Great Truck, Forget the Touch Screen

First off, I'm a guy that uses a truck. I've had many, and buy them for actual work...home and/or towing. Last truck (the one I traded in on this puppy) was a 2012 GMC Sierra X-Cab set up for towing a travel trailer. We are pausing the camping / trailer duty, but I still need a truck. Didn't want the full size version. In short, this is a great medium sized truck. Wish it was a bit smaller, lower, but overall it fits me well. A trip to Chicago from Peoria got me 22 MPG. That's not the trip computer, that's old fashioned miles divided by gallons method. It is fairly comfy, roomy, and love the 7,000 lb tow rating for the V6. Here are the negs: The 305 claimed HP is only at the very top of the RPM range. Trucks should have grunt....I'd happily give up MPG for more grunt. The engine feels weak until you lay in it, but even then its kinda numb. The transmission shifts fine....I know others complain about it hunting gears...and it does. But I mostly drive it like a car, even when towing a utility trailer, so I've not had quite the issues others had. Again, I'd pay more and sacrifice MPG if the XSMN held gears longer, and the engine had more grunt, but it works "okay" as is. Biggest complaint: The worthless infotainment system. In IL, it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving. Yet, I can nearly hit a pole while trying to figure out how to change a radio station. I dislike touch screens to the fullest. My phone has bluetooth, but will not pair with the radio. Guess what? TOO COMPLICATED. I prefer a good CD player....and they offer none in this truck. I knew this going in. Why do new cars / trucks think we need a complicated device in the dash to distract us from a simple station change....done in the past via moving your arm and doing it by feel. No longer! Now, use a touch screen, which has no feel, to go thru menus. Painfully stupid. I sound negative, but in reality I really like the truck. I've used it as a truck and will continue to do so. And, it hauls my kids. Looks good doing it. Engine and trans are fine...and will be better when I install a custom tune to hold gears longer and adjust a few things. Radio (I just can't call it infotainment) works, and music on USB sticks is okay, but not the same as CD's. I got a great deal on closeout '16's which is why I have the Z71 over the lesser models with more normalized radio. $5,400 off sticker just for walking in. BOTTOM LINE: I bought this over the Tacoma due to towing capacity and rebates / price.

Cool Colorado

I purchased my Duramax Colorado in May 2016 and have 16,800 miles on it. Fuel economy is 28-32 on the highway (higher at 65mph...around 38) and 26-27 in town. The engine is SUPER QUIET and has tons of torque for anything you want to do. Interior comfort is really nice for front and rear passengers and the entertainment package and navigation is fantastic. It's $40-45 to fill up and go for 550-600 miles on a tank. I do a lot of highway driving and the truck is perfect. It hauls up to 1500 lbs and can tow 7700 lbs, although I've not had to tow anything yet.

Listen, I have no complaints about the mechanical functionality of this truck. In fact, I think it's great as far as that is concerned. My caveat is if you are buying the laser blue color truck, be very careful. When you look at all the pictures of the laser blue on the Chevrolet website, it definitely appears as a terrific and great looking blue. Even in person at the dealership at night, or on a cloudy day, or if the sun angle is shining just right it will also appear to be the same terrific blue. What you might not realize though, is that this blue quickly turned to Barney purple with a 45 degree change in light refraction. This laser blue color is an un advertised two tone paint scheme. Sometimes it will look totally purple, and sometimes it will look the prettiest magnificent electric blue you have ever seen. Just don't get duped. Chevrolet makes no effort in the vehicle specs to describe this two-tone paint scheme. And all of the pictures on the Chevrolet website show the truck is a beautiful blue. And if you go to the dealership at night or on a cloudy day, you will not see it either. Chevy even calls this color "laser blue". I believe this is false advertisement and very deceptive to buyers. I can't imagine people that ordered this truck online, just for it to show up and realize they have a purple truck half the day. I'm not saying anything is wrong with a purple and blue truck. If that's your thing, go for it. But for someone that thinks they are buying a laser blue truck due to Chevrolets false advertising and deceptive ploys, they will be in for a terrible surprise. Listen, this is a great pick up truck. It looks great as far as the lines, and it performs outstanding. The price point is excellent. But that blue to purple transition is a huge surprise to a lot of buyers. I will be trading mine in next month and I haven't even made the first payment. It was a $3000 mistake that will cost me in depreciation value. The only other complaint that I have about the truck is that if you get one, get one with the sidestep. The truck looks good being raised up, but that step out it's about 6 inches short for me and I always have to slide off the seat before I hit the ground. I am about 5 foot 10.

