2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS Base 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)


Review

I enjoy driving this vehicle. It has a nice smooth ride that is greatly improved over the S10. It handles very well, the gas mileage needs to be improved a little bit, but its not terrible. It is consistent. Drove it from Michigan to California with no problems whatsoever, has more than enough power for going up hills. The suspension is much better on the Colorado than on the S10, the biggest improvement, I think.


Best Features

The XM satellite radio. I have become convinced that there is nothing better, especially driving cross country.


Worst Features

In the extended cab, the cab itself could be a couple of inches longer.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)


Review

Love this truck. It is fun to drive, has great power and it makes a great tow!! It is easy to hitch and unhitch behind our RV better than the Saturn that we use to tow. Love the ride. It rides more like a car than a truck. Love the heated leather seats with lumbar support.


Best Features

Love the 6-cd changer, XM Satellite radio and the rearview mirror which has the maplight, compass & outside temperature. Love the self dimmer mirror when someone has their brights on behind you.


Worst Features

Cup holders in backseat need improvement. Should put them on the doors so you have full function of the rear seat.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab Z71 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I like it that its big enough to haul something, yet small. I owned an S-10, and this is by far more comfortable and more room. It looks great and sporty if I say so myself. People stop me at red lights and comment on the color "Sunburst ORANGE", even the older people. I love this truck.


Best Features

The look of the grille. The compass and temperture indicator.


Worst Features

Would have liked to had outside defrost rear mirrors.

Review

Don't read the professional reviewer's articles about this truck. They said the power of the 5cyl was only adequate. So on the test drive I gave it a little extra gas. It squealed the rear tires out of the dealership! I takes off faster than my old F150 with a V8. Tons of room inside make you feel like you are in a much bigger truck. The Z71 suspension rides great. It's not harsh at all. After more than 15 years of Fords I have switched.


Best Features

The room, and the room, and did I say the room! Power is more than enough.


Worst Features

A bigger center arm rest but then it would intrude into seat space. I'll live with it. Biggest problem, rear vision. The back seat head rests block the rear window. But you have to have them for safety, to protect passenger's heads from the back window.
