CR Model Summary
Developed by GM's Brazilian arm, the new Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado arrive with a choice of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder or GM's excellent 3.6-liter V6. Both are mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission and offer rear- or four-wheel drive. V6 versions offer a tow-haul mode. The truck comes with features from the full-sized Sierra, such as a spring-loaded tailgate. Inside are the latest connectivity systems including IntelliLink. They are also the first small trucks to offer collision mitigation, systems including forward collision and lane departure warnings. A backup camera is standard. A 2.8-liter, four-cylinder diesel will be offered in 2015.
