Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Colorado

  • It has the features and the looks necessary to become the dominant truck in the compact class, but next to the all-new pickups from Dodge, Nissan and Toyota, the Colorado comes up short in power, interior room and overall fit and finish.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Versatile size, fuel-efficient engine lineup, available side curtain airbags and locking differential, standard ABS.

  • Cons

    Not much low-end torque, no six- or eight-cylinder engine option, low tow ratings, subpar build and materials quality.

  • What's New for 2005

    No major changes this year.

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab Z85 LS 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)

The interior space in the 2 door regular cab is plenty for me. I like the MP3 system / stereo. The 3.5 eng has plenty of zip and torque. Overall, the size makes is easy to drive in traffic. 4WD in Wisconsin winter weather is great! I found this to be much more reasonable price wise to the Toyota which I also considered.
