2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Food Truck
August 25, 2015
People love trucks for transporting all kinds of things. We've used our long-term 2015 Chevrolet Colorado for bringing our motorcycles to the track, toting a transmission, and helping us move. But how does that cabin do when you want to move a bunch of precious cargo? And I'm not talking babies, since editor Erin Riches already did that.
I was throwing a Tiki party, because summer, and ordered enough catered Hawaiian food to feed 25 hungry people. Problem is that my daily driver, a Miata, definitely was not up to the task of carrying seven trays of food. I mean, the trunk maybe, but I wasn't going to chance it. I figured a sedan wouldn't cut it either, so enter the midsize Colorado truck to the rescue.
What's awesome about the Chevy as a catering truck is that it has enough wide-open floor space to fit those big trays. Even though my cargo included dry food like mini-sliders on Hawaiian rolls, spam musubis, and Portuguese sausage corn dogs, I was thankful I didn't have to angle the trays to make them fit. Last thing I needed was my precious coconut shrimp spilling all over the place.
After I belted in the musubis, I was ready to go. With no hard stops, my cargo survived the 10 miles in rush-hour traffic. Party on.
