2016 Chevrolet Colorado Overview

The capable Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup that offers nearly as much utility as its full-size counterparts. For loyal truck buyers, this American pickup truck deserves your consideration - it is fuel efficient, sleek, and comfortable. Its truck bed is well-prepared for all weekend activities, but is still slim enough to comfortably park in cities.

2016 Chevrolet Colorado History

With the Colorado's latest update, the pickup now offers a diesel engine.

  • The first-generation Colorado was sold from 2004 to 2012.
  • For 2016, the Chevrolet Colorado is in its second generation, which was introduced in the 2015 model year for North American audiences.

How It Drives

On the road, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado feels smooth and comfortable. The Colorado has a spacious interior. It has plenty of room for storage and functionality across the cabin. This mid-size pickup truck also strikes a nice middle ground between being large enough to carry a bed and feeling comfortable enough to take to the office parking lot. Due to the pickup's heavy size, the standard four-cylinder engine may feel a bit underwhelming; consider upgrading to the available V6. It still feels bold and sophisticated on the road - the handling is secure, and feels fairly light around turns.

Used 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Value

The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado stands as a wise alternative to a full-size truck. It's a bit smaller, but just as versatile as a larger pickup with a bit less towing power. It's the best answer for anyone who needs to carry large cargo, but doesn't need quite as much torque as the likes of the Toyota Tundra. What's more, midsize trucks have improved fuel efficiency over full-size trucks and have an easier time travelling between different parts of a city.

Against its own car segment, the first-generation was held back by performance and comfort. This is not the case with the second-generation Colorado; it improved engine options and cabin comforts to be more aligned with what customers were looking for. It also has one of the sleekest looks compared to other midsize trucks, like the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier. Notably, the Colorado also gets the best fuel economy of its car segment. Overall, the Chevrolet Colorado is a great purchase within its class of cars.

Design & Performance

The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado is offered in two- and four-seat extended cab body style and five-seat crew cab body style. Body style access depends solely on trim style, so choose wisely from the following options:

  • The Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck (WT)
  • The Chevrolet Colorado LT
  • The Chevrolet Colorado Z71

The entry-level Chevy Colorado is offered only in extended cab body style. It features air conditioning, automatic headlights, a power driver's seat, rearview camera, and six-speaker AM/FM audio system.

Powertrain & Engine

Three engines are available for the 2016 Chevy Colorado. A 2.5L four-cylinder engine is standard; a 3.6L V6 engine is available as an optional upgrade. Also available is a 2.8L turbodiesel four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is available on base models. Higher trim-levels pair their engines with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Each engine produces different towing capabilities. The 2.5L four-cylinder engine can tow up to 3,500 lbs. Properly equipped, the V6 model can tow up to 7,000 lbs. The turbodiesel engine is capable of powering the Colorado to tow up to 7,700 lbs.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Chevrolet Colorado has a variety of body style configurations built into its option pool.

  • Buyers have a choice of a two- or four-seat extended body style.
  • It has a five-seat crew cab body style to allow for all levels of passenger space.
  • There are also two bed lengths to allow for more cargo.

Fun truck to own
Donald BARNETT | 12/12/2016
5
It is a good size truck even though it is clearly smaller than "1500" size trucks. I have found it to be a great compromise between size and ease of use. Since I live in a pretty dense urban area so it provides a lot of functionality without being difficult to maneuver around town.
