The Chevrolet Colorado is a small truck that offers the ride and interior amenities of a crossover, with best-in-class towing capacity and fuel economy. That work/comfort balance is tough to beat, which is why the Colorado's sales have been so strong. Many truck buyers are looking for a pickup that can handle the demands of work while offering a pleasant cabin and ride for the weekend; the Colorado offers these, plus the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own in its segment.
Refinement isn't necessarily what comes to mind when thinking about trucks, but it is for the Colorado. While its direct competitors are pickup trucks, the Colorado also aims to win back ex-truck owners who turned to crossovers because there are more amenities offered there. The Colorado's cabin has many of the same features, including MyLink connectivity, Apple CarPlay, heated seats and a large touch screen that serves as the control hub for audio, phone and navigation.
The Colorado offers three engines: a peppy 4-cylinder, a capable V6 and the only diesel in the class. All three are strong choices, and are available with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The efficient yet responsive engines and the truck's pleasant ride make long drives a pleasure.
With features that rival those of similarly priced crossovers plus capability that is best in class, the Chevrolet Colorado, with a starting price of less than $21,000 and the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own for the second year in a row, continues to bring buyers back to the compact midsize truck segment.
