Love, Love, Love it!!

Just the right size and great comfort. Absolutely love this truck. We can get home repair supplies home easily and we can tow a wood splitter and trailer when needed. And then we can also just go riding long distance in comfort.

Great small truck

Love this truck. Looks good and drives good. Purchased this truck in 2011 and have had zero issues. Everyone complements the truck asking is it new.

first and most enjoyable truck

This truck is just the right size for both myself and my husband. We can tow what we need to, and we can just ride for fun. We now can bring home improvement supplies home easier and not have to sorry of how to get things home. The color and shade of blue makes it even more worth while. I just love this little truck!

Great truck for great price

I have owned my truck for two years and have not had to do any major repairs to it. Has 85,000 miles on it and still runs strong. I do a lot of driving for work so its reassuring to know that i have a reliable truck to get me around.

I love these things

This is the second Colorado for me. The first was a 2005. After 130,000 miles and nothing other than scheduled maintenance and normal wear replacement which is to be expected, I traded it in February 2017 for a used 2012 with only 38,000 miles. This is so far proving to be another great one, and I fully expect that after 130,000 miles on the clock I'll be out looking for another one. There is a good reason these are scarce in the pre-owned lots. I love these things.

A Great Truck all around!

4WD Extended Cab 5 cylinder engine, Z71 package. This has been so far a great truck with no issues. I mean nothing wrong after a little over 2 years. Also hauls a 4000 lb camping trailer around pretty well for its size, and its off road ability is excellent. Its also a really nice looking truck in its proportions and it handles well. No complaints except gas mileage when pulling a trailer but that's to be expected. Otherwise decent mileage for a 4wd mid size truck. Id buy it again and highly recommend it.

Simly a fantastic small truck

I currently own two pickups, both Chevy's. I have a 2007 Silverado Z71 4X4 and a 2012 Colorado LT1 Z85 4X4. I use my Silverado to haul a 28 ft camper and my Colorado is my daily driver and I use it to haul moderate sized loads. I find it equally at home with a bed full of wood off road as it is on the highway. Even though it is the Z85 it can still run around in the mud and climb hills with any Toyota out there. I have my Colorado lifted 3 inches with 32" all terrain tires and have yet to come across a mud hole I cant traverse or a hill I cant climb. Don't get me wrong, I don't pound the heck out of my truck but my job has taken me to plenty of places where the meek dare not tread. On the highway it is a very well mannered, comfortable and smooth truck. It is not fair to compare the ride to a car but for a compact truck it is the best I have ever owned. I have owned the truck since it was new and besides the customizations all I have had to do is routine maintenance. The 5 cylinder sounds a bit busy compared to my Silverado and it wont burn up any quarter mile tracks but it powers the truck down the road nicely and has proven to be very sturdy and dependable. I have always been a Chevy truck guy and my Colorado has done nothing but solidify my opinion. If you want a truck that is dependable, very capable off road, and comfortable to drive then the 2012 and older Colorado's are hard to beat.

Great Compact Crew Cab

Made in America with American Heart

This truck is the best value on the market today. I have been averaging close to 22 mpg on the highway with the 3.7 ltr engine.. 16.5 mpg on local driving. This truck is cheaper to insure due to the Onstar service that GM gives the buyer for the 1st 6 months. Had this truck for over a year. I do not have any regrets.
