A bit sportier than its bulkier Silverado cousin, the
Chevrolet Colorado features a sweeping and more curvaceous design, yet still
offers a full-sized, full-featured truck. This extended cab truck comes with a
six-foot bed and is available in several trims, which include: Base, LT and
Z71. The Colorado comes standard with a trip computer, cloth upholstery, the
popular MyLink infotainment interface with GPS and Bluetooth connectivity,
active grill shutters that enable improved gas mileage and an ultra-quiet interior
cabin. Upgrades can add things like leather upholstery, premium sound system
and backup camera, amongst others. The base model is powered by a 2.5-liter
four-cylinder engine that puts out 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
You can upgrade to a beefier 3.6-liter V6 engine with 302 hp and 270 lb-ft of
torque for added power and increased towing capabilities. The maximum towing
capacity (with the V6 engine) is 6,700 pounds with an estimated 26 mpg
combined. The standard 36-month/36,000-mile warranty can be increased to add
more years of protection.
