2015 Chevrolet Colorado

General Motors confirmed that a six-speed manual transmission will be on the order sheet when the new mid-size truck enters production early next year. “I’m making a bet on this,” GM North America president Mark Reuss told Automotive News. “If you look at the past data, it’s probably not a financially sound decision. But we’re creating something here that hasn’t been created before.

So we’re going to take some risks.” Interestingly, GM already has a stick-shift tranny in the global version of the Colorado it sells in Brazil, Thailand, and elsewhere around the mid-size-truck-loving world, so tooling costs are zero. The “risks” are really taking on the extra financial burden of certifying another powertrain combination, increasing build complexity at the assembly plant, and stocking the replacement parts for another gearbox.
