2015 COLORADO AND CANYON OFFER SEGMENT-LEADING FUEL ECONOMYCompany press release.
• EPA estimated 26 mpg highway for V-6 2wd models
– The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will offer segment-leading fuel economy for V-6 midsize pickups, based on EPA fuel economy estimates released today.
For V-6 pickups with automatic transmissions, which make up the majority of midsize truck sales, Colorado and Canyon offer highway fuel economy 3 to 5 mpg better than competitors.
'Colorado offers some of the best EPA fuel economy estimates of any pickup in a fun-to-drive, easy-to-own package,' said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. 'Colorado proves you don't have to buy a lot of expensive technology to save money at the pump.'
'The all-new 2015 GMC Canyon adds segment-leading fuel economy to its winning resume,' said Kenn Bakowski, Canyon marketing manager. 'Innovations such as available active grille shutters combine with an aerodynamic design in a smaller, more maneuverable package to set a new standard for fuel economy in midsize trucks.'
For the 2016 model year, Colorado and Canyon will add a 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel to the engine lineup. Technical details and EPA fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.
Colorado and Canyon will be available in dealerships nationwide in the fall of 2014. EPA fuel economy estimates for four-cylinder Colorado and Canyon will be finalized in the near future.
With the introduction of Colorado and Canyon, Chevrolet and GMC will offer customers more pickup choices than any other brand, including midsize, full-size light duty and heavy-duty pickups.
