Review of the 2004 Chevrolet Colorado

  • It has the size, the features and the looks necessary to become the dominant truck in the compact class -- just don't mistake it for a midsize.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Versatile size, strong engine lineup, available side curtain airbags and locking differential, standard ABS.

  • Cons

    Still not as big as a Dakota, no V8 option, can't tow as much as the competition.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Colorado is an all-new compact pickup from Chevrolet.

Colorado a+ vehicle

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)

I have driven mine 18,000 miles-many of which I have towed a 12 foot enclosed trailer, the truck gets decent mileage and has ample power. The 4wd works great and the ride is firm but not harsh.For my part I feel the engine is a little small, the truck is designed to compete in the midsize market--but the engine option 3.5 is a little small for my part, it doesn't have the towing ability of my 1996 S10 Blazer..




Great commuter/hauler if needed

Great vehicle for people who like trucks but use it mostly for commuting with hauling capability.
