Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2012, Chevrolet makes a number of equipment changes to the Colorado line. The Power Convenience Package is added to 1LT trims, while 2LT trims gain standard front bucket seats. LT models no longer offer a manual transmission, and the 5.3-liter V8 engine is no longer offered on the 1LT. A locking rear differential is made standard on 2LT, 3LT and 1LT 4x4 models.
Enhanced safety features include standard StabiliTrak stability control and a new braking system with improved stopping distance. A host of new equipment includes revised wheels, more standard equipment on LT trims and an improved Z71 package. A 5.3-liter V8 can now be ordered on both Extended and Crew Cab models.
The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado can carry a hefty payload and tow a 7,000-pound trailer, yet it's small enough to park in a garage. It's available as an Extended Cab or Crew Cab, rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive, and with a 5- or 6-foot bed. Its attractive styling, interior refinement and efficient-yet-powerful engines set it apart from its Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier competitors. The new Colorado has best-in-class towing, is expected to offer best-in-class fuel economy, and is first in its class to offer features like Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and a standard back-up camera. All that, plus refinement and cool tech features should also attract owners of crossover SUVs who may have left the midsize truck market when it became stagnant.

"Only 40K on it LT 4x4 Crew Cab, never used on heavy work, just to carry my daughter's bike, and there are a lot of issues. Interior material looks and "sounds" like cheap plastic. ABS issues on all of them (please search more forums before buy it) Now, transmision or tranfer case broken (still waiting for diagnostics). Water leak inside the truck from bad door gaskets. Cheap brakes, are good only for 6K miles. Bad gasket, found water mixed with oil when I did oil change. Truck needs to warm up for more than 10 minutes when is cold, otherwise, just don't move. And, the worst resale value. Again, please search online customer reviews before buy this truck."

"I owned a chevy s-10 prior, was a bit mad when they discontinued it, but they did a good job with the colorado. this truck is prefect for me, I have the crew cab with the Z71 package on it, it looks great with body flares that are painted to match and a lifted stance, and I have used it for both towing and daily driving and it does both well, and does decent on the mileage, I get about 27mpg's with it, two words love it, great tuck in its class because no one else has the options that come with it, and that is why I love it. One thing that I do not like, and my only complaint, it is the brakes."

"I have previously owned a 2006 Colorado and I liked the way it handled and drove so much, that I just purchased another 2010 model. I'll admit the 2006 had it's problems and didn't last long in my possesion as it was traded in after only 14 months due to build quality issues, but I like the size, fuel economy, and handling so much, that I gave it another look, and I'm glad I did so far. I have owned the truck for about 10 days now and can say that there have been a lot of improvements. The I5 engine has plenty enough power for me, although that hasn't changed. The transmission seems to shift better than before. It stays in overdrive as you climb small hills and doesn't constantly shift as much as my old one. The seats are so much more comfortable to me. The brakes feel better too. They have added some nice safety features also, like side air bags, stability control, traction control and on star. I also like the fact that they include a bedliner in the LT package now too. I also opted for the G80 locking differential. Overall the truck has a more solid feel and the 5 year /100,000 mile powertrain warranty gives me some peace of mind, although I hope I never need it. I have previously owned a Silverado, but wasn't looking for such a large truck and the bad gas mileage that goes with it. I have also owned a Nissan Frontier in the past... but it didn't have all the options the Colorado has and got worse gas mileage. Overall, I'm very satisfied so far and would recommend that people give it another look."
