Colorado / Canyon Rollout



But whereas GM’s bigger pickups are all about towing and hauling capability, the message behind the Colorado and Canyon will focus on the lifestyle aspect of ownership. “You know you want a truck, this truck,” is the go-to-market message for the Colorado.

“It’s a pickup you can commute in every day, and it’s sophisticated enough for the weekend,” Piszar says.

The first batch of pickups to arrive at dealers will be the volume-grabbing crew cabs with the longer, 74-in. (183-cm) box. Within a couple of weeks, GM’s Wentzville, MO, assembly plant will begin producing crew-cab models with the 62-in. (157-cm) box.

Output of extended-cab pickups with the long box will follow. Dealers should have a full complement of body styles by January.

For the Colorado, GM expects close to 70% of buyers to choose the 3.6L V-6 with a 6-speed automatic transmission over the 2.5L 4-cyl. with the identical gearbox. Only a handful of buyers are expected to mate the smaller engine with a manual transmission.

For the 2016 model year, Colorado and Canyon will add a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel to the engine lineup. Technical details and EPA fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.

Colorado / Canyon Rollout hits the brakes.

Quote :
General Motors is issuing a stop-delivery order for its latest midsize pickups, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, because the driver's side airbag might not be wired correctly. The total number of vehicles affected is still being determined.

According to the statement from GM, the problem, "affects the vehicles' two-stage airbag system by reversing the deployment sequence and disrupting the deployment timing of the driver airbag stages." That means in an accident the bag may not work correctly

GM used to have some of the best wire harnesses when they still owned Packard electric and it was produced in here in warren ohio.
