Lifestyle Motors invited TTAutoGuide down to their Barataria showroom for the Open House and launch of the new and improved Chevrolet Colorado that sports an updated exterior, a totally redesigned interior and is packed with features and performance. Prices start at $269,950* for the fabric LT, $289,950* for the fully loaded LTZ and are 5 Star safety rated with a 3 year or 100,000km warranty.
There two models currently available are the LT and fully loaded LTZ that come with the powerful 2.8L Duramax turbo diesel that puts out 200hp and 550 nm-tq and is mated to a 6 speed automatic with electronic select 4WD high/low and electronically assisted steering. The main difference is that the fully loaded LTZ comes with leather interior, lane departure assist, hill ascent and decent assist, automatic wipers and 18″ alloy wheels.
The updated interior has really improved the quality of the cabin and everything you touch. There is now Chevrolet MyLink that comes standard that is packed with a host of features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, that seamlessly integrates your mobile device for handsfree calls. There is even a useful voice command feature which allows you to tune the AM/FM radio, make calls and even respond to text messages or you can use the multi-function controls on the leather-wrapped steering wheel.
We also were lucky enough to take the Chevrolet Colorado on a test drive and feature overview and we were really impressed with the handling and performance. So look out for the video coming soon on TTAutoGuide.com.
