GM will offer the Colorado LT crew cab with rear-wheel drive and a five-foot bed for a starting price of $27,985. The Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with the five-foot bed starts at $34,990. Extended cab models will offer a six-foot bed. Prices include a dealer freight charge.

The GMC Canyon will be available as the SLE extended cab with rear-wheel drive starting at $27,520 or the SLT crew cab with four-wheel drive starting at $37,875.
