2015 Chevrolet Colorado Is Selling Faster Than Ford F-15040
Well, that’s some good news for Chevrolet. Dealers can’t keep the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado on their lots very long, and that isn’t a bad problem to have.
According to the latest data compiled by Pickup Trucks, the average time a 2015 Colorado crew cab is sitting on the lot before finding a new home is only 14 days. In comparison, a new Ford F-150 crew cab takes 18 days to find a new home. The Chevrolet Colorado extended cab is only two days behind the F-150 crew cab at 20 days, but is tied with the F-150 extended cab, which also takes 20 days.
Chevrolet is still trying to keep up with the demand for its new midsize truck, and with a steadier flow of inventory, more Colorados should be finding their way to dealers. Many we speak to say they don’t see all that many at dealers, and if there are some, they’re in very small numbers still.
Chevrolet is also taking a unique approach to the 2015 Colorado with an abundance of accessory and special edition packages including the Colorado GearOn and Colorado Trail Boss edition. The brand hopes this inspires buyers to purchase the already loaded vehicle, rather than ticking specific options, though, many of the accessories can be had for any Colorado.
Chevrolet has said it wasn’t only planning on targeting truck buyers with the 2015 Colorado, and in terms of sales, it looks like it’s working for them. As time moves forward, we’ll have an even clearer picture.

At last, I am buying a midsize truck!
It is time to trade in the Tahoe, which has served the fam quite well aside from the standard GM trademark electronic gremlins, just passed 120k miles and bracing for the inevitable more serious problems that can leave people stranded. I will write a check for a USA built 4×4 midsize truck with a manual transmission that can go offroad without losing an airdam. GM is not building one like that for me so it’ll be a competitor with an old design that is incredibly reliable. Fuel mileage isn’t great but then my family hasn’t had to pay for gas in a few years thanks to the wife’s employer.
The fools are flocking to the GM twins right now as the above article suggests, so the price of the competitor came down. I look forward again to years of trouble free driving while Colorado and Canyon owners will go back to the stealerships again and again for recalls and problems, only some of which will be fixed.
Not to worry, I will continue posting here as long as the criminal enterprise known as GM has our tax money and keeps building inferior products.
You’re a joke!!
Longest worthless post I’ve read in a while. What are you talking about
AND YOU ARE A BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!
So much fail in one post lol
This has to be intentional to see how many down votes he can get. No one can be this stupid and use a computer
The fool is you! You sound like a bad case of diarrhea.
I had ordered and receive my Colorado and am very pleased with it. You couldn’t find a better truck for the price.
My neighbor just bought a colorado and it already has something rattling I have a 2009 lariat crew cab no comparison for comfort and it has 90,000 Miles on ut
No, his statement is pathetic!
He’s just a troll guys! I take his opinion a grain of salt. He sounds like a bitter man that probably owns one of the japs cars. Ricer lovers!
Oh Magoo you’ve done it again and again and again!
He is just bitter that since the surgery, but on the other hand he has not had to lift the toilet seat anymore.
As for the truck lets give it some time to sort out. This has been a good start to a very well done truck but we still have other factors in play.
Fords production is still not full up as to be honest the GM either. They have been mostly focused on only a couple styles and not the full line yet.
I have hopes this will continue but only time and the market will tell.
I am not due for a car yet but right now I will watch the variations they will offer and may be back into a smaller truck in the future as in a Canyon.
The one thing that has hurt Ford too is option prices. While the base prices are low the fact is they hid the cost in the option prices and the Ford can add up fast. With lower profit margins Is suspect that they may have trouble rebating in the future.
Might also note that the full size GM trucks have also been selling well by the numbers. Also many of their models are hard to find on dealer lots right now too. This is critical as it shows that GM is not robbing sales from their own lines.
These are great trucks. They have been out since early 2014 in the Fiji Islands and I drove one with a duramax diesel over there. I still feel the Ford Rangers 5 cylinder 3.2 diesel with 6 speed is a nicer powerplant but the Chevy is a nice size truck. I really hope this bites Ford in the arse for making the decision to not sell the Ranger in the States. I want Ford to pay a big price for their refusal to offer the Ranger in the states. This Colorado will succeed being its in a new class of trucks that offer almost full size features in a bit more manageable size. Ford has been killing sales in the overseas market in this new midsize category and is stupid to not think it could do the same in the states. I’m patiently waiting for Chevy to offer the duramax in the states and I may consider trading one of my vehicles for that. Next year Toyota will offer their new Tacoma and after that, Ford will feel the squeeze from the mid size trucks.
Sounds like another Tacoma buyer! Why is he afraid to just come out and say what he’s buying?But we can make a good guess.
Why do people feel the need to talk shit about car manufacturers? “I hope this bites Ford in the arse?” Come on!
While I was raised in a GM family, I enjoy seeing Ford and Chrysler succeed, too. I’m a Michigan resident and I have seen first hand what a recession can do to an automobile company, the lack of proper management, and quality issues. But you know what? It’s not about the companies, it’s about the people who build the cars, it’s about the surrounding businesses that thrive because of GM, Ford, and Chrysler.
I enjoy seeing them all put out quality vehicles. Magirus, is indeed, an idiot. More jobs are created per vehicle when you buy from a domestic automaker than buying from Honda, Toyota, ect.
