2006 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab LT 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the extreme package lowered frame. Need a kidney belt between 60 and 72 MPH. Severice dept says it is because of the extended cab and the lowered suspension. It gives me motion sickness to drive more than 30 or so miles.


Favorite Features

I love the design and the 18 inch wheels look nice, very spacious cab. Gas guage drops pretty quick for a 19 gallon tank. Our kids are grown and it is just my wife and I (mid 50's). This truck is too rough for us.


Suggested Improvements

Don't design a truck you can't ride comfortably in. I know it's truck, trucks ride rough. No, I had a Toyota Tacoma, this is worse than an old U- Hall truck.

Review

Overall a good little truck. Slightly under powered for the demands I put it through (doesn't like climbing the Rockies while fully loaded).


Suggested Improvements

V-6 option would be an excelent addition. the 4 is underpowered and I have no trust of the 5.

Review

This is a great truck. The 5 cylinder engine is silky smooth although the gas mileage could be better. The ride is firm but comfortable. Some extra lateral support in the seats would be good. I was amazed at how quiet it is inside-even at highway speeds. Outstanding leg room for driver and front seat passenger. Fit and finish is above average.


Favorite Features

I didn't think I would like XM Satellite radio, but it is awesome!


Suggested Improvements

More lateral support in seats. Improved gas mileage.

Review

This truck has been great. A long awaited replacment of the S-10 (and I had 1). I have the Z-71 package and it does well off-road and I have put it through its paces.


Suggested Improvements

An optional SS v-8 version.
