Detail Review 2010 Chevrolet Colorado (Truck)

This pickup truck is developed and manufactured at GM's plant in Rayong and Sherveport Louisiana. Colorado is available with both manual and automatic gear transmission. 2010 Colorado compensate for its fault via affordability and wide variety of power trains. This pickup model from Chevrolet faces some challenges from Dodge Dakota, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. National base price of 2010 Colorado is around $ 16, 985 which excludes destination charges.

The Chevrolet Colorado is Chevrolet's entry in the compact truck market. The only engine available in this light truck is a 2.9 liter four cylinder engine. In opting for a large displacement four cylinder configuration, Chevrolet tried to capture the fuel economy inherent in a four cylinder engine, while also capturing the horsepower of a six cylinder engine with the larger displacement. And most drivers and critics agree that this truck's engine is a good blend of the two attributes. The 2.9 liter four cylinder produces one hundred eighty-five horsepower at five thousand six hundred revolutions per minute, and, befitting a truck, it produces one hundred ninety pounds of torque at two thousand six hundred revolutions per minute.
The Environmental Protection Agency has rated the fuel economy of the truck at eighteen miles per gallon in city driving, and twenty-five miles per gallon on the highway. The powerful engine gives the compact truck a payload capacity of one thousand four hundred and eighty four pounds, and a towing capacity of four thousand pounds when fitted properly. While performance is not normally the first thing that comes to mind when buying a pickup, the automobile compares well with the competitors in its class. The truck accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour in nine and six-tenths seconds, and covers the quarter mile in seventeen and three-tenths seconds with a maximum speed of eighty-three miles per hour. Whether for performance, towing capability, or payload capacity, the vehicle competes very well against the competition.