Perfect not so basic, basic truck

I'm probably one of a few to get the LT with the 2.5L gas engine. I was just not impressed by the 3.6l enough to pay the premium. The LT package adds the larger screen for the center console. It's worth every penny of price difference. Apple car play gives you navigation for free, calling, streaming, talk to text, all work great. I've put 16,000 miles on in about 7 months. The truck rides wonderfully, it's easy to park, and has enough room for the home improvement work. Of those 16,000, 2000 miles were spent towing a car across country. The little 4 did great, lost some speed on the longer grades but on flat ground no complaints. Around town I average 22 mpg, 16-18 towing and about 25-29 on the highway unloaded. For doing work around the house and on cars it has a ton of well thought out features. The corner steps on the bumper make getting in and out easy. The storage under the back seat is big enough for tie down straps, hitch, and gloves. The GM roll up hard bed cover is a must have addition. It keeps whatever is in the bed dry, but can be rolled up to haul tall things. The short bed is small but still big enough to load a pallet full of floor and shut the tailgate.

Great truck

Mpg not as good as I thought, but overall very nice truck. For the money I could've bought a silverado but tired of driving a big truck for what I use it for. Kids have plenty of room and they feel comfortable in the rear seats. Overall, very good truck. Not as small as people think but it's not a gas guzzler like my old tundra

I have a 2016 LT crew cab colorado (4600 mile) with leather heated seats and lots of accessories (linex bedliner, chevy folding tonneau cover, chrome package, sliding rear window w/ defrost, engine braking system, wheel well liners, projector headlights, mylink navigation, lane warning, forward distance warning , & chrome step bars with rainforest green metallic paint. I downsized from a full size crew cab 4x4 silverado (2011). I really like the truck. On the downside - no cd player, center counsel a one hole accessory with no dividers, door storage areas narrow but okay. The "touch screen" okay but I am "old school" and learning curve is somewhat uphill but not difficult. Get the Chevy Mylink navigation system vs On star. Once the Onstar test period expires, the Chevy Mylink nav system is fully operational and accurate. I do not have requirement for Sirus radio or On Star. Highway and interstate speeds no problem. Cruise control excellent. Gas mileage very good (v6). you will not be disappointed with the 2016 Colorado.

Converted from Tacoma and have never looked back

Before buying my 2016 Colorado in October of 2015, I was a committed Tacoma owner. I drove a 4wd Tacoma crew cab for 12 years and really loved it. But when I went to look at the 2016 Tacoma, the dealers only had 2015 models in stock and they did not come close in comparison to the Colorado. My mileage is a lot better than my Tacoma was (averaged 18-19 mpg); over the last 11 months I have consistently gotten 22-24 mpg. I admit I have a light foot, although I routinely travel 70 mph on the highway. The key is to avoid sudden accelerations. I have also been happy with the deeper bed (check it out - the Colorado bed is several inches deeper than Tacoma), the dampened tailgate and the step bumper, which makes it much easier to get up into the bed. I also bought the custom ladder rack that Chevy offers and have been very happy with it. It's super-sturdy and carries something like 800 pounds. The 4wd system has also worked great on trips to NH, VT and other snowy places. The only thing I don't like about my Colorado is the plastic shield that's bolted to the bottom of the front bumper. Obviously, it's designed to improve gas mileage, but it scrapes when I go off-road and even once when I pulled up to a concrete parking curb. On the plus side, if I want to take it off, it would be easy to do (just a bunch of screws) but I have been too lazy to remove it. I've had no mechanical issues and the display/electronics inside are really first-class. I admit to having had some jitters when I first bought it, since I have really been a Tacoma fan, but I took the leap but it has paid off so far.

