The Redefining Return of the Chevy Colorado Pick-Up

The Chevrolet Colorado celebrated its four-year anniversary since returning to the Chevy vehicle lineup in November 2018.

Since 2014, the U.S. market has purchased close to 429,000 units of the midsize truck. In celebration of this monumental achievement, Chevrolet has announced the release of two special editions for the coming year; the off-road Z71 Trail Runner and the street-focused RST (Rally Sport Truck).

These Chevy Colorado special edition trucks celebrate multifaceted lifestyles and boast options to match consumer interests, whether it’s on a trail forged by man, or the street.

With multiple powertrain options, an EPA-estimated 27 mpg HWY, and an astounding towing capacity of 7,000 pounds, and innovative technologies, the midsize truck has something for every walk of life.

Chevy Colorado Z71 Trail Runner

For the first of the two special editions, the Z71 Trail Runner starts with Chevy’s Z71 off-road package but then incorporates the underbody protection of the Colorado Z72. This trim level now offers additional off-road protection and capabilities for the truck, which are ideal for those who take a road that’s less-traveled.

Additional features include stamped aluminum front and mid skid plates, functional rocker protection, and 17-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires. The traditional returned suspension and locking rear differential of the Z71 will still be featured while the chrome bowtie grille is replaced by the Z72 Bison blacked-out grille.

With this edition, the Colorado’s lineup now offers consumers four distinct levels of off-road capabilities. The Colorado Z71, Colorado ZR2 Bison, and Colorado ZR2 are the other three levels.

Chevy Colorado RST

For the Colorado RST, it’s a midsize truck with an updated look that many search for. The appearance of this trim is similar to what is found on the Tahoe, Suburban, and Silverado models. Available on the LT trim of the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado, the RST incorporates a monochromatic exterior offset by a black beltline and body side molding.

It is also adorned with black RST badges, a black bowtie on the tailgate, and 20-inch wheels with a low-gloss black finish. This special edition is also the first Colorado to offer wheels of that stature.

The Bison Grille

Both of the Chevy Colorado special edition trucks will incorporate the blacked-out bowtie grille insert, which has been aptly named the Bison grille due to its appearance on the ZR2 Bison. Since the grille has grown in popularity, the manufacturer has made it available as an aftermarket accessory for current-generation Colorado truck.

The Most Successful Truck Company

It’s also worth noting that the Colorado has helped to ensure GM was the most successful midsize truck manufacturer for four consecutive years with the sale of more pickup trucks than their competition from 2013 through the first three quarters of 2018.

These models are expected to hit our market in early 2019, until then DePaula Chevrolet is proud to offer the Chevy car or truck to fit your lifestyle.
