Keep on Truckin’. 2015 Chevy Colorado named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year.

Last week Motor Trend announced the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as the winner of their 2015 Truck of the Year Award.

I’m not totally immersed  in the pickup market, preferring to keep my area of concentration more in the car and SUV arenas. However, I do find GM’s two all-new entries in the midsize pickup (MSPU) market worthy of note.

GM, Ford, and Chrysler abandoned this segment a few years back and left it to the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Now GM has returned with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2015 GMC Canyon.

Many auto industry pundits thought the naming of the Chevy Colorado as MT’s Truck of the Year to be a big surprise considering all the hoopla over Ford’s new F-150 that has a body made of all aluminum riding on a frame of high strength steel.

Well, everyone can have an opinion.

I had a chance to drive the Colorado and the Canyon in early October at an invitation-event that GM held a Autobahn Country Club in Joliet.

You can read my take here on that drive experience.

For Chicagoans needing a pickup for whatever reason, if you don’t need an industrial-strength full size pick up any of the midsize models will certainly be easier to maneuver on our crowded streets.
