When I ordered mine last September 3rd, it was $39,960 before tax, title, delivery charge. Options added from the gas crew cab short bed were Z-71 4x4 package & diesel engine. Also have remote start. Those options brought the price up from about $32,000. No other add-ons. Don't need navigation (use my phone for that). After purchase I added a Gator 2 cover for the bed and nerf step bars... about $1200. Hope this helps. Really like my truck.

I ordered mine through USAA(who partners with TRUECar): The MSRP $36,385
  • Crew cab,
  • Longer bed,
  • Z71 4x2(RWD) and
  • Diesel(obviously)
Bought it for $33,000 even pre tax and all that stuff.

I went with the Z71 because a came with all the features, except:
  • full leather
  • lane departure and forward collision warning
I also chose not to have:
  • 4X4 - because I won't need it in my life nearly enough to fret about it and I wanted that extra 2 MPG's (really it is 6 MPG's)
  • Bose Speakers - because standard speakers work great anymore
  • Navigation built in - because MyLink has Android Auto and Apple Play which really eliminates the need for it.
Last second I chose not to order the spray Bed liner - because the $475 after Tax (9%) alone is $517 and then Interest! It was definitely not worth the cool BowTie it came with.
I found a place locally $438 out the door to spray my bed w/ a UV protection.

Besides that I want to buy a floor liner either dealer or aftermarket and This elusive CeramicPro stuff i read about on here, covering everything keeping it protected inside and out.
The dealer offers something similar I need to research its quality.

So, yeah, $33,000 purchase price, but after everything and interest and extended warranty, I will be shelling out $41,000.
Though, I do plan to take advantage of the prepayment w/o penalties.

I just built one on the configurator and ended up at $40,950

Major accessories:
Diesel
Short Box Crew
Remote Start
Navigation
Bose Audio
Walked into a showroom and got white, LT, trailering pkg, Bose, Lux pkg (nav, remote start, heated seats etc) locking rear diff, rear slider window with a list of 38809. Got the dealer down to 36K and change with a trade. Love the heck out of this thing!

Question, how did you manage the diesel engine option as it wasn't an option as late a 3 June on the USAA Buyers service? For that reason, I couldn't take advantage of the reduced interest rate through the buyers service. I got a good deal, regardless, but I was disappointed that diesels weren't offered.

Take a couple thousand off.......add the tax back on your up to sticker......if the dealer puts a rebate on it you can do a little better ...with that being said......there is no inventory around .....they are selling like hot cakes....

My sticker price was about $42K, but it had quite a few of the Accessory items included in the sticker price. The Z71 option included a lot of the items that would have to add in other packages, as it already included the remote start and the heated seats. But mine also had the step bars, spray in bedliner, fender flares, black bowties, and trailering package. I absolutely love my truck, and the mileage is a big plus, averaging about 29 MPG overall.

There are a few on dealer lots here in Michigan still, but for the most part not many dealers have many Colorodo or Canyon pickups on the lot because the sell quickly, and currently there are incentives out there to move the MY16 vehicles.

Truckguy1970, what suspension enhancements come with the Z71 package? I understand it adds Bilsteins. Did you test drive non Z71 models. I am curious how the ride differes in the Z71.

Ottomaddick, for the Colorado, the Z71 is actually a vehicle trim level and not just a package like it is on the full size trucks. It actually includes quite a few options such as heated seats, remote start, fog lamps, tow hooks, locking rear differentional, sliding rear window, and others, along with the Z71 Off-Road Suspension package, which I believe is the Bilsteins, and skid shields. Both vehicles I tested were Z71 vehicles, one gas and one diesel, so I am not sure how the ride difference might be, but I would expect would still be fairly similar. For the items I was looking for the Z71 package included items that would be extras on the LT trim so actually seemed to come out cheaper that way when building one online because I prefer the heated cloth seats to the leather seat package and I am not a big fan of chrome so the Z71 has more body color and black than chrome.

Thanks. I was already aware of the packages. I was simply curious about the handling qualities and differences between Z71 and non Z71 configurations. I have a very well equiped LT, or as I like to call it, the HD, (see pic),Since the diesels already have stiffer suspension components than the gas models, I was wondering how the Bilsteins affected the handling. The LT's still have some residual body roll when making lane changes or other lateral maneuvering. Would like to reduce that.

Ok, now I understand. I don't seem to have much body roll in turns, but that is comparing to my full size which does. I'll have to check out my a couple of my co-workers, to see if any of them have the LT package to compare with, they gave the gas trucks one is the canyon with All Terrain package, which I would assume is same as Z71 suspension, and other is Z71 gas, but I think there is a diesel around here that is an LT as well. Might have to take a lunch break to check out the differences.

Looking over the comparo you posted, the only thing mine doesn't have is the Z71 suspension package and the skid plate. But as I have a 2wd, not sure that will be missed. I have the rest and I got it for 36 and change with some military incentives and my good looks. I do not miss the 328 convertible at all...
Ordered 1-Fab side steps today. On sale 399 and got another 20 bucks off just by asking. Will try to post a b4 and after pic.
Thanks again. Your truck looks great.

Got mine at $34k
  • LT 4x4
  • Bose Audio
  • LCD screen- no Nav
  • Safety package with lane depart and collision alert
  • Locking diff
MSRP was $40k. managed to Negotiate it at -$6K below MSRP.
Dealer had 2 Z71 black ed, but i drove them and couldn't notice any difference in the drive/feel with respect to my LT. Don't think the little wider tired and black reems justify the $3k or so price tag for the Z71.
