Taking the performance off-road truck down to a more manageable size.
Ford'sF-150 SVT Raptor, based on the outgoing generation of Ford's successful truck, has proven to be a success story all of its own, creating a fierce categoryof go-anywhere, almighty trucks. Now, according to a report on GM Authority,General Motors is planning on infiltrating this battle from a lowercategory, creating a go-anywhere truck based on the smaller 2015Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Lighter and more agile than the F-150, they may prove to be more capable than the competition.
As these trucks will be based on the upcoming 2015 models of GM'ssmaller trucks, the performance offshoots should not be expected before 2016 or2017. However, this could mean that the Canyon and Colorado's upgrade dieselengine could be ready for use by this time. With details still vague, staytuned for more updates as they come in.
