GM receives 30,000 orders for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado

Article by Christian A., on September 3, 2014

Last month, Chevrolet announced that the 2015 Colorado will be priced from $20,995, including $895 destination charge. Apparently, the price tag and the new design made dealers order almost 30,000 Colorado pickups, which represents five times more than the GM’s forecast.

Set to reach the dealerships by October or early November, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will be built at GM”s assembly plant in Wentzville, Mo.

According to Chevrolet U.S. chief Brian Sweeney, the impressive numbers are a sign that the dealers believe in this product. Still, Ram is a threat for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as they continue to offer aggressive truck incentives and brand’s share increase from 18.5 percent in July 2013 to 21 percent through July 2014.

September promises to be a perfect month for Chevrolet as Ford idled its production for eight weeks as it prepares to roll off the redesigned aluminum-bodied F-150. The 2015 F-150 will hit the showrooms by the end of the year, or early next year.

According to Sweeney, the next four months can play out pretty strongly for the company. For those who don’t know, the 2015 Colorado comes as standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, developing 200 hp and bolted to a 6-speed manual transmission.

Chevrolet also offers a bigger 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 305 hp and bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 2015 Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and a 5-foot box costs $27,985, while the 2015 Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with 5-foot box is priced at $34,990.
