As I said in my previous post of all of ten minutes ago, once I post something, especially stating that there has been no news, there is news.
I just saw a news article that Chevy just announced their new 2015 Colorado due in about 12 months time. There will be three different engines available all mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, including a 2.8 liter diesel option. Not impressed with the lack of a manual transmission, but what else should I expect from the Americans. I suspect more information will become available shortly, but the pictures in the news article show a four door crew cab with a short bed, hopefully they will have multiple cab and bed configurations available.
I’ve driven the VW Amarok and although I like the truck and the engineering that went into it, I am not set on buying an Amarok. When my current vehicle dies and it is time to buy a new vehicle this Colorado might fit the bill.
Edit: Here is a link to Chevrolet’s press release and apparently you will be able to get the crew cab with a six foot bed.
