2020 Chevrolet Colorado review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 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 and turbo-diesel engine team with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the gas V-6 pairs with an eight-speed automatic.

Off-road enthusiasts should take note of the ZR2 and 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. The Colorado is very similar to the GMC Canyon.

What’s New on the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado?

A key fob-operated tailgate lock is available and the truck gets a tire fill alert system.

What Features in the 2020 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 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.

2020 Chevrolet Colorado Vs. 2020 Ford Ranger: How Do They Compare?

Both the Colorado and Ranger are good choices among mid-size pickups with more than adequate power, payload and towing capacities. The Colorado offers more engine choices, including a diesel, while the Ranger is only available with a turbocharged four-cylinder. The Chevrolet also has a nicer, more modern interior. We’ve noticed an annoying low-speed vibration in multiple Rangers we’ve tested, so be on the lookout for it if you take one for a test drive.

Should I Buy the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado?

The small pickup truck class has gotten more competitive with the return of the Ranger, but the Chevrolet Colorado remains a good truck that’s worth a look thanks to its variety of engine choices and impressive capability. The Colorado ZR2 was our Best Pickup Truck of 2018, and its off-road prowess, power, interior space and connectivity continue to impress. On the downside, the gas four-cylinder is a bit sluggish and the truck is short on active safety features.

Not a good value and over priced....

This truck came with the LT package that is over priced for what you truly get. I put a new bedliner, running boards and topper on the truck to get it the way I wanted, without having to pay the exorbitant price the dealer wanted for the extras...you should not need to buy top of the line to get the extra safety features either that are standard on most imports...


Vibrates at 60 miles an hour

Colorado LT 4x4 is not as good as a full size truck. The interior is made cheaply. the v6 engine has enough power. The 4x4 works Ok. But my complaint is it vibrates at higher speeds and the ride isn’t that great. It’s a bumpy riding truck.. I complained to the dealership about the vibration and ask for warranty work and they said it’s not a warranty problem. I complained to GMC and they didn’t respond when I told them the problem.



In Calgary we had 2 major snow storms so far this winter season. While driving. Snow accumulates on the ground and some snow stays on the rims. This a normal event for all vehicles when it snows. So on BOTH occasions: Snow stuck on the rims and the vehicle sat overnight outside in -15 celsius. The next day I drove the COLORADO speeds of just over 100km/hr The truck began to vibrate in the back of the truck excessively. I was surprised so I slowed down to 70km/hr and vibration stopped I thought there might be ice under the vehicle so I parked the COLORADO In a heated underground parking. The problem was gone. On the Second occasion same vibration. This time, I checked the rims and there was hard snow on the passenger side back rim. I have never had vibrating problems at 100 km/hr except with the 2020 COLORADO. So there’s either a problem with the back rim or the balancing in the back. It’s a new vehicle. It’s not modified in any way. It’s all original. Including the rims and Tires These are my comments and concerns.
