REVIEW 2015 Chevrolet Colorado 193 hp-302 hp
http://Carwp.blogspot.com.br Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2015 Chevrolet
Colorado, which will redefine the midsize truck and offer real truck
capability and versatility to customers who don't require a full-size
The new Colorado is built with the DNA of a true Chevy truck, expected to
deliver class-leading power, payload and trailering ratings. Colorado goes
on sale in fall 2014 as a 2015 model.
"Our strategy is simple: meet the needs of the broadest possible customer
base, and let them choose precisely the right truck to meet their needs,"
said Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president and president of
GM North America. "The all-new Colorado benefits from the solid foundation
established by the Silverado, and it reinvents the midsize truck while
reinvigorating the segment at the same time."
The new Colorado was developed for the North American truck customer, with
distinctive design, comfort and connectivity features, including segment
firsts such as available forward collision alert and lane departure
Chevrolet expects Colorado to be the most powerful truck in the segment,
allowing owners to haul and tow more. A 2.5L I-4 is standard, and a 3.6L
V-6 is available. Each engine is tuned, tested and validated for truck use,
and each features direct injection and variable valve timing to make the
most of power and efficiency. Each is matched with a six-speed automatic
When properly equipped, the Chevrolet Colorado is expected to offer class
leading payload capacity and trailering capacity of more than 6,700 pounds
(3,039 kg). That is more than enough capability to throw a weekend's worth
of camping gear in the bed and tow a boat to a favorite lake.
Colorado will also offer the segment's only diesel engine in its second
year - a proven Duramax 2.8L I-4 turbodiesel already offered in global markets. The
diesel engine will expand Colorado's powertrain lineup to cover the
broadest range of needs.
"We designed the Colorado to be the most versatile and most capable in its
segment, bar none," said Jeff Luke, executive engineer, GM Trucks. "Not
everyone needs full-size capability, but they still deserve the strength
and true-truck attributes that come in larger models. The Colorado delivers
capability with confidence - and a fun-to-drive spirit that complements
Designed with a zeal for adventure
The Colorado's North American design is unique, with a confident stance and
a sporty demeanor. Taller bedsides, for example, are exclusive to North
America and match the aggressive, raked belt line of the cab, creating a
distinctive proportion that reinforces the truck's athleticism while better
securing items stored in the bed.
The 2015 Colorado's configurations are an extended cab model with a 6-foot
bed, a crew cab with a 5-foot bed and a crew cab with a 6-foot bed. With
the tailgate down, the 6-foot bed allows hauling of 8-foot-long items.
"The new Colorado's design brings a youthful breath of fresh air to the
midsize truck segment and puts a progressive spin on Chevrolet's true-truck
styling," said Ken Parkinson, executive director of Chevrolet Design. "It's
like the younger, more eager brother of the Silverado - a Chevy truck
through and through, with great zeal and a spirit of adventure."
WT, LT and Z71 trims are available, all in 2WD or 4WD. The
off-road-inspired Z71 is the brawniest of the bunch. It also features a
gunmetal grille surround - a change from the chrome standard on the other
models - projector headlamps and unique 17-inch aluminum wheels.
The Chevy Colorado features triple-sealed doors inlaid in the body sides,
like the 2014 Silverado, for improved aerodynamic performance and a quieter
To help keep overall mass down and improve the front-to-rear weight
balance, the Colorado features a segment-first aluminum hood. It also
features the segment's only active aero grille shutters, which close at
certain highway speeds to enhance aerodynamics.
And because it's a true Chevy truck, the Colorado leaves nothing on the
table when it comes to innovative solutions for hauling and accessing
-Standard CornerStep rear bumper design pioneered on the 2014 Silverado
-Available EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate that uses an internal torsion bar to
make raising the tailgate easier with one hand, and a damper for
-Standard two-tier loading that allows a platform to effectively split the
bed into upper and lower sections, making it easier to haul, store and
conceal items such as tools
-Thirteen standard tie-down locations throughout the bed for use with
available, movable cargo tie-down rings
-Standard bed rail and tailgate protectors
