It seems like trucks continue to get bigger and better every year and the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado is a prime example of that. With clever features inside and out, this mid-size pickup truck has more power, more speed, and a more intuitive interior that’s sure to delight drivers.
Under the hood is Chevy’s latest engine improvement: the LGZ V-6 with a 3.6-liter displacement. The redesigned six boasts an automatic deactivation of two cylinders when the load is light enough. When you add this to the 308 horsepower and 275-lb-ft of torque, this truck can save the engine from working overtime when it doesn’t have to and makes the vehicle more responsive when you need it.
Another upgrade in performance from previous Chevy Colorado models is the new 8-speed automatic transmission. The Hydra-Matic 8L45 provides smooth and zippy shifts between gears, and the addition of two extra gears means the engine rpm stays near the torque sweet spot for longer giving you peppy and responsive driving whether you’re in the city or on the highway.
Inside are comfortable and supportive seats in the front and rear. The slimmer physique of the body means the interior is a bit cozier and it puts all the buttons on the infotainment system within easy reach. With available heated leather, power everything and chrome details, you can load this bad lad up with goodies to make it the power-packed, luxurious ride you’ve always wanted.
