General Motors pulled the sheets off an all-new midsize truck in LA called the Colorado, a product that is sure to breathe new life into an otherwise stale market.
The biggest news for this small truck is the availability of a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel, though that engine won’t be available until one year after the truck goes on sale in the fall of 2014. From launch, two engines will be offered, either a 2.5-liter four cylinder that makes 193 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, or a larger 3.6-liter that makes 302 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
All three engines will be hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission, and when properly equipped, Chevrolet says that this truck will be rated to tow more than the industry’s current best for small trucks, 6,700 pounds.
On the inside, the new Colorado borrows much of its layout from its big brother the Silverado including an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
