Some of you may recall the Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss that was only around for the 2015 and 2016 model years. This unique package provided a bit more off-road kit than the traditional Colorado Z71 model it was based on. Primarily, the big upgrades were a set of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 265/65R17 all-terrain tires, while the 2016 model year truck added a bed-mounted LED light bar that went on to be a Chevrolet Performance Accessory. The package was quietly killed off with the introduction of the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 a year later. However, the mid-tier off-road package makes a comeback for the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado, will be be known as Trailboss this time around (per the official order guide, although media assets do name designate the trim level as “Trail Boss”).
2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trailboss: The Details
Listed as order code PEC, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trailboss (Trail Boss?) will be a more complete build than the previous go-round, and is made up of a long list of available accessories. It will be made available either on 4×4 Colorado LT or 4×4 Colorado Z71 trim levels. The new Trailboss package will feature the following:
- 17-inch high gloss black wheels (LPO code: SE0)
- Red front recovery hooks (LPO code W0H)
- Black CHEVROLET tailgate lettering (LPO code SB9)
- Black Colorado badging (LPO code SMG)
- Black bowtie logo (LPO code SG1)
- 1-inch front leveling kit (LPO code SQ5)
- Front skid plate (LPO code SIQ)
- Mid skid plate (LPO code SIR)
While the the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss had blackout badging and wheels, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trailboss adds the red hooks, the one-inch lift, and the skid plates. The package is not available with either the Colorado Redline, Z71 Midnight Edition, or Chrome Appearance Packages.
Buyers can also find a near-identical package in the GMC Canyon AT4 Performance Edition.
The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is expected to be one of the final model years of the 31xx generation. General Motors is currently testing the next-generation 2023 Chevrolet Colorado, as well as the 2023 GMC Canyon. And if you want a midsize GM truck with either a diesel, a V6, or an unlocked ECU, it’s best you act fast.
The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado and the new Trailboss package will be available for order this summer. Pricing is not immediately available.
