Besides the Ricky Carmichael-designed Colorado we showed you yesterday, Chevrolet’s lineup at SEMA this year also includes a custom Colorado prepared in collaboration with Nautique Boat Company. The concept is designed to reflect the versatility of the truck and its ability to cater for an active lifestyle.
So Chevy Colorado Nautique concept comes to the show attached to a 21-foot boat called Super Air Nautique 210, powered by the ZR 450 by Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Group. Both the car and the boat are wearing the same orange color with custom graphics.
The Colorado Nautique is powered by 3.6L V-6 rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque which provides enough grunt for a maximum towing capability of 7,000-pound. So it would have no problem towing the 4,200 pounds boast sat on 1,000 pounds trailer.
The truck is also fully kitted out with all the goodies available for the Colorado, including the GearOn system that allows for significant storage and hauling flexibility, Chevy MyLink with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert, Duralife brakes, CornerStep rear bumpers and more.
“You can’t own a lifestyle product like the Super Air Nautique without the assurance of a strong, confidence-inspiring truck to haul it to your favorite lake,” said John Fitzpatrick, senior marketing manager, Chevrolet trucks. “The Colorado rewrites the book for midsize trucks, delivering unprecedented performance and capability for people who need the versatility of a truck in a smaller package than a full-size pickup.”
