At one time, the midsize truck marketplace was the place to be. Manufacturers from Ford, GM, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan, and others had models available for those who needed the capability of a truck, but didn't want the size or fuel bills of a full size. But within the past few years, the midsize truck offerings began to wither thanks to higher price tags.
That is changing as General Motors surprised everyone by announcing the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado at the LA Auto Show. This new truck gives the midsize truck segment a much needed kick in the pants with a new design, loads of tech, and the availability of a diesel engine. Chevrolet's Tom Wilkinson gives a walkaround of GM's entrant into the midsize truck class.
