Review Finds 2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon Very Good if a Bit Flawed

GM is trying to fill a sector of the pickup market that it hadn’t been active in since 2012 with its new 2015 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon models. Basically the same capable, modern and well-rounded vehicle, KBB says you should go for the GMC as it has a higher quality interior and the price difference is negligible.

Even if both look modern and like they’re from 2015, they still rely on a traditional ladder chassis. Engine choices consist of three options, one of which is a diesel that will be added to the range later – they tested both petrol engines offered (a 3.6-liter V6 and a 2.5-liter four-pot) and found that the latter was not the best at towing, so if that’s what you’re buying it for go for the V6.

KBB did note, though, that the V6 is beaten in terms of economy by the bigger and more powerful Ford F150 equipped with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. The conclusion? They’d better make the announced 2.8-liter diesel really-really good – it promises to deliver around 181 hp.
