2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Turning 10,000 Miles
June 4, 2015
I was there when our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado turned over 5,000 miles and I was there again when it recently turned over 10,000. I think I'm fated to be with this truck.
Well, maybe not this one specifically. I don't know how our twitchy-footed Josh Jacquot treats the Colorado while towing, I don't know what kind of lettuce patches Brent tore up during his miles in this midsizer, and I don't want to consider the depravities Magrath has visited on this truck's transmission (if Magrath drives trucks that is, which I'm not entirely certain of).
But I think I'd buy a Colorado. Maybe a GMC Canyon if I was feeling a little flush.
Seven months and 10,000 miles into our long-term test, we've been using and enjoying our Colorado. We've towed EVs and rally cars with it, we've installed a trailer brake controller, and we've taken some short road trips.
But we're still about 2,000 miles shy of our annual 20,000-mile pace. It's a familiar theme. Summer weather, vacations and road trips tend to close those gaps quickly, so I'd say we're still on course.
