Colorado and Canyon to get V8 – in 2009

Remember how we reported that the 2008 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon would have the 5.3 liter V8 available? Looks like GM disappoints again. The original plan was to offer the V8 as an option about mid-year in 2008, in both of GM’s midsize trucks, as well as the Hummer H3. This has officially been pushed back to the launch of the 2009 model year. Lots of folks were waiting for this option, so that they could get the V8 without going all the way to the full-size Silverado or Sierra, or jumping ship to the Dodge Dakota.

Time to wait just a little bit longer, guys.
