Just a couple of months away from their fall release date, General Motors has revealed pricing for its redesigned midsize pickups, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon.

The 2015 Colorado will start at $20,995, including an $875 delivery fee, GM announced. That base model will come with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 200 horsepower paired with a six-speed manual transmission. A five-foot bed, power windows and a rearview camera come standard as well.

The 2015 Canyon will start at $21,880, including a $925 delivery fee. A 2.5-liter I-4 making 200 hp is standard on the Canyon, along with LED lighting, a four-way power driver’s seat, the CornerStep rear bumper and 16-inch aluminum wheels.

Crew-cab and extended-cab configurations will be available on both the Colorado and Canyon with crew-cab offering the five-foot bed and extended-cab offering a five- or six-foot bed.

Other options for the pickups include a 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6; a six-speed automatic transmission; 4G LTE connectivity with a built-in WiFi hotspot; collision alert and lane departure warnings and GM’s GearOn system for organizing cargo in the bed. A Bose sound system will also be offered on the Canyon.

As Automotive News first noted, these prices mean a pretty comfortable distance in pricing between the base models of the new midsize pickups and the base models of their full-sized brethren the Silverado and Sierra. The base Colorado is $5,575 cheaper than the base Silverado while the base Canyon is $5,200 cheaper than the base Sierra.

And when you start speccing these new midsize trucks out comparably to the full-sized models, the price difference widens even more. Automotive News has helpfully outlined price differences between comparably specced Colorados and Silverados and Canyons and Sierras that all fall between $8,000 and $10,000.

Below are the rest of the configuration prices GM announced for each model. GM has not yet announced the price of these trucks when equipped with the four-cylinder Duramax diesel engine coming for the 2016 model year.
