The Chevrolet Colorado pickup, which is produced at the General Motors plant in Wentzville, is Motor Trend magazine’s truck of the year. The redesigned Colorado, which debuted a few months ago, won Motor Trend’s award in a unanimous vote, a rarity for the competition.
The midsize pickup beat out several larger trucks, including Ford’s redesigned F-150, which is produced at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo.
Motor Trend cited the Colorado’s “handsome” design, handling and overall capability as reasons for the award. The manager of GM’s Wentzville facility said the recognition shows the importance of the midsize pickup in the U.S. market.
