While this version of the Chevrolet Colorado represented the first redesign of the model in 11 years, the fact that it topped the class was due more to the mediocrity of its competitors than to its inherent excellence. While we really want to like this truck, we just can't. The 305 hp V6 is short on low-end torque and the ride quality is rife with choppiness and jostling. Interior quality is low as well. On the positive side, the 3.6-liter V6 has a lot more power than the base four-cylinder engine, yet its EPA numbers show little drop in fuel economy. If you plan to tow a trailer, look for one with the trailering package. However, desirable safety equipment, such as forward-collision warning, is only available with the Luxury package and leather seats. Updates for 2016 include Apple CarPlay and an available 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine.
