The Chevy Colorado was not in the market for more than three years, but now the popular midsize pickup truck by GM returns to the market. The Chevrolet Colorado still has the best versatility in the class, but the pickup has undergone a redesign that results in a vehicle that has the refinement and the efficiency of a crossover.
The Chevy Colorado is still a small pickup truck that can maneuver through the traffic with ease. The turning radius of the Chevy Colorado is 43.3 feet, allowing the pickup to maneuver in both off-road areas and tight areas in the city. GM has also increased the safety features of the new Colorado pickup.
The pickup is available in 19 combinations and four trim levels. The trim levels include base, Z71 off-road pickup, work truck and LT. The prices range from $20,120 for the base trim, to $34,415 for the off-road Z71 trim that is considered the premium.
There are plenty of choices for the customers, such as between the gasoline and diesel engines, extended crew cab, short box, rear drive, four wheel drive and much more. The standard transmission is a six-speed automatic, but all models are also available with a manual transmission. The two most popular engine models are the 2.5 liter gasoline engine with four cylinders that produces up to 200hp and the 3.6 liter V6 engine that produces 305hp.
GM will also offer two packages for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, the Trail Boss and the Midnight edition. Both are designed to completely change the outlook and the performances of the pickup.
The exterior of the Colorado is available in 10 different colors including red hot, red rock metallic, silver ice metallic and other colors. The premium color is rainforest green metallic, which costs an additional $495. The inside is available in just two colors, which are the jet black and the jet black with silver trim.
The tech features of the new Chevy Colorado are also improved, highlighted by the new center stack that features a large open area with four USB ports. The ports are located on the dashboard, inside and on the rear of the center console. A tablet can also be fitted into the center console, allowing for even more technology features and controls. A 3.5 inch driver screen serves as the instrument cluster accompanied by an 8 inch audio touch screen. The audio touch screen is shared with the navigation system of the car.
GM offers the MyLink system package with the Chevy Colorado as optional, along with Bose speaker system, OnStar LTE system, built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and much more.
