Colorado shoppers can select from one of three engines at Dave Kirk, depending on trim. The base engine is a gas 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, making 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The most popular engine is the 3.6-liter V6, which makes 308 hp and 275 lb-ft. Chevy also offers the Colorado with a Duramax Diesel engine. This 2.8-liter turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine makes 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
Both gas and diesel 4-cylinder engines route power through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The V6 engine comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to the rear wheels or available 4-wheel-drive (4WD). When properly equipped, the turbo-diesel Colorado can tow up to 7,700 pounds.
If you’re more into off-roading than towing, the ZR2 is for you. Available with either the V6 or turbo diesel engine, it adds a 2-inch lift and an overall track that’s more than three inches wider than the standard Colorado. The ZR2 also adds upgraded off-road bumpers, 31-inch off-road tires, underbody shielding, and electronically locking front and rear differentials.
The ZR2 Bison Edition at Dave Kirk takes things even father onto the trail. Developed with help from off-roading outfit American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), the Bison features unique wheels, custom bumpers, and custom wheel moldings.
The most efficient configuration of the Colorado is the turbo diesel with the 6-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive (RWD), returning 20 mpg city, 30 highway, 23 combined. The ZR2 comes with the gas V6, 8-speed automatic, and 4-wheel-drive. It returns V8-like fuel economy of 16/18/17.
Trims for the Colorado include Base, WT, LT, Z71, and ZR2. The Base trim includes a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and six speakers. One step up from the base trim is the Work Truck, shortened to WT. The V6 engine is available along with other options, like a rear locking tailgate. The LT is where you start to find additional features, such as a WiFi hotspot, two additional USB ports, HD radio, satellite radio, and a larger 8-inch infotainment touchscreen.
The Z71 at Dave Kirk has long been a designation for more off-road-oriented trims. In addition to some upgraded chassis equipment, it adds remote start, a heated steering wheel, automatic climate control, front and rear parking sensors, and wireless device charging. The range-topping ZR2 adds even more off-road equipment.
There are also a number of special editions of the Colorado. These include the Redline, RST, Custom Edition, Midnight Edition, Dusk Edition, and Midnight Special Edition.
The Colorado comes standard with a reversing camera, a host of front and rear parking sensors, traction control, and Chevy’s Teen Driver system. The last one allows parents to monitor their teen’s driving behavior, as well as set volume limits for the stereo.
