Just about every automaker out there is coming up with a beefed up version of their pickup trucks. Be it the 4x4 or 4x2 version, there's always a variant that gets pumped up. Chevrolet is no different, as they have just unveiled their Colorado Trail Boss.
The Trail Boss is based on the LT variant of the Colorado. That puts this special model in between the aforementioned LT and the top-spec 4x2 model, the LTX. Chevrolet gave the exterior more attitude by ditching chrome for gloss black trimmings. It comes with a black grill and a gloss black bowtie badge. Also blacked-out are the wheels, which are lifted from the top-dog High Country Storm.
But if that's not enough, the Trail Boss gains a set of bolt on fender flares to make it wider than the standard LT. Also added to the package is a steel sports bar on the bed, which is exclusive to this variant. The rear bumper, which is typically chrome, has also been blacked-out to match the treatment made at the front. Last but not least are the decals at the back, just to let everyone know that you're driving the Trail Boss.
As for the rest of the pickup, it's largely carried over from the LT variant. It comes standard with Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Power is then provided by a 2.8-liter turbodiesel by Duramax, which is good for 200 PS and 500 Nm of torque. The lone transmission option is a six-speed automatic.
