Exterior design of 2015 Chevy Colorado
Lighter materials are most certainly responsible for the reduction in weight, and the new Colorado weighs 400kg less than Silverado, for example. Competitors on the market in its category are slightly less capable. The new Colorado has definitely remained tough even though it is a bit smaller than its predecessor, but one thing is for sure, you can not say that it is a full-size pickup anymore. Despite this fact, you wouldn’t notice the difference, once you are inside of it because it succeeded to retain the feel of big, spacious and luxurious pickup truck.
Even though bulky and aggressive look and big wheels are there to save the tradition, it offers a gasoline-hungry engine without turbo diesel option, so it might put some questions about the economy of this vehicle on the table.
There are four trims available. First of all, there is Base which is available with the Extended cab only, and then there are LT, WT and Z71 trim levels.
