I live in the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex. Accordingly, I see lots of pickup trucks because Texas is truck country. I own a 2017 Colorado Redline I purchased because I thought the package was pretty cool. As a consequence of keeping my eyes open for trucks like mine, I'm beginning to think there aren't many because I've never seen one other than my own. Just curious about others thoughts on the rarity of this truck. As the attached photos will show, I've added a leather interior, exhaust mods, engine decoration and a tonneau. Otherwise the truck is stock

Other than the red name badge on the door, what constitutes the Redline package?

I think these are the only items not standard on a 2017 LT to begin with, and several of them are available as accessories or options. Really just a package of regular items.

Red Lines are new and are being allocated out to all the dealers. In the next few months the other allocations will catch up and they will be found sitting on the lots like the midnight editions.

Hell we have ZR2 models sitting on lots now too.

If the Redline “Hotwheels” package was common it would just be another truck....

Isn’t that the point of being bent over by the dealer ($$$) for the few minor visual details that are different from a standard Canyon?

That interior looks like it is "all leather" not the "leatherette/cloth" combination, very nice looking truck!
Cloth and leatherette combo is for the Z71 models. LT's get all cloth or all leather, depending on options ordered.

I have not seen one but Newer Colorado's are pretty scarce to begin with here.
They can not keep them on the lots.

Love the Redline..
I was going to do some red on my Black truck. Red looks good on a black truck as long as it is only a little bit and not over done.
I saw the red tow hooks on a gm site forsale (ouch). I might just remove mine and paint them or have powder coated or dipped.

i like the little bit of red on the rims. I was trying to think how i could add just a bit of red to my rims.

No one is bending anyone over here.

These packages sell and add profit the key element of a business.

If one does not want the extras they can still buy the normal package.

Like Corvettes people buy image and few ever test it out. If they do many end up in the trees on YouTube.

Packages like this and Denali make money.

If they sell more power to em.

It's just a looky-loo package.
They didn't touch the drive train, like Redlines of the past.

Sounds like the SS 'package' on the S10s. Shame they don't have a ZQ8 suspension setup for the twins yet.

My Redline Saturn Sky has a turbocharger and produces 260 HP out of a 2.0L 4 cyl. in a 2990 Lb car. This thing will absolutley fly.

The Redline tag was origionally used for cars/trucks that had drivetrain modifications that were the top of the line. Either larger engines. turbocharged, or supercharged. The vehicle actually had RPM limiters built into them hence the redline connotation. They had controls that could override the limiters.

Now it appears GM marketers think that some cosmetic mods are enough. I hate marketing idiots.

Aaannndddd...the OP started this thread with “Redline models are scarce”
Aaannndddd...commented in his post...”I’m beginning to think there aren’t many”

To which I was responding. I am not sure how you got that I don’t want GM to make money???
To the contrary, I believe that they should make every penny that the market will allow...

By the way. I agree, if you want an appearance only upgrade package and are willing to pay through the nose for it, more power to you...and to GM for making extra $$$ on it. It keeps the standard vehicles prices down for us who would rather upgrade performance not just look cool...
