Chevy Colorado preps for the beach

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado was only recently revealed, but that hasn't stopped the automaker from producing some interesting concept designs with the vehicle. While many of these special editions are catered to off-road driving, this latest creation from Chevy shows off a few other uses that are better catered to various recreational activities. 

One of the unique designs, which was also revealed at the L.A. Auto Show, is dubbed the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Lifeguard. Like the name implies, this pickup truck is ready to patrol the beaches along the Pacific Ocean - or any other sandy course you may encounter. The off-road vehicle is primed for driving on sand, and it is fast enough to satisfy the needs of any lifeguard or rescue worker. 

"Designed with adventure in mind, the Colorado is easily equipped for the mountains or the beach," the manufacturer said in a statement. "Inspired by the West Coast, this show truck demonstrates one of the many ways the new Colorado can be accessorized." 

It also has a variety of extra features that are capable of storing all of the gear lifeguards need to do their duty. Extra racks have been installed in the bed to hold equipment, and a bright yellow exterior, emblazoned with the words "Lifeguard Beach Patrol," ensures that the truck will draw attention when it's on the beach. 

While the Lifeguard version was showcased with an extended cab, a crew cab option will also be available. 

The midsize pickup is scheduled to go on sale in 2014, so off-roading enthusiasts won't have to wait too long to start making truck mods. While the civilian version of the Colorado will likely come in more subdued colors, there is also an all-black edition that has side steps, a bike rack, and a few other enhancements.
