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


I've had the truck for about 6 months now and it is awesome! The 3.5L is worth the money... if you like performance and fuel economy, that is. My city and 80mph highway driving continually averages better than 20mpg. This is good for me because I have a lead foot. The A/C is cold, and cools quickly (and I live in Miami). It looks very, very much like a Honda inside, and classy with silver accents, which is to say 'better than a Honda.' Maybe I'm easily pleased - go to a dealer and see for yourself. I'm trying to think of something bad to say about it.... (nothing yet).

Best Features

Exterior looks great.

Worst Features

Better looking stock rims (which is a minor complaint). Optional 31"x10" all-terrain tires would be a nice option (as they fit fine and look fantastic with the Z71). My Magnaflow exhaust makes it sound like a big car but my fault for installing aftermarket stuff, I guess. It is an inline engine.
