Best Truck for the money

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)

Review

I bought my Colorado in the summer of 2005 during the height of the employee discount sales and got a fantastic deal. I now have over 32,000 miles on my Colorado and I love it. The styling is great, the interier while a bit over-plastic in some areas seems to be holding up better then my S-10 Blazer. The 6-disk CD player is great, and overall the truck is fairly comfortable on long trips. The ride is impeccable for a 4x4 truck, rides like a car on trips, and a truck when it needs to. Having owned multiple 4x4's this one is the best and most stable negotiating icy roads. Gas mileage is good (20MPG on avg). The engine needs a bit more refinement as it seems to stuggle in high altitutes.

Best Features

Ride quality and handling, gas mileage, 4x4, cabin space.

Worst Features

The 3.5L I5 needs a bit more power/torque, something that I assume was addressed in 2007 with the introduction of the 3.7L. Might be nice if a small V6 was offered. Upgrade the cabin slightly. The cup holders appear to have been an afterthought, and the armrests are a bit uncomfortable.
