The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado may be smaller than it’s full-size Silverado 1500 stablemate, but don’t underestimate this midsize pickup’s capability. The Colorado is ready and able to tackle any job you can throw at it. The folks at the Chinle Chevrolet dealership agree, stating that customers value the Colorado for its versatility and comfortable ride. Off-roaders love the Colorado’s ability to crawl over rocks and slog through muddy backroad trails. Of course, there’s no overlooking the 2020 Colorado’s impressive towing capability. Buyers looking for a capable truck who don’t need a full-size pickup should place the Colorado at the top of their shopping list.
According to the Chevrolet dealership in Chinle, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is offered in five main trims, listed as Base, Work Truck, LT, Z71 and ZR2. For a unique look, buyers can choose one of the special edition models, including the Colorado RST edition, Trail Runner and Redline Edition.
The automotive media gives the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado high praise. One example is Kelley Blue Book, which wrote: “Considering Chevy has been making pickups for decades and is one of the big names in trucks, it probably isn’t surprising to learn that the 2020 Colorado has a stable and well-planted ride, with sufficient punch even when the cargo bed is full.”
The Colorado’s base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that develops 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Buyers looking for more power can choose the available 3.6-liter V6 engine, which produces 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
If that weren’t enough, there’s also a four-cylinder turbodiesel powerplant on offer. It puts out 181 hp and a hearty 369 lb-ft of torque. This engine has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, making it ideal for anyone who needs to pull a trailer. The diesel engine delivers outstanding fuel economy. Rear-wheel-drive models get an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/30 mpg highway.*
The beauty of the 2020 Colorado is that buyers can get it at several different price points, configured for any number of uses. Standard features on the Base Colorado include a 6-speed manual transmission, vinyl seat and floor covering, a CornerStep rear bumper, cargo-box lighting, a locking tailgate, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7-inch infotainment display and two USB ports.
The Work Truck Trim offers the same basic feature set as the Base, but buyers can choose more available features, including the 308-horsepower V6 engine. Step up to the LT, and you’ll get 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel, an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio and rear parking sensors.
Off-roaders will appreciate the Z71, which comes with a dedicated suspension system, a locking rear differential and all-terrain tires. The ZR2 gets even more off-roading goodies, such as independently lockable front and rear differentials, Multimatic shocks and additional under-body protection. Other standard features include leather-appointed front seats, an integrated trailer brake controller and trailering assist guidelines.
