2015 Chevrolet Colorado Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet Colorado Concept. 2015 Chevrolet Colorado changes is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Release Date.
General Motors unveiled all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado mid-size pickup truck at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2013. Not only does the new truck redefine the midsize pickup truck segment, but it also fills a gap in GM’s lineup left when the first-generation Colorado (based on the GMT355 platform) was discontinued in 2012.
After a brief absence, General Motors is re-entering the midsize pickup segment with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. GM recently ended its midsize pickup production with the last Colorado and GMC Canyon models, ceding the field to the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier (Ford ended U.S. production of its Ranger midsize pickup in 2011). Even before their end however, the Colorado and Canyon were saddled with inefficient powertrains and subpar interiors and never seriously contested the Tacoma’s supremacy in the segment.
The mid-size truck class finally gets a new entry next year, when the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado stakes a claim on some of the shoppers who’d otherwise buy an aging Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier. With a maximum bed length of six feet and with its biggest engine a 3.6-liter V-6, the Colorado will barely overlap the base versions of the new 2014 Chevy Silverado and its kin, the GMC Sierra.
The Colorado is America’s first new compact pickup in ages, boasting fresh looks, new tech, and convenience features galore. Power comes from a base 193-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 184 lb-ft of torque or an optional 3.6-liter V-6 with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The V-6 offers a 6700-lb towing capacity. Extended and crew cabs, five- and six-foot beds are available, as is a six-speed manual for base models; LT and Z71 models get a six-speed automatic. The Colorado goes on sale this fall.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Price
Pricing for the new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has been set at $26,760 – $35,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
Chevy tells us that it’s too early to discuss exact pricing, but they did say that the truck will start well below the Silverado’s $26,760 base price. Our best estimate places the basic Colorado at just under $20,000. As mentioned, higher trims are expected to cross over into Silverado territory, so look for fully loaded models to reach $35,000.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Interior
The pre-production Colorado’s upgrades in interior quality, comfort and convenience mark a vast improvement over the last model. Cabin quality appears on par with the Cruze compact sedan, and with the Chevy MyLink infotainment interface and smartphone integration, the Colorado looks like a nicer place to sit than in the relatively plain Frontier.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado seats up to five people in the Crew Cab model and comes standard with cloth seats, six air bags, a rearview camera and a 3.4-inch driver information screen. Available features include an 8-inch touch screen with multiple USB ports, navigation, leather seats, OnStar and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, which allows occupants to control audio and smartphone functions using voice commands. Forward collision alert and lane departure warning are also optional. The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado goes on sale this fall.
All Colorados will have six airbags, stability control with trailer-sway control, and hill start assist; Z71 models will also get hill descent control. Forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning systems will be available.
On the connectivity front, Bluetooth will be available, as will a touchscreen interface with an eight-inch screen (on LT and Z71 Colorados) and multiple USB ports for charging and music storage. Navigation will be an option, as will GM’s OnStar service beyond a free trial period.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Exterior
A properly equipped Colorado is rated to tow up to 7,000 pounds, which is more than the current Tacoma. EPA fuel economy estimates haven’t been announced, but a lightweight aluminum hood and active grille shutters that close at highway speeds should help the Colorado achieve better mileage than its predecessor’s 26 mpg on the highway.
With three configurations and three trim levels, the Colorado tries to slice and dice the smaller-truck market in sensible ways. There’s a crew-cab model with a five-foot bed for more passenger-heavy uses, and one with a six-foot bed, as well as an extended-cab version with a six-foot bed.
Inside, the Colorado’s ruggedness is toned down in favor of a more elegant cockpit largely inspired by the world of crossovers. The truck is equipped with a full center console that houses the shifter and two generously-sized cupholders, an upright dashboard and an easy-to-read instrument cluster that integrates a configurable 3.4-inch driver information display.
Most Colorados can be fitted with an eight-inch touch screen that runs Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, which integrates entertainment and navigation functions (when equipped) and also offers access to smartphone-based apps like Pandora radio and Stitcher radio. The system can be controlled through dashboard knobs, steering wheel buttons or the aforementioned touch screen, and there is also a voice recognition system for hands-free calls, destination entering, song selection and more.
On those six-footers, Chevy says it’ll be possible to carry eight-foot loads with the tailgate down which sounds obvious, but implies some sort of standard flip-out bed extender. All Colorados get a corner-step bumper, 13 tie-down points, a two-tier loading system, and can be fitted with a damped tailgate and a spray-in bedliner.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Engine
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 193 horsepower. A 3.6-liter V6 that makes 302 horsepower is available. A six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive come standard, while four-wheel drive is optional. A two-tier loading system with a platform that creates two levels of cargo space in the pickup bed is standard. GMC’s EZ Lift and Lower system, which makes the tailgate easier to open and close, is available. Crew Cabs are available with a 5-foot or 6-foot bed. Extended Cabs come only with a 6-foot bed. Chevrolet expects the 2015 Colorado to have a towing capacity of 6,700 pounds.
Both engines will come with a six-speed automatic transmission enhanced with automatic grade braking and a tow/haul mode. A six-speed manual will also be available on select rear-wheel-drive extended cab models. A 2.8-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder is expected for the 2016 model year.
Two engines will be available when the Colorado goes on sale late next year. An all-aluminum 2.5-liter four with 193 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque is standard. For those seeking more power or 6700 pounds of towing capacity the base tow rating remains a secret Chevy will offer a 3.6-liter DOHC V-6 with 302 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will come hooked to a six-speed automatic and will have optional four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case. There will be disc brakes at every corner with four-piston calipers borrowed from the Silverado clamping onto the front rotors.
