We've had relatively few leaks in the days and weeks leading up to the LA Auto Show, but some where bound to happen. Earlier today, Edmunds.com posted an LA Auto Show Preview to their YouTube channel that featured a picture of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Woopsie!

Update: Edmunds has since removed the video from Youtube.

Update 2: More pictures have leaked out, check out the gallery below for an interior and rear view.

It may just be me, but I'm seeing a lot of the '98-'03 S-series (S10/Sonoma) pickup styling in this new Colorado. Now that's not a bad thing, as I dearly miss my 2001 GMC Sonoma SLS Highrider. I can't wait to see the GMC Canyon; hoping the rumors I've heard of a January debut (North American International Auto Show) are just that - rumors. I hope GMC doesn't make us ruby red fans wait too much longer.

Very nice so far. I have reason to be disappointed in reported bodystyle availability and engine choices, but as far as looks go, this is hot.

I feel your pain with regards to the [rumored] no regular cab, but your last Colorado was an extended cab remember! Of course the lack of a manual transmission is upsetting to many too (on other forums I visit). Are you disappointed that the diesel is [rumored] to be a 2015/2016 item? I'm disappointed that the new EcoTec3 4.3L V6 is not the truck-tuned engine in the new mid-size pickups - it seems more truck-oriented for the small pickups than the 3.6L V6 used in the sedans & crossovers.

Another forum has an interior shot (dash), additional frontal shot and a rear shot posted of the 2015 Colorado.

Personally, I like the way the red extended cab Thailand-version Colorado looks, all off-road based (sort of like the old S-series ZR2/Highrider pickups):

Though there are several differences in the styling of the Thailand Colorado and the N/A Colorado, I like the stance of the Thailand off-road version. Here's hoping that's what a production Z71 looks like.

Thanks for the extra pictures, Drew. I'm liking the backend design too now that I can see more of it clearly.

I see something in the bed (bed divider?), rear camera in the tailgate handle, and different rims from the other pictures posted all over the Internet. In the interior shot, I see that the full-size model's toggle switches have been shared with the Colorado. Many are saying that the steering wheel and gauge pod look very similar to the 2014 Impala's style/design.

I will say that the 2015 Colorado has been receiving a lot of attention the past several hours since these leaks went out! I want to see the non-monochromatic versions; the all-painted models are nice, but I like my trucks with some tasteful chrome.

I kinda see it, but I'm not as sure with the angles here. Not a fan of the 4 door, rather have an extended cab, as long as my son can fit in back there! Really need to get a closer look at this truck......

      The COVID-19 pandemic has possibly caused another auto show to rethink their plans. According to Automotive News, organizers of the show are planning to delay the show from November to next May. Three sources tell the outlet the new dates are May 21st to 31st. Two of sources go on to say that an announcement could come this week.
      Automotive News tried to get comment from Terri Toennies, president of the show, but did not reply.
      By possibly moving the LA Auto Show to May, automakers and organizers of the New York and Detroit shows find themselves in a difficult spot. The LA show sandwiches between New York (April) and the revised Detroit show (June), which may cause automakers to make difficult decisions as to which shows get the most significant unveilings or whether to attend at all.
      Auto shows in general have been struggling before the onset of the pandemic. With automakers deciding to hold their own events to have more time in the spotlight and save cash, the spectacle of the show has gone down.
      We'll keep you posted.

      Lots of interesting stuff happening as GM by divisions starts to release more info on their EV programs.
      First is a interesting video on their Ultium batteries. This clearly shows how versatile they can build the battery packs.

      They have released a video of a side profile of the new Chevrolet Bolt morphing into the Bolt EUV. I was able to download the video and as such, way more visual detail than on the posted web sites below are showing.

      Have to say the upcoming update to the Chevrolet Bolt and the EUV is nice looking and should sell even better than the old Bolt. Truly a much more CUV look.

      This week, Hagerty obtained a document from General Motors' executive director in charge of program management, Michelle Braun that says development on future car and truck programs has been paused due to the COVID-19 outbreak. But the document also mentions some intriguing information on upcoming powertrains for the C8 Corvette. Here are the details,
      Corvette Z06: 5.5L DOHC V8 known as the LT6 that will produce 650 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. No mention of any type of forced-induction. Corvette Gran Sport: 6.2L OHC V8 with a hybrid system that's expected to produce 600 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. Corvette ZR1: Twin-Turbo 5.5L DOHC V8, dubbed LT7. Output is expected to be 850 horsepower and 800 pound-feet. Corvette Zora: The powerhouse of the C8, it will take the Twin-Turbo LT7 and augment with a hybrid system. This is expected to produce 1,000 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque. Hagerty's report says the rollout of the new engines will begin in 2022 with the LT6, but the COVID-19 outbreak may push the plans back.
