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.

Sled tower

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

the truck has been 100% reliable with 110,000 km on it. Average fuel economy has been 23.5 mpg. I did not care for the factory seats so I upgraded them to buckets with a console. I use the truck alot for towing snowmobiles on a trailer up mountain roads and for work. the truck has also performed well off road when required.




Walked away safely

On May 7, 2006, I was in a crash that involved my Colorado. I hit water and lost control and totaled my truck. After the fact, you could not recognize that it was a Colorado, but the fact remained I walked away from the accident with only a mild concusion. Its design, I think, was the main reason I'm still alive today. Thanks Chevy.

Starts right up at 20 below 0. Rides good. I will buy another one soon. Family and friends like it very much. Rides like a car on the interstate. Had no trouble going in snow .
