News for the Motor Trend Truck of the Year-winning 2015 Chevrolet Colorado continues to get better by the week. And even though the auto industry is off for the holidays, we still have a discovery to share with you.
On December 18, 2014, General Motors filed a trademark for the word “Nightfall,” described as an “option package for a motor vehicle comprising a black exterior, black grille, black 5-inch assist steps, 18-inch aluminum wheels, polished exhaust tips, spray-in bedliner, remote start and automatic climate control.”
The filing can be found on the US Patent and Trademark Office website. We’re not sure when/if the new appearance package will launch, but it could be for the Colorado’s 2016 model year.
What leads us to believe that the Nightfall package will fold into the Chevrolet Colorado lineup? 18-inch rims is perhaps the largest giveaway. The larger 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 offer larger wheels on their high-end models, and have already announced special black-out packages already, such as the Sierra Elevation.
