Chevy Colorado Top Highlights

If you desire the maneuverability, efficiency and overall city-friendliness of a compact truck, the Chevy Colorado should be at the top of your options list. It's been the recipient of several accolades, such as the 2017 Best Compact Truck for the Money award from U.S. News & World Report and 2017 Autobytel Buyer's Choice award in the small truck segment.

The Colorado has also distinguished itself from competitors by offering class-leading mpg, horsepower and tow ratings (when properly equipped). See the rest of our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado review below for additional information.

Colorado Trim Grades & Features

To configure your perfect Chevy Colorado, you can start by deciding between Extended Cab and Crew Cab body styles. The former includes a 74-inch box and the latter can be had with a 74- or 61.7-inch box. If 4WD is a must for your needs, select the Extended Cab, which can be had with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive (Crew Cabs are 2WD only).

Next, based on the drivetrain and body style you've chosen, you'll get to select the trim level that's right for you. All available trim grades include Base, WT, LT, Z71 and ZR2. Each comes with standard electronic features like Bluetooth phone and audio, a USB port, rearview camera, MyLink audio, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. A built-in Wi-Fi hotspot is available on select grades. In addition, an Active Tow feature is standard on many models for 2018; the new technology aids drivers with lining up the truck with a trailer when backing up.

The ultra-rugged ZR2 is one of several models available with Active Tow. The model also includes class-exclusive features like electronic locking differentials and Multimatic Shocks. Visit us to test drive a 2018 Chevy Colorado in the Dallas area and learn about these and other features in person!

Chevrolet Colorado Horsepower & Torque

Three powerplants are included in the Colorado lineup. The base engine is a 2.5-liter inline-4 with 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Above this, there's a Duramax 2.8-liter inline-4 turbo-diesel with 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. On 2WD Colorado models, the Duramax provides best-in-class towing (7,700 pounds) and fuel economy (22 city/30 highway).

The third engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that provides 275 torque and best-in-class 308 hp. If you've been searching for a Chevy Colorado for sale near me, visit Vandergriff Chevrolet and give each engine a try to determine which is best for your needs.

Colorado Safety Features & Technologies

Colorado emphasizes safety just as much as it does performance. Standard safety equipment includes stability control, traction control, six airbags and a tire pressure monitoring system. Certain models are available with the OnStar Guidance Plan as well; the service includes numerous security functions, such as automatic crash notification, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle assistance and turn-by-turn navigation.
