2019 Chevrolet Colorado Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

We put the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison and 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon through their paces at Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Ind., to see how they stack up off-road. Watch to see how they performed in the sand, on the rocks and more.

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado?

The Chevrolet Colorado mid-size pickup is available with rear- or four-wheel drive and seats up to five. It comes in extended-cab form with a 6-foot-2-inch bed or as a crew cab with a 5-foot-2-inch or 6-foot-2-inch bed. Three engines are offered: a 200-horsepower, gas 2.5-liter four-cylinder; a 308-hp, gas 3.6-liter V-6 or a 181-hp, turbo-diesel 2.8-liter four-cylinder. The base gas four-cylinder teams with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, the turbo-diesel works with the six-speed automatic and the gas V-6 pairs with an eight-speed automatic.

Off-road enthusiasts should take note of the ZR2 and special ZR2 Bison models with their advanced, lifted heavy-duty suspension, wider track widths, front and rear locking differentials and aggressive exterior styling. Colorado competitors include the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier and Ford Ranger, which returns for the 2019 model year. The Colorado is related to the GMC Canyon.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado?

The Colorado's available 7- and 8-inch touchscreen multimedia systems have been updated this year, and most trim levels get a high-definition backup camera (a regular-definition camera is standard). The available Safety Package now includes rear parking sensors.

For those who want to be able to bomb down a bumpy muddy forest road, climb rocks in Moab or fly through the desert, Chevrolet has teamed with American Expedition Vehicles to offer a new, rugged ZR2 Bison version of the Colorado. Based on the ZR2 model, the ZR2 Bison brings adventure-ready tweaks to the exterior, five skid plates to protect the truck's underside and exclusive 17-inch aluminum wheels.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado Are Most Important?

Standard features include air conditioning, power windows and locks and a power-adjustable driver's seat. The standard 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system includes Bluetooth streaming audio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. A larger 8-inch touchscreen and built-in navigation are available. Also available is 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period) to keep you connected on the go. The turbo-diesel engine includes an exhaust brake system to help reduce brake pad wear on steep grades. A few active safety features — forward collision warning and lane departure warning — are available.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado?

The small pickup truck class is heating up with the return of the Ford Ranger, and the Chevrolet Colorado is well positioned to win shoppers. We selected the Colorado ZR2 as our Best Pickup Truck of 2018, and the truck's off-road prowess, power, interior space and connectivity continue to impress. The gas four-cylinder is a bit sluggish and we wish more active safety features were available, but the Colorado remains a solid offering that's worth a look.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
