2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Rock-Hard Armrests
January 22, 2015
Take a look at the center armrest in the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab. Nice and wide, right? Yep. So what's the problem?
The rubber covering feels nearly unpadded, it's nearly hard as a rock. I exaggerate a bit, of course. But it's sure not a comfortable place to rest your elbow.
The rubber-ish covering on the door armrest is slightly more forgiving, but you'd still never call it cushy.
Frankly, I don't understand what Chevy was thinking here, unless it was purely a cost-cutting measure. That, or Chevy's test drivers have far less bony elbows than me.
