Chevrolet Colorado Performance Concept

The Chevrolet Colorado and its counterpart, the GMC Canyon, are compact pickup trucks marketed by the American automaker General Motors. They were introduced in 2004 to replace the Chevrolet S-10 and GMC Sonoma compact pickups. As the SEMA is approaching, Chevrolet teamed up with the motocross racer Ricky Carmichael and managed to come up with the Chevrolet Colorado Performance Concept.

The ChevroletColorado Performance Concept is distinguished by a tailgate extender for securing bikes. The mounting hardware has been changed in such a way as to allow carrying bulkier items such as bikes, boards and kayaks above the bed in order to make room in the bed for putting smaller items like sleeping bags and tents. As you can easily notice it might become the perfect vehicle for the outdoor adventure fans.

The Chevrolet Colorado Performance Concept is inspired by the 2015 Chevy Colorado. It is covered in a bespoke matte gray paint with high-gloss silver and yellow accents as well as a graphic that illustrates Carmichael’s signature. It rides on the standard 17-inch wheels. However they have yellow accents and are wrapped in Goodyear Duratec off-road rubbers. Other notable modifications are a concept sport bar in the bed, interior cabin yellow accents and Carmichael's racing number 4 embroidered in the front headrests. The truck is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 developing 305 bhp (227 kW) and 269 lb-ft (364 Nm) of torque and it can be admired at SEMA starting tomorrow.
