2013 Chevrolet Colorado coming to the U.S. for sure

2012 all-new Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab

Finally the General has decided to bring the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado to the U.S. market. And just as we griped of not having the Colorado here in the U.S., General Motors today has announced that its all-new Colorado midsize pickup truck will be built and sold in the United States.

“The new Chevrolet Colorado is generating a lot of excitement as we begin its launch in Thailand,” said Chris Perry, vice president, global marketing and strategy for Chevrolet. “We think the design, capability and fuel efficiency of the new Colorado will make it attractive to U.S. customers.”

The all-new 2013 Chevrolet Colorado is designed to be a global pickup truck, which will be more fuel efficiency and versatile. The 2013 Chevrolet Colorado was debuted in Thailand last week, and it comes in 2WD and 4WD regular, extended-cab and crew cab with gasoline and diesel engines. GM hasn’t released powertrain information on the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado for the U.S. market yet, but we are hoping that the company will offer the 2.8-liter turbo diesel Duramax four-cylinder engine with 356 pound-feet of torque as well.

We like the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado concept model with its bold characteristic and aggressive look, but the production model seems lack of those traits. It looks too tame, with the front fascia similar to the Chevrolet Cruze. Anyways, the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado production model is rather disappointing in the appearance department, but hopefully it will make up in the powertrain department.

GM plans to announce engine options for the 2013 Chevrolet Colorado in the U.S. at a future date.

    If it is brought in with a diesel engine as they did in Australia it could be really great.
