POLL: Have the new GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado made you think differently about midsize pickups?
| January 16, 2014 |
It’s safe to say that the unveiling of both the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in the last couple of months have breathed new life—or at least attention—to the midsize truck segment. That’s partly due to the great-looking redesigns General Motors pulled off with both trucks, especially the Canyon, but also because the automaker is saying that despite their smaller size these trucks are designed to do 95 percent of the work of their full-size counterparts. Especially the Canyon which GM says will boast the best horsepower, payload and maximum trailer specs in its class.
Given all of that, and the fact that both the Colorado and Canyon will also get the 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine for the 2016 model year, we wanted to know if these new pickups are making full-size truck owners start to consider a small truck. So what do you think? Answer our poll below.
