With the Colorado, Chevy has created a truck that’s quite different from the legendary Silverado. The Chevy Colorado is a high-quality, four-door, midsized pickup that has everything you want from a Chevy but in a smaller, more manageable package. The Colorado is customizable and capable, and even if you’re an avowed Silverado driver, the Colorado is worth taking the time to learn about.
The Colorado is a manageable size and equipped with everything a truck owner needs.As a midsized pickup truck, the Colorado is smaller than the Silverado, but it doesn’t feel too small. The Colorado can be equipped with a 5- or 6-foot bed length, giving you some options regarding how long the truck will be. The size is comparable to the Toyota Tacoma or the Nissan Frontier, its two main competitors. While the Tacoma and the Frontier have a pretty loyal following, the Colorado could certainly sway some truck buyers.
A 3.6L V6 engine powers the Colorado, providing it with all the power it will need to tow a boat or haul a load of brush or gravel. If the 3.6L V6 is too much engine for you, you have the option to step down to a 2.5L I-4 engine. Both of these engine packages get over 25 miles per gallon on the highway, making them two of the best truck engines out there. If neither of those engines sound very interesting, just wait until 2016 when Chevy rolls out the 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel. When that engine comes out, the Colorado will be the only mid-sized pickup available with a turbo-diesel.
Because the Colorado offers so much in terms of size and engine packages, you might think that it skimps elsewhere, but you’d be wrong. The Colorado is fully equipped with all the latest safety technology including several airbags and a rear-vision camera. The customizable, eight-inch color touchscreen allows you to be only a few finger swipes away from anything. And with Chevy’s MyLink Technology, connecting has never been easier. Don’t forget about Chevy’s amazing OnStar service as well. All of these things in one vehicle means that the 2015 Colorado is one of the best vehicles you can buy.
