Chevrolet Colorado

The mid-size pickup truck market has been all but abandoned by the domestic automakers over the last few years, leaving this category entirely to Toyota and Nissan with the Tacoma and Frontier trucks.

Wait until next year and the choice will include the all-new Colorado from Chevrolet. Building off the success of the all-new full-size Silverado, the engineers have taken the same approach to this new truck. Their chief engineer told me that the interior will be just as quiet and refined as the bigger brother. He went on to tell me mid size truck owners are looking more for maneuverability and fuel economy.

On the economy front, there will be three engines to choose from. Out of gate, there is the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6. In the second model year the Colorado will be equipped with a 2.8L diesel 4-cylinder, being the first truck to have a diesel in this class.

Interestingly, the same Italian company that makes the new V6 diesel for the Ram 1500 supplies it to GM.
