2019 Chevrolet Colorado

The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado is a class leader for a reason. While the rest of the domestic mid-size truck market is in the middle of a reboot, the Colorado has been going strong and refining its craft since 2014. Like it’s Silverado cousin, the Colorado is a strong mix of rugged performance and smooth on-road manners. With a range of engine, cab sizes, and bed lengths, the Colorado can perform any job, whether it be at the work site or in the carpool lane. This versatile vehicle is ready for anything.

To best suit your needs, the 2019 Chevy Colorado is offered in three configurations, two drive types, and three engines. Each of the engines boasts best-in-class in at least one important category. The 2.5L 4-cylinder standard engine has best-in-class fuel economy at 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway. The Duramax 2.8L turbo-diesel produces less horsepower, but makes up for it with the best torque, towing capacity, and fuel economy. The big 3.6L V6 leads the class in horsepower and towing capacity.

The Colorado is built to be the versatile pickup you need. In addition to its incredible towing capabilities, the Colorado is a smooth ride on just about any surface. The cabin features triple-sealed doors and thick glass, which makes it the quietest midsize truck on the road. All the better to hear your awesome available Bose® sound system. This pickup is built for smoothness and style in the city just as much as it’s made for its rough-and-ready capability.


The 2019 Colorado combines comfort and function. It offers easy-to-use controls and high-tech features. Intuitive gauges and accessible storage make your time in the driver’s seat convenient and stress-free.

The cabin features easy, secure storage and a nonskid space for charging devices. It also has up to four USB ports, so you can charge your device or hook it up through Chevrolet MyLink to play your favorite music. The Bluetooth connectivity through MyLink also gives you hands-free calling, and you can view your navigation on the 8-inch color touch-screen display. Chevrolet MyLink also hooks up to your compatible smartphone and gives you the ability to start or stop your engine and lock your doors from your phone.

Also present in the Colorado are technical features you wouldn’t expect in a mid-size truck. Keep your smartphone battery high with the optional wireless charging capability. Why deal with after-market cords when you can simply place your phone on the conveniently located charging pad? In addition to Chevrolet MyLink’s ability to control your music and calls, the Colorado is now equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. These two systems mirror some of the most popular apps on both devices, giving you easy access to maps, music services and podcast providers.

There’s also the Chrome Appearance package or Midnight Edition package to bring out the unique appearance you want from your vehicle. The safety and convenience packages are included with some trims, and give you helpful features like Forward Collision Alert, front fog lamps, the EZ-Lift & Lower Tailgate, and much more.


Colorado buyers have a choice of three engines:

  • 5-liter 4-cylinder with 200 horsepower
  • 6-liter V6 with 308 horsepower
  • 8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel with 181 horsepower

The Duramax turbo-diesel is the only diesel engine offered on any mid-size truck and is the perfect match for any buyer looking to do a considerable amount of towing – it can handle up to 7,700 pounds. The V6 can tow 7,000 pounds and is well-suited for weekend warriors needing to tow a boat or equipment for a home-improvement project while the 4-cylinder engine can pull 3,500 pounds. Payload varies across configurations and engine choices but tops out at 1,574 pounds. The 3.6-liter V6 also has cylinder deactivation, which means it can run on as few as two cylinders when carrying a light load.

The base trim is only available in 2-wheel drive, but the other three trims offer 4-wheel drive. The Z71 even features off-road suspension, so you can take that camping trip and not worry about mud or rough countryside slowing you down.

The Colorado comes equipped with four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife brake rotors to help reduce wheel shudder and provide a reassuring 183-ft stopping distance from 70 mph, which is 12 feet shorter than its closest competition. Electric power steering gives a confident, steady feel to the handling. The powertrain even beats out some full-sized models, making this a fierce competitor to beat. The 2019 Colorado has an amazing range of customization that lets you pick and choose what kind of performance you want from your pickup.

The 2019 Colorado has an incredibly refined interior to give you the most comfort no matter how heavy your load. The dash and center stack are a master-class in functionality. Gauges are easy to see and the multi-information screen in the middle of the dash provides vital facts and figures while minimizing the time your eyes spend off the road. Every button is within your reach and often-used controls are actual buttons – you don’t have to deal with haptic touch or mess with the infotainment screen to change the volume or adjust the thermostat.

The Colorado offers comfortable, supportive front seats trimmed in standard plush cloth or available smooth leather. The seats come standard in two plush cloth color schemes, and there are two more leather interior schemes available with a luxury package. Also available is a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated front seats for those cold mornings. If you want the option to carry passengers around plus extra storage when you’re going solo, the rear bench seats fold and pull up to reveal a storage compartment.

Chevrolet has taken care to make the cabin quieter than any other midsize pickup on the road, to help give you the most relaxing ride. Chevrolet MyLink comes with connectivity features to hook up your favorite music or radio stations, and the optional Bose® sound system has seven speakers for authentic acoustics for your music and clear sound for your in-vehicle calls. Smart phone addicts will appreciate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Colorado also has an available automatic climate control system, so you can set a temperature and let the vehicle moderate air flow for you. The convenience package also includes an electric rear window defogger and inside rearview mirror with auto-dimming. There’s no need to let condensation or bright headlights from behind impede your vision when you’ve got places to be.


Chevy has a history of innovation in safety, and the Colorado is no exception. You, your passengers, and anything that you’re towing are protected at all times. The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado features an extensive list of included and available safety features:

The 2019 Colorado also has Teen Driver technology, an innovative system that helps parents track their newest driver while also ensuring their safety. Teen Driver turns off audio until seat belts are buckled, automatically turns on your advanced safety features, and keeps a record of the drive so you can help the young driver learn and improve.
