2016 Chevrolet Colorado Walk Around


The Colorado stretches and pulls the truck shape into a good-looking vehicle. With its smaller slimmer grille and soft rising shoulder line, the Colorado is not as in-your-face as are full-size trucks like the Silverado. The fenders are boxy enough to still say truck. It’s a global design, and that makes things tricky. The shape has to appeal to buyers from San Diego to San Salvador to Sumatra.

Interior

Inside, the Colorado is more like the Silverado, roomy and rugged, with better finish than 2015 Tacoma and Frontier. It feels like a GM sedan in the seat bolstering and aluminum-look door and dash trim. The beefy steering wheel has lots of control buttons, the center console with a shifter is wide.

It’s not roomy in the back seat of the crew cab. Okay for child seats but cramped for adults, in upright seatbacks with not much knee room. At least it will be quiet. Indeed, the Colorado is far and away the quietest pickup in its class. It seems quieter than a lot of cars and SUVs as well.

There’s a step on the bumper to get up into the bed, a tailgate that’s easy to lower and raise, and no less than 17 tie-down spots. Bed creations are numerous, from either a sprayed bedliner or a drop-in one; with cargo dividers, the GearOn racks and carriers, cargo nets, tonneau covers and toolboxes.
