2016 Chevrolet Colorado MidnightEdition TrailBoss 064 trucks pasmag

Chevrolet is set to push two special editions of its hot-selling Colorado pickup into North American dealerships this fall for customers looking to make a visual statement with their trucks.

Evoking the aesthetic of an urban tuner vehicle, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Midnight Edition plays up the imposing stance and design theme introduced on the popular Silverado Midnight Edition (left) with blacked-out bowtie emblems, grille and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Other exclusive feature include a spray-on bedliner and soft, folding tonneau cover. The 2016 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss (right and bottom) edition builds on the capability of Chevrolet’s Z71 off-road truck suspension package with more aggressive tires and off-road-inspired appearance enhancements. An all-new sport bar with LED trail lighting, black-finished 17-inch aluminum wheels matched with aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec 265/65R17 all-terrain tires, bold fender flares and tubular assist steps are also key identifiers.

“These are aggressive editions of one of the country’s hottest-selling truck, demonstrating the personalization that’s possible with Chevrolet accessories, whether it’s for the street, trail or both,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager.

Both the Midnight Edition and Z71 Trail Boss packages are available with extended and crew cab bodies, in two-wheel- or four-wheeldrive, with a choice of either the 2.5L or 3.6L gas engine, or the all-new 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel. Pricing to come.
