DETROIT — The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Midnight Edition and Z71 Trail Boss, two special-edition trucks designed to help truck buyers give their vehicle a custom look and feel, will arrive at Chevrolet dealerships this fall, GM said Monday.
"The Midnight Edition evokes the aesthetic of an urban tuner vehicle, while the Z71 Trail Boss is designed for terrain where the pavement ends," said the Detroit automaker in a statement.
Pricing on both trucks will be announced later.
The Colorado Midnight Edition, which is offered exclusively in black, takes its monochromatic design cues from the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Midnight Edition.
Details include extensive blacked-out exterior trim, including the grille, bowtie emblem and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Midnight Edition also features a spray-on bedliner and a soft, folding tonneau cover in black.
It is available on LT models with extended and crew-cab bodies in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive and with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6 engines. It will also be available with the recently announced 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel engine.
The Colorado Z71 Trail Boss adds to the Colorado Z71's off-road truck suspension package with more aggressive tires and off-road-inspired appearance enhancements.
A key feature is an all-new sport bar located behind the cab with LED trail lighting and flying buttress-like panels.
Other details include black-finished 17-inch aluminum wheels with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTec 265/65R17 all-terrain tires, bold fender flares, tubular assist steps, a spray-on bedliner, all-weather floor mats and a black bowtie grille emblem.
The Colorado Z71 Trail Boss is available on Z71 models with the extended and crew-cab bodies and in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. It will be available with the same engines as the Midnight Edition.
Edmunds says: They're no GMC Syclone or oh-so-1990s Chevy S-10 Xtreme, but these special edition trucks add some style and character to the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado.
