Chevrolet confirms return to pick-up market

Date: 26 August 2011

Chevrolet Colorado concept

GM-owned Chevrolet will launch a new pick-up in the second half of next year, based on the Colorado show truck.

Given Chevrolet's recent pedigree for putting its concept cars into production, the vehicle is unlikely to change greatly before launch, thought he predictable tweaks from concept to production such as the big wheels, winch and lighting will be changed in the transition to a more standard real-world vehicle.

Power is likely to come from either or both of 2.2- and 3.0-litre diesels, and the fact that it's coming only as a double-cab implies that the firm isn't targeting the workhorse end of the sector.

The new addition will take the number of manufacturers in the pick-up segment to seven, following Volkswagen's recent return with the Amarok, joining Mitsubishi, Ford, Nissan, Toyota and Isuzu, with Mazda yet to confirm whether its BT50 version of the new Ford Ranger will be sold here.
