General Motors has just announced pricing for its new midsize pickup trucks the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon and we couldn't be more excited for these bad boys to hit the lots at 20k and 21k respectively with extended cabs and base 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engines.

Both trucks have the optional upgrade from 200-hp to 305, with a 3.6-liter V6.  Coming soon is  an additional diesel model, but not expected until later next year.  Extended cabs and crew cabs will add anywhere form an additonal $6,000 to $13,000 to the price of the truck, depending on the additional features and how many friends you want to haul aound town.

New options are available to keep you safe and connected such as GM's new 4G LTE connectivity with built-in wi-fi hotspot, collision alert, and lane departure warning.

Colorado customers can chose from two cab configurations, extended-cab and crew-cab. Crew-cab Colorados will offer a choice of 5- or 6-foot boxes; extended-cab models come with the 6-foot box.

The Canyon is not deep in the trenches with its standard 2.5L I-4 Direct Injected engine, rated at 200 horsepower, signature light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting, four-way power driver's seat, CornerStep rear bumper, and 16-inch aluminum wheels.

Upgrade your truck to the SLE trim and enjoy an aluminum interior trim, soft-touch instrument panel and door pads, EZ-lift and lower tailgate, eight-inch diagonal color-touch radio with Intellilink, and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with a three-month or three-GB trial.  Take it one step farther to the SLT crew cab with a 3.6L V-6 engine with 305 horsepower, leather-appointed seating, automatic climate control, 18-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels, remote start and an automatic locking rear differential.

 

Both contain sleek styling, and the luxury of a high end pickup... there's one thing America does well, and that's pickups.  You can't go wrong with either truck... and we are definitely looking forward to test driving them shortly!

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
