GM has announced pricing for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, and it's safe to say that direct-competitor the Toyota Tacoma can expect to face some challenging terrain in the midsize pickup landscape. The 4x2 extended-cab Colorado starts at $20,995, including destination charge, and comes equipped with a 200-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Meanwhile, the nearly identically equipped Canyon starts at about $1,000 more.

Pickup truck buyers who aren't interested in full-size trucks need more choices and Chevrolet's new Colorado should prove to be a compelling option, says PickupTrucks.com editor Mark Williams. The new-for-2015 truck is a combination of GM's best designs and solutions from the 2014 Silverado 1500 and the heavier-duty new global Holden Colorado, Williams says.
GM will unveil the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado this week at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. For the rest of Williams' in-depth report on the new Colorado, go to PickupTrucks.com.

GM is recalling 118,800 model-year 2010-12 versions of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to problems with the trucks' hood latch system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from Nov. 9, 2009, through Aug. 28, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and could be missing a secondary hood latch. If the main hood latch is not engaged, the hood could open unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.
GM will notify owners starting Jan. 17, 2013, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace any affected hoods for free. Owners can call Chevrolet 800-630-2438, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
While Ford and Dodge have confirmed that they’re scuttling their smaller pickups for America — the Ranger and Dakota, respectively — Chevy announced today that it will hold steadfast with its Colorado midsize pickup for the U.S. (The vehicle made its global debut last week in Thailand.) Production details, timing and pricing will be announced at a later date, but you can expect the Colorado to be more fuel efficient and affordable compared with the full-size Chevy Silverado. No word if the GMC Canyon — a virtual twin to the existing Colorado — will also survive the redesign process. For more info, continue reading at PickupTrucks.com.
It's Official! The New Colorado Is Coming to the U.S. (PickupTrucks.com)
The 2012 Chevrolet Colorado made its global debut today in Thailand, which will be the first market to get the new global midsize pickup truck. There was no official announcement about a U.S. launch, though our friends at PickupTrucks.com say GM will invest $380 million plant to build a new pickup truck platform. (GM's Shreveport, La., plant where current-gen Colorados and GMC Canyons are built is scheduled to close next year.)
Chevrolet will offer Thai customers 26 combinations of Colorado models, powertrains, cabins, and ride heights and a choice of two all-new Duramax turbo-diesel engines. Read all the details and check out more photos at at PickupTrucks.com.

General Motors is recalling 6,768 2011 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon compact pickup trucks over issues involving the automatic transmission on select trims, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Some models equipped with either a 2.9-liter four-cylinder or 3.7-liter five-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission may have problems with the transmission selector. The PRNDL shift lever icons might not accurately reflect the true gear. Depending on the situation, drivers won’t be able to restart their vehicles or the vehicle could roll away when parked.
GM dealers will install a new automatic transmission adjustment clip free of charge. The recall will begin on July 19. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
GM is recalling 4,674 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon compact pickup trucks from the 2011 model year because the windshield wipers may become inoperative, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, the wipers’ motor crank arm nut may loosen if the wipers are operated with a build-up of snow or ice or if the wipers are turned on with a dry windshield. If the nut is loosened enough, the wipers could stop working. This could reduce driver visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealerships will secure the nut free of charge. For more info, owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
Chevy’s slow sellers, such as the Avalanche and HHR, continue to offer 0% financing throughout April. The Tahoe and Suburban switch from 0% financing to a still-attractive 2.9% for 60 months, though both models maintain a $2,000 cash-back deal from last month. No Chevy models increase their cash-back offerings.
Chevy’s popular sellers, like the Cruze and Equinox, don’t offer much in terms of incentives, but both models have somewhat attractive lease deals.
Most incentives expire May 2. Continue reading below for more detailed offerings:
