The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has the title of 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year. The new midsized truck also holds the number one ranking in its class at U.S. News and World Report. Calling all competitors outdated, Edmunds gave the Colorado a coveted A rating and put it at the top of its class in the critic’s annual shoppers guide. This smaller hauler looks the part of a heavy lifter. The build is brawny with a hint of the aerodynamics that allow this truck to get class-leading gas mileage. The beefy grille is offered in chrome or gunmetal. The bed sides and gate are so tall that they nearly match full-size trucks. With its emphasis on maximizing utility, the Colorado has a fully-boxed frame and triple inlaid doors. It’s easy to access the bed with the standard corner steps. These class-exclusive features are built into the Colorado’s bumper. An easy-lift tailgate is another plus for busy haulers. Shoppers can choose a crew cab with a five-foot bed, a crew cab with a six-foot bed, or an extended cab with a six-foot bed.

Performance

Drivers can pick between two class leaders in fuel economy. The 200-horsepower four cylinder engine earns 26 mpg highway. This beats the Tacoma’s four cylinder by 40 horsepower and 2 mpg highway. While cranking out a solid 305 horsepower, the Colorado V6 earns 24 mpg highway. Motor Trend noted that the Chevy Colorado V6 beats its class in the 0-60 sprint. Strong and sturdy, the V6 Colorado can tow 7,000 pounds. A tow-haul mode adds to its can-do spirit. The shorter body and tighter turn circle ensure maneuverability. Reviewers have noted that handling is nimbler than with other pickups.

Interior

Available in four trim levels, the Colorado has spacious cabins that make passengers feel at home. U.S. News praises the first-rate cabin materials and gives the truck its Best Truck for the Money Award. Edmunds writes that the Colorado’s interior is handsomely styled and, equally important, noticeably quieter than the cabins of rival trucks. The reviewer also notes that the cabin is bigger than rivals, offering more legroom on both rows of the crew cab. The truck offers numerous cubbies for organization. A 3.5-inch screen monitors your car functions. Power-adjusting front seats and other comforts are offered on higher trim editions.

Safety

During its inaugural year, the Chevy Colorado has been the only truck in its class to offer two critical crash avoidance features. The forward collision warning is a valuable asset when the leading traffic slams on brakes unexpectedly. The lane departure alert helps a drowsy or distracted driver stay out of harm’s way. If you compare the Colorado for technology, performance, fuel economy, or utility, you’ll find that it is a solid class leader.

Features

Chevy was determined to make the most modern truck available. That’s why a rearview camera is standard. Furthermore, most trims offer the 8-inch touchscreen. The Chevy MyLink system includes easy smartphone integration for more audio choices and hands-free phone calls. The Colorado is also the only midsized truck to offer WiFi connectivity.
