The new 2012 Chevy Colorado is a versatile truck. Many benefits come from features both standard and optional, from safety to convenience.
Four-wheel anti-lock brakes and stability control with traction control are valuable systems to have when needing to make emergency maneuvers. While they may help give more control and keep the vehicle on the road, more features are available should an accident happen involving a crash. Six airbags for the driver, front passenger and head-curtain side impact airbags give protection to the occupants. The steel safety cage and side-impact protection door beams reduce damage to the cab, reducing further injury.
As with most pickup trucks, the Colorado has both a 2WD and a 4×4 drive train. The two-wheel drive is efficient for drivers in mild weather climates and is best for fuel economy. In climates or terrains where four-wheel drive is needed, touch button shifting is available to easily switch between the two drives.
Depending on the truck’s size, engine and optional equipment, it’s possible to get up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 18 miles per gallon for city driving.
One of the major reasons to own a pickup truck is the ability to haul things. The Colorado is available with either a standard or a short cargo bed, making it easy to have just the right amount of space. A drop-in bed liner comes standard to help protect the bed bottom from scratches and dents.
If the cargo bed alone doesn’t have enough room for everything, a trailering package is available. With a maximum payload of up to 1,400 pounds, it should be quite possible to haul around practically anything.
The Colorado is big enough for tough jobs, yet small enough to use every day. For all of your Chevy needs visit Les Stanford Chevrolet Cadillac at 21730 Michigan Ave Dearborn, MI 48124.
