For the last few years truck lovers have leaned towards bigger and better trucks. As General Motors develops more fuel-efficient engines for these full-size trucks, smaller trucks are seemingly falling through the cracks. However, with an upcoming redesign, the previously-named Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are ready to take back the spotlight.
GM’s new line of midsize pickups will be revealed later this year and plan to challenge the Toyota Tacoma in both fuel efficiency and custom features. In addition, President of GM North America Mark Reuss said these new trucks can do 95% of the work a big truck can do.
GM will be revamping their mid-size lineup from the inside-out. The Chevrolet and GMC mid-sizes are likely to take on a new name to start a new legacy in the small pickup market. GM’s likely target for the new trucks is younger drivers that crave adventure, love the feel of a truck, and often haul outdoorsy equipment.
Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC will carry both new mid-size trucks when they come up in early 2014. For more information on these trucks or to set up a future test drive, visit Hutch online at http://hutchchevrolet.com or in-person at their Paintsville, KY dealership.
