My favorite little big truck.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado 4WD Z71

Overall I really like this truck! I was looking for an import sized truck that still had the towing capacity that I needed. So yes a truck that I could drive in a tight city that can trailer out in the mountains! The performance of the truck is great and it rides smoothly on long road trips. When taking it out to the mountains of Colorado the pulling capacity allowed me to comfortably enjoy the long haul through Kansas with little sway. The built in engine break is also a plus allowing me to focus on other things when towing. I am also impressed by the fuel economy. The overall look of the Colorado is very sharp and it turns many heads. I get a ton of questions about my 'little' truck and how it has the 4.2l duramax diesel and it blows people's minds. The driver package my truck has is perfect for me as it has the Bose sound system that lets me rock out while driving. As for drawbacks I think that the built in navigation display system is a bit buggy. It struggles at times to recognize my phone and I have found it annoying to fiddle with all of it when driving. I would recommend the Colorado for anyone who has to work and play.

An AMAZING Truck that I would recommend to anyone.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado Base

My Colorado is wonderful. My two favorite things are the backup camera and the rubber floor mats. The backup camera is very clear and super accurate. It is my first time having a backup camera so it made me nervous at first but honestly I can not explain how useful it is. It is very helpful backing up to a trailer. The rubber mats are just amazingly easy to clean and really I think they look much sharper than the carpet mats. Additionally, the truck is comfortable and the fact it is a medium size truck is very nice. I can pick up anything I need to with it (lawn equipment, kayaks etc) and still don't feel like it is hard to park or takes up the whole road. Would recommend to anyone looking for a truck.

Little cab room, can haul heavy loads, good gas mileage.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado 4WD LT

After having driven the truck for less than a year, I can say that the gas mileage is great for a truck, even a midsize one. I often have to haul heavy loads; both trailer loads, as well as, 1000+ lb truck bed loads. This truck can hand the towing hauling just as well as any full size truck. The only downside I have experienced with this truck is the amount of cab room. My Jeep which I drove before the truck had a lot more space, and unfortunately the lack of space is what I hated most about the jeep too.
