The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have been on the market in their current forms for four model years now, which puts them about due for a refresh. On Monday, a new report claimed the Canyon is in for a refresh this year, and we can only suspect the Colorado will follow.
Both trucks are near carbon copies save for exterior and interior design; the oily bits and structure are identical. It will mark the first substantial change in the pickups since their introduction. Since then, the Colorado and Canyon gained a 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine. The Canyon introduced a Denali trim and the Colorado earned an off-road focused ZR2 variant.
It’s unclear what the refreshes will bring, but updated designs seem quite likely. The refreshes will come as Ford prepares to launch its Ranger mid-size pickup in the United States after years of absence. Ford will likely introduce the Ranger this year as a 2019 model.