Seems to be a great truck. 2.8 Duramax, Crew, LT

I was sold on this truck for a few primary reasons - mpg and durability of the duramax. I've run my gas powered vehicles to 300k miles and beyond consistently and i see no reason why this engine can't far exceed this number. I've had the truck for only a few days now and have been impressed so far. I'm especially pleased that being 6'6"/230, i still fit comfortably in the driver's seat (though the headrest/top of seat hits my neck area and will take some getting used to). My crew cab F150 and prior silverado did not provide this luxury. The inferno orange color certainly grabs attention. Can't wait to get a month under my belt to see what the true mpg will be but after 2 days the OBC shows 24 mostly city driving - impressive. The torque this thing generates makes you feel as though you could unroot a 100 year old redwood with little problem. Was a little worried about this engine being that it's so new but after researching it appears that it's been in use over seas for a few years so hopefully all the kinks have been worked out by now.

I love the truck! Not only is it great looking, but with the 6 cylinder engine and 4 wheel drive it can handle anything I may need it to do. The electronics are impressive and it will be difficult to decide which of the subscriptions (satellite radio, WiFi, etc.) I should keep after the trials end. I do have an unresolved problem with inconsistent air conditioning performance, but I am confident my dealer will correct.

I will start with the pros on my Colorado Z71. First thing is first, the truck is beautiful. Its a head turning vehicle and easily catches the attention of others , it did for me. from the front to the rear, the truck looks luxurious but rugged. Chevrolet found the sweet spot with this design. The bed is coated with a hard lining and also has plenty of room for cargo. the truck comes with a 2" hitch connection, and a 3 piece rear window. When sitting in the Driver seat I have great visibility around the entire vehicle, its very east to maneuver, but for those who have a hard time backing into parking spaces it comes with a reverse camera and reverse guide shown on the main screen on the front panel. the interior of the truck is great , and very comfortable. I am 6'2" and fit fine in this light duty truck. The seats are lined with leather and with the dark window tint , stay very cool. The steering wheel has a great feel and from the driver seat I have a solid view of all the instruments and screens in the truck. there is plenty of room inside the truck for passengers and small cargo if needed. The power of the truck is great , I wont say incredible but for a light duty, its great. This is where the Cons come in. Ill begin with the acceleration of the truck , its not bad, however I feel the transmission is very sluggish and has trouble deciding which gears to use when starting its acceleration and when beginning to decelerate from speed. The Gas mileage and range is also exaggerated, what was suppose to be 22 city 31 hwy, is really 14 city 25 hwy. If I would have knows this prior to purchase I would have went with a Silverado. I just hit 450 miles and the Bose sound system is rattling in the passenger door. When I drove it off the lot I didn't have this problem. I believe its the door panel making the noise, rather than the sound system. My last con on the 2016 Colorado Z71 would be the front wind guard, it sits very low to the ground with a few inches of clearance, Understanding this is a luxury truck, its still a Z71 OffRoad, and with no clearance in the front, It limits where you can go and what you can do without taking it off and getting the front of the tuck lifted. Overall I want to give the truck 5 stars, though i just hit 450 miles and still have to brake it in. So far it has treated me very well and I'm looking forward to keeping this truck and making the most of it.

Bought this truck on a Wednesday took it back to the dealer with electrical issues Saturday. Dealer has had ever since. More than 2 weeks as of this post. Dealer support is average GM support is piss poor. I really like the truck but this is not acceptable. GM needs to do better at standing behind its products. After all it was we the people that kept them in business they should take better care of their customers/owners.

I have the duramax, but there was no input for the dmax. love the truck, love the power and fuel mileage. only thing I don't like about the truck is that it wants to hold lower gears running up into higher rpm's which is the exact opposite of what every other gm vehicle likes to do. I think if it shifted sooner I wouldn't have a single complaint.

Nice Color!

I purchased this truck back in May. I was in the market for a new truck and wanted to downsize from my F150 I owned for about 8 years. I like the laser blue, which depends on the sunlight, gives off a purplish hue. Looks pretty darn good with the WT package. The fuel economy is pretty decent for a 4 cylinder; much better than 17 mpg I got in the F150. You do have to step on the accelerator to get it to move when entering the freeway. I hear the same thing about its 6 cyl. brothers, so it doesn't really bother me. It's surprisingly comfortable on road trips, and my 13 yr old son loves it....as long he's not in the back seat. The extended cab isn't great for carrying passengers in the back, but I didn't buy the truck for that purpose. This is my go to work, weekend trip kind of truck.

