The newest entry in the midsize truck segment is one step closer to being on the road, with the Chevrolet Colorado shipping to dealers today.

Consumers have created more than 100,000 configurations of the trucks since the Colorado Build Your Own website went live on Sept. 3.

“The Colorado was designed to meet the demands of the modern midsized truck buyer, and now we’re fulfilling the demand they’ve placed on us,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “Chevrolet and everyone at the Wentzville plant has worked hard to get the truck out on time to fulfill as soon as possible the orders our dealers have placed.”

The Colorado benefits from technologies like cabs and frames made with more than 72 percent high-strength steel, available active aero shutters to make the truck as aerodynamic as needed, and available OnStar with 4G LTE, creating a rolling Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven mobile devices to connect to the Internet.

The available 3.6L V-6 engines return 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway in 2wd form, making the Colorado the most fuel efficient V-6s in it’s class, offering three to five mpg better than the competition.

For the 2016 model year, Colorado will add a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel to the engine lineup. Technical details and EPA fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.

With the introduction of Colorado, Chevrolet will offer customers more pickup choices than any other brand, including midsize, full-size light duty and heavy-duty pickups.

Wentzville (Mo.) Assembly this week announced the addition of a third shift to build the all-new Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickups. Alicia Boler-Davis, senior vice president of Global Quality and Customer Experience, visited the plant and talked about the trucks and the significance of the happenings at Wentzville.
