The 2015 Colorado looks amazing!
These all-new midsize Chevrolet trucks stand tall with their big Silverado brothers.
Z71 off-road packages raised the ride height, while the extra-short overhangs will surely be an asset off-road.
Capabilities will vary across the Colorado line, with engines topping out with a five-cylinder….
Just kidding! The top engine is the excellent 3.6-liter V-6 best known from the Cadillac portfolio, but this time delivering great torque and even 302 horsepower through a standard six-speed automatic.
Even the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder has ‘bulked up’ – producing 193 horsepower and about the same torque level in the base trims.
Not too shabby, nor is the roomy cabin and very trendy styling throughout. This truck will be a dream for younger truck shoppers all over the world.
The Colorado arrives in late summer or fall 2014, so the waiting might be the hardest part.

2015 CHEVROLET COLORADO STARTS AT $20,995
Includes extended cab, 200-horsepower 2.5L engine, 6-speed manual transmission
DETROIT – Suggested retail prices for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado extended-cab pickup will start at $20,995, including an $895 dealer freight charge, Chevrolet announced today.
Standard features will include a 200-horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection and continuously variable valve timing for strong midrange torque; a 6-speed manual transmission; power windows with express up for the driver; a rear-vision camera with dynamic guide lines; and a locking tailgate.
“Colorado is an all-new midsize pickup that offers truck customers great versatility and great value,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. “It will also have strong appeal for people who know they want a truck, but want one that is easier to maneuver in traffic and easier to park at work or at home.”
Available options will include a 305-horsepower 3.6L V-6, also with direct fuel injection and variable valve timing; a 6-speed automatic transmission; 4G LTE with a built-in WiFi hotspot; Forward Collision Alert and Land Departure Warning; and the GearOn™ accessory system, a comprehensive solution for organizing and carrying bikes, paddle boards and other equipment.
Colorado customers can chose from two cab configurations, extended-cab and crew-cab. Crew-cab Colorados will offer a choice of 5- or 6-foot boxes; extended-cab models come with the 6-foot box.
Other Colorado models also will offer great value. For example, the Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and the 5-foot box has a starting price, including dealer freight, of $27,985. The Colorado Z71 crew cab 4×4 with the 5-foot box starts at $34,990.
Colorado will be available in Chevrolet dealerships nationwide in the fall of 2014. Detailed pricing and EPA fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.
