According to a recent report from GM Authority, the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are on track to get an aggressive off-road variant akin to the Ford Raptor. The new line of mid-size pickups would serve better fighting the Raptor than the Silverado or Sierra thanks to their lightweight platform, as fewer pounds are better for any off-road vehicle.
The American automaker has offered little in regards to developing a formidable off-road truck, but did show off the Colorado Rally Concept in 2011. In the past, GM has had all-terrain variants for its Chevy S-10 and GMC Sonoma pickup trucks that featured higher ground clearance, stronger shocks, bigger axles and other upgrades meant for leaving the pavement.
