Before the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado officially goes on sale in the next few weeks, Chevrolet has rolled out the online configurator tool for this new midsize truck. In addition to full pricing for the Colorado, this tool also shows the myriad configurations available for the Colorado, including powertrains, bed lengths, and equipment packages.
The least expensive version of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is the extended-cab model with the long bed, which starts at $20,995 for the base trim level. This truck comes standard with rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission that pairs with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The base truck doesn’t come with much equipment, but you do get a power driver’s seat, air conditioning, a backup camera and a USB port as standard.
Next for the extended-cab is the WT (Work Truck) trim level, which costs $22,650 to start with rear-wheel drive and the same six-speed manual. A six-speed automatic costs $650 extra, and the 3.6-liter V-6 engine is available for $1235 (or $950 extra on Z71 models). Four-wheel drive is offered with both engines and mates only with the six-speed automatic, with the 4WD extended-cab WT starting at $27,760 with destination.
The other two trim levels for extended-cab models are the LT and Z71 models, which cost $26,045 and 28,505, respectively, with rear-wheel drive and $30,095 and $32,430, respectively, with four-wheel drive. LT trims gain a MyLink infotainment system, Bluetooth, OnStar with 4G LTE, cruise control, keyless entry, and alloy wheels; Z71 trims are slightly off-road oriented with a locking rear differential, hill descent control, an off-road suspension, and larger wheels and tires.
LT models also offer three packages, including the $1080 Luxury Package that adds automatic climate control, heated leather seats, and chrome trim on the outside, as well as the $395 Safety Package that bundles forward collision warning and lane departure warning.
2015 Chevrolet Colorado crew cab models follow a similar structure, with WT, LT, and Z71 trims in either short box or long box configurations. All crew cab models still come standard with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic transmission, with rear- or four-wheel drive available with either the four-cylinder or the V-6 engine.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado crew cab, short box, WT rear-wheel-drive model costs $25,205, with the long-bed models starting $1520 higher. All in, a loaded 2015 Chevrolet Colorado LT crew cab with the long box, four-wheel drive, and the V-6 engine tops out at $37,870 with destination, including the aforementioned Luxury and Safety packages as well as the $495 navigation option and the $500 premium audio system.
