Driving Impression

For a pickup truck, the Colorado offers a smooth ride that handles bumps well, making it a compelling alternative to a car. Some motions make it into the cabin, but wide sidewalls on the tires absorb a lot. We would be fine with a commute over rough roads in a Colorado, which we can’t say about the Tacoma or Frontier.

The Honda Ridgeline is also a rival, but it’s different. The Ridgeline has unitbody construction (like a car or a crossover), while the Colorado is body-on-frame, better for trucks because that design is superior for towing, hauling and durability.

The 3.6-liter V6 makes 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 2.8-liter turbodiesel was new for 2016. It makes 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque at just 2000 rpm, so it pulls like a V8 across the rev range, even at high elevations and up steep grades, with few downshifts. The optional exhaust brake helps control downhill speeds with a full load. We find it smooth, solid and confident, a delightful diesel.

If you don’t carry or tow big loads, the base 2.5-liter engine, with its 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, will probably work for you. It’s acceptable for medium-speed urban duty. You can get it with a manual transmission, however the 6-speed automatic works well with the four-cylinder engine. Now you have a car that can haul stuff.

The Toyota and Nissan four-cylinder trucks get better fuel mileage and Tacoma dominates in durability and rugged-terrain capability, but the Colorado is a far better choice for the kind of driving and infrequent hauling that a lot of truck buyers do. The Colorado is a much more comfortable truck and it’s nicer to drive than the Tacoma or Frontier.

The new ZR2 uses active dampers, developed with the experience from decades of offroad endurance racing, and even Formula 1. They are named Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve dampers supplied by Mulitmatic. The technology is also used on the Chevy Camaro ZL1. The reaction time of these dampers to deal with wheel movement is astonishingly quick.

We found the ZR2 drives very nicely around town, ours equipped with the diesel. We haven’t driven one off pavement yet, but the suspension feels extremely capable and we have no doubt it will deliver. The Goodyears have aggressive tread on the edges of the sidewalls for traction in muddy ruts.

Walk Around

The Chevy Colorado doesn’t have the relentlessly rectilinear lines of the full-size Chevy Silverado, nor the fat grille of the GMC Canyon, overkilled by chrome. The Colorado’s rising shoulder line softens the pickup silhouette with boxy fenders. The grille is slim and relatively small. The Colorado looks like a truck, a good-looking truck. It does not look like a Honda Ridgeline.

The ZR2’s front bumper is trimmed for clearance over rocks, and its wheels are pushed out. It looks planted, despite the lifted suspension. The hood bulges. The ZR2 is clean, avoiding the aftermarket look. It classes up any off-road gathering.

Interior Overview

“”

In the cabin, the Colorado is like the Silverado, rugged and upscale, with a fit and finish that’s better than that of the Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier.

It feels plenty truck-like inside, but there’s an element of sedan in the well-finished dashboard, the seat bolstering, and aluminum-look door and dash trim. The beefy steering wheel has lots of controls. The shift lever is mounted on a wide and tall console that can store an iPad, while holding two big cupholders and up to four USB ports, along with many small storage slots, bins, and trays.

There’s excellent headroom and legroom and a big view out the windshield. The front seats are relatively skinny, and have a more natural driving position than other trucks in the class, with a higher hip point and a more ergonomic relationship to the steering wheel, unlike the splayed-legs stance you have to take in the Tacoma. The Colorado is far more relaxing to drive for trips longer than an hour.

The rear of the extended cab is a pair of jump seats best suited for packages or child seats, or maybe kids. The crew cab offers cramped accommodations for two adults in the back seats, with bolt-upright seatbacks and a marked lack of knee room. Keep that in mind when you’re thinking of making it a second family car.

The bed is a big selling point. The payload is 1410 to 1590 pounds, while there’s an available bed extender that stretches the six-foot bed to eight feet, as big as a full-size truck, by using the tailgate. The step on the bumper makes it easy to climb into, and the slow-dropping tailgate will be appreciated every day. There are some 17 points for tie-downs, either a spray-in bedliner or a drop-in one, and available cargo dividers, a system of racks and carriers, cargo nets and tonneau covers, and a drop-in toolbox.

Summary

“”

The Chevy Colorado offers a strong powertrain, good looks, convenient cabin, smooth ride, and decent handling. We think it’s best in class, the best truck among midsize pickups. We like all of its characters: from simple four-cylinder stick-shift Work Truck, to second family car, to high-tech offroad monster.
