2012 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab 2LT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (3.7L 5cyl 4A)


Review

So far this has been a great truck.
It handles very well, rides decent for a 4X4 and its gas mileage is good for a 4x4.
It also looks better than its competition but that is a matter of personal preference.
Some of the reviews dont really reflect this is a truck for its intended purpose and not a car.
Excellent 4X4 capabilities.


Best Features

2LT package is nice and 18 inch wheels compliment the whole thing. Buckets are pretty comfortable and interior controls are easy to reach. Its also a truck that looks like a truck and there is no mistaking that. The 5 cyl has more than enough power, delivers reasonable gas mileage and can tow pretty well.


Worst Features

A little less plastic in the interior but again its a truck and not a car. Other than that, its a pretty nice ride.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab 1LT 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I tend to buy vehicles at the end of their design life -- bugs have been worked out, etc, and deals are there.
This 2WD Colorado is an exceptional value for the money. It IS comfortable, looks great, and from other owners I talked to, is RELIABLE.
In 3,000 miles so far this is the case.
Don't listen to professional reviews that push you towards imports...they ALL have cheap plastic interior.
Chevy did a great job on this truck. Perfect? No. Affordible, reliable, a great VALUE?
YES YES YES.
Have pulled pop up camper, hauled dirt and rock all in first months of use.
Only wish 2WD models were easier to find on the lots...why do we need 4WD when roads are cleared soon after it snows?


Best Features

2 wheel drive, comfortable seats, extended cab allows for my 2 girls to come along (did not want to sacrifice the bed space for the 4 full doors crew cab), Sixteen inch tires (can not stand 17 inch and larger tires....no use and no need for them at all), trailer hitch and wiring installed at factory.


Worst Features

MORE 2 wheel drive models on the dealer lots vs. 98% 4wd to 2% 2wd. Used to be the other way around. Biggest suggestion for truck would be to get rid of XM radio, On star. I've unplugged both. Don't need them yet they come on it no matter what.

Review

Really like it, have had Dakota's, Ranger's, full size Chevy's, this is the best yet.
Better gas mileage, simple controls, very comfortable and very nicely priced. Dated? Maybe but it has all the same bells-and-whistles the others have, at least in the LT2 I purchased.

Forget the reviews, if you want a truck but not full size this is the one and don't expect back seats in any extended cab to be "real" seats.


Best Features

Simple, accessible controls.


Worst Features

None, works great as-is.
