It was announced that the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will carry a price tag of $20,995, including $895 dealer freight charge, when it will go on sale this fall. For this amount of money you will get the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection that generates 200 hp and uses a 6-speed manual transmission.
Moreover, the vehicle comes as standard with power windows with express up for the driver, a rear-vision camera with dynamic guide lines as well as a locking tailgate. As an option, Chevrolet will offer a bigger 3.6-liter V6 engine that develops 305 hp, bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Also as an option, the manufacturer offers 4G LTE with a built-in WiFi hotspot, Forward Collision Alert and Land Departure Warning and the GearOn accessory system. As you may know already, the 2015 Colorado is available in two cab configurations, extended-cab and crew-cab.
The crew-cab configurations offer 5- or 6-foot boxes, while the extended-cab models arrive with a 6-foot box. So, if you want more than the standard model, the 2015 Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and a 5-foot box starts at $27,985, including destination charges.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with 5-foot box has a starting price of $34,990. More details regarding pricing and EPA fuel economy estimates will be available at a later date.
The North American design of the new Chevrolet Colorado delivers a sporty character and an imposing stance. Its North America, exclusive taller bedsides match the cab’s aggressive, raked belt line, thereby giving the new Colorado a characteristic proportion that underpins its athleticism. These taller bedsides also allow the Colorado to better secure items in the bed.
For the 2015 model year, the new Colorado could be availed in several configurations: an extended cab model with a six-foot bed, a crew cab with a six-foot bed and a crew cab with a five-foot bed. Once the tailgate is down, the six-foot bed could haul even an eight-foot-long cargo.
Ken Parkinson, executive director of Chevrolet Design, remarked that the design of the new Colorado injects youthful, fresh air to the midsize truck segment while progressively interpreting the brand’s true-truck styling. He called the Colorado as the younger, more eager brother of the Silverado.
New 2015 Colorado is available in WT, LT and Z71 trims, either in 2WD or 4WD. For customers seeking the most aggressive version, the Z71 is a great proposition, as this off-road-inspired model is provided with a gunmetal grille surround flanked by projector headlamps and rides on distinct 17-inch aluminum wheels.
Chevy provided the new Colorado with triple-sealed doors inlaid in the body sides, thereby enhancing its aerodynamic performance while giving the vehicle a quieter interior.
