2015 Chevrolet Colorado Does More

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

 

Elizabeth City – The numbers speak for themselves. The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado midsize truck, available at Performance Chevrolet delivers the most horsepower and best highway efficiency of any midsize truck as well as the highest available trailering rating and higher payload ratings than the competition. That means Colorado owners can haul and tow more while using less fuel than Toyota Tacoma or the Nissan Frontier.

“The all-new Chevy Colorado answers the call for customers who have big lifestyle interests or work needs, but want to exercise them in a smaller, more efficient way,” said Tony Johnson, Colorado marketing manager. “From the first spark plug to the trailer hitch, the Colorado was designed to enable truck capabilities without the sacrifices to which midsize truck customers had become accustomed.”

Colorado features a standard 2.5L I-4 engine. It is SAE-certified at 200 horsepower (149 kW) and 191 lb-ft of torque (259 Nm), and delivers an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway (2WD automatic).

A 3.6L V-6 certified at 305 horsepower (227 kW) and 269 lb-ft of torque (365 Nm) is available with an EPA-estimated 26 mpg on the highway (2WD).

Compared to its midsize competitors, Colorado’s 2.5L engine generates 31 percent more horsepower and 11 percent more torque than Nissan Frontier’s I-4 (152 hp/171 lb-ft). It delivers that power advantage with 17 percent greater highway efficiency than the Nissan’s 23 mpg (2WD automatic models compared).

Colorado’s 2.5L also makes 25 percent more horsepower and 6 percent more torque than Toyota Tacoma’s I-4 (159 hp/180 lb-ft) – with 12.5 percent greater highway efficiency than Toyota’s 24 mpg (2WD automatic models compared).

When it comes to Colorado’s 3.6L V-6, it produces 16 percent more horsepower than the Frontier’s V-6 (262 hp/281 lb-ft), while delivering 18 percent greater efficiency than its EPA-estimated 22 mpg highway. It also produces 29 percent more horsepower than Tacoma’s V-6 (236 hp/266 lb-ft) and nearly 24 percent greater highway efficiency (21 mpg).

The Colorado V-6’s 305 horses and 269 lb-ft of torque exceed the 3.5L V-6 offered in the larger, full-size 2015 Ford F-150. It’s rated at 283 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.

“We are proud to offer the new Colorado to Elizabeth City residents because it is built with the DNA of a true Chevy truck,” said  Trey Colbert of Performance Chevrolet. “The Colorado gives our customers the capability, strength and confidence that comes with owning one of the larger models.”

The Colorado’s available class-leading horsepower allows effortless performance on the highway, even when hauling or trailering. Its torque advantage – the engine’s pulling power – contributes to a more confident feeling of power on demand at lower speeds and when starting off with a trailer.

Colorado’s maximum payload ratings for four-cylinder- and V-6-equipped models – 1,460 pounds and 1,590 pounds, respectively – are greater than Frontier (971/1,524 pounds) and Tacoma (1,440/1,500 pounds).

With the available 3.6L V-6 engine and available trailering package, Colorado offers a maximum trailering rating of 7,000 pounds, which tops the max 6,500-pound ratings for the Frontier and Tacoma,  per SAE J2807 recommended practices.

Colorado’s segment-highest trailering rating tops the 6,800-pound rating for the full-size Toyota Tundra equipped with the 4.6L V-8.

“Colorado combines greater capability and efficiency than any midsize competitive truck, and delivers maneuverability and garagability to make it the smart choice for customers,” said Johnson.

GM Gives Back To Teachers With New Educator Discount Program

Elizabeth City, NC – Beginning today through Jan. 2, 2015, current employees of Elizabeth City-area public or private school, university or college are eligible to participate in the new GM Educator Discount program at Performance Chevrolet and receive a significant discount on the purchase or lease of a new 2015 or 2014 Chevrolet vehicle.

“The work of teachers and other school employees is often taken for granted or vastly underappreciated,” said Trey Colbert of Performance Chevrolet. “Although it’s a small token of our immense gratitude for these hard-working pillars of our community, we’re happy to extend the GM Educator Discount program as one way of saying thanks.”

All 2015 and 2014 models are eligible except the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Spark EV. Eligible participants may use the discount on up to two vehicles, and the discount can be extended to spouses and dependent children.

Teachers employed by state or municipal governments may be subject to restrictions limiting their ability to participate in the program and the offer is void unless permitted by state and municipal laws, regulations, rules, ordinances, policies, codes of conduct and other directives or standards regarding ethics and gift acceptance by state and municipal employees. Those accepting this offer verify that it complies with all restrictions regarding ethics and applicable gift acceptance.

The Educator Discount is one part of GM’s widespread support for educators and education across the United States. GM is also currently supporting the National Education Association’s 2014 NEA Expo taking place through Wednesday at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
