Sales of the full-size Chevrolet Silverado may be down, but the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado is still relatively hot. General Motors’ gamble to reintroduce mid-size truck to the market has certainly paid off.
A new report from Autoline states we still have some time before an all-new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon surface, though. Production of the next-generation mid-size truck is expected to begin in 2022, which means we may not see the pickups for at least another four years.
In the meantime, both the Colorado and Canyon will likely receive more extensive mid-cycle updates at some point to keep things fresh ahead of a potential 2022 introduction. It’s worth noting Ford will reintroduce the Ranger mid-size pickup in the United States in 2019. Ford may be able to steer current Colorado and Canyon owners with an all-new pickup should GM’s offerings begin to look stale in comparison.
Of course, we won’t know more about the next-generation of GM mid-size trucks until the automaker wants us to. In the meantime, Chevrolet and GMC will introduce the all-new, 2019 Silverado and 2019 Sierra possibly next year.
