Chevy Colorado: The Mid-Sized Truck That Offers More

So, you're in the market for a truck, but don't quite need the power and size that goes along with a full-size model. Lucky for you that Alexander Chevrolet Buick GMC offers one of the best values in mid-sized trucks on the market in the form of the Chevy Colorado.

Think about it for a second:

Why wouldn't you turn to the automaker who's been making the legendary full-size Silverado for over 100 years when it comes to a smaller and more compact version of a truck? Silverado's quality and durability is beyond reproach and Chevrolet infuses that same high-quality craftsmanship in every Colorado they make.

The Colorado offers a more car-like ride and better fuel efficiency while still delivering all the utilitarian aspects of a truck that you could ever want. It's also chock-full of all the latest and greatest tech features. After all, many mid-sized truck owners in the Dickson and Nashville areas use their trucks for primarily everyday commuting purposes, and a comfortable/well-appointed interior is a must in this regard. If, however, you're looking to your new or used Colorado to be used as primarily a bare-bones work truck, Chevy offers options in that area as well.

Want to know the best way to determine if the Colorado is the right truck for you?

If so, we strongly urge you to visit Alexander Chevrolet Buick GMC for a test drive. This will allow you to get a real feel for how the truck drives and all the features/options it offers. Best of all, after just one conversation with our product specialist, you'll be pleased to know that we offer a variety of ways to save you money whether you are in the market to purchase or lease a Colorado.

What's Changed on the 2018 Colorado?

There are two big additions that Chevrolet has made to the 2018 Colorado and they come in the area of technology. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard equipment across all trim levels in the Colorado lineup. The factory also upgraded standard touchscreen size from 4.2-inches to 7-inches for the 2018 model year.

There are five trim levels to choose from in this year's Colorado lineup:

  • Base: If you are looking for the most economical option in the 2018 Colorado lineup, it's definitely the Base trim. It comes in extended cab body style only and is powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. Standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 7-inch touchscreen, 16-inch wheels and more.
  • Work Truck: This is essentially an enhanced version of the base trim that also is available in extended cab and crew cab body styles.
  • LT: The options and features become more numerous on the LT and include 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, leather wrapped steering wheel, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi.
  • Z71: This trim enhances luxury and off-road performance with all-terrain tires, off-road suspension, simulated leather upholstery, and other amenities.
  • ZR2: The ZR2 is the most off-road ready and equipped truck in the lineup sporting larger all-terrain tires, raised suspension, fender flares, spray-in bedliner, and more.

A Look Into The Past of The Chevy Colorado

The Colorado hit the scene in 2004 as a replacement to Chevrolet's long-running S-10 truck. The Colorado was actually quite larger in size that the previous S-10 model and borrowed styling hints from the full-size Silverado truck. The 2004 Colorado was offered in three body styles: regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab. In addition, it was also available in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configuration.

Five years later in 2009, Chevy made history by offering the mid-sized Colorado with a 5.3L V8 engine generating 300 horsepower. The Colorado actually ceased production in 2012, but returned to the market in 2015 due to consumer demand. It now ranks among the best values in midsized trucks on the market and shows no signs of a slowdown in the future.
