A Closer Look at the Chevy Colorado

The Colorado offers a walk on the wild side with aggressive styling, dynamic traction control, and flexibility that is hard to beat. When it was first introduced in 2004, it was Chevy's answer for a midsize truck. It offered three trim levels, multiple bed configurations, and innovative safety and design features. Today's Colorado offers much of the same, as well as exceptional towing capabilities, improved functioning for managing cargo, and the industry's latest technological features.

Depending on the trim, it also offers enough ground clearance to tackle any terrain, allowing you to easily go wherever you need. In addition, the Colorado boasts a wider chassis and factory lift that provides better angling during the drive and selectable drive modes for increased confidence on rough roads. Not only that, but the Colorado offers excellent towing capabilities, making it a powerhouse work truck for when you need to haul equipment and supplies to and from the worksite—and with Chevy's dynamic trailering packages, you'll have all the stability and assurance you need.
