When I drive our long-term 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, or any car in our fleet, it becomes a victim of the insanely litigious and comically-crowded parking lot known as Santa Monica. This means a lot of tandem- and parallel-parking scenarios where every inch counts. And since I don't want to be that guy whose truck is sticking out of every spot he parks in, I try to cut things as close as possible.
The rearview camera on our Colorado is happy to oblige.

The stereo in our long-term 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has a terrible short-term memory. Every time I unplug my phone or shut off the truck, it turns off the shuffle mode on my iPhone.

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado is offered in Base, Work Truck, LT and Z71 trims, and the more upscale LT and Z71 trims (our truck is the latter) come standard with an 8-inch touchscreen and Chevrolet MyLink interface. I've driven our Colorado for a few days now and find that, overall, the MyLink interface is pretty easy to use when first starting out.
There are physical buttons for direct access to radio (terrestrial and satellite) and "media" devices (USB, Bluetooth streaming audio), as well as a "home" button. There are no hard buttons for navigation or phone setup, which are accessed through the home screen or the phone/navi icons displayed on some screens.
There are two minor downsides to the system, however.

While I like my sports cars shiny, I like my pickup trucks to value function over form. Shiny-ness is not a requisite. Happily, this seems to be the case with the gauges in our long-term 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

It was an early morning and even after a second cup of coffee, I was a little foggy. I usually check the weather forecast and traffic sitchu before departing and figured our new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado would cover me on the traffic front.

Every new addition to the long-term fleet is a mystery unfolding, and part of that process means digging through the settings menus. I was doing just that this morning in our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and stumbled on an old nemesis: Unlocked Door Anti-Lockout.

Our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 left our fleet a while ago, but that doesn't mean all of its fancy features have gone with it. Now that we've got its little brother, a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado in our fleet, we get these nifty seat heaters back too.

A rearview camera is standard on every trim level of the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. So buy a Colorado and you'll have this benefit.
