Motor Trend has selected the Chevrolet Colorado as its 2015 Truck of the Year.

Motor Trend's Truck of the Year program is only open to all-new or significantly updated trucks and vans for the upcoming model year. For 2015, seven contenders were invited to compete; three competitors were asked to bring a powertrain and/or body style variant for a total of 10 vehicles overall:

  • Chevrolet Colorado WT and Colorado Z71
  • Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD
  • Ford F150 2.7L EcoBoost and 3.5L EcoBoost
  • Ford F-450
  • Ford Transit 350 HR and Transit 150 MR
  • GMC Canyon SLT
  • GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD.

The 2015 Colorado emerged as Motor Trend's 2015 Truck of the Year by a rare unanimous vote, according to the company. The editors were particularly impressed with Colorado’s handsome, clean-sheet design, “right-sized” package, excellent handling, and overall capability. Colorado’s potent yet efficient powertrains also returned best-in-class fuel economy according to Real MPG and EPA testing.
