2015 Chevy Colorado Priced From $21,890

August 5, 2014

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will come with a base price of $21,890 when it goes on sale later this year.

The Colorado--and its twin, the GMC Canyon--are GM's new mid-size pickup trucks, the replacement for compact trucks GM sold under the same names through the 2012 model year.

The base Colorado will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, one that's related to the four-cylinders found in the Chevy Impala and Chevy Malibu. In the pickup truck, the power output is pegged at 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Gas mileage figures haven't been published, but the engine features direct injection, and at the base price point, comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Also standard on the base pickup: a rearview camera, a locking tailgate, and power windows. Four-wheel drive will be an option.

The Colorado will come in either extended-cab or four-door body styles. Extended-cab trucks will have a six-foot truck bed, while four-doors get a choice of five- or six-foot beds.

Other choices for buyers will include upgrades to a 3.6-liter V-6 with 305 horsepower; forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning systems; 4G LTE data connectivity with wireless hotspot capability; and an organization/accessory system for the bed.

 All Colorados will have six airbags, stability control with trailer-sway control, and hill start assist. Bluetooth will be available, as will a touchscreen interface with an eight-inch screen and multiple USB ports for charging and music storage.

Four-door, rear-wheel-drive Colorado LT pickups will sport a base price of $27,985, while a loaded four-door 4x4 starts at $34,990.

In 2016 GM will also offer a 2.8-liter turbodiesel four in the Colorado, which will team with grille shutters and some lightweight body panels for what Chevy calls "exceptional" efficiency.

We'll be driving the Colorado soon; stay tuned next month for full driving impressions. Until then, read more in our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado preview.
