The hiatus is over! The Chevy Colorado and the GMC Canyon are back.
The Colorado/Canyon is the perfect vehicle for those who want the power of a pickup and the maneuverability of a crossover. When equipped with the recommended trailering package, this truck is capable of towing up to 7,000 pounds. The base model pushes out 193 horsepower with its 2.5L four-cylinder engine. When upgraded to the 3.6L V6, it gets around 300 horsepower, the same as a base model Chevy Silverado 1500. That just goes to show that size isn’t everything. With all of the power that comes with this truck, it still gets 26 MPG highway.
With an updated model, comes an abundance of upgrades. This new version of well-known GM truck can now be your own personal Wi-Fi hotspot. Through OnStar, GM is now offering vehicles with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. So, whenever you’re going on a long road trip, you’re passengers can keep themselves busy by connecting their phones or tablets to your internet hotspot.
As part of the technology boost, GM also enhanced the safety features on the Colorado and the Canyon. They are now equipped with a rear vision camera which kicks on when you shift into reverse, as well as a forward collision alert. How the forward collision alert works is the front of the truck has built-in smart cameras that constantly scan traffic while you drive; watching for stopped or slowing vehicles. Once you start to get dangerously close to another vehicle, the truck lets you know. It is also equipped with a lane departure sensor that warns you if you begin to unknowingly drift out of your current lane through a camera located near the interior rearview mirror.
It’s obvious that GM wanted to up their game in the business. By unleashing an updated version of the Colorado/Canyon, they showed that they thought of everything. This is a truck that can pull a trailer, but doesn’t feel like driving a bus, with a quieter cabin, and enough technology to make it your new home.
The base model of the Colorado starts for around $20,000 and the base model Canyon for around $23,500.
