As we still adjust from the California-Michigan time zone difference after driving the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 GMC Canyon, General Motors has signed a new agreement with long-time partner Isuzu. This formal agreement will see both makers jointly develop a next-generation midsize pickup.
For decades, GM and Isuzu have worked together in more than 100 different countries to build two generations of pickups. The plan is to develop another pickup for several worldwide markets, but not in the U.S. or Canada. These agreements are about saving money by sharing parts and buying in large bulk for bigger discounts.
In the past, the two companies have developed many products including i-Series and the Isuzu D-Max. The i-Series was basically the late-model Chevrolet Colorado. Further details on the collaboration like power train, timing and manufacturing locations was not disclosed at this time, nor do we quite know how this truck will affect the fairly new, Thai-built global Chevrolet Colorado pickup.
