The Colorado has a new V-8 option on extended and crew cab models, standard Stabilitrak stability control, improved braking, better fuel economy, and a number of new features for 2009. Solar Ray tinted glass is now standard on some models and XM Satellite Radio is newly standard on all Colorados. Appearance-wise, wheel designs have been completely revamped, while Z85 models get what was previously optional as a Sport Appearance Package. All models now have a body-color front fascia, body-color moldings have been reconfigured and the Z71 Off-Road model gets a new grille design. Work Truck models now include carpet and cloth seating.
Roomy crew cab; standard stability control; available V-8 in a compact truck, fuel economy with four-cylinder; affordability of basic models
The Colorado isn't as refined or quiet as some of its competitors, but it stands out in the market as one of the most fuel-efficient pickups available, and if you keep the equipment simple it's one of the most affordable. With so many different configurations, it's easy to find one that suits you best, and the longer six-foot bed is among the longest available in its class.
