These new Colorados are sweet!
The Chevrolet Colorado is a smash hit. It was Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year in 2014 and is a big reason why GM beat out Ford for most truck sales in the first half of 2015. We talked about how GM would likely try to push its advantage instead of standing pat and that theory has been given further credence with the unveiling of the Colorado Midnight Edition and ZL1 Trail Boss. The first truck is designed for the streets whereas the second is meant to go off-road.
The Colorado Midnight Edition is based off of the Midnight Silverado. It’s all-black, including awesome blacked-out 18-inch aluminum wheels and a dark folding tonneau cover. The ZL1 Traill Boss is a more aggressive version of the same truck shown off earlier in the year at the Cleveland Auto Show. The most obvious additions are the sports bar with LED lighting and the badass blacked out 17-inch wheels wrapped in imposing Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec 265/65R17 all-terrain tires. Both trucks will be available in regular or extended cab and with 2WD or 4WD. For engine options you have a choice the 2.5-liter inline-four, 3.6-liter V6 or the 2.8-liter Duramax diesel. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
