Rugged has a new name.
The Chevrolet Colorado midsizer has already proven its popularity, outselling its rivals in 2020. The pickup is especially sought after in ZR2 Bison spec. The 2022 model is about to go into production, and Chevy is wasting no time offering enhanced packages for the pickup. The automaker just announced that the truck will be available with the famous Trail Boss package for LT and Z71 models. This kind of treatment has been available for the Silverado 1500 for some time (since 2019) and is one of the fastest-selling trims for that vehicle, an effect that Chevy hopes to recreate for the Colorado.
The new Trail Boss package adds a one-inch suspension-leveling kit for greater ground clearance, along with front and mid-vehicle skid plates in case you happen to go over something a little too jagged. You also get ZR2 wheels finished in black and wrapped in all-terrain rubber.
The cosmetic enhancements extend to Colorado and Chevrolet bowtie emblems in black, the deletion of the front air dam, and some red paint on the front tow hooks. We have only been shown the front and sides of the vehicle in the three above pics, but we expect that slightly more aggressive styling for the rear bumper may feature too.
Pricing for the new package hasn't been announced, but we'll likely find out before the package becomes available late this summer. Besides the aforementioned additions, Colorado models with the Trail Boss package will remain roughly the same as regular versions. This means an eight-inch infotainment display with optional navigation, a built-in WiFi hotspot, and the availability of advanced driver aids like forward collision alert and lane departure warning. Rear parking sensors are included too. If you're interested in one of these, you should act soon. The Trail Boss package is always very popular and as the first such to be fitted to the Colorado, you can bet that it'll fly off dealer lots.
