The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is priced to sell, starting at $20,995 including destination.
The American automaker is hoping that the Colorado’s pricing will help give truck buyers more choices when shopping with the mid-size pickup priced about $8,000 to $10,000 less than a comparably equipped Silverado. Standard on the 2015 Colorado will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 200 hp and a six-speed manual transmission. Features include power windows with express up for the driver, a rear-vision camera with dynamic guide lines and a locking tailgate.
Available options for the affordable pickup include a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 hp, a six-speed automatic transmission, 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning and the automaker’s GearOn accessory system. Colorado shoppers can choose from two cab configurations, extended-cab and crew-cab.
The Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and a five-foot box will start from $27,985 while the Colorado Z71 crew cab 4×4 with the five-foot box will have a MSRP of $34,990.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will be available in fall 2014.
“Colorado is an all-new midsize pickup that offers truck customers great versatility and great value,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. “It will also have strong appeal for people who know they want a truck, but want one that is easier to maneuver in traffic and easier to park at work or at home.”
GM also announced pricing for the GMC Canyon which rings in at $21,880 for a base , including a $925 dealer freight charge. Standard equipment includes the 200 hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine, LED lighting, four-way power driver’s seat, CornerStep rear bumper, and 16-inch aluminum wheels.
