Chevrolet is expanding the 2016 Colorado range with the introduction of two new special editions – Colorado Midnight Edition and Colorado Z71 Trail Boss.
The special editions of the pickup truck will be available in dealerships this fall. The Midnight Edition is designed to appeal buyers with its urban tuner look. The Z71 Trail Boss edition of the Colorado has been designed with the perspective of leaving the urban jungle behind.
Tony Johnson, marketing manager, Chevrolet Colorado said that the aggressive editions of the popular pickup trucks demonstrated different possibilities with Chevrolet Accessories, “whether it’s for street or trail or for both.”
The 2016 Colorado Midnight Edition gets a similar design theme seen on the Silverado midnight Edition with the blacked-out grille and 18 inch alloy wheels. It will only be available in a black paint scheme also featuring a spray on bedliner with a soft folding tonneau cover with the sill plates featuring the Chevrolet bow tie emblem.
The Midnight Edition will be based on the LT trim of the Colorado with the extended and crew cab bodystyles being available. It will be offered with an option of 2.5-liter and 3.6-liter petrol engines with the option of 2WD and 4WD. Also on offer, will be the new 2.8 litre Duramax turbo diesel engine.
The 2016 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss will get suspension upgrades based on Chevrolet’s off road truck suspension package with aggressive tyres and off road embellishments. It also gets 18 inch alloy wheels sporting Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec 265/65R17 all terrain tyres and an addition of a sport bar with LED trail lighting. Also on offer, will be tubular assist steps with blacked-out Chevrolet bow tie emblem along with all weather floor mats and a spray on bedliner.
This special edition will be available on the Z71 models with the extended and crew cab bodystyles. Like in the Midnight Edition the Z71 Trail Boss will be offered with a choice of 2.5-liter and 3.6-liter engines with an option of 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive. Similarly, the new 2.8 litre Duramax engine also will be available.
The prices of both the special edition models will be revealed sometime closer to market launch.
