The Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup. Three engines are available: a 2.5L four cylinder, a turbo-diesel, 2.8L Duramax four and a 3.6L V6 gas engine. The latter provides an excellent towing capacity for this type of pickup, to the tune of 7700 pounds (3493 kg). Three special versions—the Custom, ZL1 Midnight and Shoreline—are available this year. There’s also the spectacular off-road ready ZR2.
