Review

I bought my Colorado in the summer of 2005 during the height of the employee discount sales and got a fantastic deal. I now have over 32,000 miles on my Colorado and I love it. The styling is great, the interier while a bit over-plastic in some areas seems to be holding up better then my S-10 Blazer. The 6-disk CD player is great, and overall the truck is fairly comfortable on long trips. The ride is impeccable for a 4x4 truck, rides like a car on trips, and a truck when it needs to. Having owned multiple 4x4's this one is the best and most stable negotiating icy roads. Gas mileage is good (20MPG on avg). The engine needs a bit more refinement as it seems to stuggle in high altitutes.


Best Features

Ride quality and handling, gas mileage, 4x4, cabin space.


Worst Features

The 3.5L I5 needs a bit more power/torque, something that I assume was addressed in 2007 with the introduction of the 3.7L. Might be nice if a small V6 was offered. Upgrade the cabin slightly. The cup holders appear to have been an afterthought, and the armrests are a bit uncomfortable.

Review

Driving this vehicle has been a pleasure. It has taken me as far north as upstate NY and as far south as Florida. I also drove it to Colorado hunting. That's why it has as many miles on it as it does.


Worst Features

It would be a much better truck with a small diesel engine.

Review

As a first time truck owner, I was a little unsure of what to truly expect after driving it off of the lot. After driving the truck for about 2 months now, I can say that I made a good decision! The truck responds quickly to driver input, with very little delay at highway speed. The only negative I have is the response off of the line. Low end torque needs to be adjusted. Other than that, the Colorado is a versatile little horse. It's a keeper!


Best Features

Crew cab size, sunroof


Worst Features

Increase low-end torque
