    Order Guides For Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon Reveal They Make More Power


    • Some Intriguing Info Comes Out In GM's Order Guides

    Order guides are an interesting guide as they give us information on what's coming down the pipeline for a certain models. Such is the case for the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon that will be going on sale later this year. Truck Trend got their hands on the order guides for both models and found out some intriguing information.

    Extended Cab models of both trucks will come standard with the 2.5L direct-injected four-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. That's up from the 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet GM said earlier this year. A six-speed manual is standard across the range, with a six-speed automatic being optional. Max towing is rated at 3,500 lbs.

    Crew-Cab models get the 3.6L V6 as standard. Much like the 2.5L, the 3.6L specs are a bit different than what GM reported. The guide says the 3.6 produces 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet, compared to the 302 horsepower and 270 pound-feet as reported earlier. A six-speed automatic is standard. Max towing is rated at 7,000 lbs.

    Other bits of information that can be gleamed from the order guides include all models getting a rearview camera, four-way power adjustable driver's seat, and 4.2-inch infotainment system as standard equipment.

    Always cool to get updated information. I am very excited for these trucks. Just wish it was a true mini and they would get a decent engine with more torque than the HP. Trucks are for work, they do not need a ricer type HP heavy engine with little torque. They need it the other way around with more Torque and equal or less torque.

    That comes from turning the engine 90 degrees.  The Cadillac ATS with the 2.5 liter makes 202 Horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque in longituinal configuration, so I guess this rating for the Colorado and Canyon isn't that much of a surprise.

    I miss the S-10's & their size. Never liked their replacements.

    I agree that as big as I am, I grew up driving a restored 1976 Chevy Luv Truck Series 5. Loved that little truck and wish we had mini trucks again. So I created what I would love GMC to do with the Terrain.

    A six-speed manual is not "standard across the range".  It is available only on base trim level, 2WD models.  Also, I am disappointed that the rear-seat delete configuration is only offered on the cheapest fleet models.  I mean I understand it is to maximize space inside the extended cab for delivery items, tools etc., it would be handy on uplevel trucks as well.
