Chevrolet Colorado is the famous American pickup truck, together with its twin GMC Canyon it is one of the best sold pick-up trucks on the American market, although the Ford’s F Series still rules this class. A lot is expected from the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and we are eagerly waiting its arrival.
Originally, first Colorado was made in cooperation with General Motors and ISUZU, car manufacturer from Japan. There is also a Japanese version of Chevrolet Colorado, called ISUZU D-Max, which is also one of best sold Japanese pickup trucks. Shortly after the launch Colorado gained huge success in its relatively short (if you compare it with Ford F 150 for example) history. 2014 Chevrolet Colorado is the first model in the second generation of this famous pick-up truck.
Since the last Chevrolet Colorado model went through a big facelift with whom it entered its second generation, the 2015 model will not change much. It will have a real pick up looks, big bumpers, bumpy lines and it will look as masculine as popular. In one sentence, it will be the pickup that can get things done. Front part of the vehicle will have some Sierra elements, like: three-bar grille, squared-off fender flares and fog lights placed on the front bumper. As usual it will share a lot of exterior features with its GMC twin, like doors and glass roof. On the back it will have highly useful tail step, for easier cargo loading,
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date
The 2015 model year will bring big changes in pick-up trucks interior design. In years before, the interior design wasn’t really important for the car makers, but since in the last few years a lot of people start buying pickup trucks for pleasure rides and not only for work, they demanded highly stylish and comfortable interiors with vast number of hi tech features. Chevrolet will definitely work on connectivity options for the new Colorado interior, so we can expect some standard good Chevrolet connectivity application inside like: MyLink for example and smartphone integration app, Bluetooth, USB ports etc.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will come with variety of engines of different sizes and power capabilities. Standard version will come with 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which will deliver 193 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. For the people who want more than that, there is going to be a 3.6-liter V6 with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Since it brings more power and torque the V6 is will be much better for off-road enthusiasts. These engines will be paired with 6 speed automatic transmission and they will come with 4 wheel drive standard.
Another great improvement that we could get with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is the new diesel engine. The 2.8 liter inline four Duramax unit could be offered from 2016th. This engine is already available in global truck and it pumps out 197 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Reports further suggest that these numbers will be slightly lower because of the emissions standards in U.S. but still it brings torque that is comparable with much larger gasoline engines.
Price Of 2015 Chevrolet Colorado
Price and release date for 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is not out yet. We can expect some more information on the price to come during the summer or fall of 2014 and Chevy Colorado to reach dealer shops in the beginning of 2015. Since there are no big changes to the next year model we do not expect to see any changes on the price. It is possible that it will go slightly up and if that happens it will be priced at $19,000 up to $32,000, at least these are estimations.
