^^^ That's a Ford F-150.

Re: 2015 Colorado/Canyon on the streets of Detroit

I agree with the last two shots being a F 150..... Looks like they're using a lot of cues from the Atlas concept

Assuming I get more photos I'll post them in this thread.
rFross,
I know what you mean about the mules, I see them too. They are all over MPG.
Heck GM even paraded the new full size trucks prior to release, driving all over the place in Sterling Heights. I hope they do the same with the Coly/Can.
Ever drive down George Merrelli street? On the west side there seems to be a dumping ground for new GM vehicles. Its gated but anytime I drive down there I look to see any new vehicles.

The tail lights are totally different than the new Colorado, even the HMSL is different. On the Colorado, the tail lights have squarish reflectors, and the reverse light is rectangular in shape, and doesn't have the bulge on the side for the marker light. The HMSL on the Colorado is also a rectangular design with the bed lights to either side, while in the above photos the HMSL appears to be a LED strip above the bed lights.
No, that's a Colorado. Look at the wheel opening flares.
The lights are not production units; just ones they use for mules/engineering.

Re: 2015 Colorado/Canyon on the streets of Detroit

We'll see, but I think I'm right on this.

As a matter of fact, when they were doing testing for the Camaro before it's release, all the Camaro boards were up in arms when they saw pics of the car with Pep-Boy looking lights. It got so bad that Scott Settlemire had to clear up what was happening.
CamaroZ28.com even created a new smiley that said "these are not the real lights".

Manufacturers fit cheapo lights to the cars for earlier testing. The final versions come much later, almost to the point where the pilots start getting churned out.

I'm convinced it's a Colorado.

Same can be said about your truck. You know what they say, opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. The new truck has generated a ton of positive feedback, much more than the old 355.

To answer your question about the chassis, no, they aren't anywhere close to being the same. Nothing will fit. The new truck is abour 6 inches wider on a chassis more closely shared with the new silverado than the current global colly (which is much different than the 355).

You could probably get the duramax to fit, but the tranny tunnel might not hold the 6spd behind it since the 355 uses a 4 spd auto. Could be the first one though and make some new motor mounts...

Re: 2015 Colorado/Canyon on the streets of Detroit

I actually like the new ones coming out. I'm going to work towards paying off my 06 so when then duramax option become available I can buy one.

I haven't been down that street in a very long time - I'll try to run over there this week and see what I can see. Detroit Testing Labs is off that road and they do component and even full size vehicle environmental testing. Things like heat and freeze chambers to test vehicles in temperature extremes. Could be the GM vehicles are in that lot because they are going through testing in the lab.
