  • Chevrolet Colorado will get 26 mpg hwy with 3.6-liter V6
  • 4-cylinder and diesel models not yet rated for fuel economy
  • Colorado will reach dealers this fall, priced from $27,500 with shipping

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will reach up to 26 miles per gallon with its 3.6-liter V6 engine when it goes on sale this fall. That's the latest from Chevrolet, which recently announced fuel economy figures and other details about its eagerly anticipated pickup.

According to Chevrolet, the 26 mpg number is a highway fuel economy figure for the pickup's 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 mated to a 2-wheel-drive layout. That engine, expected to be the truck's most popular powerplant, also returns 18 mpg in the city with 2-wheel drive. Four-wheel-drive fuel economy numbers are 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Unfortunately, Chevrolet has not yet released gas mileage ratings for the truck's other engines: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 2.8-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder. While fuel economy numbers for the 2.5-liter engine are expected soon, the eagerly anticipated 2.8-liter -- the only diesel engine among midsize trucks -- won't be out until the 2016 model year. As a result, diesel lovers will have to wait to find out gas mileage numbers for that powerplant.

In addition to announcing gas mileage numbers, Chevrolet also released the Colorado's online configurator, which confirms pricing and trim-level details. According to the configurator, the truck will offer three trim levels -- a base-level Work Truck (or WT), a midlevel LT, and an off-road-oriented Z71 -- with prices starting from around $27,500 with shipping.

What it means to you: With fuel economy numbers now released, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is one step closer to going on sale.
