2015 Chevrolet Colorado Spy Photos 04

The return of the compact pickup truck to the North American market is inching ever closer, and the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado caught testing on public roads can attest to that. This camouflaged truck is a sign that research and development of the next Colorado is in the final stages before we begin the tedious dance of leaked photos from the automaker and then, finally, the official unveil at an auto show sometime later this year or early in 2014.

Camo does its job well on this Colorado tester, but if you look closely at the front grille, you can see a shrunken down version of 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Spy Photos 07 300x187 imagethe Silverado’s new front-end. A horizontal bar splits the front-end evenly and you can see the Golden Bow Tie badge bulging out from beneath the cover up. This further solidifies that the next Colorado will probably look like a baby Silverado. Before we start calling the Colorado a chip off the ol’ Silverado block though, look at the Colorado’s headlights. They sit horizontally, while the Silverado’s are placed vertically, and represent a dramatic change from the model it’s replacing.

Under the hood, we’re hearing that a four- and six-cylinder engine will provide the Colorado with power. More specifically, the 2.4-liter four cylinder used in the Equinox and GMC Terrain, 2.5-liter four-cylinder from the Malibu, or even a turbo four-cylinder could be used. As for V-6 models, the 3.6-liter used in the Equinox and Terrain could be a suitable engine.

Rumors and speculation are expected to be put to bed soon as General Motors has already announced that its compact pickup is expected to begin production by the end of the year. Stay tuned.
