Vehicle Details

Chevy Colorado was designed for the way most people use a mid-size pickup. So it emphasizes interior room and comfort. Most are willing to sacrifice bed length for interior space, and towing capacity for a smoother ride. So the Colorado is engineered for room and comfort, for a smooth ride and for fuel efficiency.Yet the Colorado is far from a car with a bed. In fact, the Colorado provides all the trucking capacity most owners will ever use. It has a six-foot bed with Regular and Extended Cabs, and a five-foot bed on Crew Cabs. A properly equipped Colorado is rated to tow 4,000 pounds, enough for transporting ATVs, dirt bikes, personal watercraft, bass boats, and small camping trailers. For most people, the Colorado is more than enough truck to get the job done. With high fuel prices and crowded parking lots, it makes more sense than having a full-size pickup.We found the Chevrolet Colorado rides smoothly and feels refined. Order the five-cylinder engine and it accelerates smartly. The Crew Cab features a roomy back seat that's surprisingly comfortable and not bolt-upright.A work truck model is available, an inexpensive Regular Cab called the WT designed as a worksite tool. It comes with hose-it-out vinyl floor mats and durable vinyl bench seating, ideal for muddy boots. It also comes with air conditioning.Considered a mid-size pickup, the Colorado is substantially smaller and more maneuverable than full-size pickups such as the Ford F-150, Dodge Ram, or Chevy Silverado. These are important benefits because even those who frequently use pickups to perform genuine truck duties spend most of their time driving with an empty bed. Unlike a full-size pickup, the Colorado fits into tight parking spaces.For 2007, Chevrolet increased the size of both the base and the optional engines. The base-level four-cylinder engine was bored out to 2.9 liters for 185 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. The optional five-cylinder engine was enlarged from to 3.7 liters, for 242 horsepower and 242 pound-feet. Other improvements included a smoother-shifting automatic transmission, a more powerful 125-amp alternator, a standard tire-pressure monitor, and brighter interior trim.Changes for 2008 are modest, but still significant. Chevy has cleaned up the Colorado's appearance, with less charcoal-colored trim for a more monochromatic look, especially at the LS trim level, which now wears body-color bumpers. In general, fewer trim levels and option packages are offered, although most of the same features are still available as stand-alone options. The net effect should be to simplify ordering.
