After the new Chevy Colorado and its brother, the GMC Canyon, were rated a segment-best 26 mpg highway with the 3.6L V6, GM returns with another piece of info that might interest potential customers.
Priced from $20,995 for the base extended-cab and the 2.5-liter 200 horsepower four-cylinder mill, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado now has a "Build Your Own" tool, otherwise knows as an online configurator. It's just what the prospective buyer needs before the new Colorado hits U.S. Chevrolet dealerships.

“Our truck lineup is all about giving truck buyers choice,” said Tony Johnson, Chevrolet Colorado marketing manager. “With the Build Your Own site, Colorado customers can equip their truck, request a quote from the dealer and even get a price on their trade-in.” For starters, the light-duty pickup truck can be had in crew cab guise as well with a short or a long box, with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive and in three trim levels: WT, LT and the range-topping Z71 specification.

The Rainforest Green Metallic exterior hue looks nice, but it will cost you $495. A 7-speaker Bose audio system is available, as well as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that can do sat-nav if you pay that little bit extra. If you tick a lot of boxes from the options and accessories list, you'll see the final price soar well past $36,000, so we'd advise you to not get too carried away with the available kit.

Although it's just a pickup truck, customers stay connected to the world wide web inside the Chevy Colorado thanks to OnStar 4G LTE WiFi, which comes with a 3-month/3-gigabyte trial period. If you just want the entry-level model with the 3.6L V6 engine, then add $1,220 to the $20,995 base price. The six-speed automatic transmission will set you back a further $650.
