Colorado Shows Promise in a Stale Segment
The current king of midsizers, the Toyota Tacoma, is a solid offering in the small truck segment, but it hasn’t received any major improvements for years and is starting to feel dated. Same goes for the Nissan Frontier.
And while the Colorado should be able to outsell both of these trucks on its modern design and interior alone, it remains to be seen whether or not the market place for midsize pickups is big enough to support another player.
Let’s take a look at some of the features that Chevy is banking on to sell the new 2015 Colorado.
Before trucks and utility vehicles became all the rage, large sedans used to be the heart of the American car market. They dominated thoroughfares and back roads of this country for decades. Big Buicks, mighty Mopars and forceful Fords were a way of life for drivers just half a lifetime ago.
Law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day; it’s important they have the right tools to do their dangerous jobs. Helping serve those that serve others, Chevrolet just announced a new police-ready version of the 2015 Tahoe SUV.
Those interested in getting the Corvette Stingray Z51 could be in for a long delay, as the waiting list continues to grow.
Color Me Surprised
Automakers have come a long way from the days of Henry Ford’s Model T. While many colors were available over the “Tin Lizzy’s” long production run, this rugged and bare-bones vehicle was only offered in black for many years. Talk about choice!
Today, car manufacturers offer more hues than there are colors of the rainbow. But that’s not all. Depending on the product, customers can get shimmering metal flake or even special pearlescent paint jobs that seem to change color under different lighting conditions.
Spurning the basics like black, white and beige, even mass-market companies are offering buyers ever more assaulting hues. These days you don’t have to pony up the cash for a Lamborghini to drive something bright. Here are the Top 10 Craziest Paint Colors Available Today.
