Providing available best-in-class power and towing, Colorado offers advanced 2.5L I-4 and 3.6L V6 engines. And joining the engine lineup for the 2016 model year: the highly anticipated 2.8L Duramax Turbo Diesel. No other North American midsize pickup offers a turbo-diesel. But no matter which engine you choose, impressive performance and remarkable efficiency ride shotgun on every trip.
Colorado boasts best-in-class horsepower, payload and towing, meaning it’s more than capable of handling just about anything you might need to move.
The V6 engine in the all-new 2015 Colorado achieves an EPA-estimated best-in-class 26 MPG on the highway by implementing innovative powertrain technologies like Spark Ignition Direct Injection and deceleration fuel cutoff, which shuts off fuel to the engine when braking. The 2.5L I-4 engine boasts an impressive 27 MPG highway. Available Active Aero Shutters — a first among small trucks — are programmed to open and close behind the grille, reducing aerodynamic drag and increasing efficiency further. Because you shouldn’t interrupt your trip to stop for gas.
To enhance the unrivaled towing and payload provided by Colorado, an available 6-speed automatic transmission features a button-activated Tow/Haul mode on 3.6L V6 models. Tow/Haul mode helps minimize upshifting and downshifting, whether you’re hauling a trailer or carrying a load of bricks.
Colorado features an exclusive built-in CornerStep rear bumper for quick and easy access to your cargo.
The Cypress Green concept truck features an all-new grille and headlamp housings with blacked-out accents.
Custom wheel flares cover 35-inch-tall off-road tires that provide extreme off-road traction.
With a signal that’s more powerful than your smartphone or mobile hotspot, Colorado provides a powerful connection for up to seven devices. Stream music and video, and even surf the web to prove your most obscure sports claim.
Customize your driving experience by arranging the icons and features on the available Chevrolet MyLink 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen. Choose the information or options you use most and place them on your home screen. The interface allows you to touch and swipe on the screen just like you do on your smartphone. There’s even a USB to charge your phone or other electronic devices while storing them.
Colorado is the first small truck to combine design features such as inlaid, triple-sealed doors, thick windshield and side glass, and liquid-applied sound deadener to help reduce wind noise inside the cab and keep the road noise out. So you’ll be able to crank up the music on the available Bose® sound system while Colorado turns down the world outside.
Cockpit-style gauges and intuitive controls combine form and function for easy, intuitive operation. Both available leather-appointed and standard cloth seats are shaped for maximum support and provide over three inches more rear leg room than Tacoma.
A large center console provides easy, secure storage for your gadgets. With a dedicated nonskid space for charging devices, you’ll never hunt around for a misplaced smartphone or cord. Additional storage and up to four USB ports add convenience for the rest of the gang.
Colorado helps you see what's behind you with a standard rear vision camera that displays a view of the area behind your vehicle on the color display. First and foremost this is an important safety feature. It lets you see everything from a mystery telephone pole in the parking lot to kid on a bike crossing behind you.
Even the most vigilant drivers can't anticipate what others will do ahead of them - that's where the Colorado's available Forward Collision Alert, available on LT models, comes in. Relying on smart sensors to constantly scan traffic for stopped or slowing vehicles, this system can warn you before the risk of collision occurs. No other midsize truck offers this level of safety technology.
Colorado is the only midsize truck to offer an available Lane Departure Warning feature. This smart technology uses a camera mounted near the inside rearview mirror to help alert you if you unintentionally drift from your lane, helping keep you safe during the daily commute and when you're on the road to fun.
In the event of a collision, Colorado has been constructed with high-strength materials to help minimize any damage. This begins with a sturdy and durable frame. In fact, over 83% of the weight of the Colorado frame is made from high-strength steel and alloys that make it structurally rigid without adding to weight and sacrificing efficiency.
