Lifeguard Edition of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado - 2013 L.A. Auto Show
No, we don't expect this version to come to market, but the Colorado would fit in as a lifeguard vehicle. We've seen plenty of Nissan Frontiers at the beaches in Southern California, so it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. The truck would have plenty of power, too, with the choice of two engines at launch, a 193-hp (estimated), 2.5-liter four, and a 302-hp (estimated) 3.6-liter V-6. And if buyers wanted to wait a year, they could get a 2.8-liter Duramax I-4 turbodiesel under the hood, which could offer more than 350 lb-ft of torque. The truck goes on sale in fall 2014 -- surfboard not included.
