2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Not Great Trim for a Truck
May 13, 2015
I like our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado quite a bit. It's a versatile size, performs well and remains comfortable on long trips. But there are a few minor things I would change about the interior ...
...notably the shiny plastic trim show here. I guess it might be called fake carbon fiber, if it actually looked like carbon fiber. Instead, it's just shiny hard plastic that doesn't look particularly durable. And fragile-looking stuff in a pickup truck isn't good.
Would flat gray plastic be any better? Probably not, but I'm sure designers could come up with a finish that would look tough and have some aesthetic value. Our new F-150 also suffers from this same sort of design overkill, so it's not just a Chevy problem.
