More than just an appearance package, the 2015 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss is a comprehensive off road update to the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Chevrolet took the off road Z71 package already available on the current Chevrolet Colorado, including the suspension package, and improved it.
On top of the “Trail Boss” badging, the 2015 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss has a G80 automatic locking rear differential, Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 265/65R17 all-terrain tires with 17-inch dark argent metallic painted cast-aluminum wheels, transfer case shield (on the 4WD), GearOn™ moveable cargo tie-down rings, load bar with cargo divider, black fender flares, front recovery hooks, spray-on bedliner, projector beam headlamps on top of front fog lamps and black three-inch rocker steps.
Availble this spring, the 2015 Colorado Z71 Trail Boss package price is $3,320. That’s on top of the starting price of $28,505. That means, it will not be available in a base truck configuration.
“The Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition is equally at home blazing an urban trail or following one to a favorite remote campground,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. “It gives owners the gear-carrying ability and versatility they need to venture off-road, with segment-leading efficiency and capability.”
This upgrade seems to (partially) address the beastly Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Concept that had fans begging GM to build. The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Trail Boss Edition certainly does have a few interesting additions. It may sooth a few off road enthusiast’s souls.
