Chevrolet Colorado Review

1947 was the year when the all-american Chevrolet first stepped in to the market of producing pick-up trucks , since then the brand has produced almost eight of them and still it accounts a good hold in the sector. After Chevrolet- SSR, LUV, S10, the brand added a new name in the list of compact pick-up trucks- “ Chevrolet Colorado”. Only embedding a diesel engine like most of pick ups in the market, the new Colorado comes in three different engine variants embedded- LT 2.5 MT, LT 2.8 MT and LTZ 2.8 AT. In order to make it more brutal, the brand has launched its all-muscle version too by the name of - “Colorado Muscle Power” which comes in two versions- Muscle Power AT and Muscle Power MT.
Out of three inline 4-cylinder Duramax engines of Colorado, the LT 2.8 MT and LTZ 2.8 AT (only difference being of transmission) churns out the maximum power worth 180 hp at 3800 rpm while the 2.5-litre (LT 2.5 MT) doesn't really disappoint either drawing out a maximum power measuring 150 Hp at 3800 rpm. When it comes to mileage the LT 2.5 MT delivers an average mileage of 11.9 km/l. On the other hand the Muscle Power MT churns out 193 hp at 3800 rpm delivering an average mileage of 10.8 km/l. The Colorado goes for a figure of 100 km/h in 10.2 seconds (LT 2.8 AT) whereas the Muscle Power does it in just 10 seconds, which is no less than amazing for a dedicated pick-up truck. The mighty Muscle Power attains a top speed of 180 km/h whereas the standard Colorado goes for 193 km/h.
Interior of the Colorado is no less than a standard mid-range SUV, providing plethora of comfort modules the truck holds its place as a segment leader. The monstrous exterior with dual port grille and bulky airdamps gives it a beastly look. Modular seating of the Colorado provides a variety of seating postures to the driver as well as passengers. The innovative storage compartments enables one to store basic amenities used during travel. Hill Descent Control System (HDCS) and Hill Start Assist (HSA) enables one to cope with high altitude drivings. Electronic Stabilty Control (ESC) in coordination with Traction Control System (TCS) maintains the stability of the vehicle by providing equal amount of braking pressure to all four wheels. The Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA) equipped in the truck provides extra braking force during sudden braking. The safety steering wheel cushions itself automatically under collision. Use of double wishbone suspension at the front and half-oval steel leaf spring at the rear with gas shock absorber minimizes the risk of understeering and oversteering. Car alarm and immobilizer system provide ample safety against thievery.
