The Colorado is very easy to drive in daily traffic and makes a good useful travel vehicle. Even though it has the short box I have been able to take along all the stuff we want when exploring either on a long trip or weekend adventure. The biggest plus is the gas mileage it provides, it beats the prior truck by 3 MPG! Plus the Chevy MyLink is an easy to use system once you learn how to interface with it's features.
It's a great truck, it's American, and it's got sweet all around performance. 250hp and 25miles to the gallon on the highway, with a towing capacity of 2 tons. Show me any other American made vehicle that can compare to that? Even the foreign midsize trucks have a tough time competing with those numbers. I've driven this truck for 2 months now, put about 3k miles on it and have no complaints about anything other than the interior which really isn't that bad, it's just a tad uncomfortable on an 8 hour road trip for my 6'4'' 275lb body. and the quality of the door panels on the inside isn't that great either but they should hold up. The worst thing about the truck is the TERRIBLE factory stereo and speakers that sound like they are blown, even with the bass turned all the way down. I plan on getting a GPS/Receiver and some aftermarket speakers to replace the JUNK currently sitting in my truck. Overall though you just can not beat this well rounded and sturdy truck, it's got all the power I need and I can still parallel park it in some tight Chicago spaces. The 4 wheel high setting is perfect for gravel roads in the north woods of Wisconsin, I've gone 45mph around corners and the truck does nothing but GRIP, of course you can always take it out of 4x4 and the back end gets nice and loose for some fishtailing fun. the 4 wheel low mode is perfect for climbing wet, grassy hills, or anything steep... haven't used it much but it feels SOLID. Just like Chevy says; it's like a rock.
The truck is easy to handle, runs very smooth and quiet.; I love the extra doors to get into back seat and also the storage places under the seats. I enjoy the ride it provides.
