There were details about the next-generation pickup truck Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon

The official presentation of the updated American pickup trucks unlikely to happen until 2023. Both cars will get a new platform 31xx-2.

The current generation of the midsize Chevrolet Colorado was introduced back in November 2013, but nevertheless, the model remains a very popular car brand – according to the results of last year sold 134 842 copies. It is essentially a twin brother GMC Canyon in turn, was presented a few months later at the motor show in Detroit 2014 and in 2018 were sold 33 492 units of the car.

Although these sales figures is relatively good, the American concern General Motors, which owns both companies, decided that it is time to think about new generations of these pickups, but they are unlikely to be shown until 2023.

According to a new report of foreign publications, Colorado will be developed on a new platform with the name 31xx-2. Given the fact that the current Colorado and Canyon are based on the architecture 31xx, their new generations apparently are strong steps forward.

From the report we understand that the new Colorado will be almost identical for all markets where it is sold, including Thailand and Australia. The model that is sold today uses the same platform for all regions, but the version for the United States and Canada differs significantly from the trucks to the rest of the world. This may change for a new generation.
