New 2015 Chevy Colorado Designed for Active Lifestyles
• Concept combo pairs custom Colorado crew cab wîth Nautique boat, trailerLAS VEGAS
– Chevrolet demonstrated the versatility and capability of the all-new Colorado midsize pickup at the SEMA Show today, pairing it wîth the Super Air Nautique 210 – one of the 's most iconic wakeboard boats, which can generate a wake strong enough for wakeboarding at lower speeds.
The concept Colorado crew cab, Nautique boat and its trailer share the same custom orange metallic flake paint scheme, while the truck and trailer wear matching 18-inch Chevrolet accessory wheels. With a dry weight of 4,200 pounds for the 21-foot boat and an estimated trailer weight of 1,000 pounds, the combination is well within the capability of Colorado's §egmènt-leading 7,000-pound maximum trailering rating.
'You can't own a lifestyle product like the Super Air Nautique without the assurance of a strong, confidence-inspiring truck to haul it to your favorite lake,' said John Fitzpatrick, senior marketing manager, Chevrolet trucks. 'The Colorado rewrites the book for midsize trucks, delivering unprecedented performance and capability for people who need the versatility of a truck in a smaller package than a full-size pickup.'
Completely redesigned, the Super Air Nautique 210 incorporates new technology and design features resulting in the look and performance customers expect from Nautique. The sleek and powerful Super Air Nautique 210 is powered by the ZR 450 by Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Group.

Traditional truck features such as four-wheel drive and a highly flexible bed wîth Chevy's GearOn™ cargo management system are available, enhancing capability. The GearOn™ system is designed to fit within the bed, for significant storage and hauling flexibility. It is upgradable, wîth modular cargo dividers and tiered storage to accommodate 4-by8 sheets of plywood above the wheelhouses. It also uses the box's four permanent and 13 moveable tie-down provisions to allow for a variety of secure and convenient cargo stowage options.
The Colorado has a short turning radius of 41.3 feet (12.6 meters), enabling easier turning in tight areas such as city streets or when backing a trailer. Additional features include:
◾Four-wheel disc brakes wîth Duralife™ brake rotors that offer up to double the service life, which can save money on maintenance.
◾Available G80 automatic locking rear differential delivers a traction advantage when needed and quieter, more comfortable driving when it's not

◾Available EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate that uses an internal torsion bar to make raising the tailgate easier wîth one hand, and a damper for more-controlled lowering
