2016 Chevrolet Colorado Buyer's Guide

Now entering its second full year on the market, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado is the Bowtie brand’s next-gen mid-size pickup, providing the same proven approach to satisfying customers as the full-size Chevy Silverado, but in a more nimble and fuel-efficient package. The results haven’t quite achieved sales leadership in the segment, however, so Chevy is working to rectify the situation by extending its leadership role in pickup connectivity. After the Colorado debuted with 4G LTE connectivity and a mobile wi-fi hotspot last year, it adds Apple CarPlay for this one, serving up new levels of smartphone integration (for select iPhones). Folks should also remember that, despite its midsize proportions, the Colorado owns the segment crown for highest max trailer rating, at 7,000 lbs.

What makes it move?

The 2016 Colorado competes with a standard 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine—supplying 200 hp, 191 lb.-ft. of torque and an EPA line of up to 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway/22 mpg combined—and offers an upgrade to a 3.6-liter V-6 with 305 hp, 269 lb.-ft. of torque and an EPA high point of 26 mpg highway. Four-wheel-drive powertrains are available, as are six-speed manual and automatic transmissions, and Chevrolet promises that the Colorado will debut a 2.8-liter diesel during the fall of 2015.

Why buy the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado?

Chevrolet’s mid-size pickup is perfect for owners who don’t need the massive capabilities—and matching dimensions—of the brand’s bigger entries, but who still want a “real” truck, complete with multiple cab and bed configurations, as well as features like a standard CornerStep bumper, for easy bed access, and the EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate, which relies on an internal torsion bar and damper to more than live up to its name. Also notable: the Colorado is compatible with Chevy’s “GearOn” cargo management system, specifically designed to fit the truck’s bed and boasting a variety of dividers and tiered-storage solutions. The 2016 Colorado delivers those attributes, of course, but then complements them with available fancier features like heated front seats, premium Bose audio, and both forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning.
