General Motors president Mark Reuss dropped a few hints about the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon compact pickup trucks at the Texas State Fair.
Set to be unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show later this year and sold as 2015 model year vehicles, the new compact trucks will boast obvious brand differentiation. "We will see more differentiation. GMC will be more about conquest. The Chevy will be about value," Reuss revealed earlier this week.

As far as design is concerned, the US market trucks will look different than the global Colorado, which means they'll probably borrow several styling cues from the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Reuss declined to comment whether or not there will be any diesel engines, but the Colorado is likely to arrive with an 2.5 or 2.8-liter turbocharged oil burner.

The upcoming 2015 Colorado and Canyon will rival Toyota's Tacoma and Nissan's Frontier. Ford has yet to confirm that the Ranger will be resurrected for the US market.
