I have been personally driving trucks for over 30 years. Honestly, I am a full size truck guy. But the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup truck that offers a great balance of capability, comfort, and value. It’s available in a variety of trim levels and configurations, so you can find the perfect Colorado to meet your needs. The Colorado really has a look of its own that gives you the big truck look in a midsize body and has a bold and muscular exterior design. It features a wide grille, chiseled fenders, and a sculpted hood. The Colorado is available in a variety of exterior colors, including black, white, silver, gray, red, blue, and green and has a variety of exterior trim options. The WT trim is the base model and has a more basic exterior appearance. The LT trim adds more features, such as chrome accents and fog lamps. The Z71 trim is designed for off-road use and has features such as skid plates, off-road tires, and a raised suspension. I actually took it off road and found it to be very capable of taking on a pretty serious off-road trail, with ease. The Trail Boss trim is even more off-road capable and has features such as a factory-installed lift kit and a wider track width. The ZR2 trim is the most off-road capable Colorado and has features such as a high-performance suspension, off-road tires, and a locking rear differential. The interior of the Colorado is comfortable and spacious, with seating for up to five people. The interior materials are high-quality and durable. The Colorado is available in a variety of interior colors, including black, gray, and brown. The Colorado also offers a variety of interior trim options, such as the WT trim has a basic interior with cloth seats and vinyl trim. The LT trim adds more features, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and power windows and locks. The Z71 trim adds even more features, such as heated front seats and a leather-wrapped shift knob. The Trail Boss trim has a unique interior with water-resistant seats and floors. The ZR2 trim has a performance-oriented interior with sport seats and a red accent trim. Safety is certainly central to the construction of this truck, including Automatic emergency braking, Lane departure warning, Forward collision warning, Rear cross traffic alert, Blind spot monitoring and something I have not heard of, Teen Driver mode.
When it comes to performance, the Colorado is powered by a turbocharged 2.7L inline-four engine. The engine is available in two different power outputs: 237 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque and 310 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The Colorado is available with either a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive system. The Colorado also offers a variety of fuel economy ratings, depending on the trim level and powertrain configuration. Here are some examples of the fuel economy ratings of the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado. WT trim with rear-wheel drive and 237-hp engine: 20 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, LT trim with four-wheel drive and 310-hp engine: 19 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, Trail Boss trim with four-wheel drive and 310-hp engine: 18 mpg city, 22 mpg highway, ZR2 trim with four-wheel drive and 310-hp engine: 17 mpg city, 20 mpg
I really enjoyed the ride of the Colorado. For being a smaller truck, it had the stability and ride of a much larger truck. The interior in my opinion was a nice for a truck, making the Colorado is a great value for the money. It offers a lot of features and performance for its price. The Colorado is also very fuel-efficient, making it a great choice for everyday driving. The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is a great choice for anyone looking for a versatile and capable midsize pickup truck.
