came true. Mike Levine at
noticed that at the website for the '08
V8 engine is listed as an option
coming in early 2008. Mike called up the General and got confirmation that yes, a V8 is indeed coming for both 2WD and 4WD versions of the midsize pickup. They wouldn't confirm
getting, but since that platform's already been modified to accommodate the 5.3L unit for the
H3 Alpha, it's likely to be the same one. Considering that the 5.3 does just fine in the much larger Sierra, it ought to be a hoot in the Canyon.
hasn't put up a web page for the '08
yet, but we have to believe that whatever Canyon gets, Colorado will, too.
