2011 Chevrolet Colorado Concept

Chevrolet Unveils Colorado Show Truck Boldly styled show truck previews next-generation midsize pickup 2011-03-21 BANGKOK, Thailand - Chevrolet today revealed the Colorado Show Truck in advance of the Bangkok International Auto Show, where it is making its global public debut. The concept previews the next-generation Colorado midsize pickup truck, which will build on Chevrolet's strong truck DNA and award-winning heritage. The Colorado goes on sale in Thailand later this year. "Thailand is the world's-largest market for midsize pickups, so this was the perfect location in which to unveil our new Colorado," said Susan Docherty, vice president, GMIO Sales, Marketing and Aftersales. "Trucks have been part of Chevrolet's core for nearly all of its 100-year history. The Colorado reinforces that heritage with expressive design, refinement and uncompromising capability." The show truck features an extended-cab body atop a high-stance AWD chassis and rides on large, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires. Power comes from an efficient 2.8L turbo-diesel engine, which produces a broad torque band for excellent cargo and towing capability. "Although this is a show vehicle, the basic proportions and form convey the vision for the next-generation Colorado that we will bring to market," said Brad Merkel, GM's global vehicle line executive. "It reflects a stylized version of the new truck, one that takes into account rugged dependable truck capabilities for commercial use as well as sophisticated refinement for personal-use needs." While the new Colorado was developed within GM's global product development organization, engineers took careful steps to ensure it would meet local market needs. Roberto Rempel, GM's global vehicle chief engineer, lived in Thailand for several months during the truck's development, immersing himself in the market and observing how the Thai people use their trucks and the road conditions they experience. "Pickups are instrumental in the vibrant Thai economy and owners take great pride in their trucks, which are used for both work and personal driving," he said. "These customers ask a lot of their trucks, so the powertrains and chassis must be very robust to earn their trust -- and that's exactly what we've delivered."

Gone is the original engine sitting under the hood and, instead, a dry-sump 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine making 730 hp is powering this bad boy, paired to a 4L80E transmission. But, the concept doesn’t rely on the fact this is most likely the only LS7-powered Chevy Colorado in existence. The tuning shop has crafted a full-blown custom suspension for the 2015 Colorado Prerunner with 22-inch front and 27-inch rear travel, and a Curie Full floater nine-inch rear end. As if all of that custom work isn’t enough, the 2015 Colorado Prerunner benefits from 4130 front arms, spindles and trailing arms, Fox racing 2.5-inch diameter coils and 3.5-inch series bypass with 2.5-inch bump-stops and Wilwood six-piston front and rear brakes. Finally, a set of massive BF Goodrich Baja T/A KR tires provide the means to take the 2015 Colorado Prerunner anywhere. Truck was built by: Roadster Shop 28775 N. Rte 83 Mundelein, IL 60060
