Excluding buses and military trucks, GMC mainly offers rebadged Chevrolet vehicles which are positioned as premium and fetch a few extra dollars. It’s been like that for a very long time, with an extremely short exceptions list.
Recently, GM decided to return to the American mid-size pickup truck market with a redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Naturally, the Bowtie-badged truck got a new face and a GMC logo to become the upscale Canyon, also to be offered for the 2015 model year.
