Colorado Rolls Out TrailBoss Edition

Updated Mar 11, 2015

GM is offering up a number of special edition packages to attract new buyers to the midsize Colorado and Canyon pickups.

The latest, Chevy’s 2015 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss, combines the capability of Chevrolet’s Z71 off-road truck suspension package with more aggressive tires and additional appearance enhancements.

It is offered in extended and crew cab configurations, with a choice of a long or short cargo bed and available 4WD.

The Trail Boss goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $28,505 plus the package price of $3,320.

“(Trail Boss) gives owners the gear-carrying ability and versatility they need to venture off-road, with segment-leading efficiency and capability,” says Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager.

In addition to Chevy’s off-road truck suspension package, the Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition features Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 265/65R17 all-terrain tires and 17-inch dark argent metallic painted cast-aluminum wheels; GearOn moveable cargo tie-down rings, load bar and cargo divider; with black fender flares and front and rear black Chevy bowtie logos.

Additional features include:

  • G80 automatic locking rear differential
  • Transfer case shield (on 4WD)
  • Front recovery hooks
  • Black, three-inch round rocker steps
  • Spray-on bedliner
  • Projector beam headlamps
  • Front fog lamps
  • All-weather floor mats with Z71 logo.

The Trail Boss is the second Colorado special edition announced recently.

Last month, Chevrolet introduced the 2015 Colorado GearOn Special Edition, which blends the capability of the midsize pickup truck with the versatility of the GearOn accessory system – and additional popular features. It also goes on sale this spring.
