2012 Chevrolet Colorado Review

The 2012 Colorado is a truck for every situation. Select models can tow up to 6 thousand pounds and have a payload capacity of more than a ton. It’s available in Regular Cab Extended Cab or Crew Cab and the Colorado offers three distinct Vortec engine choices. The standard 2.9 liter I-4 is both powerful and fuel efficient. An available 3.7 liter I-5 engine offers better highway fuel economy than any V6 midsize pickup. Or kick it up a notch with the 300 horesepower Vortec 5.3 liter V8. Inside the Colorado you’ll be wrapped in comfort and convenience. Enjoy hands-free calling with standard Bluetooth wireless technology. A leather wrapped steering wheel with cruise control 60-40 bench seats climate control and more. Safety comes standard with StabiliTrak Electronic Control System with Traction Control and head-curtain side-impact air bags. The Driver Information Center displays important data on vehicle functions. An advanced adjustable tailgate allows you multiple cargo –carrying options and helps to accommodate two-tier loading.
