2020 chevrolet colorado

If you are looking for a truck, but don’t need all the capabilities and size of a full-size truck, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado, mid-size truck is something you want to look into. This 2020 has a lot to offer.

Model Options

The 2020 Colorado is available in five models. You can choose from the Base model, WT, LT, Z71 or ZR2. Then you can choose from, Extended cab long box, Crew cab short box, and Crew cab long box. 


This mid-size base Colorado seats 2 passengers, while the Extended Cab will seat 4, and the Crew Cab can seat 5. The front seats are roomy and comfortable. The high seating positions will be appreciated by drivers. The rear seats in the Extended Cab are a bit cramped while the Crew Cab model has enough space for adults. When getting in and out of the rear can be made tough because of the narrow door openings.  

Drive Time

Color me impressed by the estimated mpg for this truck. With its base engine you can get 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg  on the highway. Those numbers will dip to 18 city and 25 highway with the V6. Turbodiesel models are the most fuel-efficient option; they earn 20/30 mpg city/highway.   

If you are thinking about this truck for everyday use, you will be happy to know that those everyday drives won’t seem tedious in this Chevrolet. It will provide you with composed handling and an overall smooth ride. Because it is fairly easy to get through crowded parking lots and cluttered areas, it almost feels like you are driving a car at times. 

Take a look at the Colorado Z71 or ZR2 models. These are going to be more capable of tackling trailed and troublesome terrain. You can thank the hillside descent control, heavy duty suspension system, and locking differentials. 

We can’t forget towing. The capabilities will vary by powertrain. If the truck is equipped with the turbodiesel engine, the Colorado’s highest capacity is 7700 pounds. This ties for the top tow rating in the class. Close behind is the V6 powered models that have a max tow rating of 7000 pounds. A base engine Colorado is far behind with a max capacity of 3500 pounds. 

Tech and Safety

The Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system is standard in Colorado. It includes Bluetooth, two USB ports, a 7-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The infotainment is user friendly and works well. The controls are easy to reach from the driver’s seat and the menu layouts are intuitive.

This 2020 truck earned five stars in the side crash test, four stars in the frontal crash test, and three stars in the rollover evaluation. Standard in the Colorado are a rearview camera and Teen Driver system. Teen Driver lets you set speed and audio volume limits for secondary drivers. It can also monitor their driving performance. And another important safety feature is the new-for-220 reminder to buckle up before driving.  

Final Thoughts

Simply put, this truck seems fun…and safe. Not that those are the only things you need to consider when purchasing a truck but it is a good place to start. This truck can be used for work or everyday tasks. You can’t go wrong with a mid-size truck that gets that good of gas mileage. It seems that there are more pros than cons, so I suggest checking it out.