After 5000 miles of ownership with this new Duramax, and the "honeymoon" period now well in the review mirror, I can say that most of the professional review articles you will read from Chevy's pre-launch media event and test drive weekend in Solvang California are accurate, so I will try to add a few points from an owner's perspective without duplicating much of what has already been widely conveyed from many reputable magazines, blogs, etc. First, if this is your first ever diesel vehicle you have owned or driven, it will seem noisy at idle and low speeds. If you have previously owned diesel vehicles, it will seem very quiet at idle and low speed driving. At highway speeds, you will hardly notice a difference in quietness and refinement between the diesel and gas options. Second, it is a dog off the line from a dead stop. Period. (think turbo lag). However, beyond 15-20 MPH, it is in some ways nicer than the gas options (and I drove all engines extensively before buying).... smooth and punchy without any wailing, hi rev drama. Truly satisfying. Great passing. If you are looking for a "racetruck", buy the V6 or something else. The Duramax is just adequately smooth. As for MPG, the vehicle's trip computer is overly optimistic, although its true MPG is within close specs of the EPA's rating. For example, I have had mellow 60MPH highway runs where, after 300-400 miles, the trip meter reports around 32 MPG, yet a real check with a calculator at the gas pump revealed around 30 MPG. Still not bad, just do not buy into many of the anecdotes you will read from owners/reviewers reporting outrageous fuel mileage above and beyond the EPA's rating. (Remember, people love to boast and justify their hard earned money spent). Also, there is some harsh grumbling that emits through the firewall after the truck is well warmed up, at a dead stop, with the transmission engaged (sitting at a stoplight). This harshness is not consistent, but rather intermittent, yet will cease as soon as you start moving again or if you take the transmission out of drive to park or neutral. The Apple CarPlay Infotainment has been "glitchy". I sometimes get screen freezes, and my Pandora Playlist will sometimes only show up partially. Once, the whole touchscreen went completely dark for about 15 minutes, and shutting the truck off, locking the doors, walking away, restarting etc. did not cure it. It just somehow came back up, so I hope my first service visit to Chevy will reveal that there may be a software/firmware update. All in all, these are the extent of my complaints, weighed against an overall very satisfied experience with this truck. Again, it is not perfect, but then also, we consumers have become very spoiled in our expectations of what cars should be these days. The Z71 heated seats with lumbar adjustment are great for my bad, post surgery back. The control layout is very functional, and the overall feel (door slams, no squeaks, rattles etc.) is superb. Conversely, as a long term fan of the Toyota product, I rented a 2016 Tacoma and drove it 100 miles, trying to love it, and I couldn't. GM lured me over, as they proved, in my view, that they were the hungry underdog seeking to knock off the Tacoma. I believe they did just that. I just hope this truck proves as reliable as the Tacoma over the years to come. We shall see.

I took a chance and went with the 2.8 duramax. Pros; Power,mileage, towing its got it all in one package! The best feature is the engine brake, when towing 5000lb in the hills you will rarely touch the brakes. I have 5000 miles on the truck and have averaged 25 mpg most of that towing at highway speed.I've got 30 on the highway! It has better than V6 gas Power!! Cons; The front air dam is stupid!(I took it off the second day i owned the truck and they used 16 screws to hold it on that are impossible to get at Laser Blue can look Purple not happy with color

Idles rough occasionally, sometimes feels like a V6 sometimes like a 4 cylinder. Engine hesitates then eventually accelerates, transmission does not always down shift so feels sluggish at times. Have taken it to the dealer and they cannot find anything wrong, they say that is normal for this vehicle!!? I really like this truck except for the inconsistent performance. I would not have purchased this truck if I had known it runs this way. Any ECU mods for this truck?

