No pricing released yet, just speculation.

I would expect pricing info to become available this summer.

calicanyonguy,


Hello! Your fellow forum member is correct. At this time, pricing for the 2015 Colorado has not been announced. You may want to visit Chevrolet Cars, Trucks, SUVs, Crossovers and Vans in the next couple months to see if they have updated the pricing.

My guess is it won't be too far off from the current price, at most my guess is it will be no more than $500-1000 of the current price

Define "current price", considering there is no "current" Colorado......

I live across the street from the Wentzville assembly plant and my friends work there and said it will max out sticker z71 at $35,000 and some change...seems too much to me for what you are getting =(

i heard it would be on par or close to the Taco (tacoma) so i looked at the local taco dealership they had an MSRP of $30-33k so ihunter1130's assumptions of a fully loaded Z71 at $35,000 sound correct. and the diesel in 2016 might even tack on a few bucks more.

For a loaded crew cab, those numbers wouldn't surprise me.

For what you're getting? What do you mean? For one of the first gens, sure....but the interior in the new Colorado is much improved and should be best in class by far. It's also a bigger truck than the first gen. I'm not sure what else you want

Have you looked at the price of a full size recently? An LTZ Z71 Silverado starts at nearly 43 according to Chevy's website. Load it up and I bet you can nearly hit 50.

well i looked up a brand new silverado.LTZ Z71 is msrp of $46k and the top end High Country starting msrp is $49,975 and change....
mind you this is MSRP you can always get a better deal and most of these options are overpriced.

I remember when my 99 silverado was new and they though that $20,000+ was outragous back then
ha ha ha ha ha.. haaaaa..... um excuse me but there seems to be a pain in my rear where my wallet is

I will NOT be getting one if they run $35K.

In 2004 I got my ZQ8 CC for right at $20K after rebates/GM points/ ITD Certificate.

Just for fun, I went and used the "build your own" program on Toyota's home page and built up a fancy Tacoma, lots of options and off road goodies, V-6, etc, and got it up to $37k without trying too awful hard. I think if you went really nuts with the options and accessories you could bump right up against $40k. And there's a Ford f150 Limited at my local dealership right now that tops $55k. It would look real nice parked between my Ferrari and Rolls Royce.

If I can get a reasonably well equipped Colorado LT 4X4 extended cab for $27-30k, I would not be unhappy. (especially if it's closer to the 27)

I've heard good reviews about tacomas and bad ones. My last 2 vehicles have been gm's, Including the canyon i have now. I drove a 2000 Buick century for almost 9 years, and i abused the crap outta that car. Never changed transmission fluid, i changed the oil only a few times, 1 tuneup. It had a crack in the intake manifold. I highly recommend leakstop because that's what kept me running for those 9 years. I like the canyon i have now and am intent on seeing how long a gm vehicle will last when you take good care of it.

I disagree...for a fully loaded feature rich truck (touchscreen, nav, leather, lane departure warning, rear camera, bluetooth, optional stereo, crew cab, 4 wheel drive, HID lights, premium wheels....on and on)....$35 isn't bad. Is that too much for some people....of course.

A full size with all of that will sticker out to mid 40s. (of course rebates will bring that down, but thats not really a fair comparison...you'd have to see what rebates might be out for the midsizer as well)

If you want the stripper model, they will likely start in the 21 - 23K range. Lots of options between that and the top of the line, so take your pick.

If the GMC tops out at 35 I'll be surprised, as that truck is going to have features not available in the Chevy. The Chevy will be the slighly cheaper option in my opinion.

Based on what I think I understand, I agree the Chevy will be less expensive than GMC. CHEAP is in the eye of the beholder.

One of the unanswered questions will be how you can outfit these trucks. Issue I have always had with regards to imports was they did not allow you to pick & choose your options. Case in point, in 1992 my wife & I were in market for a Honda Accord. We wanted leather seats, but the only way to get leather seats was to upgrade to the EX model. With the EX model, you got the sunroof. The sunroof lowered the inside roof height by a couple of inches and left my head hitting the roof. We were stuck with the DX model and cloth seats.

I have purchased new 6 domestic vehicles. It took me 3 months to find one of them on a lot with the desired equipment. I special ordered three of the other vehicles so I could cherry pick the options I wanted and save a few bucks. Granted, even the domestics typically put together packages now that limit the ability to do this and save any money. From your option list, I probably wouldn't want to pay for Navigation, HID lights, or premium wheels. Can I order a truck that gives me what I want and save a few bucks?

I know we will have the answers in due time.

In 2009 I ordered my brand new 2010 Camaro without leather and sunroof but with the upgraded steering wheel and shifter leather, bluetooth/USB, and optional stereo...just how I'd of prefered it. So hopefully that will still apply on this truck.

I think it might. I say that because if you hunt through some photos of the 2015 Colorado launch event, there was a black extended cab there that was not Z71 (did not have Z71 wheels, black grille, or black window molding), but it was 4x4 and had the HID headlamps. Now if you look at the Chevy webpage for the Colorado, they only show the HID lamps on the Z71, but if the above truck is something that could be built then I'd say there will be a fairly good list of options. I was very happy to see that truck b/c aside from the HID lamps with the cool LED glow, I dislike the rest of the Z71 look. I for one, want the brighter rims, chrome grille, and chrome window molding.

That truck also had running boards which I thought made the truck look even better.

EDIT: I just decided to find a picture of that truck and here it is: OK...not sure if it is a 4x4...but in the past you didn't have to have the Z71 to get a 4x4 so I assume thats the case for these trucks?

Thanks for the picture KMP.

I am not sure I ever saw that picture. What I find interesting is the black molding around the wheel wells. I like that on a truck versus full painted fenders.

One of the dumbest things I have seen is the odd-road Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model with painted fenders. In white, it looks like a dang postal delivery vehicle.

Your list of pick & choose options would make the customization of this truck much more desirable. I think the range of potential customers for this truck are from off-roaders, city slickers, stripped down delivery trucks, former SUV owners who want major creature comforts and those who just don't need a full size truck.

When I go on a dealer lot today and look at vehicles, it seems like the dealers buy a lot of vehicles equipped similarly, just different colors. They don't equip them differently to appeal to a broader range of customers. Go down the street to the next dealer selling the same vehicles, his buyer may have selected a different set of options, but again all of the vehicles have that set of options. Can't decide if the buyers have no creativity when ordering, if they are clueless as to their customers, or maybe they are a former Honda or Toyota buyer where the manufacturer gave them no freedom to equip the cars differently.

Everytime I have ordered a vehicle, the dealer has looked at how I was equipping the vehicle and has only required a small deposit with the statement: "Hmm, that looks like a vehicle that would be easy to sell if you backed out of the deal."
