Range of personalization options explored through dealer-available components
2014-11-03

PAHRUMP, Nev. – An array of accessorized 2015 Chevrolet Colorado models is on display today at Spring Mountain Motorsport Resort, showing the myriad of personalization possibilities available to customers through Chevrolet dealers.

The accessorized versions of Chevy’s all-new midsize truck explore a range of themes, including camping, watersports, off-road driving, work and purely stylistic, with a chrome package. All of the parts highlighted on the trucks are available through Chevrolet dealers from Chevrolet Accessories.

“Accessories can be an afterthought with many new vehicles, but they were part of the development plan for the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado from the very outset,” said Jennifer Goforth, director — Global Accessories. “The result is a wide range of work and activity products designed to match the truck’s capabilities with integrated functionality and designs that complement its distinctive styling.

Colorado’s accessories are not only designed, engineered, tested and backed by General Motors, many can be ordered with the vehicle and wrapped into the vehicle’s purchase price, along with installation charges. In fact, customers can have the accessories installed when they purchase their new truck, so they are ready at the time of vehicle delivery – and the accessories carry a warranty backed by GM.

The lineup includes an all-new, patent-pending GearOn™ system and a variety of accessories designed to make cargo hauling easier and more convenient, as well as exterior styling enhancement and interior items.

“No matter what your work needs and recreational interests, there are accessories tailored for the Colorado to make the task easier,” said Goforth. “And if you simply want to make your Colorado like no other on the road, we’ve got the styling enhancements to make it stand out, too.”

GearOn™ system
Designed to fit perfectly within the Colorado’s pickup box, this innovative, patent-pending accessory is designed to hold larger items such as bikes, boards and kayaks above the bed, leaving room for smaller gear such as tents and sleeping bags in the bed. It can even accommodate 4 x 8-foot sheets of plywood above the wheelhouses. GearOn™ uses the box’s 13 tie-down provisions to allow for a variety of secure and convenient cargo stowage options.

Pickup box accessories
For work and play, the following accessories help make cargo hauling easier and more convenient, and also help protect the Colorado’s pickup box:

  • GearOn pickup box carrier cross rails – Raised rails allow longer items such as kayaks to be carried above the bed, leaving room for more cargo; and tiered rails in the bed are the foundation for the system, along with GearOn cargo tie-down rings
  • GearOn bed divider – It permits users to portion off their bed for optimal cargo management and transport
  • GearOn utility rack – Great for work, it employs raised rails to help carry longer items above the cab and retain additional cargo-carrying capability in the bed
  • Drop-in bedliner – Durable and great at protecting the painted finish of the pickup box, its fully ribbed, skid-resistant floor helps prevent cargo from shifting during transport. It’s available in black for both box lengths
  • Cargo net – A heavy-duty item that helps secure loose cargo during transport
  • Tonneau cover –This soft-cover accessory delivers multiple benefits, including securing cargo and protecting it from the elements; and it enhances aerodynamics, which can improve efficiency on the highway
  • Removable cargo rings – These patented rings can be placed in 13 available locations around the box, depending on the cargo being secured and customer preference. Rated at 250 pounds each, the removable cargo rings make it more convenient for customers to secure a variety of cargo
  • Rubber mat – An easy-to-install item designed to match the contours of the pickup box, which provides a more secure way to transport cargo
  • Tailgate liner – Similar to the bedliner, it protects the tailgate
  • Toolbox – Constructed of 1.5mm diamond-patterned aluminum with piano-style hinges and a weather-resistant seal, it provides excellent protection for cargo.

Exterior accessories
  • Chrome appearance package – Includes chrome tow hooks and exhaust tip for a more upscale appearance
  • Chrome appearance package plus – Includes chrome door handles, mirror caps and tailgate handle
  • Exhaust tip – Features the Chevrolet logo
  • Grilles and grille inserts – Available in body color to give the Colorado a customized appearance
  • Molded hood protector – Helps deflect road debris and insects while helping shield the hood from stone damage
  • Molded splash guards – Protect fenders from road debris and mud. Rear splash are offered with the Chevrolet logo
  • Rectangular assist steps – Available in chrome or black finishes, they ease entry and exit into the vehicle
  • Off-road-style rocker steps – Available in a black finish, they mimic the look of rocker protection panels that are popular with off-road drivers
  • Wheel locks – Help prevent wheel theft and may reduce insurance rates.
Trailering accessories

  • Ball-mount trailer hitch – Comes complete with a chrome-finish tow ball, washer and retaining nut. Designed to fit the vehicle’s hitch receiver located in the center of the rear bumper or the accessory hitch mount assembly
  • Receiver cover – Delivers a more finished appearance when the hitch is not being used and prevents debris buildup in the hitch receiver
  • Trailer harness – Provides convenient electrical connection from the vehicle to the trailer.
Interior accessories

  • Carpeted floor mats – They protect the carpet with a tailored fit