I have almost 1500 miles on my 2016 Colorado Ext Cab V6 and I love it! I've driven around town averaging 19-20mpg and highway speeds at 55-60 mpg it averaged 24.5-26 mpg and highway speeds at 70-80 it averaged 23-24mpg. The trans has been very smooth and I have not had issues finding any gears or stepping on the throttle to get around a horse and buggy without it slamming into a low gear. The transitions have always been flawless. It loves cruising in the 50-60 mph range but on the highway keeping it around 70 you have to keep you foot on the gas just a little, personally it does not bother me. From the line it feels quite torquey and has plenty of get up and go. From inside the cabin the ride is phenomenal. It's very quite, I've been in quite a few new vehicles and none have been quieter. The handling is as smooth as can be. The steering wheel never gets heavy no matter the sharpest turns. Even having the off road suspension the ride isn't stiff at all. It handles bumps and does not rattle or bounce around. Driving it you would not think it has stiffer suspension. The interior itself I think looks nice and it's a truck so i'm not looking for outright luxury. The extended cab truly does not have room for passengers comfortably, although I bought mine more for storage than to haul people, so that does not bother me. Also size wise, this truck can be parked anywhere! The turning radius is amazing, just when you expect it to run out of turn angle, you can crank the wheel even more and put it into any parking spot. The cabin room I think is plenty, not as much as my dads Sierra 2500 but i'm 5'11'' and my dad is 6'2'' and there is plenty of room for both of us in the front seats. Leg room and head room are more than enough. Overall i'm very satisfied with my purchase and don't regret it one bit.

When I bought my truck it had side runners on it. The dealer asked if I wanted them on I thought I would try them. As soon as i got home anf got out for the first time they were very uncomfortable. Called dealer he was trying to tradee something for them then said no. Now I have $700 to runners in my garage

Purchased a new 2016 Colorado to replace my commuter vehicle 2007 impala with 185,000 miles , truck has 2000 miles and left me stranded. blowing fuse on injector bank on left side of 3.6 gas engine, dealer working on resolution . the trucks front power driver seat is uncomfortable on 2 hour drive as seat bottom doesn't tilt , I know its a truck but my 2002 Silverado crew cab seat beats it hands down. The 4x4 shift button can be bumped into 4x4 with your knee and no light on dash to indicate its engaged. Transmission shifts hard up and down in upper gears. Its a great looking truck but very concerned about reliability on having electrical issues this early on , I may trade for a Silverado Pros truck gets good mpg , easy to park and drive in the city.

Get the diesel if you want hauling and towing capabilities and great fuel economy. The diesel was not available when i got my Colorado Lt V6 I wish i waited for a while because they have great deals on the diesel engine version and less on what I paid for my regular V6 truck. Overall you can't go wrong with the Colorado truck in any configuration it does what it does well and in comfort with great refinement in a mid size truck.

Can you believe that there is no visible indicator in the instrument cluster showing the current state of the 4 wheel drive system. You have to look at the selector switch located low on the dash and blocked from view by the steering wheel. I've owned 3 other vehicles with 4 wheel drive and this is by far the worst. Shift in or out can be harsh at times. Low mounted switch is often hit by my knee when exiting causing selector to be switched to 4wd. Seats have hard edge that is too high and is always felt on entry and exit. Vehicle leans to drivers side be 0.75 inches at rear wheel opening. Dealer says that's within tolerance.

In Love With My Rain Forest Green Chevy Colorado

I've always owned a full size truck. But now that I'm retired, I felt I no longer needed the additional size or expense. My wife & I were looking at a Toyota Tacoma, but it didn't offer power seats. When we saw the Colorado in Rain Forest Green in the Z71 Off Road package with so much luxury, we knew it was the truck for us. The ride is smooth, engine is powerful, seats are heated with leather trim. We love everything about it. We also added several Chevy accessories at the dealer without searching other stores or web sites.

One of the best mid-sized trucks, but not perfect

Overall, the truck is great. Chevy nailed the looks. It's tough, rugged and modern and does a great job of making it stand out on the road. The interior is excellent, but large drivers might have some time adjusting the seat to get it comfortable. Some issues with the motor... In normal drive mode, you have to mash the pedal to the floor to extract power out of it. The power is there, but the pedal calibration is there to soften power delivery and help improve fuel economy. Pushing the "tow mode" button helps, it changes the throttle response and shifting patterns on the transmission. It's essentially a renamed "sport" mode that you would find on a car. I drive in tow mode exclusively. Have your dealer install the 2" front leveling kit so that it doesn't look it is standing on it's nose, and makes the truck look balanced. You can throw a set of aggressive off-road 265/70-R17 tires on the stock rims without clearance issues once you do the leveling kit. Lifts it a little more, and makes it look balanced. The air damn under the front bumper needs to come off if you want to take this off road. Look at every picture of the truck in stock form. You have this 305hp off road package truck, and yet that plastic trim will hit a curb in a parking lot. Removing that and installing the leveling kit($400), gives the front end a lot of clearance for moderate off road capabilities... This truck, once set up, has great off-road potential. It will also haul more than any other truck in it's class. Overall I am VERY happy with my purchase. Got the Crew Cab, Z71 4x4 with Bose 7 speaker audio, NAV, spray in bed liner, heavy duty tow package, tinted windows, side steps, etc... for $37k You get a lot of truck for the money, Chevrolet did a great job on this model and that's why it is Motor Trend Truck of the Year, 2 years running. It's not perfect, but I rate the overall execution of an 8.5 out of 10.

