The new generation of the GMC Canyon / Chevy Colorado pickup will receive only one engine

According to the data, mid-size American pickups GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado of the new generation will be offered with only one engine.

We do not expect the next-generation mid-size Chevy Colorado truck, like its sister GMC Canyon, to appear before the 2023 model year. When these innovations are presented, the American concern GM, which includes both GMC and Chevy, will offer both pickups with only one power unit, which will be a 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which will be combined with 10 -staged automatic transmission.

 The 2.7-liter turbo engine is currently installed under the hoods of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, developing 310 horsepower (472 Nm).

This means that the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, 3.6-liter gasoline V6 and 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine that equip current-generation trucks will be phased out.

It is known that the new generation of medium-sized Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks will be built on a modernized version of the current 31XX platform – the new architecture will be designated 31XX-2. It is reported that both cars will be almost identical to each other, and absolutely in all automotive markets.

┬áSales of GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado fell in 2019 compared to 2018 – 32,825 sales versus 33,492. We cannot know whether the updated models will reverse the downward trend in sales, although car sales are now very uncertain as the world is facing an unprecedented coronavirus infection crisis. The debut of the all-new Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks is still a few years away, and much can change between today and 2023.
