2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Deep Center Console, Man
May 21, 2015
Rag on us all you want for getting the short bed with our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. I maintain that a Colorado crew cab with the 6'2" longbed is the wrong sled and will probably have you creasing corners and crushing sprinkler heads when you roll a tire up the island at your local Target parking lot. Looks dopey as well.
If you must have a longbed, get the extended cab. If you need the crew cab, get the short bed, then blog about every time the bed comes up too short (or just follow Kurt's roundly-ignored suggestion and get a simple bed extender).
Can't rag on the Colorado's long, tall center console, though.
Although the armrest is a little too manly for Monti, underneath it, the center console is deep enough to accommodate with a closed lid a 40-ounce Kleen Kanteen bottle, standing at 11 inches tall with cap.
It's a good thing too, since the Colorado purports to be an adventurous, active and outdoorsy lifestyle machine, and there's really nowhere else in the cab to stash this stainless steel, BPA-free bottle, which if you're an adventurous, active, outdoorsy person is one of the first things you're walking out with from REI.
