2016 Chevrolet Colorado | CarGurus Here's Why the Chevy Colorado ZR2 Can Actually 1 day ago   05:40

Midsize pickup trucks offer some advantages over their full-size brethren, like improved fuel economy and the ability to actually fit in city parking spaces. But start shopping around for these svelte trucks and you’ll quickly realize that you’re probably going to have to pay more for a smaller truck than a similarly equipped full-size. The Silverado has a home at the job site, but the Colorado can navigate cities and be a great truck for bikes, kayaks, lawn equipment, or camping gear. You don’t always need a huge one, but a good pickup bed is a great thing to have.

The Colorado is on par with the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma on price. But those import trucks are long in the tooth, have older engines and chassis, and lack infotainment systems as good as Chevy’s MyLink. And the Colorado and its cousin, the GMC Canyon, are also the only two midsize trucks sold in America with a diesel engine. With all these attributes in mind, it’s easy to see why someone would pay a premium for a midsize pickup, especially when it has been as good as the diesel, Z71 version of the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado.

Nice truck 👍👍🔧

They said this truck neatly costs as much as the larger Silverado. What a ridiculous statement. The price of your truck includes all of the options purchased. Yeah, purchase the Bose speakers (more than $500) and all the other options and you will pay a lot for this truck. So what? Want a cheaper truck, then don’t buy very option.

I bought a 2016 v6 midnight edition I paid 50k tax in. It was a lot higher then I wanted to pay, but I live in the city. Its an awesome truck to be taking into under ground parking and even a regular parking lot as you have a few extra inches (compared to a full sized truck) on ether side of the truck which is actually a big deal... I've since put 25K on the truck and haven't ad a single hiccup with it. Unless you're using your truck for work and hauling everyday you really don't need a full sized truck. It doesn't actually make you're thing bigger... lol

I bought one brand new, my link did not work, no heat, put itself into four wheel drive!

3 years from now this truck will be in the scrap yard. American trucks and cars are all junk. Every year they built them with new engine because their are crap especially the ecoboost engine nothing but problems. Please don't waste your hard earned money on American junk. Get a Toyota Tacoma and 30 years from now it will still be on the road and it will worth than that crap.

Very unreliable truck

I definitely want to step away from my full size Ford F-150 7700, reg cab, 8 foot bed, triton v8. Way too much and too big. I'll give it some time and when I have the money I may just jump on the Colorado

The 300 + horsepower engine is underpowered? My ass....In what context? Towing a mobile home?

Can the Chevy Trailblazers return to the US to?

I love how all the reviews have the most expensive package and complain about price. The WT with the V6 and a decent amount of extras cost a little more than 25K brand new from the factory.

It'd be nice to get reviews on trucks from people who actually use them to do more than move a TV home from the store now and then.
Bruno TaTa
It does not cost as much with similar equipment. The full size with a decent enough engine to move the weight will be $6000-$8000 more unless it's a leftover model with huge rebates, which doesn't really count, does it?

Mine was 2015 Z71 Colorado V6 4X4 Crewcab, paid 37 grand, its way cheaper than a TRD Sport Tacoma. I had 30K kilometers and its rock solid.

i think its funny that people always say these mid size trucks feel under powered, 309 hp shouldn't feel under powered. although i guess it depends what youre comparing it to. compared to a v8, yes, compared to a 4 cyl, no. ive never had a problem with how the v6 engines performed, and i've worked at many dealerships and driven all sorts of vehicles. Trust me when i say 300 HP is more than enough to give you good passing power on the road

Power locking tailgate?!??!
Claude Chiasson
I bought this exact model and I'm thrilled with it. paid 40900 CDN with identical options (they threw in a bed extender as well). Didn't need a fullsize and the truck drives like a dream.
Jason Carpp
It's unforgivable that you have to pay more to buy a smaller diesel powered truck than you would to buy a full-sized truck. Why is that? That doesn't make any sense. I like the idea of a 2.8 litre Duramax turbo diesel, but seriously?! I like trucks like the Toyota Tacoma, except for its lack of a turbo diesel engine.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are about $5K more than a comparably equipped Toyota Tacoma. I think this is the very key reason the Tacoma remains the best selling mid size pickup in the US.
