Chevrolet has designed an all-new truck for 2015 that gives buyers the choice of a fuel-efficient truck with all of the utility offered of larger trucks without the full-size commitment. That new truck is the New Chevy Colorado Available Soon in Puyallup and 2015 marks its inaugural year. The mid-sized pickup has a more sporty, swept-back look than its Silverado brother that Chevrolet says should, “Attract buyers who want a truck without the full-size footprint or a V8.” The Colorado will be available as an extended cab with a 6′ bed, or as a crew cab in 5 or 6′ bed lengths. There will be two engine options to select from for the Colorado and they are the 193 hp 2.5L that comes standard on the base LT model, and the larger 302 hp 3.6L V6. Both engines wil lcome with a six-speed automatic transmission and sources say, “The four-cylinder should put out enough power for light duties around town and off-road, and the six-cylinder will be there for those who want to tow more and trailer bigger toys.” A 2.8L turbodiesel four-cylinder is expected to join the lineup in 2015 as well. The Colorado comes with an available six-speed automatic transmission that features a button-activated Tow/Haul mode for the 3.6L models.
The New Chevy Colorado Available Soon in Puyallup when properly equipped can tow up to 6,700 pounds. EPA fuel economy ratings haven’t been released yet, but sources say that the, “Aluminum hood and active grille shutters that close at highway speeds should help the Colorado achieve better mileage than its predecessor’s 26 mpg.” The Colorado is also the first truck in its class to combine design features such as inlaid, triple-sealed doors, and thick windshield and side glass to help reduce wind noise inside the cab. “Cockpit-style gauges and large, simple controls combine form and function for intuitive operation,” says Chevrolet. Both available leather-appointed and cloth seats are shaped for maximum support and leg room. Designers even gave the Colorado extra space in the headliner for taller drivers and passengers. Another feature of the New Chevy Colorado Available Soon in Puyallup will be a standard two-tier box system that provides and upper and lower storage area, perfect for hauling mountain bikes on top while leaving plenty of room for more gear below. If exploring the great outdoors is something you plan on doing, and you also plan on bringing friends and gear along, the Colorado is offered in a Crew Cab or Extended Cab model. Both model offer a standard StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System with rollover mitigation, along with 4-wheel Duralife ABS brakes, and an available four-wheel drive.
