Not a bad truck
By J in Jax on
2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS Rwd SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)
Not as big as some of the newer trucks by Dodge, Nissan and Toyota, but if you truly want a small truck with decent gas mileage this is a nice truck. The power off the line is kind of weak, but when passing, the truck can handle its own. The power is steady all the way up. Not jumpy like my full size Sierra. I love the Z71 package. It brings the truck up higher but not too high to load things like the new full size trucks. Overall looks really grew on me too. I used to hate the front but it grew on me enough to buy one.
Z71, sunroof, MP3 stereo. I would recommend getting the in-dash changer with XM in it though.
Seats are kind of firm. Low end power could use some help. Full size bed would be real nice too. I will never buy a 5' bed again.