I have had the truck about 6 weeks. Nice looking truck inside and out. Shortly after buying I noticed the front seat back moves so I took it back to the dealer. They said nothing was broken. They compared it to other trucks and said it was normal for this truck. Not liking the answer I took it another dealer and they said the same thing. I have a hard time with this. I have a call into GM and they don't seem to care. There was a recall on the 2015 for a loose seat but nothing happening on this one. I have never experienced this in any other vehicle.

Let me start out by saying I absolutely love the 2016 Colorado! We traded in our 2009 Traverse for our 2016 Colorado in an effort to both downsize (we are empty nesters) and prepare for some more than casual towing (we have a boat and are planning on getting a camper). The Traverse had limited towing capacity, which was really impacting what we could buy in the way of a travel trailer. It also had limitations for cargo hauling, especially if the cargo was oversized and could not fit in the cargo bay. We looked at a GMC Canyon and was wowed by the options (especially the leather), but we also wanted a truck that we could do some work in if required, so the Colorado Z71 trim better fit the bill. It is a much quieter drive than the Traverse, with a comprehensive and fairly intuitive infotainment system. I do miss the CD player option, but with most folks going for digital downloads instead of discs, I do understand the move away from CD players. In the approximately 1990 miles we've driven it (300 of which was from the dealer driving it in from out of state), we've thus far taken in on a trip to Chicago and the performance was excellent. Obviously not the mileage of a Cruze or other economy type car, but comfortable in the mid 20s for mpg. The view seems to go on forever (my daily driver is a 2010 Camaro, with some serious view issues out back), and the rear backup camera is a huge plus. We opted for some after market accessories (floormats, soft cover, spray in bed liner, mud flaps, bed mat and running boards) which really decked it out. I recommend the running boards; short folks like my wife and I greatly benefit from the extra step in and out of the vehicle. The Colorado fits nicely in the garage with a little room to spare. I'm looking forward to years of service, hauling and towing in comfort and style with our new truck. I recommend the Colorado for anyone who is looking for a size down from the Silverado sized trucks. Update October 2016: If it's possible, we have fallen more in love with our 2016 Colorado than when we first drove it home. We have two other cars that we use for daily driving, so even this far into our ownership we haven't rolled 10K on the truck, but we have definitely gotten our money's worth thus far. It tows our boat with ease and makes running errands such as dump runs easy. It has become our vehicle of choice for road trips (shocking, since I drive a Camaro) and the functionality of the driver infotainment system really makes driving a joy. If you haven't driven one, I highly recommend taking one out for a spin.

Thought I was buying the best mid-size pick-up...

