  • 2015 GMC Canyon will be revealed in Detroit
  • Pickup to offer similar styling and equipment as Chevrolet Colorado
  • May boast more upscale touches, in keeping with GMC brand

GMC will officially unveil its all-new 2015 Canyon midsize pickup at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. The new truck will be similar to the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado, which debuted only two months ago at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

On the outside, the truck will likely be a more muscular, grown-up version of the original GMC Canyon, which was sold from 2004 to 2012. While GMC hasn't released any official pictures, we expect that the pickup's styling will be similar to the Colorado shown in Los Angeles. That means larger fenders and a sleeker grille than those of the outgoing Colorado and Canyon, as well as a more modern overall look.

That same modern look is expected to carry over to the Canyon's interior. The latest Colorado boasts a far more stylish cabin than the outgoing model, headlined by a large, center-mounted touchscreen -- a first for GM's midsize pickup trucks.

Under the hood, the Canyon will likely offer the same powerplants found in the Colorado. That means a standard 193-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, with a 302-hp 3.6-liter V6 on the options list. The Colorado will offer a 2.8-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder soon after it debuts, though GMC has not yet announced if that engine will be available in the Canyon.

If the Canyon sounds similar to the Colorado, that's because it is. After all, the trucks will be built in the same Louisiana factory, they'll share most mechanical components and they'll look largely the same. So what's the difference?

For one, the Canyon will probably boast a few specialized exterior touches such as unique wheels, a different grille and chrome accents. But most importantly, we think the Canyon will offer higher-end features and appointments; the GMC is often positioned as an upscale alternative to Chevrolet, thanks to models such as the GMC Sierra Denali pickup and the Yukon Denali SUV.

We'll know more about the Canyon when the pickup is unveiled in Detroit.

What it means to you: While it may be similar to the Chevrolet Colorado, the 2015 GMC Canyon will likely take on a persona of its own.
