Chevy Truck News:Chevrolet Introduces Two New Special Editions for the 2016 Colorado

Recommended Posts

After doing a few special edition models for the Silverado, Chevrolet has decided to do some as well for the Colorado.

 

First up is the Colorado Midnight edition. Following in the footsteps of the larger Silverado Midnight edition, the Colorado Midnight boasts a grille, bowtie, and 18-inch wheels draped in black. Other changes for the Midnight include spray-in bedliner, tonneau cover, and unique sill plates. This special edition won't be limited to one cab and engine configuration. You'll be able to get this package on any cab configuration, along with engine and the choice of either two or four-wheel drive.

 

Next is the Trail Boss which is available on the Z71 trim. The Trail Boss boasts LED trail lighting and aggressive Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec tires to amp up its off-road character. There is also 17-inch wheels, newly flared fenders, side steps, and a spray-in bedliner. Like the Midnight edition, the Trail Boss can be configured with your choice of cab, engine, and drivetrain.

 

"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. As the Colorado continues to win over new customers, the new Midnight Edition and Z71 Trail Boss give them more choices and build on segment-leading capabilities and efficiency," said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager.

 

Both special editions will be arriving at dealers this fall.

I totally dig the midnight edition. But everybody that knows me knows I love blacked out vehicles.. I love that GM/Chevy has been doing that lately. I think the lack of chrome and now body colored panels/pieces cleans the look up a lot.

I would stick with the BFGoodrich All Terrain, far superior tire over the Wrangler.

Agree they are both lovely packages, the TrailBoss edition will be wicked in the Special Green Paint job. I still in the Z71 they need to dump the stupid plastic airdam as it is an offroad truck.

I like the Trail Boss a lot!   I do wish they would have baked and extra inch or 2 ground clearance in though.

Ohhhh that "forest" greet???? That'd be super sharp looking!

 

I agree but I think they know their clientel well enough that they know the customer will just take it off if they don't want it and they ge the benefit of still getting the epa rating.

It's amazing how much different and rugged the truck looks with just the A/T tires.  But yet, from what I've read(I read quite a bit on tires, actually - last job was a service tech changing oil, tires, light builbs, batteries..etc.)  the BFG All-Terrain T/O are about the best you can get for this look AND off road performance. But if it were my truck and I know I won't be doing any serious venturing off-road I'd go with something more like the BFG Rugged Terrain T/A ( http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=Rugged+Terrain+T%2FA ). It still has a good ruged look but it isn't really agessive. I wouldn't want to sacrifice much on-road performance for looks, just not worth it.

I can understand that but the Terrain KO are great, not really noisy and I usually get between 80-100K miles on a set.

Very impressive that you score 80-100k on a set of those. Very Very impressive. What did/do you have them on? See if I were to put a set on a hypothetical truck that I don't own I would be coming from cars/suv where even a small amount of tire noise would be annoying. So, baby steps it is. lol

I'm having visions of an avalanche...

You love those Avalanches don't you..?

 

YOLO! Go get one! ;)

Is that really an option or an aftermarket thing???

 

Also, those wheels look awesome on that green. I've noticed lately I've had a thing for really dark geens on vehicles. Not just trucks or just cars.. Everything.

I hadn't heard of it before (I was dealing with a family medical issue during SEMA last year)... but it was a SEMA concept...

First, I hope all is well with your family, Drew. Second, That's a very clean and awesome concept. I wonder if anybody will make something like that in the aftermarket.

Thanks, all is fine now.    I doubt anyone would make an aftermarket version.  It would require an all new bed box.

i think they should build it.  At least we know a 3rd gen avalanche would have looked pretty darned good.

Lets not forget that as a Chevy Avalache and an Escalade EXT they would have sold another 50K units or so if memory serves me right.

I have these tires on my 1994 Suburban, 1998 Dakota, 1999 Durango currently, they rock and keep on going. I have on my 2008 Trailblazer SS AWD the Bridgestone Duelers as well as on my 2006 Escalade ESV since these are low profile. Both tires rock for trucks and suvs, but I do like the look of the BF Goodrich tire best.
