At a ceremony yesterday evening during the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cars.com named the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado “Best Pickup Truck of 2015.”
“The impressive, all-new 2015 Colorado jumpstarts a category of trucks that was quickly fading away,” said Cars.com pickup truck editor Mark Williams. “Midsize pickup trucks have long been a favorite of both Cars.com experts and truck shoppers, so we’re thrilled to see them come back to life, starting with the new Colorado.”
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado starts at $20,995 including fees and is available in four-door extended- or crew-cab models. It has the segment’s best horsepower (200-305), EPA-estimated fuel economy (up to 27 mpg highway from the standard 2.5L I-4 with 2WD), and segment-leading maximum trailering rating (7,000 pounds with the 3.6L V6).
“Offering segment-leading capabilities and efficiency, with the latest in convenience and safety features, is our goal with the Colorado and the Cars.com’s award affirms our instincts. It is an efficiently sized, maneuverable solution for customers who want the cargo-hauling and trailering versatility of a truck without the size of a full-size pickup,” said Colorado marketing manager Tony Johnson.
Added Williams, “This truck offers shoppers a lot of bang for their buck with great features and an impressive ride, all at an affordable price.”
