If a 4 Wheel Parts catalog spilled all over a Chevy Colorado it’d be this Thai Colorado Xtreme concept. It’s a caricature on wheels and it’s perfect. Now this is a Z71 worthy of an “Off-Road” sticker.
The Chevy Trailblazer is not dead. Seriously, Chevrolet builds it today, an SUV version of the current Colorado. Remind me why we can’t buy it in America?
After inexplicably delaying delivery for months, it sounds like GM has finally started sending preordered Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks with the 2.8 Duramax diesel engine to dealerships and customers.
Now doesn’t seem like a good time to buy a diesel Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon. Just ask the people who have tried, and are without their trucks months after placing orders.
The Hope Technik LF5G “Red Rhino” is based off a Chevy Colorado-cousin Isuzu D-Max, but with no doors and a giant water pump on the back it looks a whole lot cooler. And you thought you crammed a lot of accessories onto you Ranger back in high school.
We’ve seen a few renderings and bits to make the 2015 Chevy Colorado a little more exciting, but this “400 horsepower” supercharged desert toy is my favorite modified version of the mid-sized truck so far.
“Diesel Chevy truck” sounds as American as John Wayne watching Jackass on a phone while he’s eating a hot dog and picking a fight at a baseball game. But even though the four-cylinder Duramax rumbling in the new Colorado and GMC Canyon has been around since 2011, it wasn’t actually fit for the U.S.A. until now.
I initially dismissed the the 2015 Chevy Colorado Trail Boss press release because no ZR2, no care. Then I saw that roll bar! It’s definitely not a safety device but it is the first OEM pickup truck roll bar that’s come out since, I think, I’ve been old enough to read. Come on automakers, bring these babies back!
Canadians are crazy for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. So much so that at least 400 people who wanted one will just have to wait ‘til next year while GM scrambles to stamp out more trucks.
You want the capability of a truck but can’t be burdened with something you need an air-traffic controller to help park. Your “mid-sized” truck options may be limited in the US, but they’re about to get a whole lot better. Here’s a roundup for what’s out there now.
GM fired us right up with the tough-and-tidy 2015 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 off-road concept, but all we get in showrooms are the flaccid Z71 trim and pointless "Trail Boss" package. If you want to see the Colorado turned into a solid off-roader that can you can still drive every day, the aftermarket has finally stepped…
GM trotted out this lifted, armored, diesel-powered 2016 Chevy Colorado ZR2 at last month's LA Auto Show and proved the company had the off-road market on their radar. Rumors suggested Chevy might actually the ZR2 happen in as little as three to six months, at least in Canada.
Here's the second "modified" 2015 Chevy Colorado as presented by GM. It's just like the first one; establishing that a roll bar, bikes, stickers, and removing the front spoiler rounds out Chevy's "how to quickly and cheaply make a Colorado look cool" list. If the spoiler must stay, can we at least get a quick-release?
Long ago, the American automakers ceded the small truck market to the Asian manufacturers. Now they want it back, and the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is a great start. It's the small diesel truck we've been dreaming about.
American car companies are slowly but surely caving in to my constant goading and starting to make smaller trucks. Not much smaller, sadly, but it's a start. Like Chevy's new midsize Colorado, which will be unveiled at the LA Auto Show.
