GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz spoke to journalists this morning in Los Angeles, where he highlighted GM's strong product portfolio, skipping any mention of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. We asked him what the future held for these small pickups. It doesn't sound promising.

"It's uncertain at this point," Lutz said. "They may well [go away]."

GM hasn't officially announced whether the Colorado and Canyon will be refreshed, replaced or jettisoned. Last year, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said it was GM's plan to end production at the Shreveport plant where the twin trucks are produced by 2012.

Ford has said production of its Ranger compact pickup will end by 2011, and Chrysler has said the Dodge Dakota will end production next year, though the Dakota is likely to be replaced by a small unibody pickup.

yeah, I can't see them eliminating these lil trucks. There is so many environmental and energy conservation possibilities available to these lil trucks.
