GM to Reveal 2015 Chevrolet Colorado November 20th at LA Auto Show

Chevrolet Colorado to Debut at Los Angeles Auto Show
General Motors

November 12, 2013


DETROIT – In less than a year, Chevrolet has reengineered its entire full-sized truck portfolio with an all-new Silverado 1500, 2500 and 3500. On November 20 during media days at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the final piece of Chevrolet’s pickup truck portfolio will be revealed.

The all-new Chevrolet Colorado will reinvent what a midsized pickup should be. The Colorado is engineered to be the most capable, most versatile and technologically advanced midsized truck in the market. Watch it revealed live from Los Angeles on November 20 here: http://youtu.be/-XkUGs-OEE4.

Very curious to see this. I expect to be in the market for a new vehicle next year or very early in 15 and a pick up is on my mind. I do not need a full size truck, so if the colorado offers up what I need GM may have a customer in me.

Just keep in mind that in order to claim the title of the most capable, most technologically advanced midsize truck in North America the Colorado has to beat out the decade old Tacoma, the 'technically its a compact' Frontier, and the 'is that even a truck' Ridgeline. It would kinda be an embarrassment to GM's engineering team if they couldn't outdo those three.

My thoughts exactly, this should be a cakewalk.

This or the Canyon is probably going to be my next vehicle.

If there's a diesel then it will definitely be my next vehicle.

They should be using the new 4.3L in this truck.

Many people hated the inline motors in the Colorado/Canyon line.

That would be a good fit for it, but I've heard that they only plan on using car engines in these trucks.

I thought they were gone for good. Depending on style and price may be my next vehicle, would like another truck but have no need for a full size.

These trucks should EASILY outdo the former generation, as well as Tacoma and Frontier in just about every possibly way...especially efficiency. I'm not saying that as some fan-boy....it just makes sense. Every truck in this segment is just wayyyy overdue for a big refresh or a new generation, and GM is first in line.

I believe these trucks need to do a few things first and foremost to be appealing and worthy as an option over the bigger brothers...and that's 1) Great efficiency in both the turbo 4 and 6 cylinder (and diesel if offered) 2) Priced to make sense 3) Look good and have a little sport in them not as much big truck look. After that then I believe comes work ability and interior/features.

If you need a truck to work...get a fullsize. These shouldn't be for you. But if your like me and use a truck bed fairly often, but you don't need to haul or tow big loads then this is your vehicle.

I drive a 2006 Colorado crew cab Z71 4x4 with the inline 3.5....basically the least fuel efficient version they made at the time and I manage to average 19mpg driving conservatively with my drive to work being around 60 - 70 % highway. I got that consistently over multiple fill ups. (Now that its cold out my mpg has dropped considerably to 17.5 - 18) but 19mpg average is damn good in my opinion on this truck.

Now there's no reason in my mind why I shouldn't be able to average at least 20 - 22 mpg or better in a similarly equipped new generation Colorado with a V6 engine. If you don't need or want the 4x4, then the 2wd will see even better mpg easily on a commute like mine. Maybe mid 20s. No fullsize with a V8 will come close to touching that. Of course the turbo 4 version should be slightly better.

Hoping for the best, b/c in a few years I can see myself in a newer more modern Colorado or Canyon.

Calling the 2500 all new is a stretch. Looking forward to the reveal.

Why? Pretty sure the only carryover items of any significance are the powertrains. And nobody expects an automaker to create a brand new set of engines & transmissions every single time they introduce a new vehicle.

To me powertrain is the most important part of a truck. They don't need to redesign engines every few years but they shouldn't say its all new with the same engine and tranny either.
