2011 Chevy Colorado Regular Cab Truck

2011 Chevrolet Colorado Review

(2 Stars)  A pickup without a future

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Chevrolet Colorado was only released 7 years ago and has become a very well known midsized truck in a short period of time. This heavy duty truck does not offer the storage room that you can get in a full sized truck, but its smaller size can allow for some simple conveniences while driving that would be missed in a larger utility vehicle. This is one reason that the market for the midsized truck has been growing so fast. Many truck owners love to have a bed to haul with, but are not looking for an oversized cockpit and a large vehicle to maneuver when they are on the road. This year's Colorado comes with the same 5.3L V-8 engine that has been offered for the last few years, but it does have an all new transmission.

This little brute can tow up to 6,000 pounds and has a small form factor to make parking a snap. The Chevy Colorado takes the best of both worlds and works it into a single truck that can be perfect for many jobs and is suited well for play too.
