Well now we know GM was never planning on selling any mid-sizers here after all what a shame.

    By "standard cab", did you mean "extended cab"? Sorry, no "regular cab" Colorado/Canyons this time around. And no more regular cab midsizers after the '14 Tacomas are gone. So if you want a new regular cab, now would be a good time to panic... That slightly throws off everyone's comparison of "base trucks", then vs now. So if approx $21K is MSRP for base "extended cabs", that's about what the "Access cab" Tacos are, or will be for '15. Still it's hard to ignore fullsize "regular cabs" for slightly more. Or less, after rebates.

      @Lou_BC - The #5 "Best Selling" truck in Canada ain't sayin' much. The Tacoma has improved a "dramatic" 20% in 3 years, but look at which of it's direct competitors were killed off in that time period. Most of it's competitors actually. In theory, Taco sales should have at least doubled. Anything less is pathetic! The Tacoma, even while basically having the entire midsize market to itself in Canada, got beat by the Tundra in July, for some weird reason. That puts it down a notch at #6. You don't know jack about Canada. Or its truck scene. Or is that Lou_BC as in Baja_California???

    Normally a link to a Motley Fool article is usually a guaranteed "no-jump" but I followed the link and think the gist of the article is correct. In the world of car & truck marketing, tens if not hundreds of thousands of rubes will be lured by the the truck with "(U)p to 28 Empeegees if equipped with a [methamphetamine powered hamster]~Boost engine." I like a lot of what Ford is doing but heavy vehicles with puny, over-boosted gas engines doesn't bode well for Jane/Joe Consumer.

      @Denvermike - you still haven't refuted my comments. Or is Winnipeg the new centre of the Canadian Universe?

    $33,068. That's how much my ideal new truck for towing my track car is slated to cost, optioned with a diesel, limited slip, quad cab, cloth interior, air suspension, rear-view camera and trailering package. It's got active grille shutters and an 8-speed auto. Everything I'd want in a truck, chrome for resale value, no leather, no power seats, no big useless stereo (although that price includes Bluetooth and a CD player), no cowboy Cadillac bits. We're talking about a truck that would get 28mpg+ on the freeway and likely 22+mpg average(making it 4mpg more economical than my current daily driver car, in addition to running cheaper fuel), be able to tow up to 9200lbs, and would handle all the parts running for my position at my business. I'm just saying- these GM trucks are smaller but don't seem to be any cheaper to purchase and run for the same features.

      @Lou_BC Does selling trucks with sh!tty ratings automatically mean they are telling the truth? A guy on another site looked at Ram's 3500 dually that is supposed to tow 30,000 lbs. A simple math exercise based on tongue weight meant that the Ram would need a 55 lb driver to not be overloaded. I might be off a bit on recalling the exact numbers but basically it can tow that weight if no one sits in the cab.
