5 reasons to buy the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado

1. Potent power

Don't be deceived by the 2019 Chevy Colorado's midsize status—this pickup isn't lacking guts. Right out of the gate, the 2.5L four-cylinder, which comes standard on Base, WT, LT, and Z71 trims, pushes out 200 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft. of torque. With an estimated payload capacity of 1,440 lbs. and an estimated 3,500-lb. max tow rating (2019 models), this rugged little road-warrior makes a great delivery truck or tool hauler with the 2.5L engine when properly equipped.

Stepping up to the 3.6L V6 (standard on ZR2, optional on Base, WT, LT, and Z71 trims) will get you more muscle with 308 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, along with an estimated 7,000-lb. maximum towing capacity and an estimated 1,574-lb. payload capacity when properly equipped.
That's full-size capability but in a more agile package.

2. Sips fuel and packs torque

Looking for a well-rounded pickup with rugged diesel performance? The 2019 Colorado offers an available Duramax 2.8L turbo-diesel four-cylinder that generates 181 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. With this durable cast iron engine anchoring the truck, the 2019 Colorado can tow an estimated 7,700 lbs. when properly equipped.

It matches this power with an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway (2WD models).

3. Roomy inside and out

The long bed can hold a maximum of 49.9 cubic feet of cargo or up to eight-foot lengths of lumber by opening the tailgate, which is very good versatility for a midsize pickup.

This trim boasts rugged features, such as front and rear electronic locking differentials and a special dampening system that ensures an exceptional ride, along with large all-terrain tires with big fender flares, so you can travel where you want to go. There is also a one-touch terrain select for desert, mud, or mountains to customize off-road performance to suit the conditions. With nearly two inches of front and rear lift and a 3.5-inch wider stance, the 2019 Colorado ZR2 is the midsize pickup to quench your thirst for adventure.

5. In-truck technology
