General Motors said that 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon will offer best-in-segment fuel economy for pickups powered by V-6 engines, with ratings three to five miles per gallon higher than competitors, reports The Detroit News.
According to automaker, 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 paired with a six-speed automatic transmission will get 18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and a combined 21 mpg in the two-wheel drive configuration. Four-wheel drive versions will get 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined.
These ratings were certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The company said fuel economy ratings for four-cylinder engines in the Colorado and Canyon aren’t yet final.
For the 2016 model year, the automaker said it will add a 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine option for the Colorado and Canyon.