The hype does not justify the cost. It isn't worth waiting on a list to pay over MSRP. The front seat bottom cushion is so short it hits you mid-leg and I am only 5'9". Instrumentation... You can barely see the driver's cluster in bright sunlight even at full brightness adjustment. And the fuel gauge/radiator cluster is nearly impossible to see ever, even at night still vaguely visible. So if you run out of gas, you won't know until the engine stops. The windshield wiper feature for a spray and wipe only wipes one time after it sprays (pull back on lever to activate, one quick spray and one swipe...leaving washer fluid running down windshield and you have to push lever down again to get it to finish the job...how distracting is that when driving and trying to remove road grime? The sun visors are too short, and don't help at all when the sun is coming at you from the top left angle of windshield unless you invert the visor and then you hit your face on it. The glove box doesn't lock...enough said, this was a standard of any vehicle...ever! Gas Mileage, average 15-18 combined, nothing like Chevy states it will do. Cannot get ANY support from Chevrolet Customer Assistance/MyLink about Infotainment system, just get answers like " I'm not sure, hey wait, the guy I need to ask is just walking by, let me call you back..." And never called me back, more than once same response. Dealership same way, no return call so I guess once the deal is done, they wash their hands of you. The only good things are the Bose sound quality, not great but better than stock radio. And the safety features like lane departure warning and front collision warning system. Back-up camera image quality is washed-out almost impossible to see anything behind you even in shade with no sunlight hitting it directly, just bad equipment. And I bought American because of the lousy service from foreign import dealerships. I hope you read all of this review, since it may really help you not make the wrong choice. This truck looks great inside and out, but there are major flaws. Hope Chevy puts a "flash update" out for the poor rear view camera quality and hires some people that can actually give tech support for things nobody understands, including dealership, AND Chevrolet Customer Service support. On the hole it isn't what it seems. Chevy knows it, that's why they hype up this truck and keep pricing so high. Oh and look under driver's seat and see the rust already starting on the metal parts there. Was this because of the bad water issue in Detroit, that caused a ton of rust issues, yet did Chevy put those parts in anyway?? Lastly, the a/c has a mind of it's own, even when Auto Climate feature is not engaged, the a/c still runs in auto, meaning, the cold air stops being cold and you have to constantly adjust the digital readout dial to lower temp to get cool again, and air vents have very limited air flow adjustment, either you the driver freeze and nobody in back seat gets air, or you the driver bake to give backseat cool air. Oh, and also the accelerator pedal is so close to the transmission hump it can get dangerous if you wear boots, or work boots or just athletic shoes, boy was that a mistake! Plastic interior seems cheap and once the glitter faded from buying a new truck, it left me very dissatisfied.

Great Ride and Gas Mileage

I haven't owned a Chevy product in over a decade. This Colorado was eye catching at first, then I drove it and fell in love with all the amenities it had to offer. This truck has all the bells and whistles I had become accustomed to in my luxury cars and sports cars. It has not let me down in any of the areas that are important to me. Good fuel economy and plenty of get up and go. Leather and heated seats, Navigation, and Apple car play were all major necessities, and the Colorado delivered them. I recommend this truck to anyone looking for a mid size truc.

Love this truck! Trust me, if you like the V6 Colorado, you'll love the Duramax. Each time I drive it, I smile and know I made the right decision. Pulls trailers without issue. Internal break controller works great. Fuel economy can vary. Pulling weighted trailer at 75 MPH: low 20's. Normal driving at 60 MPH on flatter roads: 30+ MPH. My brother has one with nearly 14k miles. Does more highway driving, so his average is about 3-4 MPG more than mine.

I have the Z71 extended cab with the V6, with 6000 miles, looks great runs like crap. The truck is very under powered, I'm not sure where the towing 10K comes from I pulled small trailer with lawn equipment and the truck struggled with that small load, stayed in manual mode mostly. The running boards are for looks only, make getting out of vehicle hard, may sprain my knee someday. The XM radio goes out in the wide open space, no help from dealer on that one. The back up camera is continually lock screening, must turn truck off to reset. There is a lot of engine noise inside the cab. Also has recall on hood, that I am getting run around from dealership on, take truck there they say have part then told its on order, this has happen multiple times, Like some others have said I too sometimes think the hood is going to fly off. So you can understand my concern. Maybe Rick Hedrick should get off the track and back into his dealerships again, I wont be returning, and this after buying 5 vehicles from his stores. The fuel mileage is not that great best I have seen is 19, that was freeway driving. Do not buy this truck.

loving my new truck!

Have 3K on the truck so far and absolutely love it and have had zero problems. I am 6'2 and have no problem fitting in the truck unlike in the Tacoma and Frontier that I tested. I took off the silly air dam that took away ground clearance and put on a leveling kit. So far I've loved every aspect of the truck, especially the overall size which has been perfect for around town. The 4x4 system works great and gets you through any kind of terrain. Technology wise the truck hits the spot especially with Apple CarPlay and 4G LTE. You don't need to bother getting navigation or anything else if you have an iPhone (Android Auto coming soon as well). The only gripe I have is that the Colorado does not get the same soft touch w/ stitching interior as the GMC Canyon. All in all it's a fantastic looking and performing midsize truck.

