This 'Aint Your Dad's Compact!
By Hammerhead3812 on


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


I have the 4DR extended cab, Z71 4x4.
It has plenty of leg room.This is no
compact. The truck handles very
well,and brakes equally as well.I also
have the 3.5lt ebgine w/200
horses.After the cold intake is
installed(approx.$350)The horses go up
to 235-240. It get's 275-290 miles per
Tank.More on road trips.That is w/the
A/c running. It also has 15" rims(not
bycycle tires).4 wheel drive on the fly
comes in handy, especially in the
desert.4drs w/no seats are nice for
fishing,hunting or just keep your tools
back there.It is not a fullsize bed,but
then you won't have to move your
friends. It still has enough room for
medium size jobs.

Best Features

My favorite features have mostly been listed above.You got to love a 3" lift with nice ground clearance.I have to mention the 4dr rear cargo space again. If you get the Crew Cab w/ seats make sure the kids are small.

Worst Features

I would like to see this Truck Offered W/ a small block V8.While the inline 5 is nice make sure you take it out of overdrive going Up steep hills.It would be Nice if you could put a lift kit on it also. The best you can do is put 33's and crank the torsion bars.
