2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon order guides reveal added power

Quote :
General Motors' Fleet Order Guide system is often the canary in the coal mine for interesting changes on new models. The recent guide for the 2015 Corvette unveiled all sorts of changes that weren't yet known about the sports car. Now, it's time for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon to take their bow in the spotlight, and they look worth the wait. The new midsize trucks are getting a touch more power than first thought, as well as some very nice features.

Extended Cab models of both trucks come standard with a 2.5-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder rated at 200 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 191 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. That's a bit more than the 193 hp and 184 lb-ft originally reported for the duo. The standard transmission for the extended trucks is a six-speed manual, but the Work Truck trim is also available with an optional six-speed automatic. Towing for the four-cylinder is rated at 3,500 pounds.

Crew Cab models come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 hp at 6,800 rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 rpm, with a six-speed automatic. That's also somewhat different than the originally reported rating of 302 hp and 270 lb-ft. Towing for the V6 is rated at 7,000 pounds.

Both trucks come standard with convenient features like a rearview camera, four-way power adjustable driver's seat and 4.2-inch infotainment system on all models. An eight-inch system is standard on higher trim levels of both pickups. Options are extremely plentiful, as expected, and where the trucks differentiate themselves slightly. For example, the Canyon is available with an All-Terrain Package on the SLE trim that adds single-zone automatic climate control, an off-road suspension, locking rear differential, hill descent control and some styling enhancements.

We've gallerized both order guides for your perusal. You can see them both at the link below. Unfortunately, neither guide currently lists any specs for the 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax diesel due to be added to the trucks for 2016.

Haven't looked it up, would be interesting to compare the weight of the Traverse/Acadia/Enclave to these trucks as they use the same engine with minimal differences. Driving the 3.6 in the Acadia I found to be very competent.

When's start of production for the Colorado and Canyon?

I haven't heard an exact date yet, other than 'on sale Fall 2014'.

Rumblings around have it that gas prices now will seem like a garage sale compared to this fall. Will be interesting to see what effect this has to sales in total and segmented in trucks.

Our gas prices here have jumped around twenty cents per liter in the past couple weeks. Blaming it on the current Iraq situation of course.

Diesel round these parts is right at the same cost as gasoline go figure.
