We expected the Colorado to wear some version of the highly rectangular facia that Chevy's larger Silverado trucks have, but were surprised to see heavy influences from the automaker's sedan models. Park it next to a Malibu or Impala, and the styling DNA would be even more apparent.
At launch, Chevrolet will offer the Colorado with a choice of two engines. The 2.5-liter gasoline 4-banger outputs 193 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, while a larger 3.6-liter V-6 bumps output to 302 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
Though Chevy is claiming that the Silverado's cabin will be the quietest in class, it doesn't look like anything to write home about. Like a truck should, interior appears to be functional and simple. However, the pickup will be available with Chevrolet's newest OnStar and MyLink infotainment.
