2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Good Ride for a Pickup
January 27, 2015
"This thing rides pretty good for a pickup," my friends nearly echoed as we headed to the Laguna Beach Playhouse. That's right folks, even tough-guy Monticello goes out and gets a little culture now and then at the theatre. Now that I think about it, no one calls me a tough guy. Whatever.
But back to the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab. I agree with my friends, this new midsize Chevy truck does ride nicely. It's no cushy luxury car by any stretch of the imagination, but for an unladen pickup it's certainly tolerable.
It will occasionally get the shakes on certain sections of concrete freeways, as do pretty much all pickups, but it's rare. The well-padded seats help cushion the ride, and most big hits are tempered nicely.
Full disclosure: The last pickup I took these two friends in (about a year ago) was a Ford F-450 Dually diesel. Suffice it to say, they weren't too thrilled with the ride in that thing.
