Exterior Features

A number of outstanding exterior features help separate the 2015 Chevy Colorado from the rest of the pack. All season tires equipped with rugged alloy wheels look incredible and helps give drivers better control in virtually any weather condition. Stunning bumpers with a painted finish and privacy glass installed throughout the vehicle further gives the Colorado aesthetic appeal.

The first thing many will notice about the GMC Canyon is a chrome grill surrounding the truck. Drivers will also enjoy a very large truck bed with the option to have a spray-in liner applied. A CornerStep on the rear of the vehicle makes loading or unloading cargo easier as well.


In the interior of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, the first thing many will notice is the 8-inch MyLink color touch-screen that gives drivers direct access to smartphone apps, Bluetooth, preset text messages, Pandora radio and more. Thanks to special features like triple-sealed doors and thick windows, cabin noise is drastically reduced, providing for a quiet, comfortable ride on the roughest terrain. Drivers will appreciate the option of having either leather or cloth seats that provide both front seats with plenty of leg room.

Electric power steering comes standard with the GMC Canyon along with a large center console that provides plenty of space for easy storage. Another interesting feature is the dual-density foam seats that provide an extra element of comfort on the road.

Turn-by-turn navigation may also help drivers keep them focused on the road while an automatic crash response system and emergency services link are ready to respond should there ever be an accident.
