The Colorado sees minor modifications for 2018 offering new attributes and a commemorative version. Heated outside mirrors and exactly what General Motors calls Active Tow are currently offered. The towing system assists the driver align the pickup when switching to hook up a trailer; it is regular on the V-6 and gas versions but not accessible with all the four-cylinder. To celebrate Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary, a special-edition bundle is available on the long- and crew-cab Z71 trim.

The Colorado was cosmetically unchanged for 2017, but its revised V-6 additional electricity (up 3 horsepower and 6 lb-ft of torque) in addition to cylinder deactivation for fuel efficiency. GM’s Teen Driver security feature is standard on all versions, also. Rounding out the improvements were new exterior colours (Graphite Metallic and Cajun Red Metallic); optional power-adjustable, heated front fabric chairs; an AutoTrac move example on all gasoline-powered, all-wheel-drive LT and Z71 models; plus also a Custom Special Edition for the WT model comprising body-color trimming bits, bigger wheels, and also the 7.0-inch MyLink infotainment system.

The special edition package is available on the long- and also crew-cab Z71. It features a color-keyed grille and rear bumper, legacy badging, a spray-in bedliner, chrome outside pieces, and exceptional 18-inch wheels. The Colorado is now also available with heated outside mirrors.

Chevrolet Colorado Exterior

Conserve the 20-inch brakes and bling-bling to your fancy-pants GMC Canyon Denali; the Colorado would be to experience exactly what John Denver was into the Rocky Mountains. This can be exemplified by the Z71 version, which includes a conventional off-road suspension, an automatic locking rear differential, front tow hooks, and protective slide plates. An optional Midnight Edition bundle demands black exterior paint and extends that color to the badging, body-color trimming, and 17-inch wheels. The revolutionary ZR2 is the epitome of all trail-ready, using a special front end, 17-inch wheels, also–marketed as an attachment–a bed-mounted spare-tire carrier. Additionally, it comes with a 2.0-inch lift which matches 31-inch off-road wheels, a 3.5-inch-wider monitor, and front and rear locking differentials for your conventional all-wheel-drive system.

Chevrolet Colorado Interior

With zero adjustments for 2018, the Colorado inside proceeds to supply full-size-truck feel. Too bad that means that the substances inside stay subpar. Front-seat legroom from the Colorado is just 0.3 inch less than at the larger Chevrolet Silverado. While the Colorado and GMC Canyon will assert the section’s roomiest front chair, the Honda Ridgeline’s rear seat is the most usable.

Interior Features

Aside from plastics which look sourced from Fisher-Price, when it comes to its design, the Colorado’s inside is quite functional. Clearly marked controls and rubberized knobs appear more at home here than at fancier Canyon examples. However, since with the Canyon, the giant shifter takes up too much space around the middle console. The Colorado’s inviting front seats and perfect seating position make it a comfortable commuter. Whereas the Canyon’s top notch Denali trim denotes luxury, Chevy’s Colorado’s Z71 equal represents ruggedness. This includes a distinctive Jet Black fabric and leather-accented interior that is durable and easy to wash.

Chevrolet Colorado Powertrain

The system assists the driver align with the pickup when switching to hook up a trailer. We have had a Opportunity to Check the Colorado ZR2 in the monitor. The most important difference between both search engines (that the V-6 and petrol inline-four) is the way they provide electricity. The diesel-powered ZR2 Crew Cab we drove was nearly as fast as the routine Colorado together with the Duramax. Oddly, the crew-cab ZR2 using the V-6 was considerably slower compared to its regular V-6-powered counterpart.

The trail-ready Colorado ZR2 allure to our animal instincts–just enjoy the high-flying Ford F-150 Raptor. But, we would exercise restraint here and choose the Colorado LT using all the crew cab, regular box, 3.6-liter V-6, and all-wheel driveway. Beginning at $34,770, it unites a cottage with seats for five, all-weather capacity, and remarkable acceleration and towing functionality–up to a maximum of 7000 lbs within this particular configuration. The LT has regular Features like:

• Power-adjustable outdoor mirrors

Stepping up to the LT in the decrease WT (Work Truck) cut costs $2555 longer but adds several look updates and unlocks otherwise inaccessible alternatives like satellite radio, lively security aids, and luxury interior fittings. We picked the Luxury package ($1080), including heated, power-adjustable front seats and other attributes to liven up the insidenonetheless, this requires leather chairs ($950) and the LT Convenience package ($690 for remote launch, rear-window defogger and slipping section, along with EZ Lift & Lower tailgate). The final invoice for our Colorado LT Crew Cab was $37,490.
