ALL-NEW 2015 COLORADO.
With advanced technology to keep you connected and entertained, great fuel efficiency, and unmatched safety and refinement, when you step into the all-new 2015 Colorado, you’ll know you want a truck.
Colorado is reinventing the midsize pickup from the frame up. It starts with the latest technology. From an available high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection to available advanced safety features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, this is one smart small truck. Under the hood is an available 3.6L V6 that offers an EPA-estimated best-in-class 26 MPG highway fuel economy.
But don’t let the efficiency fool you – the same V6 also provides available best-in-class towing and payload. And with a sleek design and quiet, refined interior, Colorado might feel like an upscale sedan, but it’s all truck.
Providing available best-in-class power and towing, Colorado offers advanced 2.5L I-4 and 3.6L V6 engines. And joining the engine lineup for the 2016 model year: the highly anticipated 2.8L Duramax® Turbo-Diesel. No other North American midsize pickup offers a turbo-diesel. But no matter which engine you choose, impressive performance and remarkable efficiency ride shotgun on every trip.
Fuels adventure with less fuel
The V6 engine in the all-new 2015 Colorado achieves an EPA-estimated best-in-class 26 MPG† on the highway by implementing innovative powertrain technologies like Spark Ignition Direct Injection and deceleration fuel cutoff, which shuts off fuel to the engine when braking. The 2.5L I-4 engine boasts an impressive 27 MPG highway.† Available Active Aero Shutters — a first among small trucks — are programmed to open and close behind the grille, reducing aerodynamic drag and increasing efficiency further. Because you shouldn’t interrupt your trip to stop for gas.
Carry more while you carry on
Colorado boasts best-in-class horsepower, payload and towing, meaning it’s more than capable of handling just about anything you might need to move.
That’s the same 3.6L V6 engine that also delivers an EPA-estimated best-in-class 26 MPG† highway fuel economy. With the available trailering package, this small truck is rated to tow up to 7,000 lbs.† — delivering all the power you need to tow your adventure gear.
The 305-horsepower engine produces 269 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing Colorado to carry 1,590 lbs.† That makes moving everything from couches to camping equipment to dirt bikes a breeze.
To enhance the unrivaled towing and payload provided by Colorado, an available 6-speed automatic transmission features a button-activated Tow/Haul mode on 3.6L V6 models. Tow/Haul mode helps minimize upshifting and downshifting, whether you’re hauling a trailer or carrying a load of bricks.
