It’s very likely that, by this time, you’ve already seen the 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71 Midnight Edition. But what you might not have seen are real-world photos of Chevy’s blacked-out midsize pickup truck. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with these live pics of this black 2016 Colorado Midnight straight from the floor of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
The truck looks menacing, sinister, villanous… in one word, awesome. Enjoy!

Sweet looking. Too bad pickup trucks are so expensive. I miss the days when trucks were less expensive than cars because they were stripped down and for work. Now these trucks have all the luxury items that drive the price up. When looking online the Colorado costs just as much as the Silverado. Pretty sure this Blackout edition is around 40k.
Enough with my rant. I think this is a hot looking truck and would love to own one as my second vehicle.
you can buy the gmc canyon with 4 doors,4×4 and leather for around $35,000 at Spence gmc in thomasville,ga. I just bougt a loaded gmc sle 4 door 4×4 for under $40000.David Cash [email protected]
You can get the Colorado Midnight LT with leather as well I just found that out today
Wish they used the Canyon interior in the Colorado.
I was seriously anticipating the arrival of the XCanyon/Colorado. When they arrived 2 things disappoint me and keep me from purchasing one. The first is the limited rear seat leg room. Secondly is the front air dam. That sucker sure limits the approach angle. When GM adds enough rear seat leg room to match Honda’s Ridgeline and removes the front air dam so that you don’t rip it off the truck in your first off road foray, I will keep my trusty and roomy Ridgeline.
1. Legroom is very much comparable:
The Colorado Crew Cab has (in inches):
45 front and 35.8 rear
The Ridgeline has (also in inches):
40.8 front and 36.4 rear
2. Yes, the airdam is low… but it’s also very much removable. There are just a few pins at the bottom that hold it together. Rip it off if you need steeper approach.
The most unreliable mid size truck you can buy. Numbers don’t lie. The current full size GM also are far more unreliable than the brand new F150 even though they had since 2014 to get it right.
Why don’t you go to fordauthority.com and post a first ever comment on the site about how reliable the Ranger is. Oh wait….
A ford ranger reliable?????
best sarcasm ever you’re a 10
i had a ranger worst mistake i ever made
and they sold oodles of them how they kept the truth from coming out (a mystery)
How about building a regular cab Colorado? Many of us don’t need or want such a large interior.
Midnight edition is supposed to ‘black everything out’ and remove chrome. Who forgot about the fog-lights?
Very good point. I was wondering the same thing.
It’s UGLY…………….Where is the HX??????? GM stupid or something?????????
While I love the styling & creature comforts of the Colorado/Canyon, it DESPERATELY needs a V-8 to be a serious 4X4. The V-6 is ok for the street but even when pulling or hauling something, it lacks a ‘kick in the pants’. The 4.8l V-8 would be decent in this vehicle but for a serious OFF-ROAD 4X4, the 5.3l would be a monster in this truck. One other alternative would be for a ‘performance’ edition to be offered, with perhaps a turbo for the 3.6l V-6. Love the truck, it just needs a BIGGER kick in the pants.
The tranny’s a piece of shit (the six rpeed) it cold not take the turbo torque, and also questionning it on the diesel application.
I see what you’re saying but Jeeps have the 3.6L V6 and perform off road just fine right off the factory floor. My guess is most people that get a $40k Colorado won’t be doing a lot of off roading anyway so really it just needs to plow through snow, ice and muddy roads in 4H. On those occasions when they do hit some trails it will perform satisfactorily for their needs. I agree the V6 is slightly underpowered, but like the JK(U) it’s a known trade off for those who don’t want a full sized rig.
