Autotrader Find: Insane 2004 Chevy Colorado SEMA Build

Occasionally, I post SEMA builds here on Autotrader Find — vehicles that were exhibited at a SEMA show recently, or sometimes years ago, and are thus customized to the hilt to show off the cool wares of some aftermarket company. I’ve posted a few of these, but I can’t recall seeing one quite as comprehensively modified as this Chevrolet Colorado.

This 2004 Chevy Colorado has had basically every possible electronic thing done to it that can be imagined. Specifically, the back seats have been removed and replaced with truly massive speakers and subwoofers, as have the inside of the rear doors (and the rear windows). The truck bed is covered with a cap, which electronically raises itself up and reveals far more electronic equipment underneath — plus a huge television that also rises up with the truck bed.

Of course, there’s more — like several interior screens, a video game console and a crazy paint scheme combined with a wide-body look. It really is one of the most-modified vehicles I can imagine, and I’m surprised the starting point was a Chevy Colorado, rather than something more expressive like a full-size truck or a HUMMER.

If you’re interested in the ultimate in midsize pickup trucks with modified electronics, this Colorado is offered with just 4,500 miles by Orlando Auto Lounge in Central Florida — and it’s listed for $18,995, which is a huge discount compared to what it would cost if you wanted to fit your Chevy Colorado with so many aftermarket electronics.

  1. I’m assuming since the Chevy logo was left on it it was partially paid for (or base car was donated by) GM so that’s why it was used over a Hummer/etc.

  2. What a weird combination of brands. Normally these are promotional vehicles, and you see one brand of speaker throughout. Unless they were originally all one brand, and many have been replaced since then.
