Shocking to Nobody: Just-Introduced Chevrolet Colorado Coming to U.S.

By Joel Arellano | October 10, 2011
General Motors announced today that it will be bringing the next generation midsized Chevrolet Colorado here to the states, surprising absolutely no one except a few die-hard Ford truck fanatics still in denial. GM says it will release relevant information like models, engines, etc., of the U.S. model in the future. Since the current Chevy Colorado is currently scheduled to run through 2012, don't expect this newest model to debut until 2013 at the earliest. The new Chevrolet Colorado is already on sale internationally, however. Debuting in Thailand, the Chevy Colorado is offered in regular, crew cab, and extended cab configurations, with gasoline or diesel engines, and in two-wheel or four-wheel drive models. The foreign-market Chevrolet Colorado was developed in General Motors do Brasil offices. Automotive.com take: Don't expect the diesel engine to make it across the seas for the U.S.-spec Chevrolet Colorado, unfortunately. Source: General Motors/Chevrolet

You ask, "WHY NO DIESEL"!!!! auto industry, oil, government, are all married. The answer is that the DIESEL last 4 to 5 times longer than the gas engines. Today they dont build to last. no money in diesels.

They say if you built it they will come. GM needs the 4 cylinder diesel to corner the market . With out it the consumers will be buying TOYOTA AND NISSANS

Wonder if GM finally realized that the midsegment truck market was still viable and Toyota was gonna take it over if one of the Detroit Three didn't do anything.
