Buyers looking for a pickup that has the power to tow and haul loads, but who don’t need a full-size truck, will find the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado hits the sweet spot. The Colorado has lots of cabin space to keep the driver and passengers comfortable. And when you visit a dealer like the Salem Chevrolet dealership, you’ll find the Chevrolet Colorado is more economically priced than a full-size pickup.
The Colorado can be configured to meet every need, from a spartan work truck to a powerful off-road vehicle. The 2020 Colorado comes in extended-cab and crew-cab configurations as well as two cargo box sizes. According to the Salem Chevrolet dealer, there are five trim levels on offer: Base, Work Truck (WT), LT, Z71 and ZR2.
The Base Colorado trim comes as an extended cab with rear-wheel drive. Power is supplied by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque, connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Standard features include 16-inch steel wheels, power windows, a rearview camera, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery and floor covering, an infotainment system with a 7-inch display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a stereo system with six speakers, and two USB ports.
Colorado Work Truck
The Colorado Work Truck trim is configured much the same as the Base trim, except the WT comes in both crew-cab and extended-cab body styles. The WT comes with cloth upholstery and carpeting. Available features include remote keyless entry, cruise control, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, OnStar, an EZ Lift tailgate and a remote locking tailgate.
WT and higher trim levels can select one of the Colorado’s two optional powerplants: a 3.6-liter V6 making 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel unit producing 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque that’s paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel engine with rear-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 20/30 mpg.*
The Colorado LT trim gets 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel, more USB ports, satellite radio and an 8-inch touchscreen. Available features include heated front seats, automatic climate control, a forward collision system and lane departure warning. Starting with the LT trim, buyers can get an upgraded audio setup and navigation,
The Z71 is perfect for drivers ready to go off-road exploring. It comes with most of the available features of the LT trim, plus all-terrain tires, hill descent control, an off-road-oriented suspension, a locking rear differential and exclusive upholstery.
The Colorado ZR-2 trim takes off-roading to the next level. It features larger all-terrain tires, a raised suspension with unique dampers, an electronically locking rear differential, exclusive front and rear bumpers, fender flares and a spray-in bedliner. The Colorado ZR2 comes standard with the V6. The diesel engine is available.
