With three different engine choices available, the Colorado can handle “almost anything you throw at it,” according to the review. There’s the standard 2.5L I-4, or the advanced 3.6L V6, offering the most horsepower of any midsize pickup, according to the Chevrolet website. There’s also the exclusive Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel. With all this muscle, you still get decent gas mileage, estimated at 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, according to Chevrolet.
Chevy didn’t overlook the need for space. Crew cab models offer a roomy second row with comfortable seating for adults along with fold-down seating for extra storage.
For the technology fans, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capability lets you access your smartphone through the available screen display to get directions, make hands-free calls and listen to music or audio books. With available built-in 4G LTE WiFi connection for up to seven devices, you’ll stay linked no matter where you roam.
