Chevy's mid-size Colorado pickup builds on the brand's long history of manufacturing workhorse trucks. For 2017, it wears a more aggressive face inspired by its North American truck siblings. This rugged theme continues inside where it now features a boxier dashboard just like its Trailblazer sibling.
Under the hood are two four-cylinder Duramax diesel engines. The base 2.5-liter oil-burner makes 163hp and 380Nm of torque, it's mated exclusively to a manual transmission. The bigger 2.8-liter motor makes 200hp and 440Nm of torque for the manual transmission variants and a class-leading 500Nm for the automatic transmission variants. The Colorado is available with four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive variants.
