There’s no slowing down Chevrolet and the incoming Colorado variants. Fresh off the heels of the Colorado GearOn special edition shown in Chicago and the new “box delete” option for fleet and business operations comes the Colorado Z71 Trail Boss special edition.
Unveiled at the 2015 Cleveland Auto Show, Chevrolet introduces the Trail Boss special edition for those looking for added off-road capabilities, but retained in-town comfort. The Trail Boss special edition combines the capabilities of the Z71 off-road suspension with the addition of more aggressive tires and new appearance enhancements to set the truck apart from other variants.
“The Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition is equally at home blazing an urban trail or following one to a favorite remote campground,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. “It gives owners the gear-carrying ability and versatility they need to venture off-road, with segment-leading efficiency and capability.”
The tires handling the newfound off-road capabilities are Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 265/65R17 all-terrain rubber, wrapped around stylish new 17-inch dark argent metallic painted cast-aluminum wheels. The bed of the truck benefits from the versatile GearOn moveable cargo tie-down rings, a load bar and cargo divider to keep things organized, while black fender flares and Chevrolet bowties round out the handsome styling features of the Trail Boss.
Additional features gracing the Trail Boss include:
- G80 automatic locking rear differential
- Transfer case shield (on 4WD)
- Front recovery hooks
- Black, three-inch round rocker steps
- Spray-on bedliner
- Projector beam headlamps
- Front fog lamps
- All-weather floor mats with Z71 logo
Availability for the Colorado Trail Boss edition commences this Spring with a starting price of $28,505 plus a package price of $3,320. The Trail Boss should tide us over until our off-road wishes are really granted and a 2.8-liter diesel-powered Colorado ZR2 comes to life, as seen at the 2014 Los Angels Auto Show. Until then, The Trail Boss is most definitely a looker with credentials to back up its off-road proficiency.
