Performance Specs

The 2018 Colorado comes standard with a 2.5L 4-cylinder that delivers 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. It also enables the Colorado to achieve an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG.1

For more power, there’s the 3.6L V6 that puts out 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. And for higher fuel-efficiency, there’s the Duramax® 2.8L turbo-diesel that lets the truck achieve an EPA-estimated 22 city/30 highway MPG.2

The Chevrolet Colorado can tow up to 7,700 pounds, when properly equipped. It can also let you travel off the beaten path with ease. The ZR2 trim level has front and rear electronic locking differentials that help you climb the hilliest terrain. And the off-road chassis and Multimatic™ DSSV shocks help provide grip on any road surface, offering on-road handling and off-road comfort.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

The Chevrolet Colorado offers many state-of-the-art technology features to help keep everyone on board connected and entertained.

The truck offers a Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system to see all your media options on a 7-inch or 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen. You can use Bluetooth® capability to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls. Or, you can connect a compatible smartphone to the vehicle through Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. This will display your music playlists, text messages, navigation, and more on the color touchscreen.

Plus, with the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, up to seven devices can be connected to the internet, no matter where you travel.

Advanced Safety Options

The Chevy Colorado helps keep you safe in potential collisions with features that work to prevent, protect, and respond.

First, it offers many driver-assisting features that help prevent accidents from occurring. Some of those features are…

  • Lane Keep Assist: If you begin to unintentionally drift from your lane, the system will help gently nudge your steering wheel to help prevent lane departure.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert: Radar sensors will detect other vehicles approaching from either direction and will send a visual warning when your car is in reverse.
  • Forward Automatic Braking: If the system detects an imminent front-end collision while following a vehicle, it can automatically apply the brakes for you.

If a collision were to occur, the truck will help protect you with its standard 10-air bag system, that includes a front center side-impact air bag. There’s also an available 360-degree smart sensor system that can adjust inflation according to the severity of a collision.

Plus, there’s the available OnStar® with Automatic Crash Response feature. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who will immediately connect to your truck to see if you need help. Even if you don’t respond, GPS technology can pinpoint your exact location so emergency services can be sent right away.
