Fully redesigned for this model year, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado represented quite a leap forward for the midsize pickup truck segment. In fact, this had been the most state-of-the-art pickup truck available in this segment in terms of tech features, performance, and safety. Take your pick between a 2.5L inline-four that makes 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.6L V6 that pumps out a commanding 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Properly equipped, this model can tow up to 7,000 pounds.
Enjoy premium features like the the Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen interface with smartphone integration, a 4G LTE Wi-FI hotspot through the OnStar telematics system, a Bose stereo system, and safety features like forward collision warning and lane departure warning.
The 2012 Chevrolet Colorado was the last rendition of the first generation of this pickup. For the most part, it is a continuation of what you’d find in previous versions, but if you’re looking for extra performance capabilities, you might want to consider the 2012 model. That’s because this is the first version of the Chevrolet Colorado to be offered with an automatic locking rear differential on trims in the middle of the pack.
Like the 2012 model, the 2011 Chevrolet Colorado doesn’t see any major changes. It comes with a few different powertrain options, including a 2.9L inline-four that makes 185 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque, a 3.7L five-cylinder engine that gets 242 hp and 242 lb-ft of torque, and an available 5.3L V8. You’ll have your option of either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with a two-speed InstaTrac transfer case. In terms of cabin design, choose between a Regular Cab with seating for three, an Extended Cab with room for up to six, and a Crew Cab model that also seats six and includes full-swinging exterior rear doors for easy entry.
Stay even safer with the 2010 Chevrolet Colorado and the versions that followed. New for this model year were head curtain airbags standard across every trim and format. Like other Chevrolet Colorado models, the 2010 rendition also comes with standard antilock brakes, stability and traction control, and side curtain airbags. Take advantage of the OnStar telematics system, as well, which includes emergency communications like automatic crash notification, emergency roadside assistance, and a stolen vehicle locator feature.
The 2009 Chevrolet Colorado marked a big year for the future of performance on this model. It was the first version of the Colorado to be offered with the 5.3L V8 engine, which meant you could get this midsize pickup with 300 hp, 320 lb-ft of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped.
This was also the first version of the Colorado offered with the off-road suspension package on the Z71, a ZQ8 suspension oriented for on-road sportiness, and a new antilock brake system designed to make the truck brake more quickly. Topping off this model year’s sporty orientation is the fact that the old Sport Appearance Package is standard across the entire Colorado lineup.
