Not that we believe it, but Rick Kranz from Automotive News seems to suggest it.
When the next generation Chevrolet Colorado made its debut at the Bangkok International Motor Show earlier this week, the display model featured all-wheel-drive. That being the case, it has raised suspicions as to whether or not the setup was to mask the FWD configuration. Reference pointed to Jamie Hresko, the former global Powertrain chief who recently left General Motors who spoke with AN at the Detroit Auto Show (before his resignation) about what to expect from GM’s next generation mid-sized trucks, saying that leaner, lighter and small pickups need to be available to the consumer. Reasons being for fuel economy and frugal things of that nature.
But could a FWD truck really get the demanding jobs done that are demanded from consumers all over the world? Let’s not forget why people buy pickups in the first place.
