In this episode, we test drive the all new 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. The compact pick-up truck segment has seen some real innovation lately with Toyota, GM, Ford, and Honda all releasing sporty soft-roaders that, despite their size, aren’t afraid to rough it out. Launched alongside the GMC Canyon, Chevy’s Colorado offers performance and capability that its trucks are known for – in a compact package.Output is rated at 308hp (@6,600rpm) and 275lb-ft (@4,000rpm).
Our test model was equipped with a four-wheel drivetrain. The Colorado is also offered with an efficient 2.8-liter 4-cylinder diesel. Our real-world fuel range as-tested is 538km on a tank of gas and we achieved an average fuel economy of 13.8L/100km.
After using up a half tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $64.02 at a fuel cost of $1.07/liter.
