2007 Chevrolet Colorado LS 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)
I replaced a 2001 GMC Highrider or ZR2 with the purchase of this Z71 4X4. Big difference in build quality between the two with the older model far exceeding the new models parts. No skid plates on new truck, rear drum brakes opposed to disc on the old model however this does get good milage and is a good everyday truck. I have taken a couple 200 mile trips and vehicle is very comfortable and capable. Time will tell how reliable this model is, old ZR2 is bullet proof and is still in the family, son drives it and is going strong with no problems at 110K miles.
Exterior lights, powertrain
Suspension way too soft, off road model should have bilstien or some other stiff shock. Stock shocks gives this truck a ride equal to a 1972 Olds 98 with 500,000 on it. I could see someone getting sea sick driving this around. Need new shocks!
