GM could kill Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon compact pickups

Speaking this morning to journalists in Los Angeles, General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz went over the new and strong product portfolio for the company. However, Lutz skipped mention of the Chevrolet Colorado or the GMC Canyon. When asked by what the future holds for the two small pickups Lutz said:

“It’s uncertain at this point. They may well go away.”

GM has said nothing about whether it will refresh or replace the Colorado or the Canyon. It was reported last year that GM plans to end production at the Shreveport plant where the two trucks are produced by 2012.

Ford will end production of its compact Ranger pickup by 2011.
