2015 Chevrolet Colorado is now made out of sand

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 1, 2014

Last month, GM announced the pricing of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado but if you want a cheaper version I think we have the solution. Last weekend at the 2015 U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships the artists created a version made of sand and honestly, it does look pretty good.

Of course, it can’t be driven which means you have to stick to the real version and prepare to pay $20,995 including the $895 destination charge.

The vehicle comes as standard with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection that delivers 200 hp and uses a 6-speed. Still, if you want a bigger engine, Chevrolet offers the 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 305 hp and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

If you want more, the 2015 Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and 5-foot box starts at $27,985 including destination charge. Furthermore, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with 5-foot box has a starting price of $34,990.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Redefines Playing in the Sand

That sand gets in everything, even the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado that takes the stage this weekend at the 2015 U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships. One of the trucks on display this weekend is a Colorado sculpted (mostly) out of sand. It’s mesmerizing to watch it materialize, but even more so more to watch it in about a minute.

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has been engineered to meet active lifestyles, offering more technology, versatility and efficient capability than midsize pickup competitors.

With the introduction of Colorado, Chevrolet will offer customers more choices than any other pickup truck brand, including midsize, full-size light duty and heavy-duty pickups. Colorado will be available in Chevrolet dealerships nationwide in the fall of 2014.