I purchase a 2016 Z71 4WD black Trail Boss about three weeks ago and am loving it so far. I really like the trail boss package accessories like the off road sport bar and LED off road lights on top. The black painted wheels and aggressive all terrain tires seem to turn heads. I got all the options. Heated seats, navigation, Bose 7 speaker system, spray in bed liner, etc. I'm loving it so far. The technology in this truck is amazing. I especially love the apple car play feature that allows me to reflect my iOS device onto the in-dash display. The rear view camera is great with its line projections that show you where you're going to end up as you turn the wheel. I didn't especially like the price though. For everything, including the trail boss package (extra $7k), I ended up paying a little over 42k for the truck including an extended 72k mile bumper to bumper warranty. The only thing I don't like about the truck is its lack of responsiveness when laying on the gas. It takes a little long to switch gears, so I end up using the manual gear switching so that I can control when the truck shifts up and down. I'm glad it has this option. Over the course of 1,000 miles, I've ended up with an average of 17MPG. I'm a pretty aggressive driver though, so others may get better gas consumption rates. Overall, I'm loving the truck. I traded in my 2012 TRD Tacoma and don't regret it a bit. This is the best vehicle I've owned thus far. I can't give an accurate report to reliability yet or cost of ownership as I've only had it for a little less than a month. Don't get the 4 cylinder unless you drive like a granny. The v6 or turbo diesel are the only ways to go.

Bought the crew cab WT with the 2.5L engine, auto transmission, & only 2 option packages 2 1/2 weeks ago. Manual tranny not available. Like it better than my previous '03 X cab Silverado which had no engine holdback going downhill; this engine and tranny does. Has enough power for me, a senior, and my daughters appreciate that I am not zoom - zooming around with my trade-in; a stick shift Pontiac Vibe. Only major problem is figuring out the infotainment system which is not user friendly to normally perceptive folks. The truck fits in my garage; a 2015 Silverado X cab wouldn't. Once I install an after market soft roll up tonneau cover, bed mat, retractable tie downs, and 4 wire electric trailer connector for about $450 + tax, I will have a vehicle that will do everything I want.

I paid good money for the Chevy Colorado 4 dr Z71 off-road package. Within 2 weeks of owning the vehicle, the transmission went out @ just a little over 400 miles on the vehicle. The truck is very nice and I loved everything about it, but I am very disappointed that the truck almost left me stranded on the highway and was brand new.

Laser blue LT 4x4 Crew Cab. Good value with the options. Sluggish at times on take off and rough shifting staying up hill. Not quite enough room for an infant seat, toddler seat, and a 7 year old but good room for a "midsized" truck. A real pleasure to drive! Overall a very well built truck and something Chevrolet has hit a solid triple on! A solid truck that you will be happy with. The "2 year/ 24000 mile service agreement is a sham. That was very disappointing. It only covers 2 oil changes. Big negative for Chevy

Just purchased ( 2015 Black Friday) 2016 Colorado LT 4x4, with all the options, Rainforest green, with dark ash leather Got 10% off MSRP of $40K, and 1.99% 6 year loan Great looks, sharp interior, great size, fits in my garage and is easy to park, and has good turning radius. This truck has all the upgrades ( Conv and luxury package, plus safety package ) Ride is very nice, some sharp jolts on bad pavement. The one negative, the front seats are narrow, average comfort, but I love the heated feature, and that I can raise the seat Test drove the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, eliminated it, as there is no power seat option, and no way to raise or lower the seat. Too low of a seating position I spent over a year looking at mid-size trucks, and the Colorado is #1 in my opinion UPDATE: 6-14-16- now have 12,000 miles on Colorado, no major problems, still love the truck. One minor annoyance, and I hope Chevy fixes this in future updates, is the transmission. It is geared to search for lowest gear ( to get better gas mileage), but it makes it tough when you need quick acceleration, it hesitates too much. One thing I now do, is use the manual mode if I want the RPM"s up, as you can control what gear you are in. As far as looks, I get an average of 3-4 people checking out the truck, people will stop me, and ask about it. Definitely the best looking and unique truck in the market right now.

Was going to buy a new V6 Colorado until test drive this past weekend (Nov 27, 2015). Rides nice but transmission hesitates / stumbles badly when applying the gas. Going up interstate ramp or even around town. Real bad hesitation and totally unacceptable to the point you feel the vehicle will stall and hope somebody else doesn't rear end you. I asked the dealers agent riding with me about the hesitation and he didn't say one word. I won't be buying one of these.
