T he world needs more small trucks. They’re easier to park and maneuver and cost less to feed than full-sized behemoths, like the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500. But then the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon twins came along with the first modern compact truck redesign in 11 years. GM had Rocky Mountain high hopes for this truck, and sales have been strong.

Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.
Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Satisfaction Owner Satisfaction To learn about satisfaction, CR has collected survey data from our annual survey on more than half a million vehicles. Our subscribers provide great insights into their satisfaction by answering one simple question: If they had it to do all over again, would they definitely buy or lease the same model? In addition, respondents also rate their cars in six categories: driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate systems. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2017 Chevrolet Colorado owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Transmission Minor

Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

What Owners Say

Gear selector or linkage

"Sometimes, after I put the truck in park, I would let go of the button on the gear and go to turn off the truck and remove the key. The gear selector button wouldn't quite spring to the full-out position, thus the sensor would read that the button was engaged, leading to being unable to turn the key to the OFF position to remove it. Fortunately, this happened within the bumper-to-bumper warranty, so ultimately the gear selector was replaced entirely. I'm told that there were enough people having this issue that GM incorporated a design change."

Anonymous, WA (2017 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 3.6-L V6)
Rough shifting

"Very, very sporadic & only happens after starting & driving after being parked overnight at my residence."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Chevrolet Colorado LT 3.6-L V6)

"Within two months the car needed a new water pump. After that, the shifting was so bad that they had to flush the transmission. That lasted two years and now it's shifting terrible again. It's a known problem and I think there might even be a class action law suite on it. This is my first truck but it will be my last CHEVROLET truck."

Anonymous, (2017 Chevrolet Colorado LT 3.6-L V6)

"I have the optional 8-speed trans. Very rough shifting in lower gears. "ËœShuttered' at highway speeds. Brought the vehicle in 3x. (1) - Replaced torque converter. (2) - Software update.

W D., DE (2017 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 3.6-L V6)

"It developed a common (according to several web forums) rumble strip-like vibration at light throttle cruise at 45 - 60 mph. The fix was a 3x transmission flush and fill with a new spec fluid. There was a TSB issued to address the issue. The problem has not reoccurred thus far."

Robert R., MI (2017 Chevrolet Colorado LT 3.6-L V6)
Transmission computer

"Engine shut down at 65-70 miles per hr. Could not reach a speed over 35 miles per hr. It did it over 3 times. Towed it to Dealer each time and they never admitted it was the same problem. Each time they said it was something different."

"The shift programming is horrible. This is an extremely good looking truck but it is the most frustrating vehicle I have ever owned. I was going to trade it at huge loss but my son suggested an aftermarket programmer. That has made all the difference in the world. It is now a keeper but it is the last GM car for me."

The dealership which fixed it gave me a loaner during the time mine was down - it didn't have all the options mine had but it was a new pickup to drive.

The dealer finally replaced the completed under warranty and problem has been eliminated.

What Owners Say

Heater system

"At one point, my HVAC system stopped adding heat, only blowing ambient air. As it turns out, the shaft that the blend door rotated about had broken off, thus preventing addition of heat to the air flow. Fortunately, this happened within the bumper-to-bumper warranty, so the work was done free of charge."

Exhaust

Muffler, pipes, catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, leaks.

Engine Cooling

Radiator, cooling fan, antifreeze leaks, water pump, thermostat, overheating.
