2015 Chevrolet Colorado!

2015-Chevrolet-ColoradoZ71-009-medium
The new generation of mid size truck is here! Chevrolet has revealed the all-new Colorado, a powerful mid-size truck with true Chevrolet DNA. The all-new truck is expected to deliver class leading power, payload, and trailering rating and we expect it to arrive in showrooms in fall 2014, as a 2015 model.

Power & Refinement
From the outset, the new Colorado was designed for the North-American truck customer. It has segment first features like an aggressive design, a multitude of connectivity features, as well as available collision alert and lane departure warning.

Chevrolet expects the new Colorado to be the most powerful vehicle in its class, allowing owners to haul and tow more.  Under the hood sits a potent 2.5L I-4 while a 3.6L V-6 engine is also available- to improve power and efficient, both engines feature class-leading technologies like direct injection and variable valve timing.

The new truck will also offer a diesel engine in its second year-a powerful, proven Duramax 2.8L I-4 turbodiesel (already offered in other global markets). The diesel will help Colorado cover the expanding needs of the everyday customer.2015-Chevrolet-Colorado-027-medium

Designed to Haul
Colorado’s design is unique to North-America. In addition to its confident stance and stylish looks the new truck also features taller bed sides to help define its unique look, while also helping to better secure items in the cab.

The 2015 Colorado’s configurations are an extended cab model with a 6-foot bed, a crew cab with a 5-foot bed and a crew cab with a 6-foot bed. With the tailgate down, the 6-foot bed allows hauling of 8-foot-long items.

Plus, because it’s a true Chevy truck, it comes with great standard features design to help improve all aspects of the ownership experience.

And because it’s a true Chevy truck, the Colorado leaves nothing on the table when it comes to innovative solutions for hauling and accessing cargo:

  • Standard CornerStep rear bumper design pioneered on the 2014 Silverado
  • Available EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate makes raising the tailgate easier with one hand. It also features a damper for more-controlled lowering
  • Standard two-tier loading that allows a platform to effectively split the bed into upper and lower sections, making it easier to haul, store and conceal items like tools
  • Thirteen standard tie-down locations throughout the bed for use with available, movable cargo tie-down rings
  • Standard bed rail and tailgate protectors
  • Available factory-installed spray-in bed liner.

Specifications:
To meet the needs of every mid size truck customer, Colorado comes available in multiple trim levels:

WT, LT and Z71 trims are available, all in 2WD or 4WD. The off-road-inspired Z71 is the brawniest of the bunch. It also features a gunmetal grille surround – a change from the chrome standard on the other models – projector headlamps and unique 17-inch aluminum wheels.

2.5L I-4 – 193 hp & 184lb-ft (with appx. 90 percent of torque available from 2,000 rpm to 6,200 rpm)

3.6L V6 ­– 302hp & 270lb-ft

All models are matched with a six-speed automatic that complements the truck-tuned engines with features that make hauling and trailering easier and more comfortable, including auto grade braking and a tow/haul mode. Extended cab 2WD WT models equipped with the 2.5L engine are also available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Chevrolet will continue to work on and develop the Colorado until the start of production in 2014. The content of this release is based on current GM testing and is subject to change.
