The official presentation of the updated American pickups is unlikely to happen until 2023. Both cars will receive a new platform 31xx-2.

The current generation of the mid-size truck Chevrolet Colorado was presented in November 2013, but nevertheless the model remains a very popular car of the brand – according to the results of last year 134,842 copies were sold. Its essentially twin brother GMC Canyon, in turn, was presented a few months later at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, and in 2018 33,492 units of this car were sold.

Although these sales figures are relatively good, the American concern General Motors, which owns both of these companies, decided that it was time to think about new generations of these pickups, but they are unlikely to be shown until 2023.

According to the new report of foreign publications, Colorado will be developed on a new platform with the name 31xx-2. Given the fact that the current Colorado and Canyon are based on the 31xx architecture, their new generations will probably be strong “steps” forward.

From the report, we realized that the new Colorado will be almost identical for all the markets in which it is sold, including Thailand and Australia. The model that is being sold today uses the same platform for all regions, but the US and Canada version is significantly different from the trucks for the rest of the world. This may change for a new generation.
