General Motors has priced the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-size pickups, with the former starting at $20,995 and the latter at $21,880. The Chevy base price is for a rear-drive 2015 Colorado extended cab in WT (Work Truck) trim, about $9,700 less than a comparably appointed full-size Chevrolet Silverado extended cab. On the GMC side of the family, a base Canyon is roughly $9,300 below a similar Sierra pickup.
As previously announced the Colorado and Canyon will be available in rear-drive/4-wheel drive and offer Extended Cab/Crew Cab configurations, the latter with a 5-foot 2-inch short bed as well as a 6-foot 2-inch regular bed. Base engine for both trucks is a direct-injected 200-horsepower/2.5-liter 4-cylinder while a 305-horse/3.6-liter direct-injected V6 is standard-issue on 4WD Crew Cab models and a $935 option on other versions. For 2016, the pair will be available with a new 2.8-liter turbodiesel.
Although final EPA stats and complete pricing for both the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon won't be released until closer to their arrival in showrooms this fall, each division did provide some additional sticker-related insight. A mid-level Chevrolet Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and the 5-foot box will start at $27,985 while a top-line Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with the short box is set to open at $34,990. The mid-line, rear-drive GMC Canyon SLE extended cab with the 5-foot box will command $27,520, with the range-topping Canyon SLT 4x4 short-bed crew cab slated to begin at $37,875.
