This 'Aint Your Dad's Compact!

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


I have the 4DR extended cab, Z71 4x4. It has plenty of leg room.This is no compact. The truck handles very well,and brakes equally as well.I also have the 3.5lt ebgine w/200 horses.After the cold intake is installed(approx.$350)The horses go up to 235-240. It get's 275-290 miles per Tank.More on road trips.That is w/the A/c running. It also has 15" rims(not bycycle tires).4 wheel drive on the fly comes in handy, especially in the desert.4drs w/no seats are nice for fishing,hunting or just keep your tools back there.It is not a fullsize bed,but then you won't have to move your friends. It still has enough room for medium size jobs.

Best Features

My favorite features have mostly been listed above.You got to love a 3" lift with nice ground clearance.I have to mention the 4dr rear cargo space again. If you get the Crew Cab w/ seats make sure the kids are small.

Worst Features

I would like to see this Truck Offered W/ a small block V8.While the inline 5 is nice make sure you take it out of overdrive going Up steep hills.It would be Nice if you could put a lift kit on it also. The best you can do is put 33's and crank the torsion bars.
