All-new midsized pickups are entering the fray with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon fraternal twins, and it’s great to know that they will come well equipped with a diesel offering, GM Authority has learned.
While it’s unclear if the 2015 Colorado and Canyon will feature both the 2.5L and 2.8L diesel motors featured in the international-spec Colorado sold around the world currently, it will be one or both of these motors that the trucks will utilize. The smaller 2.5L Duramax mill produces 150 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the more powerful 2.8L turbodiesel that promises 180 hp and a stout 346 lb-ft of torque, in the international Colorado.
To note, it’s expected that the GMI700 trucks will not feature any of the same engines that the larger K2XX 2014 Silverado and Sierra 1500 trucks offer. But a more compact pickup with a diesel engine? Where do we sign?
