Colorado ZQ8 LS I5 Auto
By wylde on


2004 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab ZQ8 LS Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


My truck actually has the inline 5 with
Auto (loaded) but that selection was not
available. I test drove it out of
curiousity since I own a S10 and bought
it out of impulse... no regrets.
After owning 2 S10 trucks, one a 2002
Xtreme (loaded) and a 98 S10 LS (which I
still own) the Colorado really impressed
me in the ride and power (I even got a
speeding ticket test driving...oops). I
had actually test drove a crew cab ZQ8
but opted for a regular cab instead
simply for personal preferance in looks.
The sound system is a huge improvement
from my 2002 S10. It can be left stock
as mine will. I wish they would have had
MP3 availability though (2005 supposedly

Best Features

The power is unbelievable for the size of engine and fuel economy is equally unbelievable. After having a gutless 4.3 V6 I was very impressed with the I5 engine.

Worst Features

Nicer interior and better seats definately should be first for GM. No vanity mirror in the driver side sunvisor is very cheap on their part and the headliner could be improved. My 98 S10 LS has some better interior features as in dual lighted vanity mirrors and a matching headliner.
