Start your car from your phone!!

I love my truck! It drives smooth, has easy hands free use. Bluetooth capability, back up camera, all the bells and whistles. Highly recommend! Gets decent gas mileage and the Bose stereo system is a plus! If you download the “my Chevy” app you can start your vehicle from your phone which definitely comes in handy in the winter time!

My truck is very reliable when it comes to all different terrains.

I haven't had any problems with my Colorado and I have had it for almost a year. It runs great and it's a smaller truck which is nice since I don't need a full size truck. There is heated seats which are nice after a long day of work or in the winter time and also lumbar support in the front two seats. Very comfy truck and roomy.

- Katlynn G

Easy to drive, spacious truck.

The Chevrolet Colorado runs so smooth. I like that it feels like a car but has features of a truck. The Bluetooth is very beneficial. The spacing is amazing. I have not have a problem with it so far. Also it is a gas saver when it comes to trucks. I would recommend it to anyone that is buying their first vehicle or first truck.
