Chevrolet has confirmed that it will offer a manual transmission in its upcoming Colorado midsize truck, though it will be limited to specific models.
A stick shift can be had solely on two-wheel drive extended cab WT-trimmed trucks, and will only be linked up to the four-cylinder engine. A GM spokesman says that the truck will be targeted towards fleet sales, an obvious decision considering that the manual Colorado will likely be the cheapest, most efficient version of the truck available.
All other models will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. A 3.6-liter gas engine or a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel are also offered in the Colorado, though the diesel won’t arrive until one year after the truck launches in fall of 2014.
