Drivers find the handling of the Chevrolet Colorado Truck serviceable, though not exceptional, and the ride isn't as smooth as other similar vehicles - though those are priced higher. The exterior looks tough - competitive with others in its class - though the engine doesn't pack the promised punch. The compact size is attractive, and there are plenty of features to make this an excellent value for those who need the utility of a pickup but don't require the means to haul heavy or frequent loads. The inline engines are powerful and smooth, though they don't offer ideal acceleration from a dead stop. The ride is fairly bumpy and noisy, making this more of a work truck than a leisure vehicle. Bad roads, dirt roads, and no roads are unpleasantly jarring for passengers.
The Chevrolet Colorado Truck is offered with exterior colors, including black, navy, summit white, aqua blue metallic, inferno orange metallic, victory red, dark gray metallic, and sheer silver metallic. Color options for the interior include medium pewter vinyl, ebony deluxe cloth, light cashmere-color deluxe cloth, ebony leather appointments, and light cashmere-color leather appointments.
The interior of the Chevrolet Colorado Truck is designed with basic utility in mind. Plastic surfaces are not attractive, but they are easily cleaned. Controls and knobs are extra large - convenient for those wearing work gloves. For those that need space for three passengers, the 60/40 split bench seats are wide enough for two adults and a child. For a more comfortable ride, many opt to replace the bench with two front bucket seats. Basic interior features include a tilt steering column, as well as the convenience of Bluetooth connection, cruise control, and air conditioning. The stereo has an in-dash CD player, as well as AM/FM and satellite radio.
Features include a Power Convenience Package, providing power mirrors, an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, power windows, and power door locks, as well as remote keyless entry. The Chevrolet Colorado Truck has standard side-curtain airbags, as well as other safety features, such as OnStar service, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and daytime running lights.
