General Motors has released a teaser photo of their upcoming mid-size pickup twins.

With Ford and Chrysler abandoning the 1/4 ton pickup market, General Motors is the last domestic manufacturer still left playing in the segment.

Ahead of the release of the all-new trucklets, GM has released a teaser photo of the new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.

Using the photo as a reference, the new Colorado will get a distinctive look versus the global Chevrolet Colorado available in other markets, and even unique compared to the 2014 Silverado. However, the new Canyon looks to grab its DNA directly from the Sierra, which could make for a very aggressive looking 1/4 ton pickup.

Production of the new trucks will start in 2014 for the 2015 model year. There’s no official word yet on when they will be revealed, but Los Angeles in December or Detroit in January would be the logical possibilities.

ACME, Mich. – At the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars today, General Motors Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Dan Ammann provided the first look at the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, designed to be capable, versatile and fuel-efficient alternatives to full-size pickups.

Colorado and Canyon will join the all-new 2014 Silverado and Sierra 1500s, and the upcoming Silverado and Sierra HDs, to give Chevrolet and GMC the industry’s most comprehensive lineups of pickups, helping customers choose the right truck for their needs.

Production is scheduled to start in 2014 at GM’s Wentzville, Mo., assembly center.
