2015 Chevrolet Colorado: First Drive

we're Here In Southern California Where We've Been Given A Chance To Drive The New 2015 Chevy Colorado And We Want To Find Out After Waiting Two Years For This Vehicle To Come Out Whether This Is Going To Light A Fire In The Segment Or, If It's Just Going To Be Another Midsize Pickup Truck Competitor Let's Take A Closer Look The 2.5 Liter Four-cylinder Engine Is Available On All Configurations 200-horsepower A Hundred Ninety-one Foot-pounds Of Torque And Fuel Economy The Automatic Transmission Two-wheel-drive 20 Miles Per Gallon In The City 27 Miles Per Gallon On The Highway For A 22 Combined Number How The Manual Transmission Which Typically Gives You The Better Fuel Economy Numbers For $YEAR 4 Cylinder Pickup Trucks Is Just The Opposite Here With These 19 In The City 26 On The Highway, But Also Has A Combined 22 Miles Per Gallon Some Of The Cool Features With This Engine A Lot Of Heat Dissipation Technology Here Around The Exhaust Manifold And Also On The Intake Side A Huge Resonator To Muffle As Much Of That Typical Buzzy Four-cylinder Engine Noise We Get With A Lot Of These Midsize Pickup Trucks One Of The Issues We Think Some Four-cylinder Customers Are Going To Have With This Engine Combination Is How Far They Have To Reach In To The Dipstick And The Oil Filler Cap As Far As How Well This Four-cylinder Drives We Cannot Talk About It Enough Way Better Than The Competition In This Segment Maybe Even Better Than Some Of The V6 Is That Are Out There As Well Off The Line, If You Put Your Foot In It It's Going To Respond Very Very Smart Transmission And The Standard Ringing Pinion Gears For Ten. So, You're Going To Get That Jump, But There Is An Optional 342 So, If You Want To Get Great Fuel Economy Out Of Your Pickup Truck This Might Be The Package It's Pretty Easy To Visually Distinguish Between The V6 And The Straight Four-cylinder Engines On The V6 Big Huge Plastic Covering To Help Dissipate Heat Better And Also Protect People Inside The Cab For Many Random Engine Noises There's No Big Huge Resonator Like There Is On The Four-cylinder Engine, But The Engine Itself Is Still Mounted Back In The Engine Compartment.

So, That The Center Line Is Over The Front Wheels For Better Ride And Handling One Of The Things That We Do Like Better On The V6 And The Four-cylinder It's Quite A Bit Easier To Get To The Dipstick And The Oil Filler Cap Are Driving Impressions Behind The Wheel Of The V6 Very Impressive In Fact This Has Got To Be The Segment Leader From Now On Mainly Because Of The Refinement Refinement Is The Key Word With This New Truck Very Smooth Around Town, But Doesn't Mind Being Pushed As Well To There's Some Kind Of Shift Logic Inside The Transmission We Keep Coming Back To This Transmission That Figures Out Kind Of What You Want To Do Whether It's Stretch Out Some Fuel Economy Numbers Or Get Really Playful At The Stop Signs Are At The Stop Lights Were Very Impressed We Also Had A Chance To Talk A Good-sized Boat And Some Watercraft And Found The V6 Plenty Strong Enough To Halt Without Any Problems, But Be Warned The 7,000 Pound Max Towing Capacity Requires The Trailer Package Otherwise The Trucks Rating Is 3500 Pounds As Far As The Interior The Word Of The Day Is Refinement How One Surface Area Molds Into The Next How The The Gauge Cluster All Works Together And It's Very Easy To Read From The Driver's Seat Also How Much Storage There Is Both In The Doors In The Center Console And How Comfortable And How Sporty The Transmission Shifter Feels Whether You're Just In Drive Or Whether In Manual Position That All Of This Is Working Together Much Better Than It Ever Has Before And Dare. I Say Much Better Than Anything Else In This Segment On Extended Cab Versions Driver And Passenger Front Seats The Seatbelts Are Incorporated Right In To The Rear Door That Means Nobody And Back Gets Out Until Front Passenger's Remove Their Seatbelts And Open All The Doors Also The Rear Door Only Opens 90 Degrees That's A Little Disappointing Rear Passenger Space Isn't That Bad Even For An Adult As Long As You Have The Front Seats Moved All The Way Forward It's Relatively Comfortable Crew Cab Models Come In Two Different Wheelbases To Accommodate A Six-and-a-half Or Five And A Half Foot Bed, But As You Can See The Rear Seats In A Crew Cab Much Better Than The Extended Cap And A Lot Of Attention To Detail Both For Power Outlets And Storage One Thing That Everybody Interested In Pickup Trucks Will Appreciate About This Truck Is That Chevy Engineers Of Stuff Everything They Learned About The Chevy Silverado Half-ton Pickup Bed Technology Into The Smaller Truck Not The Least Of Which The Soft Rock Tailgate The Corner Bed Step And 17 Different Locations Around The Bed For Tie-downs. So, That's Our Impression After Our First Drive Opportunity With The Chevy Colorado There Is A Lot To Like About This Truck Both In The Four-cylinder Version And In The V6 Very Impressive Truck, But Let's Be Honest The Bar Is Not Set Very High In This Segment In Fact For Any Of The Competitors Nothing Significant Has Been Done For Almost 10 Years Maybe This Is The Push These Are The Products That Are Needed In Order To Generate A Little Excitement And Get A Little Investment From The Other Midsize Pickup Truck Players.

So, For Right Now For Different Trim Levels Base Work Truck LT And Z71 Ranging In Price From 21,000 On Up To 35,000, But, If You Want More Details And More Dr Impressions From Us Go To Pick Up Trucks. Com Yeah.
