About Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab

The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado expands on its popularity with a unique proposition: a new Duramax 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine. It expands the towing capacity of the Colorado to 7,700 pounds, and promises to bump the fuel economy significantly as well. Yet it all comes with a surprising amount of refinement, enhancing the Colorado's day-to-day drivability. Also new are Apple CarPlay and an off-road package known as "Trail Boss." Combine it with features like Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and a standard rearview camera, and the 2016 Chevy Colorado has the goods to go toe-to-toe not just with the segment-leading and all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but also against crossover SUVs that may have left the midsize- truck market when it became stagnant.

"Truck lags excessively when slowing down and wanting to take off again such as at a turning lane. Truck only averages 16.7 miles / gallon on street. MY previous big 8 cylinder Silverado did that. If Id known that I wouldve bought a full size truck."

"This is a review for the 2016 Z71 4x4 w/ V6. // I have now owned this car for a little over a year and about 14000 miles. I am very happy with the purchase. It is a pleasure to ride both in city, while towing, and off-road. // My only minor gripe is the air-dam, which is kinda like having training wheels on a dirt bike. Without the air-dam the truck is a pleasure to take out on rough terrain where it eats through snow, sand, and rocks in an effortless fashion."
