2015 Chevrolet Colorado cars review
The actual current king of midsizers, the actual Toyota Tacoma, is really a solid providing inside the tiny truck segment, however it hasn’t obtained any significant improvements for many a long time and it is beginning to really truly come to sense dated. Same goes to the Nissan Frontier.
And though the actual 2015 Chevrolet Colorado ought to have the ability to outsell each of those trucks on the contemporary design and interior alone, it continues to be to become noticed regardless of whether or otherwise the marketplace location for midsize pickups is massive sufficient to aid an additional participant.
Let’s check out many of the attributes which Chevy is banking on to sell the actual new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Exterior
We have to admit we love the exterior styling. It looks young, eager, and much sportier than its big brother 2015 Chevrolet Colorado — not to mention light years ahead of its competition. Speaking of which, that is pretty much the only thing the Colorado is lacking. Ford and Ram is stagnant in the midsized truck segment while Nissan has let the Frontier have run their course without much updating. The Toyota Tacoma has seen a few minor updates, but rides on the same platform and powered by the same 4.0-liter, V-6 engine in has for almost a decade. Sales for the Colorado should be like shooting fish in a barrel.
Offered in both extended and crew cab configurations, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is case study material in a Goldilocks situation – its just big enough and just small enough. The extended cab comes only with a six-foot bed while the larger crew cab comes with a five-foot bed. The six-foot bed is an option on crew cab models.
The extended cab still features rear suicide doors that require opening the front doors for access. The design might be old, but with a smaller cab, structural rigidity is less of an issue than in the larger 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Both cabs have inlaid doors set within the roof structure for greater NHV control.
The two-tier loading system greatly increases the amount of gear the Colorado can carry. The optional rack system fits snugly into the standard pre-formed bed pockets to hold anything from bicycles and kayaks to ladders and construction equipment. Extended cab WT models also offer a rear seat delete option for extra storage of bulky items; perfect for tradesmen and service professionals.
The bed is the business end of a truck and Chevrolet spend a lot of time making sure the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado worked for its customers. The CornerStep and bed-rail hand-grab system is borrowed from the Silverado and comes standard on both bed sizes. Chevy’s EZ-lift and lower tailgate is available as is an optional factory spray-in bed liner.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Interior
The dashboard features many appearance cues from the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado , like the large center stack and controls. An optional eight-inch touch screen is home to the latest MyLink software. A 3.4-inch display resides in the instrument cluster for viewing all the important vehicle information, like fuel consumption. Six airbags come standard, including a head side curtain airbag designed to keep occupants from being ejected in a roll over crash.
“Good enough” is the term that comes to mind when looking at the dashboard’s styling. Yes, it carries the same design language from the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado , but it just seems to lack soul. We’re not saying it’s bad, but its just on the boring side. But with it being a truck and sold to customers who do work or dirty outdoor activities, the choice of a no-frills dash is probably the right one.
A center console gear shifter brings a little class to the mid-size truck and frees up valuable dashboard real estate. Directly forward of the gear shifter is a compartment with the multimedia connections and USB ports for charging phones and other devises. As of yet, the Colorado does not offer push-button starting, but rather uses GM’s new flip-open style conventional key.
Crew cab models offer back seat occupants enough room to stretch out for decently long trips. It’s no Ford F-150 in terms of rear leg room, but it’s enough to be comfortable. An under seat storage compartment helps keep gear organized as well.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado Pricing And Availability
Official pricing for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has not been released yet, but we figure it will start under the 2014 SIlverado’s base price of $25,575. Also considering the competition’s pricing begins around $18,000, we’d estimate the new Colorado to start somewhere around $20,000.
No set date has been set for availability either, but we do know it will be Fall 2014 when the trucks start rolling.
