2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Gussies Up With More Off-Road Gear3
Chevrolet originally announced the 2015 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss at the 2015 Cleveland Auto Show, but the bowtie brand has already added in a few new features for the 2016 model year to make the Trail Boss even more identifiable.
Out on the trail, fellow off-roaders may seek the 2016 Colorado Trail Boss out with the addition of a sport bar with LED trail lighting. New 17-inch aluminum wheels sit as the base for the aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec 265/65R17 all-terrain tires, coupled with the off-road abilities already found in the Z71 package.
Larger fender flares give the truck an even more aggressive stance, allowing for the truck to stay tough when the going gets rough. Other cosmetic additions include the black bowtie emblem and spray-on bedliner. Chevrolet was even courteous on the inside, throwing in a set of all-weather floormats from the factory. Because it sounds like things are going to get messy with the 2016 Colorado Trail Boss.
The Z71 Trail Boss add-ons may be applied to extended and crew cab bodies, in both two-wheel and four-wheel drive. And, the moment you’ve been waiting for, the 2016 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss will be available with 2.8-liter Duramax diesel power.

Light bar looks to be sitting a little low? I still find it really hard to swallow that all manufactuers call “all weather floormats” as some sort of special feature on trucks, especially when they usually don’t cover the entire footwell areas…and, by the nature of trucks, those shouldn’t be “value added” so much as they are (for better or worse) on cars.
I know I am in the minority, but the cladding on the 2002-06 Avalanche was the ultimate offroading feature. (I had a 2003 and 2004 Z71)
Not worrying about scratches on the lower 1/3 of the doors, or the front end when off in the bush, was practical and useful. Needed a lightbar option from GM on those, but cladding was an option after 2004, and gone after 2007.
Great trucks, highly underrated for their usefulness and utility.
I’m glad this sort of truck is available. After losing options like the FJ Cruiser, every vehicle that fits into this category is welcomed by outdoor sports/recreation enthusiasts.
Where can I buy the bed sport bar that has colorado cut out in it can’t find it anywhere
