GM Announces Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss4
General Motors has announced various new model variants and package offerings as part of Chevrolet‘s recent Fourth of July celebration in Thailand. In recognition of the Bow Tie brand’s heritage and American Spirit, GM Thailand is adding a new Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss model variant to the lineup.
The new Colorado Trail Boss will slot in as a permanent addition to the international Colorado lineup. The new offroad-oriented midsize pickup draws motivation from the 2.5L Duramax turbodiesel XLD25 inline four-cylinder engine, and adds a variety of exterior design upgrades.
These include a brand-new fascia treatment with black Bow Tie badging and a black grille, which combine to add extra visual punch to the front end. In the corners, 18-inch sport alloy wheels are wrapped in grippy tires and come mounted underneath flat-black wheel arch extensions.
Th bed gets a thick sport bar that runs from the roof to the sides of the box.
Final details include a huge black Colorado decal on the tailgate, as well as the requisite Trail Boss badging.
“Trail Boss captures the tough, durable and pioneering spirit of Colorado and is sure to inspire outdoor adventures and enable owners to Challenge their Power,” Chevrolet Thailand exclaims in a press release.
Pricing for the new Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss starts at 859,000 Baht ($27,817 at current exchange rates, 7/17/2019). Meanwhile, the standard Colorado C-Cab is priced at 699,000 Baht ($22,637), placing the Trail Boss model at a 160,000-Baht ($5,181) premium.
It’s worth noting that the vehicle in question is the international-market Colorado, which is assembled at the GM Rayong plant in Thailand. The model is sold as the Chevrolet S10 in Brazil and other Latin American markets. The international-market Colorado is similar but quite different from the Colorado pickup sold in North America.
To note, Chevy previously offered a Colorado Trail Boss in the United States for the 2016 model year. However, it was discontinued when the Colorado ZR2 was launched. Meanwhile, the international-market Colorado isn not available as a ZR2 model.

Looks good, could use more HP not a little diesel ? Someday GM will listen to long time loyal customers ?
Awesome! The world needs more diesel! I have buddy’s who still regret selling their TDI… We sold them back almost 3 years ago. That car doesn’t have a ton of HP, but pulled like a freight train (probably what you would want off-road). Plus it got ridiculous mileage! (50+ miles per gallon at 80/ 700 miles per tank). It’s a shame VW thinks they need to apologize for such a great vehicle.
Might note Chevy has offered a special edition much like this every year. One year was Trail Boss but the colors and name change to Midnight, Trail Runner , Dusk , RST, Red Line.
The sports bar is an option on any truck as is the V6 and Diesel.
The only thing we never got was the rear decal that would get scuffed up if you work the truck.
The Trail Runner is still available now as is the Dusk.
The Canyon would also get a special All Terrain package too in limited colors.
Did they have an accident & have to locate a tail gate from a scrap yard? Personally I think that black tail gate looks tacky. Just sayin’.