Magirus, why do you feel the need to attack folks who decide to take their hard earned AMERICAN dollars and spend it on an AMERICAN company? Why don’t you go attack people because they rather have a white house over a blue house. My god, shut the fuck up.
Well I have every right to be upset with Ford for not offering the Ranger in the US. Don’t think I knocked them too much being I paid over 40K for my Ranger in Fiji. And I am one American that knows damn well what a hell of a truck it really is. Plenty of others express that on fordsocial.com Yes I want the Colorado to sell gangbusters. Only because that’s the only way Ford may offer me what I really want. But as long as the F150 sells well they won’t cannibalize it with the Ranger.
So if the only way for Ford to change their minds is to fall on their Arse then so be it. I just want to buy a Ranger in the States. But I’ll probably end up paying 40K for a duramax Colorado when Chevy offers it in the states. IMO, the diesel Colorado is going to be a hot cake for Chevy.
“The ‘brand’ hopes this inspires buyers”. What exactly is Chevrolet now? Is it a brand, a motor division or a real car company? Because that’s what their ads say now, they’re a Car Company, not merely a brand. Chevrolet really needs to clear this up to the public. That said, if this truck had the cabin materials of higher trim F-150’s available, or even the cabin trim materials of the Canyon, I would already own one. I think it’s the best looking truck on the road. Best looking truck from Chevrolet in a long time. Perfect size too like the 90’s Silverado’s were. They just need to step up the interiors in 2015 here.
Yep bought one Yesterday evening.. 2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 Cyber Graphite.
I took ownership of one March 31st and drove it down to Hampton, VA from Northern Virginia. I liked everything about it. I had to be very careful as it is “spiffy” truck for a Lady !!!
I recommend it to any one who would like to own a nice “little red truck” like mine.
Just got back from going over an F150 Platinum. Nice truck but few strange quirks.
– $68,000 Canadian and no tailgate step
– you have to select the surround view camera every time you park and takes a minute or two to come up whereas GM’s front park assist automatically shows in your DIC every time.
– rear fender well supports are plastic compared to GM’s metal
– Floor shift knob is HUGE and women there had trouble even gripping it.
– SYNC is still as cumbersome and still has no voice pass through or voice media commands
– front tow hooks are an inch from the bottom of the bumper and we couldn’t even get a tow strap hook hooked onto them.
– Rear seat step in height is still very high with their raised rear floor (flat load floor)
– They finally admitted the GM rear suspension was a better design and went to the off-set shocks like GM has had for years.
– To reach a drink in the rear door holder, you have to contort by reaching down and back under the seat since the holder is located right at bottom of panel and halfway back on the door.
– front console drink holders couldn’t fit a regular water container
– Rear tailgate assist is a shock which was very slow at dropping in sub-zero temps
– files kept falling out of the file holders in the console as the hangers are a 1/8″ too wide apart
– The 2 USB ports at the front of the console are so close together that 2 USB sticks were wedged together and stuck in at awkward angles
– Still use the pointless tailgate step that can’t be used with anything in the box that overhangs the tailgate (lumber, snowmobile, etc)
– road test showed that in the ecoboosts, the turbo was on 85% of the time when cruise was set at 100km/hr, which really set fuel economy on a downhill spiral. The 5.3L used 4.0L/100km less fuel on a 40 km trip when compared to the 3.5EB and 2L/100kms less than the 2.7EB
– full load F150 can run over $82,000 Canadian
– still bolt on their box tie downs
– bodyshops require a clean room to work on them since any metal filings on the aluminum will cause corrosion. Ford is encouraging dealers to spend the $56000 USD just for the specialty tools PLUS the cost of the clean room so they can repair them. Any damage to the cab structure will be a complete cab replacement due to costs of replacing pieces.
– offer rear heated seats
– offer full roof sunroof
– offer auto dimming headlamps
– offer remote tailgate release
– offer power running boards
– LED lighting on anything above Lariat
– Now use 77% high strength steel in frame (GM uses 81%)
Point of this is for Magirus…….. GM designers aren’t as stupid as you make them out to be.
women say the same about my knob
The guy in the first post is actually spot on. I was stupid and traded in my tacoma for the Colorado on the superbowl commercial. So far, nothing but issues…and all issues that GM is saying, “we are working on it”
It’s garbage. I’m hoping to dump this thing while they are still popular and get into something else.
Trust me…I own one and have to carry around both keys because if one won’t start it, the other might. Yeah, GM said the engineers are hard at work on it. That was months ago. It leaks water, horrible steering wheel rattle, wipers don’t work right, and tranny is so hesitant, I thought something was wrong with the engine. Nope, it’s just how they get the good mpg’s.
See for yourself. Google all the service bulletins out on the truck right now. It’s a joke.
I own a 2015 GMC Canyon with the V6, auto trans and extended cab/short bed. I’ve logged 10k trouble-free miles and I love the truck. I will admit, however, that the transmission spends time “searching” for the right gear at certain speeds and this can be very irritating. I’ve become somewhat used to it, but I still dislike it and find it distracting and very unnerving at times when I need that quick down-shift for passing. I wish there was more discussion of this trans issue because I know many owners of the Canyon and the Colorado are having the same problem.
My malibu does the same. It’s super annoying, but I’ve just gotten used to driving like a granny so I don’t have to deal with it.
I believe it has something to do with the gearing. It’s not the transmission itself.
