If you’re looking for a durable, affordable truck that comes with everything you want but nothing you don’t need, the Chevrolet Colorado is an excellent consideration. Continue reading to find out more about what the new Chevrolet Colorado has to offer you.
The 2012 Chevrolet Colorado can be equipped with a wide variety of different engine choices. The base engine is a 2.9L inline-four that’s worth 185 horsepower. There’s also a 3.7L inline-five that pumps out 242 horsepower, and a brawny 5.3L V8 that’s worth 300 horsepower. Though the base engine offers plenty of power to merge onto the freeway or pass other cars efficiently, the five- and eight-cylinder options expand your towing and acceleration capabilities considerably.
You can get exactly what you need in a truck in a Chevrolet Colorado. The two-door regular cab features a six-foot bed, the four-door extended cab models features two doors with two mini rear access doors and a six-foot bed, and the crew cab model features four doors and a five-foot, one-inch bed.
The base model Chevrolet Colorado is priced about as reasonably as any midsize pickup truck can get. On top of that, it comes with features like a front split bench seat, cruise control, Bluetooth (for hands-free cell phone use), OnStar, air conditioning, and a tilt steering wheel. And as far as gas mileage goes, the Chevy Colorado base model earns an exceptional 25 mpg on the highway.
The Chevrolet Colorado might be small, but its capabilities are extraordinary. With the V8 engine, the Chevy Colorado can tow up to 6,000 pounds. And because it has a very rigid frame design, it completely calms rattles and vibrations, even when you’re on a rough road. The Colorado also has an innovative sidewall design, giving it the distinction of best-in-class bed volume.
