Actually I own the 5 cyl. version. (not a listed option on this review). I'm enjoying the leg room and simple but user friendly controls. I considered the Silverado but didn't really need the big truck size or heavy expense at the pump. It's got the typical peppy GM engine/transmission and makes for a fun Sunday afternoon drive or ride to work. It has a surprising amount of back seat room for two adults. I'm getting 21.5 MPG combined city/highway driving. I've gotten a lot of compliments on the appearance of my cherry red Colorado.
Strong engine. Quiet ride. Comfortable interior. Love the XM radio. 5 ft. bed is great, all I need.
