It is hard to find a more capable midsize pickup truck than the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado. Almost big enough to be considered full-size, the Colorado offers more than enough capability to tackle touch jobs or extreme off-roading. With three fascinating engine options, the Colorado offers a perfect blend of efficiency and power. Combine that with first-class technology, driver-assist features, and a quiet, comfortable ride, drivers will not have any desire to look at another truck.
2020 Chevrolet Colorado review
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado comes in three different cab and bed configurations: Extended Cab, Long Box; Crew Cab, Short Box; and Crew Cab; Long Box. The extended cab, long box version is the lowest priced at $24,098.
There are five different trim levels for the Colorado: Base, WT, LT, Z71, and ZR2. The ZR models bring in off-road features that change the truck’s capability but also add significantly to the price tag.
The Base model provides a surprising number of options, including a Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. In addition, there is a 4-way power driver seat, USB ports, and power locks and windows.
For the best value, the mid-level LT trim is a solid all-around truck. Upgraded features include cruise control, remote-locking tailgate, automatic climate control, and more. The Colorado is solidly put together and offers a more modern feel than its class rivals–the Frontier and the Ranger. It also offers a better ride quality by smoothly gliding over both small and large bumps with hardly any movement in the cabin.
Powerful Engine Options
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado offers three engine choices to meet any driver’s needs. The standard 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine provides 200 horsepower, 191 lb-ft of torque, and 1,588 towing capability. It has a fuel economy of 12.1 L/100km city and 9.2 L/100km highway.
An available 3.6-litre DOHC V6 engine offers best-in-class 308 horsepower, 275 lb-ft of torque, and up to 3,175 kg towing capability. The other available engine option is a Duramax 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine that offers 369 lb-ft of torque and up to 3,493 kg towing capability. It also provides best-in-class fuel economy of 7.9 L/100km on the highway.
Great Value for the Money
In the end, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is a hardworking truck that also offers the ability to double as a family or off-road vehicle. It is ready to take on the world and offers a large variety of quality, comfort, and convenience features, as well as safety and driver-assist technologies–however, these are not present on the lowest-priced models.
