2015 Colorado Named Motor Trend Truck of the Year

When the rush to proclaim the Blue Oval’s pickup truck began, we here at Bradshaw Chevrolet felt compelled to tell everyone to hold their horses. While game recognizes game, we felt that there was a particular truck that was being unfairly overlooked on the way to proclaiming a certain other truck the king of the heap.

Fortunately, the fine folks at Motor Trend backed us up, making it much easier for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado actually being the best of what’s around in the pickup segment today.

“The Colorado to me is the perfect-size truck again,” said MT editor Kim Reynolds. “Its simplicity and purity are what a truck ought to be about.”

Indeed, the 2015 Colorado does exactly what it sought to do when it first debuted a year ago: reinvent the pickup segment. In reviving the mid-size pickup and bringing a truck to the masses that isn’t too big and isn’t too small but is juuuuust right, Colorado is an offering with endless appeal to match its endless style and utility.

Lauded for having “the best steering [editor Jonny Lieberman] ever experienced on any truck,” a wealth of standard features even at a low starting MSRP, and a number of upgrades that wind up making the small truck feel like a thing of big luxury, the Colorado is unquestioned atop the throne as 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.

“The all-new 2015 GMC Canyon adds segment-leading fuel economy to its winning resume,” said Kenn Bakowski, Canyon marketing manager, in a statement. “Innovations such as available active grille shutters combine with an aerodynamic design in a smaller, more maneuverable package to set a new standard for fuel economy in midsize trucks.”

Both trucks will use the same engines and have the same fuel economy ratings. For the 3.6-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection and continuously variable valve timing, two-wheel drive models are rated at 18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined. 4×4 models get 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined.
